Love, Moroccan style: Fatwa allows man to have sex with dead wife’s corpse

by editor on May 17, 2011

Call it sick. Twisted. Depraved. Bizarre. Choose whatever word you want to describe this latest fatwa for lovesick Moroccans. Trust us, you can’t come up with a word that’s harsh enough.

female-mummy

"Not tonight, dear. I have a dead ache."

MoroccoBoard.com issues the fatal fatwa facts:

Necrophilia is now Halal in Morocco by the grace of (Islamic Scholar and member of the religious establishment) Alem Zemzami.

I should perhaps be more specific in Zemzami’s Fatwa: he allows the widowed husband to have sexual intercourse with the corpse of his deceased wife. The Fatwa does not say whether it reciprocates for a woman (although I suspect even with rigor mortis, it will not do) nor does it specify how many hours after the wife’s death a man can still, you know… perform their marital duties. If it was not for the scholar’s level of seniority, I would dismiss this fatwa as yet another deranged, lonely individual who did not get some for a while. But this is Zemzami. And it is a Fatwa from an official of the Habous ministry. If indeed such Fatwa is genuine.

… Zemzami justifies his ruling by means of analogy: Since a good Muslim couple will meet again in Heaven, and since death does not alter the marital contract (in his opinion) it is not a hindrance to the husband’s desire to have sexual intercourse with the corpse of his (freshly) deceased wife. A deranged mind and flawed logical thinking seem not to be part of the position of Senior Alem’s requirements. I am no Islamic Scholar (thank God) but I remember from my (compulsory and utterly boring) High School Islamic courses that there is a minimum amount of logical thinking when the Imam (or Alem) makes their Ijtihad, or investigations. And quite frankly, I really don’t see how he managed to find a ruling for the deceased; The Islamic literature is very extensive on the living (as it normally it should be) but Zemzami’s ruling tops them all. He seemed to overlook the procreating objective of marital mating (this is why concepts such as “نكاح المتعة” are forbidden) …

So much for the “’til death do us part” section of the wedding vows.

WRONG. The article specifically says freshly deceased wife.

The real question is: How how is she? You going to tell me that if there’s a freshly deceased victorias secret model laying there, still all warm, smooth and smelling of perfume, and nobody’s looking you wouldn’t? She’s already dead…no harm no foul.

Don’t worry about any costs. The Federal Reserve (ie., big banks) will print and send them all the money they need…..pis*#@ away and blowing the money to the wind which they have done for eons….doesn’t matter where or who it goes to because they have no idea where it goes nor does the Federal gov’mnt even care. Just make it up with your tax dollars and the dollars of your children and grand children.

Technically, according to Islam a dead woman is still putting out like a total skank if penetrated while dead so Allah demands her corpse be stoned and then decapitated after the offending man has finished.

Behind the veil is a couple of rotting teeth and bad breath. Why do you think muslim women wear the things to begin with?

“نكاح المتعة” Nikaah Al-muta’ah: Nikaah: marriage; marriage contract; matrimony, wedlock, and muta’ah: temporary marriage, usufruct marriage contracted for a specified time and exclusively for the purpose of sexual pleasure (Islamic Law). Essentially, this is the Islamic way to get around the sin of fornication and prostitution by contractually marrying a woman (prostitute) before you shack up with her for a couple of days and nights. When all the hubba-hubba is over with and you want to move on, you simply break the marriage contract by snapping a wooden twig in two and saying to the woman three times: “I divorce you!” “I divorce you!” “I divorce you!”, or you might say something in Arabic like: “Ya sharmoota! Ifta al-bab wa timshee min hinna!” (translation: “Hey Bitch! Open the door and get out!”), or something like that and poof, presto-chango no more marriage and you, the wayward man, can go back to your four wives with a clean conscience, regardless of the lipstick stains on your collar and the semen stains on the blue burka. Oh those frisky Arabs, they’ve got an angle for everything sinful under the sin, oops, I meant the sun.

Of course, I have no earthly idea how this works into necrophilia, but if there was going to be someone who would try to make it all neat and legal, it would be an Imam. I’m just surprised it took this long.

Just FYI, islam does allow for the woman to receive the same “pleasures.” It should also be noted, that the practice extends to dead animals as well – that is, a muslim man can have sex with an animal, dead or alive, and there are provisions for a muslimah to have sex with a “detached” penis either of a man or of an animal.

Yo can read about it here:
http://www.investigateislam.com/english/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=122&Itemid=107

The hadith doesn’t specifically permit the practice, it just explains that a good muslim should wash after such a deed

Or listen to a very informative (yet disturbing) commentary about it here:

I think it extends to living animals too. I think we’ve all seen that video taken with a FLIR camera in the early days of the Afghan campaign. God that shit was messed up.

How can some people who call themselves religious leaders do something like this! Are they not making a Mockery of Islam? of Allah and of our beloved prophet?

And what would muhammad teach them? He is their perfect example and HE had sex with a corpse.

Really, you should learn more about muhammad before commenting on what you think he’d do.

Dmatyr, are you sure taht it is a fatwa based on quran and hadith? There are 72 in islam, and only 1 is not deviated from the original teaching and taht is ahl sunnah wal jamaah. And it does not allow sex with animals, or woman to have sex with detached penis. And no, muhammad didn ‘t have sex with corpse.those website probably written by some psycho.
If i hate your religion, i would write a lot of nonsense and someone who does not know much about your religion might fall for that.seemed like it take a genius to really understand islam.sigh

Wow, it just take a brilliant man to understand the twisted note from the website. It stated that men need to wash after penetration even if not ejaculate.also, if done anus sex or sex with animals is done intentionally/absentmindedly they need to wash.n it is also correct.what the website does not do is telling that anus sex, sex with animals be it dead or alive is ceryainly not ALLOWED.please google on that, and make sure the fatwa come from mazhab shafiee, hanbali, hanafi or maliki only.original not twisted. If this statement say, “you must wash your mouth if you drink urine”. So, must you wash your mouth if you drink urine? Yes, of course.and can you drink urine?yes too?.(it does not say that you cant).u see you cant just take bits of knowledge in islam and put it as it is.
About this necrophilia thing, like i say, there a lot of deviated teaching in islam and this may be one of it.

Nikah contract is broken on death because all the terms of the contract are nullified upon death, permanently. If the contract cannot be executed according to any of its terms, then the contract itself is null and void. This is because the entire subject matter of the contract itself is null and void by death of either party. Rules of burial, inheritance and custody of children come in to play, these rules are only valid after the death of either party and do not permit negotiation with the dead person because the dead person is no longer a ‘mukallaf’ i.e. not a ‘responsible’ person. Since contracts in Islam are only permitted with the ‘mukallaf’ (e.g. as children are not ‘mukallaf’ contracts with children are not permitted), therefore a contract (any contract) with a dead person is not permitted. Indeed all existing contracts cease upon death, with some obligations transferring to inheritance for example in order to conclude payments on contracts. As sex is a main benefit of the nikah contract, it stops on death as the dead party is no longer a ‘mukallaf’ with no possibility of returning to becoming ‘mukallaf’ again. Therefore sex with the dead husband or wife is not permitted because they cease to be the ‘husband’ or ‘wife’, as the contract binding them (i.e. the ‘Nikah’ contract which contains the permission for sex) also has ceased.

I am no scholar but I would test this fatwa against my own understanding of islamic contracts for e.g. as I have stated above, as we all should in order to question all fatwa’s – leading to a healthy revival of Islamic culture.
