Fatwa Bans Men from Being Alone with ‘Handsome Young Boys’

In Islamic countries you will often find many young boys hanging around  mosques. When I asked Sam Solomon, an ex-muslim  recently about whether these  activities were not promised for the afterlife, he looked at me with puzzlement: “why wait?”

When CNN’s Stan Grant interviewed  mullah Abdul Aziz, he glossed over it without understanding: “as he feeds rice to his five-year-old adopted son”–

“The penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you have sex is utterly delicious and out of this world, and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e., Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.”

Fatwa Bans Men from Being Alone with ‘Handsome Young Boys’

How far will Muslims go in their attempts to follow as literally as possible the teachings of Islam, especially the many countless and colorful fatwas that appear from their ulema, that is, “the ones who know”—the “scholars” of Islam?

Many are aware that Islamic law bans men and women who are not married or related from being in each other’s company. Recently, however, a Saudi cleric, Sheikh Abdullah Da ‘ud, took it a step further on live Arabic TV by repeatedly declaring that “it is forbidden to be around handsome youth, those beardless boys who have a touch of temptation in them [fitna].”

Nor is Sheikh Da‘ud the only one to suggest that beardless youth are sources of temptation for Muslim men. Islam Web has an English-language fatwa supporting Sheikh Da‘ud’s assertions. And here is American Muslim preacher Khalid Yasin saying that “among the companions of the Prophet, they used not to even look at a man who shaves his beard for fear they may have desire for him.”

Perhaps this explains why Abu Islam, another notorious Egyptian preacher, insisted that one of his secular opponents, Bassem Youssef, whom he referred to as a beardless “pretty boy,” should wear the niqab, the face veil worn by some Muslim women.

As Wael Ibrashi of Dream TV, who aired this clip, put it, “At a time when the world is busy trying to find cures for cancer and for all the diseases that afflict society, and trying to advance and develop technology, unfortunately some of Islam’s preachers take us backwards in time through their backwards fatwas”—fatwas which seem to get worse with each passing year, such as the recommendation that Muslims drink camel urinefor its salutary benefits, based on prophet Muhammad’s advice.

  1. Are all muslim men homo sexuals and if so why do they make homosexuality punishable by death. I am one confused Infidel.

    Don’t they know that Gillard’s Royal Commission into child abuse is only to be aimed at the catholic church – the terms of reference would never EVAH include Islam, under which there is no child abuse or any other violence. The feminists in Gillard’s cabinet tell us that it’s only Western, white Jewish/Catholic/Conservative males who do nasty things to women and children. So – you can stop this Fatwa, dear old muslim males, YOU are safe…..don’t know about your children though…

  3. # terms of reference would never EVAH include Islam

    The “nothing to do with islam” firewall would spring up, along with calls to sue or behead or both, before they left the printshop.

  4. Islam, if nothing else, is a constant source of sick entertainment. Surely, the Monty Python group, in collaboration with David Lynch and maybe Quentin Tarantino, invented Islam when we weren’t looking, just to keep us laughing and disgusted.

  5. @ Mullah: I will borrow your ” The “nothing to do with islam” firewall”

    @ Pray Hard: I think the islamic enterainment is more “Snuff Movie” than Monty Python…

    @ mhajden: my posts often disappear also, not the Sheik’s fault, it seems that sometime the gremlins get into the machine. So, when I don’t forget it, I copy my posts before klicking “publish” and then email them to the Sheik.

    PS: What is it with the spell-checker ? It now automatically corrects me when I deliberately spell “islam” with a minuscule?

  6. Be fair to you mhadjen ??? WHY??? When were muslims ever fair to non-muslims??? Why don’t we do to you what you have been doing to us for the last 1000 years!!!???? You are precisely what I sometimes have to avoid stepping on in the street – most unpleasant on a hot day.

  7. Rita, mhadjen is one of those moronic islamists who are making life difficult for non-muslims in Egypt. What ever difficulties he suffers should be considered as just rewards for a nasty piece of work.

  8. I posted statistics about faggots in Catholic Church who molest children,let me know if anyone wants me to e-mail it.
