Text of the message by World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought condemning the recent sacrilege of Islamic sanctities is as follows:
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِلْعَالَمِينَ ﴿الانبیاء/۱۰۷﴾
We have sent you for no other reason but to be a mercy for mankind
The greatest aspect of the mission of The Holy Prophet of Islam, Mohammad Mustafa (PBUH), is to guide and lead people towards salvation and redemption. This issue was the main duty of all the divine prophets, and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) accomplished this mission with all his power. Fourteen centuries after this great invitation, which should be considered the turning point of the human age, the conscious hearts of the people still love this living truth and use it as their role model and example of goodness. Even those who do not believe in this saving call, facing this great movement, treat it with respect and praise the way and method of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
In the present age, when humanity feels in need for heavenly guidance more than ever and is converting to the enlightened school of Islam day by day, the ignoble and blind-heartedpeople, for hostility and enmity, have chosen a vulgar way outside the realm of human dignity, that is, they have taken the method of ridicule. It is the divine tradition that gives the deviants a respite for a few mornings, maybe they will wake up and take the path of guidance and salvation, otherwise the painful punishment, which arises from their heinous act, will be waiting for them.
The ridiculous and frequent insults of the insulting magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in France and the burning of the Holy book of Quran in Sweden are examples of modern ignorance and the intellectual and moral decline of the present age. We Muslims, while respecting the followers of all the holy prophets of God, believe that insulting the Holy Prophet (PBUH),is insulting all the divine prophets and disrespecting the Holy Quran is disrespecting the books of all the prophets.
Therefore, while expressing our disgust with this ignorant and irrational act and condemning it, we expect all the awakened followers of the divine religions, especially Muslims, to react to these insults and prove to the mockers that: “The followers of monotheistic religions are united facing a common enemy.” Just as Muslims defended their respected Christians and Yazidis in Syria and Iraq, against the deceived and extremist elements known as ISIS, and as Hezbollah in Lebanon has vigorously defended its Christian compatriots, it is now due to use the media and Cyberspace in particular, to show an appropriate response to these unjust actions.
Legal communities are expected to take decisive action against these derogatory acts in accordance with international laws.
Verily Allah is the grantor of success
