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.

No difference between Islam and Christianity.
So if a guy murders his wife in an honor killing, does he still get one last freebee?
Not only is it the religion of peace, it is also the religion of love.
Pretty soon it will happen in America, a Moslem will want to have sex with his recently diseased 14 year old wife.
I swear they will be worse than Nazi Zombies.
What part of filthy savage unsophisticated sick subhuman animals did I stutter on...
Well, there goes the old “I have a headache excuse...”
Sorry I meant recently departed though anyone that is a follower of Islam does have an infection within them.
“Over my dead body” will have a new meaning now.
Uhh, I just grossed myself out! Islam disgusts me and every time I think they can NOT possibly be any more depraved another of these nasty reports shows up!
I guess its possible some would not be able to tell a difference...
I wonder if he would eventually come around? A really committed Liberal would view this story in two ways: an initial view, and then an "enlightened" view:
1) No way! There's no evidence! You're making this stuff up! That's just crazy talk! It isn't happening!
2) Well, you know, cultures are different, and who are we to judge, and it's really just sex, and maybe if we allowed this in our country people wouldn't be so uptight. It's for the
children. It's for the wife. It's for the ... well, let's not argue theology. I wouldn't want to be judgmental -- that would be so evil and Christian.
Oh baby, you’re so cold.
Still no major retractions yet. Wouldn’t surprise me if it suddenly turned out to be true, certainly not in a country that has been engaging in “virginity tests” and molesting women in that manner.
Islam: Direct from the anus of Satan.
This is sub-animal.
Are the wives allowed one last stiff one?
They prefer their live sheep, goats and small boys, anyway.
What’s one dead wife more or less when you have three or more left over—after all, WHO’S COUNTING?
The only ethical or moral difference between islam and NAMBLA is....
Give me a few minutes, I’ll think of something.
“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." ]
Nope: take comfort that you were not alone with the same issue.... :]
Women can have sex with their dead husband... How? Popsicle sticks and duct tape?! Never mind... I don’t want to know.
Obummer is a ``Corpse-Man.``
Ha ha...maybe you missed the "ex-wife part of my message. :)
Ran across a 2007 article saying there were nine states at the time where necrophilia was not a crime.
Should also point out that this MAY have been submitted to Parliament. It has not passed.
Some idiot could submit a similar bill to any state legislature or Congress tomorrow. His doing so would tell us nothing, of itself, about America. Except that there are idiots here, like everywhere else.
wonder where the “6 hour” rule comes from?
No I don’t want to read the whole article.
Read once that King Herod had his wife Mariamne killed and then preserved her body in honey so he could continue having sex with her.
As if we needed even more evidence that Islam is a brainchild of Satan. Necrophilia. Check.
This is the sickest thing I’ve ever heard of.
What kind of brainless savages would propose a law like this?
Begs the question Who would even think of something this psychotic?
Reminds me of the Alice Cooper Tune “I Love the Dead”:
I love the dead before they’re cold
Their bluing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see nothing
I love the dead before they rise
No farewells, no goodbyes
I never even knew your now-rotting face
While friends and lovers mourn your silly grave
I have other uses for you, darling!
I love the dead (x18)
I love the dead before they’re cold
Their bluing flesh for me to hold
Cadaver eyes upon me see... nothing!
Can’t wait until I see him in concert again!
