Kuwaiti scholar says spying on spouse is a ‘sin’

By Habib Toumi / Gulf news / 14 Mar 2014

Checking a spouse’s cell phone or computer without his or her permission amounts to committing a sin, a Kuwaiti religious scholar has said.

“From the religious perspective, a spouse must not access his or her spouse’s mobile phone or computer without his or her authorisation,” Ajeel Al Nashmi, the head of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Scholars’ League, said. “Neither the wife nor the husband may spy on each other or check each other’s emails or messages without a proper permission. Whoever does it is a sinner,” he said in remarks published by Kuwaiti daily Al Rai on Thursday.

By Al Arabiya / 28 Feb 2013

An influential Saudi cleric has issued a religious edict, commonly known as Fatwa, allowing women to travel without a male guardian, uncover their faces and eat alongside men.

In statements posted on Twitter, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Qassim al-Ghamdi, the former head of Mecca's Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice committee, said: “It is permissible for people to look at what is not forbidden in women like their faces and their arms.”
