British Imams Declare ISIS is Failing


New Edition of Haqiqah Magazine Launches

TODAY, in the new edition of digital magazine Haqiqah (which means The Reality), UK Imams show that in not supporting Muslims ISIS is failing its mission.

Developed to reclaim the digital space from ISIS (known in the region as Daesh) and to directly chellenge their lies, the latest issue, available at, reveals how the terrorist group, which has no religious legitimacy, is also failing socially and economically.

Shaukat Warraich, Editor-in-Chief Chief of Haqiqah, said: “Daesh is failing on multiple fronts, it is becoming increasingly desperate. The mass exodus of refugees has exposed their false claim of having established a ‘Caliphate’ for Muslims in the region.”

Incensed by the images, which have travelled around the world, of civilians of all ages dying as they flee unspeakable horrors, British Imams are taking the lead to reach out to Muslims across the world to join them in raising their voices, to say we know Daesh is failing, we know that their claims are hollow and we reject them absolutely.  

Shaukat Warraich, added: “A global message needs to go out from every corner of the world rejecting Daesh. If you agree then spread the messages; share Haqiqah magazine; pass it on to your young people and join us in our declaration of Daesh’s failure.”

Shaykha Safia Shahid, contributing author of Haqiqah, said: “Through Haqiqah,  British Imams and scholars, will make clear that Islam does not permit the killing of thousands of people, sexual abuse, and the destruction of  mosques, churches and other religious monuments.

“Today, Imams from across Britain have come together to send a clear message. Daesh has no claim and legitimacy to the beautiful and compassionate teachings of Islam; we can see its web of lies unravelling.”

Dr Qari Asim MBE (@QariAsim ), Senior Imam at Makkah Mosque in Leeds and Senior Editor of Haqiqah, declared: “The reality is that Daesh continues to put out a huge amount of propaganda and lies, despite its promises being exposed as falsehoods, which is why a continued effort to reclaim the digital space from terrorists is so important.

“In its desperation at its own failings, it has told Syrians that they are committing a ‘major sin’ in Islam if they seek protection in the West. According to Daesh, this makes thousands refugees apostates. This is a wicked and inhumane lie.”
