5 Most Stupid Fatwas Ever by Islamic Scholars

Islamic law has come a long way and a fatwa holds a vital position among millions of Muslims devoted to the teachings of a specific Mufti (a cleric). A fatwa is necessarily an opinion given by a qualified jurist that is not binding but is considered authoritative.

It is not uncommon that fatwas are influenced by governments and parties to gain public sympathy. However, since fatwas are linked to a Mufti, the sect comes into consideration. This is why there are numerous cases where different fatwas are issued on the same topic.

Not all fatwas are necessarily logical. This is why we have seen some really absurd fatwas given by different clerics on various matters. Some of these might give you a chuckle but others might put you to a thinking: Kya yeh Khula Tazaad nahin hai?

Let's look at some of the five most stupid fatwas ever that you are going to see anywhere.

5. Emojis are Haram

On number 10, there is a fatwa against emojis, emoticons, and smileys. According to Muslim Internet Forum Multaqa Ahl al-Hadeeth, “Emoticons are forbidden because of its imitation to Allah’s creatures whether it is original or mixture or even deformed one and since the picture is the face and the face is what makes the real picture then emoticons which represent faces that express emotions then all that add up to make them Haram.”

4. Chess is Haram too

The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah issued a fatwa against chess ahead of a major chess tournament in Mecca quoting that playing chess is forbidden in Islam. he said it is a waste of time, promotes gambling and causes hatred among players. However, even the Grand Mufti couldn't stop the tournament from happening.

3. Earth is flat

Since Al-Biruni found close to perfect circumference of the earth, Muslim scholars have stayed away from earth-related discoveries not but not anyone. Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz came forward with a fatwa saying not only the earth is flat but the sun revolves around the earth. The fatwa was part of “The Transmitted and Sensory Proofs of the Rotation of the Sun and Stillness of the Earth” that claims satellite images of a round earth is a conspiracy by Western World against Islam (Yahoodi Sazish). 

2. Polio vaccine is haram

Clerics in Pakistan have established that polio vaccine is Haram and it is another Yahoodi Sazish to spread infertility among Muslims. The campaign against polio vaccination by Molvis of Pakistan sped up after US forces killed Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad with the help of a CIA spy who happened to be a polio worker. As a result, a number of polio and health workers have been targeted by extremists over the years. Polio workers are so intimidated in Pakistan that security personnel accompanies during the polio vaccination campaigns. 

1. Naked sex is haram

Rashad Hassan Khalil, the former dean of Islamic law at al-Azhar University in Cairo issued a fatwa that naked sex is haram. According to the fatwa, nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage between husband and wife.

He further adds that husband and wife can see each other naked, however, when it comes to physical intimacy, they must make sure not to be completely nude.

BONUS: Breastfeeding a male coworker is actually halal

This one is actually halal.

The problem of women working with na mahram male was solved by Ezzat Attiya, the president of the Hadith department at Egypt’s al-Azhar University. He issued a fatwa saying female workers should “breastfeed” their male co-workers in order to work in each other’s company. He explained in the fatwa that  “Breastfeeding an adult puts an end to the problem of the private meeting, and does not ban marriage,”

 “A woman at work can take off the veil or reveal her hair in front of someone whom she breastfed,” he added.

He said that if a woman fed a male colleague “directly from her breast” at least five times they would establish a family bond and thus be allowed to be alone together at work.
