The Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) on ISIS Terrorist Group

ISIS threaten international peace

The Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) take a Virtual Roundtable about Measures of ISIS Terrorist Group by scholars of Global Alliance , including Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa, Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran, Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid, Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed, Professor Chandra Muzaffar and Ilgar Allahverdiyev.
Respect for human status, rights and dignity is the common features of all religions and cultures. Hence, terrorists must not be allowed to undermine these values in the region and in the world. The anti-human and criminal acts of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Al- Sham (ISIS) terrorist group in Syria and Iraq are not only crimes against humanity and human dignity, but also pose serious threats to regional and global peace. It must be borne in mind that the power of this terrorist group in Syria and Iraq poses serious threat to regional peace and security in the short term and to international peace and security in the long term. Therefore, the Muslim countries as well as the elites of the world of Islam should join hand to promptly develop regional and global mechanisms and strategic measures to face this terrorist group. Such measures not only will thwart the savage and inhumane acts of terrorist groups such as the ISIS in Iraq and the region, but also would be a platform for promotion of cooperation among Islamic states to prevent and uproot all terrorist groups in the region and the world. As an international Non-Governmental Organization, the Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) has always endeavored to preserve human values, peace and justice in the region and the world. In the light of the recent developments in the region, Dr. Davoud Ameri, the Secretary General of the IWPF has underlined the need to review the global discourse of fight against terrorism. In a letter to the UN Secretary General, His Excellency Ban Ki-moon, he has mentioned that the terrorist acts of ISIS in Iraq pose serious threats to the regional peace and stability. In continuation of its efforts to highlight the threat of this terrorist group, the IWPF organized a virtual roundtable with the participation of outstanding elites of the world. The main objective of the roundtable was to provide a platform for the elites to shed light on the threats posed the ISIS terrorist group and find out effective mechanisms to confront it in the region and other terrorist groups in the world.
The main themes of the roundtable were: Measures of the ISIS terrorist group in the region; the threats posed by the ISIS against regional and international peace and security; and violation of human rights and dignity by the ISIS.

  • What is your idea about the recent measures taken by the terrorist group, Islamic State in Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS)?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:


  1. Mrs. May El-Khansa (PhD in international Law, human rights activist in the Islamic world)
    The USA and Israel are plotting to introduce Islam as a radical and takfiri religion to allow Israel and US continue their crimes against Muslims and especially in Palestine and that’s what is happening now, they are killing Palestinians and nobody move. So, ISIS terrorist group has been formed to divert the world’s attention from the crimes being committed by the Zionists in Palestine.
    Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran (activist on terror charges against Spain’s Muslim community, peace activist)
    They are clearly contrary to Islam measures for human rights recognized by the United Nations and Human Intelligence and Reasoning.
    Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid (analyst and founder of a think-tank on international and political events in Pakistan)
    ISIS is terrorist gangs of Khawarij, created by the Mossad/MI6 to destroy the Muslim countries from within, ignite sectarian wars and pave the way for the creation of greater Israel in the Middle East. Rasul Allah (sm) had foretold us about this group in ahadees mubaraka of the end time and all the signs of khawarij foretold in ahadees about this group are fulfilled here. Muslims should unite to crush this fitnah with full force.
    Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed (Secretary –General of the Islamic National Movement)
    ISIS is a Wahhabi terrorist Group just like Al-Nusra Front and AL-Qaeda and several Others that are creations of Arrogant Powers Intelligence agencies and their Tools in the Middle East , They are mere tools that are commissioned to divide and reshape the Arab world into Weak Mini states that represent Religious and or Ethnic Minorities that will in turn weaken Arab and Muslim States in favor of Justifying A Strong Jewish State in the Heart of the Arab and Muslim States for decades into the Future.
    Professor Chandra Muzaffar (Head of the International Movement for a Just Peace)
    ISIS’s alleged brutal and barbaric killing of those who do not subscribe to its narrow, bigoted view of Islam confirms that the group is a vile and vicious terrorist outfit.
    Ilgar Allahverdiyev (President of the International Religious Liberty Association, Editor in Chief of the Deyerler newspaper)
    ISIS is the terrorist group created by Western special intelligence services and coordinated by intelligence and diversionary structures of Zionist regime. ISIS is formed to separate the Islam ummah and to prevent the unity process of Muslim countries. ISIS’s provocation in Iraq is an example of their policy to split the unity. Killing innocent people, spreading the death and destruction ISIS performs the wishes of own curators.
  • What are the threats posed by this terrorist group to international peace and world security?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:
Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa: Threats and danger from the terrorist group (Takfiri militants) are threatening peace in the entire region and the world. They form the most dangerous threat to the whole Middle East. And it’s known that the United States and some Gulf countries are backing these terrorist organizations, they want to dismember Iraq states.
Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran: Is globalization of terrorism, these armed terrorists ideological financially by Arab dictatorships, and militarily by the long arm of Zionism, will not relent in its efforts to create what they define as caliphate, although not more than a crude dictatorship crazy tie, and this terrorism exported to any corner of the planet where they are.

Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid: This is an Israeli article — one of the most clear evidence that Iraqi army is being systematically destroyed by the Americans to clear the way for the ISIS. There is NO US support to defeat ISIS, in fact, US is now destroying the Iraqi army… ISIS will be allowed to expand to a point, and then a Shia state will be allowed to stay in south. The final plan will then be complete for a massive sectarian war but for now, ISIS is being helped to gain ground.
Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed: Those Groups will turn eventually on their Masters when they realise the End Game, as they are not commissioned to fight proxy wars and go back to their countries, but they are sent to destroy and be destroyed.
Professor Chandra Muzaffar: ISIS is an affront to international law and global peace. If a group like ISIS is not confronted and defeated by the peace-loving people of the world, the seizure of power through terrorism may become a norm.
Ilgar Allahverdiyev: ISIS is the destructive group established to terror of people. Terrorism is the main line of ISIS and only program of their existence. So, taking into account this issue we can say that there will be no peace and public tranquility in the region until such terrorist groups exist. Countries of this region should understand the threat spreading by ISIS and begin the unity process against this real danger. It is necessary to achieve the success on breaking the financial and any support are provided by some countries. And the very important point is the governments that flirting with terrorists were needed to refuse from such policy.

  • What is your opinion about violation of human rights and human dignity by this group?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:
Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa: ISIS has committed numerous violations against women, men and children including murder and kidnappings. They also imposed oppressive rulings which violate the rights of people and degrade their dignity and liberty. They are as will many cases of rape of women by ISIS elements in both Iraq and Syria, they are coercing women to satisfy the sexual desires of ISIS gunmen under the so-called ‘sex jihad’, and forcing minor girls into marrying them.
Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran: Terrorism are applying it almost exclusive against Muslims, which doubly contradicts the teachings of the Quran, the atrocities carried out against prisoners or against “non-combatant” as civilian staff are an attack on Islam, human dignity and Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners.
Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid: Hundreds of Israeli troops have also joined ISIS ranks rampaging through the Muslim lands and looting and raping Muslim women. For the first time, Israeli army is aggressively operating in Iraqi and Syrian cities, within Muslim homes… Innalillahe inna ilehe rajeoon!!
Rasul Allah (sm) had clearly warned us against ISIS and now Muslims should be very careful of this fitnah, which is hijacking our faith and deen. The Kuffar know that real Khilafat ala minhaj UN NUbuwwat is close. Now this is the Mossad/CIA/Khawarij attempt to hijack it.
Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed: Those groups of criminals have no respect what so ever of human rights and human dignity and they have no limit to the type of crimes they commit, they are committed to terrorist ethnic and religious minorities leading to ethnic cleansing towards forming those Mini States that will in turn formulate the New Middle East that Arrogant Powers promoted.
Professor Chandra Muzaffar: When a group has no respect for human life, violation of human rights and human dignity becomes its way of life. In areas that the ISIS controls in Iraq and Syria beheadings are common. This is a total distortion of Islamic teachings.
Ilgar Allahverdiyev: ISIS terrorists encroach on people main right – the right to live. They perform multiple executions, punitive actions. The human life and dignity, such important values are absolutely far away from them. It is necessary to carry out the extensive PR among the people in order to show them the truth about ISIS. It is also important to stop the misinformation about this terrorist group and show to the world community ISIS’s true colors.

The conclusions of the participants regarding the threats posed by the ISIS to regional and international peace and security are summed up as follows:
The participants unanimously concluded that the measures of the terrorist ISIS group in Iraq and the region pose serious threats to regional and international peace and security and too aggressive, inhumane acts of the ISIS are stark violation of human rights and dignity. Muslim countries and the international community are asked to confront this terrorist group to prevent further threats to regional and international order and peace.

History of Khawarij

khawarij Islam

Al-Khawarij is plural for “Kharij”, meaning one who rebels against the acknowledged Muslim ruler whom Islam obliges every Muslim to obey and not rebel against.

This definition of Al- Khawarij, which is taken from Islamic terminology, has become a trademark for the twelve thousand Muslims who rebelled against Caliph Ali bin Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, and this includes all the groups that followed their way of understanding the religion.

These groups have since been known as “Al-Khawarij” even though they carried different names.

Among those groups are: Al- Muh’akkimah, Ash- Sharat, Al- ‘Haroriyyah, An- Nawa-sib, and Al- Mariqhah.

Al-Khawarij are the people whom the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, mentioned when he said, what translated means, “A group will go astray during a time of division between Muslims. The closest among the adversaries (the side of Ali bin Abi Talib and the side of Mu’awiyah) to the Truth will kill them (the deviant group, Al-Khawarij).”

Also, the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, said regarding a man who once accused him of injustice, “From among the offspring of this man there will rise a people who will read the Quran but it will not go beyond their throats (meaning it will not enter their hearts). They will kill Muslims and spare Idol-worshippers. They will deviate from Islam (as fast and clean) as an arrow pierces the game. If I live to witness their appearance, I will kill them as the people of ‘Aad (whom Allah utterly destroyed and annihilated because of their disbelief) were killed.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].

He further said, “Just before the end of time, young, idiotic people will rise. They will say words similar to (the good words) of the best people. They will recite the Quran, but it will not go beyond their throats. They will deviate from the religion as fast as an arrow pierces the game. If you meet them, kill them, for killing them will bring about a reward from Allah on the Day of Resurrection for whoever kills them.” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim].

The companions of the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, were unanimous in their decision to fight Al-Khawarij. Also, the majority of the scholars of Islam state that it is an obligation to fight them.

Soon after they appeared as a distinct group, Al-Khawarij divided into seven groups, among them Al- Muh’akkimah who fought Ali bin Abi Talib.

Al-Khawarij accused Ali [blessings of Allah on him] of Kufr and announced their animosity towards him. They departed to Haroraa’ and chose two men as their leaders, one to lead them in prayer and the other to lead their forces in battle. When Ali realized the danger posed by these people, he sent Abdullah Ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, to debate them and expose their erroneous ways. Ibn Abbas argued with them and refuted the arguments supporting the positions they took. Many of them abandoned the camp of Al-’Haroriyyah and rejoined the camp of Caliph Ali bin Abi Talib.

However, their leaders and those who remained with them refused to abandon their rebellion against the righteous Khalifah, Ali [blessings of Allah on him]. They announced that their campaign of war against their adversaries will continue. Ali bin Abi Talib then decided to meet them himself.

He called upon them to rejoin the ranks of the Khalifah and abandon their deviant ways. He also refuted their arguments and nullified their misguided way of understanding the religion.

However, they persisted in their defiance of the Khalifah and camped their forces at the area of An-Nahrawan.

On their way to An-Nahrawan, Al-Khawarij met Abdullah — the son of Khabbab bin Al-Aratt, a noble companion of the Messenger Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, and seized him. They asked him, “Who are you?” He replied, “I am Abdullah bin Khabbab, the companion of the Messenger Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam.” They said, “Narrate to us a Hadith you heard from your father who related it to the Messenger Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam.” He said, “I heard my father say, ‘The Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, said, ‘There will be a Fitnah (calamity and division) in which those who sit idle are better than those who walk, and those who walk are better than those who rush. Therefore, whoever has no choice but to kill or be killed, let him be killed and let him not be the killer.’” They asked him, “What do you say regarding Abu Bakr and Umar?” Abdullah said good words of praise regarding them. They said, “What do you say with regards to At- Ta’hkim (when Ali and Mu’awiyah reverted to some of the companions to judge between them in their dispute, according to the Quran and Sunnah)?”

He said, “I say that Ali has better knowledge in the Book of Allah, is more careful with the religion, and has more wisdom than you!” They said, “You do not follow the Truth and Guidance. Rather, you follow men according to their fame.” They then said to him, “This Quran (which you carry) around your neck commands us to kill you.” He said, “Whoever the Quran preserves his life, you preserve his life in turn. And whoever the Quran sheds his blood, give him death in turn.” Then, they brought Abdullah bin Khabbab closer to the river, and one of them, Musmi’ bin Qhadali, slit his throat. Then, they entered his house and killed his children and also his wife, who was pregnant, and slit open her stomach.

When Ali bin Talib heard what Al-Khawarij did to Abdullah bin Khabbab and his family, he led an expedition of four thousand soldiers to arrest those who committed this atrocity. When he reached their area, he asked them to deliver those who killed Abdullah. They said to Ali’s emissary, “We all killed him. And, furthermore, if we catch you (meaning Ali) we will kill you too.” Then, Ali prepared to fight them.

But before the battle commenced, he asked them, “What do you dislike as regards my matter?” They said, “We hate that you, when we fought with you on the Day (incident) of Al-Jamal, allowed for us their (the side of ‘Aaishah, Tal’hah, and Az-Zubair) possessions after we defeated them but did not allow us to seize their women and children as slaves. Why did you allow us to shed their blood and seize their possessions but not their women and children?” Ali said, “I only allowed you to seize their possession in return for their looting the Muslim treasury in the city of Basrah before I came to meet them (to convince them to end their rebellion). As for their women and children, they did not fight against us and they, therefore, still enjoyed the rights of Muslims who live in the Islamic state. Also, if I had allowed their women for you, who among you would have liked to take ‘Aaishah (the Prophet’s wife) as his share?” They became ashamed and silent.

Thereafter, Ali refuted all their arguments and, as a consequence, eight thousands of them rejoined his camp. However, four thousands of them insisted on fighting, led by Abdullah bin Wahb Ar-Rasibi and Thu Al-Khuwaysirah (also known as Thu Ath-Thadiyyah), whose name was Hurqus bin Zaid.

Soon afterwards, the battle between Ali and Al-Khawarij commenced, and Ali’s army defeated and killed them all except nine people.

After the battle ended, Ali ordered his soldiers to search for Thu Ath- Thadiyyah, who was then found among the dead. Ali then said, “Allah and His Messenger have said the truth,” because before he passed away, the Prophet Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam had told Ali that he should search for Thu Ath-Thadiyyah among the dead when he meets these rebels.

This sect of Al-Khawarij, also known as Al-Mu’hakkimah, considers Uthman, Ali, ‘Aaishah, Tal’hah, and Az-Zubair as Kuffar. They also oblige the removal or assassination of the Muslim ruler who does not agree with their way of understanding the religion.

Furthermore, they accept the Muslim Ummah being leaderless, allow shedding the blood of the women and children of their adversaries, consider those who fall into major sins as Kuffar, and prohibit marrying the women of those who do not follow them, because they consider them also as Kuffar.

Also, among the sub-sects of Al-Khawarij is Al-Bayhasiyyah. They are the followers of Abu Bayhas, Al- Haytham bin Jabir. They claim that knowledge is only knowing Allah and what the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, was sent with. They consider whoever falls into an action not knowing if it permissible or forbidden as Kafir, since he lacks the “knowledge”.

Al-Azariqhah is another Khawarij sub-sect. They are the followers of Nafi’ bin Al-Azraqh who was known as Abu Rashid. When he first appeared, he rebelled against Abdullah bin Az-Zubayr — a companion of the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam. Many people from Oman and Al-Yamamah also joined Nafi’. They later moved to Persia and took over the area of Al- Ahwaz after they killed Abdullah bin Az-Zubayr’s deputy in that area. They soon controlled Al-Ahwaz and adjacent areas in Persia.

As is the case with other deviant sects, Al-Azariqhah consider their adversaries as Kuffar. They consider those who join their ranks as believers and all others who do not as Kuffar. Yet, they believe that whoever joins their ranks must first be tested to prove his allegiance by ordering him to kill a Muslim captive. Otherwise, he would be killed himself. Also, Al- Azariqhah permit killing the women and children of their adversaries and consider those adversaries to be bound to dwell in Hell for eternity along with their women and children. They also consider the areas that do not join them to be areas of Kufr. Furthermore, they abandon stoning the adulterer, compel women to pray and fast while in their menses, consider Muslims who commit major sins as Kuffar, and allow shedding the blood of Muslims who do not join their ranks. Yet, they prohibit shedding the blood of Jews and Christians who live under Muslim control!

This is just as the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu Alayhi Wasallam, described them that, “They kill Muslims and spare idol-worshippers.” Also, Al-Azariqhah would cut the hand and arm of the thief, while Islam commands cutting the thief’s hand only from the wrist. They also claim that the Ayah,

‘And of mankind there is he whose speech may please you (O Mohammad) in this worldly life.’[2:204], describes Ali bin Abi Talib, and that the Ayah,

‘And of mankind is he who would sell himself, seeking the Pleasure of Allah.’ [2:207], describes Ibn Muljim, the cursed criminal who killed Ali, may Allah be pleased with him.

We have shown how this deviant sect, Al-Khawarij, divided among themselves, and we also clarified the major beliefs of different Khawarij sub-sects.

From this short summary of their beliefs and practices, we now know the imminent danger of their beliefs, many of which still flourish among ignorant Muslims in the present time.

The beliefs of Al-Khawarij have always been and still pose grave danger to Islam and Muslims.

We ask Allah for protection and safety from the misguided beliefs of Al-Khawarij and their likes, for He is the All-Hearer and the only One Who fulfills the Du’aa’.


The story of Ibn Abbas’s (May Allah be pleased with him and his Father) debate against them is in the Mustadrik of Hakam (2/150-152) in an authentic chain and upon the conditions of acceptance of Imam Muslim.

In it is the statement of Ibn Abbas:

“I come to you from the Companions of the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) from amongst the Muhajireen and Ansaar to inform you of what they say. They were present when the Qur’an was revealed, and they are more knowledgeable about the revelation than you are and were present at its descending, and not a single one of you is from them. So some of them said: لا تخاصموا قريشاً Do not dispute with a person from the Quraish because

Allah says:  ‘But they are a quarrelsome people.’

Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him and his Father) said:

“I never saw a people striving harder in doing deeds. Their faces were marked with lines from abstaining from sleep. It was as if their hands and knees praised them.

So those who were present proceeded, and some of them said,

“By Allah we will speak to him and debate what he says

I asked:“Why do you have resentment against the cousin of the Messenger of Allah ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) his in-laws, the Muhajireen and Ansaar? They said:” (because of) Three things”

I asked: “What are they?”

They said: “As for the first one it is that he made men arbitrators in the matters of Allah. And Allah said:

Verily! The decision rests only with Allah’ [Yusuf: 67]

I said: “ This is one”

And they said:

As for the other, it is that he fought and did not take captives or booty of war. If the ones being fought are disbelievers, then indeed it is permissible to take them captive and take the booty of war, and if they were believers it would not be permissible to fight them.

I said: “ That’s two, so what is the third one?

They said: “He wiped out the title of ‘Amir al-Mu’mineen’ for himself, so he is the Amir of the disbelievers.”

I said: “Do you have anything others than these?

They said: “This suffices us”

So I said to them:

“If I read of the Qur’an and Sunnah that which refutes these claims, will you be pleased? They said: “Yes” So I said:

As for your statement: ‘A man has arbitrated in the matter of Allah’, I will read to you what has given the power of arbitration to men concerning a killed rabbit and the likes of that which is hunted which price is worth a quarter of a dirham. Allah says:

O you who believe! Kill not game while you are in a state of Ihram (for Hajj or ‘Umrah), and whosoever of you kills it intentionally, the penalty is an offering, brought to the Ka’bah, of an eatable animal (i.e. sheep, goat, cow, etc.) equivalent to the one he killed, as adjudged by two just men among you; [Maidah: 95]

I ask you by Allah, is the arbitration of men concerning a rabbit and its like of hunted animals better than their arbitration regarding bloodshed and reconciliation between themselves? And you are aware that if Allah wished he would have decided the matters himself and not left it to men. And concerning a woman and her husband Allah says:

“If you fear separation between them, appoint an arbitrator from his family and from her family; if they both wish for peace, Allah will cause their reconciliation” [Nis’aa: 35]

So Allah has made the judgement of men a reliable Sunnah. Have I convinced you on this?” They replied: : نعم! “Yes” (I said to them):

Regarding your saying ‘You fought them, but did not seize their booty nor capture them,’ Can you capture your Mother ‘Aisha then make permissible concerning her what is permissibility concerning other female slaves.

If you say that she can be captured and treated like any of the other female slaves, you have surely committed disbelief, because she is your mother. If you say that ‘she is not our mother’ than you have also committed disbelief, for Allah says:

The Prophet is closer to the believers than their ownselves, and his wives are their (believers’) mothers (as regards respect and marriage). [Ahzab: 6]

You are thus hovering between two deviations. Whichever one you go towards, you go towards misguidance.”

So some of them began to look at each other.I asked: “Have I convinced you?” They replied: “Yes” (I said to them):

And as for your statement that he wiped out the title of ‘Amir al- Mu’mineen’ for himself, I will show and bring you proof by one whom you are pleased with. I heard on the Day of Hudaybiyyah, when the treaty was being drafted by Suhail bin Amr and Abu Sufyan bin Harb, the Messenger of Allah ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) say to the Amir ul Mu’mineen: “Write O’ ‘Ali: ‘This is what has been agreed upon by Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah’.” The Mushrikeen objected to this saying: “No, By Allah, if we believed that you were the Messenger of Allah, we would not have fought you.” Upon this, the Messenger of Allah ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: O’ Allah you know that I am the Messenger of Allah. Write O’ Ali ‘This is what has been agreed upon by Muhammad bin Abdullah.’ …For I swear by Allah that the Messenger of Allah ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) is better than Ali, and erasing his title did not remove his Prophethood.’

Abdullah Bin Abbas (May Allah be Pleased with him and his Father) said:

So (after this), two-thousands of them (the Khawaarij) returned to the truth and the rest of them were killed upon falsehood.
