A rare photo of one of the Grand Mufti’s personal candies without the wrapper. Must.. resist.. temptation..
After hearing about ants found in covered candy, the Grand Mufti of the International Islamic School of the Leap of Faith, Al Tair Ibn La Ahad has issued a fatwa.
“The infidels are using this case against Islam. They think they are proving that covering candy does not prevent ants from getting on them. I will tell you the truth. The truth is that the candy are not covered according to Islamic guidelines. The candy wrappers are too tight. Obviously ants see the shape of the candy and get attracted to that. What the candies need is loose wrappers that don’t show the contours of the candy. And look at lollipops. Only one one part is covered. The whole thing has to be covered!”
Mufti Cenk, who was there with the Grand Mufti, reportedly found an ant inside a properly covered candy. Upon seeing this, the Grand Mufti updated his fatwa,
“Ah, I see. The problem here was that the candy was covered in a bright material. We need dark bland colours like black!”
Mufti Cenk reportedly went on a rampage and started burning ants, crying,
“Those infidel ants will pay! How dare they defile MY candy? They could have defiled infidel candies!”
Dr. Zakar Nike managed to stop him by quoting a hadith.
“It is written in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 536:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Once while a prophet amongst the prophets was taking a rest underneath a tree, an ant bit him. He, therefore, ordered that his luggage be taken away from underneath that tree and then ordered that the dwelling place of the ants should be set on fire. Allah sent him a revelation:— ‘Wouldn’t it have been sufficient to burn a single ant? (that bit you)’’”
