The Modern Jihadists: Khawarij or Mujahideen?
Isis. Daish. Al-Qaeda. The Caliphate. So many different Muslim groups in our times that have been labelled ‘terrorists’! Are these groups truly rightly guided, merely because they claim to stand up in the face of oppression? Or are they doing more harm by killing innocents, and thus demonstrate ‘Kharijite’ tendencies (the group that exemplifies Islamic fanaticism, as per the hadith)?
In this scintillating look at the past, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi examines the histories of these movements, tracing their development to the turbulent times of the early 70’s in Egypt. In fact, some of the people alive now that are involved in current movements were active in these past movements of three decades ago as well. What lessons can we glean from the precursors to these very movements? How can we avoid committing the same mistakes that those movements did?
This is a *must* lecture to listen to in light of today’s volatile circumstances. The lecture is followed by a very frank and controversial Q and A session. Recorded 14th April 2014
