Please do, let them all (Saudis and the rest) stay where they are.
Saudi Grand Mufti against foreign holidays that favour vices and immorality
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh calls on Saudis to spend their holidays at home. Excessive freedom in other countries may be dangerous to their values and morals. For those set to go, he admonishes to pray, fear God, and force their women to wear the veil.
Riyadh (AsiaNews/Agencies) – Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh slammed foreign holidays for Saudi nationals not out of concern for the kingdom’s domestic tourism, but to protect their virtues and morality.
“It is better not to go to other countries because of the excessive freedom and disregard of their people for social and moral obligations,” the mufti said answering a question from a listener during a radio show.
To those who are already abroad, he said they should work to maintain their Islamic spirit by performing prayers and adhering to other religious obligations.
“These countries have completely open social media and communication systems where everything is available online,” Al-Sheikh warned.
