Respecting Revered Figures

Whether done by an individual or a group, fomenting division, inciting sectarian sentiments especially by disrespecting the revered figures and beliefs of Muslims and creating divisiveness among the ranks of the followers of the great Prophet of God (S) are not permissible from a rational and a shar‘i basis. Similarly, the commission of wanton acts of destruction and suicide attacks by takfirist groups with a rigid and hard-hearted attitude that results in the killing of innocent Muslims is shameful and inhuman, and it would pain the heart of every normal person. There is no doubt that these types of actions are what the enemies of Islam and Muslims desire and welcome.

Disrespecting the revered figures and beliefs of Muslims and creating divisiveness among the ranks of the followers of the great Prophet of God (S) is not permissible on a rational and a shar‘i basis1.
