Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh warned officials and employees at all the borders outposts against betraying their country, reminding them of their great responsibility and the trust put in them to guard the Kingdom.

Addressing these officials, Al-Asheikh pointed out they must help their fellow citizens. “All of you officials guarding your posts, you should know that God has burdened you with this responsibility and the Almighty will hold you accountable if you betray this responsibility,” he said.

“You should never allow drugs to pass through the borders inside the Kingdom and you should guard the borders and extend a helping hand to your fellow Muslim citizens,” Al-Asheikh said, adding that suicide bombers are only a bunch of drugs addicts.

The Grand Mufti was speaking during the Friday sermon he delivered at the Imam Turki bin Abdullah Mosque in Riyadh, where he stated that anybody using drugs cannot be entrusted with the secrets of the nation.

He explained to worshipers that the enemies of Islam are making all efforts to corrupt the nation and its people, and to promote for the dubious drugs to destroy and damage the ethics of the citizens and their morale.

“King Salman bin Abdulaziz paid much attention and care to fight against drugs and arrest drug dealers to prevent them from inflicting harm and damage to citizens. That is why all special bodies are deployed in airports and borders,” the Grand Mufti stressed.

Regarding suicide bombers he further stated that they are not in their right mind and do not grasp what they are actually doing.

“No person with sound mind and thought would commit such acts. Those addicts have no understanding and their minds were stolen from them,” he added.
