Islam Denies Camel Rights: Women must give husbands sex ‘even on camels’, Islamic scholar says

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — While insisting that the concept of marital rape does not exist in Islam, religious scholars say it is sinful for a Muslim man to force his wife to have sex when she is ill or menstruating.

Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria said that men can always have sexual intercourse with their spouses even if the latter do not agree, saying that a Muslim woman has “no right” to reject her husband’s demand.

“Even the Prophet says even when they’re riding on the back of the camel, when the husband asks her, she must give.

“So there’s no such thing as rape in marriage. This is made by European people, why should we follow?”

    Message to Western Feminists: There is no such thing as marital rape. You made it up.

    (Mufti said, “So there’s no such thing as rape in marriage. This is made by European people, why should we follow?”)

    So the rape of Muslim women goes on…Feminists won’t protest because ‘it’s their culture and who are we to criticize?’

    Therefore, some cultures have the right to abuse women.

    • Western feminists are a joke.

        A bad joke at that.

      …and as an animal rightist I oppose everything the good imam says here. This is clear animal abuse.

    Typical backward nonsense from the esteemed “scholar” but I found the comments interesting: there were only 10 (when I checked) but the majority seemed to be opposed to this guy’s position (on the camel – ahem!). Here’s a sample from one post (that had the most thumbs up, if that counts for anything):

    “[Islam] isolates itself from the rest of the civilized world. It seems to treat women as housewives as in the days of the prophet. Islam does not recognize the fact that a women does not need a man to survive in the modern world.” (Gasp – he didn’t capitalize the prophet’s name!)

    Where is the porn film of this behavior? I’m having a hard time imagining how it would work.

    • Blacksmith

      I bet if you looked hard enough you would find it has been done, The film I mean. The other goes without saying…… Oh you mean sex ON a camel not WITH a camel……

    It seems to me that the Mufti has a disagreement with his Prophet.
    Compare para 1 (Mohammed’s teaching) with para 2 (his own, heretical, teaching). Unless the word “always” has changed its meaning!

    I thought a real Muslim would rape the camel instead.

  • Millie_Woods

    What if the camel has a headache?

    The decision was just a matter of tidying up a few loose ends since previous deep thought by those charged with such weighty matters had already decided that sex with a dead wife or dead wives while traveling on a camel is cool with allah.

    Would this be on a one-hump camel, or two-hump camel? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Why make the camel jelous?
