The Holy Quran expressly states that under no circumstance can one take the life of an innocent.
The above Quranic verses highlight the fact that Allahu Ta’aala has sent the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) as a person of compassion to this world, and also explain that Islam condemns extremism, and exhorts moderation at all times. and not to be unfair with others. Islam prohibits suicide, categorizing it as a grave sin and has also warned that those who engage in it will have to face harsh punishment in the hereafter. This has been confirmed in more than 40 Hadiths.
Islam exhorts Muslims to follow the law of the land, and does not permit individuals to take the law into their own hands.
It is evident that as at present, there are certain misguided individuals claiming to be Muslims across the world who have been brainwashed, espousing extremist and violent ideologies that are totally against Islam, resulting in Islamophobia across the world.
The All Ceylon Jammiyyathul Ulama with other Muslim organizations, collectively declared on 2015.07.23 that there is no connection between extremist ideologies and Islam.  The Fatwas of international Fatwa bodies also state accordingly.
We unreservedly condemned the dastardly attacks on Easter Sunday, 2019.04.21, carried out by Zaharan Hashim and his accomplices, which resulted in deaths and injury to innocents, and the desecration and destruction of churches and hotels. Further, we released a fatwa to reject the janazas of the suicide bombers and not give them an Islamic burial.
Zaharan Hashim and his extremist accomplices had misquoted the Quranic verses and Hadith. There is no warrant either in the Holy Quran or the Hadith to justify their dastardly acts. In fact, we have clarified this position in the book titled ‘NO EXTREMISM IN THE NAME OF RELIGION’, published by us in collaboration with The Department of Muslim Religious and Cultural Affairs.
We urge all Muslims to be vigilant and observant at all times to guard against extremism in order to safeguard the community and our Motherland.
