Today the AhlulBayt Islamic Mission (AIM) released a statement in condemnation of the recent defamatory remarks in yet another attempt to sow fitna amongst Muslims. The statement reads as follows:
In His Name, the Most High,
The AhlulBayt Islamic Mission (AIM) condemns and denounces activities that slander the wives of the Holy Prophet [s] and his noble companions.
We believe that such actions are executed in service of the enemies of Islam who wish to exploit sensitivities and incite sectarianism amongst Muslims.
In this regard, AIM feels obliged to warn the community of obscure persons and organisations that intentionally take advantage of religious symbols in order to provoke tension and hostility, all the while neglecting the major challenges that face the Ummah.
Wa Min Allah Al-Tawfiq.
