A grievous insult for Sheik al-Hilali:
Australia’s Muslim spiritual leader, Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, has lost his $40,000 cleric’s allowance and been told to apply for the dole …
The high-profile sheik has been instructed to “contact your local Centrelink office” by the nation’s peak Muslim body, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, which is locked in a legal dispute over its leadership and has been denied access to its bank accounts.
Sheik al-Hilali reacts in his usual calm manner:
“I would prefer to die 100 times over than to stand in line seeking welfare payments from Centrelink,” he says …
“Does your dignity or Islamic manners permit you to direct such an insult to a spiritual leader who had spent his life in the service of the faith?
“You are very much mistaken if you believe that you can insult me, my dignity will not accept for me to be held hostage to the mercy of AFIC or anyone else for that matter.”
Earlier understated Hilalisms:
* “It was filled with perils, indescribable perils!”
* “Of course this is a difficult and dangerous case and the hard time in Baghdad. I have enough for like a film, movie in Baghdad!”
* “Every so often a car would blow up and we would witness bodies flying in the air.”
UPDATE. Good news for the Sheik:
AFIC’s legal adviser Haset Sali today said a glitch in the system was being sorted out and the sheik would be paid.
“He will be looked after, he will get his pay in due course … and the poor old sheik won’t have to join the dole queue,” Mr Sali said.
They are mocking him! His dignity will not accept it!
