The second working paper presented by the Deputy State Mufti stressed on preserving the faith of the muslim ummah and avoiding from being influenced or deceived by deviant schools of thought, and it is vital for muslims to fully understand the foundation of the Ahli Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah belief.
Dato Seri Setia Dr. Haji Japar Bin Haji Mat Dain @ Maidin explained that with strong understanding and knowledge of the foundation or principles of the Ahli Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah, the muslim ummah will not be easily influenced and blindly following. Moreover nowadays, deviant understanding and thoughts will emerge with various Islamic names and slogans, hiding behind attractive slogans such as gaining large rewards from Allah the Almighty and achieving high piety or even with assertion that the teachings given are the true noble Islamic teachings. There are also some that hide behind the struggle to raise the value of human rights which is deemed vital in life today.
