And here you thought Sharia law was mired in the Dark Ages! Well it is, but that doesn’t mean that the draconian prohibitions on the lives (and limbs) of the “lesser sex” can’t be adapted to accommodate a twenty-first-century world:
An Islamic preacher says that women who keep their social media and cellphone passwords secret from their husbands are violating shariah law, asserting that husbands are entitled to and must demand to know that information.
The Middle East Media Research Institute reported that Palestinian cleric Sheik Khaled Al-Maghrabi gave a lecture at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque earlier this month in which he said women who withhold the passwords to their cellphones, computers or social media accounts, including Facebook, are violating Islamic law.
“In marital relations, the wife must not keep any secrets from her husband,” Al-Maghrabi said according to MEMRI. “If the wife has a cell phone and she uses a password, but refuses to give her husband the password, this constitutes a violation of Islamic law. This is prohibited. A woman is not allowed to block her cell phone from her husband.”
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), the video that follows (with subtitles) doesn’t specify what the punishment is for a wife who fails to disclose her password with her hubby. But if, the recent publication of a Sharia-compliant guide on how to rape and punish sex slaves is any indication, it is something more devastating than a timeout in “the comfy chair.”
