Sheikh Al Qaradawi warns speeding drivers in Qatar to ‘fear God’


As part of its campaign to prevent road accidents, the Ministry of Interior is posting short cautionary videos on its Facebook page.

The first one, which we ran on Sunday, was aimed at expats who cross roads while on their mobile phones.

But the video posted this morning includes a direct address to Qatari youth by Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi, who advises these men to “fear God” and likens speeding to committing suicide, a grave sin.

The video, which contains graphic photos of accident scenes, starts off in Arabic but Qaradawi’s admonishments contain English subtitles.
