Shaikh Sudais on moderation
The papers are reporting that the topic of the sermon in the Haram this Eid was moderation. The Guardian reported (hat tip: al-Muhajabah) that Shaikh Sudais, the state-appointed khateeb, gave a speech condemning militancy:
“Because Muslims have strayed from moderation, we are now suffering from this dangerous phenomenon of branding people infidels and inciting Muslims to rise against their leaders to cause instability,” he said.
Doesn’t the shaikh realise that this militancy has its roots in the rebellion of the Najdis, under the leadership of earlier Saudis and the influence of Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab, against the last Khilafah at a time when it was itself under threat from European colonialists?
