Ramadan fasting in the polar circle without sunset? Muslims are bewildered.

 During Ramadan, Muslims fast until the sun goes down. But what if you live in a place where the sun does not set for the entire month? 

Ramadan fasting is bad enough in Oslo, with its 20 hours of day light during summer.

Devout Muslims and religious scholars have worked arduously on a solution to this potentially deadly dilemma. After all, nobody survives 30 days without food nor water.

Human-Stupidity can not but wonder why Allah and his prophet have not planned ahead and given instructions for Muslim expansion to the polar circle on their way to world rule.

The Muslims of Tromsø: Ramadan in the Land of the Midnight Sun

Moe, 49, wears a mint-green hijab and is the director of Alnor. She is a patient woman, knowing that it takes some time for outsiders, for non-Muslims, to understand the dilemma facing the faithful of Tromsø.

On the one hand, there are the health concerns. "Nobody should fast for more than 20 hours a day for 29 days," she says. "Ramadan isn’t just for the strong among us, rather it is for all Muslims."

But there are also religious concerns. "Despite our extreme situation, we can’t just make up our own rules." She expresses both points of view as though she is speaking about incontrovertible laws.

In Islam, those who do a good deed which is then furthered by others, rather than merely being gratefully received, will be rewarded doubly in the afterlife. The same holds true for bad deeds, with the originator being punished doubly if others follow him. That is what Moe and the Muslims of Tromsø are afraid of […]

As the Ramadan nights got shorter year after year — and the thirst correspondingly greater during the day — the uncertainty drove Tromsø Muslims to seek out Dr. Abdullah Bin Abd al-Asis al-Muslih. The Saudi sheikh has never been to northern Norway, but he is a highly respected Muslim scholar whose word carries authority. His resume shows that he is the general director of a body that focuses on the Koran’s relationship to science and research. Indeed, it isn’t just the Catholic Church that must address the conflict between science and miracles.

Miss World pageant cancels bikini contest to appease Muslims

Miss World contest cuts bikini round to appease Muslim world

The bikini – unabashed celebrant of the female form, cornerstone of global beauty pageants in the modern era and proud cultural legacy of the 1951 Festival of Britain – is to be stripped from this year’s Miss World contest in Indonesia.

The shattering decision, which has been under discussion for some months, is a response to fears that the most traditional element of the competition could enrage the most traditionalist elements of Indonesia’s Muslim community.

Where normally the Miss World finalists would parade in minimalist attire, they will now contest the beachwear section wearing more conservative one-piece costumes and Balinese sarongs

Yes, no more objectification of women. Now fat women may apply to beauty contests.

Miss World pageant nixes bikini competition in face of religious Muslim protest threat

Who’s ready for the world famous and highly anticipated one-piece, conservative beach sarong competition? I can imagine a scenario in which a Western contestant, keen on the kind of nose-thumbing at stuffy cultural norms that lifted the dreary “Little Miss Sunshine” to Oscar commendations and would lift her to viral video fame, rips off her sarong to reveal—gasp!—a shocking two-piece swimsuit

Wonderful Idea. but

she’d probably earn a fatwa along with her fame.

 

Bikinis banned at 2013 Miss World pageant in Indonesia

Clerics of the Indonesian Council of Ulema, or MUI, said they would send a letter to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to demand that the beauty pageant be canceled.

"That contest is just an excuse to show women’s body parts that should remain covered," said Mukri Aji, a prominent cleric from West Java province’s MUI branch. "It’s against Islamic teachings."

Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a hardline Islamic group, said it planned to stage a protest and called for the competition to be moved elsewhere.

We do agree. If a country does not accept the rules of the contest, it should not cripple the contest but rather not stage it.

What is next? Non-violent boxing world championships in pacifist countries? Shooting championship without bullets? Saudi Arabia prohibits dancing (watch the video at the end of this post)

Nobody pities the poor girls? Watch the following video: the candidates worked out hard, for years, to have a great body. And then, in the Miss World Finals, they might as well gain 10 pounds, as it will not make any difference. Of course, radical feminists will applaud.

Miss Universe Bikini Competition

Most Muslims in Indonesia, a secular country of 240 million people, are moderate, but a small extremist fringe has become more vocal in recent years.

They have pushed through controversial laws — including an anti-pornography bill — and have been known to attack anything perceived as blasphemous, from transvestites and bars to "deviant" religious sects.

Of course, the real wrath of the feminist sexual trade union is aimed at male perverts who would leer with objectifying gaze at the following Miss Brazil Pageant Swimsuit close-ups

 

Lady Gaga was forced to cancel her sold-out concert in Indonesia in May following threats by Islamic hard-liners, who called her a "devil worshipper." Jennifer Lopez toned down her sexy outfits and dance moves during a show in Jakarta last December.

Westerners ought not feel superior. In the USA, in Europe, religion dominates laws on abortion, right to die, prostitution, pornography and often even shop opening hours on holy Sunday. Everywhere, religion interferes with the freedom of all citizens, be they religious or not.

 

 

Miss World pageant calls off bikini contest to respect Indonesian Muslims

One hundred thirty-seven women set to compete in this year’s Miss World beauty pageant in Indonesia reportedly won’t wear bikinis because organizers don’t want to offend locals in the Muslim-majority country. […]

“I don’t want to upset or get anyone in a situation where we are being disrespectful,” Miss World Organization chairwoman Julia Morley told the site.

Sucking infant’s penis is legal in the US! If you first cut off his foreskin without anesthesia!

circumscisionSucking an infant’s bleeding penis, after first cutting off his foreskin without anesthesia. Torture abuse of a sexual organ. An old man performing a satanic torture sexual abuse rite.  Not traumatic for the baby?? Not a crime!

A satanic torture sexual abuse rite?tools-circumscision

  1. circumscision-cartoonAn infant gets viciously tortured  by removing a part of his sexual organ. No medical necessity. Worse, no anesthesia! How cruel!
  2. An old man puts the infant boy’s injured penis into his mouth to suck the penis, to suck out blood
  • By conventional wisdom, sucking the penis of an infant is a heinous crime that will scar and traumatize the infant for life 1 2. Even if it is done tenderly and painlessly. By today’s laws, anyone who sucks an infant’s penis (or vagina), even if it were the father or the mother, would be punished as harsh as a murderer and labeled an "infant rapist".
  • I don’t see concerns about the trauma to a defenseless baby who gets physically hurt and injured in cruel ways, without anesthesia.  And then painfully gets the penis sucked.  See Circumcision study halted due to trauma
