What people say?


Although the authority of the fatwa’s author, Qadri, is widely recognized, the inherent value and appeal of the fatwa becomes clear with a review of its content, which appear to be the credible work of an erudite Islamic scholar and inherently convincing. This content is carefully researched and based on wisely selected and interpreted Islamic sources. These are presented clearly and accessibly in good English with convincing arguments. For these reasons, given the credibility of the author the abundance of well-researched and selected Islamic sources presented in the fatwa, and the clarity and accessibility of the presentation in good English, the fatwa may be considered a major reference work to be drawn upon for a good understanding of Islam and its abhorrence of terror done in the name of Islam.
