Oman Grand Mufti:
Navideshahed: The divine nature of Islam makes it the only religion that offers genuine solutions to the existing problems, Sheikh Ahmad bin Hamad Al Khalili, the Grand Mufti of the Sultanate of Oman, has said.

“Let it be financial crisis or social unrest, Islam and the Holy Book Quran have solutions to resolve the issues. Even the Western thinkers and philosophers have now started to agree on this,”? the Grand Mufti told media on the sidelines of the inaugural meeting arranged by Kerala Islamic Association (KIA) to award the Holy Quran quiz winners.

“The world is plagued by all sorts of problems like social unrest, political instability, mass poverty and destitution. Many of today’s problems derive from the fact that the world in which we live is rapidly becoming one world. Mankind must learn to live close together in intimate contact with each other.

In other words, they must become a true brotherhood. This requires many adjustments,”? the Grand Mufti said, highlighting the importance of universal brotherhood.

“Islam makes all mankind one great brotherhood and exhorts all of us to seek and win the pleasure of the Almighty through righteousness of our conduct towards each other. Thus, Islam bases itself upon a fundamental unity — the unity of God, the unity of the universe, the unity of man and the unity of life.

The object of Islam is to establish a balance between all aspects of human activity and to bring about beneficent accord through adjustment,”? he said.

The Grand Mufti also stressed the importance of Islamic banking and said that following it can resolve the current economic problems.

Code of life

“Islam is not only a religion, but also a complete code of life,”? he said, adding that in the international sphere, economic development should be promoted through beneficent co-operation between different peoples, rather than through the exploitation of the resources of one people by another.

Talking on the increase in the use of social networking sites by the youth, the Grand Mufti said: “We can’t blindly oppose the use of social networking sites.

“Social networking sites are like double-edged swords. It should be handled carefully, otherwise we will get hurt. We should use these websites for our benefit and not the other way. Moreover, parents should keep a tab on their children so that they do not fall into the traps of the social networking sites.”?
