Your Daily Muslim #685: Ahmed el-Zend

In May, Ahmed el-Zend was sworn in as Egypt’s new Justice Minister. However, his idea of “justice” is what we in America consider cruel and unusual punishment. A staunch supporter of sharia, el-Zend enjoys discussing his love of corporal punishment. “We have in our penal code some articles that contradict Islamic sharia,” el-Zend stated. “I […]

Your Daily Muslim #633: Tamer Amin

“All [gay] rights should be shattered to pieces.” Egyptian TV host Tamer Amin is best known for his absurd views and his unabashed prowess at expressing them. The devout Muslim has spoken favorably of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons and condemned gays. In other words, he demonstrates Islam’s totally peaceful teachings. When asked if he felt […]

The legalization of gay marriage has been sweeping across the United States, with more states joining the movement for equality by the month. However, the Islamic world remains obstinate and steadfast against same-sex marriages thanks to their seventh-century religious beliefs. Recently, some Egyptians held an unofficial gay wedding ceremony. The wedding was filmed, which was […]

“Islam presents polygamy or having a [sic] more than one wife as a solution to certain questions that can never be answered except in this way.” Yep, Ireland has Muslims too. And yep, they’re just as crazy as they are everywhere else. Unlike the rest of the nation, however, they’re quite a bit less inebriated […]

Your Daily Muslim #578: Islam Yaken Aly Khomais

(Note: Islam Yaken Aly Khomais is probably not actually gay. I sometimes put Muslims’ selfies in the Grindr template because it allows for many jokes to be made. Sorry, gay dudes. I know what y’all were thinking, but he’s not going to wage anal jihad on you or let you do so to him. The […]

Your Daily Muslim #576: Usama al-Qawsi

Aaaaaaaaaand the fatwa of the year award goes to… Egyptian cleric Usama al-Qawsi, better known as an out-of-the-closet peeping Tom! Some Muslim men really feel that “try it before you buy it” should apply to women, so al-Qawsi issued a perverse fatwa in their favor. The fatwa authorizes men to “hide” and watch women while […]
