General Condemnation of Terrorism and Violence

Abdhullah Azam categorically condemns all acts of terrorism, whether committed by individuals or states, regardless of religious or political affiliation.

Killing innocent human beings is a heinous act, so much so that God in the Qur’an has explained to us that killing one innocent human being is tantamount to killing the whole of humanity:

“…it is as if he kills all mankind, while if any saves a life it is as if he saves the lives of all mankind.” [Qur’an 5:32]

The Scholars of Islam unanimously agree that our duty in this country [Sri Lanka] is to live peacefully as compassionate engaged citizens and to humbly provide a sense of moral leadership.
