Later, by the order of the leadership of the emirate to attract and collect financial aid in Saudi Arabia, a four-member committee was created with the membership of Sheikh Sahib, which collected approximately 20 million Rials in six years, which was given to the emirate through Mutasim Agha, finally, the Islamic Emirate wanted Mutasim Agha to be transparent and accountable but unfortunately he did not show up, so he was dismissed by the Emirate.

After the dismissal of Mutasim Agha form his position, Shaikh Saheb was under serious pursuit by the Saudi government, and finally he was arrested in the month of Rabi al-Thani, 1431 AH, and he was sentenced to 9 years in prison and three hundred thousand Rial fines by the court of this country. After serving the mentioned period of imprisonment, he was imprisoned for another 4 months, and finally he was released from prison in the month of Sha’ban 1440 AH and was blessed with freedom.
