Divorce by Text Messaging as Islam Meets Technology...

Divorce actually means more than an end of marriage - it causes untold mental anguish, especially if the spouse never saw it coming.

Nodira knew that life would be difficult when her husband left their home in Tajikistan for a job packing lorries in distant Russia, but they had two children and needed the money to survive.

What she never imagined was that their marriage would end, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with the tinny beep of a message on the inbox of her mobile phone.

"Talaq, talaq, talaq" -- three short Arabic words flashed across the tiny screen and 29-year-old Nodira was divorced.

Islamic Scholar Describes The Virgins Of Paradise -

"They are White Women who are Menstruation-Free, Free of Feces, Urine, Phlegm"....

In Paradise, One Has the Strength of 100 Men in Eating, Drinking, and Sex.

Interviewer: How does one conduct relationships in Paradise – whether with the black-eyed virgins or with Muslim women who entered Paradise?

Muhammad Al-Munajid: Allah said that the black-eyed virgins are beautiful white young women, with black pupils and very white retinas, whose skin is so delicate and bright that it causes confusion. Allah said that they are like hidden pearls. They have wide eyes, and they have not been touched by man or jinn. They are virgins, who yearn for their husbands. They are all the same age, morally and physically beautiful. They are like precious gems and pearls in their splendor, their clarity, their purity, and their whiteness. They are like hidden pearls – as pure as a pearl within a shell, untouched by man. Each one of them is so beautiful that you can see the bone-marrow through the delicate flesh on their legs.

Such brilliant beauty does not exist in this world. Where can you find such beauty? Whereas the women of this world may suffer, for days and nights, from menstruation, from blood for 40 days after childbirth, from vaginal bleeding and from diseases – the women of Paradise are pure, unblemished, menstruation-free, free of feces, urine, phlegm, children... Moreover, Allah cleaned them of all impure and foul things, both in appearance and character. In character, they are not jealous, hateful, or angry. They are not greedy.

Old people can legally "marry" children in 100% Muslim Maldives..

All it requires is permission of their parents and state consent!

Speaking to Minivan News today, Fathimath Yumna, director of the department of gender, said the ministry of health and family had also been unable to confirm reports about the illegal marriage.

While the national age of marriage is 18 in the Maldives, as a Muslim country, girls under this age can marry with the permission of their parents and state consent.

Yumna said if a minor wished to marry, the ministry would undertake an assessment to ensure the physical and mental well-being of the child.

Ramazan — the toughest month for the poor

"Those who engage in and benefit from price hike are Muslims who also claim to be fasting and seeking absolution from worldly vices. In practice, they show little compassion. . ."

MANY workers providing services to the affluent by stitching dresses, ironing clothes or working as salesmen at fabric shops cannot afford these luxuries for their own families because of extremely low wages.

Sakina is a widow who looks after her two minor boys, a grown up daughter who is mentally retarded and a married daughter who visits her twice a week with her child and husband. She irons dresses in her one room house for wealthy families in the neighbourhood. The cost of electricity has doubled but the amount that she gets for pressing a dress has not increased proportionately. In Ramazan, she works 18 hours a day to cope with higher demand.

Yet she and her children rarely wear clothes that are ironed. To her dismay, the additional income she generated this year was consumed in buying high priced food items. She could not afford to stand in a queue the whole day at bazaars opened by the Punjab government.

Mumtaz stitches women’s dresses round the year but overworks in Ramazan to cope with higher demand. Yet she hardly saves enough to afford a new dress for herself. She is in her late forties and is unmarried. She looks after her younger brother and lives in a rented house.

Akbar is a salesman at a cloth shop at Anarkali. He has to work extra hours throughout Ramazan. His monthly salary is Rs 6,000 that is high by market standards.

He, however, can not afford to buy fabric for dresses of his two younger sisters. He did not earn extra overtime in the fasting month as he is asked to come to the shop at 1 pm and leave after 12 hours at 1 am which is routine working time for all salesmen.

Increase in the prices of essential food items is an unfortunate tradition in Ramazan, effectively making this month the most expensive of the year. Yet local incomes are well below a living wage and it is difficult to see how in such circumstances a believer can honestly and adequately provide for his or her family during this month.

In much the same vein, it is not clear how one can extend a sense of generosity to others when their own personal needs are far from being met.

Those who engage in and benefit from price hike are Muslims who also claim to be fasting and seeking absolution from worldly vices. In practice, they show little compassion for those who have to pay high prices for food commodities or for those less well off, who may in addition have large families to feed.

The manner in which alms is administered by these rich families renders redundant the concept of respecting another’s dignity and confidentiality. They rather engage in an arrogant display of wealth with very little intention to make a difference.

Why Mock Islam? Because it is therapeutic!

Mocking is a very powerful way to convince
those who are unwilling to think to do it. Shame is a great motivator.

Muhammad suffered from malignant narcissistic personality disorder. His
followers, to the degree that they emulate him, think like him and try
to behave like him, have entered into his narcissistic bubble universe
and have become narcissists by extension. This happens to all cultists.
In all cults, the insanity of the guru reflects on the followers who
surrender their intelligence to him and follow him unquestioningly and

The narcissists feel grandiose and self-important. They want to be
acknowledged without commensurate merit. They want recognition and
preferential treatment. They expect respect without feeling any
obligation to reciprocate. They get their sense of self- importance by
putting you down, criticizing you, decrying your world and disparaging
your values, but you are not allowed to slight them. It is okay for
them to violate your rights, abuse you and even kill you, but you are
not supposed to mistreat them in the slightest way. In fact, they
demand privileges that are not available to others. What they want is
your submission. That is what Islam is all about - submission.

Never comply

The narcissists are bullies. They should not get what they want or they
become emboldened and demand more. They will never be satisfied. The
more you give in, the more demanding they become. They can never have
enough narcissistic supplies. It is a mistake to give in to their
caprices and comply with their demands.

The narcissist takes himself too seriously. He lacks self-esteem and
what he dreads most is humiliation. For him, image is everything. He
attacks you, verbally, physically, or both. He highlights your faults
and belittles you. By doing so he feels better about his own failures.
He hides behind a false image of self righteousness. That image must be
destroyed and the way to do that is through ridicule.

Charlie Chaplin knew the great power of ridicule. A strong opponent of
racism, in 1937 Chaplin decided to make a film on the dangers of
fascism. As Chaplin pointed out in his autobiography, attempts were
made to stop the film being made: "Half-way through making The Great
Dictator I began receiving alarming messages from United Artists. They
had been advised by the Hays Office that I would run into censorship
trouble. Also the English office was very concerned about an
anti-Hitler picture and doubted whether it could be shown in Britain .
But I was determined to go ahead, for Hitler must be laughed at."
(Charles Chaplin, My Autobiography- 1964)

Just like in the thirties, today there are many useful idiots who
defend Islam, apply censorship and try to silence its critics. These
fools must be put to shame too.

Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is not a laughing
matter. Mock Muhammad and Islam as this will eventually help the
Muslims get rid of their cult. They must feel embarrassed for calling
themselves Muslim.

This therapy works. I have seen it work many times. Intelligent people,
who at first defend Islam, feel embarrassed to be called Muslims, once
they see the stupidity of this cult, and claim they are not Muslims.
They try to dissociate themselves from it. At first this distancing
may not be heartfelt, but the very fact that they prefer to hide their
real sentiment about Islam because they are embarrassed of it is the
first step -a very important one - for them to leave Islam in reality.
It is just a matter of time that they cut their umbilical cords from it
and get rid of this cult completely.

Today Muslims become angry if you ridicule their faith, but once they
are free from this bondage of the mind they will thank you for it.

"Allah's Plan for the Gay Man"

This isn't exactly "Queer eye for the Straight Guy."
"Truth be told, Islamist society is a homophobic world and its getting worse as more countries are taken over by Muslim fundamentalists"

We present this article with thanks to YID With LID

Homophobia in the Islamic World: The Religion of Oppression

"Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes.... It is a vile perversion that goes against sound nature, and is one of the most corrupting and hideous sins.... The punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed whether or not they have previously had sexual intercourse in the context of a legal marriage.... Some of the companions of the Prophet stated that [the perpetrator] is to be burned with fire. It has also been said that he should be stoned, or thrown from a high place." Saudi Textbook Jurisprudence (Fiqh)

When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at Columbia University two years ago, declared that there were no Homosexuals in Iran. Many people (including me) thought it a joke. The real reason the Iranian mass-murderer said that there were no Homosexuals in Iran is that being gay in Iran is a capital offense punishable by death.

But its not just Iran and Saudi Arabia, Homosexuality is a crime in most of the fundamental Islamic world
According to a pamphlet produced by Al-Fatiha, there is a consensus among Islamic scholars that all humans are naturally heterosexual. Homosexuality is seen by scholars to be a sinful and perverted deviation from the norm.

All Islamic schools of thought and jurisprudence consider gay acts to be unlawful. The Companions of Prophet Muhammad held various views concerning punishment. The fatwa cited by states:

"....this led to different views maintained by Muslim Jurists. For example:

  • In the Hanafi school of thought, the homosexual is punished through harsh beating, and if he/she repeats the act, death penalty is to be applied.
  • As for the Shafi`i school of thought, the homosexual receives the same punishment of adultery (if he/she is married) or fornication (if not married). This means, that if the homosexual is married, he/she is stoned to death, while if single, he/she is whipped 100 times.

Truth be told, Islamist society is a homophobic world and its getting worse as more countries are taken over by Muslim fundamentalists:

Wave of Homophobia Sweeps the Muslim World By Juliane von Mittelstaedt and Daniel Steinvorth
In most Islamic countries, gay men and women are ostracized, persecuted and in some cases even murdered. Repressive regimes are often fanning the flames of hatred in a bid to outdo Islamists when it comes to spreading "moral panic."

Young Christian man accused of blasphemy killed in prison

Divehi Christians are afraid of being murdered. Even here in the blogosphere, there are calls to murder those who 'insult Islam". To these Good Muslims just about anything can be a Challenge to Allah deserving of a death sentence...That is why you never hear from or get to know a Divehi Christian.

The young Christian man who was arrested on 12 September in a village in Punjab accused of blasphemy was killed last night in prison. Police had Fanish, 20, remanded into their custody in order to continue their investigation. This morning prison guards in Sialkot district prison found the lifeless body of the young man with visible signs of injuries.

For Nadeem Anthony, member of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), his death was judicial murder. Condemning in the strongest terms the latest anti-Christian outrage, the activist told AsiaNews that for police the young committed suicide by hanging himself in jail, something that for him does not make sense. Instead, “it is a torture killing” because “we can see signs of torture on his body in the picture.”

AsiaNews also received photos of the lifeless body. In it the type of injuries that can be seen appear unrelated to strangulation by hanging.

The body is at the disposal of the legal authority, which has ordered an autopsy at Sialkot’s Civil Hospital.

Fanish (pictured in prison) was arrested last Saturday after accusations of blasphemy were made against him. A day earlier a Muslim mob had gathered in front of the church in the village of Jaithikey, not far from the town of Samberial, in the district of Sialkot (Punjab), to teach the local Christian community a “lesson”.

Extremists damaged the building before setting it on fire. They also pillaged two homes near the church.

A relationship between the 20-year-old Christian man and a young Muslim woman appears to be the cause of the turn of events.

Fanish was accused of provoking the young woman and of throwing away a copy of the Qur‘an she had in her hands.

Fr Emmanuel Yousaf Mani, director of the National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) of the Catholic Church, said that “Muslims cannot stand the idea that a Muslim woman might fall in love with a Christian.

Why Divehi Christians are hiding....

Divehi Christians are in hiding. And for good reason. Islam and Muslims are not really as tolerant as they say they are....

A convert from Islam who has led a push for Muslim-Christian understanding in Ethiopia has been in jail for nearly four months since his arrest for “malicious” distribution of Bibles.

Christian sources in Ethiopia said that, contrary to Ethiopian law, 39-year-old Bashir Musa Ahmed has not been formally charged since his arrest on May 23 in Jijiga, capital of Somali Region Zone Five, a predominantly Muslim area in eastern Ethiopia. Zonal police arrested him after he was accused of providing Muslims with Somali-language Bibles bearing covers that resemble the Quran, the sources said.

An Ethiopian national, Ahmed is known as a bold preacher of Christianity and is credited with opening discussion of the two faiths between Christian and Muslim leaders. He is well-known in the area as a scholar of Islam, but his case has gone largely unreported in Ethiopia.

A source who requested anonymity said authorities likely are secretly planning to transfer Ahmed from his Jijiga cell to Ghagahbur jail some 200 kilometers away near the Somali border, in part to prevent other Christians from visiting him and in part because he has not been charged.

The source told Compass that Ahmed’s own relatives and tribe instigated the arrest with the intent of stopping him from spreading Christianity in the region, whose 5 million predominantly Muslim inhabitants are mainly of Somali origin.

“The Ethiopian constitution allows for religious tolerance,” said the source, “but to date Ahmed has not been taken to court. He is still in the cell now, going on the fourth month, which is quite unusual for an Ethiopian nationality and the constitutional requirements.”

For providing Bibles with cover pages resembling the Quran, Ahmed is accused of “maliciously” distributing Bibles and trying to convert Muslims to Christianity, although conversion and manifesting one’s faith are not illegal in Ethiopia. At issue is whether the Bibles with covers resembling the Quran violate copyright issues and disrespect Islam.

Christian converts in the area said the kind of Bible that Ahmed distributed is widely available on the market in Ethiopia and is commonly used by Somali Christians inside and outside of the country.

Following a recent visit to Ahmed, the source said he looked strong in faith but seemed to have lost weight and was in need of clothes.

“I am doing fine here in prison, but it is a bit unfortunate that some of my close friends who claimed to advocate and serve the persecuted Christians have not come to see me,” Ahmed told the source. “I am thankful for those who have taken their time to come and see me as well as advocate for my release.”

Sources said hostility toward those spreading faith different from Islam is a common occurrence in Muslim dominated areas of Ethiopia and neighboring countries. Christians are subject to harassment and intimidation, they said, to stem a rising number of Muslim converts.

Burqa-clad jihadists will make an attack here in Maldives...

Wake and smell the odors from inside the buruga of a Muslim woman in the sunny warm Maldives. It is coming. Burugas will be used by Jihadists to mount terrorist attacks here in Maldives - unless we ban the crazy Muslim Portable Tent of Oppression and Gender Apartheid in public.

Islamic militants clad head-to-toe in women's burqas attempted to attack an oil-storage facility in Karachi, raising fears that insurgents are fleeing northwestern Pakistan and infiltrating the nation's main business hub.

Three gunmen disguised as women tried to enter the high-security terminal used by oil companies late Monday night, Waseem Ahmed, the city police chief, told Pakistani television on Tuesday. Police say they suspect the assailants disguised themselves as women to try to slip past security checkpoints.

When stopped by security guards, the militants opened fire, killing one guard. The assailants fled during a gun battle, leaving behind the burqas, purses and hand grenades.

"We suspect they wanted to carry out a big terrorist attack which our prompt police action thwarted," said Mr. Ahmed in an interview with Geo TV Pakistan.

Pakistan imports foreign oil through the Karachi port, and stores it there before transporting it throughout the country. An attack on the port facility could have threatened the fuel supply for the country's industry and transport, just as Pakistan's economy is struggling to recover from the global downturn and security woes at home.

Later Tuesday, police arrested four men suspected of involvement in the attack. During a raid on a house in Karachi, where the arrests took place, police found additional burqas, women's handbags and weapons, Mr. Ahmed said in the television interview.

12-Year-Old Child Bride Dies in Childbirth Labor...

A 12-year-old Yemeni child-bride died after struggling for three days in labor to give birth, a local human rights organization said Saturday.

Fawziya Abdullah Youssef died of severe bleeding on Friday while giving birth to a stillborn in the al-Zahra district hospital of Hodeida province, 140 miles (223 kilometers) west of the capital San'a.

Child marriages are widespread in Yemen, the Arab world's poorest country, where tribal customs dominate society. More than a quarter of the country's females marry before age 15, according to a recent report by the Social Affairs Ministry.

Youssef was only 11 when her father married her to a 24-year-old man who works as a farmer in Saudi Arabia, said Ahmed al-Quraishi, chairman of Siyaj human rights organization, which promotes the rights of children in Yemen.

Al-Quraishi said that he stumbled upon Youssef in the hospital while investigating cases of children who had fled from the fighting in the north.

"This is one of many cases that exist in Yemen," said al-Quraishi. "The reason behind it is the lack of education and awareness, forcing many girls into marriage in this very early age."

Impoverished parents in Yemen sometimes give away their young daughters in return for hefty dowries. There is also a long-standing tribal custom in which infant daughters and sons are promised to cousins in hopes it will protect them from illicit relationships, he said.

Maldivians leave the path of Darma and ape the Arabs in their treatment of guest workers

“They were often only provided porridge for breakfast and as for the rest of their meals, they have to rely on their own catch of fish. They only get drinkable water from rainfalls. Some (have) even thought of stealing drinking water," said Myrna Grimaldo, wife of one of the distressed workers, during a press conference held Tuesday by Migrante International in Quezon City.

I have been worried for a long time, about the way foreigners are treated in the Maldives.

Bad treatment of foreigners is common in Arab states.

Consistent ill-treatment of foreigners does not go very well with the idea of democratic rule.

However, it goes very well with autocracy.

Maldivians think they can humiliate poor south Indians and Bangladeshi's. Well now have a real taste of the bitter far east!

Moshaibism said...

We can't provide basic human rights as long as we believe in supremacy. Most of us think that we are superior to all. The only people to whom we give good treatment is Arabs because they are one step higher than us. So forget about giving any good treatments to Kaffiru. Try to be on the side of Arabs.

Muhammad Rasoolallah's Crazy Thoughts About Animals

According to the prophet of Islam, petting the snake does cause blindness. He didn't much care for dogs, donkeys or women either.

Master Muhammad seemed to fear and hate certain snakes, dogs, donkeys, monkeys, pigs, crows, scorpions, etc. The guy was a pretty messed-up dude---I’m guessing…

According to the Islamic texts Muhammad feared and hated many animals.

Apparently Muhammad had many "strange" ideas about animals. His ideas bring into question the sanity of the individual.

This article will consider the many odd statements that Muhammad uttered regarding animals. We will look at the seemingly crazy statements made by Muhammad in both the Hadith and the Quran.

As shown in the passages below, Master Muhammad seemed to fear and hate certain snakes, dogs, donkeys, monkeys, pigs, crows, scorpions, etc. The guy was a pretty messed-up dude I’m guessing…

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 518:

Narrated Ibn Umar:
That he heard the Prophet delivering a sermon on the pulpit saying, “Kill snakes and kill Dhu-at-Tufyatain (i.e. a snake with two white lines on its back) and ALBATROSS (i.e. a snake with short or mutilated tail) for they destroy the sight of one’s eyes and bring about abortion.” (’Abdullah bin ‘Umar further added): Once while I was chasing a snake in order to kill it, Abu Lubaba called me saying: “Don’t kill it,” I said. “Allah’s Apostle ordered us to kill snakes.” He said, “But later on he prohibited the killing of snakes living in the houses.” (Az-Zubri said. “Such snakes are called Al-Awamir.”)

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 529:

Narrated Abu Mulaika:
Ibn Umar used to kill snakes, but afterwards he forbade their killing and said, “Once the Prophet pulled down a wall and saw a cast-off skin of a snake in it. He said, ‘Look for the snake. ‘They found it and the Prophet said, “Kill it.” For this reason I used to kill snakes. Later on I met Abu Lubaba who told me the Prophet said, ‘Do not kill snakes except the short-tailed or mutilated-tailed snake with two white lines on its back, for it causes abortion and makes one blind. So kill it.’ ”

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 530:

Narrated Nafi:
Ibn ‘Umar used to kill snakes but when Abu Lubaba informed him that the Prophet had forbidden the killing of snakes living in houses, he gave up killing them.

Yeah, those short-tailed and mutilated-tailed snakes with the two white lines on their backs are blinding people and causing abortions all over the place, you bet! We had better take Muhammad’s advice and kill, kill, kill them wherever we find them. I wonder how we’d get by without the priceless advice of Master Muhammad the master snake-oil salesman of them all. Gee I wonder if the world would be better off had he never lived… Ya think??

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490:

Narrated ‘Aisha:
The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away, for I disliked to face him.”

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 498:

Narrated ‘Aisha:
It is not good that you people have made us (women) equal to dogs and donkeys. No doubt I saw Allah’s Apostle praying while I used to lie between him and the Qibla and when he wanted to prostrate, he pushed my legs and I withdrew them.

Sahih Muslim, Book 004, Number 1032:

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil.

Sahah Muslim, Book 024, Number 5249:

Abu Talha reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) having said: Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.

Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3811:

Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.

Sahih Muslim, Book 002, Number 0551:

Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.

I have often wondered how many of Muhammad’s followers knew that he was insane but had to keep quiet about it knowing that they would be killed should they talk.

Just imagine being a sincere and independent-minded person and having to keep your mouth shut while watching Muhammad raid, loot and slaughter a village and then take the best looking women as captives for himself.

Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 34, Number 437:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet came to Khaibar and when Allah made him victorious and he conquered the town by breaking the enemy’s defense, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtab was mentioned to him and her husband had been killed while she was a bride. Allah’s Apostle selected her for himself and he set out in her company till he reached Sadd-ar-Rawha’ where her menses were over and he married her. Then Hais (a kind of meal) was prepared and served on a small leather sheet (used for serving meals). Allah’s Apostle then said to me, “Inform those who are around you (about the wedding banquet).” So that was the marriage banquet given by Allah’s Apostle for (his marriage with) Safiya. After that we proceeded to Medina and I saw that Allah’s Apostle was covering her with a cloak while she was behind him. Then he would sit beside his camel and let Safiya put her feet on his knees to ride (the camel).

Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 34, Number 438:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
I heard Allah’s Apostle, in the year of the Conquest of Mecca, saying, “Allah and His Apostle made illegal the trade of alcohol, dead animals, pigs and idols.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What about the fat of dead animals, for it was used for greasing the boats and the hides; and people use it for lights?” He said, “No, it is illegal.” Allah’s Apostle further said, “May Allah curse the Jews, for Allah made the fat (of animals) illegal for them, yet they melted the fat and sold it and ate its price.”

Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 1, Number 0066:

Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri:
The people asked the Messenger of Allah (peace_be_upon_him): Can we perform ablution out of the well of Buda’ah, which is a well into which menstrual clothes, dead dogs and stinking things were thrown? He replied: Water is pure and is not defiled by anything.

Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537:

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said “If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease.”

In the Quran, Muhammad stated that his god literally turns human beings into apes and pigs. Such manipulative madness from the mouth of the Islamic prophet is still believed by Muslims today!

Quran, 5:60:

Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah? those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!”

Quran, 2:65:

You have heard of those of you that broke the Sabbath (Jews). We said to them: ‘You shall be changed into detested apes.’ We made their fate an example to their own generation and to those who followed them, and a lesson for the righteous.

In conclusion, all it takes is some honesty and a sane mind to understand the fact that Muhammad was a liar and a nut.

Breaking Wind

Allah thought of everything - although we aren't sure why he would afflict one of his devotees with flatulence if it keeps her out of a mosque.

She passes wind continually; does this mean she cannot go to the mosque?

Am I not allowed to pray in the mosque, because I suffer from constant emission of wind that does not have a smell? How often do I have to do wudoo' in order to offer obligatory and naafil prayers?

Praise be to Allaah.


Emission of wind invalidates wudoo', because of the report narrated by al-Bukhaari (135) from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “No prayer will be accepted from one who is in a state of minor impurity until he does wudoo’.” A man from Hadramawt said: What is minor impurity, O Abu Hurayrah? He said: Breaking wind silently or loudly.

Breaking wind is of two types:


Where there is a time when it stops, such as if it was coming out, then it stops for a while during which one can do wudoo' and pray. In this case, you have to do wudoo' and pray during the time when it stops.


Where it is continual and there is no time when it stops, rather it may come out at any time. In this case you should do wudoo' for every prayer after the time for that prayer begins, and pray the obligatory prayer and whatever naafil prayers you want with this wudoo’, and whatever wind comes out will not affect you, even if that is during prayer.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

If a person cannot remain in a state of purity for the length of the prayer, he should do wudoo' and pray, and it will not matter if anything comes out of him during the prayer, and this wudoo' will not be invalidated by that, according to the consensus of the imams. The most he has to do is do wudoo' for each prayer. End quote from Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 21/221.

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (5/411):

The basic principle is that emission of wind invalidates wudoo', but if it comes out of a person constantly, he has to do wudoo' for each prayer when he wants to pray, then if it comes out of him whilst he is praying, it will not invalidate the prayer and he has to continue his prayer until he completes it, as a concession from Allah to His slaves and so as to relieve them of hardship, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Allaah intends for you ease”

[al-Baqarah 2:185]

“and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship”

If what comes out has an unpleasant smell, it is not permissible for you to go to the mosque, because of the annoyance that this will cause to the worshippers and the angels.

Al-Bukhaari (5452) and Muslim (564) narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever eats garlic or onions, let him keep away from us, or keep away from our mosque and stay in his house.” According to a version narrated by Muslim: “Whoever eats onions or garlic or leeks, let him not come near our mosque, for the angels are offended by the same things that offend the sons of Adam.”

Muslim (567) narrated that ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: O people, you eat two plants which I find to be nothing but repugnant, this onion and garlic. I remember the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), if he noticed their smell coming from a man in the mosque, he would issue orders that he taken out to al-Baqee’. Whoever eats them, let him cook them to death.”

This indicates that it is obligatory to keep the mosque free of offensive odours and to prevent the one who has such an odour from coming to the mosque or staying in it.

It says in Kashshaaf al-Qinaa’ (2/365): It is Sunnah to protect every mosque from all kinds of dirt, filth, mucus, nail clippings and hair removed by clipping the moustache, shaving the head or plucking the armpits, because the mosques were not built for that. It is also Sunnah to protect it from offensive smells such as onion, garlic, leeks and similar things, even if there is no one in the mosque, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “the angels are offended by the same things that offend the sons of Adam.” (Narrated by Ibn Maajah); and he said: “Whoever eats from these two plants, let him not come near our place of prayer.” and according to another report: “…let him not come near our mosques.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi who said: It is hasan saheeh.

If a person who has eaten that – i.e., one who has an offensive smell of garlic and onions and the like – enters the mosque, it is strongly recommended to remove him, so as to remove the offensive thing.

By analogy, this also applies to one who passes wind from his backside in the mosque, because that annoys others with the smell. So it is Sunnah to protect the mosque from that and to make him leave for that reason. End quote.

But if the wind has no offensive smell, there is no reason why you should not enter the mosque and sit there. Imam al-Bukhaari (may Allah have mercy on him) said in his Saheeh: Chapter on breaking wudoo’ whilst in the Mosque.

Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Fath al-Baari:

What he (meaning al-Bukhaari) meant was that it is permissible to deliberately break one’s wudoo’ (pass wind) in the mosque because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) mentioned it and did not forbid it, rather he stated that it interrupts the prayer of the angels.

Al-Hasan, ‘Ata’ and Ishaaq stated that there is a concession allowing deliberately breaking wudoo’ in the mosque.

It was stated above that it is permissible to sleep in the mosque in the case of necessity, and there is no difference of opinion on this point. That includes the sleep of the person who is observing i’tikaaf, because it is essential to the validity of his i’tikaaf, and it is also permissible in cases other than cases of necessity according to the majority, and it is most likely that one may pass wind whilst sleeping. So if it were not allowed to pass wind in the mosque, it would not be allowed to sleep in the mosque in any situation, but this is contrary to the texts and to scholarly consensus. End quote.

And Allah knows best.

Ramadan = Lower Productivity, Higher Crime, Heart Attacks...
