You have the right to do whatever you want, and I have the right to object to what you do, if I have the right to object to you, and there is no authority over you except God as long as I do not have the right to do so, but if it is about a man who stood as an imam for millions of Muslims one day in the most honorable parts of the earth Inside the Great Mosque of Mecca, it is the right of every unified Muslim on this earth to understand what happened, especially if something happened from this imam that is “strange and may shock a large segment of society. So what happened with Sheik Adel al-Kalbani, the imam of the Meccan sanctuary at one time?
? Who is Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani
Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani is considered one of the most distinguished voices in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He assumed the leadership of a number of mosques in Riyadh, the most prominent of which was the King Khalid bin Abdulaziz Mosque for a period of twenty-five years. On the 4th of Ramadan 1429, he was assigned to lead Taraweeh prayers in the Great Mosque of Mecca by a royal decree, and he was exempted From the leadership in the Great Mosque of Mecca after the end of his mandate to lead the worshipers during the month of Ramadan.
Controversial religious fatwas
Although Sheik Adel Al-Kalbani does not work in the field of advocacy or fatwas, he stated in one of the media about the fatwa analyzing singing and musical instruments, adding that there is no evidence forbidding it, which formed a campaign against him by many Saudi preachers, most notably the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, and Sheik Saleh Al-Luhaidan even Sheik Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, the imam and preacher of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, demanded “the application of the stone to him,” while Sheik Saud Al-Shuraim, the imam and preacher of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, wrote a “poem of reproach” because of this fatwa.
How scientists responded to him in the analysis of singing.
Sheikh Al-Sudaisi demanded in front of the former Grand Mosque in Mecca that the stone be applied to him, as Sheikh Saleh Al-Luhaidan, the former head of the Supreme Judicial Council and a member of the Council of Senior Scholars said that Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani should stay in his mosque, lead the worshipers and read the Qur’an, and he has nothing to do with fatwa issues, in response to a question about His eminence’s opinion of what Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani said is that singing is permissible and that there is no evidence in the Qur’an and Sunnah that it is forbidden to sing.
He marveled at the audacity of Al-Kalbani to release the permissibility of singing to his ignorance of the principles of jurisprudence and the methods of legal reasoning, and that Al-Kalbani was a reciter and had nothing to do with the fatwa from near or far, and accordingly he was not absolved by the statements of those who permitted singing without legal evidence, and they use some sheikhs topromote their opinions.
Did the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ receive female musicians in his house?
In one of his strange claims, Sheikh Al-Kalbani claimed that the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, received female singers to sing in front of his wife. He said: "This is Qina - an artist and singer of our time - Bani So-and-so. Would you like her to sing for you?" She said, "Yes." So he gave her a plate and she sang.
Dr. Ahmed Mahmoud Karima, professor of Islamic law at Al-Azhar University, responded to him, saying that the most feared thing for the religion is what our master Othman bin Affan, may God be pleased with him, said: “A man who knows the Qur’an is sharp-tongued,” and what our master Ibn Omar, may God be pleased with him, said about the Kharijites. He said: “Go to verses in the Book of God that were revealed about non-Muslims, and then apply them to Muslims.”
Dr. Karima continued, saying: What calls for strangeness and disgrace is that a man attributed to knowledge utters in the Holy of Holies, Makkah Al-Mukarramah, and lies about the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, and he said: “Whoever lies about me deliberately, let him take his seat in the Fire.” God is a false lie that is contempt for the Islamic religion, and endangers the reputation of the religion, and the correct one is in the narration of Aisha, may God be pleased with her, she said: “The Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, entered upon me and I had two maidservants who sang Bath's singing, so he turned his face and lay down, then Abu Bakr, may God be pleased with him, entered, and said “The flute of Satan is with the Messenger of God.” The Prophet said: “O Abu Bakr, support it, for every people has a festival.” She said: “So he slept next to the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, and when he forgot, I dipped it and they went out.”
He pointed out that this hadith in al-Bukhari indicates that the Messenger found two maid servants who were under the age of puberty, and he did not attend them as the Wahhabi Salafist denies, and they were singing with the poetry of enthusiasm, and Abu Bakr, her father denied that, except that the Messenger of God for the young age of Aisha and the age of the two maidservants and for the poetry of enthusiasm and approval of the day Eid, licenses contrary to the original, and this is the meaning of the hadith of the Prophet, but some of those who are considered to be knowledgeable say otherwise.
In front of the campus appears in a "virtual" game
A few days ago, the appearance of Sheikh Adel Al-Kalbani, the former imam of the Grand Mosque, with a promotional announcement for the Riyadh season, whose activities continue in the Saudi capital. Which sparked widespread controversy on social networking sites in the Kingdom, and was even a cause for ridicule and laughter from a man who stood as an imam in the purest spot on earth for millions of Muslims, and this event contains a number of games dedicated to simulating shooting with techniques inspired by real weapons training practices. In addition to Al-Kalbani, some football stars and artists appeared, such as Muhammad Al-Deayea, Saeed Al-Owairan, Khaled Abdel Rahman and astronomy expert Khaled Al-Zaqaq.
Al-Azhar's opinion on virtual games
The Dar Al-Iftaa had permitted virtual games except for those games that help spread hatred and violence or that lead to self-harm, including the game Fort Knights after repeated incidents of hate, violence, murder and suicide because of it. The Fatwa confirmed that it contained an embodiment of the demolition of the Kaaba; In order to obtain in-game privileges; Which directly affects our children's beliefs negatively, and confuses their concepts and identity,
Al-Azhar International Center for Electronic Fatwa warned against the PUB game, which revolves around electronic battles, and the like, and considered it a danger to public awareness; Because it poses a threat to the lives of children, as well as the blue whale game,
No one can judge the actions of anyone, no matter what, but how can the venerable reader of the Qur’an while he is the Imam of the Sanctuary appear in virtual games, is modesty gone forever, the matter is not related to religion or whether the matter is permissible or forbidden, but rather the world has its prestige that is not He deviates from it at any cost, and if he did that in front of the Great Mosque of Mecca, how could we be an example among our scholars? Perhaps this is the truth of the hadeeth of the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, and the approach of the fourth trial, which he told us about, Will afflict Muslims at the end of time. He said:
Time approaches, work decreases, scarcity is encountered, temptation appears, and turmoil abounds. They said, O Messenger of God, what is he? . . . And on the authority of Abu Hurairah, may God be pleased with him, that the Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Hasten with actions, trials are like cutting the dark knight.
