In Islamic countries you will often find many young boys hanging around Â mosques. When I asked Sam Solomon, an ex-muslim Â recently about whether these Â activities were not promised for the afterlife, he looked at me with puzzlement: “why wait?”
When CNN’s Stan Grant interviewed Â mullah Abdul Aziz, he glossed over it without understanding:Â “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]Â houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.”
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”â€”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 onÂ live Arabic TVÂ 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 anÂ English-language fatwaÂ supporting Sheikh Da‘ud’s assertions. AndÂ hereÂ 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 whyÂ 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”â€”fatwas which seem to get worse with each passing year, such as the recommendation that MuslimsÂ drink camel urinefor its salutary benefits, based on prophet Muhammad’s advice.
