This is ludicrous, yes, but notice that when the man who accuses this woman of sin, he is doing so because he thought of sex when she said “virgin.” She was responsible for thoughts that came into his mind. This is akin to the mindset behind the hijab: a woman must cover herself in order to take away the cause of a man’s temptation, and if he is tempted anyway, it’s her fault. The responsibility is always on the woman, never on the man. So this is not only ludicrous, but profoundly misogynistic, and deeply Islamic.
“A Muslim woman has been accused of committing a sin for posting a picture of olive oil because it contained the word ‘virgin,'” by Gareth Davies, Mailonline, October 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A Muslim woman has been accused of committing a sin for posting a picture of olive oil because it contained the word ‘virgin’.
The woman, whose Twitter profile features the flags of Jordan, Palestine and New Zealand, posted the picture on Snapchat and immediately received a reply from one of her followers.
She took a screen shot of the response and posted it to Twitter with the caption, ‘I sent a picture of extra virgin olive oil.. the akhis really wildin’ out’, referring to Muslim brothers as akhis.
Yes, uh, that’s what the word means.
The man, who was later identified by the woman, said: ‘You shouldn’t send pictures like that because it contains words like ‘virgin’ and that makes a man think of actions that you may have committed.’
He later tried to backtrack stating his message was only a ‘naseehah’, which is an Arabic word for advice.
‘Dear sister. I was simply giving you sincere advice privately,’ he wrote on Twitter.
‘There is no need to expose these things.’…
