According to Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi’s official Facebook page, the Muslim cleric will attend demonstrations at Rabaa Al-Adaweya Mosque in support of President Morsi on Sunday at 5 pm.

The shiekh landed in Cairo International Airport Saturday night, amid rumours that Qatar’s new Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani had asked him to leave. Al-Qaradawi’s official Facebook page denied these reports.

“These rumours are spread  by media outlets in support of Syrian president Bashar Al- Assad in an attempt to taint my image” he said Al-Qaradawi on Facebook.

Al-Qaradawi, considered a prominent spiritual leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, has been openly critical of Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, urging Muslims across the world to engage in jihad against him.
