    We have had so much blood shed may allah grant this to be a message to the ummah to unify! at least if stated as a offence to islam if killing a shia or sunni then those who are doing so will be stated as against islam not with it!!

    and we together should spread this mesage for dont doubt it is the only answer to a peaceful future for us...

    A sign of unity


    About 50 Iraqi Muslim scholars representing the country’s Shia and Sunni communities met yesterday at the royal palace in Mecca, Saudi Arabia that overlooks the Ka’aba, Islam’s holiest site, and signed an edict (Fatwa) making attacks on Muslims in Iraq a sin.

    The meeting was held under the auspices of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the world's largest Muslim political grouping, with the aim of ending the deadly attacks in Iraq that have escalated to alarming levels and continue to claim scores of civilian lives everyday.

    The OIC’s initiative aims at stopping “the turmoil in Iraq out of consciousness of its responsibility before Allah, the Islamic nation and history,” OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said in a statement. Iraq’s Shia and Sunni leaders will carry the Mecca Document, which was prepared by the OIC, back to Iraq to end spiraling violence in the Islamic country, added the OIC head in a statement.

    The names of the scholars who took part in the initiative haven’t been revealed to the media.

    “The document is aimed at ending bloodshed among Muslims in Iraq and putting an end to the sectarian fighting and the terrorizing of the innocent people there,” Mahdi Fathallah, the director of OIC’s political affairs, said at a press conference on Friday.

    “The sectarian fighting in Iraq has caused a great deal of concern, not only for the Iraqi people but for all Muslims,” he said. “It, therefore, became incumbent upon the Ummah to try and defuse the situation,” he added, citing a Qur’anic verse that says: “If two parties among the believers fall into a quarrel, make peace between them.”

    The meeting however has no political agenda, Mr. Fathallah stressed.

    “The Ulemas (Sunni clerics) have issued a fatwa that has obtained the support of the Marjaya (Shia religious authorities) in Iraq and it should be implemented,” OIC Secretary General said.

    The text, expected to be distributed throughout Iraq in Arabic and English, also calls for suspected criminals to be judged ‘in a just manner’.

    The Mecca Document, which includes calls to safeguard the ‘goods, blood and honour of the Muslim’, received full approval from Iraq’s key religious and political leaderships, including Shia leader Ali Al-Sistani, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki and Shia Cleric Muqtada Al Sadr.

    “It is not a conference, a symposium, a debate, a discussion or a form of negotiation. It is simply a meeting of Ulema (religious scholars) from both communities,” Mr. Fathallah was quoted as saying. “They have come together to underline the importance of unity and to help stop the spilling of Muslim blood in the streets of Iraq.”

    “The taking of even one single innocent life is viewed in Islam as equivalent to a homicide against all people on earth. It is agreed among all the believers that one is duty-bound to avoid disobedience to Allah in whose eyes spilling the blood of an innocent is the most despicable sin.”

    Asked about how effective the move would be, Mr. Fathallah said:

    “For such a document to be issued from the holy city of Mecca and in the blessed month of Ramadan in itself constitutes a wake-up call for Muslims. It would enlighten them on their duties vis-à-vis the sectarian conflict and remind all Muslims and especially Iraqis of Allah’s law in this regard.”

    “Since the document does not contain any controversial matter whatsoever, we are optimistic that success will be on our side for us to be able to assist our brothers in Iraq to live in peace and security and to help put an end to the sectarian bloodshed there,” Fathallah said.

    “We want every Muslim to understand the Qur’anic injunctions to desist from spilling Muslim blood,” he added.

    Finally, the document, which was signed by the representatives from the two main branches of Islam, stressed the need for both communities Sunnis and Shias to “join ranks with a view to the independence of Iraq and its territorial integrity.”

    Political experts however suggest that bloodshed in Iraq is not a result of sectarian tension, but rather a plot by the Occupation Authority to instigate turmoil in Iraq, that would grant the U.S. an extended military presence in the country.

    Re: Finally a sign of unity!!

    The article started to make sense until the last line. This conspiracy by so-called "political experts" that the U.S. wants sectarian violence in Iraq so they can "stay longer" is so absurd its laughable. Whoever holds this belief obviously has little experience with American politics. That is exactly what the U.S. Congress and the American people don't want. Donald Rumsfeld didn't want it, which is why he concentrated on preparing a smaller and highly mobile force to take Iraq. Nobody on the American side expected a long drawn out occupation creating a U.S. occupied Gaza Strip.

    Other than that, the meeting in Saudi Arabia sounded like a good thing.

    Greetings and peace be with you Rou; thanks for starting this thread.

    Bringing Shia and Sunni together in such a way is a bold initiative, we must pray for its success. It is another step to show that Islam is not a religion of terror as the media is fond of portraying.

    In the spirit of praying for peace

    Eric

    The meeting was actually a week or more ago. It saw it on my local Western news channel. One of those that aparrantly casts islam in a bad light.

    I was going to post the story here except that discussion of secterain issues is not allowed on this forum.

    Any time there is a sign of unity the people involved see hope and others state no no you will never be one! this will never work, you have no chance...

    thank you for your input...obviously you have an insight on the the matter better than the shias and sunnis involved...

    or perhaps its the fact that its better that sunnis and shias dont unite hell that would be scary huh!??

    all muslims as one!?

    indeed a scary thought..for evil-doers

    I'm reopening this thread on the condition that members stick to the topic. That means, no discussing anything except the story in the first post.
