Muslims often pretend that the whole non-islamic world is Christian, so that they can then falsely accuse Christianity of the ills of - particularly western culture - such as those embodied by Hollywood including fornication, adultery, pornography, and the rest of the things that plague the Godless portion of world civilization.
1Cr 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
As detailed in another thread, Muhammad was guilty of transgressing virtually every item warned about in the verse above. Beyond the broader more fundamental allowances of sanctioning the slaughter of innocents through imperialistic conquest, capture and sexual enslavement of women as spoils of war, slave trading, theft of the property of others and license to have four wives, are more subtle allowances for Muhammad’s followers such as temporary marriage, or "misyar".
People have been fooled into believing Muhammadanism is a religion inspired by God, even though it condones adultery and fornication
, as long as a temporary "marriage" contract is created between the 2 parties, before they engage in that adultery and fornication.
So for the convenience of the horny Muhammadan traveler we have the "misyar" or temporary "traveler's marriage".http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikah_Misyar#Background_and_causes
"Some people consider that the misyar marriage can meet the needs of young people whose resources are too limited to settle down in a separate home; of divorcees, widows or widowers, who have their own residence and their own financial resources but cannot, or do not want to marry again according to the usual formula; and of slightly elder people who have not tasted the joys of marriage.
Islamic lawyers add that this type of marriage fits the needs of a conservative society which punishes “zina” (fornication) and other sexual relationships which are established outside a marriage contract. Thus, some Muslim foreigners working in the Persian Gulf countries prefer to engage in the misyar marriage rather than live alone for years. Many of them are actually already married with wives and children in their home country, but they cannot bring them to the region."
[pete note] Isn't it lucky that they won't have to have been guilty of fornication and adultery thanks to a temporary "marriage" contract! Whew! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikah_Misyar#Misyar_marriage_in_practice
"In addition to the preceding cases, wealthy Arab men
sometimes enter into a Misyar marriage while on vacation, in order to have sexual relations with another woman without committing the sin of zina. They usually divorce the women once their holiday is over. However, that if this is understood by both parties at the time of conclusion of the marriage contract (and this is usually the case), this would constitute a fixed time period, effectively making such a marriage invalid in Sunni law, and more akin to the Nikah Mut'ah.
The Sheikh of al-Azhar Mosque Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi and theologian Yusuf Al-Qaradawi note, in their writings and in their lectures, that a major proportion of the men who take a spouse in the framework of the misyar marriage are already married men.
Many of the men involved would not marry a second wife within the regime of normal Islamic polygamy, because of the heavy financial burdens, moral obligations & responsibilities it places on the husband. But, they opt for the option of misyar marriage when the theologians declare it licit."Do you suppose that Islamic wives that travel are given the same option?
Or would they more likely get the ole....or
