1. Many scholars have researched the so-called proofs of the extremists and found that they are not sincere or at least helplessly ignorant of the sources which they have picked out of the ocean of Mercy which constitutes the Islamic teachings.
They are definitely not sincere in that they deceive the uninformed (Muslims as well as non-Muslims) because
→ they generalize what is meant to be specific,
→ they go so far as to falsifying prophetic reports, or
→ they follow abstruse interpretations by marginal scholars, such scholars who are not acknowledged by the general consensus of the time-proven traditional schools of jurisprudence in Islam.
→ and most importantly: they deny and rid themselves from the overriding principle of mercy in Islam.
In their deviated ways they shun away from this supreme principle taught by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ through the Holy Quran:
The answer to violent extremism amongst Muslims is tasawwuf. Not Sufi clubs; but tazkiyat al-nafs.
Spiritually lost and imbalanced individuals struggling with self-loathe, insecurities, jealousy, and other emotions, unable to control them, are filled with anger and frustration. Instead of directing the anger and frustration towards their lower self (nafs), they take the easy way out and target the temptations.
The solution, however, is to instead target the very essence of the temptations themselves, to purify the self from desiring that which is displeasing to the One, and transform into desiring the Book and the Sunnah.
Sh. Isa Husayn J, 2017-03-28
This is the role of tasawwuf.
One of the reasons why the extremists are able to do this - thereby deceiving quite a few well-meaning Muslims - is that - in the wake of colonization in the 18 & 1900s - the Muslim nation has not only lost its ruling system (1924 Khalifah, Shariah, its scholars, its Islamic universities and the whole teaching structures), but also its own law enforcement and security forces, which would have taken care of those criminals.
Hieronymus Bosch, 16th century AD
2. Another reason for the rebellion of the ignorant extremists is the ongoing military onslaught on the Muslim ummah. The arrogant powers of the West and the East in countries such as Kashmir, Palestine, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen etc. constantly ignite the flames of hatred by their meddling and interference. Profits so gained are never enough for the military-industrial complex and their lackeys in countries such as the United States of America, Israel, Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, India etc.
Another reason for this kind of supremacist policy of engendering despair in people -especially among the young generation - is the ongoing encroachment into the countries of the South and their exploitation, many of which are Muslim countries, by the elites of the West and the East, without an option for self-governance and true independence.
It is difficult to convince people of the benevolence of the Western and Eastern powers when decade after decade their countries' economic bases are eroded, or when they have to survive military and other attacks by those who pretend otherwise. This neocolonialism and ongoing nepotism by corrupt leaders is a danger to all people of the world.
3. The situation is aggravated by the fact that on top of those economic injustices - which are well-known by now - there is levelled a materialistic, hedonistic cultural policy which objectively aims at the destruction of the traditional societies of the South, not the least Muslim traditional ones. Tradition* does not fit well into the grinding process of commercialization and the ensuing degradation of the human fabric as envisioned by the modern globalists.
These policies aim at destroying age-proven values such as the centrality of the Sacred, and includes the practice of religion and of fundamental values of morality and decency.
The Muslim world seeks to reassert its independence, and rightly so, but by any means? Certainly not. We should all inform us about how the Holy Prophet ﷺ dealt with all kinds of challenges and how his struggle was always for the pleasure of Allah سبحانه و تعالى .
If Muslims could choose freely they would prefer to be left alone and manage their own affairs, but this is not the policy of the arrogant ’super-powers’.
May Allah save the Muslim Ummah!
May Allah awaken the people of the North, the West and the East to the fact that they themselves are victims of this greedy, profane and immoral way of life, which has no other end but its own destruction.
May all people of good intent turn to the Way of the Prophet ﷺ , who improved his people’s lot and in extension of the people of the world - if only they take up his guidance.
Allah knows best & most!

“From 2007 to 2016, domestic extremists killed 372 people. 74% of these murders were from white supremacists.”
