 Islamic Precepts and Family Planning: The Perceptions Of Jordanian Religious Leaders and Their Constituents
Religious leaders were found to be less favorably disposed toward family planning than other elite groups (such as teachers and community leaders), but the authors did not compare religious leaders' responses with those of the general population.
Religious leaders also were asked about their public pronouncements regarding family planning, to which 36% replied that they had preached about family planning in the year preceding the survey.
Although religious leaders were not asked what they discussed, it is reasonable to assume that their conversations were favorable or reasonably favorable toward the practice of family planning, since 91% of those who reported that community members seek their advice regarding family planning believe that it is in keeping with Islamic precepts.

The Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha'at-e-Islam (Lahore) Fiji once produced a leaflet written in Urdu which directed some questions at the present-day Islamic religious leaders and theological experts in connection with the beliefs of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement and the declaration of Ahmadis in Pakistan as non-Muslims.
i.e., "for he (the spiritual leader) is the prophet of the age, O disciple, because he clearly manifests the light of prophethood."

 Boston.com / News / World / Religious leaders raise specter of an 'intifadah'
BAGHDAD -- Religious leaders yesterday used a dreaded word -- "intifadah," or popular uprising -- to describe the nationwide clashes with occupation troops that began Sunday and continued yesterday evening.
Lieutenants of the Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, whose followers sparked the fighting, have pointedly invited members of rival Muslim sects, as well as Iraqi nationalists, to resist alongside them, and turn what had been relatively contained resistance to the US occupation into a genuinely national revolt.
But it appeared the vast majority of Iraqis were taking their cues not from their politicians' statements on television, but from Islamic religious leaders, who spread their orders through a well-organized hierarchy of mosques and neighborhood offices.
