Mufti Aisor – Blood Shedding Fatwa Distorts Image of Islam

Egypt’s Mufti Aisor, Dr. Ibrahim Negm said that Islam prohibits bloodshed and violence in all forms. He added that all fatwas, which call for blood shedding and violence distort the image of Islam and Muslims before the entire world.

In a telephone interview with American NPR network, Negm called on the US media to derive religious information from Al-Azhar scholars. He explained that both the Egyptian Fatwa House “Darul-Ifta” and Al-Azhar are keen to communicate with the world and building bridges of mutual understanding.

Dr. Negam made clear that blood shedding fatwas distort image of Islam, stressing importance of showing the real face of Islam.
