Beirut & Paris Attacks
Praise be to Allah and may Allah raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad.
Verse 90 in Surat an-Nahl in the Qur’an means: “Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and the giving to the kin; and He forbids immorality, acts of evil and outrage. Allah instructs you in order that you may take heed.”
Darul-Fatwa the Islamic High Council of Australia on behalf of all those it represents from Islamic clerics, Imams, religious workers, Islamic organizations, centres and Muslim public utterly condemns the odious attacks in Beirut and Paris, which were carried out to weaken the Muslim resolve against extremism and to cast a shadow over their reputation world-wide.
The council renews its call to the international community to intensify its efforts in fighting a terrorism, which has undermined the security and safety of all nations world-wide. We solicit the collaboration and the uniting of all international efforts in the face of this global phenomenon against those who are supporting and furthering the cause of these unjust acts of terrorism.
Darulfatwa Australia makes clear to all governments and nations around the world that there is a difference between faithful Muslims and these extremist terrorists. It also makes clear that there is no relation and justification for this evil phenomenon in Islam.
Muslims around the world and in Australia in particular denounce these acts of mayhem and carnage, and they call for diligence and patience in the face of such atrocities.
