Saudi Grand Mufti calls for the destruction of all churches

saudi arabia flagRIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA (Worthy News)-- Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, recently declared that it is "necessary to destroy all the churches of the region."

As the President of the Supreme Council of Ulema and Chairman of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing of Fatwas, Abdullah's decisions on Islamic law are final.

Abdullah's recent ruling sanctioned the previous "suggestion" made by a Kuwaiti parliamentarian who called for the removal of all churches, although the Kuwaiti later said he merely meant that no new churches should be built in his Emirate.

However, the Grand Mufti explained that since Kuwait was a part of the Arabian Peninsula, "therefore it is necessary to destroy all churches in it."

Abdullah based his decision on the hadith declared by Mohammed on his deathbed: "There are not to be two religions in the (Arabian) Peninsula," which has always been understood to mean that only Islam will be practiced on the Peninsula.

  1. destruction of churches is a clear indication that there is a diffrence bettween Christian religion and muslim religion. My advice to the Christians there is that they should let Christ be seen in their lives as the temple of the most High God and hope in the good Lord for appropriate intervention.

  2. just one more sign, the end iand we as christianss need to gwet out and let people know about jesus and his soon return
