Who is Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais?

Abdul Rahman Ibn Abdul Aziz as-Sudais is the imam of the Grand mosque in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, and the "Islamic Personality Of the Year" 2005. He has also called for peaceful inter-faith dialogue.

Al-Sudais has called for efforts to combat terrorism, discussed ways to combat terrorism, and has preached Islam's opposition to "explosions and terrorism". He actively speaks out against what he believes to be the persecution of Palestinians by Israeli settlers and the state of Israel, and has pleaded for medical supplies and food to be sent to the Palestinians. However, Al-Sudais has been sharply criticized for vilifying non-Muslims and Jews in some of his sermons .
