    Arrow Is Mary venerated/worshipped/prayed to by Sunnis?

    Report bad ads?

    Assalam Alaykoum,

    I was reading this article: diffen.com/difference/Islam_vs_Judaism

    When suddenly I saw this part:

    Praying to Saints, Mary, and Angel
    Shiites ask for Saints' intercession, but, Sunnis do not. Mary is venerated by both Sunnis and Shiites however.
    Is it true that "Mary is venerated by Sunnis"?

    If I’m not mistaken, a month ago I read on another website that Sunnis do not worship/pray to anyone other than Allah. So either there is one exception for Mary, or diffen.com is wrong.

    Venerate means to have respect for someone, so yes, all Muslims respect Mary...

    Muslims do not worship Mary...

    Veneration can be defined as “respect or awe directed toward someone due to his/her value or greatness.”

    So all scholars, prophets, and pious people and parents are venerated in Islam in varying degrees.

    The only difference for sunni vs others is that we keep veneration to the limit of the definition and do not go to extremes in that we start praying to them or as others say "ask them to intercede" on our behalf to God.

    We respect Mary :AS: but we do not worship her. That'd be kufr akbar, and take one out of Islam. The only one we Sunnis worship is Allah, because worship is the sole exclusive right of Allah. In other words, No one has the right to be worshipped except for Allah.

    Allah knows best.
