MAB recognises Qaradawi as a respected, knowledgeable scholar of Islam. Qaradawi has contributed positively to the modern Islamic discourse in many ways.
In Islam, everyone may make sound or incorrect judgments or fatwas. No one’s words are binding on Muslims, except that of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, on whom be peace.
If a scholar makes an error in his judgment or opinion, this definitely does not mean that he/she should be alienated or disrespected.
