Necrophelia is apparently permitted and may even be encouraged in Islam.
Historical note from Wikipedia: Singular accounts of necrophilia in history are sporadic, though written records suggest the practice was present within Ancient Egypt. Herodotus writes in The Histories that, to discourage intercourse with a corpse, ancient Egyptians left deceased beautiful women to decay for “three or four days” before giving them to the embalmers. So there may be precedence here that dates into antiquity?
Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death. The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament. It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

The story continues: “The subject of a husband having sex with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death. He also said that women have the right to have sex with her dead husband, alarabiya.net reported.
Just as darkness cannot coexist with bright light, neither can Islam coexist with decency, morality, common sense or civility.
Try as I might, I can't get the five second rule out of my head.
innominatus – I don't think that you're viewing 'right' and 'wrong' in the relative way that most progressive Americans who love Islam view it.
The Watcher – Maybe you could just view it as 'cold intercourse'. In any event, it's the six-hour rule, not the five second rule. A crumb dropped in most Islamic homes in Egypt would be well devoured by cockroaches before six hours (or even six minutes) passed.
Coffypot – I take it that you have not yet embraced Islam… (you're obviously an infidel)
And to think my readers give me a bad time for my WalMart posts.
*Watcher, That's the funniest line I've read in some time!
Here's a new movie concept for Islam's Hollyweird apologists.
Possible Title: "Necromancing the Slab" Shall we pitch it to Michael Douglas?
"Right" and "Wrong" may well depend on your point of view. Of course, the Supreme Court may look at things differently.
Reminds my of my first marriage. If I didn't hear, "Are you done yet?" I would initiate CPR on her.
Started taking a defibrillator to bed with me just because it would make her move at 200 joules and above.
Odie – Reality trumps fiction every time.
LA – It would be a hit in Cairo!
WoFat – Different countries, different customs
Sig94 – The advantage of having sex with a corpse is that there is no annoying foreplay. BANG – straight to work.
Yep, there are some 'strange' things in that religion… And of course the left will ignore this too!
"Virtual Mirage" has been included in this weeks Sites To See. I hope this helps to attract many new visitors here.
Old NFO – I wonder if the whole 'opiate of the masses' thing is better served by authorizing you to have sex with a dead spouse. How many Egyptians – and indeed, Muslims worldwide, will decide to participate?
Jerry E. Beuterbaugh – thanks for promoting this site.
A Muslim person who I know e-mailed me and said that the Egyptian law only applied to a male who has vaginal sex with his dead wife. He included the following citations in support of his assertions:
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2157 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: ‘He who has intercourse with his wife through her anus is accursed.’
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3192 Narrated by Khuzaymah ibn Thabit
The Prophet (saws) said, "Allah is not ashamed of the Truth! Do not have intercourse with women through the anus."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3195 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah will not look at a man who has intercourse with a man or a woman through the anus."
Thanks Abu, this added a lot to the conversation on this blog. For the sake of the readers, please don't take this as condoning anal sex with your dead spouse.
Islam has to be the religion of evil, if it is a religion at all. It is more of a tractate for political and social conquest.
A woman's lot is in the morgue, apparently.
Opus #6 – It would seem that adopting Sharia Law would make what was formerly taboo into acceptable perversion.
Good day all, You speak of ancient Egypt which is pre- Islamic and has no links to Islam and it's beautiful teachings. All I see here is Islamophobia which you are not to blame for because why learn about another religion when you can just sit back and make up lies … it's much easier.Please keep this this in mind, in Islam, the dead have to be buried within 4 hours max. There is no mummifying or any of that ancient Egyptian BS. Take time to learn about Islam before passing judgement, you will be surprised at what you will find.
(1) I cited the sourcing on this. It's not a lie.
(2) You posted anonymously. Why do you hide your identity? Are you somehow ashamed?
(3) Islamophobia? Does anything here indicate that I fear Islam?
(4) I think that it's creepy to want to have intercourse with your deceased wife. You somehow justify that as acceptable because Islam condones it. REALLY? Mr./Ms. Anonymous, you really need to consider what is 'normal' and what is not whether or not it comes with an Islamic tag on it.
