Breastfeeding adult men sparks holy war

The Islamic population in the Middle East has been caught up in a new war, but it is its own enemy in the fight over a "fatwa" that authorizes the breastfeeding of adult men.

"The fatwa-issuing thugs give orders, pass judgment, and make decisions: love is forbidden; looking [at a man] is a sin; expressions of love are contemptible – [but] as for breastfeeding, that is permissible, permissible, permissible," wrote Nadine Al-Budair, a presenter for the U.S. Arabic-language television station Al-Hurra.

The dispute has been monitored by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which has compiled a history of it and added comments from contemporary Muslims interests.

The issue first arose in Egypt in May 2007 when a "fatwa" – an Islamic religious decree – was issued from "Izzat" Atiyya, who used to be chief of the Hadith Department at Al-Azhar University. Atiyya permitted a woman to breastfeed a man with whom she must work in private, which MEMRI reported led to Atiyya's dismissal from his school position.

The dispute returned to headlines just a few weeks ago when Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Obikan, in the Saudi Justice Ministry, issued a "fatwa" allowing the breastfeeding of adults.

MEMRI documents how the rules are aimed at "enabling an unrelated man and woman to be secluded in the same room, a situation which Islam considers forbidden gender mixing."

The report explained the fatwas regarding breastfeeding suggest it creates "a bond of kinship between the man and woman … thus making it acceptable for them to be together in seclusion."

The latest edict "created a stir in Saudi Arabia and in the Arab media at large, arousing a wave of criticism from clerics and columnists alike," MEMRI reported.

For example, articles in the daily Al-Riyadh argued "only moral education could address the issue of male and female seclusion" and there should even be a body of authorities in Islam "that would prevent the issuing of strange fatwas such as these."

The MEMRI report said Saudi Sheik Abd Al-Aziz Bin Abdallah Aal Al-Sheik condemned the idea as contradicting Islamic law and ruled that breastfeeding is for children under the age of 2.

Reported MEMRI, "Similarly, Dr. Muhammad Al-Nujeimi, a civics professor and member of the Islamic law faculty at King Fahd University, called on Al-Obikan to rescind his ruling, as 'adult breastfeeding is not [a way to turn a man into the woman's mahram] and whoever permits it is wide of the truth.'"

Further, a recent sermon from Sheik Abd Al-Rahman Al-Sudayyis, imam of the Al-Harram Mosque in Mecca, denounced the fatwa, MEMRI reported.

Amidst the arguments over the ideas, Al-Obikan renewed his statements, explaining his ruling is based on Islamic religious law, Shariah.

And MEMRI reported Sheik Dr. Saleh Al-Sadlan, professor at the Imam Mohammad Bin Saud Islamic University, was supportive of Al-Obikan's position.

"He said the fatwa should not be regarded with disdain, as it is in line with the Sunna and the opinions of numerous clerics. Al-Sadlan also said that since the fatwa seems strange to the public, it behooves the mufti or the Senior Clerics Council – the Saudi Arabia's supreme religious authority – to examine the fatwa and issue their endorsement of it."

Another argument was raised by Sheik Ahmad Al-Hashem of the Saudi Ministry of Religious Endowments, who said the mother's milk belongs not to her but her husband.

It all was too much for Al-Watan columnist Halima Muzaffar.

"We must do away with this phobia of gender mixing," wrote the columnist, who was joined in sentiment by Layla Ahmad Al-Ahdab. Also writing in the Al-Watan, Al-Ahdab said, "How long with the 'gender mixing phobia' serve as a source for fatwas that cause the world to laugh at us?"

"fatwas that cause the world to laugh at us?"

When have their been fatwas that do not cause the world to laugh at Islam?  Such an asinine religion, there is nothing respectable about it.
 
May Islam be destroyed quickly, and within our days.
