Muslim cleric boasts of the rise of newer jihadist group once Al Qaeda and ISIS disappear

Robert Spencer

Said Mullah Krekar: “The Quran and the Sunnah are the sources of guidance, education, social and ideological upbringing, and Jihadi activity. These two sources exist. The Quranic verses exist and the hadiths are permanent. In Sahih Al-Bukhari, there are 55 hadiths about Jihad, and in Sahih Muslim there are sixty-nine. These sources will not cease to exist. Generations to come will continue to be raised on them.”

In this he is assuming that al-Qaeda and ISIS are carrying out the commands for jihad that are in the Qur’an and Sunnah. Will some “moderate” Muslim go into those sources and explain to Mullah Krekar how he is misunderstanding Islam? Don’t hold your breath.

“Norway-Based Jihadi Scholar Mullah Fateh Krekar: New Groups Will Emerge After Al-Qaeda and ISIS Are Gone Because the Quran and Sunnah Are Permanent,” MEMRI, December 20, 2018:

Norway-based Jihadi scholar Mullah Fateh Krekar, who is the former leader of the Kurdish Sunni Jihadi group Ansar Al-Islam, was interviewed on NRT TV (Iraqi Kurdistan)….The interview aired on December 20, 2018.

Following are excerpts:

Mullah Fateh Krekar: If Al-Qaeda or ISIS were present in a certain place and then lost their foothold, it should not be seen as something out of the ordinary. Even if these organizations disappear, another organization will emerge. The religious sources have stayed the same. The Quran and the Sunnah are the sources of guidance, education, social and ideological upbringing, and Jihadi activity. These two sources exist. The Quranic verses exist and the hadiths are permanent. In Sahih Al-Bukhari, there are 55 hadiths about Jihad, and in Sahih Muslim there are sixty-nine. These sources will not cease to exist. Generations to come will continue to be raised on them. The same goes for the injustice suffered by the people. The Sunnis in the Sunni Triangle [in Iraq] were oppressed, and faced hostile extermination campaigns by the Crusaders.

Their rights were trampled, their existence was erased, and all aspects of their life came under attack- their beliefs, their affiliations, their tribes, their religious denominations, their economy, the infrastructure in their towns… All these factors still exist, so even if ISIS is gone, another group with the same ideas will come along.
