recently i got a letter from a sister. it holds an article supposedly written by the previous secretary general of OIC H E Abdelouahed Belkeziz. The article contains a blatant lie saying that some of Islamic custom had stemmed up from biblical sources . some of them are the hijab , beard , circumcision and even the zakah !!!!
The article also says that these customs u cant find in quran , they are only existent in bible which is not true in the case of hijab and the zakah obviously. and the beard and circumcision came in authentic hadith of the beloved prophet (sa) as per my knowledge. but the article purposefully didnt even mention of the sunnah or hadith as being a strong source of Islamic jurisprudence.
i cant believe that an honourable secretary general of the renowned Islamic body can make such blunders. Even a layman like me can tell how wrong it is .
i believe its a letter falsely attributed to him . Can any brother or sister shed some light on this ??
the article claimed to be a speech made by him on the 10th session of the Islamic summit conference in putrajaya , Malaysia
