Fatwa prohibiting terrorism

The Centre for Spirituality and Cultural Awareness (CSCA) would like to express its support for the important work of Shaikh ul Islam Dr Tahir ul Qadri , founder of Minhaj-ul-Quran,  who will relate a comprehensive fatwa (religious ruling) that prohibits terrorism and suicide bombing.

Read a summary of the fatwa.


The original 600 page Fatwa document was written by Dr Tahir ul Qadri and is one of the most comprehensive documents of its kind to be published in the UK. It contains extracts from the Holy Quran and writings from other traditional scholars.  In the document, Dr Qadri makes the case that attacks against innocent citizens are "absolutely against the teachings of Islam and that Islam does not permit such acts on any excuse, reason or pretext."  The fatwa document was launched in Pakistan in December 2009 and published in the UK in January 2010.  An English language summary and introduction to the fatwa will be made available to people who attend the press conference.

Shaykh Mohammed Hisham Kabbani who has been a long term supporter of Dr Qadri's work is delighted with Dr Qadri's progress in having the voice of moderate Muslims and traditional Islam being heard more widely.  Shaykh Kabbani said "this scholarship is a landmark in enabling Muslims living in the UK to be able to silence the small minority of people who think it is ok to commit violent acts in the name of Islam.  We are happy and honoured to be working with Dr Qadri and Minhaj-ul-Quran to support the UK Muslims in countering the radical Islamist rhetoric in the world."
