he is on a power trip. nothing to do with the other clown being a jew either. certain clerics like to control everyone's lives instead of embracing a consultant role. muslims are not required to hide from the world and other realities. we are supposed to embrace all knowledge and put it to examination vs our system of belief even if sometimes it seems to contradict our faith. all he is scared of as mentioned is for believer to believe less. well. for his information, faith is between God and a believer. that does not involve a three way. in a lifetime, your belief can be non existant, grow, diminish, disappear, come back...all is possible and your faith is tested by many events. it is life. this story is ridiculous. he could as well have said having friends who are not of the same faith or atheists is also haram. how far does he intend to go? he should not be using such term so lightly. this is very disappointing from a cleric...he can choose not to live with FB, which I do for different reasons but in no case, he should impose his views and pretend this is backed up by our religion.
