Al-Arqam was decreed a deviant sect in 1994 by the National Fatwa Council after it was found to have practised Aurad Muhammadiah teachings which was described as misleading Muslims from the true Islamic beliefs.

There are 41 ministries in the “shadow cabinet” including:

  •  the ministry of the netherworld (kementerian alam ghaib)

  •  the ministries of true souls and sects (roh suci dan tariqat)

  • the ministry of death and the hereafter (kematian dan akhirat)

  • the ministry of family and holy sex (keluarga dan seks suci)

Khatijah Am had assumed the position as their prime minister and claimed that she received direct orders from her late husband, the founder of Al-Arqam, Ashaari Muhammad.

Al-Arqam followers believe that Ashaari Muhammad is still leading them.

NST also reports that Khatijah lived in a mansion called RSA Palace in Mecca which she rented for 340,000 riyal (RM 276,000) a year.

She had been holding monthly meetings with “top leaders” of the sect in Malaysia via video conferencing.
