- Saudi Cleric declares Shiite as Non-Muslims - 12/29/06
98% of the population of the world follows the middle path, meaning they believe in living and letting others live. 1% is extremists and the remaining 1% is the one who worries, protest and write about the extremists. You can dissect the group by religion, ethnicity, race, culture or any uniqueness, the ratio still holds good. Prove me otherwise.
The extremists in all religions (or any classification) are made of the same mould; To impose what they believe onto others. They are literalists, they do not have the faculties to see the wisdom in the words they read, the word itself is what they see; One the one hand, we have Osama, who believes that the world should wear the same glassess he wears to see it or else he is willing to wipe them out in the name of God. On the other hand, we have a group that sees the word Armageddon and want to pre-empt God Almighty and speed it up, bombing the hell out of people, life doesn't matter to them, it is the word of God they are following that matters and not What God created. They are loonies and hide in every faith and would nuke the earth if not checked.
Thanks God, they are less than 1% in every faith, race and ethnicity. The World has survied all those bad guys and will continue to flourish without any doubt. Remember, it is God's world, and good always wins in the end. As the shameless Majority, the least we can do is condemn bad acts, terrorism, extremism and anything that topsy turvies the world balance. We, at the World Muslim Congress condemn all terrorism and take the little steps that will lead towards peaceful co-existence. All of us, the 99% of 7 billion of us are in it together to bring peaceful co-existence.
The article below is inciting and ridiculous. No Muslim will subscribe to this non-sense unless they are paid to do it.
Whatever City you live in, you do have the traffic rules. If every Citizen follows it, then there is no need for the Traffic police writing the tickets, Lawyers defending them, Sign makers posting the signs, Judges making the decision and a whole department to handle the issues.
Whatever nation you live in, you do have the business laws to keep every one honest.Whichever democracy you live, you do have the laws that are built in with checks and balances to keep the governance accountable.
Whatever Religion you belong to, you do have the Religion laws to discourage individuals from doing bad things. Every key representative of religion has abused that power from Pope down right to the Imams and every one in between.
I urge every Muslim to condemn this non-sense. Every word of it is idiotic and un-Islamic. No Muslim from the 99% of Muslim population will subscribe to this unless they are paid to do it. After reading the piece below you can make your comments at the link given below. Insha Allah, when the website is done, it will remain in the website.
I urge every Muslim to condemn this non-sense. Every word of it is idiotic and un-Islamic.
SAUDI CLERIC ISSUE EDICT (FATWA) DECLARING SHIITES TO BE INFIDELS
The Associated Press Published: December 29, 2006
CAIRO, Egypt: A top Saudi Arabian Sunni cleric on Friday declared Shiites around the world to be infidels who should be considered worse than Jews or Christians, the latest sign of increasing sectarianism in the Middle East.
Abdul Rahman al-Barak, one of the top several Wahhabi clerics in Saudi Arabia and considered close to the Kingdom's royal family, also urged Sunnis worldwide to oppose reconciliation with Shiites. The Wahhabi stream of Sunni Islam that is followed in Saudi Arabia is conservative and views Shiites as heretics. "By and large, rejectionists (Shiites) are the most evil sect of the nation and they have all the ingredients of the infidels," Abdul Rahman wrote in a fatwa, or religious edict, that was posted on his web site Friday. "The general ruling is that they are infidels, apostates and hypocrites," he wrote. "They are more dangerous than Jews and Christians," he wrote in the edict, which Abdul Rahman said was in response to a question from a follower.
Like most hardline Sunnis, Abdul Rahman employed the word "rejectionists," used as a derogatory term to describe Shiites because they opted out of the Sunni school of Islamic theology.He also said the sect was the work of a Jewish conspiracy. Abdul Rahman's remarks comes amid concern by many Sunni Arabs about what they perceive as a Shiite revival following the 2003 war that toppled Saddam Hussein in Iraq. They include Jordan's King Abdullah and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Earlier this month, Nawaf Obeid, an adviser to the Saudi embassy in Washington, spoke of "massive Saudi intervention to stop Iranian-backed Shiite militias from butchering Iraqi Sunnis" if the United States withdraws from the country. Saudi citizens are also reportedly raising funds for Sunni insurgents in Iraq. Earlier this month, about 30 prominent Saudi Wahhabi clerics called on Sunni Muslims around the Middle East to support their brethren in Iraq against Shiites and praised the anti-American insurgency. Thousands of Iraqis have been killed this year in sectarian bloodshed between the majority Shiites and the Sunni Arab minority, who lost their dominance after the fall of Saddam Hussein. Saudi Arabia, like most Arab countries, is predominantly Sunni but has a significant Shiite minority.
