Laws of Islaam apply to all

Reference: Mawaaqif Mudhee.ah fee Hayaat al-Imaam ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn Baaz – Page 32.

Abu ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Aqeel ath-Thaahiree narrates :

Once, an ignorant bystander offered a sacrifice by the car of King Sa’ood [parked] near as-Safaa [in Makkah] – rejoicing at his arrival.

Choking back tears and raising his voice, Shaykh Ibn Baaz exclaimed:

“This is haraam, haraam! It is not permissible to eat of it.”

When King Sa’ood found out about the act of this ignorant bystander he became angry. It is assumed the sacrifice was then taken to the zoo. The King then thanked the Shaykh for taking such a stance.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
