Saudi Mufti Slams Suicide Attacks in Hajj Sermon
[Tolo News] One of the highest-ranking Islamic scholars Mufti-e-Azam Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in their national face...
said in his Hajj address that suicide kabooms are prohibited in Islam.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Sheikh emphasised in his sermon to some two million Moslems performing the day-of-Arafat obligations on Mount Arafat, a hill to the east of Mecca, that anyone who attempts or carries out a suicide attack will not be forgiven by God.
Saying that there was no link between Islam and terrorism, Mufti-e-Azam stressed Islam was a religion of peace, prosperity and brotherhood.
Islam teaches patience and tolerance and dismisses all kinds of violence in society, he said in the hajj sermon, adding that Moslems are obligated to do no harm to others on the basis of their caste, creed or religion.
He urged the pilgrims and all Moslems to come together as a single economic force and focus on improving science and technology to help overcome conflict and resolve the problems faced in the socio-economic arena of the Moslem world.
| He said this in Saudi Arabia? Goodness.|
The Sheikh said that the Islamic system of governance was better than a fake democracy and that political problems can be solved through dialogue.
