Apostate: Keep Clothes on for Sex
Cat.: Culture, Egypt, Islam, Religion

Feeling horny? Grab your clothes and keep your eyes off your partner’s privates!
Cairo - An Egyptian cleric’s controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.
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.
COMMENT OF BLOGGER:
Probably keep your eyes closed will do, but if you bang the wall (or something else), don’t come and blame me
Damn, what the hell these guys want us to live like? Everything is Haram, everything is wrong, everything is against God’s well. Why do they rarely tell us anything constructive or useful? Why can’t we have a dozen of Amr Khaled like?
Well, again, like many teachers in our society; who actually goes and study in these religion schools all around the Muslim world? Yes, yeah… I can hear it spin inside your brain. 99% they are the most backward, close-minded, extremist, dumpiest in school, just name it…
And after they finish school, they come out to teach us how we should be living. What should we eat and drink, what we should wear, what we should watch and hear, and finally, how we should make sex. The dumpiest guys teach us all of that and we have to listen and abide to our brilliant clerics.
