Adil al-Kalbani عادل الكلباني is a former Imam of the Mecca Great Mosque.[5]

Al-Kalbani admitted that Salafism is a source of ISIL ideology.[6][7][8][9] He acknowledged that the issue of Salafism and ISIL ideology needs to be discussed and confronted in an open manner in order to deal against extremists.[10] He spoke out against allowing the youth to join ISIS and pointed out the hypocrisy of Mullahs that would be content in issuing fatwas and dreaming of Islam being vicotrious and defeating "the evil armies of ISIS and the West".[11]

Muhammad ibn al Uthaymeen was cited by Al-Kalbani in an argument against suicide bombing, he also cited Abd al-Aziz ibn Baz while acknowledging that he believes in virgins in the afterlife.[12]

al-Kalbani declared as apostates the religious clerics among the Shia[13] and said that Saudi Arabia does not restrict women's rights, said Obama's election was less important than him being the Grand Mosque Imam and that suicide constitutes people killing themselves according to ibn al Uthaymeen.[14] A tweet was posted by him predicting that anti-driving fatwas for women would be overcome by a pro-driving campaign by women.[15] al-Kalbani criticized a political poem by Khalid bin Faisal Al Saud.[16] BBC was the agency that was interviewing him.[17][18]

The statement on Shia by Kalbani prompted a backlash from Shia in Saudi Arabia.[19]

The fact that Church bells are not heard in Saudi Arabia pleased Adil Al-Kalbani according to a tweet he made.[20][21]

After this statement, The New York Times was criticized for hailing Adil Al-Kalbani by Alberto M. Fernandez.[22]

The Qibla Tour arranged a UK jaunt for al-Kalbani. Britain then blocked him.[23]

Al-Kalbani was sued by Souad Al Shammari, a Saudi woman activist.[24][25][26]

Permission to sing was granted in a fatwa[27][28][29] then retracted by al-Kalbani.[30] A religious singing event was attended by al-Kalbani.[31] A flute was used.[32][33][34]

He said he was not a Shaykh but a Qari.[35] He denied any Muslim Brotherhood affiliation for Arefe and him, saying that he is affiliated with the Union of Muslim Scholars.[36] Saudi National Day was commemorated by al-Kalbani.[37] The Sidney-Hilal football match caused al-Kalbani and Al-Qarni to engage in a dispute.[38]

In Japan's city of Bendu a center of Minhaj-ul-Quran was visited by Al-Kalbani on June 30, 2013.[39]

In 2015 he visited Nairobi in Kenya.[40] Kenyan cleric Said Rageah met with Adil al-Kalbani.[41]

Kalbani said that it was perhaps the "liberal" cranes which did not "prostrate".[42]
