The Mufti of KSA [Al-Allaamah Abdul-Azeez Aala Shaikh] Speaks Against Boko Haram [The Khawaarij of Nigeria]
“This is a group that has been set up to smear the image of Islam and must be offered advice, shown their wrong path and be made to reject it,”
Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh, the top religious authority in the birthplace of Islam, told the Arabic-language newspaper al-Hayat in an interview published on Friday, Reuters reported.
“These groups are not on the right path because Islam is against kidnapping, killing and aggression,” he said.
“Marrying kidnapped girls is not permitted.”
Al-Allaamah Abdul Azeez Aala Shaikh (may Allaah preserve him) says:
*Their actions are evil and harmful for Islam and the Muslims.
*Their actions are destructive.
*Abducting girls is from the actions of a misguided group.
*If Boka Haraam are claiming a call to jihad, then it is nothing but ignorance and enmity against Islaam and the Muslims.
*Boka Haraam are not upon correctness and guidance because Islaam opposes abduction/kidnapping, unlawful killing and transgression.
*Marrying off kidnapped/abducted females is haraam and it is not permissible to give them in marriage.
