Ever since the start of the Arab Spring, Adnan al-Qattan's rhetorics have been more oriented into politics and he has told the people protesting to "calm down and keep the stability of the country."


In April 2013, Sheikh Adnan al-Qattan called the participants of the Bahrain national dialogue to move away from the appeal of defamation and derogation.[6]


Sheikh Adnan al-Qattan said that what is happening in Syria in this revolutionary period is one of the images of oppression and tyranny in the land.[7] He stressed that the "duty of every Muslim who cares about the issue of his brothers in Syria is to share their concerns and sorrows, and be sad to what they suffered, and the greatest thing that can be provided to them is prayer until God raises the victims from this calamity and removes this sorrow". In another preach, the imam confirmed that the justice and freedom will surely come no matter how long-standing injustice will take place because "injustice does not last, and each oppressor has an end".
