Message:

His Sheikha Hasina Wajed may ALLAH protect her

Prime Minister of the Republic of Bangladesh

Peace be upon you and ALLAH’s mercy and blessings be upon you

It has disheartened us the suffering of the Islamic movement symbols in Bangladesh, from arrests and executions of many scholars and symbols of the community, who were ministers and MPs in the Bangladesh Parliament. And the subsequent judgments in cases from actions attributed to them that were done in about forty years ago.

The Muslims continued in the East and the West the executions of Sheikh Abdul Quader Molla, and Sheikh Kamar Alzaman, and Sheikh Ali Ahsan Mujahid Muhammad, Mr. Salahuddin Chowdury, a former minister and one of the opposition leaders, in addition to medical negligence that killed Professor Ghulam Aazam, the head of the Islamic Group and Sheikh Abul Kalam Mohammad Yousuf, Deputy Governor of the group May ALLAH’s mercy be on them all.

In addition to those death sentences to the Bangladeshi scholars and leaders of thought and opinion, and they are now waiting for either the provisions, or absconders.

I am addressing you in my name and the name of my fellow members of the Board of Trustees of the IUMS and all its members, demanding you to personally intervene to stop the executions. To stop this tension which was caused due to these unjust death sentences.

I reclaim you, Sheikha Hasina, in the name of Islam, in the name of peace and in the name of the Islamic nation and in the name of the best interest of the community Bengali, to stop this series obnoxious, to gather your energy and the energy of your people to build, not to destroy, and cohesion not jarring, cohesion not discord.

ALLAH Almighty has warned us your excellency Prime Minister of the liability for this blood in this world and the hereafter. ALLAH Almighty has told us {that whoever kills a person or corruption in the earth as if he killed all human} [AL-Maidah 32].

The Almighty said: {and whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the wrath of God upon him and prepared for him a great punishment} [AL-Nisaa: 93]

The Prophet, peace be upon him, told us in the Hadeeth agreed in Bukhari and Muslim, from Ibn Masood may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace be upon him said: "The first thing that will be foreordain between people on the Day of Resurrection in the blood."

And what is narrated by Ahmad and Nisaii from Abdullah bin Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them: "the killed on came connected to the killer, he says: Oh ALLAH, ask him for what he killed me?"

I reclaim you and the nation's scholars behind to make a serious stand, and honest review of the policies that clash of Shariah scholars, in which blood is spilled, and the souls lost, and confiscated freedoms.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi

President of the IUMS
