Quranists Are the Solution to Combat ISIS, and Yet!

Firstly: email messages sent to us about ISIS:

1- With an aching heart, we remember messages sent to us from our beloved Quranists who used to live in Al-Raqa, Syria, which was occupied by ISIS terrorists. They expected to be murdered in any minute, and with the passage of time, they stopped sending us their news via email, and we thought they have been murdered, and thus bearing witness before God about our miserable age. Quranists in Syria used to secretly proselytize Quranism among their relatives and acquaintances who converted to atheism as they hated Islam when they thought that it is the image/version offered by ISIS. Those faithful Syrian Quranists are forgotten, unsung heroes who managed to show via Quranism how ISIS terrorists are the enemies of real Islam and that the ISIS organization is sponsored by the axis of evil, the Saudi KSA, which never cease to maintain, to its advantage, weakness of countries around it: Egypt, Iraq, the Levant, Yemen, and the Gulf monarchies, so that the Saudi royal family members with their Wahabi religion remain controlling the so-called 'Islamic' world, especially the 'Muslim' community in the USA and Europe.     

2- After Al-Mosul has been liberated from ISIS, many email messages reached us to ask about many issues, and we used to publish their questions and our answers to them in the fatwas section on our website. The following message, sent to us by an Iraqi man, which we partially quote here, piqued our interest: (... Peace be with you Dr. Mansour ... I'm from Al-Mosul, and we've been liberated from ISIS weeks ago ... I used to work as an engineer in an Iraqi  State Security body, and ISIS who occupied Al-Mosul forced us to 'repent' from our job to avoid being massacred ... When I saw their savage penalties of beheading and stoning, as well as their crimes of looting sabotage, enslavement, rape, etc. , I kept wondering about the sort of gods they worship ... I became an atheist for a while, as I lost faith ... But a female relative of mine (whom I discovered that she has been a Quranist 'in the closet') told me to read your archive of books and articles ... I admire your intellectual endeavors and your Quranism school of thought immensely ... I've rejected atheism and the Sunnite religion and become a Quranist myself ... All idols and holy cows of the Sunnite religion are out of my mind and heart now thanks to you, Sir, and I reject now all hadith since I know the real faith of monotheism now ... Please accept to grant me the honor of creating an account for me as a writer on your website ...)

3- Our reply to him: You are welcome to our Quranism website; please sent your data to the chief coordinator of our website who will create an account for you soon, and we urge you to read more in our archive and archives of articles authored by other Quranists so that you will be qualified as a writer to join us, and you can write articles about Iraq and ISIS, using a pseudonym if you like, to write without restrictions, as many of our fellow Quranists do indeed use pen names to avoid being persecuted in their respective countries.

 

Secondly: a very important email message from an American Muslim of Afghan-Saudi Uzbekistani origin: 

1- This youth has sent us this important message: (... Dear Dr. Mansour, ...  I know several languages perfectly apart from Arabic, and I would like to help you on your website, because Quranism must reach Truth seekers who do not know Arabic and may share the ideas of our intellectual school if it reached them in their own language, because there are millions of non-Arab Muslims who do not know the Arabic language, especially among my people ... I was born in Afghanistan, but raised in the KSA, but my origins are from Turkestan (i.e., the current Uzbekistan) ... I live now in NJ, the USA ... Sadly, all mosque in NJ are owned by Sunnites, Shiites, and Sufis ... Before my life in the USA, I used to suffer persecution and discrimination in various stages of my life ... This led me to reconsider religion that I've inherited from my parents and if it contains items related to many types of injustice or not ... Deep inside, I was on the verge of converting to atheism; for a long time I toyed with the idea ... But I decided to re-read Sunnite books with a critical eye, especially the ones imposed on the societies I used to live in, by the KSA ... My doubts drove me to read more deeply as I grew up, and I've discovered the vast abyss of difference between the Quranic text and man-made books of fiqh and hadiths authored by modern scholars and Middle-Ages theologians who flattered caliphs ... When I used to discuss ideas that undermine the so-called Sunna and hadiths, people around me used to get extremely vexed and annoyed and some even threatened me ... Inside NJ, the USA, I accidentally asked one preacher at a Sunnite mosque if he really believes in all hadiths in Sunnite books, but his roundabout manner of giving me a vague answer vexed me and when I insisted on being satisfied by receiving a clear-cut answer, he shouted at me in an agitated manner that he doubted that I'm a Quranist 'infidel apostate' who are heretic deniers of hadiths. This is the very first time I hear about Quranists, and when I googled them, I've come across your great website ... I take pride now in being a Quranist ... Believe me, there are so many people who seek the Truth and do not know about Quranism because they do not understand the Arabic tongue ... They should be helped by all means, I think ...).

2- Our reply to him: You have made us very happy reading your massage. We beseech you to participate in our intellectual peaceful jihad online to show real Islam within cyberspace and to clear the name of the great religion of Islam from crimes of its enemies who ascribe their atrocities to Islam to tarnish its image. The real arch-enemies of Islam are not only ISIS terrorists, but also those who spread and propagate the cursed religion of ISIS (Sunnite Wahabism) inside the Middle East, the USA, and Europe. We personally as the founder of Quranism and as a researcher of history of the Muhammadans have enough expertise in Islam (the Quran alone) and in Muhammadans and their history, tenets, denominations, sharia laws, and doctrines etc., but our modest means and impecuniousness prevent us from reaching more people or to spread and propagate knowledge of Quranism to millions of the Muhammadans whom we seek to reform to make themselves real Muslims and peaceful ones. Enemies of Quranism and Quranists own billions of $ and are too powerful with full authority, and they are clever and resourceful in imposing media black-out on Quranism and Quranists and tarnish the reputation of us as a thinker and all Quranists, though we have nothing but our only website and our brains and knowledge. Please read our book (in English) titled "The Cursed Religion of ISIS" found on this link:

http://www.ahl-alquran.com/arabic/book_main.php?main_id=73         

 

Thirdly: Quranists are the solution, and yet!

1- In a conference we attended in Texas, as have shown how and why Quranists are the solution to intellectually refute the terrorist Wahabi thought of ISIS from within the Quran. Here is the link of that video containing the speech we have delivered:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQrZaYGb7_4

 And yet, those who should be concerned never pay attention to Quranism as the ideal solution to engage into the intellectual war of ideas, using the Quran to refute and undermine ISIS, that will save the USA and the West billions of $  and save the lives of thousands of people worldwide.

2- We are experts in the peaceful intellectual war of ideas against ISIS and other Wahabi terrorist organizations like Salafists, Al-Qaeda, and the MB. Indeed, ISIS terrorists are waging an intellectual war against the USA and the West in general as they recruit Sunnite and Wahabi youths there to turn them into time bombs (and suicide bombers) who will explode anytime upon orders of ISIS. No military power in the globe can search people's minds, hearts, or conscience or to chase away any type of destructive ideas. The only way to debunk Wahabi terrorist notions of ISIS is through the intellectual, peaceful, Quranist war of ideas that will cost very little but will produce great results in combating ISIS. Indeed, with our modest means and only website here, we have made a huge difference worldwide; as the number of Quranists increases in many countries now. We can win more people to real peaceful Islam if we have the means one day to contact and reach 1.5 billion Muslims (whom we call the Muhammadans who follow earthly, man-made religions and not the Quran) via media and satellite channels as well as producing TV series (whose scripts we have authored already) that address 'Muslims' with all their languages.     

3- Most of the Muhammadans (who think they are Muslims) learn until now the religious culture of ISIS from mosques, media, schools, and universities dominated by Wahabis worldwide, especially in the Arab world. Even period drama TV series about history of 'Muslims' are being used to propagate Sunnite Wahabism and present erroneous views of history that distort it to hide the truth and to serve Wahabi ideology and inculcate it to viewers in the Arab world. Reforming ordinary 'Muslims', who cannot read in Arabic or do not bother to read, via TV series written by us is more influential than books that are rarely read. Our scripts for TV series exposes directly and indirectly unspoken-of historical events of the caliphs and all Wahabis. Such TV series of enlightenment use attractive means of the art of script writing to appeal to the minds and hearts of viewers to make ideas sink deep inside them, making them think and reconsider Sunnite Wahabism which is exposed and debunked. When such TV series are produced one day, they can be dubbed or subtitled into several languages spoken by the Muhammadans: Arabic, Persian, Urdu, French, English, etc.       

4- Indeed, this is a very profitable and lucrative business that will enable the West to win the intellectual war of ideas against ISIS and the Saudi Wahabism, and its costs will be less than the costs of one year of fighting using high-tech weapons, bombs, and warplanes etc., while saving thousands of innocent people and sparing their lives. The battlefield of this intellectual war of ideas against ISIS and Wahabi ideology of terror is the whole globe: hence, such TV series can be marketed in all countries from China to Argentina, and such Quranist reformist TV series will reach billions worldwide. Let us not forget that the war on terror is a global one centered in the cyberspace. Indeed, the Wahabi ISIS organization is terrorizing now Russia, China, and the USA, and it must be combatted within a global war worldwide, peacefully through Quranism if propagated enough in media and through TV series we talk about.       

5- Military power never wins any battles or wars in the modern age; rather, in creates more wars and battles as well as revenge-seeking enemies. The American quagmire in Vietnam and Iraq are sufficient examples of what we refer to here. When the military power aims to kill enemies, this is done and leads to the desire for revenge as well as sentiments of fury and resentment that create millions of relentless revenge-seeking enemies. Enemies sought to be killed by any military power are human beings after all that are being annihilated. In contrast, within the peaceful intellectual war of ideas, human beings are never enemies; the real enemies are the dangerous ideas harbored in their minds and lead them to perform suicide bombings and/or to massacre hundreds of people. Certainly, the Quranist intellectual war of ideas will save lives of potential victims as well as the lives of terrorists-to-be, and instead to metamorphosing into ISIS terrorists or Wahabi criminals, they will be law-abiding, good citizens in their respective societies. Military power weapons are sued to commit more bloodshed, with little results in combating terrorism, and the resulting vicious circle of vendetta or revenge  and military combat will spiral endlessly. The Quranist intellectual, peaceful war of ideas to undermine Wahabi ideology of ISIS spares the lives of both potential victims and potential terrorists and includes no bloodshed or violence at all. Weapon of this intellectual, peaceful war of ideas that will spare lives of thousands are the pen, the keyboard, books, researchers, articles, websites,  media, TV channels, and TV series. All such tools can be used in the enlightenment process with long-lasting effect for longer eras to liberate minds of terrorists from horrid notions of Wahabi terrorism, thus saving their lives and those of their potential victims. There is a huge difference between a military tank and a book, a gun and a TV series or a documentary movie, a sword and a pen. The pen always wins eventually on the long run, even when this pen writes the religion of ISIS; let us remember that the cursed religion of ISIS (i.e., the Sunnite religion) has been written down and penned by Sunnite 'infallible' imams/deities in the Middle Ages such as Malik, Al-Shafei, Ibn Hanbal, and the list does not end in Ibn Taymiyya and M. Ibn Abdul-Wahab. Their Sunnite terrorist writings are still influential until today and believed to be 'Islam' by millions of people worldwide. Such Sunnite Wahabi ideas of terror can be refuted easily only by pens of Quranists. Indeed, writings of us and our fellow Quranists (thousands of books, fatwas, and articles on our website) have intellectually defeated, refuted, an debunked all Sunnite and Wahabi writings. Such Quranist writings are the best ammunition to be used in the peaceful, low-cost, intellectual war of ideas against Wahabi terrorism to save the whole globe for the next decades. Quranists need the only thing they lack: enough propaganda and means to spread and proselytize Quranism among the Muhammadans everywhere and to reach out to them in their countries.        

6- During the second presidential term of Obama, all venues and gates inside the USA had been shut before our face because of the powerful Saudi influence everywhere; some of Obama's consultants were conservative Wahabi Sunnites who hate the guts of all Quranists. Hence, Obama's foreign policies regarding the Middle East have failed miserably, and his presidential term witnessed the emergence and the widespread of ISIS terrorist organizations and its similar and related Wahabi terrorist organizations all over the globe, which resulted in making the USA lose billions of $ without achieving anything at all. Besides, ISIS terrorists have reached American soil and caused indiscriminate killings as they recruit agents via cyberspace and Sunnite Wahabi mosques inside the USA, mosques that are maintained and financed by the Wahabi KSA, the real axis of evil worldwide. It is noteworthy how Obama has been treated badly and contemptibly inside the KSA by its royal family members that despise him even after he served Saudi interests for a long time: in his last trip to Riyadh, they sent him a worthless person to meet him, and Obama was humiliated before the eyes of the whole world as the event was covered by the press, as the president of the most powerful nation on earth was humiliated and despised by the Saudi royal family members. Within American history, this has been unprecedented disgrace and utter humiliation.            

 

Lastly:

1- Indeed, the hateful presence of ISIS terrorists in the Middle East, in the West, and inside the USA has produce a positive effect – in spite of ISIS and the axis of evil the KSA – which is the fact that many 'Muslims' (whom we call the Muhammadans) have begun to check and re-check their inherited faith notions and tenets, and some of them converted to atheism and some others searched well enough, as they refused to reject the Quran or to forsake God, till they have found Quranism on our website. Truth seekers, as far as the real faith in God is concerned, must be rewarded by God for their striving for reaching guidance, as we know from the Quran: "As for those who strive for Us-We will guide them in Our ways. God is with the doers of good." (29:69). Indeed, we assert here that the number of Quranists is increasing with the passage of time, every day or rather with every terrorist operation or massacre committed by ISIS or other similar Wahabi terrorist organizations. The more people be disillusioned regarding the terror religion of the Sunnite Wahabism, the more they return to real Islam (i.e., Quranism) which has been abandoned for long centuries because of political manipulation from the era of Abou Bakr of Qorayish, the first caliph, till the era of the 'last caliph' of today: Abou Bakr Al-Baghdadi the ISIS head of terrorists, whom we hope to be the last of such hateful series of caliphs of obscurantism and religious terror.           

2- Although we hate the presence of ISIS terrorists, but surprisingly, a good result emerged on its margin: to show and expose the Sunnite Wahabism worldwide as a fake, bloody ideology that is easily debunked via the Quranic verses. What remains for us is that our beloved fellow Quranists all over the globe should do their best to make the world know about Quranism and our website in order to convince governments to enlist our help in the intellectual war of ideas against ISIS and its similar Wahabi Sunnite terrorist organizations (e.g., the MB, etc.), so that more human lives can be saved.   

  The best discourse: "...But it may be that you dislike something while it is good for you, and it may be that you like something while it is bad for you. God knows, and you do not know." (2:216). As always, God says nothing but the Truth.
