Islamic Cleric Bans Women from Touching Bananas, Cucumbers to Avoid ‘Sexual Thoughts’

I don't even know what to say to this. Thank goodness International Business Times does.

"In a ridiculously repressive and absurd proposal, an Islamic cleric residing in Europe has said in a ruling that women should not touch or be anywhere close to bananas and cucumbers, in order to avoid 'sexual thoughts'. An unnamed sheikh was quoted in a religious publication, el-Senousa News, as saying that if a woman wished to eat cucumbers or bananas, it should be sliced into pieces, preferably by her husband or father, before she eats them. Egyptian English news site Bikya Masr reported the proposal. According to the report, the sheikh has also added carrots and zucchini to the list of apparently immoral and blasphemous fruits and vegetables."

The one true God, not the false god of Islam, said, "Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer." (1 Timothy 4:1-5)

I have been posting lately on the spiritual underpinnings of The Daniel Fast, which are a doctrine of demons and a doctrine of men, not of God. The Daniel Fast is an incorrectly spiritualized corporate church activity in which congregants are urged by their pastor or leadership to adhere to a specific list of foods and to avoid other foods, for three weeks. For those who believe I am too picky, if you want to know how far satan can take a false doctrine regarding food, this is it. Once you are off the narrow path, it gets wide very quickly.


  1. I posted an article about this on my Facebook page. Very ironic that there is never a concern for men's sexual thoughts in Islam; that religion is very much focussed on sex, with women just being something to satisfy a man's urges. Islamic men get aroused by seeing any part of a woman, which is why they have to have their burkas! Even the head covering is to avoid a man lusting over beautiful hair.

  2. Glenn, your'e so right. And why not the undue focus on the sensual and the sexual, where in Islam child marriage and polygamy is de rigueur.

  3. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander---- That cleric should have told Muslim men to stay away from Melons!

  4. They treat their women like dirt.

    I believe these men DO fear what these women are thinking as they chop up a cucumber. They know that it is not a sexual temptation for women, it is a castration temptation.

    It would be much smarter for the men to give her the cucumber, and hide the knife.

  5. Let's look at this biblically. We understand that Islam is a satanic religion. All religions not from God are from satan. That is a given. Since satan made this religion up (a fallen angel calling himself Gabriel came to Muhammad in a series of visions and dreams over a period of years, whereupon Muhammad wrote down what Gabriel said, much of what he said contradicting earlier statements) then we understand secondly that satan counterfeits what God gives as good.

    One thing that God said is that the woman is the weaker vessel. (1 Peter 3:7) She is to be the helpmeet. (Gen 2:18). However, no one or the other of the man or the woman is better than the other, the man loving his wife completely and the woman loving her husband completely, just as Jesus perfectly loves both. (Ephesians 5:22-33).

    Leave it to satan to pervert to the deepest levels what God gave for our good. In the worst of Muslim marriages, men don't love their wives, they oppress them. In those worst of Muslim marriages, wives don't love their husbands, they fear them. And of course, Islam makes a mockery of the perfect unit God formed in biblical Christianity by allowing more than one wife in Muslim sharia.

    All sexual jokes aside, the wider problem is one of perversion of something good that God created (one man one woman, complementary marriage under Jesus) which under Islam instead can become a dark satanic oppressive rule of fear and domination. That's satan for you. And it is heartbreaking.

  6. Its a fake news given by a non muslim. So please don't believe in such news. Islam is a wonderful religion.
