Terrorism is forbidden in Islam and such acts should not be reciprocated at any cost, Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah said in his Haj sermon at Mount Arafat on Monday.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz said since Allah had bestowed humans with reason, it was binding on them to differentiate between good and evil.
“Islam believes in coexistence and disapproves of all acts which aim at sowing strife in society. Spilling the blood of human beings amounts to invoking the wrath of God.”
The Pakistan Times also has a bit longer piece summarizing the sermon. I have not yet seen an English language translation of the entire sermon. If you see it, please give us a link in the comments.
If you see any mention of the sermon in the US mainstream media, please also provide a link. As I post it has been six hours since the sermon was completed and the only mention I have found so far is a Deutsch Presse-Agentur wire story buried at Monsters & Critics.
