Nowadays, there are those who call the Muslim youth and the Muslims in general to a new methodology, a methodology of partisanship, causing them to split into groups and parties. They say that this is the correct methodology, i.e. joining the likes of Jabhat un-Nusrah, ISIS (Dā’esh), Al-Qā’idah and the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwān ul-Muslimīn).
Answer by the Muftī Shaykh Abdul-Azīz Āl us-Shaykh:
Oh my brothers, all of these modern day groups are astray (from the right path), if you were to examine (them) carefully you will find that they do not have the slightest connection to Islām.
They interpret Islām in accordance with their opinions and desires, thereby deceiving the people. They are truly misguided, they make lawful the spilling of blood, they violate sanctity, loot wealth and cause corruption in the earth.
All of these my brothers, are false methodologies, behind them is whoever is behind them. There is no good in them (inaudible), nor in the people who follow these methodologies. Whoever calls our youth to join these misguided groups, then he is indeed mistaken and has strayed from the right path (i.e. the correct understanding of Islām).
