It is hard to understand why our young men, who have a lot to do in life, join the so called Islamic Jihadist group. They kill and mention the name of Allah

young guys ar enthusiastic and ar willing to do a lot to show their potential. even Allah s.w. loves young guys that are striving towards His will. so this so called sheiks use that opportunity to lure the uneducated young guys into devilish act. telling them it is jihad. using distorted ayahs to back their claims

So who then also lured the sheiks in the first place for them to also lure the uneducated young guys?
All these jihadist and the rest are all the creations of westerners.

The cause is Wahabism to put it bluntly.About 99% of all jihadist groups are followers of the Wahabi ideology

I think they join the Jihadist groups base on the hadith narrated by Ibn Abbass which says Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ ) said, “There is no Hijra (i.e. migration) (from Mecca to Medina) after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately.

@ Abdul Karim, you mean to say the prophet allow Muslims to fight a jihady fight? And what is this Jihad for Christ sake?

Sani ahlulbayt replied 8 months ago

The jihad the prophet talked about is not the same as the jihad groups like ISIS, Al-qaeda and Al-Shabab Carry out today.Killing and bombing innocent people is not what the holy prophet described jihad to be

Most of them join for money. For instance, in the yr 2014 mothers in Tunisia demonstrated against the luring of their children with money to join rebels in Syria. Before the rise of ISIS, Saudi Arabia promised to pay rebels to over throw the government of Iraq.
