1) Whoever believes in the oneness of God, in the messengership of Muhammad al-Mustafa and the finality of prophecy in him and in the Day of Judgment is a Muslim.
2) Violating the life, property, and the chastity of every Muslim is emphatically forbidden (haram).
3) A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. In protecting this brotherhood, it becomes necessary to cooperate with each other in the furtherance of Islam and excuse one’s self from getting involved in matters that might cause disagreements between each other.
4) Instigating divisiveness between the adherents of the Islamic schools of thought (madhahib) is being treacherous to the religion of Islam.
