The head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, Grand Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, condemned on Sunday the decision of the Egyptian court to classify Hamas as a terrorist organisation, the Palestinian newspaper Al-Resalah reported.

"Previously, Al-Qassam Brigades was blacklisted and today Hamas was blacklisted," Al-Qaradawi said.

Prominent Saudi scholar and member of the Union, Salman al-Awdah, responded to the verdict by commending Hamas, describing the movement as the "symbol of resistance" in the Arab world.

"Hamas is the symbol of national, guided and successful resistance," he said. "Hamas will not be harmed by those who fail it. It will be victorious, God willing."

Former Kuwaiti MP, Mubarak Al-Wa'lan, expressed his surprise over the court's decision. "If you are shameless, you can do whatever you want," he said, in reference to the Egyptian regime.

"It is ironic for [Abdul-Fattah] Al-Sisi's gang, which has killed children, women and scholars to describe Hamas a terrorist organisation," he said. "What a shameful decision!" he exclaimed.

Omar Issa, an activist from one of the Gulf States, said that, "such decision honours Hamas because the rulings of the coup judiciary are a witness of pride, glory and honour for certain people... This proves that Hamas is a real resistance movement."

Further, the poet and preacher Ahmed bin-Said praised Hamas, saying: "Allah and the universe, history and all ages witness that he [Al-Sisi] is a liar. Hamas is the symbol of transparency, and he [Al-Sisi] is the opposite and the symbol of terrorism."

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious." The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, "Do not become angry and furious." [Al-Bukhari; Vol. 8 No. 137]
