jazakhallahi khair for the info bro , what will be next ?
Hasbunallahu wa ni'mal-wakeel
two thumbs up from Ubaykan, and more "wisdom"(silence) from everyone else (except perhaps a brave few), Allah al-Musta'an
If it goes through then King Abdullah will become a mushrik according to the scholars on his Lajna al-Da'ima, for legislating against the Shari'ah.
However, i think its just words and it will never be put in place. He promised to do many things, just to please the west, but never applied them.
Are there not more instances of legislation already in place, which contracdict the Sharia? Take 'riba' - for example
Any scholars who spoke against it ? Who are the "brave few" ?
Saudi Arabia seem's to becoming more secular and secular. Anyway I wan't to see how are they going to enforce that law.
"The problem arises because some judges ignore these international agreements,"
Which we all know is not a problem.
Age of adulthood raised to 18
A total of 93 members supported the amendment, which defined adulthood as starting at the age of 18. According to the daily, the Islamic, Judicial and Child Rights Committee tried hard to maintain the signs of puberty or the age of 15 as the beginning of adulthood.
The age of adulthood has been a topic of debate among Islamic scholars for a long time. Some of them consider showing signs of manhood or menstruation as the end of childhood.
Azib Al-Misbil, chairman of the Islamic, Judicial and Child Rights Committee, said changing the age of adulthood from 15 to 18 is against the rules of Shariah.
He recalled that some companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him) took part in battles when they were only 15 and that this is proof that adulthood begins at 15.
However, Abdul Aziz Al-Qasim, a former judge who specialized in Islamic legislation, said it was contradictory for the Saudi government departments to adopt two ages of adulthood. Al-Qasim was referring to practices such as that of the traffic authorities to deny driving licenses to anyone under 18, while the Passport Department requires the consent of parents prior to allowing young Saudi men under 21 to travel abroad. He also pointed out that the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs does not grant land to those under 18 unless they are orphans or disabled.
The former judge called for considering the actual age, not just biological signs, as the end of childhood and the beginning of adulthood, especially since there are no clear-cut Shariah rules on the issue.
those judges will no doubt be slide lined with time, saudi is already flooded with pornography and little is done, but having books on jihad can get you into prison! sadly all so called muslim lands have gone this way towards the lizards hole.
The only way to prevent this is for the believers to take physical control of the deen.
He's a former Qadi who has since turned modernist. For more on him, read here:

Who will the madakhila call takfiri and khariji now?
Justabro you mention a brave few who are speaking out who would you class those as?
I would presume it is more likely to be independent scholars.
You mean he is an usooli.
But who is that? And who are the non-independent scholars?
Well, for one, Sh. Abdullah al-Sa'd is in and out of jail for his inkar of munkar, but it's not the sort of thing that would get press coverage.
Separate names with a comma.
