I am really annoyed by the people who lie and deceive to protect Islam. These people never come out to protest against the atrocities of ISIS but keep on blowing the Trumpet that they have nothing to do with Islam. Recently I came across an article written by Mrs. Rose Hamid.
Mrs Rose Hamid is the same lady who wanted projection and went to the rally of Donald Trump to profess her form of Islam. I would say she is being used as a tool by the people who want to spread the nonsense of Islam at any cost.
Mrs. Rose Hamid referred to an open letter by certain Muslims Clerics who in very uncertain way demanded from Abu Bakar Al Baghdai to desist from his actions by addressing him as Doctor because he is holder of doctorate degree in Islamic Studies.  In the wisdom of Mrs Rose Hamid certain actions of ISIS does not manifest Islamic Teachings according to that letter, you can read her article here.
Lets analyse whether Islamic scriptures order Muslims to do certain acts which in the wisdom of Mrs. Rose Hamid along with those clerics do not represent Islam. Remember there are huge number of Clerics of Islam including Abu Bakar Baghdadi and Usama Bin laden who treat the commands of Allah literally which are very clear in plain reading the Islamic texts. Also remember that these moderate Muslims when start to read their own books then they understand, what in-fact Allah is demanding from them. Then they are considered to be radicalized because they take steps to implement the orders of Allah. You will always see radicalized and semi radicalized Muslim in fury and anger because that’s what allah has demanded from them. Boko haram , Tehreek Taliban Pakistan, ISIS, Hams, Lashkar e Tayyaba, Alqaida along with all those millions of people who took to roads and Marched to the Capital City of Pakistan for the Implementation of Sharia are radicalized or semi radicalized by relying on the very texts which order them to do so.
I am forced to write this article in response to the baseless claims of Mrs. Rose Hamid along with those scholars referred to in the article of Mrs Rose Hamid, with a demand that if all of what ISIS is doing not part of Islam then why don’t you declare the verses and ahadith of violence Null and Void. If you cannot do that then you can give a unanimous Fatwa by forbidding people to act on them. An open Letter is not a fatwa and not at all binding on any Muslim. Because its merely a suggestion. My article would be lengthy one and may be in Parts because the answer to baseless assertions Is the answer with proper references from the very books of Islam. Below mentioned actions have been claimed to be forbidden in Islam…
Killing the innocent.
▪ Killing emissaries, ambassadors or diplomats; hence it is forbidden to kill journalists and aid workers.
▪ Harming or mistreating – in any way – Christians, Jews or any “People of the Scripture.” (Yazidis are People of the Scripture.)
▪ Re-introducing slavery. It was abolished by universal consensus.
▪ Forcing people to convert.
▪ Denying women their rights.
▪ Torturing people.

Killing the Innocent
Under this head of “ Killing the Innocent”. I will try to cover and counter three points as mentioned by Mrs Rose Hamid. Rest of the points later.
1)      Killing the Innocent
2)      Harming or mistreating – in any way – Christians, Jews or any “People of the Scripture.” (Yazidis are People of the Scripture.)
3)      Forcing people to convert.
As per Islamic teachings all those people who are not Muslims does not fall under the category of Innocents so it has been ordered to fight them and convert them to Islam
Allah Says "Fight those who do not believe".
Quran 9.29:
Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
Muhammad said “I have been commanded to Fight”
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:
"The Messenger of Allah  said: 'I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify to La ilaha ill-allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) and that I am the Messenger of Allah, and establish regular prayers and pay Zakat.'"(Sunan Ibn Maja Vol.1, Book 1, Hadith 71 Arabic Reference : Book 1, Hadith 75)

Abu Hurairah narrated that :
The Messenger of Allah  said: "I have been commanded to fight the people until they say La ilaha illallah (there is none worthy of worship but Allah). Whoever says La ilaha illallah, his wealth and his life are safe from me except for a right that is due, and his reckoning will be with Allah."
( Sunan Nisai 3972, Book Reference : Book 37, Hadith 7, English Reference: Vol.5, Book 37, Hadith 3977)

Kill woman and Children of Polytheist(Christians) along with them
It is reported on the authority of Sa'b b. Jaththama that the Prophet of Allah , when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said:
They are from them.
( Sahih Muslim 1745 a, Book Reference: Book 32, Hadith 30, English Reference: Book 19, Hadith 4321)

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbas said:
“Sa’b bin Jaththamah said: ‘The Prophet was asked about the polytheists who are attacked at night, and their women and children are killed.’ He said: ‘They are from among them.’”( Sunan ibn maja, Vol.4, book 24, Hadith 2839, Arabic Reference : Book 24, Hadith 2946)

Kill Who Apostatize
Ibn 'Abbas said:
"The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'Whoever changes his religion, kill him.'" ( Sunan an Nisai 4059, Book Reference : Book 37, Hadith 94, English Translation : Vol.5, Book 37, Hadith 4064)

It was narrated that Al-Hasan said:
"The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'Whoever changes his religion, kill him.'"
( Sunan Nisai 4063 Book Reference : Book 37, Hadith 98, English Reference : Vol.5, Book 37, Hadith 4068)

Kill The Gays
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
That the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Whomever you find doing the actions of the people of Lut then kill the one doing it, and the one it is done to."
(jamia Tirmadi 1456, Book Reference: Book 17, Hadith 40, English Translation : Vol.3, Book 15, Hadith 1456)

It was narrated from Ibn`Abbas that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Lut, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.”( Sunan Ibn Maja Vol.3, Book 20, Hadith 2561, Arabic Reference: Book 20, hadith 2658)

Kill Idolaters Or Use Them For Ransom

Narrated 'Imran bin Husain:
That the Prophet (ﷺ) ransomed two men for the Muslims with a man from the idolaters.
[Abu 'Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Sahih.
The paternal uncle of Abu Al-Muhallab's name is 'Abdur Rahman bin 'Amr, and they also say it was Muhawiyah bin 'Amr. And Abu Qilabah's name is 'Abdullah bin Zaid Al-Jarmi (narrator in the chain)
This is acted upon according to most of the people of knowledge among the Companions of the Prophet(ﷺ) and others. It is for the Imam to decide to be generous with whom he wills among the captives, or to kill whom he wills among them, or to ransom whom he wills among them. Some of the people of knowledge preferred killing over ransoming.
Al-Awzai' said: "It has been conveyed to me. that this Ayah is abrogated: Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (to free them without ranson) or ransom (47:4). It was abrogated by: Kill them wherever you find them (2:191). This was narrated to us by Hannad (who said): "Ibn Al-Mubarak narrated to us, from Al-Awza'i."
Ishaq bin Mansur said: "I said to Ahmad: 'When the captives are captured' is killing or ransoming better to you?' He said: 'If they are able to ransom' then there is no harm in it. And if they kill, then I do not know of any harm in it.'" Ishaq said: "Wiping them out is better to me, unless it is someone well-known, so that it is hoped that a large amount will be obtained for him."( Jmia at tirmazi 1568, Book Reference : Book 21,Hadith 29, English Translation : Vol.3, Book 19, Hadith 1568)

Kill Jews

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
( Sahih al bukhari 2926, Book reference : Book 56, Hadith 139, English Reference : Vol.4, book 52, Hadith 177)

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar:
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews until some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O `Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.'"( Sahih Al Bukhari 2925, Book Reference : Book 56, Hadith 138, English Reference ; Vol.4, Book 52, Hadith 176)
