FATWA. . . . . . . . Seriously?
- a non-binding judgment on a point of Islamic law given by a recognized religious authority
There were many fatwas issued in the year 2011 and here are THREE from the site, Bare Naked Islam. Warning if you are not Muslim you may giggle.
ONE: From an Islamic preacher in Europe: All Muslim women are prohibited from purchasing, touching or eating any fruit or vegetable that is suggestive in shape such as cucumbers, and bananas. These fruits clearly suggest a phallic symbol. For a Muslim woman to do so might instill impure thoughts.
In this photo you can see an example of such a dangerous vegetable, in this case a squash, and it is clear how this might make a woman turn to sin. I know personally I printed this picture and hung it on the wall and find it very, very sinful.
I dunno tho, these men seem to be enjoying just holding it.
TWO: In Somalia, the ultraconservative al-Shabaab al-Mujahedin Movement issued this fatwa: This triangular shaped popular snack which is a pastry stuffed with meat, cheese and called a sambousak, is NOT to be eaten because it too closely resembles the Trinity of Christianity.
THREE: From the head of the Moroccan Association for Jurisprudence Research came the fatwa allowing Muslim to have sex with their just deceased wives.
Well, there ain’t nothing in Islam that prohibits sex with a corpse. So there!
My favorite Fatwa
But my favorite is one I referred to previously on my website, www.Jihad-is-no-joke.comand it is not funny at all, it is from Dr. Salih bin Fawzan of Saudi Arabia a pious man of enormous wisdom. It is a religious fatwa, a religious proclamation that states there is no minimum age for marriage and that girls can e married “even if they are in the cradle.” He gleaned this wisdom from the life of Mohammed the great messenger of Allah, who himself married a girl of age six.
That’s all folks. These are your 2011 fatwas.
