Muslims Forbidden to
deliver Bin Laden: fatwa
|Cairo: Muslims are forbidden from delivering Osama Bin Laden to the U.S., not even in return for the fortunes of the whole world, professor of Islamic Jurisprudence at Al-Azhar University, Aly Gomaa, told IslamOnline in Cairo.
Gomaa said that according to Islamic legislation, it is "illegal" to deal with "accusations as if they were established facts, then act accordingly."
"Once a Muslim is proved guilty of committing a sin or a crime, the September 11 attacks for example, he should be tried, according to the solid evidence against him, before a Muslim judge," he explained.
"It is not legal [from an Islamic perspective] to try a Muslim before a non-Muslim judge or according to legislation other than that of Islam," he added.
Abdul Sattar Fathallah, also a professor at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, told IslamOnline that bin Laden is still only accused by the U.S., and no crimes have been proven against him.
"A defendant is innocent until proven guilty, right?" asked Fathallah adding, "So, it is not legal for any Muslim to help deliver him to the U.S. administration. It is against Islamic jurisprudence." q
