Fascinating Fatwas

UD‘s pretty excited about the prospect of new and noteworthy fatwas coming from the government in Afghanistan. She’s not sure they’ll be able to surpass the famous breastfeeding fatwa:

Sheikh ‘Abd Al-Muhsin Al-‘Obikan, an advisor at the Saudi Justice Ministry, recently issued a fatwa allowing the breastfeeding of adults. The fatwa is aimed at enabling an unrelated man and woman to be secluded in the same room, a situation which Islam considers forbidden gender mixing. The rationale behind the fatwa is that breastfeeding creates a bond of kinship between the man and woman, … thus making it acceptable for them to be together in seclusion.

She is sure, though, that they’ll come up with some great stuff.
