The Grand Mufti of the Sultanate of Oman, Sheikh Ahmed bin Hamad Al Khalili, directed a "greeting of respect and reverence" to the State of Qatar, against the background of some of the decisions and initiatives it is currently taking on the sidelines of the World Cup.
And Sheikh Al-Khalili tweeted on his Twitter account, saying, "We salute the sisterly State of Qatar, a greeting of greatness and reverence, for its refusal to raise slogans of the most obscene vice that Sharia disapproves of, nature is disgusted with, and normal instinct is repulsed by it."
We salute the sisterly State of Qatar with great respect and admiration.
For her refusal to raise slogans of the most obscene vice that is rejected by the Sharia, disgusted by nature, and repulsed by normal instinct, and for exploiting this great scene in her land to display true Islam in its glorious image and dazzling beauty through various means;
To make people his argument and show them his truth.

He said that Qatar took advantage of "this great scene - the World Cup - in its land to display true Islam in its glorious image and dazzling beauty through various means, to establish its argument for people and show them its truth."
And yes, Sheikh Tamim raised the banner of Islam and its dignity, and called for righteousness and goodness and rejecting corruption and vices in the land of love, goodness and Arabism

He added, "This, of course, falls within the call to goodness and enjoining good and forbidding evil, and that is one of the strongest reasons for victory and empowerment."
Thank you, His Eminence, our venerable Sheikh, for these beautiful words.
Qatar deserves this support for standing in the face of the Western imperialist global campaign to spread and promote abnormalities.
They bared their fangs, left tolerance aside, and did not pay attention to sports, but their pressure on Qatar to spread their filth of alcohol and perversion.
They were disappointed and their efforts failed.

The message of Sheikh Ahmed Al-Khalili, Mufti of the Sultanate of Oman, and the veneration it contained for the prominent role played by the State of Qatar. May you be blessed, O people of Qatar.. May God grant you success in what you seek to spread and introduce the Islamic religion.

Tweeters interacted on communication platforms with the tweet of the Grand Mufti of Oman, praising his "supporting the truth" stances, while other tweeters stressed the need to support Qatar for standing up to what they described as "the Western campaign to spread and promote homosexuality", praising at the same time the positions of the Emir of the State of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in organizing the tournament while preserving Islamic and Arab values.
