ISIS

Summary: ISIS is trying something new in their magazine with an article focused on telling husbands and wives to keep marriage issues to themselves.

ISIS is doling out relationship advice in their latest issue. The Rumiyah magazine generally is filled with how-to articles on carrying out terror attacks and calls to attack Western sites but the terror organization is branching out. The new article warns couples to refrain from discussing their marriage to others.

The article, “The Flesh of Your Spouse Is Poisonous,” states, “Some spouses – be they men or women – are not careful when it comes to exposing their homes to gossip and idle talk. We often find husbands talking about the problems that happen between them and their wives in both private and public gatherings, and also find that wives do so as well. Each of them might mention the other, in the latter’s absence, with displeasing terms.”

The terror group stresses, “Backbiting is a disease of the tongue that only incurs ruin and loss.” They particularly target women from backbiting “their husband and their co-wife,” explaining “if some of them were to only limit themselves to listening!”

The article continues, “When one woman complains against her husband, some of her friends react with incitement and provocation. Worse still, some women even guide their sister to the court and explain the procedure for divorce. The same applies regarding one’s co-wife. Many women do not refrain from speaking ill of their co-wives. Instead, among them is she would go as far as to insult her co-wife and curse her in her absence due to excessive jealousy. This happens during a meeting of women or in the presence of the husband, who often has no clue as to what he can do! Should he fight off the hostility of this sharp-tongued woman against himself or against his absent wife? Indeed, Allah’s help must be sought.”

There is some rebuke of men in the article, calling them unintelligent and lacking “manliness” if they speak about the secrets of their home to others.”

The article suggests that when there are problems at home, to seek counsel from one “who is trusted with regards to his religion and morals, and who safeguards the secrets of those of his brothers who speak to him.” They understand that the “human psyche can sometimes reach its bearable capacity” but the process of letting off steam does not include creating a “scandal.”
