Talking 'boutAN Egyptian cleric's controversial
fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a
has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.
According to the
issued by Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former dean of Al-Azhar
of Sharia (or Islamic law), "being completely naked
during the act of coitus
annuls the marriage"....For his part, Al-Azhar's
fatwa committee chairman
Abdullah Megawar argued that married couples could
see each other naked but
should not look at each other's genitalia and
suggested they cover up with a
blanket during sex.
I'm really envious of this debate. I mean, Christians never get to debate
about great stuff like this—"marriage is sacred and the bed is undefiled" pretty
