Muslim Escorts Have One Hour Marriages to Have Sex!
March 24, 2015
Though it is a terrible thing to stereotype, it has to be said, there are many communities people associate with working in the sex industry. Topping that list are probably the Eastern Europeans. Though I have seen no formal statistics, it has to be said, there are a fair few of therm on our website (and we are very happy there are) Whether there are as many as the Daily Mail would like us to believe, then who knows!
However, there are certain communities that you really wouldn’t think got up to this kind of stuff. Topping that list is the Muslim community. I don’t mean that in a bigoted kind of way, but when you have a religion who, in it’s most extreme forms, throw homosexuals from the highest building in town, you imagine that even in it’s most moderate forms, a woman selling herself for sex may not be the most ‘cool’ thing to be doing.
A Clever Plan
However, it seems that the Muslim ladies who work in the sex industry have come up with a way of getting round this problem. Namely, they are having temporary marriages.
The Sun newspaper met up with one girl called Fairuza. For £350, she will marry her punter for an hour. During that time she will read religious texts which confirm their marriage. She will take that cash as a ‘dowry’, £300 of it for the service, and £50 for the marriage.
At the end of the hour they will divorce. If he wants to see her again, he will have to wait for three months, when he can marry her again.
Apparently, according to Fairuza, there are many Muslim women who are using this ‘loophole’ as a way of working as an escort.
Fairuza goes on to explain an arrangement she had with one particular client.
I” did it with one Saudi who converted to Shia Islam only so he could do mut’ah (essentially a temporary marriage).
“He was in London for two months. I was his wife for the two months. I lived with him and I wasn’t allowed to be with any other man. He paid very good money.
He is coming back next year and we’ll do it again.”
Don’t Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims consider each other heretics? Quite smart from the guy, but I probably wouldn’t start voicing what he has done when he gets home or he could find himself in major difficulties!
Does This Hold Water?
OK, I am not an expert on religion and those such things. But I do have this idea the man upstairs is probably quite clued up and he knows when the piss is being taken. This is like some accountant going through your business figures for the year and helping you avoid tax. It may be legal, but no-one is going to say it is moral. I very much doubt their local Imam will be giving them a thumbs up on this one, irrespective of it being very clever indeed.
Then again, it could actually work. I’m gonna leave that one to the real experts on Islam.
In the end, I believe women (and men) everywhere have the right to do whatever they want with their body, as long as it is legal and isn’t harming anyone else.
Religion has to move with the times. That goes for Christianity, Islam, Judaism, all of them. The real test should be ‘are you good to your fellow inhabitants of the planet?’. If the answer is yes, then I’m sure you will enter heaven, irrespective of what your job is.
It does make you wonder if this tactic will be used by more Muslim women in the future? Could this be a way of getting the religious blessing to work in the industry they desire?
