Egyptian Cleric Rasmi ‘Ajlan gave some peculiar marital advice on Al-Omma TV recently.

After discussing when it is appropriate to “copulate” with the “slavegirl” and warning against “‘[irrigating] the seed of another man,” he stunned the interviewer with his simple advice for creating more intelligent children.

“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,” he stated, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“You must repeat this,” the interviewer responded in amazement.  “This is very new to me.”

The cleric then repeated his claim, the interviewer praising Allah all the while.

“According to medical science, this increases the child’s intelligence,” the cleric concluded, driving his point home.

“Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! This is the wondrous scientific nature of Islam,” the interviewer declared.

Not long ago, another Egyptian cleric claimed “Islam instructs a man to beat his wife” so that she will “mend her ways” and know that her husband “has a higher status.”  He continued to say that you should not “rush to beat her whenever a problem arises.”
