(IraqiNews.com) On Thursday, Egypt’s Sunni Islamic Institute, Al-Azhar denied it said the ISIS group militants are infidels, adding that Muslim scholars should not deny someone’s faith based on their sins.

Egypt’s Sunni Islamic Institute – Al-Azhar – said in a statement published by ‘Arabiya Net,’ “Mufti of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim Saleh, had not said that the ISIS group militants are infidels, but rather only described the actions made by the group as barbaric as well as far from the faith and true people of Islam.”

Al-Azhar Grand Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb stressed, that Muslim scholars should not judge a person nor decree, that he is not a Muslim when that person is showing the essence of the faith – no matter how many sins they have made.
