Last week, Turkish theologian Ali Rıza Demircan made headlines when he described “advanced oral sex” as forbidden in Islam during a television interview, as viewers watched the presenter erupt into laughter.

However, in a response to the controversial claim, a popular Muslim televangelist in Turkey offered an opposing view, saying Islam permits oral sex.

“Do not invent a lie on behalf of Allah,” said Ahmet Mahmut Unlu, popularly known as “Cubbeli Ahmet Hoca” (Robed Ahmet Hoca) among his followers, during his latest televised sermon, Hurriyet Daily News reported.

Unlu said the Quran does not have verses that stipulate such ban on oral sex.

“Brothers, let’s speak frankly: [Islam’s] Shafi’i sect allows this act, as it considers human semen a clean substance. On the other hand, the Hanafi sect considers semen as dirty, but adds that a dress can be cleaned by simply rubbing the semen off when it dries,” he added.

There are four major school of thoughts or jurisprudence within Sunni Islam, following different renowned religious theologians who interpret Islam whether it is the Quran or Prophet Mohammed’s sayings and doings slightly different than each other.

The Hanafi school has the largest followers among Sunni Muslims including Turkey, named after the scholar Abu Hanifa an-Numan.

He also went on describing as clerics in Indonesia and Malaysia, who adhere to the Shafi’i school of thought, as permitting oral sex.

“No Islamic jurisprudence calls it a haram act, but some find it inappropriate. So, how can [Demircan] say that it is haram? What is your source?” Unlu said.
