Holy War: ‘Combative Jihad and Radical Jihadists’! There is a difference between the two, do you know what it is? Do radical Islamic Jihadists have it right when they kill innocent people, rape, behead, burn alive, take hostages, and ignore what the Koran says of Combative Jihad? This story gives answers to what constitutes Koranic Combative Jihad. We use an Islamic source for this, and the answer lies in the end; ‘in the heart of men and women’ who want to kill for the sake of killing!
Holy War: ‘Combative Jihad and Radical Jihadists’
ISIS ‘paid to attack Iran adds to War within Islam’ which is just one more enemy for ISIS. Daesh has set itself up as the one religious Caliphate against the entire world. As it is in reality, we see ‘*Al-Qaeda’s target is the so called ‘far enemy’; which is the West. Including Europe and North America [mainly America]; there is another enemy. I should say that Israel is an enemy to both groups here, both Sunni and Shia. But ISIS has an enemy closer than the West, this is called the ‘*near enemy’.

The target of ISIS’s so-called caliphate is “the near enemy” (e.g. Iraq, Syria, Jordan Lebanon, North Africa, Central Asia, Egypt and Israel). The millenarian ISIS, unlike Al-Qaeda, is living the apocalypse, observing 1,500 years of Islamic doctrines. Source *Europe.newsweek
However as America and Russia, among others buddy up to Iran; there are problems. While the Sunni and Shia battle one another, the religious truth here is that both groups eye a one world government ruled by an Islamic power. The difference is the one they believe who will take control. Today Iran is in Iraq and Libya to battle extremists, this includes ISIS. While Iran itself is extremist, it considers these others who with ISIS fight for control in the middle east. Saudi Arabia as well with its coalition battle in the middle east, Yemen, and Libya. Then the West, Europe, Russia, and others form the rest of the fighting sides in the middle east. Pretty much the whole world is caught up in this mess.
But if the Sunni Caliphate of ISIS manages to coerce or convince all Sunni nations to join them, then fixes an alliance with Shia Islam; the two forces together would be inconceivable to beat. The difference here for the Shia is they are looking for the Mahdi to rule and not looking to establish a Caliphate and run it according to Sunni Islam. Both sides hate Israel, both sides would initiate Sharia law. Both sides hate America and the west. The West is the number one target to take over either by force, by proxy, by sheer numbers of Islamic refugees who enter and settle down the west forming a ‘social jihad’ through citizenship.
This world war will not stop anytime soon. It is headed for an ultimate war and battle here. While the blood shed is in the volumes, neither
side wants to quit. There seems to be one more target, one more bomb to set off, and more people to kill. The recent horrific bombing in Baghdad, Iraq pushed the point that while the Iraqi army is pushing ISIS out of Mosul, Fallujah, and other areas; Iraq is not safe, even in their main city.
The death toll from a suicide bombing in a Baghdad shopping district rose above 175 on Monday, fueling calls for security forces to crack down on Islamic State sleeper cells blamed for one of the worst-ever single bombings in Iraq.
Moreover, The attack in Medina did not kill a huge number of people. The main thrust was to push the point that even the Islamic holy site of Medina was at risk. It was a wake-up call to all Islam.
At least four security officers were killed and five injured in a suicide bombing Monday outside an Islamic holy site in Medina, according to the Saudi Interior Ministry. The Monday evening attack took place just as thousands of worshippers were about to hold sunset prayers in the mosque where the Prophet Muhammad is buried in Medina.
Further, according to Islamic Supreme Council of America; yes the USA has this too! The concept of the term ‘**Jihād, which in Arabic would be al-ħarb al-muqaddasah’ does not mean ‘**holy war’. There is no term in ‘**entire Qur’ān’ that expresses this. The meaning according to the ISCA is ‘**combative Jihad’. Source **ISCA on concept of holy war.
This puts a ringer in the jihadist groups that continually say they are fighting Jihad. They may be fighting Jihad, but it is not a ‘holy war’ but simply ‘combative Jihad’, which in laymen’s terms pushes the point that this is plain ‘out and out War’, and no difference than Hitler’s war. But while you may not see this in the Koran, the teachings push the concept of four kinds of Jihad. These four kinds are interpreted differently, but the main concept of Jihad is ‘struggle in the way of Allah’. What we have seen is a war footing to push this Way of Allah upon the whole of the planet.
Here ISCA describes that there were two different kinds of Jihād: that of Makkah and that of Madīnah. The one in Makkah was primarily by education. In Madīnah Jihād was by two methods:
1) education and
2) fighting after the enemies attacked the Prophet within his own city-state. Additionally, the Muslims who had been expelled invoked the right to return to their homeland, and if opposed to use force.
Now while Islamic scholars and the various divisions of Islam debate what Jihad is; the fact remains all over the world we have Islamic fighters that believe with all their heart that “fighting jihad” is the right thing to do. ISIS pushes this to a horror perspective in beheadings, hangings, burning alive, cutting children in half, beheading little girls and boys, raping, and taking sexual hostages. There is no civility, no honor, nor any God that would allow such barbarity done to people and families.
The bottom line, however for the non-muslim world and the muslim world to understand that according to the Koran and to ISCA understanding of this is that there are Four Conditions for ‘combative Jihad’.
The Caliph following the position of the Koranic law is that only at such a time when it can be reasonably proven that:
• there are aggressive designs against Islam; and,
• there are concerted efforts to eject Muslims from their legally acquired property; and,
• that military campaigns are being launched to eradicate them.
At such a time the ruler can declare and execute the provisions of combative Jihād.
Today the world is embroiled in an Islamic war and it is not stopping anytime soon. The biggest migration of refugees on this planet has been ongoing. Europe is overflowing with displaced peoples. Other nations like America are bringing these people in as well. While there are Islamic scholars to decry suicide bombings and the kind of Jihad going on, the truth is; Jihad and Jihadists are filling the planet. The ISCA, which pushes the point that suicide bombings among other tools used by radical Jihadists are not Islamic.
One of Islam’s fundamental principles is the sanctity of life. Islam prohibits killing those who are not combatants, except those involved in a direct battle face-to-face between warriors. There is simply no room for maneuver in Islam to justify the killing of innocents, even as a form of mass retribution, which many radicals today use as justification for their large-scale attacks on civilians.
Now as I quote the Islamic Supreme council of America, the question we ask; “is this true?” In addition, “Can we trust any Islamic scholar to tell Americans the truth”? I have personally discussed issues with Sunni Muslims over these many years. Two in fact I had a good talk on Christianity and Islam. These occurred in Iowa and another one in Las Vegas as I was being driven to another city. I cannot guarantee anything with Islam, even Muslims cannot do this; agree among themselves. However it was ISCA who gave a warning to America on Islamic extremism and the result was other American Muslim groups denouncing this group. The Islamic Supreme Council of America represents ‘sufi’ islam and was started in California in 1991. It was Chairman Hisham Kabbani who attended a U.S. State Department Open Forum entitled “the Evolution of Extremism”. During his speech, Kabbani gave a description of Islamic Extremism in America. After he was finished his speech and his organization were lambasted and criticized by other Islamic groups in America for what he said. However, as a non-Muslim and a Christian; I see there is a threat to America over Islamic Extremism. If Shaykh Kabbani is correct, then at the time of his warning 80% of the 2,000 mosques in the US were being run by extremist ideologies. What is it like over 20 years later in America? I believe that there are many mosques in such this extremist mode, as I have heard these various groups speak out from time to time. Believe me these are waiting for an Islamic Christian war in America to begin. I also say, not all Muslims want this.
Shaykh Kabbani had charged that funds collected by Muslim groups for humanitarian aid were being used “to buy weapons to fight in the name of Islam”; that “extremism has been spread to 80 percent of the Muslims in the U.S.”; and that “there are more than 2,000 mosques in the U.S…and 80 percent of them are being run by extremist ideologies.”
Shaykh Kabbani also charged that “extremist ideology is getting into the universities through clubs being put around the universities.” He alleged that “Iran is hiring nuclear scientists” to miniaturize nuclear warheads. “If these small warheads reach the universities, you don’t know what these students will do,” Shaykh Kabbani said.
In this war on Terror, there are many terror’s to avoid. In this world of war, there are many uprooted from their homes as a result of war. In this end of days Prophecy which Christians forsee in Revelation; we see the time of the Beast which will rule the world, and have another Beast; the false prophet, who will push the mark of the beast. At this time the Beast will make war with the Saints. So as we move to the end of the end of days, as the Apostle Paul says in 2 Tim 3:1 “in the last days perilous times shall come!”
(6) But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
(7) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
(8) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
(9) Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
(10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
