The Friday sermon on atheism and exposing women’s hair remain a hot topic in the Kuwaiti society, reports Al- Rai daily. In an interview with the daily, Sharia Professor at Kuwait University Dr Shafi Al-Ajmi explained that Friday sermons used to be one of the ways for Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to convey his teachings to the people, including guidelines on what is allowed and what is prohibited.

He pointed out the committee tasked to supervise the Friday sermon tackled a negative phenomenon (atheism) that spread recently in schools and social media. He attributed the scathing attack on the sermon to the fact that it highlighted reasons behind the spread of atheism and its negative impact on society. He said the sermon also touched on issues related to women who are not covering their hair and immorality, indicating the sermon was clear and it did not mention that every woman who exposes her hair is immoral. He asked those who condemned the sermon to present solutions to stop the spread of atheism.

On the other hand, Chairman of the Scientific Committee at the Islamic Heritage Revival Society Dr Muhammad Al-Homoud Al-Najdi asserted the Friday sermon plays a crucial role in handling major issues like drugs and terrorism, while curbing the spread of immoral acts such as atheism. He argued that if some countries consider non-belief part of freedom, the Islamic countries do otherwise.


He pointed out that talking about God and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in a negative way is unacceptable and it is not part of freedom. He stressed there are red lines in Islam and nobody should cross these lines. He went on to say the sermon warned about the problem, emphasizing that following western technological advancement does not mean following their ideology.

Furthermore, Anwar Al-Rasheed, a liberal activist, believes that what is happening now is a way of diverting citizens’ attention from plots being laid down secretly. He said the time has come to stop corruption which led to losses estimated at billions of Kuwaiti dinars. He affirmed the ongoing dispute is a way of making citizens less aware of serious issues.

Social media witnessed a similar dispute as Philosophy Professor at Kuwait University Dr Sheikha Al- Jassem posted: “Some individuals think that an aggressive sermon is part of freedom. Every individual’s freedom of speech is guaranteed but the sermon came from the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs which is a public institution, not an individual. There is a difference between hurling accusations and presenting a religious opinion with evidence.” Cleric Adel Al-Mutairan thanked the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs for protecting the society from devastating atheist ideologies.
