Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Many brothers from our community are recently speaking positively about ISIS being the correct khilafa. Without getting into many unnecessary debates or arguments, I have been unable to debunk these brother’s theories or supporting arguments. They seem to be convincing many others that this is indeed the jihad of Imam Mahdi and are preparing to embark on the journey to join. Much of their argument is based on the fact that Isis is not murdering anyone. That they are living just as the sahabah lived, and they are awaiting Imam Mahdi’s arrival. Please guide regarding ISIS and the signs of the correct khilafa.


A: Unfortunately we do not have detailed information about this.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
