*NATIONAL FATWA COUNCIL: Swearing should take place after legal process


* Don't make swearing 'a trend'

Najib had been quoted as having sworn several times on the issue of Altantuya the Mongolian murdered and blasted with C4 explosive during the last fasting month.

Tajol Rosli was also quoted as saying that he would swear as many times as Nizar wanted on graft charges Perak Excos.

KUALA TERENGGANU (Aug 26, 2008) : The National Fatwa Council is of the opinion that Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan should have sworn the Islamic way that he was sodomised by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim only after the legal process has taken place.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the "sumpah mubahalah" (swearing in the name of Allah) should involve both parties, the accused and the accuser, and not necessarily be done in a mosque.

He said the views put forward by various ulama on the swearing by Anwar's former aide, had confused the public and should thus serve as a lesson for all concerned in dealing with such an issue in future.

"We (National Fatwa Council) feel that after the legal process has taken place, any of the parties who feels he had been violated or victimised could resort to 'muhabalah' involving both parties."

Ahmad Zahid was met by reporters after chairing a special meeting with the National Fatwa (Islamic Edict) Council's committee at Wisma Darul Iman here today.

He said the council was not siding with any individual in making the decision but wanted to uphold truth in accordance with Islamic principles.

"Islamic law is fair, so the people should not worry whether the case should be resolved through the legal process in court or outside court through 'sumpah mubahalah' which should involve both parties but not necessarily at the same place."

He also advised the people not to politicise or manipulate the issue as it must be referred to the ulama or religious texts as guidelines.

Asked whether the oath taken by Mohd Saiful was valid, he said what the youth had done was to clear his name and image.

He said the council also opined that holding the Quran when taking the oath in the mosque by Mohd Saiful was a technical matter which should not be disputed.

Ahmad Zahid also advised Muslims in the country not to simply resort to "sumpah mubahalah" including over small matters, as this must not be a trend.

"Go through the legal process first. Anyway, it there are too many of such swearing, it would lose its value and people will no longer believe in it," he added.

KUALA TERENGGANU: Do not make a trend of swearing in God's name or on the Quran as this would only serve to degrade its value, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid, however, added that swearing on the Quran and in God's name had yet to become a trend.

The minister said this after attending a meeting with the National Fatwa Council here yesterday

On Saturday, Perak Umno liaison committee chairman Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali swore in the name of God that he was not involved in any political conspiracy or plan that had resulted in the arrest of two Pakatan Rakyat state executive councilors for alleged corruption.

Tajol Rosli was also quoted as saying that he would swear as many times as Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin of Pas wanted.
