Fahd bin Saad Al-Majeed, Secretary General of the Council of Senior Scholars, said: “The authority is proud of the royal trust chosen for its members to deliver the Arafa Sermon; The Kingdom’s Grand Mufti, Chairman of the Council of Senior Scholars, Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Sheikh, was the pastor of Arafa for more than thirty years, and was later succeeded by several members of the Council; Sheikh Abdullah Bin Maneya, Sheikh Saad Bin Nasser Al-Shadri, Sheikh Muhammad Bin Hassan Al Sheikh and Sheikh Bandar Bin Abdulaziz Balila were so honored.
He added: During the Hajj in the year 1443 AH, I had the honor of delivering an excellent sermon, and this royal trust was joined by Sheikh Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Isa, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars. The Council of Senior Scholars from 1430 AH and he and his colleagues, under the leadership of the Grand Mufti, played a major role in issuing many decisions and reports of the Council of Senior Scholars of public concern clarifying the Islamic religion. Elucidates its lofty aims, preserves national unity, and brings together the word around the rulers of the subject, may God support them; For example, during the so-called “Arab Spring”, they issued that famous decision aimed at destabilizing Arab countries and undermining their institutions. At that time, the Council of Senior Scholars took a firm stand based on the book. The Sunnah of God and His Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him.
Al-Majeed emphasized that the decisions and reports of the Council of Senior Scholars, which determine the public interest, protect the objectives of the Sharia and protect the nation’s gains, continue and that by the grace of God we have renewed the trust in the state. Members of the Commission annually accept Arafat’s sermon. (SPA)
