The Islamic Fiqh Council of the Muslim World League has recommended the establishment of an international committee to coordinate with the authorities concerned in other countries to educate Muslims about myths and heresies.
The educational program should be translated into different languages with the aim to familiarize the pilgrims and visitors with the laws of the Kingdom and to advise them to stay away from any fads, myths or superstitions.
The recommendation was made during the conclusion of the Council’s 22nd session, held under the auspices of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, in Makkah recently.
The Council meeting made seven decisions, one of the important being the rights of a divorcee under the Shariah law. Another decision involved paying compensation to people harmed due to a criminal act or malicious complaint.
It was also resolved to look into the issue of selling or leasing according to the market trend.
The council also decided that its approval should be taken for removing life support from brain dead patient.
However, the Council has strongly forbidden euthanasia by hastening the death of a person by changing any form of support on the request of the patient or his/her family members.
