Article full text: 

In his "A message from an unknown woman," Mr. Ibrahim Sa’ada was able to shed light upon the corruptions of the religious extremists who consider themselves above the Azhar religious authorities [the experts whose views are taken as definitive], although they [extremists] know nothing about religion. They believe that they are right while they are wrong. They are those whom the Qur’an described, "Those whose efforts goeth astray in the life of the world, and yet they reckon that they do good work" [Sura 18:104]. Such people deform religion and give a wrong image of it.

The extremist man in Sa’ada’s message spoils the life of his wife and children and causes them to have an aversion to religion. This extremist does not realize that by his behavior he may lead his children to apostasy.

In addition, Mr. Sa’ada succeeded in shedding light on the fact that both education and media institutions and not only the religious institutions are responsible for explaining the reality of the teachings of Islam, in which extremism is unknown. The Qur’an says, "Thus We have appointed you a middle nation..." [Sura 2:143].
