Skip to comments.Egypt’s ‘Farewell Intercourse’ law allowing sex with dead wives sparks fury
Posted on 04/27/2012 2:40:29 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Egypts new Islamist-dominated parliament is preparing to introduce a controversial law that would allow husbands to have sex with their deceased wives up to six hours after death. Known as the "farewell Intercourse" law, the measure is being championed as part of a raft of reforms introduced by the parliament that will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 for girls.
Egypts National Council for Women is campaigning against the changes, saying that marginalizing and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the countrys human development'.
Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, wrote to the Egyptian Peoples assembly speaker, Dr. Saad al-Katatni, addressing her concerns.
Egyptian journalist Amro Abdul Samea reported in the al Ahram newspaper that Talawi complained about the legislations, which are being introduced under alleged religious interpretations.
The subject of a husband having sex 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 sex with her dead husband, alarabiya.net reported.
It seems the topic, which has sparked outrage, has now been picked up on by Egypts politicians.

“So if a guy murders his wife in an honor killing, does he still get one last freebee?”
It would appear that Achmed might have new possibilities, and greater flexibility during oral copulation.
Islam - To know it IS to loath it.
I see a big demand for electric blankets in Egypt. Some guys are so sentimental.
This religion has every angle covered. I harken back to the times when I new absoultely nothing about Islam. My world was much brighter.
So they can continue to do in death what they had been doing in life.
Question:Why can’t you circumcize a Muslim?
Answer: Because there’s just no end to those pri*ks.
Are you the one dating my ex wife?
Rigor mortis starts about three hours after death; it reaches its maximum after about 12 hours. I suppose 6 hours was given as a time limit for that reason.
Necrophilia like Pedophilia and Homosexuality is a preference . Perhaps one day some screwball psychiatrist
will take it off the list of mental disturbances like they did with homosexuality. It’s a sick world we live in.
Now Muslim men can have a cold one, too.
I guess fair is fair.
Now the religion of necrophilia.
Perhaps the next step will be to sanction dead sheep, goats,,,
Just think of it though... Muslim guys will finally be able to back up the comment “Sex with her is terrible, a corpse would be more responsive...” Well, now they’ll have some experience to draw on to reach that conclusion.
This should be known as the Obama/Clinton Law, because they were the enablers, putting these Muslim Brotherhood cretins into power in Egypt.
Too bad the GOP weenies in D.C. don’t want to bring up unpleasant facts of recent history pin an election year.
This is a good example of necrophiliaphobia. Most people who suffer from this disease are latent necrophiliacs. Don’t worry there is help for you. Islam has very strict rules regarding sex. According to Ayatollah Khomeini’s “Blue Book””A man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep, may not eat its meat. He would commit sin.” Yet people insist on judging Islam. Remember what Jimmy Carter said, “Christ says don’t consider yourself better than someone else because one guy screws a whole bunch of women while the other guy is loyal to his wife.” Islam just provides us with a different way of looking at things. Gen. George, Casey Army Chief of Staff, said, “Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy (Fort Hood massacre) was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.”
G.K. Chesterton Do not be so open-minded that your brains fall out. Wow! What’s that mess on the floor?
They threw the women a bone....
"I (Muhammad) put on her my shirt that she may wear the clothes of heaven, and I SLEPT with her in her coffin (grave) that I may lessen the pressure of the grave. She was the best of Allahs creatures to me after Abu Talib" The prophet was referring to Fatima , the mother of Ali.It is a fundamental part of Islam that Muhammad is the "perfect man", whom all Muslims should emulate. Nothing that Muhammad did can be made unlawful, because to do so would be an insult to Muhammad, and this worthy of death.
The Arabic scholar Demetrius explains : "The Arabic word used here for "slept" is "Id'tajat," and literally means "lay down" with her. It is often used to mean, "lay down to have sex." Muhammad is understood as saying that because he slept with her she has become like a wife to him so she will be considered like a "mother of the believers." This will supposedly prevent her from being tormented in the grave, since Muslims believed that as people wait for the Judgment Day they will be tormented in the grave. "Reduce the pressure" here means that the torment won't be as much because she is now a "mother of the believers" after Muhammad slept with her and "consummated" the union." ]
