Describing terrorism and suicide attacks as a curse for Muslims and the rest of the world, the Saudi Grand Mufti has asked the believers to adhere to the true principles of Islam.
Addressing pilgrims on the final day of the Haj Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh Al-Asheikh said, "The most serious problem the Muslim community is facing lately is from deviant ideology. The deviants have abandoned the right principles of Islam and adopted a wrong creed. Therefore adherence to the right creed is one of the most important duties of a Muslim."
"Suicide operations have become a curse of Muslim lands. Innocent men, women and children are killed and their installations wrecked," he said in his sermon before he led the noon prayer at Namira mosque.
Al-Asheikh condemned terrorism and suicide operations in unequivocal terms. Al-Asheikh also warned Muslims not to become tools in the hands of their enemies.
"Terror is the most dangerous challenge that the Muslims and the rest of the world are facing. It has taken different shapes and forms. There are people who use it to promote their interests," he said.
Meanwhile, the Haj pilgrimage reached its climax as millions of Muslims, including over 1.6 lakh from India, pelted pebbles on pillars symbolising the devil at Mina on the final day of the Haj as the day was marked with mass animal sacrifices. Muslims also performed Eid Al-Adha prayers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and Prophet's Mosque in Madinah. PTI
