No. Really. You can't make this stuff up.

There is no "person" to attribute this ridiculousness to - just a "place." A "place" has now deemed it un-Islamic to wear jeans or have your hair dyed black. Gonna be an awful lot of people on this side of the world that are going to have to change clothes if that is the case. Oh, and there are going to be an awful lot of "gray" roots showing, too.

"In response to a query on wearing of jeans by women... The physical structure (curves) of the body is reflected if one puts on a [sic] jeans. [How would anyone even know that a woman "a" jeans on when the women are covered head to toe in black in yards of black fabric?] Wearing them by a woman is a sin... It is barred for men as well. Women, who want to look as men, are cursed."

"On a query on dyeing one's hair in black, the fatwa said that any other colour other than black is permissible." Red, white, blonde, brown... All okay, then.

Sheesh. No. Really. You just can't make this stuff up.

The article is making the rounds of bloggers across the Internet. I don't know where I saw it to attribute the proper thanks...


  1. But...don't Arabs naturally have black hair?


    Sorry, my brain just exploded.

  2. Most do, Angela. Varying shades of dark brown to black...

    Like I said. You just can't make this stuff up.
