Top Ten Quran Verses for Understanding ISIS

Jihadists fighting for ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) claim that they are following the commands of Allah and Muhammad. Yet Westernized Muslims, politicians, and the media insist that ISIS is violating the principles of Islam. Who's right? In the following video, I present the top ten Qur'an verses you need to know to understand ISIS.

Here are the ten verses I cite in the video:

Qur’an 3:32—Say: Obey Allah and the Apostle; but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.

Qur’an 48:29—Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurat (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad SAW till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).

Qur’an 4:24—Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess. Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property—desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

Qur’an 5:33—The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.

Qur’an 9:5—Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day [notice it says “fight those who do not believe,” not “fight people who are attacking you”], nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book [the people of the book are Jews and Christians], until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Qur’an 9:73—O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.

Qur’an 9:111—Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

Qur’an 47:35—Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for Allah is with you, and will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds.

Qur’an 2:106—Whatever communications We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring one better than it or like it. Do you not know that Allah has power over all things?

So really, all Muslims are following the Koran. From those who only follow the more peaceful verses, to those involved in the Islamic State who follow the severe verses.

But the followers of the more peaceful verses (i.e. western Muslims) simply act as the thin edge of the wedge (weather they realize it or not) until Islam gets stronger, and then they will be forced to follow the more severe commands or be killed for hypocrisy. From the Koran’s point of view then, the unsuspecting Muslims who only follow the peaceful verses are really just useful idiots who lay the foundation for those who follow the severe verses.

This was the same basic system of a gradual increase of violence (as their power and influence increased) that Hitler, Stalin, Mau, Pol Pot etc. used.

In Lebanon, even those who burn the flag of the ISIS were met with criticism because the flag being used by the ISIS bears the name Allah.. meaning they are all the same Muslims believing in the same creed and doctrines.

Once again another great video directed at the heart of the problem. The Quran.

Here is another video done by CNN. "Meet the family of a suicide bomber." What is interesting is the brother of the homicide bomber says at the end.

"We feel NO SHAME whatsoever of what Rashid did. His intentions where bonafide and they where true to the heart".

A good brief coverage of the Koran as it relates to ISIS. What many do not know is the effect of the last one quoted, detailing the concept of abrogation from Allah.

In essence, it declares that older instructions are cancelled and replaced by later ones. Since all of the peaceful verses came in the beginning, when Mohammad was at Mecca, and the later ones dealing with war, jihad, and death to infidels came later at Medina, the peaceful verses are considered obsolete.

This is essential to know, when you hear a person claiming Islam as the religion of peace, quoting the earlier verses. It is one more lie from the enemy, Satan behind the mask of Allah, seeking to deceive both followers and infidels regarding the true nature of Islam.

Islam is blatant evil, and jihad is war against anyone who rejects Islam.

David you are right summarizing Muslims Allah’s Commandments in Quran by Ten Commandment in your video, referring 10 verses from Muslim’s Holy book Quran. Muslim Allah’s Ten Commandments of killing mankind is total opposite to loving nature of True God we find in our daily life who provides us rain, sunshine etc. equally for sustaining our life freely whether we believe Him or not. This proves Allah of Quran is not True God and its verses are Satanic. God is Merciful, Kind and Righteous. If we do not believe Him, He would judge us at the end of this world and no one has power to judge another human for not obeying true God. God does not need help of ISIS to maintain His supremacy. ISIS must be doomed today or tomorrow like Osama bin Laden of Al Qaeda. Like Laden, ISIS is committing blasphemous and must be destroyed.
Contrary to Quran Jesus gave two commandments to bring human beings into His nest: 1) Love your God with your heart, souls mind and strength and 2) Love your neighbor as yourself.

The best ever video that summarize the quran. Thanks David.
I am glad that you post this video. It will be easily direct people to listen to 8 minutes has every thing.
Islam now is peaceful in the US. It is getting stronger in the UK. One day, Muslims will take over the UK. Many trials happened in the past in the form of strike. This will be shocking to everyone. When this happen, the US will try to help and send troops to the UK to restore the situation. Then Muslims here will make strike as well, so that one of two things to happen: 1) Either the US stay away from what is happening in the UK. Or 2) the US accepts Islam as the main religion in the country. This may take one or two may be five years. No one knows. But I can see this happening in the horizon very soon. Then Islam will not be peaceful in the US anymore, and these satanic verses will be applied in our culture. You can expect what will happen afterwards.

I am seeing this trend happening at work. The SAD AND THE HORRIBLE thing is that mangers are naïve. They are giving critical & decision-making positions to Muslims. This last Saturday, I successfully convinced, one of the supervisors about what is happening.

I am glad I cam across David’s blog after I discovered that website is down. This blog is straight to the point. It contains videos for those who do not like to read.

Now I am not satisfied with just leaving comments here and there. I believe that all of the readers of this blog has the same concerns and the same goals. I am hoping that all of us can be united through one-way or the other. I am not sure how. I am PRAYING FOR IT.

David, you are on the front line. I came across your blog only two weeks ago. THANK GOD FOR THIS. GOD IS MY WITNESS, I am praying for you. Also, I am asking my dear friends to pray for your safety.

I AM PRAYING FOR TV STATION OR TV SHOW that is 24/7 exposing Islam and saves the nation from this cancer. I see you David as a host for this. This requires special setting (I am writing these setting; it is taking me sometime. I am sure that you understand it is not an easy thing). If this is the Lord’s will, He will open your heart for what I am saying. I am asking everyone come across my post to pray for this. Also, please pray for David’s safety and his family.
May our Lord Jesus Christ keep our nation safe
Grace and Peace be with you all

From and English perspective.

Enough of this disgusting rubbish that we are being fed on every day. Every time something happens like this, we are told it does not represent the true . . . . . . . blah gurgle thrutch dart and spit, . . peaceful followers of . . . . . . . the yellow brick road to islam

Really? where are all these peaceful followers then? I don't think I ever remember a time when even a small bunch of them got together and even attempted to stand outside their local mosque with a sign held up saying :

"We, The True and peaceful followers of islam have had enough of this Hypocrisy.
It is not fair to the people of this land we live in, that, they have to put up with their children being raped and their people having their heads chopped off in the streets and back gardens, "BY US" just because THE IMAM thinks it is written in a book somewhere, that says this is the way things are supposed to be."

There is so much fear in that so called band of masochistic self haters and deniers of all reason and logic, that not even those inside of its trap, and who can see that they are TRAPPED and would, if only they could, would grab their nearest belongings, stuff them into a bag and run as far away from it as their legs would carry them. As far from the wild pack of NUTCASES behind them, screaming at the top of their voices. "god is great, come back, stop or we shoot, he loves you, really he does. Stop ! or we will chop your heads off as well as theirs".

BUT They can't can they? Why can't they? Because, Apostasy means death !
AND now it is totally clear in the news in the world that, "Refusal to Convert" also means death.

When we confront them with these statements and demand an answer, what do we get from them? You don't understand our religion. You don't understand our customs. You are misinformed. You are not reading the correct translation. You have to read it in Arabic to really understand it. You have to read it in context. You have to understand the purity of our god.
You have to do this.
You have to do that. You have to stand on your head on the Scottish border at midnight on the third full moon of the second quarter of the 2nd decade of . . . . . whistling Dixie, . . . . . . and on and on and on. Every time something disgusting as this happens. You have to start from the total beginning once again. And yet again. Nothing changes. No words of reason are enough.

The endless circle of the grinding down of all resistance until you have no resistance left inside of you and you start paying the jizya and feel your self subdued.

The past 2000 years of religious knowledge of the Christian faith, all the pains we have suffered to understand our own God. All painstaking work it has taken to build our society up built upon Roman Law and Christianity, Protestantism through the Reformation and the breaking of the power of Rome over this land we call England. How much work and fighting went into writing the Bible in our own language, so that every man could read it for himself and even debate its meaning, as we do today. Whether he be a Christian or not. Protestantism did not require that a man must die because he refused to become a protestant. But Rome Required this sacrifice from a Heretic that refused to believe in the Roman way of things. How many burned at the stake for heresy?

How long did it take for the church to understand that you cannot compel a man nor woman to believe in God upon pain of death? And that today in our Christian Religion it is repugnant to us, to know that there lives amongst us a faction that insists that belief upon pain of death is the right and holy way?

No, Something must change or something must break. And it will not be the Law of this land, nor the Faith of this country, nor the heart of that which holds us all together as one Nation that will not be denied its Freedom to decide its own fate.
Let no one put asunder.

Islamic ISIS, is as Malice, as is, ISIS ISlamic.

Therefore, Islam is Malaise.

The law of "syntactic" etymology versus the law of Islam.

Dacritic said...

There are Muslims, and I believe a majority of them in fact, who are CLUELESS about their own religion. Absolutely don't know what is going on. They know only probably the five pillars of Islam, and won't even know the Syahada isn't mentioned in the Quran. As the adage goes, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So, we can't sort of discriminate against them given this "clueless" fact, but then they on their part, since there is so much scrutiny on their religion these days, must study it more openly and examine it!

Radical Moderate said...

The Irony of Ironies. Stephen Sotloff thought that Arabic and Islamic people are not terrorists. Guess he found out the hard way that he was wrong.

"Anderson Steve loved the Arab and Islamic people and he wanted to bring their suffering to the world stage... and the people in Arab and Islamic world were not terrorists they are people like you and me who wanted to live...Stephens name was on a list, Stephens name was sold at the border that he has been responsible for the bombing of a hospital. This was false, activist spread his name around... These sold called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support. One of them sold him for between 25,000 and 50,000 thousand dollars."

David -
for those of us who can't access the video (work situation) would you list out the citations ... I would love to share them with some confused friends of mine.

Unknown said...

Hi David! Can you please post a list of the verses in this video. If not I will just watch again. I just want to make sure I accurately find if they are from the hadith or sura's.

Thank you!

Qur'an has 123 verses on violence. This religion must be exposed otherwise it will take over the world and return us back into dark ages and slavery system.

Tom Stevenson said...

U guys keep on talking about the violent quotes but what u guys don’t know is that 95% of the Muslims only follow the peaceful ones and before some of the quotes you have said they say that try for peace. only when peace is not an option do u go to war. And please do not degrade Islam it is not the right thing. Also do not promote Christianity

Anonymous said...

Tom will you please keep quiet enjoy your chilled beer.

Unknown said...

continue promoting peace and expose evil

Unknown said...

I am concerned by what is happening now in reality, that a Muslim organization named ISIS is killing everyone who do not follow their Islamic Religion and Muslims in general do not show global support to defend their religion. my observation is they are sympathetic towards ISIS. The fact remains today that Islamic organizations are engaged in mass destruction of Violence against humanity globally. This fact cannot be ignored and is witnessed worldwide.

Unknown said...

the disbelievers does not mean christian or jews or any other religion.. but actually god says that you should believe in other religions like you believe in is that men should not marry or have intercourse with woman that are married, and about the slaves... it doesnt mean you could rape them or so. but it means you could get married to what is actually being said you should not have sex with women that are NOT your wife.... u understood it wrong...some people even translate the quran wrong, because a vowel in the quran could change the whole meaning. and you should understand it by reading the whole passage. about killing people god says that during the war id had prisoners, they should do one of the things, if they could read they could teach reading. They could be muslims, or pay money, and if he cant do any of the above he should be left free.not killed. ISIS actually does the opposite. because god didnt actually tell us to kill people.. AND YOU ARE not even allowed to kill(harm) any of those: A child, A women, a tree, a prisoner, your enemy when he is not facing you(running away/having his back), an injured person, an elderly...

Unknown said...

lets keep it simple. Muslim organizations = muslim people all from their understanding of islam are involved in killings and inhumane acts, islam being the root cause of war and suffering. look all around the world and you will see this fact. Muslims are in a state of denial.

reality said...

wikileaks disclosed that Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama financed ISIS for byuing Arms. America's most trusted friend in middle east Saudi Arabia is behind ISIS with all its strength. Even Isreali head of state paid a visit in hospital to extend their moral support to wounded ISIS soldiers. Given these hard reality who r really supporting this militant group ? Is it moderate Muslims , who r infact most of the victims or the christian & jew world leaders? Ask ursef

Unknown said...

Gulay Sari, God/Jesus does not judge souls to burn in hell. Those souls judge themselves unworthy of being in God's presence. Love God and live eternally with him. Deny God and commit to the only other eternity which is hell. There is nothing in between and nowhere else to go.
