Latest modifications introduced to the new Saudi religion following Trump’s visit

Former Director of the Mecca-based Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) also referred to as  “the religious police” Ahmad al-Ghamedi said  that arts, including music, elevate the moral ethics of the human person and  those  who have called for the prohibition of  music  should re-think their stances. Music, he added,   refines and purifies the soul and  improves both  the aesthetic taste and the moral ethics of the individual. To elucidate, he cited  how camels get thrilled and joyfully walk faster  when their shepherds sing  for them. He, thereby, deemed as wrong all the previous edicts and rulings which confiscated the true God-given human nature.

The Saudi General Authority for Entertainment approved the holding of  two additional concerts  by the famous  world-class Pianist “Yanni” based on the landslide success his  concerts  previously held in Jeddah have scored.  Shows and concerts by world-fame Stars  would continue to be held more often in the land of Hijaz.

A member of the Saudi Council of Religious Scholars has issued an edict saying that it is permissible for Muslims to pray in the shrines and the worshipping places of other Heavenly religions. It is also permissible for the Christians to enter into mosques and pray in them, he added. Not to miss the prayer as the time for it has approached, the Second Caliph Omar bin al-Khattab, he said,  was about to enter into the Church of the Sepulcher in al-Quds (Jerusalem) to pray there. He did not do so for fear that Muslims might misuse such a precedent  and  irritate Christians be regularly praying in their own churches. Therefore, he drew a line on the ground, designating thereby a praying ground.

On this specific place,  the Mosque named after him “Omar bin al-Khattab Mosque” was  built  just a few meters away from the Church of the Sepulcher.   The Prophet Mohammad  has hosted Christians in the Mosque and when their time for prayers has come he invited them to pray in the mosque, he added.

The Secretary General of the Senior Scholars  Authority Dr. Fahed al-Majed denied there was any religious edict  issued by the Authority prohibiting Saudi women from driving. The Saudi Iftaa Website deleted all  previous  edicts, which blasted  car driving by women as an “aberrant behavior”.

The Saudi Preacher Ahmad al-Ghamedi said that the Hijab is not a compulsory order for all women to obey or observe. It has been rather exclusively meant for the Prophet’s  wives, stressing that this how the majority of Islamic scholars agree upon and this  what the Prophet’s Companions observed and practiced. The Kuwaiti “al Anbaa”  newspaper  quoted al-Ghamedi as saying that there is nothing wrong for the women to unveil their  faces, even if they opted to wear make-up. Women many also post their photos on social media, he reportedly said. And a man is permissible to look at the face of a woman and socialize with in festivities,  work-places and universities. Women, he added, are not  responsible as to how men may behave nor whether or not they might get enchanted with their beauty. Such an attitude is the sole responsibility of the man himself.

The ruling authorities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia  arrested the religious preacher Mohammad Saleh al-Munajjed, who promoted as edict saying that “Mickey Mouse”  should be killed because this cartoon mouse is a soldier of Satan.

The Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman stated that Saudi Arabia will restore its moderate version of Islam, which is open to other religions, traditions and cultures and maintained that the Saudis want to lead a normal  life in line with the principles of  tolerant  Islam, good customs and traditions and peaceful co-existence with the world to contribute to the development of the Kingdom and the world.

Saudi Sharia scholars said: It is a matter of course that the rulings derived from religious scriptures and promulgated as such are variable according to the time and the place. Hence,  we might have a ruling prohibiting something in one certain historical period, but with the evolution of so many other interests and circumstances,  the religious scholar should  re-think and improvise these edicts. What the “Shepherd” doe for his subjects should be decided in view of the common interest of the public. Consequently, the  sovereign  would opt only the best, the most beneficial and the right decisions to make.
