Islam and prostitution

Reader comment on item: Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Sep 21, 2013 at 09:26

Thank you Dr. Pipes for reminding the world about this ridiculous jihad al-Nikah

jihad al-nikah [Arabic: jihad marriage]

The word Nikah really is a vulgar word to most Arabs for sex and it really means الزواج (pairing as in pairing male and female animals or marriage if you wish) but it is really about sex and it is reallly the equivalent to the vulgar word in English: Fu*king and in Egyptian Arabic it is نيك or Naik

So it becmoes very clear that this is no more than Islamic prostitution not unlike the Shia زواج المتعة or zawaj al-mut3a and it seems to me that the Shia are not willing to use this vulgar word nikah

And for those of you that can read Arabic here is the dictionary word al-nikah

http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A&word=%D9%86%D9%83%D8%A7%D8%AD

And here is more from the dictionary

العقد على الاستمتاع بالمرأة مدة معينة مقابل مهر معين

Or the contract made in-order to enjoy (have sex with) a woman for a specific period of time and in exchange there is a payment of a dowery (read this as fee for service)

It is all in black and white
