Spying on husband or checking his phone is ‘haraam’: Saudi cleric issues fatwa

JEDDAH: A top Saudi cleric said on Monday that wives should not check their husbands’ mobile phones or spy on them, noting that such actions constitute 20 percent of divorce cases. Sheikh Abdullah Al-Motlaq, a senior member of the Council of Senior Scholars and adviser to the Royal Court, said in a recent address that those who are husband and wife should take care of their relation and believe each other. He said that the wife is not allowed to search through husband’s phone and husband is also not allowed to do so as it is considered spying. He says that it is not permissible in Islam as it leads to divorces. “Spying is haraam (forbidden) and can cause problems, and is a major curse that leads to misfortune,” he explained adding that husband and wife should maintain a trust bond and wives should not be extravagant in spending their husband’s hard earned money. Earlier, the cleric had issued another fatwa, declaring taking selfies with cats as ‘haraam’. The fatwa was issued after ‘a new trend of animal lovers posing for pictures with their pets’ was noted. ”Taking pictures with your pets is prohibited. If not for a necessity, then it is haraam.
