“Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia the grand mufti has reportedly found a new definition of halal – determining that, in the event of extreme hunger, it is acceptable in Islam for a man to chop up his wife and eat her – or one of them as the case may be.

“The edict has been attributed to Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah.”

“The rationale, according to multiple local reports, is that the husband and his wife’s body will ‘fuse together after the husband eats his wife.’ The husband would be permitted to eat ‘parts of her body’ in such cases.

–Just wow–
The depravity of the religion of peace still never ceases to amaze me. Oh and don’t forget Islam alolows 1 hour marriages. I do, now we can eat.

Updated April 14th,

The Jerusalem Post has refuted this claim. The comment below is correct the official Arabic website does denounce this claim. The offical Jewish paper of record blames the Iranians for this misinformation also.

It does appear the official release on Friday and picked up by 100s of news sources was incorrect. Portions of this are attributed to the wrong cleric it seems.

As for the 1 hour marriage this is supported under Sharia law. If we need to prove this I can dedicate an entire post to this at some point.

From my former professor of Islam and Arabic:
According to the verse 4:24 of Koran (فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُم بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً) temporary marriage is allowed in Islam and the marriage described in this verse can not be usual marriage. this verse says when you did Mut’ah you must pay their dowries.
