Frosty Fatwah: Saudi Arabian Cleric Declares Snowmen To Be Anti-Islamic

220px-Frosty_the_Snowman_GBVarious news sites are reporting a new pronouncement from a Muslim cleric that might be chilling for Muslims who have joined in a common winter practice in neighborhoods around the world. Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid told a follower on a website that snowmen are anti-Islamic and building them is a sin. It appears that sin has come to Saudi Arabia in the form of snow this year falling over upland areas of Tabuk province near Saudi Arabia’s border with Jordan.

When a follower asked about snowmen, Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid was firm and clear: “It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.” Since the snowmen bear resemblance to a human form, the Sunni cleric ruled that they are a sin to make. However, take heart, he pointed out that “God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on.” But God hates snowmen.

Snowman_in_Indiana_2014While some have ridiculed the statement, others agree that “It (building snowmen) is imitating the infidels, it promotes lustiness and eroticism.” Another stated “May God preserve the scholars, for they enjoy sharp vision and recognize matters that even Satan does not think about.” I just hope that they do not figure out that the letters in Satan can be rearranged to spell Santa.

I can only hope that ISIS is not going to now start beheading Snowmen.

Some Snowmen may indeed be too lifelike:

  1. How about equal opportunity. Two snow people with appropriate physical accouterments? I’m sure it’s been done somewhere. Send photos!

    We don’t get snow here so I cannot demonstrate what I mean, but parts of him would be very cold.

    1. I wish I could download this snow sculpture I have that is phallic in nature but I have no scanner. It should do the trick. It actually was all the way from the 70s and is a black and white. A real classic rock and roll lol 😉

  2. We tend to focus on the insanity of the Mideast and tend to forget just how freakin’ stupid they are as well. Crazy and stupid is no way to go through life.

  3. I have to be honest, I have never seen a snowman that turned me on. Is there something wrong with me?

  4. Now how could I build a snowman who looked like the Prophet? We could at least put one of those turban hats on a snowman and a headscarf and face scarf on the snowwoman wife next to snowman. Oh, darn, I gotta go, one of the dogs in the dogpac is signing up for the Army to be a guide dog for the troops gearing up for deployment in Yemen.

  5. ” it promotes lustiness and eroticism”
    ~+~
    I guess nothing says “horndog debauchery” quite like a snowman on a cold winter’s night.

    And I thought Seattle freaked out when it got half an inch of snow. Look what’s happening in Saudi Arabia. It is snowing lust and raining sin. Oh the humanity.

  6. Swap out a snowman for a belly dancer in a nightclub and watch the money flow from heaven. To God be the glory.

  7. Years ago my sister moved to a neighborhood she didn’t realize was a high crime area. She built a snowman and the kid down the block dismantled it. He then put the snowman back together in his front yard.

  8. Hopefully clergy of all religions one day declare that the act of calling something sinful is itself a sinful act. Then maybe they’d shut up and leave the rest of us alone.
