The Saudi Mufti Abdul Aziz Aal Al-Sheikh
Reports said , that Saudi cleric and the Mufti Abdul Aziz Aal Al-Sheikh has issued a new controversial religious edict “fatwa” allowing a husband to eat from his wife flesh in extreme situations related to hunger in order to save himself.
According to local reports, The Grand Mufti which is considered a highest religious figure in KSA said that this act would show the wife’s obedience to her husband and will show her desire for the couple to become one.
The alleged fatwa has attracted the Saudi Society and made controversy in social media platforms. Twitter users quickly took to the network and express their shock at the strange fatwa attributed to the Grand Mufti.
However, there has been no mention of such fatwa listed on the mufti’s website yet. But this is not the first time the Saudi grand mufti issued a controversial fatwa. Previously, he said that all the churches across the Middle East should be destroyed. He also supported the marriage of minors under the age of 15. And described Twitter as the source of all evil.
Later, The mufti has denied issuing the fatwa In a statement published in the Saudi Press Agency . He said that the religious edict was false and created by Islam’s enemies to slander him and “keep the community busy squabbling over irrelevant issues instead of standing united behind the rightly guided rulers”.
He also added , “The fatwa attributed to us is wrong. It is nothing but lies .. It has been circulated to distort the image of Islam, which has elevated and granted a dignified status to men and women without exceptions”.
He supported his argument with a verse from Qur’an: “Oh you who believe, if an unrighteous man brings you news, look carefully into it, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and then regret it.”
The sheikhs ended by saying that Muslims should stay united against their enemy and ignore attempts aimed to undermining their commitment to protect themselves and their countries.
