The Department of Crazy things some religions Believe: Islam Edition

Every Religion has some nutty elements that they try to paste over with sweet Sweet Caramel or some soft candy inside stuff. But the nuts come out from time to time. So I present to you some of the nuttier stuff in Islam (thanks Memri)

Bellow the fold

An uproar in the Egyptian media followed the recent publication of a book by Egyptian Mufti Dr. Ali Gum’a in which he claimed that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad would drink his urine to be blessed.

The fatwa provoked strong objections on the part of the Egyptian religious establishment. Leading Al-Azhar and Religious Endowments Ministry officials stated that Gum’a’s conclusions were mistaken even though they were based on Islamic sources. They added that his claims were inappropriate for the modern era and that they only caused embarrassment in the Egyptian street and did damage to the Prophet and to Islam.

and lets go deeper (if not grosser)

gyptian Mufti: The Companions of the Prophet Blessed Themselves with His Urine, Sweat and Saliva

In his book Religion and Life – Modern Everyday Fatwas, Egyptian Mufti Dr. Ali Gum’a wrote that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad would bless themselves by drinking his urine, and described an incident of urine-drinking from a hadith: “Umm Ayman drank the urine of the Prophet, and the prophet told her: ‘This stomach will not be dragged through the fire of Hell, because it contains something of our Lord the Messenger of Allah…’ [1]

“This blessing,” Al-Gum’a added, “[can also] be done with the honorable saliva, sweat, hair, urine or blood of the Prophet. This is because anyone who knows the love of the Messenger of Allah is not repulsed [by these]; just as a mother is not repulsed by the feces of her son, this is even more so [in the case of] our Lord the Messenger of Allah, whom we love more than our fathers, sons, and wives. Anyone who was or is repulsed by the Messenger of Allah must recant his faith.” [2]

I am not laughing at Islam just mearly showcasing something really weird in the Tree of Islam, that he decided to put forward.

and what I like best are some of the Ironic comments in countering his weird Fatwa

“The books of the hadiths contain both wheat and chaff. They contain the acceptable and the unacceptable, and it is not for the good of Islam or the Muslims if we repeatedly disseminate the pollution that they contain… Those of us who speak in the name of the religion must understand that… the world has changed, circumstances have changed, and it is no longer acceptable or logical to fill the heads of the Muslim masses with the defiled sayings, sick thoughts, and groundless suppositions whose correctness is completely unproven…

“The publicity about [the Companions of the Prophet] blessing themselves by drinking the urine of the Prophet and spreading [his] saliva upon their faces does grave damage to the Prophet. No one disputes that the Prophet’s was the supreme role-model in his traits and in his behavior… but Allah wanted him to be a [mortal] man, and for him to remain a mortal living among humans, to eat and drink like them, to marry and beget sons and daughters…

So Its superman Urine… that makes it so much better

but to get out of our Modern worldview for a moment. The Prophet was a dude who lived in places where you might not have ready water access all the time…. so drinking his urine while unclean, could save your life. Mayhaps

“Umm Ayman drank the urine of the Prophet, and the prophet told her: ‘This stomach will not be dragged through the fire of Hell, because it contains something of our Lord the Messenger of Allah…’ maybe thats what it was trying to teach

    This Egyptian Mufti is crazy. I am Muslim and I do not think that his story is true. It is only a lie that has been written in one of the books and i do not trust at all. I am telling that Mufti to go to hell and shut his mouth. This is better for him and may be for the whole world.
