Killing innocent people is a serious sin in Islam, says Vice President of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet's Mosque Dr Mohammad Bin Nasser Bin Mohammad Al Khuzaim, asserting that Islam does not have any relations with those who spread panic among people and are involved in militant activities.
“A Muslim cannot kill another Muslim or any non-Muslim person. People who want to destroy peace will go to hell,” Khuzaim said while addressing a conference held on Thursday at suhrawardy Udyan in the capital marking the 42nd founding anniversary of Islamic Foundation.
“The killing of innocent people is a terrible sin in Islam.”
Dr Khuzaim said the Saudi government is making constant effort to uphold the dignity of Muslims across the world. In view of this an institution has already been established to expand Islamic cultural education across the world and correction of the people.
He said: “Some people are trying to relate terrorism and militancy with Islam but Islam has no relation with these activities.”
The Islamic scholar said the Saudi king had vowed to unmask those who were trying to spread terrorism and militancy in the name of Islam.
He also urged all Muslims across the world to stand against terrorism and militancy.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the rally. Spiritual leaders, Imams, students and pious people from across the country joined the gathering.
