ISIS are Khawarij, no doubt!


“He says: Oh our virtuous Shaykh! Some people say about the now present Islamic State that they are Khawarij. Is this correct?”


“No doubt. Their characteristics and their actions are the actions of the Khawarij. The State, we say that it is daa'ishiyyah. Yes. It is not to be said, it is not befitting to say that it is Islamic. It is to be said daa'ishiyyah. This is the appropriate name for it. An Islamic state slaughtering people with knives? Slaughtering people with knives and causing mischief and killing? This has nothing to do with Islam.”
