Joining Qaeda is 'haram': Al-Obeikan

By Abdullah Al-Oraifij

 

RIYADH, Adviser to the Royal Court Sheikh Abdul Mohsen Bin Nasser Al-Obeikan has said that "belonging to the so-called Al-Qaeda terrorist organization" is "haram", or prohibited in Islam.

 

Speaking to Okaz by telephone, Sheikh Al-Obeikan said that anyone who belonged to the organization belonged to "a group that has left the people of truth and taken up takfeeri thought" and that "affiliation to the Al-Qaeda organization is haram".

 

Al-Obeikan called on Saudi members of Al-Qaeda in Yemen to return to the Kingdom and hand themselves in to the authorities.

 

"The people of the Sunnah and Consensus have ruled that one must hear and obey and not come out against the leaders, or create strife, or legitimize the shedding of the blood of Muslims or the protected without any right to do so," the Sheikh said., Okaz/SG

Nice, but probably not enough. Most fair minded people already know what he said.

 

Unfortunately extremists will be extremists, regardless of religion. Every one has had them in the past and will in the future.

 

It could help the ignorant realize the main religions are not what the crazy extremists twist them into.

View PostI believe this is a good thing I would love to hear more of it from every country though.

 

Does it really need to be said more? You really dont think any fair minded person already knows that?

View Postal-qaeda today, whabbi tomorrow? Aside from Sharia, the Saudis are pretty much like us.

 

 

HUH?!!?

table the fact that Sharia dictates most aspects of their life,

don't they live in a Kingdom?

 

I'd say their differences are more vast than their similarities.

I was jesting, but the peoples are similar in a more profound way. World - views and the events that shaped them are dissimilar true. Inside, we love our kids. The western mind bears the ripened fruit of the Enlightenment whereas the Arabic world was less engaged by the barren European Enlightenment philosophies. We are seeing a reconstituted Ottoman empire in the making. Imperial legacies aside, Arabs hate us in the main for our values or lack of values. Their bigoted minds lead them to fight or cloak the west, rather than compete in the marketplace of ideas. Kind of like we do here in PG.

View PostIs this sort of like how the Vatican doesn't recognize those white supremacist Christians?

 

 

Most Baptist denominations do recognize one another. The only time baptist will not acknowledge each other is when visting a liquor store.
