Islamic affairs minister publishes new book on security

Minister of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance Dr. Abdullah Ibn Abdulmohsen Al-Turki has published a new book under the title "Security in Islam and the Implementation of Islamic Criminal Policy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia", in which he states that fear of Almighty God is the way to ensure security in this world and salvation in the next, pointing out that security is an essential pillar for the development of society, and attributing the stability that prevails in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the implementation of Islamic Shariah. The book sheds light on the concept of security in the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah (the teachings of the Prophet) and in the Muslim society as well as covering comprehensive security, and that of non-Muslims in Islamic states.
