Shaikh Afifi on terrorism

Shaikh Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti has published a long article fisking an article apparently written by Omar Bakri Muhammad, which calls actions like the Sept 11 hijackings “a viable option in Jihad” for Muslims who don’t live in the west. The shaikh, a Malaysian Shafi’i scholar based in Oxford, calls the article’s endorsement of terrorism “not only an anomaly [shadh] and very weak [wahin] but also completely wrong [batil] and a misguided innovation [bid’a dalala]”.
