Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh Speaks

"The Hajj sermon delivered by the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia... has raised interest levels among specialists because of its harsh condemnation of terrorism" — Grand Mufti condemns extremism and violence in sermon, experts discuss it.

"Experts note that the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has never been regarded as a progressive thinker" and "because he is rooted in Wahhabism, Islam’s most rigid and inflexible tradition, which is not very open to progress and change, his call for moderation and condemnation of extremism is of particular significance" and "has the potential of reaching the more radical intransigent elements in Muslim societies."
