Hajj sermon: Islam negates aggression says Grand Mufti

Express Tribune: MOUNT ARAFAT: Calling people to follow Islam in its true sense, Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah al ash Sheikh said Islam as a religion shuns aggression. 

Addressing a huge gathering at Nimra Mosque, Sheikh said that poverty and ignorance are two major problems faced by the followers of Islam.

He advised that Muslims should unite to address the issues faced by the ummah.

Calling people to follow the teachings of Quran and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Sheikh said Muslims should ask Allah alone for help.
