Al Nusra Front in Syria issued a similar fatwa a few months ago.

Via Alsumaria News:

A local official in Diyala province revealed that Al Qaeda Organization has asked the widows of its commanders and fighters to abide by “Sexual Jihad Fatwa” as a means of support to its guerillas; considering that such a Fatwa is transnational.

“Intelligence cells commissioned with monitoring Al Qaeda’s activities within Diyala’s borders have reported that the highly-ranked officials in the organization urged the widows of the commanders and members to abide by the sexual Jihad Fatwa. This Fatwa allows Al Qaeda’s women to have sexual intercourse with members of the organization to lift their morale”, said Al Khalis district’s administrative official, Oday Al Khadran in a statement to Alsumaria.

“The attempt to implement the Sexual Jihad Fatwa issued by clergymen that support the armed groups in Syria proves that such laws are transnational. This also points out that Al Qaeda’s course of action in Syria or in any other country is closely related to the events that are taking place in Iraq”, he added.

The sexual Jihad Fatwa made its first appearance in Syria a few months ago and it allowed for armed members to have sexual intercourse with women for a determined period of time as per a momentary contract that loses effect after a few hours. This will allow other men to sign a similar contract and women to sleep with more than one man per day.
