Libya’s grand mufti calls for donations to Gaza, says multiple umrahs are wasteful

Libya’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Sadiq al-Ghariani

Libya’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Sadiq al-Ghariani, recently said that spending money on performing multiple Umrah is a waste.

He thinks it’s more important to support Gaza’s people and their resistance against oppression, as Israel continues genocide killing more than 32,000 Palestinians since October 7, 2023.

Sheikh Ghariani says it’s not right for Muslims to think Umrahs are the best worship, especially when people in Gaza are suffering. He said it’s wrong to ignore their struggles.

He criticises restaurants that support Israel, saying money spent there supports Gaza’s oppression. He urges people to avoid these places.

Ghariani warns against believing Israel and the US’s claims about a new sea crossing for Gaza aid. He calls it a trick.

He asks Muslims if it makes sense for America to help Gaza while also harming them. He thinks sending weapons to enemies is wrong. The mufti says helping Gaza doesn’t need big convoys or new crossings. What’s needed is a ceasefire.
