Libyan Grand Mufti: Gadhafi an infidel

Libyan Grand Mufti Sheikh Sadiq al-Ghariany has said that deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi is an infidel, and that no prayers should be offered for him in mosques or by the Muslim public.
Ghariany said on Sunday in a fatwa – a religious opinion concerning Islamic law – and broadcast by Libyan media, that Qadhafi had gone against Islamic traditions and that his words and deeds during his reign showed that he was not a Muslim.

The prevailing opinion in the Islamic world is that a Muslim cannot go against the rulings of the Quran or the Sunnah, the practices and sayings of Prophet Mohamed.

Ghariany went on to say, “There is a valid reason for not praying for him, which is for him to become an example for other rulers."

He added that Gaddafi "may be buried in a Muslim cemetary, washed and prayed for by his family and relatives only”.

Ghariany said the former ruler “should be buried in an unmarked grave to avoid causing a rift between Libyans and so that his grave does not become a shrine."
Hmmm. I wonder if he knows about this.

Halachically he was a Jew. I am shocked they haven't trotted that out yet.

This is all because he's a Jew and they know it.

Empress Trudy,

It doesn't matter, if he is 'halachically jew' to you, in Sharia he was a Muslim or so he professed, and in any case, Muslim men can marry Book women so his mother being what she was wouldn't have mattered even if she had not converted to Islam.
