You learn something new every day.

(MEMRI) — Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian cleric Rasmi ‘Ajlan, which aired on Al-Omma TV on January 8, 2013:

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: The Prophet Muhammad said: “Do not copulate with a slavegirl before she menstruates again.”

Interviewer: Allah Akbar! Allah! Allah!

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: And also: “Do not irrigate the seed of another man with your own water.”

Interviewer: With your permission, Sheik Rasmi, I’d like to point out to the viewers the beautiful, civilized, and sublime prophetic language. “Irrigating the seed” means copulating with a woman. This is a sublime prophetic phrasing, which means that a man should not copulate with a slavegirl before she menstruates again.

Go ahead, Sheik Rasmi. By Allah, this is beautiful.

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: If a man is married and his wife is pregnant with his child – the more he copulates with her, the more his semen enhances the future child’s intelligence.

Interviewer: You must repeat this. This is very new to me.

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: If Allah blesses a man with a pregnant wife…

Interviewer: The wife is pregnant. Got it.

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: If he copulates with her after the 40 days during which the fetus is created…

Interviewer: You mean, when she is pregnant?

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: Yes. He irrigates his own fetus with his own semen.

Interviewer: Allah Akbar.

Rasmi ‘Ajlan: According to medical science, this increases the child’s intelligence.

Interviewer: Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! This is the wondrous scientific nature of Islam.
