Freaky Fatwa Friday...

Since the occurrence of the unimaginable fatwa seems to be an ever-growing phenomenon, maybe it should be a new feature.

You remember the Breastfeed your boss to make him "family" fatwa? Well, now it seems there's a "Urine Fatwa":

"Drinking the urine of the Prophet Muhammad was deemed a blessing."

And just was is a fatwa you ask: "It is a very critical issue for us," said Abdullah Megawer, the former head of the Fatwa Committee at Al Azhar, the centuries-old seat of Sunni Muslim learning in Egypt. "You are explaining God's message in ways that really affect people's lives."

"We were very angered when we heard about the Danish cartoons concerning our Prophet," wrote Galal Amin in the newspaper Al Masry Al Yom, referring to the 2005 publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that caused an international uproar. "However, these two fatwas are harming our Islamic religion and our Prophet more than the cartoons." (source)

What next, a fatwa declaring anyone that speaks against or questions Islam will be put to death?! Oh right, they already did that.
