Fortune Teller Faces Beheading in Saudi Arabia

Our Saudi “allies”, are giving us a glimpse of just how intolerant Islam really is. According to Islamic Law, sorcery is illegal. Maybe they are afraid of sorcery (fortune telling), because the fortune teller might tell people that Islam is a big lie.

From the “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”

Sacred Knowledge

a7.2 Unlawful knowledge includes:

(1) learning sorcery, since according to the most reliable position, it is unlawful, as the vast majority of scholars have decisively stated;

YUSUFALI: They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: “We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme.” They learned from them the means to sow discord between man and wife. But they could not thus harm anyone except by Allah’s permission. And they learned what harmed them, not what profited them. And they knew that the buyers of (magic) would have no share in the happiness of the Hereafter. And vile was the price for which they did sell their souls, if they but knew!

Fortune Teller Faces Beheading in Saudi Arabia

(April 1) — A popular Lebanese TV personality who hosted a show where he predicted the future and gave callers advice is awaiting execution in Saudi Arabia for witchcraft, his lawyer said this week.

Ali Hussain Sabat is the former host of a popular call-in show that aired on the Beirut-based satellite TV channel Sheherazade. On the show, he answered callers’ questions about the future and dispatched general advice on life questions.

Under Saudi Arabia’s strict interpretation of Islam, that’s considered sorcery — a crime punishable by death. The Saudi religious police burst into Sabat’s hotel room in the city of Medina in 2008 and arrested him while on a Muslim pilgrimage to the kingdom. A Saudi court convicted Sabat last year and sentenced him to death.

In Saudi Arabia, most executions are carried out by beheading the victim with a sword, often in a public square. They’re most commonly carried out on Thursdays, the last day of the work week there.

Sabat’s lawyer, May el-Khansa, told several news agencies Wednesday that she believes her client will be executed within 48 hours. She’s appealing to Lebanese authorities, including the country’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, to intervene.

“It is very important that we save the life of this one person,” el-Khansa told Agence France-Presse. “He is not a criminal.” She added that Sabat’s family is in shock and that his elderly mother is seriously ill, with doctors saying the stress of her son’s ordeal has brought her to the brink of death herself.

The 46-year-old Sabat is the father of five children.

    Once again, the Wahhabi Savages who run "The Kingdom" demonstrate the "peaceful" face of Islam.

    With Friends and Allies like this, who needs enemies?

      He is a true believer, and has no problem with his kids following in his footsteps.

        He is even asked if he had beheaded anyone he knew. He said yes he had beheaded former friends. He was asked about how it felt. They had to suit themselves basically. As I said before, creepy guy. Not one I would ever would have as a friend or even live closer than a thousand miles from my home.

    Well, just a few more hours and the guys head will roll. I don't know how many astrologers there actually are in the western hemisphere but if we turn to pislam it'll be a lot of chop-chop…

    I've seen a few reports about this and not one mentions the obvious.

    He was arrested in Soddy Barbaria for an alleged crime that happened in Lebanon. Apart from the illegality of this, it also poses a real problem for anyone visiting there.

    As an example, we've all seen news reports on TV from time to time of, say, politicians have a toast to something. Given the above precedent, the Soddy Barbarian religious police can arrest a politician visiting there for drinking alcohol if they have proof (in the form of video). We know that also arrest kafirs because there are news reports recording that.

    So nobody should really visit Soddy Barbaria since there's a real risk you might be arrested and beheaded upon entry.

      Did the show even air in SA?

      • April 3, 2010 at 3:28 am

        I've no idea. I suspect it might have. Of course, this also raises the question of why Leb arselifters didn't go after him too?

    A lot of us believe in different things…some good…some bad…some stupid…..

    But to have sanctioned executions over it? C'mon! What does that tell us abouit Saudi Arabia?

    So what happened? Did his head come off or not?

    • April 3, 2010 at 3:30 am

      I'd be impressed if he could put in back on afterwards.

      Although, I understand that after a beheading, the Soddy Barbarians sew the head back on and then crucify the corpse.

    • April 3, 2010 at 4:49 am

      I don't think that it happened yet. If I see an update, I will post it.

        Maybe King Abdullah chickened out due to public pressure and Amnesty International although I kinda doubt it. they usually don't give a rat's ass to what the kuffar thinks.

    Yeah but guys – he DARED TO PROPHECIZE, get it?

    This guy was 'predicting the future' but remember what Big Mo said:

    "I is da last Prophet of dem all, Capisce?!"

    The Saudomites are just following orders.


    • April 3, 2010 at 4:48 am

      Hey Vladdi,

      YUSUFALI: Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.

    This is why Saudi Arabia is one of the most peaceful and tranquil countries on the planet.
    The penalty under an Islamic state is that all magicians once found guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt will be killed.

    Disclaimer: ISIS is NOT an Islamic state, rather it is at war with the Muslims themselves!
