What ISIS did to Islam, and without vigilance it will happens again

 

Now don’t scroll down if you fear symbols.

If you ask yourself, how can we create fear to the extent that armies run? Very few could come up with a easy answer. But someone did. The Iraqi army had 30,000 soldiers and another 30,000 federal police stationed in the city of Mosul, facing a 1,500-member attacking force.The army fled and left every little peace of equipment they had.

The flag. The black and white one promoted in propaganda films, shown on every broadcast and visible all over social media. It became the symbol of Daesh, isis, jihad and everything bad that ever existed. One might think the text on the flag is something terrible.  But it’s part of hijacking Islam. The flag was used by Abu Muslim in a shia uprise and have existed since 747 ad. The flag has been used in contemporary islamism and jihadism since the late 1990s

So what does it say? The white banner at the top of the flag reads: “There is no god but Allah [God]. Mohammad is the messenger of Allah.” This phrase is a declaration of faith used across Islam, and is known as the shahada.

Underneath is a white circle emblazoned with black writing reading “Mohammed is the messenger of God”, which is meant to resemble the Prophet’s seal, similar to that used to close an envelope.

So if you’re not a Muslim this flag probably gives you the chill. It stands for death (as in genocide), tyranny, hatred, and so many ungodly actions that it’s incomprehensible. And if you’re a Muslim (and not were killed by them) you probably think the same.

It is way to easy to steal a flag these days.

 The word Islam means submission, purity and peace. I’ve been asked by Islamophobic people: Isn’t it terrible? Submission? Who does that?Well, I dare to say that if you have a belief, you submit to it, right? So does all religious followers in various ways. Christians call themselves followers. How do you follow a belief without submitting to it?

If there were commandments in Islam the first one would probably be the same as in Christianity – There is only one God. Or La ilaha illallah, (Link: Song in arabic) in arabic. The oneness of God is called Tawheed. The word Allah means God. In a Arabic bible the word for God is Allah.

I welcome your thoughts on my writings. 🙂

  1. Islamic eschatology states that a caliphate will be established indeed before the veritable end of the world. Most Muslims are aware/have heard of this. I assume those Iraqi forces saw that flag & immediately remembered the stuff they heard about the future caliphate & ran away, thinking they could not fight against people who they believed came forward to fulfil a prophecy.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of Muslims were very puzzled & confused about ISIS in its early days of rise(I was too) thinking about what they heard/learnt in eschatology & trying to correlate it. They realised the sham & retardation much later.

    The word Islam means submission. Salam means peace. Please don’t confuse the 2. They come from the same root letters but they have different meanings for sure.
