First Black Saudi Appointed Imam of Haram Mosque in Mecca Accuses Shi’ites of Apostasy and Discusses Driving Jews and Christians Out of Arabian Peninsula; Claims His Appointment ‘More Significant’ than Obama’s Election

Following are excerpts from interviews with Sheikhh Adel Al-Kalbani, imam of the Al-Haram Mosque in Mecca, which aired on BBC Arabic on May 5, 2009 and Al-Arabiya TV on February 27, 2009.  BBC Arabic, May 5, 3009: To view this clip on MEMRI TV, visit http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/2102.htm.
On BBC Arabic: I View Shi’ite Religious Scholars as Apostates 

Interviewer: “Do you support those who accuse Shi’ites of apostasy?”

Sheikhh Adel Al-Kalbani: “With regard to the laymen among the Shi’ites – this is debatable. But their religious scholars – I view them as apostates.

Interviewer: All of them?”

Sheikhh Adel Al-Kalbani: “With regard to the religious scholars, yes.”

[…]

Interviewer: “Are you in favor of allowing religious liberties in general?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “For us, liberty has limits. Would you allow a mosque to be built in the Vatican?”

Interviewer: “Sheikh Adel, the Vatican is the center of the papal church, while the holy places in Saudi Arabia belong to Muslims of all sects and schools.”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “But in the Vatican, they do not allow [a church] to be built for the Protestants.”

[…]

Interviewer: “Where can Christians [pray]?”

“The Prophet’s Guidance… Dictates: ‘Drive The Jews And The Christians Out of the Arabian Peninsula’… They Should Be Allowed to Live Here Only If Their Presence is Essential”


Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “Christians are allowed to pray in their homes. We have no problem with them praying where they live. But for the bells to be sounded in the land of the Prophet Muhammad – that [runs counter] to the Prophet’s guidance. The Prophet’s guidance, by which we act, dictates: ‘Drive the Jews and the Christians out of the Arabian Peninsula.’ Driving them out is undoubtedly the prerogative of the ruler, but they should be allowed to live here only if their presence is essential.”

Interviewer: “But what you are saying runs counter to the interfaith dialogue, doesn’t it? On what basis does Saudi Arabia engage in interfaith dialogue with them? Is it just dialogue for the sake of dialogue? Isn’t it in order for everybody to get what they are entitled to?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “Yes, but within the limits of the shari’a. We are talking from the perspective of the shari’a, not from a personal perspective.”

[…]

Interviewer: “But don’t you agree that there should be a common denominator? The limits of the shari’a is the position of the Muslims, but not of the Christians who live in Saudi Arabia, right?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “[The Christian] came as a visitor. He is not a citizen. If he were a citizen… watchamacallit… a Christian citizen – maybe there would be room for debate. Maybe. But in principle, he is a visitor, a guest, who stays for some time, and then leaves. He knew these were the rules before he came here. No visitor to a country can demand that it change its rules.”

Interviewer: “Not to change the rules, but if you, as a Muslim, were to visit a country, wouldn’t you hope there would be a mosque in which to pray, regardless of whether you are a citizen or not?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “I would hope so. Undoubtedly. But Allah be praised, according to the Prophet’s guidance: ‘The whole Earth was made a mosque and pure for me.’ Therefore, a Muslim can pray anywhere.”

[…]

Interviewer: “You just accused Shi’ite religious scholars – not laymen – of apostasy. Some people may ask: If this is not fanaticism, what is?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “This is not fanaticism unless you mean being fanatic about my religion. In such a case, I cannot deny that I am a fanatic. My personal belief is that anyone who is aware of the status of Abu Bakr, yet curses him and draws closer to Allah by hating him, by warning against him, and by cursing him – I cannot call such a person a Muslim. With regard to the laymen, I can accept that they are either misled or ignorant, but someone who knows the status of Abu Bakr, yet accuses him of apostasy and denies that he was a companion of the Prophet – he is undoubtedly an apostate, even if he was a Sunni.” […]
Besides The Issue of Driving a Car, “There Is No Other Example of Women Lacking Rights In Saudi Arabia”

Interviewer: “Do you support demands made by women in Saudi Arabia for certain rights that the women feel they lack?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “Women indeed lack some rights, but not because of Islam or the rules. This is because of the implementation of these rights by their husbands or parents.”

Interviewer: “But don’t the state and the society impose their restrictions as well?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “I do not think that society imposes any restrictions on women. We have a woman who has become a deputy minister.”

Interviewer: “Are women capable of driving, or is this prevented by society?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “If all women’s rights are reduced to driving a car…”

Interviewer: “This is just an example, Sheikh Adel.”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “There is no other example of women lacking rights in Saudi Arabia. There are women clerks, women doctors, and women laborers. […]

“I had a lengthy discussion with Sheikh Ibn ‘Uthaymin about [Jihad]. We came to the conclusion that whoever kills himself is committing suicide, even if it is done for the sake of harming the enemy. The so-called ‘Jihad operations’ are, in fact, suicide operations. This is my opinion, and Allah will reckon with me about it. Such a person is committing suicide. Whether or not Allah forgives him is not up to me. My ruling is that such a person is committing suicide.”[…]

On Al-Arabiya TV: My Appointment as Imam of Al-Haram “Is More Significant Than the Election of Obama”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “I believe that my appointment to the position of imam [of the Haram Mosque] is much more significant.”

Interviewer: “More significant than the election of Obama?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “in other positions, there may have been [black] people in the past, but with regard to this position, my appointment was a courageous decision. I believe that it is more significant than the election of Obama.

Interviewer: In what sense?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “This is part of democracy, part of the world.”

Interviewer: “But more people elected him.”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “The Haram Mosque is the place of all Muslims.”

Interviewer: “The Haram Mosque?”

Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani: “Yes. This is more all-encompassing than the White House, which, as important as it may be, is restricted to the Americans.

  1. Wait a minute. Didn’t the christians drive the native americans and the aborigines out of their lands? What about our hero conquistadors and their kind treatment of south americans?

  2. Arash’s feeble attempt at tu quoque won’t wash.

    Native Americans did suffer under European imperialism but they were not ‘driven out’ ; I think the Navajo and the Quechua and the Aymara and the Guarani (Guarani, alongside Spanish, is the second official language of Paraguay) would be very surprised to hear him claim that they had been exterminated. Nobody among the Aztecs’ neighbours was sorry that the armed raids to catch victims for human sacrifices, had come to an end! (And the descendants of the Aztecs are still around, as are Mayans).

    Native Australians comprise 2 % of the Australian population, and have a higher birth rate today than the non-native Australians. They did have a very hard time after the English speakers arrived, with new diseases and guns; they *were* treated badly, very badly at times; but they were not driven out, and their numbers are increasing today.

    (Shall we ask Arash to explain what the Indonesian Muslims are doing to the native non-Muslim people of Papua? Oppression, murder and pillage, and wholesale dispossession and marginalisation.)

    Both native Australians and native Americans can appeal to the teachings of the Gospels and to the conscience of the Euro-derived majority, to achieve redress for past wrongs and to claim equality before the Law in the present day.

    When Europeans invaded the new lands their acts of greed and violence directly, flagrantly disobeyed and contradicted the teaching and example of Jesus; even at the height of the scramble for land and loot, angry Christian voices were raised in protest, on behalf of the Natives. By contrast, wherever Islam’s jihadis went they were strictly OBEYING the teachings of Islam and carefully FOLLOWING in every detail the example of Mohammed, when they invaded, pillaged, robbed, dispossessed, gang-raped, mass-enslaved and mass murdered the non-Muslim native peoples.

    Today the surviving Native Americans and Native Australians (whose numbers increase) intermarry freely with Euro-Americans and Euro-Australians; they can vote, and own property, enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of association, and can practise whatever religion they choose, or no religion. They are not permanently condemned to subordinate status; whereas non-Muslim minorities – and non-Arab Muslims – endure permanent sacralised contempt, trapped within the institutionalised near-slavery and religious apartheid that Islam imposes.

  3. Any Europeans who attacked and treated native peoples of the continent they arrived on, did it in spite of what the Bible teaches, there is nothing in scripture that commands Christians to do that.

    On the other hand, Islamic imperialism is done in obedience to the Qu’ran, because the whole world is supposed to belong to Muslims as Dar al-Islam.

    “Today the surviving Native Americans and Native Australians (whose numbers increase) intermarry freely with Euro-Americans and Euro-Australians; they can vote, and own property, enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of association, and can practise whatever religion they choose, or no religion”

    What a load of crock. Take away their land, their money. Rape their women. Unleash disases and wipe out hundreds of thousands of native americans. treat them like dirt. make them dirt poor. but you know what? they have the right to vote and practise their faith! haha. so they should be happy. what a bunch of nonsense. try explaining that to your native american friends. or try explaining your bull logic to black americans who are “free to vote and practise any religion”.

  5. revparadigm,

    “Any Europeans who attacked and treated native peoples of the continent they arrived on, did it in spite of what the Bible teaches, there is nothing in scripture that commands Christians to do that.

    Right. In the Quran published by sheikhyermami maybe. Islam never advocates aggression. It only asks to fight oppressors. Your puny brain is unable to process anything that is truthful, hence all the cock and bull stories about islam.

  6. Arash
    “‘islam never advocates aggression” Is this a joke?? How can anyone with a functioning brain write such a thing?? Islam IS AGGRESSION…it NEVER stops being AGGRESSIVE .

  7. theresa,

    “Islam IS AGGRESSION…it NEVER stops being AGGRESSIVE .”

    Blah blah blah.

  8. Right. In the Quran published by sheikhyermami maybe. Islam never advocates aggression. It only asks to fight oppressors. Your puny brain is unable to process anything that is truthful, hence all the cock and bull stories about islam.”

    Denial of what Muslims are doing now in aggressive acts all over the planet is a incredibly lame deflection and just doesn’t work anymore Arash. Muslims are causing wars all over the planet, just observe the daily news coming out of Africa, Philippines, India, Middle East, Europe…you guys riot and war over everything and anything. You terrorize over anything and everything . You can deny what the Qu’ran says about something until you hallucinate 72 virgins in your bedroom, but it doesn’t change the obvious that Muslims are using the Qu’ran to inspire & justify their aggression & violence.

    “It only asks to fight oppressors”

    More deceptive double speak. Because Muslims have a over developed sense of being a victim simply when someone resists submission. Then again someone lost in the utter deception of the Islamic ideology, I wouldn’t expect them to normally reason beyond the typical denials of how their own religion incorporates justification for immoral behavior. See when Christians are persecuted for sake of the Gospel, Jesus said turn the other cheek , pray for your enemies, shake the dust off your feet and move on. If they seek vengeance outside the established context of moral conduct established in the Bible and retaliate in spite of this , they are wrong. But to a Muslim? Jihad becomes the response against anybody who is perceived as a “oppressor”…which can mean anything from simply choosing their own beliefs or resisting Muslims attempting to subjugate them into submission by conversion or dhimmi status.

    “Your puny brain is unable to process anything that is truthful”

    Of course [to you] truth only exists within the context of Islam, which means Muslims are only ones speaking truth [to you], which means Muslims are justified in their behavior against anybody who resists Islam [to you]…therefore “terrorism” is not terrorism [to you]…it’s “fighting oppression” and “evil” to liberate “oppressed Muslims” from Jews & Christians “fighting” against Allah, according Muslim logic.
    Here is the main problem. Islam gives Muslims a moral compass that is all relative to the success of Islam & how Muslims are treated. If Islam is not dominate & Muslims are being handed everything on a silver platter in a non Islamic nation…you Muslims will whine & cry, terrorize, rape, murder, generally act like sub human barbarians until you get your way.

    Guess what?

    I’ll take every Qu’ran I can find and I will flush it, burn it, piss on it, spit on it, crap on it, laugh at it, ridicule it, mock it all I want. I will choose my own destiny and never submit.

  9. I meant…

    “If Islam is not dominate & Muslims are not being handed everything on a silver platter in a non Islamic nation…you Muslims will whine & cry, terrorize, rape, murder, generally act like sub human barbarians until you get your way.”

    Proof reading before posting is a good thing 🙂

  10. “Muslims are doing now in aggressive acts all over the planet ”

    Haha. Absurd logic yet again (why am I not surprised?!)

    Muslism dont follow the Quran properly at times, but think about what Christians and Jewish people are doing. There are so many prostitutes and hookers and “adult dating” sites all over the US. Did Jesus or Moses ask people to get a lapdance a day? Did Jesus say its ok for people to have premarital sex, and have multiple sexual partners? I don’t think so. There’s a lot of homosexuality in the US – I don’t think the Bible accepts homosexuality? You guys all accept torture although Jesus said “turn the other cheek.”

    In the same way, the Quran does NOT accept violence as a solution to anything. NO NO NO. Whatever your filthy mind would have you believe. Its NOT the truth, plain and simple.

    I NEVER said Islam is the only truth. Truth lies in all great faith systems including Christianity, Judaism, and the Eastern religions. But as muslims we believe that Islam is the right faith (just like Christians do). And just like Christians want the whole world to convert to Christianity, we want the entire world to become muslim. Through peaceful means, not through “inquisitions” or “extermination of aborigines” or through “racism.”

  11. “I’ll take every Qu’ran I can find and I will flush it, burn it, piss on it, spit on it, crap on it, laugh at it, ridicule it, mock it all I want. I will choose my own destiny and never submit.”

    And what do you think you stand to gain by doing something absurd like that? Maybe you don’t see it, but none of us “own” our own destiny. What belongs to us today may be gone tomorrow. Either your conscience is so completely calloused that you don’t have any remorse for your evil thoughts, or you will someday repent for wanting to mock someone else’s faith so relentlessly.

  12. Tidiane N’Daye’s “Le Genocide Voile” (the hidden genocide) says that Arash lies. Tidiane has devastatingly described 1200 years of Muslim invasion, colonisation, mass rape, castrations, removals and mass enslavement of black Africans. Arash lies.

    And the sixty to eighty MILLION Hindu and Buddhist Indians systematically murdered by invading Muslims, say that Arash lies.

    And the souls of one million Armenians murdered by Turkish Muslims, say that Arash lies, he lies abominably.

    I have read the Quran. It is an evil book, a book – as Robert Redeker put it – of enormous violence. Arash is lying, lying, lying: lying to protect Islam, lying to cover up the truth. And no matter how much he denies, and lies, and denies, the blood will keep on seeping through from underneath, the blood of Islam’s millions and millions of victims who were killed because they resisted being subjected to an amoral and vicious Arab or pseudo-Arab despotism.

  13. dumbledoresarmy,

    Ok so you’re suggesting that there are 1.2 billion people in the world who belong to a faith of “evil” …. and is also the fastest growing faith in the world.

    Thats very smart. Welcome to planet earth.

  14. Arash, you say “Ok so you’re suggesting that there are 1.2 billion people in the world who belong to a faith of “evil” …. and is also the fastest growing faith in the world.”

    I say, yes. The evidence says yes. History says yes. How many ‘yes’s’ do you need?

  15. I would much prefer to believe Arash and those interfaith Muslims, Christians and Jews who proclaim Islam’s peaceful nature.

    Unfortunately, I read widely about Islam and discovered the truth.
    Once you have the facts, based on evidence, it is dishonest to deny what Islam has in store for kaffirs, and has done since its inception.

  16. Cassandra,

    Well, if Islam is supposed to kill all kaffirs, how is it that the entire Indian subcontinent was able to maintain its hindu / buddhist religions? How come Spain which was ruled by muslims managed to maintain its christian identity?

    Why was it that the inquisition happened in Spain? Why did the holocaust happen in Germany? Which muslim king went about killing millions of jews? What about the Bosnian genocide when innocent muslims were killed by serb christians?
    God gave us the ability to think! Its not a sin to use your brains once in a while.

  17. Ok so you’re suggesting that there are 1.2 billion people in the world who belong to a faith of “evil” …. and is also the fastest growing faith in the world.

    “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
    Matthew 7:13-14

    Jesus agrees with your assessment of your religion, its a wide gate to destruction and many will go in through it.

    I NEVER said Islam is the only truth. Truth lies in all great faith systems including Christianity, Judaism, and the Eastern religions. But as muslims we believe that Islam is the right faith (just like Christians do). And just like Christians want the whole world to convert to Christianity, we want the entire world to become muslim. Through peaceful means, not through “inquisitions” or “extermination of aborigines” or through “racism.”

    Rofl, Christianity is racist? Unlike the Qu’ran which says about blacks…

    “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.”
    Surah 9:61

    The Bible says there is no such thing as “races”…entire humanity is of one blood…

    And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation…
    Acts 17:26

    The Bible has never made a emphasis on outward appearance…

    “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”
    1st Samuel 16:7

    And what do you think you stand to gain by doing something absurd like that? Maybe you don’t see it, but none of us “own” our own destiny. What belongs to us today may be gone tomorrow. Either your conscience is so completely calloused that you don’t have any remorse for your evil thoughts, or you will someday repent for wanting to mock someone else’s faith so relentlessly.

    Just as I thought. Typical Muslim in saying “but none of us “own” our own destiny”…because your religion teaches you that everyone is born a Muslim and has to submit to “allah”. The Bible makes no such claims, so your religion contradicts the Bible. The Bible says “choose whom this day who you will serve”…meaning God Almighty gave humans the right to choose their own destiny, which is one of the most basic human rights every person deserves to experience. God alone is the final judge of humanity concerning according to the Bible. See Islam is incompatible with the most basic concepts of freedom, when Muslims are in control the first thing that is done is remove choices for the people to choose whom they want to serve. You just cannot handle it when someone mocks Islam and refuses to submit…therefore Muslims respond with Jihad.

    Well, if Islam is supposed to kill all kaffirs, how is it that the entire Indian subcontinent was able to maintain its hindu / buddhist religions? How come Spain which was ruled by muslims managed to maintain its christian identity?

    Only because the Hindus resisted them and fought the invading Islamic armies to retain their faith. What a silly Muslim you are bringing up Spain. Muslim armies invaded from Africa to force it to become another little caliphate, but the Spaniards recaptured their land and drove the invaders back out…that is how their Christian faith survived in the face of Islamic tyranny. And to this day Muslims still think Spain is Islamic land just because prior imperialism forced their faith on it and still whine about traditions celebrating history when they retook their land from Muslims.

    What about the Bosnian genocide when innocent muslims were killed by serb christians?

    Nice try but the Bosnian genocide never happened. Those supposed “mass graves” just cannot seem to be found now. Islamic interests doped idiot Clinton into sending NATO forces to bomb the Serbian civilians on purpose. Those Bosnian Muslims have been lying deceivers for generations, in WW2 they made up entire divisions of Hitler’s Nazi SS…to this day the only “ethnic cleansing going on in the balkans is done by ethnic Muslims against the Serbs.

    http://www.amazon.com/Coming-Balkan-Caliphate-Threat-Radical/dp/0275995259

    Read the truth about those Muslims dirty little secrets in eastern Europe.

    God gave us the ability to think! Its not a sin to use your brains once in a while.

    If you were using your brain, you would have dumped that sick ideology of Islam long ago and opened your eyes to the sickness of it.

  18. Arash lies…….he does indeed but the biggest lie he is telling anyone , is the one he is telling himself. He is a member of a deadly cult….All cults keep people busy , teach mumbo jumbo and separate people out from non members.
    I hope you see the light Arash and become one of that ever growing group , the ex-muslims.
    For the record , muslims are currently involved in over 😯 wars.
    If this isn’t aggression , I don’t know what is.

  19. People become like the god’s they serve. Do you want to know what Allah is like? Observe his people. Murderers, liars, frauds, arrogant, oppressive etc etc etc. More reasonable religions call that sort of character ‘devilish’.

    A tree is known by it’s fruit.

    Arash, God is love.

  20. you people are blind. Indigenous people having the right to vote in so-called “democratic” elections is completely antithetical to their own culture, which was destroyed by the jews and christians (also jews) long ago. But I know, that you all don’t even realize that your own history is not just simply modified. Please take note, you might have learned some inaccuracies. Governments and corporations (which publish your books) have been known to lie about things. What things? All things. Take your pick.

  21. Arash,
    Instead of telling us how peaceful you are you should talk to your fellow co-religionists!!!
    TRY NIGERIA FOR A START!!!
    islam – for fools, rapists, and murderers — did I leave anyone out!!!

  22. Sylvia,
    And your point is??? I am quite sure that Jews have not destroyed any cultures in the last millenium. Christians behaved like muslims for a while but they grew up. Muslims are still raping children and the odd goat if it cannot run quickly enough. My, muslims really showed their true character in Nigeria yesterday. Never changes does it Sylvia – for the last 1400 years muslims have been behaving like pigs. Perhaps there is truth to the saying that you can’t change an old dog. Why is it the muslims seem completely unable to understand history. While we are on it Sylvia, have you spared a thought for the hundreds of Buddhists who have been murdered by muslims on a yearly basis in Thailand, the three nurses who were murdered by muslim scum in Yemen last year, the people attacked and maimed or killed by muslim mobs in the UK, the list goes on………
