Muslims force Miss World pageant to cancel bikini contest


By Secular for (Examiner)  Protests from Muslim hardliners in Indonesia have forced theMiss World beauty pageant to cancel the bikini portion of the annual contest. Indonesia will host the 2013 Miss World competition on the country’s resort island of Bali in September.

On Thursday, June 5, local organizers said all contestants will be required to wear Bali’s traditional long sarongs instead of the sexy bikinis that are traditionally part of the competition. Pageant organizers fear reprisals if they offend locals in the Muslim-majority country.

Nevertheless, clerics of the Indonesian Council of Ulema, or MUI, said they would send a letter to Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to demand that the beauty pageant be canceled.

“That contest is just an excuse to show women’s body parts that should remain covered,” said Mukri Aji, a prominent cleric from West Java province’s MUI branch. “It’s against Islamic teachings.”

Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a hard-line Islamic group, said it planned to stage a protest and called for the competition to be moved elsewhere.

Last November, Muslim modesty police forced Jennifer Lopez and her dancers to “cover up” in order to be allowed to perform in the Islamic country. In May of 2012, Lady Gaga canceled a scheduled concert in Jakarta rather than submit to similar demands made by the Muslim modesty police.

Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation.

    Plucking off eyebrows

    Question:

    My wife asked me about shaping her eyebrows. All that I know is that it is haraam for her to pluck the eyebrows. I’ve already read the hadith about women wearing false hair, tattooing, pluck eyebrows, and placing gaps between the teeth. I need to know the complete ruling on shaving/plucking the eyebrows. Are there any exceptions? Can my wife trim her eyebrows to make them even with one another or to make the hairs look like they go in the same directions (she has little wild hairs on her eyebrows which make them look wild and uneven). If it is OK for her to do so, then I don’t have a problem with it.

    Reply:

    The Prophet said – Allah bless and greet him:

    “May Allah curse women who wear false hair or arrange it for others, who tatoo or have themselves tatooed, who pluck facial hair or eyebrows or have them plucked, and women who separate their front teeth for beauty, altering what Allah has created!”
    Al-Dhahabi cited it in al-Kaba’ir [the Enormities] and he said: “It is agreed upon [by al-Bukhari and Muslim].” Both al-Dhahabi and al-Haytami include plucking off facial hair among the enormities.

    The enormity lies in the permanency of the change as elucidated by the phrase “altering what Allah has created.” Impermanent changes such as dyeing or trimming hair are not prohibited. So the prohibition does not preclude the use of scissors for clipping, and Allah knows best. There are also exceptions to the prohibition on women plucking off facial hair:

    Ibn Hajar al-`Asqalani said in Fath al-Bari (10:378) in commentary of this hadith:
    Al-Nawawi said: “An exception from the prohibition of plucking off facial hair is when a woman has a beard, mustache, or hair growing between her lower lip and chin, in which cases it is not unlawful for her to remove it, but rather is commendable (mustahabb),” the permissibility being on condition that her husband knows of it and gives his permission, though it is prohibited if he does not, because of the deception it entails.
    Mufti Lajpuri’s Fatawa Rahimiyya even states it is required (wajib) for her to pluck such hair from her face.

    Fatwa Title : Ruling on shaving pubic hair
    Fatwa No. : 90908
    Fatwa Date : 21/12/2005
    Question:

    Five are among the Fitrah acts (i.e. natural disposition): Circumcision, shaving pubic hair, plucking out armpit hair, clipping one’s nails and trimming one’s moustache.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] The pubic hair could be removed by many means, but the Arabic word that is used is Istihdaad, which is using the iron i.e. a blade or a similar tool. Imaam An-Nawawi, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: ‘It is better to shave the pubic hair.’ As regards whether it is an obligation or optional, the jurists, may Allaah have mercy on them, agreed that it is a recommended act for men and women, however, some jurists, may Allaah have mercy on them, are of the view that it is an obligation on the woman if her husband orders her to do so.

    Imaam An-Nawawi, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: ‘It is agreed among the scholars, may Allaah have mercy on them, that shaving the pubic hair is a recommended act as well. As regards whether it is an obligation on the wife if her husband orders her to do so, there are two well-known opinions about this. The predominant one is that it is an obligation; this is in case it is not obscene to an extent to prevent the husband from enjoyment, as when it repels him from [full] enjoyment, it becomes absolutely an obligation on her to shave it.’

    To conclude, shaving the pubic hair is a recommended act except for the wife if her husband orders her to do so, or she becomes obscene or spiteful to an extent that her husband is driven away from her, in which case it becomes an obligation on her to shave it.

    For more details, please refer to Fataawa 90105 and 84987.

    PRAYING WITH LONG PUBIC HAIR
    Fatwa Date: Rabee’ Al-Aakhir 27, 1426/5-6-2005
    Question
    Is a person’s prayer acceptable if his pubic hair is long?
    Answer
    All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

    If someone performs the prayer with its conditions, obligations and pillars, then his prayer is acceptable and valid even if he did not shave his pubic hair. Shaving the pubic hair is not a condition for the validity of the prayer. However, one should know that shaving the pubic hair is one of the acts of Fitrah [natural predisposition]. The Prophet said: “Five are among the Fitrah acts: Circumcision, shaving pubic hair, plucking out armpit hair, clipping one’s nails and trimming one’s moustache.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] Ibn Muflih said in Al-Aadaab Ash-Shar’iyyah (the religious etiquettes): ‘It is disliked to delay shaving the pubic hair, plucking out armpit hair and trimming one’s moustache more than the stated period.’ The stated period is forty days as Imaam Muslim reported that Anas said: “The period that was prescribed for us to trim our moustache, clip our nails, pluck out our armpit hair and shave our pubic hair is forty days.” Of course it was the Prophet who determined for them this period of forty days, so it is dislikeable to leave them longer than this period of time.

    Yes, it is permissible for a wife to shave the pubic hair of her husband even if this leads to looking at his private parts because it is permissible for each spouse to look at the private parts of the other as clarified in Fataawa 87701 and 83392.

    Looking at spouse’s private parts
    Fatwa Date : Rabee’ Al-Awwal 20, 1425 / 10-5-2004

    Question
    Did Prophet (peace be upon him) never ever in his life looked on His (peace be upon him) private parts of his wives? This Hadith is narrated from Ayisha (Allah bless her) that he (peace be upon) never looked at my private parts and i never looked at his (peace be upon him) private parts? Why did he never do that? Was that for modesty and shyness? Is this Hadith true? Because there is also narrated a Hadith where Ayisha narrated that me and Prophet (peace be upon him) bathed together in a single pot of water? Was they not naked in front of each other on this event? Is that Haram for every Muslim husband and wife to look at each others private parts?
    Answer
    All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
    It is permissible for the married man and woman to look at each other’s whole body – including the private parts.
    However, it is disliked to look at the private parts as this contradicts bashfulness.
    Al-Dassooqi said in his footnotes: “It is permissible for the spouses to look at the private parts of each other whether while having sexual intercourse or at any other time.”
    However, some scholars disliked that a person looks at his/her own private parts without a need. The author of Mughni Al-Muhtaaj said, “It is disliked for each of them to look at the private parts of the other or look at his/her own private parts, and worse than that is to look inside them.”
    The evidence about the permissibility of looking (at the private parts) is the Hadeeth reported by At-Tirmithi in which it is stated: “…. Do not show (preserve) your private parts except from your wife or what your hand possesses.”
    As regards the Prophet , having a bath with some of his wives in the same tub, then this was narrated by ‘Aa’ishah and Maymoonah and reported by Imaam Muslim in his Saheeh, but this does not imply looking at the private parts.
    With regard to the saying of ‘Aa’ishah where she reportedly said, “I did not see his private parts, and he (the Prophet ), did not see mine,” we did not come across it at all in all the sources of Hadeeth. What we found in the books of Fiqh (Islamic Law) is the Hadeeth mentioned with the wording that we have stated above.
    Allaah Knows best.

    Looking at the private parts of one’s spouse
    Fatwa Date : Rajab 21, 1422 / 9-10-2001

    Question
    Did Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) ever in his life look on the private parts of his wives? This Hadith is narrated from Aisha ( ) that he (peace and blessing be upon him) never looked at my private parts and I never looked at his private parts? Why did he never do that? Was that for modesty and shyness? Is this Hadith true? Because there is also narrated a Hadith where Aisha ( ) narrated that me an Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) bathed together in a single pot of water? Was they not naked in front of each other on this event? Is it Haram for every Muslim husband and wife to look at each other’s private parts?
    Answer
    Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
    The Hadith reported by Ahmad from Aisha ( ) that she said: “I never looked at the Prophet’s private parts and never saw them”. This Hadith is weak.
    It is reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim from a sound Hadith that the Prophet used to make Ghusl (ceremonial washing) with some of his wives from the same receptacle. Aisha ( ) said: “I used to make Ghusl, me and the Prophet using the same receptacle”. In another narration she said: “Our hands would cross in that receptacle and we would touch each other”.
    The scholars use this Hadith as an evidence that it is lawful for both spouses to look at each other’s private parts.
    Ibn Hajar (a famous Muslim scholar) said: ‘This evidence is supported by what Ibn Hibban reported from Ata’a who said that he asked Aisha ( ) about the spouses looking at each other’s private parts and she replied by the Hadith cited above’. Since touching and even having sexual intercourse with the wife is permissible, then looking at her and vice versa is also permissible.
    Al Tirmizi also reported from Bahz Ibn Hakim who said: “I asked the Prophet (Peace and blessing be upon him) from whom should we conceal our private parts and to whom can we show them? He replied: “Conceal your private parts except from your wife and your slave woman”. [Al-Tirmizi]
    So, if it were prohibited for the husbands to look at their wives private parts or vice verse, the Prophet would have said so. It is lawful in Shariah for the spouses to look at each others private parts.

    Shaving hair on penis and testes
    Fatwa Date : Jumaadaa Al-Aakhir 8, 1430 / 2-6-2009

    Question
    Assalamualikum i want to ask i have some hair on my penis also i have hair on testis. is it necessary to remove hair from penis and testis. people say that it is unusual to have hair on penis. normally hair does not grow on penis. please explain in detail thanks
    Answer
    All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad , is His Slave and Messenger.

    It is legislated to remove the hair in question by shaving it or by any other means as an obligation according to some scholars or as a recommendation according to others. Whether or not the growth of hair on the penis is unusual, it is legislated to remove it and it belongs to the pubic hair. See Fatwa 92643 that we previously referred you to. For further information refer to Fataawa 84987 and 81950.
    Allaah Knows best.

    Removing the hair under the navel and on the hips
    Fatwa Date : Thul-Qi’dah 27, 1427 / 18-12-2006
    Question
    Is it necessary to remove hairs from testis(two male reproductive glands) ,hairs which are between hips and hairs which are slightly below and around belly button ?
    Answer
    All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

    The Prophet said: “Five are among the Fitrah acts (i.e. natural disposition): Circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, plucking out the armpit hair, clipping one’s nails and trimming one’s moustache.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] In another narration, the Prophet said: “Ten are among the Fitrah acts, (….and he mentioned) …shaving the pubic hair.” [Muslim]
    An-Nawawi when interpreting the narration reported by Imaam Muslim said: “What is meant by “the pubic hair” is the hair which grows on the penis or around it, and the hair around the private parts of a woman. Nonetheless, it is reported that Abu ‘Abbaas Ibn Surayj said that it is the hair which grows around the anus. To conclude, it is desirable to shave all the hair which is on the private parts and the anus, and the hair which grows around them.”
    Therefore, it is permissible to shave the pubic hair, and you should know that it is normal for the hair to grow in this part of the body, and that it is the pubic hair referred to in the narrations.
    As regards the hair under the navel and on the hips, it is not desirable to shave it as it is not included in the pubic hair.
    For more benefit, please refer to Fatwa 81950.

    Removing hair from the body
    Fatwa Date : Shawwaal 9, 1422 / 25-12-2001
    Question
    Can I have my wife shave her legs, and can I shave or trim hair of my legs and back. Is it permissible in Islam?
    Answer
    All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad , is His slave and Messenger.
    There are three rulings as far as the person’s hair is concerned.
    First: The hair which should not be removed completely or partially, such as the beard for the man and the eyebrows for both men and women. The Sharee’ah forbids shaving this hair or removing some of it.
    Second: The hair which should be removed, such as that of the armpits, pubic hair, and the moustache (for the man). The Sharee’ah orders Muslims to remove this hair.
    Third: The hair which was not mentioned by the Lawmaker, there is no ruling concerning this hair. The Prophet Muhammad , said: “And what the Lawmaker didn’t mention is a favor (can be done or left).” [Al-Bazaar and At-Tabaraani] The person thus has the choice between leaving, removing (partially or completely) such hair as grows on the nose, the forehead, the arms the legs and the hair that grows abnormally. There is no Islamic ruling concerning it.
    Allaah Knows best.

    Shaving the genital area
    Fatwa Date : Sha’baan 2, 1423 / 9-10-2002
    Question
    How much area around the penis should be shaved according to Islam? Is it necessary to remove the hair around the anal region?
    Answer
    Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

    There is agreement among Muslim scholars that shaving the pubes is recommendable for the Prophetic Hadith: “Ten things are a part of one’s Fitra (human disposition) and he mentioned shaving the pubic hairs” .
    According to the majority of Muslim scholars, it is recommendable to shave the area around the penis of male and vulva of female.
    Also, it is said around the anus.
    According to Imam al-Nawawi : ‘It is commendable to shave the hair from the area around the penis, vulva and anus’ .
    We think this the most correct opinion.
    Allah knows best.
    Shaving the pubic hair
    Shaving the pubic hair which is also called Istihdaad is Sunnah due to the preceding Hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (ra): “The (acts of) Fitrah are ten: …and shaving the pubic hair…” recorded by Muslim and others, and also due to the previously mentioned Hadeeth related from Abu Hurairah (ra): “The (acts of) Fitrah are five: ….and Istihdaad (shaving the pubic hair)…” as recorded by Muslim, Al-Bukhaari and Ahmad.
    In addition to what was related from a man from Banu Ghifaar that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The one who does not shave his pubic hair, cut his nails and shorten his moustache is not from us” as recorded by Ahmad with a Sanad As-Suyooti classified as Hasan. And the unspecified man is a Sahaabi and not knowing the Sahaabi does not cause harm (weakness) because all of the Sahaabah are ‘Udool.
    And shaving the pubic hair, plucking it, removing it with lime or arsenic are all permitted as long as the aim is fulfilled which is the removal of the hair and cleaning the place.
    It was said to Ahmad Bin Hanbal: “What is your opinion of a man that cuts down below with scissors and he does not cut it all off? He said: I hope that is sufficient by the will of Allah. It was said: O Abu Abdullah what do you say about a man who plucks his pubic hair? He said: And does anyone have the strength to do this?” And this is correct because the majority of people would not be able to tolerate the pain of plucking the pubic hair. The important matter therefore is the removal of the hair and that which removes it is permitted to be used and to fulfil this Mandoob act. We do not find the need here to use as evidence the Hadeeth related by Ibn Maajah amongst others that state that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم used lime as this Hadeeth is Da’eef and unnecessary.

    Question ID:10379
    Trimming or Shaving Pubic Hair
    Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Karim Yahya, SunniPath Academy Teacher
    Question:
    What is the ruling on shaving the pubic hair? What areas have to be shaved? Does the hair in between the buttocks need to be shaved and does the hair on the testicles need to be shaved? How often does pubic hair have to be shaved? Is it every 40 days or is it true that it cannot be longer than a grain of rice?
    Sometimes when I have an erection or have thoughts about the opposite sex a fluid passes out of my penis, the fluid is white and it comes out in a very small quantity (a drop or two). I do not realize when it passes out of my penis, I only realize after I look in my underwear and there is a stain of a white, sometimes shiny fluid. Is this fluid semen and after it comes out do I need to take a purifying bath (ghusl)?
    Answer:

    In The Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate
    It is sunna to remove pubic hair which is defined as the hair that grows around the front and rear private parts. The sunna for a man is to shave it and for a woman is to pluck it (if she is able to bear this), but the basic sunna is fulfilled whether it is shaved or plucked. It is offensive to delay its removal when needed and more offensive to delay it beyond forty days.[1] I have not seen the jurists compare its length to a grain of rice, but in cases like this one need is typically defined by common acknowledgement (‘urf). So when it would typically be described as needing removal, it should be removed and this should not go beyond forty days.
    The fluid you mentioned does not sound like semen. It sounds like madhy. Madhy is impure, so it must be removed from the body and clothing and its exiting necessitates ablution (wudu) but not a purifying bath (ghusl) [see Reliance of the Traveler e10.5]. And Allah knows best and He alone gives success (tawfiq).
