True Muslims stand with Paris

In full conformity with the Islamic teachings, the European Council for Fatwa and Research vehemently abhors and deplores terrorism of all kinds regardless of the perpetrators’ race and faith. 

True Muslims stand with Paris

Murder, the most horrendous act of terrorism, is strictly forbidden in Islam.

In a deterring way Allah states that the murder of one person is as evil as killing all people.

In the Qur’an it is stated: “whoever kills a soul

unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely.

And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.” (Trans. 05:32).

On this basis, the European Council for Fatwa and Research unequivocally condemns the atrocities perpetrated in Paris.

The ECFR stresses that these crimes can by no means be classified as a just struggle.

We share the shock and the horror of what was shown on the internet and television.

As it condemns all types of terrorism; state, individual and extremist groups, the ECFR appeals to the entire world to live in peace.
