(excerpts)
On March 7, 1998 the Board of Ulema of the Italian Muslim Association (AMI) issued the following fatwa against the "Nation of Islam." The English translation was rendered by Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi, Secretary-General of the Italian Muslim Association and Director of the Cultural Institute of the Italian Islamic Community.

Fatwa Against The Deviated 'Nation of Islam' and Farrakhan

"Regarding the "Nation of Islam", their official doctrine is that Allah appeared in the form of a human being named Fareed Muhammad, and that this "incarnation of God" chose another man, called Elijah Muhammad, as his Prophet. This is a clear contradiction of the Monotheistic faith (Tawhid), and of the Qur'anic teaching according to which Muhammad (blessings and peace upon him) is the Seal of the Prophets. That is enough to say that everyone who belongs to the "Nation of Islam" is not, ipso facto, a Muslim, but an unbeliever.
Muslims must declare this truth, and each one of them who keeps silent while listening to Mr. Farrakhan being called "a Muslim leader" is sinning."

Shaykh 'Ali Mo'allim Hussen, President
Board of Ulema' ( a body of Muslim scholars recognized as having specialist knowledge of Islamic sacred law and theology )
