The Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) constitutes the most serious threat Islam has ever faced. To justify its horrible crimes and appeal to Muslims around the world, ISIS has based its ideology on a superficial and literalist approach to the Sacred Texts of Islam - the Holy Qur'an and the Prophetic Tradition. ISIS manipulates religion to brainwash angry young Muslims, who have little knowledge of Islamic theology and jurisprudence. Therefore, the Muslim scholars are obliged to respond with a counter-narrative that elucidates the reality of Islam and its commitment to tolerance. There exists a plethora of proofs that demonstrates ISIS’ actions do not represent Sunni Islam and its claims are based on clear fallacies. The author, Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi, a renowned scholar and one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world today, presents in this invaluable book a thorough refutation of ISIS’ beliefs and crimes. Providing authentic quotes that destroy the allegations of ISIS, Shaykh Al-Yaqoubi reaches the conclusion that this group does not represent Islam, its declaration of a caliphate is invalid, and fighting it is an obligation upon Muslims.Über den Autor:
Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi is a world-renowned Islamic scholar of theology, jurisprudence, Prophetic tradition, and a spiritual leader to thousands of Muslims across the globe. He has been named one of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world for the past five years (theMuslim500.com). Shaykh Al-Yaqoubi was born in Damascus in 1963 and trained from an early age in the Islamic sciences by his father, who was an Imam and instructor at the Grand Umayyad Mosque in Damascus. He descends from a scholarly family that traces its lineage back to the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Three of his ancestors were also Imams at the Grand Umayyad Mosque. A Sufi Master of the Shadhili Order, his primary focus is on the purification of the heart, the spiritual well being of Muslims, and the rectification of their social conduct and interaction within society based on highest virtues of the Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him). He has travelled around the world teaching Muslims, and bringing awareness to and spreading moderate Islam. Thousands of students have studied under him, many of whom are now Imams and teachers in the Islamic World – in the Arab world, the West, the Far East, and South Africa. Shaykh Al-Yaqoubi was one of the first scholars to speak up against the Assad regime and subsequently, against the rise of ISIS, denouncing its atrocities and proving its actions to be un-Islamic. To this end, he has delivered numerous lectures, penned articles, and given several TV and paper interviews to media agencies such as CNN, BBC, and PBS. He is the author of several books in Arabic in the areas of Islamic law and Prophetic Tradition. He speaks Arabic, English, and Swedish, and reads French and German.
