Warning To Our Youth!
As a matter of religious conviction and belief, Masjid As-Salaamah’s position towards extremist groups such as Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, ISIS (ISIL), and other groups with similar religious ideologies has been very clear: that they are outcasts, deviants and Takfiris who follow in part the beliefs of the Khawaarij (renegades), an ancient sect that was known for murdering the other Muslims after calling them apostates without any Islamic due process. Furthermore, we believe their violent acts, such as assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, suicide bombings, violence against governments and civilians are both illegal and contrary to correct Islamic beliefs and teachings. A Takfiri (from the Arabic word تكفيري) is a Muslim who practices Takfir, which is accusing another Muslim of apostasy or disbelief.
