Fatwa Bans Men from Being Alone with “˜Handsome Young Boys”

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–”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 on live Arabic TV 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 an English-language fatwa supporting Sheikh Da”˜ud’s assertions. And here 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 why 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–”fatwas which seem to get worse with each passing year, such as the recommendation that Muslims drink camel urine for its salutary benefits, based on prophet Muhammad’s advice.

    What *absolute crap*. Beardless boys don’t have a “touch of temptation in them””instead, that would be the vile old Muslims who want to sexually abuse them.

    But why should their attitude be any different here? After all, these are the same creeps who blame female victims for “tempting” their rapists.

    Ha! Like Wael Ibrashi should talk. He himself is a “beardless boy” who is a little too acquainted with a razor and shaving soap to be considered a good Muslim. You can see him here interviewing Mohammed Morsi:

    With his smooth face and his big doe eyes, I’m sure Sheikh Da”ud and Abu Islam are getting stiffies just looking at him.

    What’s a cure for cancer compared to the imperative of forcing this fellow to grow a beard”or, barring that, donning a Niqab?

    I’ve heard from Westerners who have spent some time among the Arab moslems that if their sheep could speak they would beg for a fatwa making it obligatory for them to wear a niqab.

    Allah knows exactly, how to get new believers by their balls

    Pedophile? No problem! Just marry a six-year-young kid like Muhammad also did

    Desire for animal sex? No problem! Bestiality is allowed in Isalm (Sahih Muslim)

    Only one women is boring? No problem! 4:3 “… Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four” Allah allows it!

    Passion for young boys? No problem! “… Ghilman (Young Boys): In sura: (52:24) Allah promises to supply young diamond-sparkling beautiful boys for some inhabitants of Islamic heavens ….”

    Did Sheikh Abdullah Da “ud forget about “Adult Suckling”? Yes, Male Nursing is … halal!!!

    “When the Holy Prophet (s.a) was born he remained for days without milk. Abu Talib himself breast fed him and Allah sent milk through his nipples.”

    FATWA: all moslem men “should wear the niqab, the face veil”. (goose and gander get the same.) also, men should “drink camel urine”. no problem. with the white house closed to the public, is obama going to spring for any more ramadam dinners? he could serve camel urine. spit & sputtter.

    don’t charge the taxpayers.

  6. says

    And yet Muslims continue to insist that Islam and Muhammad are perfect and must not be criticised. Truly absurd.

    We ex-Muslims living with Islam’s formal and informal death penalty for apostasy know that the cruel cult of Mohammedanism is a ridiculous fraud.

    It is bad enough that Islamic theology permits sex slavery and child molestation, it also makes real friendship impossible.

    The Reality of Friendship in Islam

    Friendship is only possible in Islam if both parties remain in the religion forever. For Muhammad has ordered that Muslims who leave Islam must be killed.

    If there are two Muslims sitting in front of the computer reading this article, they must admit that they should kill their friend if he or she tried to leave Islam.

    Muhammad’s Islam even demands that a Muslim disown his or her family members if they attempt to leave the religion. It says so right in the Quran!

    009.023
    YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong.

    PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers.

    SHAKIR: O you who believe! do not take your fathers and your brothers for guardians if they love unbelief more than belief; and whoever of you takes them for a guardian, these it is that are the unjust.

    Islam is poisonous to human relationships. Whether a person is born into Islam or becomes a Muslim through conversion, they must remain in the religion for the rest of their lives or risk being killed by their former Muslim “brothers and sisters”. Muhammad said that those who leave Islam should be killed:

    Hadith, Sahih Bukhari: Vol.9, Bk.84, No.57:

    Narrated “Ikrima:
    Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to “Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn “Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, “Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

    In Chapter 004, Verses 088 through 091 of the Quran, it also states that apostates should be killed.

    And these are supposedly the words of the creator of this vast and beautiful universe? Not a chance. Let us consider Verse 009.023 of the Quran and its meaning for a moment before delving further into the topic of friendship in Islam.

    In Verse 009.023 of the Quran, Muhammad is claiming that God has commanded him to inform “his followers” that they must rank Islam ahead of their own family in importance. In other words, Muhammad has said that Muslims should kill or disown their own family members should they simply choose not to remain Muslim. At minimum the family member is to be heartlessly ostracized.

    Can you imagine being a Muslim parent or child and having to obey this verse should the reality arise within your own family? This tragic situation has arisen within millions of Muslims families throughout the centuries, and millions have been killed by their own families due to Islamic apostacy laws. Such is the sickening legacy of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Let us now consider friendship in Muhammad’s Islam:

    First let us consider the reality of friendship amongst Muslims themselves. This topic concerned me greatly when I was a Muslim. For inside I knew the answers to the questions I was asking myself – and the truth was deeply disturbing. Some of the questions I asked myself were as follows:

    If I were to leave Islam would my Muslim friends have to dump ME?

    Does this mean that if one of my Muslim friends chose to leave Islam that I would have to dump THEM?

    The answers to these fundamental questions helped open the door for me and leave Muhammad’s Islam. This and other “Islamic realities” led me to a critical study of Islam that helped free me from its perverse falsehood.

    Obviously real friendship is profound and is to be highly respected and cherished. Many know how important friendship is to human health, happiness and our general development as individuals. Tragically, there can be no genuine friendship in Islam. Many Muslims still do not understand this basic fact. Let me explain why.

    Muslim-to-Muslim friendship is contingent upon adherence to Islam. In other words, if a Muslim simply chooses to leave Islam for his own reasons his Muslim friends are obliged to consider him a traitor to the Muslim Ummah, an enemy of god, and a worthless failure. And, of course, an Apostate that should be killed.

    Now let us look to Islam’s “holy book,” the Quran, and see what it has to say regarding friendship:

    003.028
    Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.

    005.051
    O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

    005.080
    Thou seest many of them turning in friendship to the Unbelievers. Evil indeed are (the works) which their souls have sent forward before them (with the result), that Allah’s wrath is on them, and in torment will they abide.

    058.014
    Turnest thou not thy attention to those who turn (in friendship) to such as have the Wrath of Allah upon them? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to falsehood knowingly.

    060.013
    O ye who believe! Turn not (for friendship) to people on whom is the Wrath of Allah, of the Hereafter they are already in despair, just as the Unbelievers are in despair about those (buried) in graves.

    In closing, Islam’s treatment of friendship is obviously severely perverse. Upon close inspection, Islam is the obvious fraud of a very, very deranged con man.

    During the war, post el-Alamein my father was transfered from the Royal Artillery to a base outside Alexandria.

    Basically a huge compound full of wrecked, semi wrecked and burnt out vehicles which were to be, either refurbished or used for spares to be sent to Italy.

    One Saturday night he was winding up and chatting to one of the Egyptian helpers asked him what he was doing for the night.

    The man leered, saying he was going to find a boy.

    My dad, unnacustomed as he was to such ‘perverse lewdity’ then asked, why not a woman?

    With that the Arab circled his left forefinger and thumb and inserting his right forefinger (I think you get the picture) uttered, nice and tight.

    Logdon senior, raised in the fastness of a prudish Christian society never forgot this instructive episode, and I’d guess that from that day on he viewed the Egyptians as a bunch of raving poofters.

    Judging by this tale, he wasn’t too far wrong.

    So next time we hear the imam calls, fling the homosexuals off the mountain, can it be assumed that the bearded one harbours secret longings and that his death chants are merely window dressing?

    Or as Shakespeare would have it,’protestething too much’?

    Islam – where there is no self-control,
    where there is only the whip and the lash and the sword and the rock…, and the mask and the garbage bag.

  9. says

    It’s all in the proclivities…Allah gives the pious lots of those as tests…one of those is the proclivity for forbidden fruit…The idea behind inner struggle jihad, is to get rid of those proclivities because it is those that stand between the pious and purity…Avoidance helps but it is not the cure…The tendency to have these tendencies is still there…What the pious should do is surround themselves with shaved boys pure as pearls to test their resolve…Gandhi slept with naked girls to test his own resolve and purity…look what it did for him…Clerics wish to hide their forbidden proclivities by covering up the source…but Allah see’s right through the cover up, and writes ‘failure’ next to the clerics name on the tablet of destiny…A little more inner spiritual struggle could fix that…

    Forgive my being blunt but is it any wonder why almost all informed Western homosexuals tilt at the windmill of imaginary persecution by Christians but utterly ignore the homosexual-killing animalism of Islamic teaching?

    I believe the answer is that they secretly desire what this article hints at: Worldwide Islamic *practice* (in denial of Islamic doctrine) freely allows rampant sodomy so long as it is kept under the radar.

    So, the otherwise enlightened Western homosexuals surmise, the public hanging or stoning of a few tokens is a price well worth the UNLIMITED, UNRESTRICTED sodomy available under the Caliphate. Even better: it is far more preferable to living in a free society where these pestilent Christians can freely offend them at will with Word of the saving Gospel.

    Given the choice, many of them will take Islam, hands down, gladly.

    That’s my hypothesis, anyway.

  11. says

    Hard to believe that there are over a billion Muslims backward and ignorant enough to believe this salacious perversion is an integral part of their faith. It is no wonder that extreme cruelty, fear, terrorism is required to hold this cult together.

  12. says

    but they have the same escapist attitude as do Christians about Christian abuses going on, ‘over there’…Its not going on over here…
    Anything beyond that gets a blank stare…

    I’m glad we don’t know the same Christians.

    I wonder whether there’s a brisk trade in fake beards and stick-on moustaches for those young men who *don’t* like being propositioned by bearded sleazy elders?

    Saleem, you’ve recounted very valid and important criticisms of Islam.

    I have brought up the subject with my two adult gay nephews and one of their partners…They hear this is going on and they don’t like it, but they have the same escapist attitude as do Christians about Christian abuses going on, ‘over there’…Its not going on over here…
    Anything beyond that gets a blank stare…

    I don’t believe that, grom. I live in the San Francisco bay area, and until recently lived just blocks from the Castro District in the city. Most gays are very “politically correct” and have no clue at all about Islam.

    I do have one friend who is gay and Jewish and *very* staunchly Anti-Jihad, and it drives him nuts that so many gays”and liberal Jews”know nothing about the Jihad threat and seem content to remain in “blissful” ignorance.

    But ignorance”even willful ignorance”is *very* different from actually enabling Islam. I think you would find very few gays who would actually embrace “The Religion of Peace” if they understood its horrors

  17. says

    GROM, your hypothesis makes sense to me. for some time now, i’ve thought homosexuals and islamists are cut from the same cloth, just sewed up in different styles.
