according to a few a sources here in madinah, shaykh huzaifa was relieved of his duties until otherwise. the primary reason was the khutbah which shaykh delivered last week against the rawaafidh/shias of saudi arabia who have been trying to cause unrest in the eastern region. the khutbah was deemed too offensive although he was staunchly supporting the saudi government. it must be added that no one is sure for how long this will continue.
please listen to the khutbah- quite intresting.
