ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the views of Muslims regarding Abu Musab Al Zarqawi and how Al Qaeda reflects Islam. At the Al Falah Mosque, which Zarqawi used to attend, iman Mustafa Suleiman has labeled Zarqaqi "kufr," which means he is not longer part of the Islamic community. According to a poll of Jordanians, 86.4 percent think that Al Qaeda is not acting in accordance with the tenets of Islam and only 1% believed Zarqawi's attacks on three Western hotels in Jordan were in the interest of the Arab cause.
