The Wahhabis usually disregard, downplay and even mock any importance for the lineage of Prophet Muhammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and they make secular equalitarian arguments against traditionalist Muslims in regards to this. But recently all of a sudden some of the takfiri Wahhabis of ISIS (a savage Khawarij cult group that is slaughtering Muslims in Syria, and made of mostly foreigners like Saudis and other takfiris from foreign countries), have been quite flashy in displaying a long name for their leader “Amīr ul-Mu’minīn – Abū Bakr Al-Ḥusaynī Al-Qurashī Al-Baghdādī”(which is not even his real name in the first place and his real name is said to be Ibrahim Awwad al-Badri from Samarra). But, Praise be to Allah, our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) taught us enough to respond to such false claimants. The following is a narration from Abu Dawud:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:
When we were sitting with the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), he talked about periods of trial (fitnahs), mentioning many of them.
When he mentioned the one when people should stay in their houses, some asked him: Apostle of Allah, what is the trial (fitnah) of staying at home?
He replied: It will be flight and plunder. Then will come a test which is pleasant. Its murkiness is due to the fact that it is produced by a man from the people of my house, who will assert that he belongs to me, whereas he does not, for my friends are only the God-fearing. Then the people will unite under a man who will be like a hip-bone on a rib. Then there will be the little black trial which will leave none of this community without giving him a slap, and when people say that it is finished, it will be extended. During it a man will be a believer in the morning and an infidel in the evening, so that the people will be in two camps: the camp of faith which will contain no hypocrisy, and the camp of hypocrisy which will contain no faith. When that happens, expect the Antichrist (Dajjal) that day or the next.
Whether this prophecy refers to him is a speculation although probable. But the meaning contained in it would still apply to him and the likes of him.
One should also beware of the likelihood of a false messiah claimant appearing among them, who would in fact be the Dajjal (Anti-Christ). These Khawarij at present have their strength in a region between Iraq and Syria, and this is the place from which Dajjal would likely emerge. According to the narration from Sahih Muslim, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
…..I harbour fear in regard to you in so many other things besides the dajjal. If he comes forth while I am among you, I shall contend with him on your behalf, but if he comes forth while I am not amongst you, a man must contend on his own behalf and Allah would take care of every Muslim on my behalf (and safeguard him against his evil). He (dajjal) would be a young man with twisted, contracted hair, and a blind eye. I compare him to ‘Abd-ul-‘Uzza b. Qatan. He who amongst you would survive to see him should recite over him the opening verses of Sura Kahf (xviii.). He would appear on the way between Syria and Iraq and would spread mischief right and left….
And the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said about the Khawarij:
‘There shall appear a group of people from my Umma in the direction of the east. They will recite the Qur’an but it will not pass their throats. Every time a generation of them appears it will be cut down………- until the Anti-Christ appears from their last remnants.’ – [al-Musnad, al-Mustadrak, and others]
‘every time a generation of them appears it will be cut down-this will occur over twenty times – until the Anti-Christ appears in their last remnant.’ – [Sunan Ibn Majah]
