No Such Thing As “Honor” Killing In Islam

There are reports of an alleged “honor” killing in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Whatever the case, I can not stress enough that there is no such thing as an “honor killing” in Islam and this is horrific crime that absolutely needs to end. There is a place for compassion and understanding in Islam and these practices are cultural ignorance.

  1. ERS Says:

    Dishonor killings are believed to have their origins in misinterpretations of pre-Islamic Arab tribal codes. They pre-date Islam by centuries and, in fact, are un-Islamic.

    Nonetheless, to one with experience in these matters, it is obvious the murders of the beautiful Said sisters in suburban Dallas were dishonor killings.
