Calamities & tragedies are part of life and it is through these trials and calamities that the true strength of a believer is shown when he turns to his Lord in humility and submissiveness leaving his affairs in the Hands of Allah and putting complete trust that Allah (subḥānahu wa ta’āla) will take care of him.
Yet lately it seems that one calamity has not left the Muslim Ummah and another one strikes even harder and in this chaos many are those whose Iman is shaken and they ask the question “Why do bad things happen? Why can’t life just be good!!”

Mufti Ismail ibn Musa Menk discusses why ISIS is not Islamic and not part of the mainstream Muslim community.
The rise of ISIS took almost all political analysts by surprise. For many, it quite literally appeared as if this group came out of nowhere. While the vast majority of Muslims are appalled at the brutality and viciousness of some of their tactics, the question does arise as to how such a fringe group could draw together thousands of people to support them. In this bold and frank talk, which was addressed primarily to a non-Muslim audience, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi mentions some of the root causes that explains why this group is popular in some Muslim circles. The complete break down of the Iraqi civil infrastructure and economic stability, after decades of American sanctions and two illegal invasions, cannot be ignored as we try to understand the appeal of such militant groups.
