An Egyptian cleric conceptually violated moral rules concerning women’s privacy


More exactly, Osama al-Qusi, a Salafist or ultraorthodox preacher, declared : “If you  were really honest and wanted to marry that woman, and you were able to hide and watch her in secret, and see the things that she wouldn’t usually let you see before marrying her, then it is acceptable as long as your intentions are pure.”

This is not, however, the general accepted attitude regarding privacy in the Egyptian society and this is why Mohamed Mokhtar, Egypt’s minister for religious affairs, even asked  rhetorically “where is the glory and masculinity in watching a woman shower? Would you allow this to happen to your daughter?” He denounced also Qusi’s affirmations as a anathema to Islam. Outrage from other Islamic scholars was generated about his ideas.Workers in Egyptian mosques will be soon more attentively monitored by the government to limit both atheists and Islamic extremists.
