Checking Your Brain–What Prompted It

November 29, 2007

Just thought I’d post, real quick, the foremost two bits of “knowledge” that prompted the previous entry.

One- Someone said that a scholar told them, if we had to choose between the Qur’an and the Sunnah to remain while the other was lost, it would be better to have the Sunnah because it is more detailed.

Secondly- I read that one of the scholars said that a woman should not dance for her husband, because if she would dance for him then she would dance for other men as well.

The first one is shocking because, as I have always understood it, there is a protection on the Qur’an but not on the hadith.

The second one was disturbing mainly due to it’s flawed logic.  “If she would do it for her husband, she would do it for another man” is a VERY good argument against women being allowed to be sexually intimate with their husbands.

As I said before, I can only hope that these men were misquoted/misunderstood.
