Militants have no connection with Islam: Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti
Arafat, Dec 8 (ANI): Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh has said that militants have no link with Islam.
Calling for Muslims to unite in the face of terrorism, the Grand Mufti said: "Islam does not support terrorism in any form and strictly prohibits shedding blood of innocents."
Speaking on ongoing global financial crisis, the Grand Mufti said: "Today, we watch as this financial crisis enfolds and some companies and banks go bankrupt. This is the result of ignoring God's rules," he said, adding, "Muslims must abide by God's rules, and build their economies accordingly."
While delivering a Haj sermon at the Nimra mosque to about three million pilgrims in Arafat on Sunday, banks operating under Islamic rules avoid charging interest on loans and instead prefer shared ownership and splitting of profits.
Asking Muslim to make stronger their relation with Islam, Grand Mufti said, "These forces are trying their best to unveil Muslim women, promote drugs in Muslim societies and misinterpret Islam's teachings to distance Muslims from their religion," The Daily Times reports. (ANI)
