‘Takfiris have no conception of Islamic teachings’: Lebanese cleric
Prominent Lebanese cleric, Shaykh Hammoud lectured crimes perpetrated by Takfiri groups urging Shi’ah and Sunni scholars to mobilize their effort for infighting against religious sedition and preventing the spread of the Takfiri ideology in Muslim societies, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
Speaking in a meeting with Shaykh Ahmad al-Qattan, Head of Lebanon’s Qawluna wal-Amal [We Say and Act] Society, the seasoned cleric highlighted as well the necessity of promoting unity and solidarity in the World of Islam.
“Takfiris have no conceptions of religious teachings and we must fight this ideology,” underscored the religious cleric stressing, “Hezbollah plays a telling role in preventing the threat of Takfiri terrorists from Lebanon and the military also has good gains in the fight against them.”
The Sunni scholar hailed the Syrian army and the Islamic Resistance for the victories they achieved in Aleppo and praised the Iraqi army and Popular Mobilization Forces for their actions in Mosul.
Shaykh Hammoud called for the quick formation of a government with the participation of all groups and the approval of a just election law in Lebanon.
Shaykh al-Qattan for his part placed stress on the prime importance of protecting national and Islamic unity in the light of the danger of Takfiri and Zionist terrorism noting, “All Lebanese politicians must unite in regard to the struggle against the Zionist and Takfiri enemies that are present on the borders and whose common goal is to strike at Lebanon.”
