Islamic cleric bans women from touching bananas, cucumbers for sexual resemblance

CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any “sexual thoughts.”

The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Sawsana news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve.

He said that these fruits and vegetables “resemble the male penis” and hence could arouse women or “make them think of sex.” Bikyamasr.com cannot independently verify the accuracy of the news item at time of writing.

He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.

The sheikh was asked how to “control” women when they are out shopping for groceries and if holding these items at the market would be bad for them. The cleric answered saying this matter is between them and God.

Answering another question about what to do if women in the family like these foods, the sheikh advised the interviewer to take the food and cut it for them in a hidden place so they cannot see it.

The opinion has stirred a storm of irony and denouncement among Muslims online, with hundreds of comments mocking the cleric.

One reader said that these religious “leaders” give Islam “a bad name” and another commented said that he is a “retarded” person and he must quite his post immediately.

Others called him a seeker of fame, but no official responses from renowned Islamic scholars have been published on the statements.

  1. I credit ordinary muslims with good sense and
    intelligence and i am sure they will take this
    deranged sheikh for what he is.
    come to think of it
    allah created both women and these suggestive
    vegetables.
    he should ban allah also!

  2. As a muslim , all I can say is people & leader like these should first of all know the literal meaning of ISLAM-”to surrender”.
    If they start following even the basic fundamentals of ISLAM (or any other religion , ‘se they are almost similar) , they cant even think of useless & stupid think like this.
    & Maam , you din tell us how come Kaveri’s pic there at a gallery in London .

  3. This may be his personal opinion and need not be represented by the religion as a whole. Wise Muslims do not accept this. Spreading this news only can make women think in terms of sex.

  4. Well I have heard such bizaree things before. People like this cleric should be jailed- sounds like a pervert

  5. Hey Suchitra! I keep hearing such weird fatwahs and orders every time. Why should this surprise you? It is sad that people fail to see logic, but then often the people issuing such orders have the “frog in the well” syndrome. They believe what they perceive is the only right thing in the world and nothing else. That is the root cause of all such nonsense…Call it what you want to, bizarre, funny, sad….truth is the perception and lack of common sense. Anyway, glad to see Kaveri’s pics on the blog…Wishing you both a fabulous year ahead.

    PS: I’m getting married next month. Any suggestions for me and my better half, esp. regarding married life? Do let us know. Kinda nervous that’s all…Take Care!

    Luv,
    Stephenson V.

  6. Havn’t been to suchi’s blog in a while… on reading this.. my eyes grew to be like dinner plates and my brain was tickled so much that the initial hee haw turned into a smile which will be on my lips for a while.. after all it is lost to every cleric that without a lip there is no real meaning to a smile.. hee hee

  7. O MY DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF UNIVERSAL HARMONY,

    EVERY WORD COME OUT OF MIND – SPEECH IS THE MIRROR OF OUR THOUGHT. INDEED, I CAN ENJOY SEXUAL PLEASURES FROM DUST TO WHOLE NATURE OF THE CREATOR, IT DEPENDS ON OUR IDIOT BOX ONLY. PLEASE DO NOT AVOID HOLY FOOD, WHICH ALL WE OFFER TO GOD. BANANAS AND CUCUMBERS ARE HEALTHIEST FOOD INDEED. JUST WE HAVE TO TRAIN OUR MIND BY PRACTISING “BECALM” TREATMENT IN OUR DAILY LIFE. IT IS NOTHING BUT SITTING CALMLY WITHOUT MOMENT OF OUR MOBILE (BODY).
