â€œMuslim Code of Honorâ€ signed by Sunni & Shiâ€™a Imams at Islamic House of Wisdom TMO Staff Reporter Farmington–May 15–Michiganâ€™s imams flew in the face of the idea of centuries of conflict between Sunni and Shiâ€™a by signing a â€œMuslim Code of Honorâ€ that outlines and promises respectful mutual treatment by all signatories. The impetus for the agreement was, in Imam Elahiâ€™s words, that â€œMuslims regardless of their school of thought are targets of nonstop Islamophobic prejudice. The fear that the daily tragic news from Iraq may ignite clashes of opinions urgently requires responsible engagement by the highest Islamic leaders. Therefore 28 of Michiganâ€™s powerful imams and organization leaders signed this document, which specifies among other agreements that â€œMuslims should respect one another and the people, places and events that any Muslim group or individual holds in esteem.â€ Please see the Code of Honor. 9-21 May 17, 2007 by TMO 0 comments 137 viewson *The Muslim Observer, 9-21, International, Issue, MMN News Services, MMNS Share this post Facebook Twitter Google plus Pinterest Linkedin Mail this article Print this article Next: CIA Factbook: USA the Poorest of all the World’s Countries Previous: Democracy in the Balkans?
