In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful
The news of the suicide attacks of Daesh on two Egyptian churches made us shocked and sorrowful.
Unfortunately, the Takfīrī terrorist groups, who know nothing of Islam, commit unspeakable and horrendous crimes everywhere around the globe on a daily basis, just to tarnish the good name of Islam and spread Islamophobia in the world. One day they attack the pedestrians in Sweden, another day they massacre the innocent subway passengers in Russia, and now they have targeted innocent Christians in their churches in different Egyptian cities.
We have repeatedly said that, in order to deliver mankind from this wave of violence and terror, all countries, governments, and religious leaders must join hands, with strong determination, to cut all support to these Takfīrī groups and condemn them worldwide. In today’s world, however, one does not see such a strong will and determination to combat terrorism.
I condole with the great Egyptian Nation and I pray to Allah the Almighty to grant the bereaved patience and fortitude, and the wounded the restoration of their health.
