Go Back to Allah! You Are Full of Sh..t!

An old woman teaches IS militants an unforgettable lesson. In her Syrian dialect, the old woman told IS militants to go back to Allah and stop mass killing.

The video shows what is believed to be two IS militants sitting in a car’s front seat listening to the old woman talking about IS, the Syrian regime and Islam.

“Go back to Allah,” the old woman repeated few times.

The IS militant asked her whether to slaughter the “general deputy”; a person might be a loyalist to the Syrian regime.

She said: “don’t slaughter anyone.”

She counted several people, who might have been killed by IS militants and said: “killing all of them was haram [sanctioned in Islam].”

“I swear that you have never done anything for Allah,“ she added. “You don’t differ from Bashar [in reference to Bashar Al-Assad]. You are both full of sh..t.”

One of the militants responded with resentment: “We are busy, leave hajji! Go!”

Hajji refers to a Muslim, who went on pilgrimage to Mecca. It is also used as a courtesy title, especially for older people.

The old woman continues despite the militant’s explicit irritation: “There is no victory neither for you nor for him [in reference to Bashar Al-Assad].”

“You keep killing each other like donkeys, like livestocks, like cattle,” she proceeded.

One of the militants responded: “we will go back, hajji, we will go back.”

“Allah wouldn’t help you,” she said stressing that they are full of lies and their state is forsaken.

She continued reciting verses from Quran in a helpless attempt to persuade them:

“If two parties among the believers fall into a quarrel, make ye peace between them: but if one of them transgresses beyond bounds against the other, then fight ye (all) against the one that transgresses until it complies with the command of Allah; but if it complies, then make peace between them with justice, and be fair: for Allah loves those who are fair (and just).”

“The believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that ye may receive Mercy.”

“Fear Allah! You don’t need killing or slaughtering,” She warned. However, IS militant yelled, and probably he was attempting to be funny: “we came to you to slaughter.”

“And we had already destroyed generations before you when they wronged, and their messengers had come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe. Thus do we recompense the criminal people,” she recited from Quran.

“Then we made you successors in the land after them so that we may observe how you will do,” she added from Quran.

“He is observing you,” she commented.

“Indeed, those who deny our verses and are arrogant toward them – the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter Paradise until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do we recompense the criminals,” she further recited from Quran and shouted several times “Go back to Allah!”
