Present Day Terrorists are the Kharijites of the Time of the Prophet (PBUH)
Ramzan Mohammed; Assoc. Prof. Dr Bakare Kazeem Kayode

Terrorism is one of the major world issues which has affected the whole of mankind in general, but it has more specifically troubled Muslims all over the world. Terrorism has been bracketed with Islam across global media due to terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda claiming to be Muslims and chant slogans claiming to follow the Qur‟an. This paper looks into the Prophetic Narrations in regards to the Kharijites of the time of the Prophet (PBUH) and compares them to present day terrorists. The outcome indicates that present day terrorists are the Kharijites of the time of the Prophet (PBUH), which the Prophet (PBUH) prophesized, and as stated by the Prophet (PBUH), they have nothing to do with Islam and their atrocities will take them to Hellfire.
