Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan Al-Fawzan

Not to be confused with Saleh Al-Fawzan.

Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan Al-Fawzan (Arabic: فوزان، عبد العزيز بن فوزان بن صالح) is a well known islamic scholar and author in Saudi Arabia. He is also known as Sheikh Abd al-Aziz b. Fawzan al-Fawzan and Abd Al-Aziz Al-Fawzan.

Background and education

He is a Saudi Professor of Islamic Law at Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University[1] and a member of the Teacher’s Board, al-Imam University. In the past, he taught at the Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America (IIASA).[2]

Al-Fawzan speaks frequently on Saudi TV, and has reportedly been highly critical of Christianity and the United States.[3] Of Christians he has reportedly said, "Someone who denies Allah, worships Christ, son of Mary, and claims that God is one third of a trinity – so you like these things he says and does? Don’t you hate the faith of such a polytheist who says God is one third of a trinity, or who worships Christ, son of Mary?"

Al-Fawzan, however, further commented that Muslims should have positive hatred, which is to feel compassion and mercy and to try to help people convert to Islam and submit to one god.[3] Of America and the 2008 economic crisis, he said, "America is collapsing, according to the same scenario of the Russian collapse."
