In an interview with Tony Khalife on Al-Kahera Wal Nas TV channel on Sunday evening, Sheikh Mohamed Abdallah Nasr, known as Sheikh Mizo, said that faith does not mean believing, but rather searching for the truth.
"Tony Khalife and all other Christians, Jews and even Zoroastrians will all go to paradise,” he said. “God says so in the Quran.”
“You may not believe in Prophet Mohamed and Jesus and still go to paradise,” he added.
He said the Islamic wrong has been wrong about this issue for 1400 years. “There is no text in the Quran that says Christians and Jews must pay a tribute,” he noted.
He also said that the curricula taught by al-Azhar teaches are the same as those used by ISIS, as both call for killing apostates and stoning women. “And both consider Jews and Christians as infidels,” he said.
