Grand Mufti of Saudi Arab Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh said Islam is based on justice and equity, which admits of no terrorism, extremis and injustice, Geo News reported Monday.
Delivering Hajj sermon at Nmira Mosque at Mount Arafat, he said Allah Almighty endowed us with hosts of blessings and boons; guidance of Islam is one of them, adding Islam is not a theoretical religion; instead, it is a practicable deen (code of conduct).
He said Islam impresses upon its followers to take better care of their families and societies. Islam has discrete ways of worshipping Allah and among them are, five-time prayers, fasting, zakat, charities and calling on people to do good and avoid bad.
Islam forbids markup altogether and prohibits extravagance, as it is a deen of moderation, he said. Grand Mufti of Saudi Arab stressed Islam intensely condemns terrorism and extremism, and that it warns strict punishment for those who unjustifiably spill blood and spread mischief on earth.
Sending divine revelations and raising the Prophets was meant for spending the message of Allah’s oneness; and this succession of guidance for human being is in progress, he said.
The Grand Mufti said Allah sent the Last and Final Prophet (peace be upon him) with complete code of conduct and this (shariah) is in harmony with human nature, as it caters to all man’s natural and material needs. Human inner being (nafs) excites him to do evil.
The Grand Mufti said the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) presented a comprehensive concept of ibadat.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh said Allah Almighty conferred men with reason and consciousness so that he can differentiate between good and bad. We should respect each other.
