‘True Islam and its Role in Modern Society’27-29 I Jumada 1426 H./4-6 July 2005 C.E.  

Statement issued by the International Islamic Conference held in Amman, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

“1) Whosoever is an adherent of one of the four Sunni Schools of Jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi‘i and Hanbali), the Ja‘fari (Shi‘i) School of Jurisprudence, the Zaydi School of Jurisprudence, the Ibadi School of Jurisprudence, or the Thahiri School of Jurisprudence is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible. Verily his (or her) blood, honour, and property are sacrosanct. Moreover, in accordance with what appeared in the fatwa of the Honourable and Respectable Shaykh al-Azhar, it is not possible to declare whosoever subscribes to the Ash‘ari creed or whoever practices true Sufism an apostate. Likewise, it is not possible to declare whosoever subscribes to true Salafi thought an apostate. Equally, it is not possible to declare as apostates any group of Muslims who believes in Allah the Mighty and Sublime and His Messenger (may Peace and Blessings be upon him) and the pillars of faith, and respects the pillars of Islam and does not deny any necessary article of religion. “

THIS WAS AMMAN MESSAGE’S FIRST STATEMENT WHICH PROVEs THAT SHIA’S ARE MUSLIM. ALL MUSLIM SECTS ACCEPT THEM AS MUSLIMS NOT APOSTATES AND THE FATWA OF TAKFEER DO NOT APPLY ON SHIA SECT OF ISLAM.
