In case you needed another reason to just say no to Islam, here’s another. From LGF:
The former dean of 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”.
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.
What is up with these creepy guys’ obsession with this stuff? Why the micro managing? Aren’t there plenty of other deviant things out there to issue fatwa’s against like smiling at babies, going to a petting zoo or riding merry go rounds?
