Fatwa on Terrorism & Suicide Bombings
In 2010, MQI launched the Fatwa on Terrorism & Suicide Bombings by Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. This work, the first of its kind ever, shot to worldwide prominence and acclaim. It is not merely a condemnation of terrorist attacks and suicide bombings from the Islamic perspective, but is the most authoritative Islamic scholarly critique of terrorism based on evidence from the Qur’an and Sunnah and authentic sources and drawing on scholarship of all Islamic schools of thought. It remains the most comprehensive and meticulously compiled Islamic refutation of the motives and methods of terrorism, completely dismantling terrorist ideology and proving that there is never any excuse or pretext for committing murder. Prior to the Fatwa, it was the case that many Muslims organisations or individuals condemned terrorism or terrorist attacks, but with caveats and qualifications. Since the launch of the Fatwa, there has been no alternative but to unequivocally condemn terrorism – with no ‘ifs and buts’. The Fatwa on Terrorism & Suicide Bombings is one of the course books accompanying the Islamic Curriculum on Peace & Counter – terrorism.
