Dar al- Iftaa strongly condemned killing 122 Yemeni people in two mosques attacks in Sana’a
Dr. Shawki Allam, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, strongly condemned terrorists bombing two Shi’i mosques in the Yemeni capital Sana’a during the Friday prayer which resulted in killing 122 people and hundreds were injured.
In a statement, the Grand Mufti stressed that the bloody terrorist attack did not observe the sanctity of the house of Allah. They resort to blood-shed and attacked the Muslims who were gathered to perform the Friday prayer and; therefore, they deserved Allah’s condemnation in this life and His severe punishment in the Hereafter. Allah the Almighty says: “And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment.” [2: 114]
The Grand Mufti added, these terrorists aim to spread unrest and sectarianism in Yemen in order to promote disunity among the sons of the same nation and further make them fall preys to the callers of terrorism and extremism.
Dr. Allam, called upon the Yemeni people not to respond to the callers of terrorism and extremism and to stand united against these terrorist groups which seek the destruction of their country.
