Muslims should not publicise iftar meals during the fasting month of Ramadan as they harm the religion, according to a prominent Saudi Islamic scholar.

“Muslims should not show off by publicising iftar meals whether they are charity or other meals,” said Sheikh Saad bin Turki Al Khathlan, a member of the seven-man Supreme Scholars Committee in Saudi Arabia.

“Filming such meals and pilgrims in the holy sites for publication purposes is harmful to the religion and worshipping activities,” he told the Saudi daily ‘Al-Jazirah’.
