Muslim Cleric Promises Muslim Men Locked Up Virgins in Paradise . . . And The Sexual Strength of 100 Men

I recently saw this video on YouTube and had to share it. It is the account of a leading Muslim cleric on the sexual delights that men will find in paradise. We have followed the plight of women in many Muslim countries on this blog and this video reveals the attitude that fosters such abuse, in my view. Many of us were unaware of the promise of the 72 virgins waiting for the faithful in Paradise until we were told that 9-11 hijackers believed in this promise. This video shows a deep-seated problem with women for his cleric, who wishes to pass it along to his followers.

The man speaking is Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid who promises Muslim men that they will not only meet dozens of virgins set aside for them in paradise but those virgins will “yearn for their husbands.”

He explains that they will be better than Earth women who are marred by “menstruation, from blood for 40 days after childbirth from vaginal bleeding and from diseases.” Conversely, “Women in paradise are pure, unblemished, menstraution-free, free of feces, urine, phlegm, children” and “Allah . . . Allah has cleaned them of all impure and foul things in both appearance and character.” He also assures the listeners that “[t]hey are all the same age, morally and physically beautiful…..each of them so beautiful that you can see the bone-marrow through the delicate flesh on their legs.”

By the way, many may be concerned that one of their dozens of virgins might wander in paradise for the first dashing dead Mujahideen that comes along. Rest assured, it is covered: “They (the women) will be restricted to their tents – locked up for the husband . . . In this world men work hard and tire themselves out screwing, but in Paradise, you’ll have the strength of 100 men when it comes to sex.”

The prowess aspects was articulated by Qur’anic commentator al-Suyuti from the sixteenth century who elaborated on such relations: “Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint.”

The rest of quote from al-Suyuti is too graphic to reproduce on a family blog.

My concern is how such views influence the treatment of women on Earth. There is a well-documented problem of rape in Middle Eastern countries, where unescorted women are treated as self-proclaimed prostitutes. It also would appear to fuel the obsession with marrying girls as young as ten.

This same cleric previously called for the death of Mickey Mouse (I had to look at the tapes side-by-side to make sure they were not the same interview):

While I hope that this is an extremist among Muslim clerics, it is hard to imagine even starting a conversation on human rights with a person who holds such views of women. It also illuminates the difficulty in places like Afghanistan where we have American women dying to defend some areas where women are treated as little more than chattel.

  1. Is this Rick Perry’s new campaign manager? Kinda sounds like gays in the military and kids can’t have Christ”mas” in school rethoric…

  2. We’d do well to recognize most of the leadership of the Mideast doesn’t share our world view. We can try to win hearts and minds but it will be difficult in a region governed in many instances by religious fanatics who possess vast sums of wealth. Under those circumstances money spent on defense is well-spent.

  3. This guy just needs to move to Stepford and be done with it.

    For someone, anyone, to have that much obsession with sex tells me that he is some kind of pervert. I have no idea what kind of deep seated problem he has, but I cannot imagine any sane woman wanting to come anywhere near him. Maybe his problem is that he cannot get laid and that is what is eating at him.

    What we can do is wish him on his merry way to get to paradise sooner than later so he can partake of his magical fantasy.

  4. I don’t know. Sounds like where the slippery on which many of the sitting (mostly) repub congressmen and dwarf panel of hopeful pres. nominees are on, ends. (Santorum sure seems a good example of way too much sex on the mind.)
    (Although written by a commentator,not journalist, this click gives a good rundown of the ‘anti-women’ legislation.

  5. Like all Fundamentalists everywhere, Muslim religious fanatics have to be lousy lovers, if their ideal of sexual bliss is mating with 100 virtual female slaves.

  6. that guy wants to kill Mickey Mouse. WTF?

    The mouse is impure and should be killed in all cases. He even has a problem with Tom and Jerry.

    I guess he would really hate Babe and Wilbur.

    Drop Mickey Mouse, Tom and Jerry, Charlottes’ Web and Babe the pig videos across the middle east. Corrupt their children and open a string of Dixie Bones BBQ joints. You just cant beat good southern BBQ’d pig.

  7. Bron, I hate to think of the fate extremists like this would have Miss Piggy and Porky Pig suffer.

    At least, I HOPE they are extremists. It is too horrible to contemplate that this kind of thinking might be mainstream.

  8. Raff, you are giving the secret of the Celts away. Don’t do that. We have to keep the mystique of the kilt sacred.

  9. Raff, there is a good reason why there are more people of Scottish and Irish descent in the US than there are in Ireland and Scotland. It is said that there are two things the Celts do better than anyone else. Fighting and, um…., something else….

  10. Blouise,

    I am so shocked that your mind went there . . . OS was talking about drinking, of course. ;) Everyone knows the two powers of the Celts are fighting and drinking and the gift of THREE powers of the Celts are fighting and drinking and the gift of gab and the ability to FOUR powers of the Celts are fighting and drinking and the gift of gab and the ability to um, er, damn . . . nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

  11. Jameson — triple distilled, 100% barley whiskey. Leave it to the Irish to bring the world a whiskey so smooth you can chug it and an ale so stout it’s better sipped than gulped.

  12. To Anon:

    Your post went mostly ignored on this site, likely due to the so successful propaganda campaign that is now “common knowledge”.
    Most commercials play the man as the foil, who has to be educated, taught proper manners, and otherwise corrected by his wife.
    And the darker view of men is the reason why Verizon thought that the “Stop the Monster” ad was just an unbiased public service.
    That ad is over the top, but unremarkable by its being so indicative of Western society’s view of men’s involvement in domestic violence – that it is men who are the instigators and promulgators of domestic violence.
    And that is just the groundwork of the problem.
    The very term “domestic violence” is now being used to describe, psychological and emotional dissatifaction with one’s husband or boyfriend, where no violence or real threat of violence exists. Once those terms get subsumed into the legal vernacular, they get treated legally as equivalent to actual violence in the eyes of the law, and spawn ever increasing abuses of restraining order practice and child custody determinations.

    Whereas Islamic societies treat women horrendously, like chattel and tools, Western societies have gone the other way, and have made the popular public image of the man as a bumbling, testosterone raging, ignorant neandertal, who must be looked upon initially with suspicion, until proven harmless.

  13. WOW the guy is dishing guilt trips about mice. I seriously would not like to live in the same country as men like him….wait for it……maybe I do……uh oh!
