You wish to refute my argument about ISIS representing Islam. I have gone five rounds with my previous opponent. You believe my opponent was not worthy. I have already stated my points. I have used Quranic references and i can also cite Hadith. It is your turn to try to prove me wrong.
I am really sorry about this. i completely forgot that I had a debate until now.
In your previous debate, you didn't cite any references. Can you do it again?
I forgot to show my reasoning
P1. Islam is represented by who follows its teachings correctly
P2. ISIS doesn't follow Islam's teachings
Conclusion. ISIS doesn't represent Islam
Premise 1 is self evident. A person only represents his religion if his actions are based on his religion
Premise 2 is due to the lack of references that Islam promotes killing based on religion. My opponent has the burden of proof.
Actually I did cite 2 specific verses from the quran, 9:5 and 9:25. 9:5 is probably the most controversial verse in the quran and this is what Isis uses to justify their actions. Some say that 9:5 only applies to the muslims of the time, but then how do you distinguish what applies to he time of muhammad and what is law? After all the quran is a book of everlasting and permanent law. You say a person only represent his religion if his actions are based on his religion. Well in 9:5 the Quran says "kill the mushriks wherever you find them...but if they repent and establish salah and pay zakat leave their way." Mushriks is a term that can translate to either polytheist or idolaters, which means people who don't believe in islam. So I think Isis' actions are based on the religion that they practice.
There are a few hadith that allow the execution of apostates. Verse 9:25 also sanctions the jizya on non muslims. And what would be the penalty if the jizya is not paid? Death
