Dubai: body scanners are un-Islamic

Dubai rules out deployment of full-body scanners

ABU DHABI, July 6 (Xinhua) –– Dubai police said full-body security scanners will not be used at the sheikdom’s airports as the devices do not correspond with national customs and ethics, a local daily of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reported Tuesday.

Strip searches okay, though. I guess the proof is in the pudding……..

  1. 1) Too bad they will be scanned if they wish to enter almost all non muslim countries. Body scanners is a must now for security.
    2) What is the Legal Status of Polygamy in Islam?

    The Verse that allows polygamy “was revealed after the battle of Uhud in which many Muslims were killed, leaving widows and orphans for whom due care was incumbent upon the Muslim survivors.”

    The translation of the verse is as follows: “If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then (marry) only one…” (Qur’an 4:3)

    From this verse a number of facts are evident:

    1 That polygamy is neither mandatory, nor encouraged, but merely permitted.

    2 That the permission to practice polygamy is not associated with mere satisfaction of. Rather, it is associated with compassion towards widows and orphans, a matter that is confirmed by the atmosphere in which the verse was revealed.
    Tunisia & Turkey abolished polygamy.
    Chritianity & Judaism abolished it many centries ago.

  2. Even if full body scanning proves to be completely useless, we should nevertheless proceed with it, as it has the benign side effect of discouraging sand weasels from boarding flights to our free and democratic countries.

  3. suprkufrB: You deserve to be hanged by freedom loving Americans. Do you really believe that you are more deserving of freedom than other human beings?

  4. Self-righteous and ignorant at the same time, americans are making the rest of the western world look bad.

    “almost all non muslim countries” – haha, it might be common on your side of the Atlantic, but as far as Europe goes, you are wrong.

    Just wait, images from these macines will leak, and your naked ass will be all over the internet.
