In a November 8 interview with the UAE channel Alaan TV, former Mufti of Al-Qaeda, Abu Hafs Al-Mauritani, said that the caliphate declared by ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi does not meet the terms dictated by the shari’a. Abu Hafs criticized ISIS for its massacres of Shiites, killing of civilians, and slaughtering of journalists, and added that the split of ISIS from Al-Qaeda was anticipated.
An Arab prince from the UAE volunteered to be buried alive for 20 minutes for a TV programme. Here is what he had to say about his experience. We will all face death one day, so let us prepare for it. Let us change our ways for the better and rectify our relationships with our families and close ones. Let us repent to Allah and be in such a state that if we were to pass away, we are ready to meet Him.
