How Islamic Doctrines Justify Sex Jihad

5897620602068754133As news of the sex jihad continues to proliferate in Mideast media, and as the West continues to bury its head in the sand—here for example is Der Spiegel’s attempt to portray as “false” the “tales of rebels engaging in ‘sex jihad’ and massacring Christians”—it is instructive to note that even the practice of sex jihad has specific doctrinal validation in Islam (which should not be surprising, considering that so too do things like “adult breastfeeding”).

First there is the general justification for sex jihad, namely that, because Muslim men waging jihad have become sexually frustrated in their camps, losing morale and quitting the theatre of war, it is permissible, indeed laudable, for Muslim women to volunteer to give up their bodies to these men so that they can continue the jihad to empower Islam, in accordance with the Koran: “Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain” (Yusuf Ali trans. 9:111).

While this verse has traditionally been understood as Muslim men selling “their persons,” that is, their bodies, in the jihad in exchange for paradise, in the context of sex jihad, Muslim women are also selling “their persons” (their bodies to be used for sex) to help empower the jihad, in exchange for paradise.

Aside from this logic which involves intention (niyya) and the idea that the ends justify the means—this is the same rationale, for example, used to justify Islamic suicide attacks (“martyrdom operations”)—in the hadith and teachings of early Islam, precedents exist that Islam’s ulema use to justify the sex jihad.

Recorded in Sahih Bukhari—for most Sunni Muslims, the second textual authority after the Koran itself—is an anecdote of one Muslim giving another Muslim one of his wives for sexual purposes.  The story is as follows: When some of Muhammad’s followers from Mecca migrated to Medina, a complaint was raised that the people of Medina had better profited from following Muhammad than his original Meccan followers who had suffered more deprivations.  In this context, Muhammad paired up the Meccan Abdul Rahman bin Awf with Sa‘ad bin Rabi‘a of Medina, for the latter to share some of his possessions with the former. So Rabi‘a offered to Rahman half of all his possessions, adding, “Look at my two wives, and whichever of them you desire, I will divorce her so you can have her” (Sahih Bukhari: 118, 1943)

Based on this, divorcing one’s wife for the use of another Muslim became acceptable—indeed, laudable and generous behavior.  Indeed, Sahih Bukhari has an entire chapter (bab) on the jurisprudence of this practice. Nor should it be forgotten that, recorded in the Koran itself, one man divorced his wife and gave her to Muhammad simply because the prophet desired her.

In several of the videos that interview people involved with the Syrian sex jihad, this very same logic plays out.  In this video for instance, one Muslim man explains how he was told that, since he had three wives, he should divorce one of them so she can wage sex jihad with the “freedom fighters” in Syria.  This, both he and his wives were told, was laudable, and so they complied.

Then there is the whole idea of mut‘a marriage.  Often translated as “temporary” marriage, the word mut‘a simply means  “pleasure”—i.e., a marriage for the sole purpose of “pleasure.”  These “marriage” contracts are made between a Muslim man and woman for a temporary duration and often for the sole purpose of legitimizing otherwise banned sexual relations—basically a legalized form of prostitution.  Koran 4:24 exonerates pleasure marriage, as many Muslim doctrinaires hold:

And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess [sex slaves]. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So whatever you enjoy of them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

Although the practice of mut‘a marriage is often pinned on the Shias, it—as with taqiyya, which is also often treated as a Shia phenomenon—often manifests itself among Sunnis, especially in the context of sexually-deprived men waging jihad.  Moreover, it is well known that Muhammad and his followers used to have sex with the women of conquered tribes, hence the recent rape fatwa in Syria.

In light of all this, it is amazing that some in the West are still trying to exonerate the jihadis in Syria from the practice of sex jihad, since, apparently, those “noble freedom fighters” would never stoop to such a level (the rampant beheadings, church bombings, and Christian persecution is all a “myth,” too, according to Der Spiegel).

Finally, below is a 15-minute video of several people, men and women from various nations, discussing their experiences with the sex jihad in Syria, translated from Arabic to English by some of my colleagues (you may need to click on “CC” (closed caption) for the English subtitles to appear).

    What else would we kuffar expect from the religion of peace that gave the world the likes of the creepy “Breast feeding of the adult”!

    For readers not familiar with this creepy tradition

    Oh and ‘A’isha the 6 year old wife of Moe the prophet used to breast feed the young men of Quriash! No I’m not kidding you

    and as the West continues to bury its head in the sand—

    It’s because the Left dominates politics throughout the infidel world today. Indeed, in the USA, both major political parties are essentially two sides of the same leftwing coin, which is why the USA is spiraling downhill so fast. It’s time for the American people to wake up and take action before it’s too late. As a matter of fact, the monopoly of the Left is not only destroying this country via the imposition of leftwing Marxism, but also by allowing millions of stealth jihadists to migrate to America under false circumstances.

    As the the sex jihad is Islamic doctrine from the Quran has its origion not in adivine source but it was lifted or taken from Arabian and Zoroastrine mythology then fused together and then inserited into the Quran as well as other written works of Islam. by wicked and deceptive men.. Now this Islamic doctrine/myth is now part of the whole hoax of Islam. Furthermore, the Bible had predicted about the coming of such false teaches as the imams and mullahs who very throughly indoctriate this type of myth/doctrine as that of a place with many virgins into the hearts and minds of others. For the Bible reads “For the time will come when they will not stand wholesome teaching but will follow their own fancy and gather a crowd of teachers to tickle their ears. They will stop their ears to the truth and turn to mythology.” Second Timothy 4:3,4. [NEB]

    From Islamic Law:

    Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746) – “[it is] obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… Whether the purpose is war, settling a disagreement, or gaining the sympathy of a victim legally entitled to retaliate… it is not unlawful to lie when any of these aims can only be attained through lying. But is is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”

    A Holy Warrior involved in jihad can lie if they only way to keep a fighting man at the front is offering the enticement of a booty call. A man that can’t control his urges may end up committing the grave sin of raping an innocent. Want that on your head? Those Musloids that condemn the zex jihad fatwa better take another peak at what Al-Azar University approves of. Is it shameful? Yes. Is it allowed? Yes. The lying, shameful, disgusting behavior is obligatory if it serves to further Allah’s Cause. Those deficient in their religion owe an apology and a big, wet kiss to the Mujahideen. Pucker up buttercup.

    And so If the Torah taught these same ‘views’ to people would the West embrace it as the West does Islam? I think the Western men who want Islam in America are just perverts who now have a ‘religion’ to underscore or support their evil desires….Rape and ‘sex jihad’ are the same thing…Maybe women are to blame after all, since they just do nothing about this but pretend they are pious…Maybe Western women just want it. Maybe the poor sex starved and attention starved little ten year old girls are just pining away hoping for someone to come and pedophile them in the name of God….But regardless, Feminism in America is just a sham since they do nothing and say nothing about the rape jihad that is going on in the world….The revolution has started and if you don’t know what you are about or what your sorry excuse for a life is about then perhaps you should look at all the innocent little boys and girls who have been butchered by Islam…mutilated in their souls while you were chasing dreams of owning a new car or a new house or a new way of life….It’s too late for normalcy, not as long as Islam is on this planet…..

    Yes, this is only a fraction of the sexual perversions in Islam.

        I wonder how the dark-eyed virgins feel about being pimped out? It doesn’t seem like they have any choice in the matter.

        • N. Wasse

          You forgot the boys of Allah’s little house of prostitution for the likes of Mohamed Atta who was not really into virgins

          • Stibbs11

    ‘Allah’ is an old Malaysian Argument that scavenging Missionaries enjoyed exploiting to grab paid-edition breaking for their crude propaganda. Malaysian courts finally did it. Bravo.

    Jesuits, Judeo-Christian and Jews Redherring Malaysian Muslims not only by using ‘Allah’ as alias acronym for ‘Jesus’ but to swear in bars, brothels and whorehouses to settle wretched rows. ‘Jesus’ ain’t either ‘Allah’ or Saydna Essa [PBUH] or ‘the Messiah’. ‘Jesus’ is a Biblical Deity that doesn’t exist in Quran. I dare Nasif Kayed can issue jurisprudence; he’s too diminutive on this one.

    Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Kingmaker of Israeli Politics, died at 93 on Oct 7, 2013. His real name was the worst nightmare of Jesuits, Judeo-Christian and Jews. Guess what? His name was ‘Abdullah Yousef’. Jesuits, Judeo-Christian and Jews considered it ‘offensive’ name. Since the word ‘Allah’ is coupled it got to be changed right-away. So it was changed to Saydna “Obadiah” [PBUH] the great-great grandson of Saydna Ismail [PBUH] the great-great grandfather of Saydna Mohammed [PBUH]. Jesuits, Judeo-Christian and Jews loathed it because it is ancestrally associated to Prophet Mohammed [PBUH]. Finally they settled to ‘Ovadia’ I am not quite sure if I ever spotted such stooopid nomenclature neither in Hebrew Tannakh nor in Ram Bam or debilitating Talmudic excreta to credit. Sh. Mohammed really wasting charities on GoogledJunk and WikiTrash Horsemanure Neanderthal Nutjob as thick as the author of this apologetic hypocritical trash: ‘Open Minds: ‘why have Malaysian courts banned the use of word Allah’ Nasif Kayed General Manager of Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding.
    I like Friedrich Nietzsche when he said: “The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy. “But the worst enemy you can meet will always be yourself; you lie in wait for yourself in caverns and forests. Lonely one, you are going the way to yourself! And your way goes past yourself, and past your seven devils! You will be a heretic to yourself and witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and villain. You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame: how could you become new, if you had not first become ashes?

      You’re living proof Nietzsche was spot-on. Why did you chose the perspective of an infidel on this matter? Nothing comparable in the Qur’an or the Hadith?

      The subject of the article is sex jihad and Little Slave uses the comments section to splash his latest cut and paste diatribe. What’s a pathetic little cur starving for attention to do? Thumbs up there Little Slave for once again making yourself the laughing stock, another open sore of the Umma that should be put out of its misery.

    Do we STILL have to pretend Islam is a legitimate religion? The best way to deal with this is to laugh at Islam. I almost feel bad about laughing at muslims, because it’s as if they are literally mentally retarded. However, muslims are responsible for the most horrific, oppressive, genocidal, ignorant, child molesting societies on earth. Where can I see the proof that Islam is the “religion of Peace”? Where are the Western Imams and Muslims “jihading” against “sex jihad”? Are they so peaceful that they will do nothing for their fellow Muslims? If the West doesn’t stand up and call bullish!t on Islam the whole world is going to be one great big Muslim toilet.

    Islam: the world’s largest cult.

    Aside from Animism, Islam must be one of the most primitive belief systems on the planet.

  • Philip Eton-Hogg

    The Bible also comes from Zoroastrian and Arabian mythology. Better to reject all monotheistic religions

  • veritaseequitas

    Muslims are a vile lot. This can’t even be considered a religion. It is nothing more than a barbaric cult run by a bunch of depraved lunatics. It really makes me wonder what the so called “peaceful Muslims” see in this phony cult? If they don’t believe in Jihad and all the other crackpot nonsense in the Koran, what on earth do they get out of being a Muslim?

  • nora

    Heeee this has nothing with Islam ,, it’s a group of people who said that , called “sheaah” and we as “sunnah” against this.

  • sacdya

    Well to all of u here saying bad things about islam u should know islam 1st then talk…nway i dnt know why some scholars should give out such a fatwa if one decides to give up his life for Allah and fight against the kufars then he should also have jihadul nafs where he can control himself from his desires bcoz these jihadul nikkah is soon becoming a joke,are these ppl giving these fatwa shiates?would they allow there daughters,wives,mother or sister take part in it.Muslims should know better if possible they should be brought their wives but mutla’ which is a temporary marriage is not an islamic practise its more of prostituting than marriage…Islam is religion like no other so lets not insult it by making it other religions,may Allah guide the mujahedeens an Allah kniws best.

    Now please explain why it’s OK for the top military guys to have little boys taken with them from camp to camp for their sexual pleasure. Yet, they string up homosexuals. Sounds like any other political BS – whoever is at top as long as it’s male, can do whatever they want. What a demonic, sick religion that promotes all the high morality of male dominance sexually and then when they are done, may kill their victim. And they think we should be just so excited to join them. Just the religion for the guy with the little big man syndrome.
