As-Salāmu `Alaykum (السلام عليكم):

Practing Muslims don't be confused or hoodwicked by the online bravado touting how supportive a poster is of Jihad and furthering the cause of Islam and Muslims worldwide when they sit online 24/7 promoting this online persona.

Not being engaged with the local Muslim community and being a contributor to enhancing the Muslim community in their locale tells you everything you need to know about the online Jihadist. (The word is a misnomer because those fighting in the cause of Islam are referred to as Mujahidin) ( مجاهدين, muǧāhidīn "strugglers" or "people doing jihad")

If a practicing Muslim isn't trying to enhance their understanding and using this forum as a medium to accomplish that end you should be aware of what you are dealing with.

We all are human and have made incorrect judgments when responding to posts in a manner we hope doesn't define us a practicing Muslim or humanbeing.

The Muslims who truely believe in furthering the cause of Islam and making Allah's word superior are proactive offline and in the Muslim community. When people have issues and problems with everyone they encounter it begins to not be everyone else imperfection but that persons unresolved issues.


Examples of online Jihadist:

If the Western Governments for one moment thought a threat was created they would use their resources to neutralize it.

How a person becomes an asset to governments is they have a need, financially primary, desire for citizenship in the west, etc. so don't be fooled by the online persona. We don't know personally the majority of the forum members or their intent.

You can see alot of depression in posts. The practicing Muslims need to help them verses encourage and incite the endless time wasting rants in posts that further this persona.

Be proactive and an asset to your local Muslim community by being a active member. No person can effectively change anything if they are not actively involved. You should find a Masjid and community you are comfortable with.

If you are not self-employed, student living with parents, a wife that doesn't work or have responsibilites being online twenty-four (24/7) is not productive in the threads that are rant based. Take a break from the internet and engage with your community offline.

This thread was created with the best intentions and the best contruction should be used when reading it.


Jazakumullahu Khair

As-Salāmu `Alaykum (السلام عليكم):

The practicing Muslims not educated or well read on the way assets (people groomed to
work with Governments, especially Western) is that they are developed and nurtured
within the community the Government wants infiltrated.

They are usually of two parts of the spectrum, either a distressed immigrant desiring citizenship to the perceived hated countries or a dedicated home breed citizen that can gain the trust of the foreign community. Be careful of the heart warming stories until you have completely checked a persons habits that are consistent or inconsistent with Islam. (Doesn't happen overnight)

The desire of a new Muslim to engage and learn the basic fundamentals of Islam would
be with his local offline Muslim community and Imam. Being in a forum 24/7 should
provide caution.

The practicing Muslims put their trust in Allah but are not ignorant.

Ash-Shu'ara (The Poets) 26:89

إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ (26:89)

Illa man ata Allaha biqalbin saleemin

26:89 (Y. Ali) "But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart;
