SAUDI DARUL KUFR BANNING LOUDSPEAKER ATHAAN
The Ministry of the so-called ‘Islamic’ Affairs of the Saudi Darul Kufr has ordered that loudspeakers be restricted to only the Athaan and Iqaamat. Furthermore, the volume will now be drastically reduced to “one third level”.
The announcement does not clarify if loudspeakers are totally prohibited for Salaat and Khutbah or will these devices still be used inside the Musaajid for Salaat and Khutbah albeit at drastically reduced levels.
Since about a century ago, there has been consensus of our Ulama of Deoband on the prohibition of using loudspeakers for Salaat and
Khutbah. But the Saudi view was the opposite. What has now constrained Darul Kufr to abide by the Fatwa of Deoband?
While the Fatwa of our Ulama is based on solid Shar’i daleel, the order of the Najdi regime is motivated by the desire to appease the
western kuffaar tourists. Since in the understanding of the kuffaar regime the Athaan disturbs the kufr palates of the kuffaar tourists,
the kuffaar Saudi regime has imposed the restrictions on the use of loudspeakers. Thus, the decision of the kuffaar Saudi regime, like
all of its decrees, is kufr. This should not at all be a surprising emanation from the Saudi-Najdi Darul Kufr.
