    Saudi Arabia: Top Scholar Calls Al Qaeda Membership Un-Islamic
    January 12, 2010 1709 GMT
    A senior Saudi cleric declared that joining al Qaeda is forbidden by Islam, Middle East Online reported Jan. 12. Speaking to the Okaz newspaper, Sheikh Abdul Mohsen al-Obeikan, a leading religious scholar and adviser in King Abdullah's court, reiterated the official Saudi stance that al Qaeda's philosophy is one of "takfirism," or accusing others of apostasy. "Takfir thinking" is forbidden in Islam, he said.

    :lol:

    A Wahhabi calling someone else a takfiri? That's deliciously hypocritical. May they all be guided to the straight path, Insha'Allah.
