Posted on 04/08/2015 6:36:03 AM PDT by JoeProBono
Turkeys Directorate of Religious Affairs, known as the Diyanet, issued a fatwa that allows Muslims to use toilet paper. However, the department reminded people that water should be the primary source of cleansing. If water cannot be found for cleansing, other cleaning materials can be used, the Diyanet claimed in a statement. Even though some sources deem paper to be unsuitable as a cleaning material, as it is an apparatus for writing, there is no problem in using toilet paper. Islam requires believers to adhere to strict rules regarding bathroom use.
When a Muslim enters the bathroom, one should say the Audhu (istiadha) and Basmala and then recite the prayer Allahumma innee aoodhu bika minal khubthi wal khabaa-ith, which means O Allah! I seek refuge in you from male and female noxious beings (devils or evil Jinn). The person must enter the bathroom with ones left foot and exit with ones right foot. No one should face or have ones back toward the qibla (direction of prayer the Kaba in Mecca) when urinating or defecating.

Every Reformation has to begin somewhere.
Just more roll playing.
The next Shi’ite fatwa will claim that Allah decrees the paper should roll on the outside, which will make Sunnis declare that it should roll on the inside...
What they never used Toilet Paper before? ewwwww They shouldn’t have any problems if they were living in Valenzuela.
?This one begins in the toilet. My expectation is it will remain in the toilet.
Maybe they could put their crescent moon symbol on the outhouse door... oh wait.
Well this will save a lot of shower curtains!
Do they use soap, or just plain water? Wouldn’t disease be a big problem?
No wonder they are so cranky!

Islam is a system of control / rules. Socialism masquerading as a religion. It is an attempt to enslave the human spirit by stamping out every last ounce of freedom in favor of laws and legalism.
They’re now allowed to use toilet paper, as long as it’s not a ‘fat wad’ .....
"When you gotta go, you gotta go."
96 feces instead of 96 theses nailed to the mosque door.
No...I told this to some Germans I met some years ago, and they didn’t believe me. Funny...because Turks are something like 10% of the population in Germany.
Oddly, from the Trilogy (the three books you have to use to be a regular Islamic guy)....there’s probably over 5,000 rules spread over the 1,500 pages of text. All from the year 500 AD era. So you can imagine how confusing it is for the regular guy with a marginal sixth-grade education who swears he’s a Muslim. If you had to pick the toughest religion to adapt to...from scratch, this is it. There’s probably even ten rules just over dogs and having a dog around the house (for example...normally, you can only keep a dog if it’s for guarding property or tending to your livestock...otherwise, it’s generally forbidden).
No. An Arab toilet is a hole in the floor and a hose. The left hand is used for cleaning, and washed with the hose. That is why the left hand is considered unclean. You should never touch a muslim with your left hand. That is also why they cut off the right hand for theft.
Glad to hear about another advancement in Islamic civilization. I guess they’ve now advanced (in part) to the 18th century? You gotta love progress!
