Summary/Abstract: The status of the woman in the Islamic religion is very special. In the social sphere their status is minimal or almost non-existent. The terrorist organization known as Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS, Dae’sh) has paid special attention to the woman’s status and roles in the society. This can be seen by analysing the group’s latest production, “Rumiyah” magazine.Women are considered an important part of the struggle the Islamic State is taking against“unbelievers”1. They are the ones who nurture and grow future soldiers and are responsible for taking care of the household. They can, at the will of their husbands, leave their homes and join military operations.
