Shaykh Luhaydaan said, “In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy. All praise belongs to Allah, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon the most noble of all the creation, our Prophet Muhammad, his family, companions, and all those who follow them in goodness.
No doubt, that which we have heard and that which has been spread about this serious, heinous criminal act [shows] that this is an evil immoral act. It is not ever possible that Islam sanctions this, nor anyone truthful from mankind, who believes in Allah, the Exalted.
This is because this is evil, deceit, treachery, causing fear and terror.
Likewise it involves [harming] those who have no connection to foreign politics and policy, such as women and children [or] those who are incapable [of harming Muslims like the disabled and elderly] or may not be incapable [of harming Muslims but are civilians], [transgressing against innocent people by committing] this heinous, serious, atrocity [is a major sin].
Thus, every intelligent believer condemns this, without doubt.
Also, the Islamic countries that I have heard, and at the foremost of them is the Land of the two Holy Sanctuaries [Saudi Arabia] have severely condemned these actions.
This is a criminal act that deserves to be condemned by every believer and every intelligent person.
I ask Allah, the Exalted and Most High, to thwart [the actions] of the people of evil and the helpers of vileness and their leaders, [the people of] deceit and treachery, to thwart [their actions] immediately, without any delay. And Allah’s help is sought.” Ref: germantownmasjid.com
