He said that Sheikh bin Jebreen stood against Shiites and enemies of Islam. He stated that clerics  from other states who appear in satellite channels are ignorant and work against Islamic laws.

Then, he talked about the status of Muslims and religious leaders in the Muslims World, and said that "Muslims around the world are nowadays seek the blessing of tombs, and they are living in great corruption. He, also, stated that "the nation will not survive from hell except one group which involves the followers of Sheikh bin Jebreen and religious leaders like him who are theists".

He attacked Shiites several times and called them "Rafidis". He depicted them as enemies to Islam and polytheists. At the end of his sermon, he imprecated those "who support and appear in satellite channels"; saying "O' Allah, limit their numbers, kill them and do not leave anyone of them".
