I continue my talk about Thailand, Where I saw many oddities and contradictions As soon as I arrived at Phuket International Airport I found female police officers wearing headscarves and many of them make you feel that you are in an Islamic country and not Buddhist, because I found Muslim women wearing hijab uniforms and suits them as I saw in Malaysia but I was not surprised at Kuala Lumpur airport to see this because Malaysia is an Islamic country, Thailand is a Buddhist or to be the most accurate expression of the proportion of Buddhists in which a majority of Muslims.
When I arrived at the hotel and met the Thai Muslim driver and saw the mosque in front of the hotel all these were good new-sings brought me to my heart reassured. Praise be to God for the blessing of Islam and enough grace, when you walk in the streets you see veiled and Koranic schools and hear the ears do not feel that you are in a non-Muslim country you perform your duties in peace. When we went to James Bond Island on our first day in Thailand he told us that the boat was owned by a Thai Muslim and it was wonderful that the guide who took us in the boat pointed to several things, including a boat for ablution and prayer, Cooked in Thai style, the drinks are all alcohol-free and do not offer any alcohol or alcohol because the boat owner is Muslim.
There is an indescribable feeling when you find a Muslim tourist host from around the world and hold on to the teachings of the religion of Islam, although the boat was carrying other nationalities not only from Egypt but from the United States, Britain, Russia and others. When the boat lost it to wudu, the cooks found Muslims and mastered preparing the food with the hijab and with their full embrace, although the atmosphere was rather hot due to the heat of the stove where they were frying the fish, which led to the warming of their place. However, they did not wear hijab. Smiling and some of them being great in age. Muslim vendors find souvenir shops on beaches and islands. The next day we went to the island of bamboo and the restaurant owner was also a Muslim and put a sign written on it without alcohol and another halal sign.
Coconut oil holds the mark of Thai quality and mark (Halal)
The Central Islamic Committee Of Thailand (CICOT)
The most impressive thing was that once we got to the island they raised the ears of the back and was next to the restaurant chapel for the ladies and men. How nice to find your religion in a place that is said to be non-Muslim or that Buddhism is predominant, I feel the talk of the media to try to focus on the word Buddhist is the marginalization of the Muslims of Thailand. The West has always tried to give a bigger picture than its size and what I have seen is that the Islamic religion is spread there and I did not have to hide that I am a Muslim. On the other hand, I noticed the secretariat of the non-Muslim vendors in the shops, as one of my friends went to ask about the temporary tattoos in the shop and came out to us and led the Thai salute and said for you is not available but the penalty is not available to us you may find it on the beach. And also in the restaurant we entered and asked the waitress Is there halal food? I smiled and replied: There is no halal food
I was talking to my friend and I saw a new tattoo on his arm. I was curious to ask him why he liked the tattoo even though I saw an online video about how it worked.
The tattoo and the use of needles that are stitched into the skin to put the ink in the place of blood and how it is a painful process, he replied frankly that he deserved this pain because it related to his past.
in fact I was surprised by the response because I expected that the reason for his desire to make tattoo is his love of art or drawing, but it is a psychological disorder when the person addict tattoo, even though tattoos are not only forbidden in Islamic law, but in the Bible, where there is a proof that your body is gift by God and that it is not yours.
The Islamic Sharia has forbidden tattoos because of its physical harm such as the pain resulting from the use of needles, as well as the dyes and inks used to paint this tattoo and the change to the creation of God “Allah”
In order to delve deeper with you in detail, let us take an in-depth look at the real reason for the prohibition of tattoos in Islam
After searching and reading, I found that the skin is divided into two superficial layers, the epidermis and its cells are constantly renewed and the deep one, called the “dermis.” It is protected by the epidermis layer and is not easily renewed. The tattoo needles work on dyeing the ink inside this deep layer “dermis”.
Is that the fact that these inks are fixed in the body, which prevents the purity from impurity “Janaabah” for men and women where the human when he reaches the sexual pleasure resulting from intercourse or masturbation secrete the body fill the small pores in the body and if the man washed this substance becomes active for that year Massage the body with the hands until the removal of this article and note that the man who infects several of the wings without washing begins to get out of his body smell and becomes unclean and unclean prayers
As for the evidence of the prohibition of tattoos or tattoos in Islamic law, many of them are mentioned that
The Prophet said: “The five daily prayers, from one Friday to the next, and fulfilling the trust are all expiation for whatever (sins) come between them.” I said: “What is fulfilling the trust?” He said: Having a bath to cleanse oneself from sexual impurity, for under every hair there is the state of sexual impurity.”
We heard that the Messenger of Allah [SAW] forbade filing (the teeth) and tattoos.”
Here is a video of Sheikh Mohammed Al-Arifi answering a Christian man on the reason for a bath “ghusl” from ” sexual impurity” janaabah which led him later to convert to Islam
But you will come to mind the relationship between tattooing and prohibition in Islamic law
The truth of the matter is I am surprised when I find Muslim Arabs stoned but perhaps the spread of Western culture and lack of good understanding of religion is one of the reasons that lead some to the tradition of love to highlight his character or draw attention
When you read about the history of the appearance of tattoos, you find that in the past it was associated with a dead person. The Bible says in Leviticus, which deals with laws and commandments given to the Israelites
"Do not injure your bodies for dead. And writing a mark shall not be made in you. I am the Lord "Leviticus 19:28.
They were stabbed to show the sadness of someone stripping their bodies and tattooing a fetish or idol to be blessed with it.
