Troubling Hadeeth?

Recommended Posts

Volume 6, Book 61, Number 577:

 

Narrated 'Ali:

 

I heard the Prophet saying, "In the last days (of the world) there will appear young people with foolish thoughts and ideas. They will give good talks, but they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out of its game, their faith will not exceed their throats. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for there will be a reward for their killers on the Day of Resurrection."

 

 

Could this be used to justify terrorist attacks against the west?

Yes..the foolish men are a sect who are called "khawarij" ...they make halal what Allah had made haram

Modern day terrorists are just their followers and Allah knows best

What is a Khariji and Who are the Khawarij?

 

Khariji or Kharijite: a follower of the Khawarij, or the attribute of following the Khawarij.

 

Khawarij: the group that expels people from the fold of Islam upon innovated principles and revolts against the rulers, causing much turmoil throughout the land

 

The original Khawarij were the descendents of a man named Dhul-Khuwaysarah, as prophesied by the Messenger of Allah (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace). They are the sect that were responsible for the killing of many of his companions. They differ from the followers of the Salaf (the Prophet and his companions) in that they do not restrict themselves to the understanding which the Salaf had when applying texts related to takfir (excommunication). Hence, they use textual evidences, but fall short in understanding them.

 

Regarding the Khawarij, Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, one of the great scholars of this time, said: "So having enthusiasm and an over-protective love for the religion is not sufficient. They must be founded upon knowledge and understanding of Allah's religion."
