Islamic preacher and cleric
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has witnessed an excessive expansion of arrests since the arrival of Muhammad bin Salman to the mandate of the Covenant, and these arrests did not only extend to opponents of the regime, but also extended to its supporters, and also included religious scholars, liberal advocates and human rights activists.
The alleged reason for arrest:
- He was accused of financing terrorist organizations, but it is known from the preacher that he is demanding the commitment of the official fatwas of the country prohibiting excessive mixing, which occurred after the recent decisions of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and he was previously arrested in 2013.
- His arrest was part of a campaign launched by the Saudi authorities since the beginning of September 2017, targeting several preachers and elders affiliated with the reformist movement in Saudi Arabia.
