What more can you tell us about the Naqshbandis who are allied with ISIL? How big are they and how long have they been organized as a fighting force? I'm aware that they are the only Sufi order in the Sunni side of the schism (though they all deny being part of the schism). But would the Saudi and Gulfi Wahabis fund Sufis even if they were Sunni? Are the ISIL types inclined to tolerate their rituals? There is a lineage of Naqshbandis in the States I've encountered who would deny anything do with politics but after a while of listening it comes out that they have a soft spot for the Ottoman Empire.
