In the name of Allah the Most Merciful
The General Secretariat issued a statement about the crime of bombing of "God's prophet Yunus
Mosque" in the city of Mosul, the following is the English text of the statement :
Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, companions and allies:
In a very dangerous precedent, it has been happened hours before the bombing of "God's prophet Yunus Mosque", including of copies of the Noble Qur'an and collectibles, where improvised explosive devices made it destroyed completely, and in the time that differed news recieved from the city of Mosul about who was behind the bombing; the Association of Muslim Scholars condemns this act by the strongest words of condemnation, and sees it as a boldness on Allah Almighty, the actors will not escape from the warning contained in the Verse: [and who are more unjust than those who forbid that Allah's Name be glorified and mentioned much in Allah's mosques, and strive for their ruin ? It was not fitting that such should themselves enter them only scared them (Allah's mosques) except in fear. For them there is disgrace in this world, and they will have a great torment in the Hereafter.] Surah Al-Baqarah Verse 114. As well as, this act has a great harm to the rights of the inhabitants of the city of Mosul, who see in this holy mosque a milestone in their city and part of their culture and history.
Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.
