Al-Qaradawi declares ‘Caliphate’ in Iraq “legally void” under Islamic law

Summary: Yusef Al-Qaradawi, one of the top scholars often referred to by the Muslim Brotherhood, declared that the Islamic State in Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) proclamation of a caliphate is legally void and does not serve the Islamist project.

He added that “we wish for a caliphate to be created today before tomorrow, but the steps taken by ISIS will have dire consequences on Sunnis in Iraq and revolution in Syria.”
