Salam,

I was going through Shaykh Abdal Qadir Jailani's input on khawarij and noticed the similarities with groups today:
http://www.sunnah.or...nya/Default.htm

Quote

Yet another name that has been given to them is "the Vendors" [Shurat], because of their assertion: "We have sold our own selves for the sake of Allah's cause [sharaina anfusana fi'llah]," or in other words: "We have traded them in exchange for Allah's spiritual reward and His good pleasure."

Interestingly we see salafis love similarily labelling and posturing and boasting themselves as being a "mujahideen" and so forth.

Quote

They have separated themselves off from the religious community [milla], breaking loose from it and from the loyal congregation [jama'a].

Quite obvious.

Quote

They have branded all who oppose them as unbelievers [kaffaru man khalafahum].

Another typical character that requires no explanation.

Quote

to begin the fast [sawm] before the sighting of the new moon [of the month of Ramadan], and to break the fast [fitr] in like manner [before the end of Ramadan has been established by the sighting of the new moon of Shawwal].

Similar to salafis today who abondoned the method of visual moon sighting.

Quote

They also maintained that there is no need for an Imam, since what is necessary is knowledge of the Book of Allah, and that alone is quite sufficient.

This is foundation of salafism typical of their "I follow Quran and Sunnah" lamadhabi/anti-traditional doctrine and protestant self learnt scholarship.


Quote

The Azariqa also consider it permissible to kill young children, meaning the offspring of those who attribute partners to Allah [awlad al-mushrikin].

Quote

They are in agreement with the Azariqa on the permissibility of taking women captives from among the unbelievers [kuffar], and of killing their infant children inadvertently, on the strength of [their interpretation of] the words of Allah (Exalted is He): [And Noah said: "My Lord,] do not leave upon the earth even one of the unbelievers." (71:26)

Those Muhakkimah used to go out with their swords to the market places. And when the innocent people gathered together without being aware of it, they suddenly cried out 'La hukm illa lillah!' and lifted up their swords against anybody they happened to overtake, and they went on killing people until they themselves were killed. ....The people used to live in constant fear of them; it caused a terrible commotion. But fortunately not even one of them remains now on earth.

Seeing the haqiqat of Islam being tarnished by the khawarij zealots, I was thinking that on the other hand it is actually strengthening of faith. There are numerous hadith on the khawarij, and this emergence of the khawarij in global space and attention in this manner is a showcasing of the fullfilmment of prophecy and truthfulness of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him and the religion of Islam, to the world.
