Al-Azhar: Marrying ISIS fighters for few hours is forbidden by Islam
ISIS claims that the abolition of slavery will lead to the prevalence of adultery
It is unlawful in Islam for a marriage between members of ISIS, and women affiliated to them, for just a few hours before then divorcing and marrying once again merely for sexual purposes, the Cairo-based Al-Azhar Observatory stated.
In a report issued on Monday, the observatory said marriage in Islam was lawful when it served ‘supreme and honest purposes.’
According to Islamic rule, marriage is an agreement of mutuality and commitment between a man and woman.
The report by the observatory also stated that sexual attacks ISIS carried out in Iraq and Syria against Yazidi women living in Sinjar and Nineveh was an ‘outrageous behavior’ according to the Islamic sharia law.
ISIS claims that the abolition of slavery will lead to the prevalence of adultery because the alternative is not available anymore, slavery having been previously common across various nations.
The report added that Islam prohibited temporary marriages because the latter distorted the woman’s real image in the religion, making her an object of cheap and random pleasure passed from one man to another.
The report added that it also tarnished a Muslim’s image as it projected greed and lust, an ideology not accepted under sharia law.
The observatory stressed that Islam forbids the enslavement of men and women as they are looked upon as superior to all other creatures.
