Sex & the Umma

Wednesday, June 09, 2004
So Mahmood posted something about Asra Nomani's movement for women to take back their mosques. Well if you're not familiar with her, she writes a column with Mohja Kahf called "Sex & the Umma on the Muslim Wakeup website. The ladies explore the very taboo subject of sexuality in Islam. Be warned though, it may not go along with your preconceived notions of "Islamic etiquette". This is exactly the point she is making. Here is an excerpt:
“Do we get dick in heaven?” my best friend’s Aunt Maryam whispers to me during the ladies’ Quran study halaqa at the Jersey City Mosque. We are doing “The Merciful,” the chapter of the Quran where all the sexy virgin babes are promised to men in paradise. “Men get pussy. Do we get dick?” Maryam says. I snort laughing, but turn it into a coughing fit and cover it with the scalloped edge of my headscarf.

“Ecksi-kuse me?” the assistant imam says in his excessively Egyptian accent. “Does zi sister have a question, inshallah?” Dark-skinned and muscular, he’s sitting next to the visiting sheikh and fielding the questions. This session, for ladies exclusively, had been scheduled on the visiting dignitary’s agenda at the insistence of Nany Elhamadany, the matriarch of the sisters’ Quran group.

“Yes, brother,” Maryam says. Oh my God. I can’t believe Maryam is going to ask it out loud. Then again, it shouldn’t surprise me; that’s Maryam for you. “Do women get to have sex in paradise too?”
