Islam Against Extremism

Despising any theological belief is our human right but remember the statement of the our beloved Prophet (s) narrated by his family:

إياكم والغلو في الدين

Extremism in religion can lead to kufr & Shirk (Rafidism) & indiscriminate slaughter of others (Daesh, Shia death Squads, Iranian Shia militias etc.)

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O people, beware of extremism (Ghuluww) in religion for those who came before you were only destroyed because of extremism in religion.”
