 Al Haramain Watch Condemns the Arrest of Islamic Preacher Sheikh Omar al-Muqbel in Saudi Arabia


The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim Places ‘’ Al Haramain Watch’’ has condemned the arrest of the Saudi authorities by the Saudi Islamic preacher Sheikh Omar Abdullah Al-Muqbel, By the Saudi Authorities. Sheikh Al Muqbel  holds a master’s degree in the Prophet’s Sunnah, and works as a professor at the Faculty of Sharia at Qassim University. He was arrested for criticising the Saudi Entertainment Authority. In his sermon, Sheikh Omar Al – Muqbel said that the activities of the Entertainment Authority disqualify the society from its identity, and talked about the bad impact of the entertainment activities and that this country is the country of the Two Holy Mosques.

On the other hand, last year, Sheikh Nasser Al-Omar, a former university professor at the Faculty of Fundamentals of Religion at Imam Muhammad bin Saud Islamic University, was arrested by the Saudi regime. The Saudi authorities summoned him for interrogation earlier and closed his account on the social media Twitter after his tweets that talked about social transformations in Saudi Arabia and the refusal to be the political tongue of the government in front of citizens in Saudi Arabia and his opposition to prevent Saudi Arabia Muslims from Hajj.

Al Haramain Watch confirms that the Saudi regime is floundering and holding back those who refuse to support the decisions and positions of the Saudi political government from the preachers and many preachers have been arrested for the same reasons. Saudi Arabia continues to use Islamic platforms in the two holy mosques in Saudi Arabia in politics and spreading hatred against certain Islamic countries that do not conform to the policies of the Saudi foreign regime.
Al Haraman Watch demands the Saudi administration not to politicize Islamic platforms in the two holy mosques and demands the release of all preachers from Saudi prisons immediately, and calls on Islamic countries and governments to participate in the management of Islamic places in Saudi Arabia after the Saudi regime continued to use bad files of Islamic worship.

Al Haramain Watch aims to ensure that Saudi Arabia manages the two holy mosques and Islamic sites in a proper manner that preserves the past and the present image of Islam. The commission will apply this aim by advising Riyadh through an Islamic advisory board, engaging Muslim countries in managing the holy rituals, and stopping the obliteration of Islamic identity in Mecca and Medina, which is carried out by Saudi Arabia through the unlimited urban expansion that destroyed many of these sites and eliminated the Islamic presence in them. The commission will also prevent the Saudi Arabia singling out the decision over the holy rituals, which may affect the safety of pilgrims and Umrah. It also aims to prevent the unconvincing closure of rituals such as visiting dignitaries or celebrities or guests of Saudi Arabia. In addition, it will monitor any violation of Saudi Arabia to any pilgrim during his visit to the holy sites. Finally, it will ensure a fair distribution of Hajj and Umrah quotas on Muslim countries without any favouritism or mediation.

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch” is a global organization that monitors the ways and means of Saudi Arabia’s administration of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina, especially the Haramain, including the Islamic historical sites in the Kingdom. The Commission’s work is based on an Islamic reference, and is keen on the interests of Muslims from the ocean to the Gulf and all areas of Islamic presence.
