View Full Version : dickless muslims?
I heard somewhere that it is a tenet of Islam (or one sect thereof) that men who have been castrarted cannot enter heaven. Is this true?
Can't imagine why I'm thinking of this ...

Why don't you try cracking open the Koran before posting something of this obviously inflammatory nature.

I think this is a GQ.

Can we please avoid any inflammatory posts that can be intrepreted as bigotry right now? Thanks.
We are going to need a united front against terrorism and I don't want to be distracted by having to protect my innocent muslim neighbors from attack by those who can't think straight.

First, castration does not equal "dickless". Second, all religions based on the 3 big monotheistic religions, have some rules against modifying the body that "God" gave you.

Well, just on the off-chance that this is what he's thinking of, although it's Judeo-Christian and not Muslim:
The LORD said to Moses,
"Say to Aaron: `For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God.
No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed;
no man with a crippled foot or hand,
or who is hunchbacked or dwarfed, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles.
No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the offerings made to the LORD by fire. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God.
He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food;
yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary.
And this is from a Moslem holy writing, but it's not in the Quran.
IBN KHALDUN. The Muqaddimah. An introduction to history, transl. F. Rosenthal, 3 vols, London: Routledge & Kegan Paul.
A few points about disability occur in this famous work. Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406) listed four agreed conditions for the Caliph. One stated that "Freedom of the senses and limbs from defects or incapacitations such as insanity, blindness, muteness, or deafness, and from any loss of limbs affecting (the imam's) ability to act, such as missing hands, feet, or testicles, is a condition of the imamate, because all such defects affect the (imam's) full ability to act and to fulfill his duties. Even in the case of a defect that merely disfigures the appearance, as, for instance, loss of one limb, the condition of freedom from defects (remains in force as a condition in the sense that it) aims at perfection (in the imam)." (I: 395-396).

Isn't the OP a distortion of something half remembered from the Old Testament? The Book of Leviticus, wasn't it?
