Religious Ruling Bans Use of “Islamic” Mobile Phones in Bathrooms

Top conservative cleric Ayatollah Ja’far Sobhani has recently ruled that religious law forbids the use of mobile phones containing Islamic contents in bathrooms. ISNA News Agency reported this week that, when asked to provide a religious ruling on the use of mobile phones containing verses from the Quran and the names of God in bathrooms, Sobhani replied that, if such a phone was found in an unclean place, it had to be taken out of there as soon as possible and not used as long as it was in the unclean place, unless the Islamic contents were removed (ISNA, January 16).

The need for the ruling arose due to the recent introduction of “Islamic mobile phones” in Iran. They include such integrated Islamic features as digital versions of the Quran and commentaries, literature pertaining to Islamic religious law, translations of Quranic verses to various languages, prayer directions and updates on prayer times in various locations across the globe, as well as live videos of prayers from mosques.

Quotes and Sayings

About the Region, Islam and cultural totalitarianism...

    The consequences of the Ayatollah’s blood-thirsty fiasco could be disastrous for the whole of Islam and particularly for Shiism. The systematic destruction, in the name of religion, of a state and a society which vigilantly safeguarded the peace, could have effects in this part of the world which would be disastrous for sincere believers of the Koran, and even for those who believe less wholeheartedly. The murderous megalomania and the agitation of Qom, combined with the miserable dictatorship of a handful of mollahs, are, I insist, all in direct contradiction with the essential principles of Islam.
