Prominent Muslim Clerics In Somaliland Declare Fatwa On Condom Use


Some of the most prominent religious leaders of Somaliland have condemned a speech gave by the director of the Somaliland National AIDS Commission, Mohamed Dahir Khayre, about the use of condoms to prevent HIV transmission. The religious leaders have also responded to criticism made by Khayre in which he stated that Sheikhs spread misconceptions about the condom. In his speech at the closing ceremony of a training workshop held for the medical staff at MCHs, Khayre said yesterday, “I request you to give condoms to anybody who asks for.

The religious leaders have negative attitudes towards condoms and their use, they said it is against but they are against the right thing”. Mr. Khayre stated that the Sheiks are wrong and argued that neither Allah nor the people would get angry of the person who distributes the condoms.

The religious leaders said, it is shameful to hear speech encouraging the use of condoms from Mohamed Khayre, and requested populace to obey only sheiks in the religious issues. Telling why they are against the use of the condom the scholar said in their fatwa, “The permission of the use of condoms will facilitate Adultery and forbidden sexual intercourse (Zina) which is great misconduct. We shall praise medical staff when they give their people something which is very helpful, but when they try to distribute condoms we shall stop them”

In conclusion of this fatwa which was signed by six famous sheiks, they stated that, they advise the people to the right path and preached the people to try get the spiritual benefits of the Ramadan month and to pardon each other.
