I am not the owner of the call to stop Sheikh Dr. Mabrouk Attia, I know the popularity of the tyrannical Sheikh, and I know very well that he has captured the hearts of many people, with his funny style and stinging jokes, but it is a hashtag, launched by a number of Egyptians, on the Twitter social networking site, so what is the origin of tale?

The origin of the story is that a professor of Islamic law at Al-Azhar University was responding to a wife who was abused by her husband, during an interview on the TV program “Happening in Egypt”, which is broadcast on MBC Egypt. He said that women exaggerate their complaints about men in cases of domestic violence. He added that there is a rule that says, if a person gets up from sleep and gets hit immediately, or enters the house and gets hit immediately, then this person needs a mental hospital, because he definitely has a disease, but a normal person cannot reach this degree, except after a very strong degree of provocation.

The words of Sheikh Mabrouk Attia did not go unnoticed in Egypt, as the hashtag Stop_Mabrouk_Atia was issued on social media, and the tweeters demanded through it, to stop the Sheikh, and prevent his appearance on television, accusing him of justifying the assault on women. The professor of Islamic law at Al-Azhar University responded to the circulating hashtag and the demands to stop it, and he said in a live broadcast on Facebook: “Every word I responded with has evidence in the Sunnah, due to the absence of a husband,” stressing that he always takes a “fair stance against women.” . However, the “Speak up” account, a feminist initiative to support victims of violence in all its forms, denounced “the media justification of violence against women, under the cover of religion,” stressing the danger that many of the comments “support the words of Sheikh Al-Azhari.”

The issue did not stop with the users of the social networking site. The Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi intervened by phone with the “Happening in Egypt” program, expressing his happiness with the preacher, Dr. Mabrouk Attia, and the various issues he deals with, and said: “I will not say any remark about him, because The eminent scholars are not given notes. He added that all those who listen to us have different cultures, and different and diverse ideas, not all people receive all speech with the same understanding intended when it is presented, and pointed out that “even if the speaker has his support and intellectual and scientific prestige, not everyone will understand him in the same way, for this, Those who listen to him should be taken into consideration, because the ideas are different.”

This is not the first time that Sheikh Mabrouk Attia has been attacked. Dr. Samir Sabry, the cassation lawyer, had previously filed a lawsuit against him, to prevent him from appearing on television and satellite channels, claiming that he is not qualified to do so, but the Administrative Court of the State Council in Egypt, It ruled that the case was not accepted, and Sheikh Mabrouk Attia emerged victorious from the battle. Will the cheerful smiling Sheikh, as his fans call him, win this time over the users of social networking sites, some of whom are campaigning against him, demanding that he be stopped and prevented from appearing on TV screens?

The phenomenon of funny sheikhs in the audio-visual media is neither new nor urgent. Sheikh Mabrouk Attia himself has been on television since 1983, before the emergence of satellite channels. Those who witnessed the emergence of radio and television in the Arab world remember well the Syrian writer and jurist Sheikh Ali al-Tantawi, may God have mercy on him, who began presenting radio programs on the Near East Radio from Jaffa in the early thirties, then on Radio Baghdad in 1937 CE, and presented on Radio Damascus in the year 1942 AD, for more than two continuous decades, and his last station was on the Radio and Television of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from which he presented for about a quarter of a century. In 1967, and continued until 1992. We can not fail to mention the funny Saudi sheikh, Suleiman Al-Jubailan, who gives the lectures in which he participates, an atmosphere of fun and humor, making him a star that competes with the most popular comedy stars.

These sheikhs and their ilk present a different face of preachers and muftis, which television screens, radio microphones, and lecture halls need, just as you need all other sheikhs and preachers, who represent another indispensable face. For this, we say: Do not stop Sheikh Mabrouk Attia, whose fatwas and responses have become the highest views on social media, and everyone is circulating them on various platforms.
