abu bakr al-baghdadi




compiled by

Muhammad Haniff Hassan (Fellow) and Mustazah Bahari (Associate Research Fellow), S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University

(c)August, 2014


This list compiles voice of Muslims from all over the world against IS.

It is hoped, this list would contribute to;

  • the study of IS by those who are researching on it.
  • those who are looking for information of Muslims’ rejection and condemnation of IS.

Next in our pipeline is to offer analysis of the content of these voices.

The list is divided into voice/stand of:

  • Muslim religious scholars (ulama)
  • Muslim intellectuals, leaders and organisations
  • Muslim countries via state leaders or policy

The list is not exhaustive and never will. However, we will try to update this list from time to time, to our best capability.

The date of latest update of this list is 22 September 2014.

For comparison, herewith is the list of Muslims who support IS or choose to stay neutral.
