In my opinion, Dato’ Nik Aziz is not Ulama but ahli Kitab. However all PAS members and many Muslims in Malaysia regard him as Ulama.
In my opinion, Dato’ Nik Aziz does not have the correct understanding of Islam. Many of his recent speeches that I have heard from the Youtube are not in accordance to Quran and Hadis.
He is more a politician than Ulama. With such wrong understanding about Islam, Dato’ Nik Aziz would not be able to practice the true Islamic practices in his administration.
