Veiling is compulsory in Islam, debate unacceptable: Al-Azhar

Egypt’s Al-Azhar, the Sunni Muslim world’s main religious institution, asserted on Monday in a fatwa, or religious decree, that it is compulsory for women in Islam to wear the veil, while those who deny this are “extremist” and “abnormal”.

Through a statement released by The International Electronic Center for Fatwas of Al-Azhar, the institution said the veil, or hijab, is an obligatory duty imposed by the teachings of Islam, and any debate on the topic is unacceptable.

    Linda Sarsour wears a veil applied with a trowel.

      I think that her owner might have asked her to prepare some REALLY strong acid.

      For some reason or another…

      By the look of that man hand I’d have to say welder.

    Sentiments I’m sure our Pope Dopey would concur with…..

    Well I’m glad they cleared that up. I assume all feminists in Canada will now wear the veil, to show support for their Islamic allies.

    Apparently, Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has unhinged these holy men.

    As if they are the final authority. Islam has no ‘pope’. PHfff him and the camel he sodomized.

      That would be the camel he rode in on.

    Al-Azar ruling crowd bans all Copts from its holy precincts and even trusted super dhimmi infidel scholars “doing research” are mostly barely tolerated for short stays only.
