Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah had reminded Muslims in the state to be wary of deviant teachings that could disrupt the harmony.
He said they should lodge reports on deviant teachings as these teachings could be difficult to contain.
“Deviant teachings can confuse Muslims and distort their faith, leading to disunity and disputes among them and earn them the disrespect of other communities,” he said when opening the Ar-Ridhuan Mosque in Simpang Empat, Jeram, here.
The sultan said the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) should ensure that those who spoke on Islam held recognised credentials and adhered to guidelines.
Jais should also monitor all activities at mosques and surau so as to be able to nip deviant teachings in the bud, he said.
“I wish to remind all mosque officials and Muslims in the state to monitor those trying to spread deviant teachings.
“Complaints can be registered with the mosque officials or committees to be forwarded to Jais,” he said.
The sultan advised Muslims in the state to make use of mosques and surau as places to foster goodwill in the society. –Bernama
