" In fact it is advisable to trim your nails and remove pubic hair when you make ghusl every Friday. It is just so refreshing and gives you a feeling of cleanliness almost immediately."

so refreshing!

i get my feeling of cleanliness from bathing.

hey, since ann landers has retired, maybe the iman is angling for her job...

er, 'imam' i mean.

'iman' sounds like the next generation 'ipod'

Getting a grain of rice down there into the pubes to check their length, could be difficult. Getting it out afterwards could be worse.

So now we know what the hotties Islamobabes AREN'T wearing under the sheet. I thought the idea of the head-to-toe body-towel was to decrease woman's sexual attractiveness to us easily aroused men. Now I have this image in my head of a lithe, doe-eyed beauty with a full brazilian wax and an inviting smile....all one thin sheet away....:-)

Speak for yourself, I've known some real hot Islamobabes. Not to mention Buddhists, Christians etc...women, glorious women.

Those shaven boys can be really cute too.

Had to read a phrase twice becuase, crude as it maight seem, one did mistake the agony aunt had written orgasms.Sounds reasonable too; can't have that now, can we,and offend the offendi of offendis nice Allah.Westererners, to continue,one mistakenly assumed of the agony aunt, have invented a quick fix which, while legally doubtful, arrests a few predicaments, the internet porn site.

Chief muff-diver recommends Braz for all chicks.

Have I got this right?

I like how the more advanced Islamist world had this knowledge "over a century and 400 years ago" (huh? Should I start saying I was born over a decade and 20 years ago?), but is still measuring hair length with grains of rice. Not millimeters; not fractions of an inch; foodstuffs.

Also, am I the only one tempted to submit wacky questions just to see what the Imam has to say? I think some real fun could be had with this.

For a laugh go to




I'll bet the Perth woman who waxed 130 bikini lines in four hours over the weekend is glad she didn't confront any like this. Get out the whipper snipper.

Now that is one Islamic practice I whole-heartedly endorse!

I wonder how the Iman suggests Arabs deal with hairy butts and backs? And why don't they have to shave their heads? There is a conspiracy of silence over hairy butts which, after all, are far more deeply offensive than hairy dicks.
