First of all I hope you understood that I was sarcastic when I wrote “ISLAMIC!!!” and “JIHADISTS!!!” in the subject.
If you want a quick crash course on the meaning of Jihad, you may want to check out this link here.
A few things (to mention only those which are kind of relevant here) which are undoubtedly (reference being Qur’an) completely prohibited (Haraam) in Islam are:
- Drinking Alcohol or Involving in its business
- Zina (unlawful sexual relations between people who are not married to one another through a Nikah)
- Riba (usury), Eating Pork and many others
A few spiritual practices (again not the full list) considered mandatory in Islam
- Praying 5 times a day
- Fasting during Ramadhan
- Giving Zakath
- Attending the Jumah prayers (every Friday)
If I have to describe about how well Islam teaches us about being honest, just, humble, helpful etc then I will need a different blog to explain them with strong references. In Shaa Allah I will do that soon. For now let me stick to the point here.
On 13th November 2015, there was a series of terrorist attacks done at the beautiful city of Paris. The terrorist group ISIS claimed the responsibility of it. Considering the Islamophobia which exists during the period, undoubtedly people started questioning ISLAM again!
Now let us check HOW “ISLAMIC!!!” THE PROFILE OF THE SO CALLED “JIHADISTS!!!” WERE…
The Paris attack suspects:
Abdelhamid Abaaoud (ringleader)
- Was jailed in Belgium in 2010 for an armed robbery, along with Abdeslams (profiled below)
- Close contact with Mehdi Nemmouche, a French – Algerian terrorist (profiled below)
- Never went to mosque
- Ran a Bar in Brussels
- Notorious for Drug violations
- Notorious for trafficking poisonous, narcotic and psychotropic substances
- Jailed together from early-December 2010 to early-January 2011 for drug trafficking (same jail and same time as Abaaoud (profiled above))
- Never went to mosque, never studied Islamic tradition
People who Inspired them:
- Was convicted of no less than seven crimes, including several thefts and armed robberies – committed between early 2004, when he was 18, and the end of 2007.
- Shot and killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels in May 2014
- Drew inspiration for the Brussels Jewish Museum attack from Mohammed Merah
- He was sentenced 15 times by a Toulouse juvenile court when he was a minor
- Possible use of drugs
- Many accusations of theft
For me these are a bunch of spoiled brats who are trying to live the violent video games which they would have played after getting too high with doses of drugs.
If you want references of true Muslims, you may want to please check-out some of the following (not given in any order and just to mention some of the ones whom I know about):
Caution: There are innumerable websites, books and references which are spreading hatred about Islam and Qu’ran. Please check with a Muslim brother before referring any of the suspicious websites, books or other references. You can always feel free to check with me as well. In Shaa Allah I will try the best in my knowledge to help or at least will try to guide you in the best of my knowledge.
