Abdallah Muhammad al Muhaysini, a senior Saudi cleric, claims that God is sending him new revelations through direct communication.
According to a report by Al Alam News Network, as translated by IFP, Muhaysini said in a post on his Twitter account that he has received new revelations from God.
“One night, I saw in my dreams that I was holding the Holy Quran in a gathering with my friends. I was reciting the verses when a new verse was revealed to me. This verse was written on the last page of the holy book,” he said.
“My friends and I started crying after seeing the verse on the last page of the book. I underlined the verse …, but later on, after opening the book once again, we noticed that the line is not there anymore. It was removed.”
The claim sparked a controversy in social media, and the Wahhabi cleric was forced to remove his remarks and the verse from his Twitter account.
Some are saying that Muhaysini is a liar and some believe that he is claiming to be a prophet to justify his crimes in Syria.
