"Why have not the Muslim leaders and scholars condemned the Sept 11, 2001 tragedy?" This question is asked many times by Americans and still being asked. Following are some statements by world renowned Muslim scholars. If you have not read these statements before, blame the bigoted and biased American media, not the Muslims!

  • "Not only did the terrorists hijack planes and destroy life, but also they hijacked the peaceful religion of Islam and split the brother and sisterhood of mankind." (Yusuf Islam)

Shaykh Abdul Aziz al-Ashaikh (Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia and Chairman of the Senior Ulama, on September 15th, 2001)


  • The terrorists acts, from the perspective of Islamic law, constitute the crime of hirabah (waging war against society)."

Out on the edge of darkness there rides a peace train,
'O Peace Train take this country, come take me home again...'
