3) MISCELLANEOUS TRAITS THAT ARE FOUND IN THE KHAWARIJ BUT THE TRAIT IN ITSELF DOES NOT NECESSARILY MAKE ONE A KHARJI 


4) ANSWERS TO SOME DOUBTS

Doubt # 1 : ARE THEY ENJOINING GOOD AND FORBIDDING EVIL FROM THEIR DESTRUCTION AT SUCH SENSITIVE TIMES IN ACCORDANCE TO THE ISLAMIC PRINCIPLES?!


5) CONCLUSION

6) EXTRA : A Summary of the Beliefs and Targets of ISIS BY Shaykh Faysal bin Qazzaar 





1) About this article and what does it contain 


Many books, pdf's, articles, videos have enlisted the widely known traits that the khawarij are or were known for. However in this i have tried to bring those traits which 


1. Can be very (i repeat very) easily be related with the current khawarij groups attacking Muslim countries from everywhere 


2. Are very unique to the khawarij , even if not as a stand alone trait but atleast when coupled with more than one it surely reflects their kharjism 


3. every trait i mention has come true in no less than at the very least (I repeat at the very least) 5 major incidents caused by the khawarij of our time which makes it so easy and feasible to match the description . You can find them in every news post or even consulting with those who are oppressed on ground , so when you read what the khawarij do today and compare it with what you know of their traits described in this post you will see an almost ditto resemblance  



4. I have not included many traits which have been enlisted in books dedicated to discussing them . Also neither have i delved into the numerous rulings pertaining to how they should be killed, what is to be left, what is not, when should we ally when should we not with others against them so on and so forth. Whoever wishes to read about it then i would recommend shaykh ad-daktoor `ali muhammad as-sallabi's [1] book titled Fikr al-khawarij wa al-shiah فكر الخوارج والشيعة فى ميزان اهل السنة والجماعة

[1] Dr. Ali Muhammad As-Sallaabi, is graduate from the Islamic University of Madeenah al Munawwarah and has a doctorate ( PhD) from Umm Durmaan Al-Islaamiyyah.


Initially the idea was of appending video clips, twitter screen shots, news articles under every trait to make it simple for the readers to compare and see how the trait and their actions match 200% . However i realized that not only would that be a bit risky but also more importantly ban many readers from sharing this article ahead due to security issues. So rest assured i will keep this article free from any such materials and links but at the same time enlist for you some distinguishing traits of the khawarij from which they are and should be known . 


Please note as i said above , it is not necessary that one or even two of the traits may not necessarily make someone a kharjee but if you read the following and couple it with what all is going on across the globe i am sure you will not doubt for even a second biidhnillah. 


Also let us assume for the sake of argument that maybe these extremists are not khawarij yet this in no way whatsoever diminishes the responsibility, obligation upon the and virtue of eliminating them as is upon the designated authorities of every Muslim country as is clear from the following :


Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment, 


[Ref: Qur'an 5:34] 

Also it is known that they have come later or after the already established Muslim rulership of every desginated nations and now they make their takfeer and sought to kill everyone who doesn't. 

It has been narrated (through a still different chain of transmitters) on the same authority (i. e. 'Arfaja) who said similarly-but adding:" Kill all of them." I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: When you are holding to one single man as your leader, you should kill who seeks to undermine your solidarity or disrupt your unity.  

[Ref: Saheeh Muslim, Kitab Al Imara, # 4567] 

It has been narrated on the authority of Aba Sa'id al-Khudri that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: “When oath of allegiance has been taken for two caliphs, kill the one for whom the oath was taken later.” 

[Ref: Saheeh Muslim, Kitab Al Imara, # 4568]

And many more narrations which endorse killing the one who causes dissension, crimes such as being responsible for the propagating, instigating and encouraging the killing of hundred thousand muslims as we have seen since the past 2-3 years . 

Please remember point not 3 above which was 

Quote 

every trait i mention has come true in no less than at the very least (I repeat at the very least) 5 major incidents caused by the khawarij of our time which makes it so easy and feasible to match the description . You can find them in every news post or even consulting with those who are oppressed on ground , so when you read what the khawarij do today and compare it with what you know of their traits described in this post you will see an almost ditto resemblance  

And also remember : 

Having one or two traits from the below does not necessarily make someone a kharjee. This is a misconception that it does. However in the light of whatever is happening since decades and now in front of our eyes, Many of these traits combined convince their resemblance and more with the khawarij. And even if for the sake of argument one refuses to accept this then as shown in the start of this document killing such high level mischief makers is wajib. 

So without further a due, let us begin




2) DISTINGUISHING TRAITS OF THE KHAWARIJ - ESPECIALLY THE MODERN DAY ONES



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 1 : SELF INTERPRETATIONS OF ISLAMIC TEXTS 


The most dangeerous, widespread and unique characteristics among the khawarij is that they will never follow the fahm of the salaf and scholars. Never. they will deny everyone from 10 Hijri to 800 Hijri if they have to if it opposes their own self interpretation. They will cling on to modern day taweelat or 19th century explanations because it adheres to their perspective and blatantly deny the fahm of salaf no matter how much you try. 


Ubaidullah ibn Abu Rafi reported: The Kharijites came out with Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, and they said:

لَا حُكْمَ إِلَّا لِلَّهِ

There is no rule but for Allah. (12:40)

Ali said:

كَلِمَةُ حَقٍّ أُرِيدَ بِهَا بَاطِلٌ

The statement is true but it is intentionally applied (or falsely interpreted to support) a wrong (cause). [1] 

[Ref: Sahih Muslim 1066;]


Imam al-Nawawi explains: Meaning, the basis of their statement was true. Allah says:The judgement is for none but Allah. [12:40] What they intended by it, however, was to reject ‘Ali’s [acceptance of] arbitration, may Allah be pleased with him.


[Ref: Sharh Sahih Muslim 7:152] 



[1] The refutation of `Ali radhiallahu `anhu against false ta`weelat has been prophecised by the prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam)


سَمِعْتُ أَبَا سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيَّ يَقُولُ: كُنَّا جُلُوسًا نَنْتَظِرُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَخَرَجَ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ بَعْضِ بُيُوتِ نِسَائِهِ، قَالَ: فَقُمْنَا مَعَهُ، فَانْقَطَعَتْ نَعْلُهُ، فَتَخَلَّفَ عَلَيْهَا عَلِيٌّ يَخْصِفُهَا، فَمَضَى رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَمَضَيْنَا مَعَهُ، ثُمَّ قَامَ يَنْتَظِرُهُ وَقُمْنَا مَعَهُ، فَقَالَ: " إِنَّ مِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُقَاتِلُ عَلَى تَأْوِيلِ هَذَا الْقُرْآنِ، كَمَا قَاتَلْتُ عَلَى تَنْزِيلِهِ "، فَاسْتَشْرَفْنَا وَفِينَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ فَقَالَ: " لَا، وَلَكِنَّهُ خَاصِفُ النَّعْلِ ". قَالَ: فَجِئْنَا نُبَشِّرُهُ، قَالَ: وَكَأَنَّهُ (1) قَدْ سَمِعَهُ (2)



Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (radhiallahu `anhu) narrated: Once we were sitting waiting for the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam), when he came from the house of some wife of his. So we set along with him. On the way his shoe broke and Ali stopped and began to mend it while the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) continued walking, and we followed him. Then at one place he stopped to wait for Ali and we stopped with him. He said: “There is amongst you he who will fight on the interpretation of this Qur’an just as I fought on its revelation.” So we began to peer around, and Abu Bakr and Umar were also amongst us at that time. But the Prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) said: “No, he is the one who is mending the shoe.” So we conveyed this good news to Ali and it seemed as if he had also heard what the Prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) had said. 

[Ref: Musnad Ahmad (11790); Saheeh by Shaykh Shu`ayb al-Arnaout; This report is also found in Sharh Mushkilul Athaar. Vol. 10, H. # # 4058. Pg. # 237; Tareekh ul-Islaam wa Wafiyat al-Mashaahir wal-A`lam. Vol. 2, Pg. # 366.; Sharh as-Sunnah. Vol. 10, H. # 2557. Pg. # 232-233; Musnad Abu Ya`la. Vol 2, H. # 1086 Pg. # 341 - 342 with the wording wherein Abu Bakr and `Umar ask the prophet "is it me ya rasool allah..?" 

The original Kharijites misused the verse “there is no rule but for Allah,” (12:40) by not properly distinguishing between matters upon which Allah has definitively ruled and matters left open to interpretation, consultation, and human decision-making. Ali effectively refuted them with the Quran.

Ibn Hajar reported: The Kharijites indicted Ali and they said:

انْسَلَخْتَ مِنْ قَمِيصٍ أَلْبَسَكَهُ اللَّهُ وَمِنِ اسْمٍ سَمَّاكَ اللَّهُ بِهِ ثُمَّ حَكَّمْتَ الرِّجَالَ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ وَلَا حُكْمَ إِلَّا لِلَّهِ

You have replaced the authority Allah has given you and the name with which He named you. Then, you judged with the judgment of men in the religion of Allah while ‘there is no rule but for Allah.’ (12:40)

When Ali heard this, he gathered the people and he called for the greatest scripture (mushaf) and he started striking it with his hand and saying:

أَيُّهَا الْمُصْحَفُ حَدِّثِ النَّاسَ

O you scripture, speak to the people!

They said, “It is not a person. It is but ink and paper. We are speaking about what is narrated from it.” Ali then refuted them giving an analogy, explaining to them saying :

كِتَابُ اللَّهِ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ هَؤُلَاءِ يَقُولُ اللَّهُ فِي امْرَأَةِ رَجُلٍ وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ شِقَاقَ بَيْنِهِمَا فَابْعَثُوا الْآيَةَ وَأُمَّةُ مُحَمَّدٍ أَعْظَمُ مِنِ امْرَأَةِ رَجُلٍ وَنَقَمُوا عَلَيَّ أَنْ كَاتَبْتُ مُعَاوِيَةَ وَقَدْ كَاتَبَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ سُهَيْلَ بْنَ عَمْرٍو وَلَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ

The Book of Allah is between me and these people. Allah said regarding the woman and man: If you fear dissension between the two, send an arbitrator from his people… (4:35), and the nation of Muhammad is greater than the affair of a woman and a man. They have taken vengeance upon me because I have written to Mu’awiyah and yet the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, had written to Suhail ibn Amr and: You certainly have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent example. (33:21)
[Ref: Fath ul-Bari from Sunan Al-Bayhaqi 16230] 



Ibn Hajar said :


 ‘It was said of them [that they are] “Reciters,” because of their tireless exertion in reciting the Qur’an and [devotion in] worship. Except that they would interpret the Qur’an upon other than its intended meanings, were obstinate, and went to extremes in regards to worldly detachment (zuhd), humility in prayer (khushu‘) and other [such] things


[Ref: Fath al-Bari, 15:371]

DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 2 : THE FIRST TO MAKE TAKFEER BACK THEN AND EVEN TODAY


They made takfeer of the son in law of the Prophet -`Ali (r.a) and all those who supported him in his arbitration with the barber and scribe of the Prophet - Mu`awiyah  (r.a) and likewise for all those who supported mu`awiyah (r.a) . So basically they made takfeer of hundred thousands of Muslims just like that and what we see today is not really different , in fact it is exactly the same with the groups who have made takfeer of even Mc donalds 


One of the Kharijites called out to 'Ali when he was praying the dawn prayer, saying: 


وَلَقَدْ أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ وَإِلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكَ لَئِنْ أَشْرَكْتَ لَيَحْبَطَنَّ عَمَلُكَ وَلَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ


(And indeed it has been revealed to you [O Muhammad], as it was to those [Allah's Messengers] before you: "If you join others in worship with Allah,[then] surely, [all] your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers) (Qur'an 39: 65).


'Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) responded as he was praying [with the verse]: 


فَاصْبِرْ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللهِ حَقٌّ وَلاَ يَسْتَخِفَّنَّكَ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُوقِنُونَ


So be patient [O Muhammad]. Verily, the Promise of Allah is true; and let not those who have no certainty of Faith discourage you from conveying Allah's Message [which you are obliged to convey] (Qur'an 30: 60).


[Ref: Tafsir ibn Kathir 6/329, Tafsir Tabari 20/121; Benefited from Faizan Shaikh al-Hindi]


Ibn Taymiyyah (whom they misquote and wrongly use to suit their desires today) said: ‘The Khawarij were the first to declare Muslims to be unbelievers due to committing sins. They declared as disbelievers whoever opposed them in their innovation, and made lawful the shedding of blood and the seizing of wealth.


[Ref: Majmu` al-Fatawa 3:279.]





DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 3 : THEIR ASSOCIATION WITH IRAQ AND SHAAM AND THEY BEING THE CAUSE FOR STIRRING DESTRUCTION THEREIN 



Imaam ibn Katheer (who was a Mujahid himself btw) said :


قال الحافظ ابن كثير الدمشقي ـ رحمه الله ـ في كتابه “البداية والنهاية”(١٠/ ٥٨٤-٥٨٥) عن ما سيفعله الخوارج بالأمة إذا قووا

إذْ لو قَووا هؤلاء لأفسدوا الأرض كلها عراقاً وشاماً، ولم يتركوا طفلاً ولا طفلة، ولا رجلاً ولا امرأة، لأن الناس عندهم قد فسدوا فساداً لا يصلحهم إلاّ القتل جملة

“If they (the Khawaarij) were to gain strength, they would cause mischief on earth – in `Iraaq, in Shaam (and everywhere). They would not leave a small boy or a small girl, nor a man or a woman (except that they would kill them). This is because they think that people have got so much corrupted that nothing can reform them except through mass killing.” 


[Ref: al-Bidaayah wal-Nihaayah (10/584-585)]


ولو أمكن الله الخوارج من رأيهم لفسدت الأرض ، وقُطعت السبل ، وقُطع الحج من بيت الله الحرام ، وإذن لعاد أمر الإسلام جاهلية ، حتى يعود الناس يسثغيثون برؤوس الجبال ، كما كانوا في الجاهلية ، وإذن لقام أكثر من عشرة أو عشرين رجلا ليس منهم رجل إلا وهو يدعو إلى نفسه بالخلافة ، ومع كل رجل منهم أكثر من عشرة آلاف ، يقاتل بعضهم بعضا ، ويشهد بعضهم على بعض بالكفر ، حتى يصبح الرجل المؤمن خائفا على نفسه ودينه ودمه وأهله وماله ، لا يدري أين يسلك ، أو مع من يكون

Ibn Asakir reported: Wahb ibn Munabbih said, “I knew the early period of Islam. By Allah, the Kharijites never had a group except that Allah caused it to split due to their evil condition. Never did one of them proclaim his opinion except that Allah caused his neck to be struck. Never did the Muslim nation unite upon a man from the Kharijites. If Allah had allowed the opinion of the Kharijites to take root, the earth would have been corrupted, the roadways would have been cut off, the Hajj pilgrimage to the sacred house of Allah would have been cut off, and the affair of Islam would have returned to ignorance until the people would seek refuge in the mountains as they had done in the time of ignorance. If there were to arise among them ten or twenty men, there would not be a man among them except that he would claim the Caliphate for himself. With each man among them would be ten thousand others, all of them fighting each other and charging each other with unbelief until even the believer would fear for himself, his religion, his life, his family, his wealth, and he would not know where to travel or with whom he should be.”

[Ref: Tareekh ibn `Asakir and has been authenticated by Shaykh Hatim al `Awni may allah preserve him.]

Ring a bell? 

Btw, normal beginners should not read sh hatim's uloom al-hadeeth based topics such as on the tabaqat of muddaliseen and other in depth works because he is way too advanced for beginners and many would mis understand his stances if they don't have the ability to thoroughly research or if they themselves aren't well read on these sciences before hand


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 4: They make Killing halal (and a piece of cake) yet strongly implement hudood against theft such that the people find their belongings safe and sound but not their lives [Talbees al-Iblees; chapter of the Khawarij ] 



Imam al-Baghawi (d. 516H) in his book “Sharh as-Sunnah” while commenting on the hadith about the Khawarij:

قَوْلُهُ: «لَا يُجَاوِزُ تَرَاقِيَهُمْ» أَيْ: لَا يُقْبَلُ وَلا يُرْفَعُ فِي الأَعْمَالِ الصَّالِحَةِ.
وَقَوْلُهُ: «يَمْرُقُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ» أَيْ: يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ، أَيْ مِنَ طَاعَةِ الأَئِمَّةِ، وَالدِّينُ: الطَّاعَةُ، وَهَذَا نَعْتُ الْخَوَارِجِ الَّذِينَ لَا يَدِينُونَ لِلأَئِمَّةِ، وَيَسْتَعْرِضُونَ النَّاسَ بِالسَّيْفِ،

Here he explains the trait mentioned in the hadith about the Khawarij  that they read the Qur’an but “do not go beyond their throats” that it means “Neither accepted nor raised are their good deeds“.

In other words, even if the Khawarij read the Qur’an, pray tahajjud, fast every week, fight their self declared “jihad”, or assume about themselves that “at least they have good intentions and calling to Tawhid and Shariah”, it does not matter in light of the religion that Allah has sent down and their deeds are deemed worthless.

And with regards to the description that the Khawarij “pass through the religion”, Imam al-Baghawi explains that “this attribute of the Khawarij is because they denounce the Imams (rulers and scholars of Islam) and view people with the sword”. [1] 

[Ref: Sharh us-sunnah of Imam Baghawi 10/226 shamela] 

[1] Meaning as the title suggests, they make killing a piece of cake and they seem to act, propagate the notion that people cannot be compromised or taught or rectified or discussed with except via the sword. 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 5: They make takfeer of every party and every sect of Muslims who do not submit to their islamic and political view. 


Shaykh Al `Abdaree (rahimahullah) said centuries ago : 


Look at those who branded him (al-Muhallab a brilliant war general who was known for his khawarij annihilation)  a liar; they were either a group of his own people, who did so out of envy and hatred, or were Khawarij who, if they had been able to brand him as something worse than that, such as being an unbeliever, would not have hesitated to do so. In fact, the Kawarij think of al-Muhallab and all Muslims as unbelievers. 


[Ref: Timthaal al-Amthal 1/256] 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 6: THEY DENOUNCE ALL MUSLIM STATES AS DARUL KUFR AND ONLY LEGALIZES THEIR LAND OF A KHALIFAH TO BE DARUL EMAAN AND THEY CONSIDER ATTACKING AND DESTROYING MUSLIM LIVES AND PROPERTY TO BE MORE VIOLABLE THAN THAT OF THE KUFFAR OR ACTUAL MUSHRIKEEN ENEMY


Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah says (quoting the unique characteristic traits of khawarij) : 

They (the khawarij) made the residence of Muslims a residence/place of kufr and war and they made the place they migrated to as a place of emaan and they considered all the Muslim countries being violable much more than what they considered the lands of Kuffar to be vulnerable or violable 


[Ref: Majmoo` al-Fatawa  3/28] 


Aren't they the same even today ?!! 


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 7: they legalize killing women children and weak for "petty" issues.



Ibnul-habeeb rahimahullah said : " if women, children are fighting with swords and likes against muslim then it is permitted to kill them UNDER SELF DEFENSE but if they are throwing stones and the LIKES from their forts or top of fortifies buildings THEN THEY SHOULD NOT BE KILLED


[Ref : Adh-dhakeera vol 3, page 399] 


You will be able to relate this trait if you have seen and known what they have done in shaam against women , enslaving them and killing them for such reasons. They say every combatant is to be killed. We say yes but a woman shouting and throwing water or some small stones at you or her utensils at you for invading her house and kill her family is a combatant for you ?!! All those war booty you stole from fellow Muslim groups couldn't get you enough training to ignore or withstand a few utensils?! 


روى الطبري في تاريخه: أن رجلا من السبيع كان به لمم، وكان بقرية يقال لها جوبر عند الخرارة وكان يدعى سماك بن يزيد، فأتت ‫#‏الخوارج‬ قريته فأخذوه وأخذوا ابنته، فقدموا ابنته فقتلوها، وزعم لي أبو الربيع السلولي أن اسم ابنته أم يزيد، وأنها كانت تقول لهم: يا أهل الإسلام، إن أبي مصاب فلا تقتلوه، وأما أنا فإنما أنا جارية، والله ما أتيت فاحشة قط، ولا آذيت جارة لي قط، ولا تطلعت ولا تشرفت قط فقدموها ليقتلوها، فأخذت تنادي: ما ذنبي ما ذنبي! ثم سقطت مغشيا عليها أو ميتة، ثم قطعوها، بأسيافهم


"There was a man in a village called Joubar, and his name was Samaak ibn Yazid. The ‪#‎Khawarij‬ came to his village, and took him and his daughter. They brought them forth to kill them, so the daughter said to them: “O People of Islam! My father is but an old hurt man, so do not kill him. As for me, I am just a young girl, and I swear to Allah, I never committed any immoral act, neither have I ever harmed any neighbor of mine, nor have I ... nor have I ..." But they brought her forward to kill her anyway, so she started crying out: “What is my sin? What is my sin?” Then she fell down fainting or dead, then they cut her body up with their swords". 

[Ref: At-Tabari in his Tareekh. Translated taken from Ustadh ibn `Abbas al-Misri on facebook]


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 8: They label everyone who opposes them as murji`a and consider every opponent on kufr 



Maymun ibn Mahran (may Allah have mercy on him), the Imam, the Hujjah, the Scholar of the Peninsula, and its Mufti, said: "Do you know who is the Harouri Al-Azraqi i.e. the Khariji? He said: "He is the one who if you opposed his view, he would label you a Kaffir and make your blood lawful"


[Ref: Fath al-Bari by Ibn Rajab (rahimahu Allah) 5/99. Benefited from Ibn `Abbas al-Misri on facebook]


Imam Ahmad rahimahullah said : 

Wa ammal khawariju fa innahu yusammuna Ahlis-sunnati wal-Jama`ah murji`atan wa kadhabatil khawarijo, bal humul murji`ah ; yaz`umuna Annahum `ala emaan wa haqqi doonan-naasi wa man khalafahum kafirun 

As for the khawarij then they call Ahl us-Sunnah as Murji` and the khawarij have lied in this accusation as they themselves are murji`ah. They claim that they alone among the people are on emaan and the haq whereas they claim that everyone who oppose them are disbelievers (and upon falsehood)” 

[Ref: Tabaqatul Hanabila 1/36] 

Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

The basis of the misguidance of these ones is their belief about the Imaams of guidance and the main body of Muslims that they have exited the (confines) of justice and that they are misguided. This is the approach of those who have abandoned the Sunnah, such as the raafidah and those similar to them. So what they view to be oppression, they consider it to be disbelief and then innovate rulings for it. These are the three positions of those who exit the Sunnah in every situation, such as the Harooriyyah, the raafidah and those similar to them. They abandon some of the fundamental principles of the Islamic Religion until they come out of it, just like an arrow goes through a hunted game’.

[Ref: Majmoo 28/496]





DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 9: They will not cease to appear until the last of them comes with Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal. [Ref: Sunan an-Nasa'i 4103] 


Their group will always emerge and to know about them the best way is to acquaint one self with their traits 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 10: They always come out during a time of Fitan. A time when the Muslims are already facing trials and calamities or when the Muslims are already engaged in battle against their enemies


The prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) told this trait about them when he told


يخرجون عند اختلاف من الناس

They will come out (or form their group) when the people (Muslims) are already amidst differences (such as a war or strive)

[Ref: Ibn abi `Asim in his Sunnah (923); Abu Ya`la (473); Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah and others with a hasan chain as said by Shaykh Mansoor ibn Nasir al-Mutairi and Shaykh al-Albani enlisted them in Dhilal al-Jannah 2/474 which you can download from here : http://www.alalbany.net/4312  or see Maktabah Shamels 2/449 under hadeeth 923 ]

And he sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam also said that


they would emerge during the differences amidst the people  and the one closest to the truth among the two parties will fight them

[Ref: Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah]

Other ahadeeth also point out to this trait of theirs.

These ahadeeth fit these groups today in its entirety. The complete hadeeth can be found in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah and Ibn Abi `Asim in his Sunnah and Ibn `Abdil Birr

( 52 ) حدثنا يحيى بن آدم قال : حدثنا يزيد بن عبد العزيز قال حدثنا إسحاق بن راشد عن الزهري عن أبي سلمة بن عبد الرحمن والضحاك بن قيس عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال : بينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقسم مغنما يوم خيبر ، فأتاه رجل من بني تميم يقال له ذو الخويصرة فقال : يا رسول الله ، اعدل ، فقال : هاك لقد خبت وخسرت إن لم أعدل ، فقال عمر : دعني يا رسول الله أقتله ؛ فقال : لا ، إن لهذا أصحابا يخرجون عند اختلاف من الناس ، يقرءون القرآن لا يجاوز حناجرهم ، يمرقون من الدين كما يمرق السهم من الرمية ، تحقرون صلاتكم مع صلاتهم وصيامكم مع صيامهم ، آيتهم [ ص: 742 ] رجل منهم كأن يده ثدي المرأة ، وكأنها بضعة تدردر ، قال : فقال أبو سعيد فسمعت أذني من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوم حنين وبصر عيني مع علي حين قتلهم ، ثم استخرجه فنظرت إليه .


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 11: THEY ATTACK IN MASAAJID AND PLACES OF WORSHIP OF NON MUSLIMS 



A number of the Kharijites met in Mecca and remembered the Battle of Nahrawan that was fought in 659 by the Caliphate under Ali and the Kharijites in Baghdad which resulted in Khariji defeat. One of the Kharijis said "If we just bought ourselves revenge for the honour of our deceased brothers". They agreed to assassinate three of the leaders of Islam: ibn Muljam was to kill Ali, Alhujjaj Al Tamimi was to kill Muawiya, and Amr ibn Bakr Al Tamimi was to kill 'Amr ibn al-'Aas. The assassination attempts were to occur simultaneously as the three leaders came to lead the morning prayer (Fajr) in their respective cities of Damascus, Fustat and Kufa. The method was to come out of the prayer ranks and strike the targets with a sword dipped in poison


On 19 Ramadan 40 AH, which would correspond to January 26, 661 CE, while praying in the Great Mosque of Kufa, Ali was attacked by the Kharijite Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam. He was wounded by ibn Muljam's poison-coated sword while prostrating in the Fajr prayer


Ibn Taymiyyah:


His (i.e. Ali's (a.s)) murderer is one of them (i.e. the Khawarij), and he was Abd Al-Rahman bin Muljim Al-Muradi, despite that he was one of the best of mankind in worship, and one of the people of knowledge.


[Ref: Minhaj Al-Sunnah Al-Nabawiyyah, Vol. 5, Pg. # 47]

You will be surprised to read about a narration wherein it was reported that the kharjee Ibn Muljim (la`natullah alayhi) who killed `Ali when his body parts were being cut he kept reciting takbeer, tahleel, tahmeed without any regret and when they went to cut his tongue he resisted saying i don't want to die except in the state of dhikr.!! 


الأخوة الكرام : روى الذهبى فى تاريخه 2/254 أنه "لما دفن على أحضروا ابن ملجم، فاجتمع الناس، وجاء بالنفط والبوارى، فقال محمد بن الحنفية- أحد أبناء على- والحسين، وعبد الله بن جعفر بن أبى طالب، دعونا نشتف منه، فقطع عبد الله يديه ورجليه، فلم يجزع ولم يتكلم، فكحل عينيه، فلم يجزع وجعل يقول: إنك لتكحل عينى عمك، وجعل يقرأ "اقرأ باسم ربك الذى خلق" حتى ختمها، وإن عينيه لتسيلان، ثم أمر به فعولج عن لسانه ليقطع، فجزع، فقيل له فى ذلك، فقال: ما ذاك بجزع، ولكنى أكره أن أبقى فى الدنيا فواقا لا أذكر الله"!!! فهل صح هذا !!!! وإن كان فما وجهه مع النهي الأكيد عن المثلة ؟ أيعتبر ذلك من رأيا في عقوبة المحارب ؟ غير أن الإمام علي رضي الله عنه لم ير في قتله حرابة ، بل روي عنه قوله للحسن بن علي رضي الله عنه " أحسنوا إساره فإن عشت فأنا ولي دمي ، وإن مت فضربة كضربتي " . أفيدونا بارك الله فيكم .


This however is a weak report. Nevertheless i am not surprised because there was a reason why the prophet `alayhis salaatu was-salaam said : " You will feel your prayer inferior to theirs and your recitation lesser than theirs"

DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 12: They consider Muslim women from opposite fighting party halal to be enslaved 



Once again someone who has been keeping touch or reading about what they have been doing would realize the moment he reads this trait and those who haven't then they probably won't be able to connect the clear dots 


Imam zuhree warning about this said : 



(2465) - (قال الزهرى: " هاجت الفتنة وأصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم متوافرون , وفيهم البدريون فأجمعوا أنه لا يقاد أحد , ولا يؤخذ مال على تأويل القرآن إلا ما وجد بعنيه " ذكره أحمد فى رواية الأثرم.


Al-Zuhree said: “The affliction rose yet there were many Companions of Allah’s Messenger . Some of them were those who had participated in battle of Badr. They all agreed that none should be retaliated against (who were involved in battle of Siffeen) and nor should property be taken by misinterpreting the Qur'an but who found his exact commodity (he was allowed to take it back).” 


[Ref: Al-Bayhaqee (8/174-175)]



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 13: THEIR PLOT AND PLAN ALWAYS HARMS THE GENERAL MUSLIM POPULATION



As has preceded above under trait no. 3, their actions always harm the general Muslim population, inflict more rules against them. Give the enemies more reason to torture and oppress innocent Muslims. The CTS bill of UK is a small example of this. 







“….‘Ali did not fight them until they had transgressed by shedding the blood of the innocent and transgressed against the property/wealth of the Muslims. Therefore, he fought them to repulse their aggression and their unlawful rebellion,… “



[Ref: Majmu` al-Fatawa 3: 282-288] 


Al-Haafidh Al-Mundhiree reported in his book At-Targheeb Wat-Tarheeb under the chapter Tarheeb Min Ad-Dawee Fil Ilmi Wal Qur`aan that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said that:



The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said to his companions:


‘Is there *ANY* good from these (khawarij) people?’ 




[Ref: Imaam Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) Declared this hadeeth Hasan Li-Ghayrihee-Saheeh At-Targheeb Wat-Tarheeb: Number: 135]




DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 14: THE KHAWARIJ AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT THEM ARE USUALLY HARSH , RUTHLESS AND QUICK TO JUDGE AND CRITICIZE 


Narrated Al-Azraq bin Qais:


We were in the city of Al-Ahwaz on the bank of a river which had dried up. Then Abu Barza Al- Aslami came riding a horse and he started praying and let his horse loose. The horse ran away, so Abu Barza interrupted his prayer and went after the horse till he caught it and brought it, and then he offered his prayer. There was a man amongst us who was (from the Khawarij) having a different opinion. He came saying. "Look at this old man! He left his prayer because of a horse." On that Abu Barza came to us and said, "Since the time I left Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), nobody has admonished me; My house is very far from this place, and if I had carried on praying and left my horse, I could not have reached my house till night." Then Abu Barza mentioned that he had been in the company of the Prophet, and that he had seen his leniency.




[Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 6127] 

This narration shows us also how the khawarij disregard people of excellence (such as this sahaabi) and their status and criticize anyone they want to not paying regard to if they are old men, scholars, rulers, women, teenage etc. You will notice even today they treat scholars who oppose them as trash and even the scholarls whom they referred to day and night, when he opposes them they kill him, mock him and as usual the regular chant of " scholars for dollars" and " govt sultan" begins. While for many , we could blame their immature youth teenage hormones for such irrational behavior but at the same time the kharji sifat they have traversed upon and adopted should not be ignored . 


And this is precisely why Imam Bukhari titled this chapter under :

Book of Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab) Chapter: "Make things easy for the people and do not make things difficult for them."


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 15: THEY DUE TO THEIR FALSE INTERPRETATIONS FIGHT UNTIL THERE IS FITNAH INSTEAD OF DOING THE OPPOSITE. 


Beautiful reply by Ibn Umar ra, to those who used verses of Jihad against Muslims


Al-Bukhari recorded that Nafi` said that two men came to Ibn `Umar during the conflict of Ibn Az-Zubayr and said to him, "The people have fallen into shortcomings and you are the son of `Umar and the Prophet's Companion. Hence, what prevents you from going out'' He said, "What prevents me is that Allah has for bidden shedding the blood of my (Muslim) brother.'' They said, "Did not Allah say:


(And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah))'' He said, "We did fight until there was no more Fitnah and the religion became for Allah Alone. You want to fight until there is Fitnah and the religion becomes for other than Allah!' 


[Ref: Ibn Kathir mentioned in his tafsir of surah al Baqarah verses 190-193]



Ibn al-Jawzi tells us: `Ali returned from Siffin and entered Kufah: the Khawarij did not follow. Instead, they settled in Harura. There were twelve thousand of them, and they were  (misusing the quranic verse and texts ) declaring: la hukma illa li’Llah – “There is no judgement, except Allah’s  (for the wrong reason to split from `ali) .This is how they initially started.



[Ref: deception of the devil (Talbis Iblis) page 89] 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 16: They instigate teenage girls , wives and family members to break away from their family and responsibility to join their so called empire 


« ثُمَّ خَرَجُوا يَتَسَلَّلُونَ وُحْدَانَا ; لِئَلَّا يَعْلَمَ أَحَدٌ بِهِمْ فَيَمْنَعُوهُمْ مِنَ الْخُرُوجِ فَخَرَجُوا مِنْ بَيْنِ الْآبَاءِ وَالْأُمَّهَاتِ وَالْأَعْمَامِ وَالْعَمَّاتِ وَفَارَقُوا سَائِرَ الْقِرَابَاتِ ، يَعْتَقِدُونَ بِجَهْلِهِمْ وَقِلَّةِ عِلْمِهِمْ وَعَقْلِهِمْ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ يُرْضِي رَبَّ الْأَرْضِ وَالسَّمَاوَاتِ ، وَلَمْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ مِنْ أَكْبَرِ الْكَبَائِرِ وَالذُّنُوبِ الْمُوبِقَاتِ ، وَالْعَظَائِمِ وَالْخَطِيئَاتِ ، وَأَنَّهُ مِمَّا يُزَيِّنُهُ لَهُمْ إِبْلِيسُ وَأَنْفُسُهُمُ الَّتِي هِيَ بِالسُّوءِ أَمَّارَاتٌ . وَقَدْ تَدَارَكَ جَمَاعَةٌ مِنْهُمْ بَعْضَ أَوْلَادِهِمْ وَقَرَابَاتِهِمْ وَإِخْوَانِهِمْ فَرَدُّوهُمْ وَوَبَّخُوهُمْ ، فَمِنْهُمْ مَنِ اسْتَمَرَّ عَلَى الِاسْتِقَامَةِ ، وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ فَرَّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَلَحِقَ بِالْخَوَارِجِ فَخَسِرَ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ .» 




Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) describing how the pro kharjee and kharjee youth behaved back then:

“Then off they went, slipping away alone to avoid detection so that no-one would be able to stop them leaving. They went from the midst of their fathers and mothers, and uncles and aunts, leaving behind kith and kin. This they believed in their ignorance, with little knowledge or understanding, to be pleasing to the Lord of Heaven and Earth, not realising that it was in fact of the gravest of enormity, most destructive of sins among monstrosities and wrongs, and that this had been made attractive to them by the devil and their own egos, hell-bent on wickedness.

Some people were able to salvage some of their offspring, relatives, and brethren, and return them back and rebuke them. Then, some of these remained upright while others fled afterwards and joined the Khawarij, and so became losers until the Day of Resurrection.”

[Ref: Al-Bidaya wa 'l-Nihaya, v. 10, p. 581]

Subhanallah, how familiar is this with what is happening today ! Praise be to Allah who has kept their sifat the same throughout the years to make it easy for us to recognize them. 


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 17: THEY FIGHT FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR SO CALLED CALIPHATE EVEN AT THE EXPENSE OF GOING AGAINST THE CYRSTAL CLEAR SUNNAH





Sa’eed ibn Jubair reported: We were met by Abdullah ibn Umar and we hoped that he would narrate to us a good saying. A man approached him and he said, “O Abu Abdur Rahman, tell us about fighting during times of persecution as Allah said: And fight until there is no more persecution.” (2:193) Ibn Umar said, “Do you know what persecution is? May your mother be bereaved of you! Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, only fought the idolaters as there was persecution for practicing their religion. It was not like you’re fighting for the sake of ruling.”

[Ref: Sahih Bukhari 6682]


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 18: THEY SEEK TO IMPLEMENT RELIGIOUS AFFAIRS WITHOUT IMPLEMENTING SECURITY 




Imam ghazali as-sufi rahimahullah said something that refutes the khawarij and their visionary self-concocted understanding 

The Shaykh (rahimahullah) said : 

"....Religious affairs cannot flourish unless security is achieved in these important and necessary matters. Otherwise, if one spends all his time being occupied with protecting himself against the swords of oppressors, and with winning his sustenance from exploiters, when would he find time for working and seeking knowledge, which are his means for achieving happiness in the hereafter?. Therefore well-ordered worldly affairs – I mean the fulfillment of needs – are a condition for well-ordered religious affairs.”

[Ref: Al-`Iqtisaad fil-`itiqaad ( the name itself refutes the khawarij ) ]

This is also what shaykh saleh al-Fawzan may allah preserve him said repeatedly. There is no peace without security.  Look what have the made of Muslims lands today. Millions of Muslims have lost their lives, houses, life time's savings, earnings, family, everything due to the desire of this group to gain 50 meter long caliphate 


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 19: They call their fellow men and followers in various non muslim lands to break their covenants even when they have been given security and safety as per the law they all agreed to abide by when they got the visa or when they decide to reside in those non muslim lands





If this is about stealing from a non-Muslim (who is at peace with us), then what about killing him:

Al-Sha`fi  ( rahimahullah) said concerning some people who entered the kaafir land and were in a position to take something of their wealth: If a Muslim man entered dar al-harb in safety (i.e. under the protection of the kaafir authorities), and he is able to take something of their wealth, it is NOT PERMISSIBLE for him to take anything of it, great or small, BECAUSE IF HE IS SAFE FROM THEM, THEN THEY SHOULD BE SAFE FROM HIM. And it is forbidden to take property in several cases: 

(1) if its owner is Muslim, 

(2) if the owner is living under the protection of the Islamic state,

(3) if the owner has been granted protection for a certain period… 

[Ref: Al-Umm, 4/284]

Al-Sarkhasi ( rahimahullah) said: It is not proper for a Muslim who has been offered protection to betray them, because betrayal is haraam.

If he betrays them and takes their wealth and takes it to dar al-islam (the Muslim lands), it is not right for a Muslim to buy it from him if he knows about that, because it has been obtained BY EVIL MEANS, and buying from him will tempt him to do the same thing again, and it is not right for the Muslim to do that. The basic principle regarding this is the hadeeth of al-Mugheerah ibn Shu’bah ( radhiallahu `anhu)… 

[Ref: Al-Mabsoot, 10/96]


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 20: THEY DO NOT CONSIDER OBEDIENCE TOWARDS THE KING/RULER 




وسمعت الحاكم أبا عبد الله الحافظ يقول: سمعت أبا بكر محمد بن أحمد بن باكويه الحلاب يقول: سمعت أبا بكر محمد بن إسحاق بن خزيمة يقول: سمعت أحمد بن سعيد الرباطي يقول: قال لي عبد الله بن طاهر: يا أحمد إنكم …..تبغضون هؤلاء القوم جهلا، وأنا أبغضهم عن معرفة. أولا: إنهم لا يرون للسلطان طاعة.

Aba Bakr Muhammad ibn Ishaaq ibn Khuzayma said " I heard Ahmad bin Sa`eed ar-Ribati  say “Abdullah bin Tahir said to me, ‘O Ahmad (ibn Sa`eed), certainly, you (people) have hatred of those group (meaning the Murji`ah) based on ignorance, and I have hatred of them based upon knowledge. Firstly (their sign is that), they do not believe that obedience is due to the ruler…”

[Ref: Imam Abu Uthman as-Sabooni (D. 449 A.H rahimahullah) brought this in  his `Aqeedatus salaf wa ashaabul Hadeeth page 15 in the word document which I have]


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 21: THEY WILL SPARE THE IDOL WORSHIPPERS AND NOT THINK TWICE EVEN BEFORE KILLING MUSLIMS 




يقتلون أهل الإسلام ويدعون أهل الأوثان

They will kill Muslims and spare/leave alone the Idol-worshippers.

[Ref: Saheeh al-Bukhaaree, Vol. 4, Book 55, Hadith 558; Sunan an-Nasa`ee, 2578] 


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 22: THEIR ACTIONS CAUSE SO MUCH FITNAH THAT THEY ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE WORST OF CREATIONS




 Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, considered the Khawarij rebels to be the worst of Allah’s creation

[Ref: Sahih al-Bukhaari 6531] 

Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani said:

This Hadith has a saheeh chain. It is also proven from the Saheeh Marfu hadith of Imam Muslim which he narrated from Abu Dhar (radhiallahu `anhu) in characteristics of Khawarij, the hadith states: They are a creation of worst kind, and Imam Ahmed has also narrated a similar hadith from Anas bin Malik (radhiallahu `anhu) with a strong chain. Imam Bazzar (rahimahullah) has narrated the hadith from Aisha (radhiallahu `anhu) who narrates from Prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) that he said: They will be the worst of my ummah and they will be killed by the best of my ummah, The chain of this hadith is Hassan

[Ref: Fath ul-Bari;  Volume No. 16, Page No. 168-9]


DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 23: THEY TEST MUSLIMS IN ACCORDANCE TO CHECK IF PEOPLE ALLY WITH THEM OR NOT AND IF NOT (EVEN POLITICALLY) THEY CONSIDER KILLING HIM HALAL 


The historians al-Tabari and Ibn Kathir chronicle alarmingly precise accounts of their intimidation, violence and terror. Under the events of 37H/657CE they detail how the Khawarij began terrorising the countryside around Nahrawan, Iraq, subjecting those whom they caught to an imtihan or “inquisition”. 

If the answers failed to satisfy their zeal for purity, or agree with their understanding of things, then the punishment was death. Things came to a head when they chose ‘Abd Allah, son of an early companion, Khabbab b al-Aratt, as their victim. 

A number of the Khawarij rode into his village for supplies and thought to make an example of him. They fired their loaded questions at him. They first asked him about the caliphates of Abu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthman. ‘Abd Allah extolled them all and praised their successive caliphates. So far, so good. They then asked him about ‘Ali, and his state before and after the arbitration or tahkim. ‘He has far greater knowledge about Allah than you do,’ replied ‘Abd Allah, ‘and has much more piety in terms of his religion and possesses greater insight.’ With that, his fate was sealed. 

They bound and dragged him and his pregnant wife to an orchard ladened with date palms, next to a river. As they were proceeding to kill him, a date fell to the ground, so one of the Khawarij picked it up and put it in his mouth. ‘Do you do that without the owner’s permission and without paying for it?’ said one of his Kharajite comrades. He spat it out instantly. Another Khariji, wielding his sword in threatening circles, accidentally killed a cow that had been wandering behind him. His comrades insisted he should go and find the owner and pay him the full price of the animal. They waited whilst he did so. Thus, having acted most righteously in the matter of the date and the cow, they slit ‘Abd Allah’s throat and then disemboweled his wife. Date spat out, cow paid for, husband, wife and unborn child butchered; and with the clearest of consciences, they purchased their supplies and went on their way

[Ref: al-Tabari, Tarikh al-Rusul wa’l-Muluk (Egypt: Dar al-Ma‘rifah, 1964); 5:81-2; Ibn Kathir, al-Bidayah wa’l-Nihayah (Dar al-Hijr, 1998), 10:584.; Also see the pdf titled “Selected Examples from the Characteristics of the Extremist Khawaarij” compiled and prepared by a student of knowledge, ‘Aadil bin ‘Alee Al-Furaydaan, and reviewed and examined by Shaikh Saalih bin Fawzaan Al-Fawzaan and Shaikh Muhammad bin ‘Abdir-Rahmaan Al-Khumayyis.  ] 





























DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 24: THEY WILL BE MOSTLY YOUNG IN AGE, WISE , LEARNED AND OLD SCHOLARS WONT ACCOMPANY THEM AND THOSE WHO DO WILL DO SO OUT OF FEAR DUE TO THEM CONTROLLING THEIR LANDS 


Imam Bukhari reports in his isnad from Ali ibn Abi Talib (r.a) that he said 

"I heard the Prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) say : There would arise at the end of the age a people who would be young in age and immature in thought (hudatha’ al-asnan wa sufaha’ al-ahlam) , but they would talk (in such a manner) as if their words are the best among the creatures.

Ibn Hajr commented: ‘The Khawarij, what led them to judge those who opposed them to be disbelievers, making their blood lawful … and engage in fighting and killing Muslims? All this is from the vestiges of those who worship upon ignorance; those whose hearts haven’t been expanded by the light of knowledge. nor do they hold tightly to the firm rope of knowledge.

[Ref: Fath al-Bari, 15:394.] 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 25: THEY DON’T HAVE ACTUAL REAL SCHOLARS AMONG THEM 


`Ali radhiallahu `anhu said about them:
" الذين ليسوا بقراء للقرآن ولا فقهاء في الدين ولا علماء في التأويل ولا لهذا الامر بأهل في سابقة الاسلام، والله لو وُلُّوا عليكم؛ لعملوا فيكم بأعمال كسرى وهرقل"

They are neither Qurraa (i.e. reciters of the Qur’aan who follow it as it should be followed) nor are they a people of astute understanding in the religion. Neither are they scholars in the (science) of explanation of the Qur’aan nor are they worthy of this affair (with regards to what has already) taken place in Islaam.  By Allaah! If they were to be placed in charge over your affairs, they would (perpetrate) the deeds of Khosrau (i.e. Chosroes) and Heracles amongst you. 

[Ref: تاريخ الطبري - 3/1117] 


This is precisely why Ibn ‘Abbas, in his debate with them, told them  ‘I come to you from (scholars such as ) the Emigrants (muhajirun) and the Helpers (ansar), and the son-in-law of Allah’s Messenger (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam). To them the Qur’an was revealed. They are more learned about its meanings than you are; and there is not a single one of them among you !! 

[Ref: Silsilah as-Saheehah' (5/12-13)] 



DISTINGUISHING TRAIT # 26:THEY ARE EXCESSIVE AND OVER ACTING IN EVERYTHING FROM KILLING TO ESTABLISH HUDOOD IN 50 METER WAR TORN DEAD BODY LYING STARVING SO CALLED CALIPHATE





‏قيل لأنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه : إن أناسا إذا قرئ عليهم القرآن 
يُصعقون فقال : ذاك فعل الخوارج.

It was said to Anas ibn Malik (radhiallahu `anhu) that indeed there are people, when Qur’an is recited to them, they faint, he said: “That (action of extremism) is the action of Khawarij .”

[Ref: talbees Iblis 189] 


See a list of 20+ general traits by shaykh mansoor ibn nasr al mutairi : 
http://www.almoslim.net/node/233758 


3) MISCELLANEOUS TRAITS THAT ARE FOUND IN THE KHAWARIJ BUT THE TRAIT IN ITSELF DOES NOT NECESSARILY MAKE ONE A KHARJI 


MT # 1 : Ungratefulness and demonizing of muslim ruler's good deeds and contribution


The groups - both khawarij and non khawarij - have crossed all bounds and limits in their ungratefulness against the Muslim states. Most of the times it is due to personal grudges and reasons such as 

- Not getting VIP treatment in the maternity ward during the pregnancy
- Not getting the citizenship of GCC states to avail more benefits 
- Not getting free trade license without restriction 
- Not getting a high pay 

- Or because they get some benefits in non muslim lands which they don't in Muslims so they forget all the other benefits the muslim lands gives them and their deen due to some monitery benefit they recieve in non muslim lands. 
so on and so forth. the people at the top level calling for democracy and change are mostly due to personal gains such as share holdings of their own companies in govt sectors . This is not the place to enlist such sensitive details, however the learned and experienced reader gets the idea i am trying to pitch across. 

the prophetic ahadeeth commanding to be grateful are many. The hadeeth even includes that the prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:

Whoever does not thank people (for their favors) has not thanked Allah (properly), Mighty and Glorious is He!' (Musnad Ahmad, Sunan At-Tirmidhî)


This is a big virtue, to adjoin thanking people with thanking Allah for their favours. And another hadeeth says do not belittle any little deed or that no good deed is insignificant even if it be smiling at your brother and the prophet included these small examples into charity! 

Such is the reward and status for even such tiny deeds in Islam !

Another hadeeth compares such small actions of good such as filling someone's bucket equal to forbidding evil and enjoining good if a man cannot do it via other means. 

The prophet's life and the examples from his companions are many to show how they favoured even the worst of Munafiqeen and Mushrikeen for their one-or-two favours over one-or-two Muslim 

The prophet sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam thus remembered the one time favour done by mut`im ibn `adi when everyone else rejected the prophet and refused him protection and entry in Makkah, Mut`im ibn `adi - the idol worshipping rejecting Muhammad's message- quraishi granted the prophet protection and eased him his affairs to a big extent walillahil hamd. But he died upon kufr.  After a few years when the Prophet captured what was the most precious treasure in those times i.e. war captives the prophet openly and loudly said 


Had al-Mut`im bin `Adee been alive and interceded with me for these mean people, I would have freed them for his sake.” 

[Ref: Bukhaari (1393, 6516)]

Another instance is the funeral prayer and giving his own shawl to the king of munafiqeen until qiyamah - `abdullah ibn ubay al-salul 

 It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, gave his garment to ‘Abdullah ibn Ubayy ibn Salul and shrouded him in it when he died. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, did so because he ‘Abdullaah ibn Ubayy had given Al-‘Abbaas ibn Abdul Muttalib, the paternal uncle of the Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessings be upon him, a garment to wear when he was taken prisoner on the day of Badr, so the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, gave him a garment in return while Ibn ‘Ubayy was such as such (the leader of the hypocrites as we all know this)…

Another incident 


قال ابن إسحاق‏:‏ و كان ممن قتل يوم أحد مخيريق، وكان أحد بني ثعلبة بن الغيطون، فلما كان يوم أحد قال‏:‏ يا معشر يهود، والله لقد علمتم أن نصر محمد عليكم لحق‏.‏ قالوا‏:‏ إن اليوم يوم السبت‏.‏ قال‏:‏ لا سبت لكم، فأخذ سيفه وعدته وقال‏:‏ إن أصبت فمالي لمحمد يصنع فيه ما شاء‏.‏ ثم غدا إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقاتل معه حتى قتل، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فيما بلغنا‏:‏ ‏(‏‏(‏مخيريق خير يهود‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏

Ibn Ishaaq said: One of those who was killed on the day of Uhud was Mukhayreeq, and he was a member of the Banu Tha’labah ibn al-Ghaytoon clan. So on the day of Uhud, he said, “O Jewish people! By Allah, you well know that aiding Muhammad is a duty upon you!” They said, “Verily today is the day of the Sabbath (a day of rest for the Jews)” He replied, “May there be no rest for you,” then he took his sword and his accoutrements and said, “If I am killed (during the battle), then my wealth goes to Muhammad, who may do with it what he wishes.” Then he went out to the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) and fought alongside him until he was killed. So the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) said about him, “Mukhayreeq is the best of the Jews.”

The prophet `alayhi salatu was-salaam did not merely praise him but turned his money and donation into the use and need of Muslims as waqf. ! what an honour and gratitude expressed and bestowed upon a Non Muslim for ONE FAVOUR OF HIS 

Another incident 

A woman was once stopped and asked to give water to the prophet sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam. the story is lengthy , however she helped them with her water carriage. The hadeeth continues to say :

فَكَانَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ يُغِيرُونَ عَلَى مَنْ حَوْلَهَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ، وَلاَ يُصِيبُونَ الصِّرْمَ الَّذِي هِيَ مِنْهُ، فَقَالَتْ يَوْمًا لِقَوْمِهَا مَا أُرَى أَنَّ هَؤُلاَءِ الْقَوْمَ يَدَعُونَكُمْ عَمْدًا، فَهَلْ لَكُمْ فِي الإِسْلاَمِ فَأَطَاعُوهَا فَدَخَلُوا فِي الإِسْلاَمِ‏.‏

Afterwards the Muslims used to attack the pagans around her abode but never touched her village. One day she said to her people, "I think that these people leave you purposely. Have you got any inclination to Islam?" They obeyed her and all of them embraced Islam. Abu `Abdullah said: The word Saba'a means "The one who has deserted his old religion and embraced a new religion." Abul 'Ailya  said, "The s`abis are a sect of people of the Scripture who recite the Book of Psalms."

[Ref: Saheeh al-Bukhari 344] 

There are many more instances showing how the prophet and his sahaaba and even till this date the honourable men and people with dignity do not forget a small favour done by even their enemies. but the khawarij especially of today are worse than the khawarij of yesterday because the previous one's at the very least admitted and acknowledged the merits of the muslim rulers however the khawarij of today twist and turn and make false excuses demonizing even billions and trillions of dollars spent by the Muslim states . 

THE UNGRATEFULNESS OF  KHAWARIJ TODAY IS FAR WORSE THAN THE ONES DURING THE EARLIER TIME  [1] 
---------

A sahaabi like Uthman had to literally count word for word major contributions he made and what he was known for in his merit against the neo khawarij who criticized `Uthman (r.a) - the khalifa of that time . See the footnote in the end:

`Uthman (radhiallahu `anhu) approached them and said: Bring me your two friends who stirred you against me. .... `Uthman approached them and said: 

I ask you by the name of Allah and Islam, do you know that

#reminder_no_1 :  the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came to Medina while there was no fresh water therein but Rumah Well? Thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Who would buy the Rumah Well and give water to Muslims for a better well in Paradise? Thereupon, I bought it from my money, but today you prevent me from drinking therefrom until I drink from sea water? 

They said: By Allah, this is true. 

He (Uthman) said: I ask you by the name of Allah and Islam, do you know that

#reminder_no_2:  the Masjid did not encompass the people who were offering Salah therein, thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "Who would buy the land of so and so to expand the Masjid for a better land in Paradise? Thereupon, I bought it from my money, but today you prevent me to offer two Rak`ahs therein? They said: By Allah, this is true.

He said: I ask you by the name of Allah and Islam, do you know that

#reminder_no_3: I equipped the army of hardship from my money? They said: By Allah, this is true. 

Then he said: I ask you by the name of Allah and Islam, do you know that 

#reminder_no_4 : the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was on Thabir (a mountain between Makkah and `Arafah) with Abu Bakr, `Umar, and me, so, the mountain moved until its rocks fell down. He said: He (the Messenger of Allah) kicked it with his leg and said: "O Thabir, calm down, for there is a Prophet, a truthful person, and a martyr on you." They said: By Allah, this is true. He said: Allahu Akbar, by the Lord of Ka`bah, they bear witness that I am a martyr (three times)


[1] The reason the neo khawarij of that time were better than the one's today is because they at the very least acknowledged openly the merit and goodness the ruler had and contributed to, whereas today they twist every good deed and contribution of the kingdoms and muslim states into a conspiracy theory demonizing or neutralizing their good deeds.






4) ANSWERS TO SOME DOUBTS 


Doubt # 1 : ARE THEY ENJOINING GOOD AND FORBIDDING EVIL FROM THEIR DESTRUCTION AT SUCH SENSITIVE TIMES IN ACCORDANCE TO THE ISLAMIC PRINCIPLES?!

Ans: 


There is an important rule concerning enjoining good and prohibiting evil. 

Shaikh ibn taymiyyah said:

فإن الأمر والنهي وإن كان متضمنا لتحصيل مصلحة ودفع مفسدة فينظر في المعارض له؛ فإن كان الذي يفوت من المصالح أو يحصل من المفاسد أكثر لم يكن مأمورا به، بل يكون محرما إذا كانت مفسدته أكثر من مصلحته

Indeed it is a must to seek the benefit and remove the evil by enjoining the good and forbidding the falsehood ; but on the contrary, if the benefit dies or if the evil (which we are trying to stop) increases because of it then doing so is not obligatory, rather doing so in such a scenario is prohibited if there is more evil than benefit

[Ref:  الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر ۱۲۔۱۳]

He rahimahullah also said

“From the Usool of Ahlus Sunnah is to stick to the Jama’ah, leave off fighting against the leader, meaning: the oppressive leader, and abandoning fighting during times of fitna and all of these are included with the general principle that if the benefits and harms, and the evil and good conflict, then the most correct option has to be selected. This is because enjoining and forbidding though they entail the attainment of some benefit, and the prevention of some harm, its opposite must also be considered. If, in carrying out this enjoining or forbidding, there is benefit lost greater than the benefit gained, or harm is brought about greater than the harm which was avoided, then this is not part of that which Allah has ordered us to do, rather it is harām, because of the fact that its net harm is greater than its net benefit. the only criterion for measuring the above- mentioned harm and benefit is with the scales of the Sharī’ah. Whenever one is capable of following a text directly, it is not permitted for him to turn elsewhere. If he cannot find a text for the exact problem confronting him, he can exert his reason to understand the ruling by way of analogy. the legal texts are seldom without someone capable of knowing their implications, and how they point the way to the rulings of the Sharī’ah” (Majmu al-Fataawa vol. 28 page 128., translated by salafiri)


An example of this is when the Prophet (sallalahu alayhi wasallam) forbade the killing of Abdullah Ibn Ubayy - even though he was a well known Munafiq (hypocrite) - as his killing could have resulted in a greater evil and harm to the Muslims.

Imam An-Nawawi (rahimaullah) mentioned in his commentary on the hadith of the  Prophet not killing Abdullah Ibn Ubayy, Imam An-Nawawi said,

“This hadith contains proof for the permissibility of leaving off some things that are preferable and also being patient with some things that are detestable, if it is feared that a greater evil may come about.” 

[Ref: Sharh An-Nawawi ‘alaa Sahih Muslim, Vol. 16, Pg. 139]


Hafidh Ibn al-Qayyim says in `Ilam  (3/12-13):

فإنكار المنكر أربع درجات؛ الأولى: أن يزول ويخلفه ضده، الثانية: أن يقل وإن لم يزل بجملته، الثالثة: أن يخلفه ما هو مثله، الرابعة: أن يخلفه ما هو شر منه

Opposing the evil has four level: The first is when (by opposing) it vanishes and the opposite of that evil remains. Second is when it weaken but do not vanish completely. Third is when by opposing it another evil of its kind replace it. Fourth is when it is replaced by a worse evil.

Then he says:

فالدرجتان الأوليان مشروعتان، والثالثة موضع اجتهاد، والرابعة محرمة

“The first two are prescribed and the third is the topic of dispute. As for the fourth, it is prohibited.”

He says:

وإذا رأيت الفساق قد اجتمعوا على لهو ولعب أو سماع مكاء وتصدية فإن نقلتهم عنه إلى طاعة الله فهو المراد، وإلا كان تركهم على ذلك خيرا من أن تفرغهم لما هو أعظم من ذلك

“when you see Fussaaq has gathered for their playing or vain talk then if you turn them towards the obedience of Allah then that is what intended. Otherwise leaving them alone is on their sin is better than to invite them for something which is worse than that.”

He then says:

وسمعت شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية قدس الله روحه ونور ضريحه يقول: مررت أنا وبعض أصحابي في زمن التتار بقوم منهم يشربون الخمر، فأنكر عليهم من كان معي، فأنكرت عليه، وقلت له: إنما حرم الله الخمر لأنها تصد عن ذكر الله وعن الصلاة، وهؤلاء يصدهم الخمر عن قتل النفوس وسبي الذرية وأخذ الأموال فدعهم

“And I heard Shaikh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah sanctify his soul and fill his grave with light, say: I along with one of my companions passed by a group of people during the days of Tatar who were drinking wine. He who was with me opposed them and so I opposed him. I said to him: Indeed Allah has prohibited wine because it prevents from remembrance of Allah and prayer. And for these people wine stops them from killing people, taking children as captives and taking money of people. So leave them.”

[Ref: `Ilam al-Muwaqqeen]  







5) CONCLUSION :




It is very hypocritical of these khawarij who claim to be following the sunan of the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) yet they do not follow what he did for 13 long years inside Makkah when the Muslims were weak. On the contrary for a few years now within 4-7 years itself they have wrecked havoc across the Muslim world. 

They claim to be following the sunan yet their victims are only Muslims. While the sunnah was that the prophet did not even kill someone like ibn ubay then what about having Muslims killed purposely? 


The prophet (sallalahu `alayhi wa sallam) and his companions stayed hungry for night and day working to build a trench so the Mushrikeen of Arab could not enter the city of Madinah and harm Muslims. the very same prophet also struck deals with the munafiqeen and yahood so as to ensure the Muslims inside were safe. He did all of this so the Muslims inside would remain safe and what these khawarij do is the total opposite. 


Abu Shuraih reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, 


إِنَّ مِنْ أَعْتَى النَّاسِ عَلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مَنْ قَتَلَ غَيْرَ قَاتِلِهِ



“Verily, the most tyrannical of people to Allah the Exalted is he who kills those who did not fight him, 



[Ref:  Musnad Ahmad 15943; Haythami graded it saheeh ]

Al-Ajuri (died 360H) said:


“Neither the scholars of old nor of new, ever differed about the Khawarij. They regarded them an evil people who were disobedient to Allaah and His Messenger even though they prayed, fasted and exerted themselves in worship, and all of this was of no benefit to them, even though they were apparent in enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, and that did not benefit them because they were a people who interpret the Qur’an upon their desires.”

[Ref: Kitab us-shar`iah  vol.1/325].



6) EXTRA : A Summary of the Beliefs and Targets of ISIS BY Shaykh Faysal bin Qazzaar 


Both al-Qaedah and ISIS are extremist groups that share the same ideology and targets. From them include the following:

-All Muslim rulers are Kuffaar. This stems directly from the teachings of al-Mawdoodee and Qutb.

-All forms of ruling by other than the Sharee'ah is Kufr, irrespective of whether the ruler has made Istihlaal or not (i.e. regardless of whether the ruler believes in replacing the Sharee’ah or not. Sunni scholars affirm that replacing the Sharee’ah constitutes Kufr, otherwise it may not, however ISIS don’t make this differentiation).

-There is no difference between Kufr that is agreed upon and Kufr that the scholars have differed upon. All acts of Kufr are interpretated as being Kufr, without any excuse of Ijtihaad or ignorance.

-There is no difference between Mu'aawanah (cooperating, even if it is for a legitimate Islaamic reason), Mudaahanah (making treaties for the benefit of Islaam and the Muslims) and Ta'aaluf (softness) with the Kuffaar - all of it is Kufr.

-There is no differences between Istihlaal or weakness of sins (refer to point 2).

-The Tawaagheet (pl. Taaghoot: something obeyed besides Allaah) of the living are worse than the Tawaagheet of the deceased. Meaning, the Kufr of the rulers is far worse than grave worship.

They have even coined a phrase in relation to this:

“The Shirk of the palaces (Qusoor) is worse than the Shirk of the graves (Quboor).”

-Making Jihaad against the rulers is Fard al-‘Ayn (an obligation) upon every single Muslim.

-Ijtihaad that dictates Jihaad not being present or Fatwaas issued restricting the conditions of Jihaad, is Ijtihaad that is void and unacceptable.

-Jihaad against the rulers takes precedence against the Kuffaar Uslee, because we need to defend the Muslim lands, establish a state, and remove apostasy as Riddah is worse than Kufr Uslee.

-Scholars, ministers, soldiers, police officers and all government workers are also Kuffaar by association of their governments. Sunni scholars have conditions for declaring others as leaving the fold of al-Islaam known as ad-Dawaabit at-Takfeer. From them is that the mistake must be clarified before placing a ruling on people.

All of the above falls under the innivated terminology of at-Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah

-The Muslim Ummah today is like the time of Aboo Bakr. Aboo Bakr was faced by tribes that became apostates and they view that their cult as being like the city of al-Madeenah; a place for the Muslims and anything besides this are cities and countries which have become apostates from al-Islaam and are destined to the fire.

Based on this, the whole world is Daar al-Kufr (possibly Daar al-Harb) including Makkah and al-Madeenah.

-The average Muslim falls under four: Kaafir (disbeliever), Murtad (apostate), Mastoor Haal or Majhool al-Haal.

Haal: meaning, they appear to be Muslim but their beliefs/allegiance are uncertain.

Majhool al-Haal: meaning, this person is not a Muslim in his appearance and it is not apparent by his action. It is permissible to kill such a person and take his wealth.

Note: All of these categorizations and innovated principles have only been introduced into the religion to justify killing innocent people and permit mass murder.

-There is no such thing as treaty or excuses, anybody that does not hear and obey the Caliph or uphold to the body of the Muslims, then they are eligible to be fought and killed.

Thus they believe legitimate leadership only belongs to them and if anyone disagrees must be killed as apostates.

-Lying, deceiving and treachery are allowed as its part of war. Therefore its allowed to hide ones beliefs in order to infiltrate and create splinter cells.

This clearly contradicts the conditions of Jihaad, of them, having an Imaam and fighting on the battle field alone.

-All rulers are either Kuffar, apostates or hypocrites, as well as all their citizens. They issued a verdict stating that merely holding a visa or a nationality makes one Kaafir by association. Some of their quotes even state one is a Kaafir even by raising a flag.

-The scholars are hypocrites and their Fatwaa is null and void.

-Major sins takes one out of al-Islaam. Interest, fornication, bribery and not giving allegiance to the Caliph are all acts of apostasy.

-Women, children and the elderly are all fair game and their intentions are not questioned.

-Non-Muslims are subject to war also, irrespective if they are a Dhimmee (a non-Muslim citizen in an Islaamic country), Musta’man (a person who has been granted security by a Muslim country), Mu’aahad (a person who has a treaty with a Muslim country), and killing them in greater number is more virtuous.

-Possessing citizenship shows one is pleased with Kufr. Thus his wealth, honour and blood are permissible and are deemed as apostates as they have chosen to mix and live with the Kuffaar.

-Possessing a visa is not an trust (Amaanah); if it is then we are allowed to take it with deception and not uphold it's conditions – with the purpose to kill and massacre.
