by Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada,
Published by Al-Karam.
ISIS : State of Ignorance is an uncomplicated and comprehensive discourse that begins by expounding the centrality of moderation within every aspect of Islam and the Muslims way of life. Understanding this moderation is key when searching for an authoritative description of Islam and looking for means to counter the narratives of extremism, terrorism and now the phenomenon of Daeshism.
The discourse continues with a reflection on the nature of extremism and its relation to terrorism, as well as Islam’s unequivocal caution concerning both. Furthermore, an analysis of the Qur’anic term fitnah in the context of the present-day emergence of ISIS (Daesh) is presented with simplicity and great clarity. This is an important read for anyone looking for answers.
