Egypt’s “Farewell Intercourse” law allowing s*x with dead wives sparks outrage

Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament will soon introduce a new law allowing husbands to have s*x with their dead wives, for up to six hours after their death.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment, highlighting a trend of increasingly anti-female legislation since the Arab Revolutions.

The controversial “farewell Intercourse” bill was inspired by a Fatwa issued by a Moroccan cleric last year. Zamzami Abdul Bar said that since the two would meet in Heaven again anyway, death shouldn’t get in the way of one last post-mortem marital romp.

Egypt’s National Council for Women is campaigning against the changes, saying that “marginalising and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country’s human development”.

Critics have dubbed the law as “catastrophic.”

A Prominent Egyptian journalist and TV host Jaber al-Qarmouty used his program on Tuesday to lash out at the proposed law.

“This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues? Did Abdul Samea see by his own eyes the text of the message sent by Talawi to Katatni?

“This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner,” Jaber lamented on air.

Another Egyptian journalist, Amro Abdul Samea, reported in the al-Ahram newspaper that the head of Egypt’s National Council for Women, Dr Mervat al-Talawi, complained about the legislations which are being introduced under “alleged religious interpretations”.

The subject of a husband having s*x with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death.

He also said that women have the right to have s*x with her dead husband, alarabiya.net reported.

Egyptian lawmakers are also seeking to eliminate a reform implemented over a decade ago that allows women to end unhappy or abusive marriages without interference from their spouses.

  1. Oooo!God d creator of man kind pls come 2 our rescue!it is an abomination 2 hv s*x wit d dead b it ur wife or husband pls don’t do evil & back it up wit Islam if at all is d same God we worship.No religion supports violence as we’ll as evil

  2. End Time !!!
    Repent Oº°˚ ˚°ºh
    Sodom and Gomorah!!!

  3. Has it now become clear dat the so called Islamic religion is satanic? Look at the type of right someone is introducing to a country dat has been noted 4 world civilization catalyst.

  4. Point of correction islam is not a satanic religion and it also does not allow anybody whatsoever to have s*x with a dead spouse or even any sort of dead person.

  5. ISLAM IS EVIL, IT IS THE ANTICHRIST. ISLAM IS AGAINST ANYTHING GOOD. ISLAM IS A CURSE, JUST CHECKOUT ALL THE COUNTRIES WITH SIZABLE MUSLIM POPULATION AND SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE; DISEASES, POVERTY, VIOLENCE, BACKWARDNESS, OPPRESSION ETC….

  6. @ Hadeezah, can’t u see the news? Its a FATWA for crying out loud, hope u know what that is, else Google it.

  7. It is extremely unfortunate that Egypt a nation once respected as a cradle of ancient civilisation is rapidly sliding into senseless barbarism in the name of religion. If the islamic cleric can advise his followers to sleep with their dead wives then something is fundamentally wrong somewhere. Lowering marriage to 14, ridding women of rights to education and employment, forcing abusive marriages and violation in death are signs of a failing society

  8. eeeeewwwwwwww! How disgusting. These people are plain perverts. God! Thanx am not an egyptian!

  9. This Is wrong,Skam is the most morally upright religion,these people are introducing blasphemy into our Religion,Its such a shame to hear this coming from so called islamic clerics who twist the words of God nd the prophet 4 personal Interest….Ya Allah we seek refuge in you from the Influence of shaytan

  10. why r we panicking abt this? Itsnt clearly seen and understood that de world is aproaching its end? But God is very faithful 2save his very elect-his ppl from these men

  11. Islam has nothing to do with such stupid Fatwas. No Muslim scholar worthy of sound scholarship would ever support or even mutter such an idea. From the time of the prophet down to generations thereafter no scholar ever issue such a Fatwa for they are aware of the fact that death terminates every earthly activity that the living engage in,marriage inclusive.
    Please do not smear Islam due to this kind of follies coming from half-baked end of time scholars. Do we just crucify Christianity because of its clergies solemnization of gay marriages ?

  12. This is total madness, Islam will never approve of such an animalistic behaviour, this is surely a sign that d world is cmng to an end,I pray that Allah (swt) guide them to the right path cos dey r truely in darkness

  13. @ hadeezah and @ khalifa do your research well. This is not about religious sentiments, it is about generations of women on the verge of losing their rights as we speak. Imagine you were a 14 year old in. an abusive marriage, how would the world hear your story? Seeing that you have no education to operate a phone or PC and couldn’t afford one since you have no job.
    @ patience Egyptian or not bear in mind that Egypt was influenced by a Moroccan Islamic cleric, it is left for every right thinking person to check injustice perpetuated in the name of religion. Any society that upholds religion over common sense which as they say is not common has major issues. Don’t forget the one time governor and senator in your country that married a minor.
    Pray for Egypt and for your country too and speak out against evil when you can!

  14. @ sharpshooter, why would you conclude a religion is wrong because of the position of a select peopledoes pastor chris oyakhilome’s position on masturbatiom constitute the saying of the bilble or position of christianity and christians, please  use your brains not sentiments to judge

  15. This is so disgusting,to u people dat are saying islam is a satanic religion, dats not true.ALLAH HAS PERFECTED ISLAM .All wot a muslim need is 2 follow d quran and d sunnah.any one that judge in islam due to his own impression is a sinner. MAY ALLAH HELP US

  16. @Iteshi @sharpshooter u must be out of ur minds and ur comments on this issue is very sentimental and against anything good, I strongly believe that u guys are not good to even ur religion because no any good religion allow for for any curse and bad words to any religion. U aren’t good christians or whatever you called yourselves, cos if u are u must knw dat all this are the signs of end of the world. Beside, Islamic religion is a religion of peace and it does not teaches this evil and barbaric act, Islam is a religion of PERFECTION, it means PEACE by its name. By d way, no any religion allows acts like these. If u understands ur religion very well, u must knw dat. But ur idiotic, immatured and sentimental comments against my religion prooves dat u are illeterate of ur own religion too, talkless of another.

  17. Talking about child marriage, who said its unislamic? By the way, aisha was only 6 yrs old when ur pedophilic ‘prophet’ married her. What a prophet!

  18. I just wonder where some people get their info from @sharpshooter now who told you the prophet married Aisha at the age of six?

  19. As I said earlier, de world is coming 2 an end, lets not fight ourslves cos I am certainly sure very sooner than latter, our dear Nigerian National Assembly will move 4 de adoption and implementation of these same satanic and barbaric law. Don’t 4get! de world is fastly coming 2 an end.

  20. Assadullah Ahmad

    @sharpshooter. I beg for God sake, stop insult this Religion {ISLAM}. Although Prophet Muhammad approaches Aishat at age of six but married her at the age of 9. But compare 9years old Nigeria girls to that of Saudi Arabia country. Stop insulting God, His Messanger and His Divine Religion. It is better for u now to repent to Allah, Who can deal with anybody who insult Him, and His Religion before the wrath of God would be sent to you.

  21. @ Hadeeza, its like u dont read you terrorism manual(Koran). She was ‘married’ off to muhammed(piss be upon him) by her father Abu Bakr at the age of 6 and went to live with him at 9. mohammed(SAW; s*x Award Winner) was a pervert. Pure and simple! to hell with you a*s-lifting muzzies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. In any religious group, organisation or society, be it a muslim, xtian or a pegan, the worst and the most dangerous and unGodly thing that falls in a society is, ‘Lack of knowlege’. If u are an illeterate, u are a living dead. I’m sorry 2 say this. An illeterate is d divil best frnd, and hell is d divil final destination. So, my advice, is dat, no mata who u r, know b4 u say, so, u dnt fall frm a saint 2 a satan. If u know, u know dat in d both religion, u most have saints n satans. Eg, real man of God n (man of satan, dat have s*x wit d dead) in muslim. And, Or real man of God and (man of satan dat have s*x wit children tru d anus in d church) in christian. Even in d peganism, its same. So, people BEWARE….!!! Seek and ye shall find. Search 4 dat KNOWLEDGE. Thats d only difference btw a human being and the animal. A man n a goat. God help us. Ameen!

  23. @hadeezah how can you not know that Aisha also called Ayesha was married to the prophet at 6 when he was 54 years old? According to the hadith the marriage was consummated when she was nine. What he did was wrong by any standard and only shows that he was a man with human weaknesses. The point here is human and more specifically women rights. Only God is above mistakes. What causes concern is when people try to legislate their selfish interests. Please keep it real guys. Cheers!

  24. Ahmad… will u give me your precious daughter in ‘marriage’ at the age of 9? even Aisha confirmed it with her mouth that she went to mohammed’s(piss be upon him) house with her toys, tell me, is having s*x with a kid that still plays with toys good? No of course! its a sickness and perversion of the mind called PEDOPHILIA. A nine year old is a nine year old even in the moon where your lazy and bloodsucking allah stays.

  25. Wa iyazubillahi, this barbaric and completely unislamic, no scholar in his right senses will give such a fatwa. And just bcoz a scholar gives such a fatwa doesn’t make him right.

  26. How true does this information is? Let’s assume its true whatsoever, does the bill enacted and will it see the light of the day? This is just a question. You are not even sure this information is genuine, it might even be some bunch of culprits trying to blackmail and frame our religion like they always did with regards to terrorism saga. Henceforth, this is just a position of a selective community within more than 2 billion Muslim population and the law might not even be passed by their legislatives. Let’s just assume this has happened, Islam is still far better than christianity in sanity, morallity and purity because no any sect in ISLAM has ever had a gay as its leader but check out Anglican communion of The United State of America their leader is a GAY!!! U talk about getting 14yr old marriage is abbusive, how about pastors impregnating pupils of under 14 years old members of their choir?

  27. s*x with a dead spouse in this time and age. Are there no more concrete issues to discus. This is not only disrespect to the dead but satanic!

  28. This is the height of s*xual pervasion.it also shows that a large part of the egyptian parliament consist of a bunch of disgrace.the idea is amoral, archaic and unintelligent

  29. This is sheer MADNESS!!!
    Has he forgotten that the Prophet (SAW) commanded that one of the three things that should be done without delay is BURYING OUR DEAD???
    What are his evidences? These are pple used by d enemies of Islam to spoil its name for percuniary gains. No scholar(in d real sense of a scholar) would pass such disgusting and punishable fatwa.
    May Allah save us from d hypocrites in d religion.
    Egypt, i believe that u can reason. It’s left to u!!!

  30. @ sharpshooter, ur pervert mind will only lead u to ur destruction. Wen u abuse D Prophet wit d intent 2 smear a religion dat u hav no power of subduing or changing, u r only showin how daft and misleading u r. Even d pope can only hate islam and has no power over it. I pray u c the light of the day b4 its 2 late.

  31. Islam is peace in meaning, my fellow muslim i will like to say dis, just leave everything to God because he know the best.

  32. Sharpshooter or wat do u call urself,i just dont beleive it dat u a gorilla is among we human being.No wonder ur name is sharpshooter.I will now advice u to stay back 4rm abusing the greatest prophet so as to avoid God’s WRATHeatprop u Idiot.

  33. even devil himself aftr hearin dis wil shout AHHHHH!! Humans wont stop suprising me..
    To my felow christians rememba MATTEW 7verse1 judge nt so u will not b judged.. Stop feelin lyk HOLIER THAN THOU religion mindset.. Rememba dat som christian pastors bury live humans in d foundation of deir alter,does it mean al christians ar bad, so likewise if a moslem performs an abomination, it doesnt mean al islamist ar evil.. B careful oh, u’re nt God to judge which religion please and worship him or nt,

  34. This is not true.No rationale govt can propose such a law.I simply don’t believe this story.

  35. Why do we disturb ourselves with the defence of islamists and their supporters? Are we blind to the fact that islamic fanatism is the harbinger of all violence against defenceless civilians in the name of bomb blasts and terrorism? Even the encouragement of mediocrity and human right violations seem to be part of the gospel they preach. e.g. The breeding of the al majiri seem to b normal, Women nt allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, the slavery in Mauritania to speak of few. If we are trying to compare islam with xtianity,we are only trying to hide behind a finger. Let’s call a spade a spade. Islamic religion supports all these.

  36. D prophet has left us wit Quran n d Hadith, so whoever gives any false fatwa or said anything unislamical shall be judge by Allah (swt). Thanks 2 u mikeo 4 dat great comment.

  37. Ismalite’s am suprised? NO

  38. No one is perfect we agree especially here on earth but I wonder how a religion promises 24 virgins in heaven as a reward for fighting in a holy war. So as to continue their pervated acts even in heaven. What is even shocking is the claims that Islam is about peace. How many of you islam followers have protested against the killings of innocent lives by bokoharm the so called islams fanatics. You guys should be upset that they are blaspheming what you religion stands for , but ofcourse you keep silent because deep down we know the truth, Islam is the most voilent,hateful religion.

  39. Yeah right! f**k a dead wife cos marriage continues i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ dead and †̥ “hell”………..♓☺w about loading D̶̲̥̅̊ casket with diamond jewelries as sign of luv i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ death or even die with her §☺ U̶̲̥̅̊ can continue ur marriage i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ “hell” ……..mother f**king assholes.

  40. @sharpshooter nd others who claim d news is real pls kindly go tru d Holy Quran nd tel us d chapter wer such an act is supported….May God lead us 2 d rite part

  41. @ sharpshooter, am strongly advice u to seek 4 forgivenes & repent 4rm God, 4 what u hv said by ur mouth to the “great prophet Muhammed ( s a w)”.

  42. Its no longer a matter of islamism or xtianity or hinduism etc rather are u not seeing what humans ar bcomin even earthworms and ants dont even tink of sexing their queen after her death. It shws just hw depraving and worse dan canibalistic some humans can nd have bcme. Obama signed horse human s*x, ds guy wants dead s*x, maybe his wif was gud in bed nd he doesnt want to mis dat b4 d virgins arive so he flexex his dead wife. Xtians nay gay pastors nd gay priest. All we can say is dat humans need God more tan eva nd p.s i mean Jehovah God, islam faitful hav nt paintd any gud lait since it started.

  43. It is obvious that mostly non muslims are looking for an excuse to insult the religion of Islam, that so called cleric and the unfortunate egyptians who approve such evil they dont seem to be religious people not even muslims. This is evil and not religio
    n. Sharpshooter, may calamity befall on u for blasphemy. I believe u are the type of
    people stay in hideout and make such unwholesome and blasphemous comments.

  44. I CAN’T UNDERSTAND THIS ISLAMIC RELIGION.HAVING s*x WITH A DEAD BEING.THAT RELIGION MUST BE SATANIC.GOD PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON US

  45. @sharp/blurnt shooter,am sure u are a party 2 that fabricated story,anyway for you 2 have said those dirty words against the Noble PROPHET then you Must be an AGENT of the ”DEVIL”people like you are not responsible and does not know the value/worth of being a MUSLIM,cos ALLAH says “the ONLY True Religion b4 ALLAH is ISLAM”.SO I PRAY ALLAH gives you what u deserve

  46. for those if us using dis medium to criticize each other, lets quit that and face the fact that its a sign of endtime. lets pray that our religious leaders shall come to the knowledge of a rightful truth which is that Christ has died for us all. and u out there commenting on this thread, will u make heaven at last. we all ve sinned. God is our last resort.

  47. @sharp shooter: do u knw dat u are very stupid and ignorant? Infact, u are d most barbaric fool i have eva heard of on earth. Can u imagine dis idiot opening his disgusting mouth and saying metarmophorsis word against d holy prophet. 2 God wu made me am sure 4rm d 1st person in ur church, wich is ur pastor 2 d last person wu is d cleaner are all mad. Do u knw u are a moron and if u knw u dnt have anytin tangible to comment y can’t u jst keep queit.ASSHOLE

  48. what is the assurance the so called islamic cleric is one. so far as i know ISLAM never teaches such dastardly acts and the Prophet never taught is. We need to ask the so called ISLAMIC cleric the basis for his FATWA, he shall never be able to produce it. ISLAM preaches modesty as one of the principles of faith.
    THE WOLRD IS REALLY GOING CRAZY WITH THESE SATANIC PRACTICES- the whole incidents are basically the agenda of the FREEMANSORY(the ILLUMINATI)

  49. Just can’t come to terms with this thought as it is so sickining. As far as I know even the animals don’t go near the dead body of their s*x partner and I have seen in the real life animal sitting away from the dead body and crying. We human beings call our selves the best of all creatures on this earth and now this thought or action will really increase this gap between human beings and animals. It does not matter which race is moving ahead with this thought but it is a disgrace to whole human race to every person who lives on this plannet because when we started occuping this planet there was only one world and one human race. These all boundraies and differences are created by our so called mad leaders of various times.

  50. This is not true, this was never done by prophet Muhammad nor was it discussed in the parliament, please stop defaming Islam and stop spreading lies about my country.

    An Egyptian.

  51. Abubakar Rabiu

    Brothers and sisters, there’s nthg to be blabbering at on ds Egyptian’s new law. If any1 4rm egyt or here in Nigeria believes dt ds thing is islamic. I want him or her to quote 4rm Qur’an or Hadith where such a mess is permitted. One can do whtever he or she likes and attribute it 2 ALLAH. Bt time’s coming when every1 will reap wht he or she sow. Let them express their sentiment, if condeming islam’s all they want. With we’ll knw who’s right and who’s wrong. Bt then it’ll hv been too late to cry, since the head will hv been cut down.

  52. Islam is a cancer to the world, I read the Koran, If you believe it you are not only brain washed you are brain dead

  53. What religion will cause in this Country, even relinion itself will not be able to solve it. I am a muslim and my religion been a good man and that’s all. Let anyone say or do whatever he want, it reallly does not bother me. All I know is there is a creator of mankind watch and recording all the we do and one day we will answer questions in front of Him. As far as I know, no religion in world that preaches violence and evil. If you look around you and conclude that Islam evil, then renounce all your relationship with you muslim friends, relations, business partners since they may kill you someday.

    Please open your eyes people, because a few people who share ceretain believe misbehaves does not mean all have misbehaved. If you can’t think in this way, then it’s too bad. Believe what you want to believe, it still will not change anything.

  54. Alhamdulilahi lezi akmola dino uh summo solaatu ala rosuli muhammadin s.a.w may the peace of allah be with everyone of you but first of all point of correction to you pple that gives the riligion islam names which are unfairs be careful precisely do you pple heard that the law was raised by a well islamic schoolar but whether you like it or not islam is still the right path which no one can ever change asallam aleikum 08186093731
