My Favourite Mufti

Hantu Laut

Asri was mufti for two years before quitting the position to move to Wales last December to research on Islam. — Picture by Jeremiah Mahadevan

If we have more mufti like him than Malaysia would not have so much inter-religious problems.

Mohamad Asri Zainul is the most dogmatic and progressive mufti in the country because I believe he has the true interpretation of Islamic jurisprudence.It is sad that he has to leave his job to further his study in Islamic theology.

I hope one day he would be made the Grand Mufti of Malaysia.
