Mudafi' Mazlum

A fatwa issued by Shafi'i scholar from Oxford, Sidi Afifi al-Akiti. A must-read article regarding suicide-bombeing, so-called jihad operations and killing of civillians.Although it differ a bit from fatwa issued by Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr Ali Ghom'a regarding Palestinian issue, the hukm derivation stated was clear, concise and with full clarity. But I still think that Palestinian issue should be treated as a separate entity.Read here

You concern over the Palestinian issue was voiced out by someone else too(I had numbered it response #1), and I think I had sent out Sidi Afifi's reply to this response by e-mail to you.

What do u mean the Palestinian issue should be treated differently? Are there double standards when it comes to civilians? Plus it will only dilute its worth and made it weak & feeble like CAIR's & MCB's so-called fatwas. We finally have a brave aalim who is also a mujahid :) Allaahu akbar!!!

Just read the other fab reviews:

Brother,

Different fatwa doesn't mean that there's double standards when it comes to civillians.The Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr Ali Ghom'a also has his own stand when stating that Palestians suicide-bombers as 'shuhadaa'.Sidi Afifi in his response said he is using the 'Qaul Asah', meaning that the more correct, more sound.....indirectly stating that there's khilaf in this issue.Wallahu a'lam.
