“Fatwa Kiosks” go up at Metro Stations in Cairo

6

Earlier this week, former Muslim and human rights activist Nonie Darwish wrote a piece for us on “crazy Islamic fatwas.” Crazy, maybe; evil, for sure. Young girls, for example, are told to put up with their father’s sexual abuse, but advised her to put up with and respect her father who lost his wife. Living under a death fatwa makes me acutely aware of the power of these deranged Islamic rulings based on the brutal and extreme Shari’ah.

Critics argue that rooting out extremist ideology will not happen in metro stations. Many have slammed Al-Azhar for setting up the booth in a public place, used by all sectors of the Egyptian society, to spread the teachings of Islam.

“This is not its place at all,” said Beshoy Mikhail, a 24-year-old Coptic Christian. “I am completely against the idea.”

Several human rights activists said the move is somewhat discriminatory.

“The state is treating religion as if it is public service,” Ezzat said.

“We see the government feeding more religious education and interference of religion in the day-to-day life,” activist Sherif Azer said. (TOI)

The idea is that fatwa kiosks will  combat “extremism.” That’s like prescribing sex as a cure for nymphomania.

According to Darwish, here is a list of more crazy Islamic fatwas issued in the last few years by prominent Islamic religious leaders:

1-    In a 2000 fatwa entitled “The Transmitted and Sensory Proofs of the Rotation of the Sun and Stillness of the Earth,” Saudi Arabian Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz asserted that the earth was flat and disc-like, and that the sun revolved around it.

2-    Women are prohibited from watching soccer and football in the Arab world, because supposedly all they really care about is looking at men’s thighs and not watching the game.

3-    Men must wear clothes to cover their thighs. Men’s shorts are rarely seen worn by men in the summer heat of the Muslim world.

4-    A Malaysian fatwa banned girls from acting like tomboys as violating Islamic tenets. And a fatwa was issued tennis player Sania Mirza for not wearing proper clothes during her games, thus corrupting Muslim youth.

5-    A fatwa was issued forbidding Pakistani children from 
immunizations because the clerics claim that vaccines 
are a Western conspiracy to make Muslims sterile.

6-    Egypt’s Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa said that drinking the urine of Muhammad is deemed a great blessing and a healing from diseases. After a public outcry, the Mufti recanted, saying it was 
only his “personal opinion.” 


7-    In 2007, Ezzat Attiya issued a fatwa saying that an
adult female can breastfeed an adult male coworker in order to defuse sexual tensions in the office. This ruling is based on the Islamic belief that if a woman breastfeeds a baby that is not hers, she automatically becomes a foster mother to the child.

8-    The former dean of Al-Azhar University, Rashad Hassan Khalil, issued a fatwa saying that a marriage would be considered void if the couple had sex in a naked state.

9-    When a woman was raped by her father-in-law, instead of punishing him, a fatwa said that her husband had now become her son, thus she is divorced from her husband.

10-  In 1988, the publication of Salman Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses led Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini to issue a fatwa of death with a huge bounty against Rushdie. Islam does teach that Muhammad did delete some verses from the Qur’an that were deemed Satanic.

11- Turkey’s top religious authority, the Diyanet, issued a fatwa answering the anonymous question, “Is It Religiously All Right to Lust for My Daughter?” The Diyanet explained, “There is a difference of opinion on the matter among Islam’s different schools of thought…. For some, a father kissing his daughter with lust or caressing her with desire has no effect on the man’s marriage.” But in the Hanafi school of Islamic thought, the mother would be “forbidden” to such a man. And the girl would have to be “over nine years of age.”

The booth in Cairo’s al-Shohada subway station was set up earlier this month by Egypt’s Al-Azhar, the Sunni Muslim world’s foremost religious institution, with the idea to offer Muslim worshipers a way to plug in fast to Islamic teachings — even while commuting to work. More booths are planned for later, at other subway stops.

“Travelers passing through al-Shohada station are being offered chance to get advice from religious scholars inside booth”

The uber-left Guardian reports on this like it is rational and normal. Compare this to their coverage of President Trump.

Egyptian Islamic authority sets up fatwa kiosk in Cairo metro

Travellers passing through al-Shohada station are being offered chance to get advice from religious scholars inside booth

The Guardian, 1 August 2017 17.00 EDT

Sheikhs from Egypt’s highest Islamic authority have opened a fatwa kiosk in the Cairo metro to offer religious advice to commuters in what they say is an effort to counter extremism.

The idea is proving popular with travellers passing through Cairo’s al-Shohada metro station, a busy transport hub, who queue up to sit with a group of religious scholars inside a green patterned booth, sheltered from the bustle of the metro.

“We usually talk about the issues of daily life, and what religion says about such things. The topics we mostly discuss are marriage, divorce and inheritance,” said one sheikh staffing the booth for the morning commute, who declined to be named.

According to al-Azhar al-Sharif, Egypt’s top Islamic body, which installed the booth, the project is intended to correct misinterpretations of Islam. The institution has frequently clashed with the government of the president, Abdel-Fatah al-Sisi, who has repeatedly called for a “religious reformation” in Islam to combat extremism.

Egypt has grappled with a spike in jihadist activity since Sisi came to power in 2013, including a recent string of large-scale attacks on Coptic Christian sites as well as ongoing violence in the Sinai peninsula.

Al-Azhar, established in Cairo in 971 as a centre of Sunni Muslim learning, is hoping that the booth will help steer Egyptians away from extremist thought.

How so when Al Azhar teachesauthentic islam, pure Islam (‘extreme’ Islam).

    Just a matter of time these kisoks are taken over by Muslim brotherhood mullahs who will advice which train and timings are most suited for jihad !

    I guess this will be shown as model way to fight the jihadis and more such kiosks will pop up in EU stations too !

    Bring in the christians, deport the jihadis.

    Dems including Obama have not only denied refugees status to christians from middle east who are real refugee but even have deported christians back to ISIS territory to be slaughtered by ISIS http://tinyurl.com/mtc3xch

    O goody, can we get them over here too? The total absurdity and humour of the insanely idiotic fatwahs would rival “Joke of the day” websites. As the average fatwah is fairly long and filled with inane observations, too much for a fortune cookie. Actually a website would be perfect, that way one could have a laugh at the touch of an app icon.

    Here’s my fatwa, becoming a Muslim is extremely unhealthy and limits mental capacity.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    I’d like a fatwah please — with a side of hummus and pita.
