The number of ridiculous fatwas issued by self-appointed flag bearers of faith is increasing day by day. It’s gotten to the point that one just says enough is enough. These outright bizarre fatwas give a really bad reputation to the religion and enable Islamophobes to spread further misconceptions about Islam. With their superficial understanding of faith, the outlandish claims made by these preachers can be dangerous. As in it can create unrest in society for no apparent reason.

There was also the time when a Moroccan Imam claimed that it is ok for men with ‘ugly’ wives to get high before having sex
“This is the ideal men who are unfortunately married with ugly-looking wives so that they can see them, under the effects of the drugs, as beautiful women, like Houris or lovely nymphs”, these were his exact words.
