When 9/11 attacks took place, Fethullah Gulen was one of the first Islamic scholar to step forward and unequivocally condemn such acts. Fethullah Gulen said:

Terror can never be used in the name of Islam or for the sake of any Islamic end. Acts such as random killing, suicide bombings and kidnapping are completely forbidden in Islam and can never be undertaken whatever circumstance condition. Those who kill one innocent person through such acts are considered in Islam to have killed the whole humankind. A terrorist can not be a Muslim and a Muslim can not be terrorist. A Muslim can only be representative as a symbol of peace, well-being and prosperity.
