Top Saudi mufti reportedly issues fatwa allowing starving husbands to eat wives

Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority has issued a fatwa allowing a starving man to eat his wife in order to save himself, causing a stir among the Kingdom’s residents, London-based daily al-Quds al-Arabi reported.

Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh, according to the report, said that the act would display the wife’s obedience to her husband and her willingness to become one with his flesh.

Saudi Twitter users quickly took to the social network to express their shock at the strange fatwa attributed to the Grand Mufti, al-Quds al-Arabi reported.

Following the report Saudi media accused Iranian media of fabricating the fatwa, noting that the fatwa was not on the official’s website.

Does anyone else find it odd that the al Quds paper is published in Britain?

  • Clink9

    Anyone that would not allow a hungry man to eat the meat off his wife’s bones is a hater.

    • I bet Mohammed would approve!

      • Ron MacDonald

        He’d prefer eating little girls.

    • Surele Surele

      That’s what marrying several women is for, no?

  • Jason

    It’s ok as long as he follows proper halal procedures when he’s preparing his wife for dinner ….

    • That’s correct, you gotta string her up by the heels and let her bleed out…

      • Jason

        Dr. Lecter, I presume?!

      • Surele Surele

        that’s too gruesome to imagine, but I guess this is the halal way.

        • Kathy Prendergast

          Halal slaughter is pretty gruesome, and cruel too, as the animal often takes several minutes to die from blood loss and remains conscious and in terrible pain; it can thrash around like crazy which is why scenes of halal slaughter often look like a true bloodbath, blood everywhere and on everyone and everything. I read that the difference between halal and kosher slaughter is that a kosher butcher uses a different kind of knife which is a lot sharper and severs the main artery in the neck with one stroke, cutting off circulation to the brain so the animal dies instantly, or at least a lot more quickly.

            Thanks Kathy, no breakfast for me this morning.

  • Ron MacDonald

    It appears that all mufti’s and mullahs are graduates of a coconut college.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      It’s the inbreeding that does it.

  • Dana Garcia

    So Islam offers marriage with extra benefits. Burqa gals often look well fed, which would work out well during a future famine.

  • Solo712

    Does the fatwa offer any recipes ?

    • eMan14

      Kefir and juice. Or maybe I got the spelling wrong.

  • Maggat

    “strange fatwa”? What’s strange about this? After all we are talking islam, are we not?

  • simus1

    Let’s see, devout muslim women get to eat (the scraps) last anyway, so that’s four wives times ………………………. But fourth wife would tend to be just a scrawny slave unless she was really hot and from a rich family ……………………
    So no guidance available, wifewise, about who precedes who into the cook pot?

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    A fatwa for cannibalism.
    Thanks Islam.
    Hopefully this is a harbinger of things to come for that part of the world.

    • Hmmm a shop in there

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Stir fried Yazidi?
        Something tells me that dish is now ‘a thing’.

        Really, what’s the need for this fatwa in the first place unless there were some ISIS or Boko Haram Koranimals somewhere short on food?

          There was a show on BBC last night about British jihadi brides.
          They focused on three who have gone and had jihadi babies. The good news was that their hubbies had all been martyred. These three continually post anti west tirades online.
          The most amazing thing was that the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police said she would welcome them home with open arms, give them a big hug, and sit them down and explain how naughty they were.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Well good for the Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police!
            How enlightened and “compassionate” of her.

            I suggest that maybe she should read up on the “black widows” of Chechnya (шахидка – shahidka, AKA: Brides of Allah).

            Thank you!!!

          • Kathy Prendergast

            I somehow doubt that any of these jihadi sperm receptacles dream of being hugged by a filthy infidel Police Commissioner, even a female one.

          • Kathy Prendergast

            She had better first get them tested for diseases before hugging them.

    • Surele Surele

      White meat only… did they really mean “white”?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Likely a micro-aggression, stealthily embedded in our language, and left over from our colonization of Chickistan.

    Chef Mullah’s Culinary Tip #27:
    Cook with freedom-sack left on to seal in flavor!

  • seaoh

    Thats muff t? I thought Muff T was a hip hop “artist’ he doesn’t even look black.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I think the mufti is being a cunning linguist. I’ll bet some wives complain that they aren’t eaten enough.

    • Clausewitz

      Ba Da Bing, Rimshot…….

  • DMB
  • Lorensacho

    I wonder if ketchup is halal.

  • moraywatson

    Is there a fatwa for starving artists?

  • Clausewitz

    At heart I’m just a good ole boy redneck, and even I can understand why when deer season comes around you hand out 10 antler tags for every 1 antlerless tag. I think it has something to do with maintaining the herd. Upon further reflection, bon appetite boys while you eat yourselves into an ecological dead end.

  • moraywatson

    This is where having 4 wives comes in handy.

  • Ed

    Sounds like a porn fatwa…

  • Xavier

    Special request from ISIS; they’ve done everything else.

  • Exile1981

    so pork is bad but long pork is good?

  • simus1

    “Well, she was a good wife, but not a great wife.”
    “Now comes the hard choice, young donkey or old camel?”

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Does he have to kill his wife first? And if so, does it have to be done the halal way? Inquiring minds want to know…

  • Kathy Prendergast

    But I thought there was a fatwa against eating an animal that you’ve previously had sex with? Does that not count with human animals? It’s so hard to keep all these fatwas straight.

    Saudis prove their disgusting stupidity every day. Decadent and endlessly perverse. As for being cannibals, that is an islamic tradition, seen often throughout the world.
