I was scratching my head yesterday regarding the number of phone calls I received after my last post, asking if our Muslim leaders are vocally condemning the lunatics calling themselves the "Islamic State" or IS/ISIL. Armed with less than thirty minutes of free time and a Google search engine, I put together this list highlighting just a few of the many scholars, public speakers and activists condemning the group.
Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi Condemning ISIS
Video of Shaykh Yasir Qadhi Condemning ISIS
Dr. Tariq Ramadan Condemning ISIS
Video of Shaykh Hamza Yusuf Condemning ISIS
Imam Suhaib Webb Condemning ISIS
Imam Mohamed Magid Condemning ISIS
Dr. Ingrid Mattson Condemning ISIS
Imam Omar Suleiman Condemning ISIS
NPR On Shaykh Bin Bayyah Condemning ISIS
NPR On British Muslims Condemning ISIS
VICE On Muslims Condemning ISIS
Mohamed Ghilan Condemning ISIS
Dr. Shadee ElMasry Condemning ISIS
So there you have it - Muslim scholars, leaders and activists are condemning ISIS. All out there for everyone to see, including the open letter condemning ISIS by a large group of scholars as well. Now imagine I searched the web for a whole hour instead of thirty minutes.
