Majlis Ulama Indonesia (MUI), Indonesian Ulama Council in its latest fatwa has urged Muslims in the country to avoid transactions and the use of products affiliated with Israel as much as possible.
Global Islamic Unity Forum (GIUF) strongly supports this fatwa issued by Majlis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) to resist Israeli brutality, thus upholding the principles of justice and human rights for Palestinians as the rightful residents of their homeland.
Fatwa division chairman, Asrorun Niam Sholeh, said in a statement that supporting Israeli aggression against Palestinians or parties who support Israel, either directly or indirectly, is considered ‘haram’ (forbidden/unlawful).
He also urged that the government take decisive steps to assist the Palestinian struggle through diplomatic efforts at the United Nations (UN), pressuring Israel to halt aggression and imposing sanctions.
The fatwa suggested that Muslims support the Palestinian cause through humanitarian fundraising, expressing solidarity, praying for victory, and performing absentee prayers for the martyrs in Palestine.
