Using the right quranic verses along with a few emotional speeches about injustice been done to Muslims by the hands of the west n others, is used to justify the fight of theirs. Even though the Quran strictly forbiddes suicide, they have found a way to justify it and send young men to blow themselves up for a militant cause ( that's extremely unislamic )
Using ahadith is one of their best ways to manipulate the young to believe this is some part of a prophecy being fulfilled and they are awaiting jesus-pbuh to return any day now. Read an article discussing this and wanted to share a part of it with the readers.
ISIS bases much of its recruitment and expansion strategy around the idea that the end times are upon us.
The extremist group pushes the idea that the apocalypse is nigh and that Islamic fighters will battle the "infidels" of the West in Dabiq, a town in Syria that ISIS now controls.
ISIS (also known as the Islamic State) uses Islamic scripture and prophecies to bolster its assertion, but it conveniently ignores one particularly damning prophecy that could inherently challenge the legitimacy of its self-declared "caliphate" — the territory in Iraq and Syria it controls that is central to Islamic doomsday prophecies.
Will McCants, director of the Project on US Relations with the Islamic World at the Brookings Institution, mentions it in his new book, "The ISIS Apocalypse."
"There is one prophecy about the Antichrist that the Islamic State and its fans have studiously avoided, even though it is in a collection of prophecies they revere: The Antichrist will 'appear in the empty area between Sham [Syria] and Iraq,'" McCants wrote. "That, of course, is precisely where the Islamic State is located."
As McCants explained in his book, Jesus and the Antichrist do have a place in Islamic foretellings.
"The Qur'an portrays Jesus as a messenger of God and his followers as those 'nearest in love to the believers' (5:82)," McCants wrote. "But the prophecies attributed to Muhammad outside the Qur'an foresee Jesus returning to fight alongside the Muslims against the infidels. As in the Bible, the appearance of Jesus heralds the Last Days. ...
"He will lead the Muslims in a war against the Jews, who will fight on behalf of the Antichrist."

Important note to all readers.
Islam was not spread by wars of injustices, Battles took place and Mohammad-pbuh fought along side muslims ( like a real general ), but he was given strict orders of engagement in regards the elders, women, children, prisoners, and to all forms of life, even buildings had protection rights. Battle field things stayed on the battle field. When Mohammad-pbuh clearly had the upper hand and most the people's support. He didn't even punish those who tried to kill him.
His way to make treaties and agreements was another reason we can't ignore his prophetic genius. A man from one of the harshest environments is all about love, compassion and peace.
Any one acting in contrary to that, does not know mohammad-pbuh or his teachings.
