In the Name of Allāh, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Statement on Iraq
Praise is due to Allāh, Lord of the worlds, may the blessings and peace be upon our master Muhammad, the last of prophets, on his family, and all his companions,
The International Islamic Fiqh Academy in its 15th Session observed the grossly sad events taking place in Iraq, and the dangerous conspiracies being agitated for the sake of breaking its unity, along with the consequent afflictions and rac- ist and sectarian plights that generate massive devastation, set the whole region in flames of destructive conflicts, and wide open the doors to enemies of the Ummah who waylay its peace and success.
The Academy, based on its Islamic commitment and duty of advice that its scholars have to discharge to the Ummah, strongly condemns all the plots be- ing hatched against Iraq and declares its full support to the Iraqi people, and encourages them to spare no effort in preventing these afflictions and preserving their unity in the face of the tyrannical occupation. They should work together for Iraq to regain its full sovereignty and maintain the right for every citizen to enjoy justice and brotherhood.
The Academy calls upon all Iraqis; Arabs, Kurds and Turcoman; Sunnis and Shiites; as well as all the Iraqi Fiqh schools, political affiliations, and tribal com- munities, to join hands together, one line, so that Iraq can survive the risks it is now facing, and come back to play its regional and international role under the banner of the Ummah.
Indeed, Allāh is the Giver of Success.
