A video of an Algerian imam and a cat climbing on his shoulders during the Tarawih prayer has gone viral on social media, garnering over 100,600,000 views within 48 hours. The video was sent from all over the world and even from different religions. It was also rebroadcast by Western media, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the American CNN and others.

As a result, the Algerian Ministry of Religious Affairs honored Imam Walid Mahass for his kindness in handling a cat that climbed onto his shoulder during prayer.

The Algerian Association of Muslim Scholars occupied Cat’s visual channels and roused sites worldwide.

And a video clip of the moment when the cat climbed on the shoulder of the Algerian imam and his attention during the prayer was widely circulated, so that he did not turn away from it or get angry, but treated it gently and gently.

Activists of all intellectual levels and religious persuasions celebrated the great resonance achieved by the spontaneous clip, emphasizing that it had a profound message.

With a simple, spontaneous movement, the clip flew from Algeria, between the sides of Chechnya in the east, to American positions in the west, according to prominent Egyptian activist Abdullah al-Sherif.

The Egyptian activist added: “Sheikh al-Tayyib spoiled the written texts, hired stars, sold out rehearsals and spent millions on free photography, free advertising and a cat.”

From honoring Imam Walid Mahzas

While some voiced that the video was ordinary and nothing interesting, others insisted that the imam’s behavior was a reflection of religion and faith.

Western media also circulated a video of Algerian imam Walid Mahzas with a cat. The views of the non-Muslims were beautiful and humane, reflecting the true picture of Islam’s tolerance, as some say.

Among those comments: “I don’t know what he’s saying, but he’s so cute. Oh my God, this sound took away my worries, what a happy moment.” Another said, “I feel comfortable listening to that prayer.” Another wrote, “A Christian, but I respect Islam a lot.” Another activist wrote, “I am Catholic, but I I admire Islam.” .

A cat sneaked into a mosque in Algeria on Tuesday evening and went directly to where its sheikh was leading participants in tarawih prayers, as we see in a video that quickly went viral on social media.

During the recitation of the verses of the Qur’an, the imam behaved affectionately, especially with the cat who was seen trying to cuddle him for a moment, then climbed onto his shoulder and nuzzled into his mouth. Her mouth then left him in a split second before he bent down.

Sheikh Walid Mahassas was born in Algeria and is the imam of the Abi Bakr Al-Siddiq Mosque on a 12-hectare site in Bourdge Bou Areridge state in eastern Algeria.

He has been classified as one of the most beautiful voices for reciting the Noble Qur’an, and he regularly conducts Qur’an evenings for memorizing and reciting the Qur’an in the “Barem Al-Biban” competition.
