More Stupidity in the Name of Islam

Another example of cleric-al errors done in the name of Islam, Indian Islamic scholars/clerics/village elders (aka village idiots) have said that a man who said the word “talaq” (divorce) three times in his sleep should split from his wife and is considered divorced after 11 years. They found out apparently after his wife told her friends about it.

The husband says he didn’t mean it and now villagers are boycotting his family because he is choosing not to accept the clerics’ verdict.

â??Sobena says: “Enough is enough. We have become a laughing stock. Come what may, I can’t stay without my husband.”

Akhtar’s father, Ebadat, agrees the clerics “have taken a wrong decision”.

“I am victimised as I am still in touch with Akhtar. Nobody is coming to my grocery shop.”

The clerics, though, are refusing to budge. [source]�

I laughed when I heard this simply because it reaches phenomenal levels of absurdity done in the name of Islam. I am willing to bet everything I own that these “clerics” are illiterate. Obviously this man was not in a conscious state of mind, but I’m thinking that neither were these “clerics”. I would not categorise this as extremism because I believe even extremists would have a tough time proving that their verdict is valid Islamically. I would categorise this under “the crazies”

Saying the Words of Divorce in a Dream


  • Seriously, some people have no brain, and if they had one they’d be afraid to actualy use it, or it would be totaly messed up that they can’t think straight

    Tarawneh I think those clerics are not educated, they’ve become clericس for the uniform and respect, nothing more.
    We had a good share of these WISE men in Christianity as well, especially in villages.

    Now these guys look like geniuses considering what some WISE men are doing in the name of Islam and religion in general!

    Lets be honest, the guy is having nightmares for marrying that women!Maybe they should consider breaking up.

  • Here is an article on the proliferation of frivolous fatwas:

    My favorite part:

    The fatwa says soccer is to be played only in order to strengthen the body for jihad, not for fun.

    A game of soccer played under the suggested rules would have no lines surrounding the field, no crossbar on the goal, no referee, no uniforms, no post-scoring celebrations and no yellow or red cards. It would no longer be played in two 45-minute halves, to completely differentiate from the heretics, polytheists, corrupted and disobedient.

    The fatwa says, do not follow the rules regarding playing with 11 people. Instead, add to this number or decrease it.

    Oh, lord. Its ‘jihad-rules football’. I wonder if they get to employ IEDs against the rival team. 😉
