Fatwa Against Terrorism


In the name of Allah, the Most-Merciful, the All-Compassionate assalam.gif
“May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon You”

Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah
As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

Fatwa Against Terrorism

Why Don’t We Hear Imams Condemn Terrorism?

Many Times i faced this situation or few people ask “few days back someone did killed there and there and there” do you condemn this…why muslims leaders don;t speak againt those acts! we are always asked :
Why have we not heard a single word from Muslim leaders condemning violence, destructure and terrorism? Why? We Don’t Hear Anything From Imams – Why?
Why? Good question. Fact is – Imams everywhere have spoken out against terrorism since the very beginning of all of the problems – but the real question should be:
Why the Media Doesn’t Tell You the Truth?
Yusuf Estes tells us he has heard many Muslim leaders condemn all acts of terror and violence. He says…
“I personally have heard thousands of imams speaking against this including myself – but it seems western news media DOES NOT PUBLISH IT! So, maybe we should start by asking the media – the TV news people, the newspaper reporters, media folks in general –

“Why are you guys NOT PUBLISHING THE FACTS?” – Because we have over 340 imams on many websites, documents and live speeches – all publicly declaring over and again, ISLAM CONDEMS TERRORISM!

By the way, after you read this document, we ask you the question: “Are you going to just sit there – or are you going to start emailing this link to everyone you know, so they can read the truth?” – Or are you going to sit back and do nothing, just like all of the media?
Here is one of many documents published in the past years where Muslim leaders, Imams, Sheiks and teachers of Islam have all spoken out and even signed these documents – in public – hoping the people will know the truth of Islam:


The Fiqh Council of North America wishes to reaffirm Islam’s absolute condemnation of terrorism and religious extremism.
Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives.
There is no justification in Islam for extremism or terrorism. Targeting civilians’ life and property through suicide bombings or any other method of attack is Haram – or forbidden – and those who commit these barbaric acts are criminals, not “martyrs.”

The Quran, Islam’s revealed text, states: “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.”
[Noble Quran 5:32]

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said there is no excuse for committing unjust acts:

“Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

God mandates moderation in faith and in all aspects of life when He states in the Quran:

“We made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind.” [Noble Quran 2:143]
In another verse, God explains our duties as human beings when he says “Let there arise from among you a band of people who invite to righteousness, and enjoin good and forbid evil.” [Noble Quran 3:104]

Islam teaches us to act in a caring manner to all of God’s creation. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), who is described in the Quran as “a mercy to the worlds” said: “All creation is the family of God, and the person most beloved by God (is the one) who is kind and caring toward His family.”
In the light of the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah we clearly and strongly state:
1. All acts of terrorism targeting civilians are Haram (forbidden) in Islam.
2. It is Haram for a Muslim to cooperate with any individual or group that is involved in any act of terrorism or violence.
3. It is the civic and religious duty of Muslims to cooperate with law enforcement authorities to protect the lives of all civilians.
We issue this fatwa following the guidance of our scripture, the Quran, and the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). We urge all people to resolve all conflicts in just and peaceful manners.
We pray for the defeat of extremism and terrorism. We pray for the safety and security of our country, the United States, and its people. We pray for the safety and security of all inhabitants of our planet. We pray that interfaith harmony and cooperation prevail both in the United States and all around the globe.
