The Black Flag Army – How IS Fits in Islam’s Foretold Great War
The Black Flag Army – How IS Fits in Islam’s Foretold Great War

If IS – the Islamic State – has monopolized most of the world’s attention as the group has quite literally turn the Middle East into an ever flowing river of blood where horrors and persecutions have become the norm, a deep connection to Islamic mysticism has often gone amiss when trying to make sense of the chaos which has gripped the Arab world.

While the international community and world leaders have looked down on the IS as a political-religious aberration, a terror group gone global on the wave of anti-western sentiment which animates the MENA region – Middle East and North Africa – Muslims, Shia and Sunni compounded have understood IS as the materialization of a millennium old prophecy – the coming of Imam Madhi and the end of days.

If Muslims are well known for their disagreements and divergent interpretations of the Quran there is one thing upon which they all agree, regardless of their origins or even sects, it is that before this world comes to an end a great evil will be unleash upon the Muslim Ummah (community) and that a leader from the Prophet Mohammed’s house (PBUH) (a descendant of his) will rise against tyranny and oppression to lead the people out of darkness – Imam Mahdi, and restore order.

This idea that a saviour will arise at a time when darkness has invaded all is actually a recurrent theme in both Christianity and Judaism. Whether in the Old or New Testament and in this case the Quran, prophets have always told of a man from God and of God who will claim leadership over all and show humanity a way to salvation.

When it comes to Islam, a great deal of prophetic details have accompanied such news, to such an extent that even non-Muslims will find difficult to ignore the writings on the wall … so do speak.

If no one disagrees with the inherent nefarious nature of the Islamic State, it is crucial to understand this movement within the perimeters of Islamic tradition and mysticism if one is truly to grasp the nature of this war which is raging in the Middle East. While there are many layers to this conflict – political, geo-strategic, ideological – for Muslims it is mostly about the coming to pass of a warning.
