After 30 Years, Husband Lifts Wife's Buruga - Faces Divorce...

A 50-year-old Saudi woman asked for divorce after her husband lifted her face veil while she was sleeping, local press reported.

For 30 years, the wife said she never showed her face to her husband in conformity with the tradition of her native village near the south western Saudi city of Khamis Mushayt.

"After all these years, he tries to commit such a big mistake," the wife told Saudi newspaper Al-Riyadh, after she left the house in total disbelief.

She said the husband apologized and promised never to do it again.

This is not the first case of husbands who have not seen their wives' faces in decades.

In the past Al Arabiya has reported the case of Ali al-Qahtani, whose wife had been wearing the face veil for the entire ten years of their marrage. When he tried to take it off, she threatened to leave and only decided to stay after he swore never to try again.

Hassan Al-Atibi threatened to marry another woman if his wife didn't show him her face. The woman nominated one of her friends who doesn't observe this tradition as a possible new wife for him, saying this would be better than her showing her face.

And neither the husband or children of Om Rabea al-Gahdaray, 70, have ever seen her face. Al-Gahdaray says it is a family tradition, also followed by mother and sisters, which her husband accepted and never tried to change.

When asked how she could have kids without her husband ever seeing her face, she replied: "Marriage is about love, not faces."

I wonder if any MV Muslims are following this "tradition"?

    Another case of "only in Saudi". The ugly gene must run in that family. I've heard of in-the-dark sex, but this is the heights of insecurity. Does she think she's handi ganduvaru kalhukamana? "I'll be your cumdump but never ask to look at my face. Or else the deals off".

    Maybe she's Om Rabea al-Kaadarey? In that case, I'll understand.

    I heard that MV Muslims use a hole in the pyjama-abayas of their wives through which they have sex. They are saving the real orgies for Mohamed's paradise.

    Ibn Abbas said "screen them completely except one eye" so that he could use that eye-hole for a squishy tight fuck. It also tells something about his dick size and shape. Freak.

    All what you people knows to do is, to cut and paste things and then to bring it, out of context to decieve the people about the true teachings of Islam. You failed to bring the last paragraph of the article mentioned in the Al Arabiyya Channel. It says:
    "The practice of always remaining veiled, even in front of your husband, is not an Islamic practice but a very old tradition practiced by a minority of people in Gulf countries."
    Islam has nothing to do with these unislamic traditions among the people. If anyone has gone through the Quranic and prophetic texts then he/she will know that this is contrary to islam.
    A famous poet says: "But the eye of hatred always finds fault." Mariyam (Praise be to Allah, who has guided me to the Islam)

    In order to prevent the mischief in the societies there are rules and regulations. No one can blame a country because of few people, who goes against those rules.
    So before rebuking about such things you should have to know those rules and regulations. The same applies to Islam. Islam is based on revealed rules and regulations.

    Regarding veiling Allah says:
    "And tell the believing women (not to the kuffaar nor to the Munaafiqs) to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husband's sons, their brothers or their brother's sons, or their sister's sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islâm), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex." (An-Nur 24:31)

    And also Allah says:
    "Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus), when or how you will, and send (good deeds, or ask Allâh to bestow upon you pious offspring) before you for your ownselves. And fear Allâh, and know that you are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give good tidings to the believers (O Muhammad )." (Al-Baqarah 2:223)

    Allah says regarding people like you: "They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the religion of Islâm, this Qur'ân, and Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allâh will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it)." (As-Saff 61:8)

    Aaishaa - I am satisfied with Islam, as my religion.

    i dont see anyone claiming that this ridiculous custom is islamic. but it doesnt mean islam doesnt have its own embarrasing traditions. like stoning adulterers, keeping concubines, 4 wives for one man, mutilating thieves, the hijab, killing apostates, executing homosexuals, ostracizing transexuals, beating wives, drinking camel urine as medicine, women being deficient in religion and intelligence, virgin-sex as a reward for matyrdom (etc, the newer post on this blog has many such hadith)

    but the eye of love never finds fault right? like they say, love is blind.

    glad you are satisfied with your religion. but please dont except others to follow it or kill those who apostate from it. i dont wanna pray to a god who describes women as tilth, and orders them to be covered as a SHOW of modesty. how humble is that? if you dont like what you see here then dont read it. i am sure your views will be more welcome at any of the thousands of islamic forums you find on the internet.

    i dont see anything that is related or contradicting to islam or its tradition in it. this article particularly says about the tradition of certain place or a country, and the writer shows his dislike to that tradition.this is, i would rather say, a kind of discrimination or stereotyping.

  10. Anonymous2:15 PM

    I see this as a neutral report of a weird tradition. Its not claiming that all Muslims or all Saudis are like that. So its not stereotyping. And its not calling for different treatment of a woman who wears a tent even during sex, no matter how laughable it is. Or even criticizing this behaviour. So how is it discrimination? Its like those odd news reports in the papers. And nothing is above criticism.

    True discrimination is saying women are deficient in intelligence and that her testimony is half of that of a man. (and other sexist norms for travelling, leading prayer, polygamy, awrah) Or the fact that straight sex could be legal (if married) but gay sex could never be legal. Or killing Muslim apostates. But encouraging apostasy from other religions to Islam. Or the fact that Muslims are free to enter any land, but non-Muslims cannot enter Makkah or Madinah. And sprinkling the urine of a boy and washing the urine of a girl for ritual cleanliness. I find these to be discriminating. And the sexist remarks about intelligence and religion to be stereotyping.

    Maldivians are copying things from Arabia - whether they be Islamic or cultural. I will not be surprised to find maldivians pratising this kind of stuff.
    Its also often the case that what one mullah calls cultural is islamic by another mullah.
    The fact is Maldivians are taking up a lot of backward and primitive things that has no place in todays world.
