Libyan Islamic Scholar: Shireen Abu Akleh Was a Christian, So We Are Forbidden from Praying for Her [Video]

On May 12, 2022, Libyan Islamic scholar Sheikh Zain Khairallah posted to his YouTube channel a video in which he commented on the previous-day death of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in the crossfire between Israeli forces and Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank city of Jenin. Sheikh Khairallah said that because Abu Akleh was a Christian, it is forbidden for Muslims to pray for Allah to forgive her sins or have mercy on her soul. However, he said that it is permitted to feel sad over her death, to console her family, and to pray for Allah to take revenge against her killers. Sheikh Khairallah has 290,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, and this video was watched 45,000 times.
