We the MuslimsAgainstTerror.com totally condemn the murder of Egyptian Shia cleric, Sheikh Hassan Shehata, and four of his devotees who it is reported, and video shows, were killed in a brutal attack by Takfiri extremists in Giza province near Cairo.
The attack was carried out on Sunday June 23, 2013, when a Crowd of Several hundred assailants who attacked Sheikh Shehata’s home and then set it on fire at the village of Abu mussalam.
I on behalf of Nigerian Muslims Against Terror Association offer our Condolences to the families of Sheikh Hassan Shehata and the four Shia followers, who were killed in act of mob violence, and stand with them in Solidarity during this difficult time. May Allah (swt)Guide and Protect them. (Ameen).
Whoever kills an innocent person, he has killed the whole of Mankind in essence. It is AsShaytan, the devil that brings about the divisions and feelings of superiority, to the extent of killing in the west for crimes in the east. Every Muslim and every human being is only responsible for his action and not the action of his brother, father or others who might belong to his associated group.
Please read the Amman Message, here on who is Muslim and who is not
(1)Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi‘i and Hanbali), the two Shi‘i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja‘fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible. Verily his (or her) blood, honour, and property are inviolable. Moreover, in accordance with the Shaykh Al-Azhar’s fatwa, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to the Ash‘ari creed or whoever practices real Tasawwuf (Sufism) an apostate. Likewise, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to true Salafi thought an apostate. Equally, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare as apostates any group of Muslims who believes in God, Glorified and Exalted be He, and His Messenger (may peace and blessings be upon him) and the pillars of faith, and acknowledges the five pillars of Islam, and does not deny any necessarily self-evident tenet of religion.
(2) There exists more in common between the various schools of Islamic jurisprudence than there is difference between them. The adherents to the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are in agreement as regards the basic principles of Islam. All believe in Allah (God), Glorified and Exalted be He, the One and the Unique; that the Noble Qur’an is the Revealed Word of God; and that our master Muhammad, may blessings and peace be upon him, is a Prophet and Messenger unto all mankind. All are in agreement about the five pillars of Islam: the two testaments of faith (shahadatayn); the ritual prayer (salat); alms giving (zakat); fasting the month of Ramadan (sawm), and the Hajj to the sacred house ofGod (in Mecca). All are also in agreement about the foundations of belief: belief in Allah (God), His angels, His scriptures, His messengers, and in the Day of Judgment, in Divine Providence in good and in evil. Disagreements between the ‘ulama (scholars) of the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are only with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu‘) and not as regards the principles and fundamentals (usul) [of the religion of Islam]. Disagreement with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu‘) is a mercy. Long ago it was said that variance in opinion among the ‘ulama (scholars) “is a good affair”.
We as Muslims must NEVER kill innocent people and worse still, Muslims. This is a disgrace to the noble deen of Islam that our prophet(S) taught us.
We were saddened by the meeting held in Egypt in which the president Morsi wa sin attendance and the extremists declared “Shia” as an enemy. By Allah who knows best, this is illegitimate. It was a sad day to see the president of Egypt in attendance at such meeting. These deaths are very much a consequence of the Takfiri pronouncements of that meeting.
Egypt’s prominent opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei has condemned the recent anti-Shia comments made at a pro-government conference in Cairo by the Egyptian President Morsi.
Addressing a rally of people who staged a sit-in protest outside the Egyptian ministry of culture, ElBaradei said a regime which insults the opposition and calls 150 million Shia Muslims ‘najis’ (unclean and impure) has no way but to relinquish power immediately.
The leader of the Addustour party said Egypt’s revolution has not ended yet and Egyptians will continue their revolutions to achieve their objectives.
His comments come a day after Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi severed the country’s relations with Syria over the conflict in the country.
We Muslims must be careful what we say and where we stand. May Allah not put us in position of responsibility for the death of innocent people. Ameen.
Quran 5:8 O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.
We invite you to join us:
From Nigeria to the world! We denounce terror.
Sir Doctor Amadi (JNR) JP, MPA, NMS.
