Breastfeeding a Man in Islam
I just really had to share this story. I have a feeling Germanyt will love it Tongue

Apparently, there was a Fatwa a couple of years ago that forced women to breastfeed any non-related men they had to work with, in order to avoid violating the Islamic law against mixing sexes.

There is precedence for this in one of the hadiths. This is said to have happened after Muhammed voided the adoption laws so he could marry his own daughter-in-law.

Quote:Abu Huthayfa and his wife Sahla, had an adopted son (a freed
slave) called Salim, who used to work and live in the house freely.
As Salim was like a son to her, Sahla used to rely on him to help in
the housework. She could stay with him in the same room without
having to cover herself from his looks. When Mohammed cancelled the
principle of adoption, Salim became a stranger in the house and
could no longer be alone with Sahla, Abu Huthayfa’s wife. The Lady
complained to Mohammed who immediately provided her with a genius
solution- he asked her to breast-feed Salim, after which she would
again be allowed to keep him as a son with her in the house. She
said: ‘but Salim is a man and has a beard!’ Mohammed smiled to her
and said ‘I know that’.

Apparently, there was a huge outcry against this (unsurprisingly). Furthermore, Muslims generally refused to believe that Muhammed could ever have said anything of the sort. Here's another quote from the article:

Quote:The Islamic establishment deliberately and consistently hide the
ugly face of Islam. The majority of Muslims do not know the
magnitude of Mohammed’s violations of the accepted Arabic traditions
and moralities. Without much qualm, Mohammed even violated his own
Islamic laws to suit his own agenda. Starting from childhood,
Muslims are brainwashed to see a polished side of Islam. All of
Mohammed’s atrocities, invasions, assassinations and mass murders
are carefully presented as justified acts of self-defence against
the enemies of Allah. Some of Mohammed’s absurdities, like the
hadith above, are deliberately kept in the dark out of reach of
ordinary Muslims.

The Fatwa was overturned and the cleric issuing it recanted. Still, it was worth sharing. This happened in 2009.

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Well, actually, I guess you can and somebody actually did (and now like a billion people follow his made up bullshit).

RE: Breastfeeding a Man in Islam
This was used a couple of years ago by the women campaigning for the right to drive in Saudi Arabia. Because they were not allowed to ride in a car with a man who was not a family member, they threatened to breastfeed their chauffeurs making them Hadith-icly (a word I just invented) their sons.

The law hasn't changed, I don't know if anyone followed through with the threat. I guess they would have been arrested for... something... adultery maybe?

I thought this was made up at first actually, but a friend actually watched the guy on television arguing for it. So it seemed legit Tongue

daylight, do you mean they are still not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia?

Indeed smoosh - the campaign is on-going

Back in December 2011, a particularly idiotic cleric declared that women being allowed to drive would mean the end of virginity in KSA. Many women continue to break the law even when threatened with lashes, especially those who have a license from another country and are used to beig independent.

Just been talking to an American friend who works in Saudi (she isn't allowed to drive either) who pointed out that perhaps women should be allowed to uncover their faces so they can see properly THEN allowed to drive... first things first.
