Suicide attacks a curse for Muslims: Saudi Grand Mufti
Dubai: Describing terrorism and suicide
attacks as a curse for Muslims and the rest of the world, the
Saudi Grand Mufti has asked the believers to adhere to the
true principles of Islam.
Addressing pilgrims on the final day of the Haj Sheikh
Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh Al-Asheikh said, "The most serious
problem the Muslim community is facing lately is from deviant
ideology. The deviants have abandoned the right principles of
Islam and adopted a wrong creed. Therefore adherence to the
right creed is one of the most important duties of a Muslim."
"Suicide operations have become a curse of Muslim
lands. Innocent men, women and children are killed and their
installations wrecked," he said in his sermon before he led
the noon prayer at Namira mosque.
Al-Asheikh condemned terrorism and suicide operations
in unequivocal terms. Al-Asheikh also warned Muslims not to
become tools in the hands of their enemies.
"Terror is the most dangerous challenge that the
Muslims and the rest of the world are facing. It has taken
different shapes and forms. There are people who use it to
promote their interests," he said.
Meanwhile, the Haj pilgrimage reached its climax as
millions of Muslims, including over 1.6 lakh from India,
pelted pebbles on pillars symbolising the devil at Mina on the
final day of the Haj as the day was marked with mass animal
sacrifices. Muslims also performed Eid Al-Adha prayers at the
Grand Mosque in Makkah and Prophet`s Mosque in Madinah.
