AN Egyptian cleric's controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.
According to the religious edict issued by Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former dean of Al-Azhar University's faculty of Sharia (or Islamic law), "being completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage". The religious decree sparked a hot debate on the private satellite network Dream's popular religious talk show and on the front page of Al-Masri Al-Yom, Egypt's leading independent daily newspaper.
Suad Saleh, who heads the women's department of Al-Azhar's Islamic studies faculty, pleaded for "anything that can bring spouses closer to each other" and rejected the claim that nudity during intercourse could invalidate a union.
During the live televised debate, Islamic scholar Abdel Muti dismissed the fatwa: "Nothing is prohibited during marital sex, except of course sodomy."
For his part, Al-Azhar's fatwa committee chairman Abdullah Megawar argued that married couples could see each other naked but should not look at each other's genitalia and suggested they cover up with a blanket during sex.
When Scrappleface and reality collide.
Does wearing a smile count?
"Well, then, what's the point?"
"Divorce the fun and easy way!"
When the 7th century and the 21st century collide.
There's probably a reason so many of those Arab women keep their sacks, er ah burkas on. Problem is most of the men I have seen also need at least two sacks. They must of figured it out though, the rats are multiplying faster than ever.
Instead of a 2 bagger, I guess it is a 2 burka...
I find it curious that the Left derides Christianity and Judaism, but tells us we must respect Islam.
And we wonder why all of these people are so angry?
One more reason I don't believe in the religeon of peace.
How do these guys procreate? And yet they seem to do it very frequently.
My best guess is they take these Fatwas as seriously as Catholics take the Popes edicts on contraception. (I understand Italy has the lowest birthrate in the world).
Islam is ugly, and that is the naked truth!
This kind of reminds me of some practices of a Christian cult I read about a few years back. They used a lot of manipulative techniques to get people into the cult and keep them in and eventually to control all of their lives. This included the sex lives of married people -- and people in the cult marry only other members. The "pastor" or "cousellor" instructs the couple to have relations on certain nights in certain positions in certain locations in their home. My assumption is that, if the couple went along with this without questioning it, then the cult really had them.
Imagine what they would say about leaving the lights on?
I guess if the women wore a wool coat the guys could think they were with a sheep and feel right at home.
This is clearly the work of the CIA.
Islam....the tail the left wags...
They must have seen my ex-wife! Rimshot, badda boom! Somebody take her, ....please!
"You Can Leave Your Hat On", one of the sexiest songs ever written. I like the Joe Cocker version.
