Declare war on deviant thoughts ‘to defeat foes of Islam’
Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh has called on preachers in the Kingdom to fight deviant thoughts and values that are not Islamic.
“This is in keeping with the significant role you play in contemporary Saudi society in view of various attempts to destabilize security and Islamic teachings and values,” Al-Asheikh said. He made the call during a meeting with preachers and workers in Badiah district.
Al-Asheikh said that guiding Muslims along the right path in accordance with correct teachings and values is part and parcel of their Islamic duties and responsibilities.
However, he said: “While you go about your task in disseminating Islamic thoughts, you’re at the same time expected to exercise tolerance to achieve the desired goals.” He urged preachers to be focused and exercise patience in the pursuit of what is right and proper, and to keep their links and associations with scholars.
