Cairo: ‘Being Naked During Sex Annuls Marriage’

Its a ‘controversial’ fatwa of course, but it comes from a former dean of Al Azahr university, this great beacon of Muhammedan science in the Middle East:

Cairo – An Egyptian cleric’s controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.

* Al-Azhar University (the highest center of Sunni Islamic learning in the world) has issued a fatwa declaring that if a husband and wife are completely naked during sex, the marriage is annulled.

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”.

Is it okay like this, mufti?

The religious decree sparked a hot debate on the private satellite network Dream’s popular religious talk show and on the front page of Sunday’s 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.

  1. Islam is the stupidest cult in the world. No wonder they have to kill anyone who criticizes, questions or leaves Islam. We could destroy by Islam by mocking Islam in every way but instead we praise and respect it.

  2. These guys are quite amusing. They complain about how permissive the West is regarding sex and yet I can’t find any other group that constantly brings up the subject (always via fatwa it seems) like Muslims do.

  3. Once again the legend and truth warrior aka sheik yer m’ami has showed that our crude cousins have not got a clue…in Judaism the law is that a man and wife must (ideally,if there is no danger of cold or any other risk such as an open wound etc) be naked during their love making. That is becasue God in His abounding kindness has allowed us to gain maximum pleasure from being intimate with our spouses, doing this increases the love and passion in a marriage, making the couple happier and thereby more successful and effective parteners and parents.
    The good things on this world are there to enjoy healthily and in moderation.
    If indeed this is the Muslim view it shows an unhealthy view of the world ie that we must be ‘better’ than God,by imposing irrational laws on ourselves. How about as a start in life ,try preserving and defending it, not taking it, crushing it and blowing it up.

  4. Greetings from Dar al-Harbourtown. Compared to Rashad Hassan Khalil, Ayatollah Khomeini was positively … well, something, but requires a strong stomach before reading: *Warning*

    “A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable.”

    “A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm.”

    “If a man sodomises the son, brother, or father of his wife after their marriage, the marriage remains valid.”

  5. Very sad and stupid sex life, very sad and stupid life living under Islam full stop, sure isn’t it no wonder that they blow them self’s up and kill the infidels, thinking this will get them to the moon gods eternal whore house for a better quality of life, and for some decent sex. As well as a evil cult, it also the most silly stupid cult

  6. Why are these muslims talk about sex all the time?. Becasue the fake prophet of Islam, Mohammed was a rapist who raped many Jews women. This fake prophet had sex with a girl of nine years. What a nice religion!,

  7. There’s an idea! Do a Mel Brooks on ’em. ” Springtime for Alla” . Enemies aren’t as fierce if they’re being made fun of. The reason we don’t stand up to these monsters is out of fear. And ‘stupid’ is an UNDERSTATEMENT’. It’s IN-flippin’ sane! I used to think Jehovah’s witnesses were pushy, but this takes all prizes for pure GALL!

    Well, Islam, do your worst, I know my Redeemer lives, whatever you might do!

  8. If one of those monsters tried raping my neice, they’d get to their ‘paradise’ in the world’s biggest hurry! I’d go on my own personal ‘jihad’ and butcher the lot of ’em!

  9. We all need to look at islam with an open mind don’t just listen to what people or the media say go out there and look into it yourself and please do not leave comments which may offend peoples religions God punishes ppl for hurting others. May he guide us all in the righteous path

  10. Jana, as Ismail notes – islam is plain stupid. Do you really think that a religion that councels abuse of women, destruction of all non-muslims, and was simply a tool for an agressive warlord is even worth consdiering as a religion or just the abhorrent output of a demented arab thug ca. 600 AD.
