MOUNT ARAFAT / SAUDI ARABIA: Addressing millions of Hajj pilgrims, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz said those shedding blood and spreading anarchy in society are enemies of Allah and not followers of Islam.
In his sermon from Masjid-e-Nimra, he said “Islam is a religion of peace and strongly disapproves acts of terrorism. It is the responsibility of religious scholars to spread the message of peace.”
“Our religion preaches brotherhood, tolerance and harmony for the establishment of a society, which respects rights of all the segments of the society,” he said.
“Islam is the solution for the problems” of Muslims, he said, warning the faithful of “a media and cultural invasion that seeks to weaken (their) faith.”
