Keywords: Islamic State, Ideology, social media, CDA, a religious text


The differences between the Islamic doctrines in the interpretation of the verses of the Holy Quran gave terrorist groups like IS the opportunity to spread new ideologies of hatred, murder, and bloodshed. Then again, to recruit as many young people as possible from Europe and invite them to emigrate (Hijrah ) to the land of the Caliphate in Syria and Iraq. This study is based on content analysis, Van Dijk's (2006) ideology approach, and finally (Tafsir Fi Zilalil Quran). The study shows a clear contradiction between the interpretation of the Qur'an’s verses in (Tafsir Fi Zilalil Quran), and the interpretation of IS, the organization used (cut, copy, and paste) specific verses parts from the holy Quran that serves their ideologies without indicating when, why or how the verses were revealed or used before.
