Fatwa: Only Allah Decides Whether One Goes To Heaven Or Hell

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 19 (Bernama) -- The claim that one must give his or her pledge and support to a certain individual, organisation or political party before he or she can go to heaven is wrong according to Islamic teachings, said the Chairman of the National Fatwa (Edict) Muzakarah Committee, Prof Datuk Abdul Shukor Husin.

He said this was because the decision of the National Fatwa Muzakarah Committee had stipulated that only Allah had the absolute power to determine whether one would go to heaven or hell based on his or her faith and devotion.

He said the Conference of Rulers had given its consent to the decision at the 188th Meeting of the Conference of Rulers in March 2001, adding that the National Fatwa Council had discussed the issue since 2000.

"The National Fatwa Muzakarah Committee is also of the opinion that whoever teaches or preaches such an ideology is wrong and deviating from the actual Islamic teachings," he said in a statement, here Wednesday.

He was commenting on the statement by PAS spiritual leader, Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, two days ago that Muslims who separated "iman" (faith) from Islam would not go to heaven, adding that the two were inseparable, just like the body and soul, and that they must be together or one.

"As such, I wish to advise Muslims, especially those who have knowledge on Islam to be wary and not create things which are incorrect or heretical that can confuse and divide the Muslims.

"Don't be easily influenced by opinions that are bizarre, far from the truth and can deviate us," he said. -- BERNAMA
