One-Eye Veil!


An anonymous reader gave me this link to check when she commented on my Mickey Mouse Must Die post!


The article goes....

"Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies."


This is insane... now I cant think which is more bizzare! The Mickey Mouse fatwa or the one-eye veil fatwa! What do you think?

"la la things gone far than whats reasonable or ma3qool!!"

one would have thought that the idea was never reasonable to begin with. Though it would be fun to have a bunch of one eyed jacks running around muhallab bumping into things .....

This might shock you but I do see many women wearing it!!

It's a very common thing in Saudi Arabia

This is so F-ed up... Niqab was never mandatory in Islam. It's part of arabian customs, not religion! :/

Aurous said...

women shouldn't show any part of their bodies.. It's a sin if they could see where they're going!!!!! ;p

Technogal said...

Then there should be a fatwa for men as well.. to cover one eye not to see women probably!
