بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
Despite what news media outlets are promoting, Fayhan al Ghamdi is not an Islamic scholar. God willing this web post can clarify what has happened and why he was given the punishment he received:
The accused man فيحان الغامدي turns out to be an ex-drug addict who repented and used to tell his repentance story on some private satellite TV stations (thus why he has been seen on TV). Not all beard wearing men on TV are scholars or preachers. He is limited to a 4th grade education according to his own admission. He had a troubled upbringing and came from a broken household. He was abused and locked up as a juvenile, that entire story can be read here. Some brothers gave him da’wah and influenced him enough so that he could reform himself. He got a job to wash the dead and has been doing that ever since. He was never a cleric and he never raped the girl as alleged.
The girl was in the hospital for more than six months and finally died. She had not been buried due to the ongoing investigation. Below is an entire Arabic episode that discusses the subject and interviews the mother – a source that most News media has ignored.
The actual story begins from 12:00-42:00 of the clip.
wa Allaahu ‘Alam.
