Breastfeeding fatwa causes stir
One of Sunni Islam's most prestigious institutions is to discipline a cleric after he issued a decree allowing women to breastfeed their male colleagues.
Dr Izzat Atiya of Egypt's al-Azhar University said it offered a way around segregation of the sexes at work.
His fatwa stated the act would make the man symbolically related to the woman and preclude any sexual relations.
The president of al-Azhar denounced the fatwa, which Dr Atiya has since retracted, as defamatory to Islam.
According to Islamic tradition, or Hadith, breast-feeding establishes a degree of maternal relation, even if a woman nurses a child who is not biologically hers.
In his fatwa, Dr Atiya, the head of al-Azhar's Department of Hadith, said such teachings could equally apply to adults.
He said that if a woman fed a male colleague "directly from her breast" at least five times they would establish a family bond and thus be allowed to be alone together at work.
"Breast feeding an adult puts an end to the problem of the private meeting, and does not ban marriage," he ruled.
"A woman at work can take off the veil or reveal her hair in front of someone whom she breastfed."
The legal ruling sparked outrage throughout Egypt and the Arab world.
On Sunday, Dr Atiya retracted it, saying it had been the result of a "bad interpretation of a particular case" during the time of the Prophet Muhammad.
Egypt's minister of religious affairs, Mahmoud Zaqzouq, has called for future fatwas to "be compatible with logic and human nature".

Narrated Yahya from Malik from Ibn Shihab that he was asked about breastfeeding of adults so He said: Orwa ibn zubair told me that Abu Hudhaifah Ibn Otbah Ibn Rabee'a and he was from the companions of Rasool Allah .....so Ayesha used this about men She liked to visit her so She used to order her sister Umm-Kulthoom Daughter of Abu bakr..and Her Nieces to Breastfeed everyone She wanted to visit her (see her without hijab)
and the rest of wives of the Prophet refused to accept anyone with these sucklings to visit them (without hijab) ......
there is another hadith in nisai
so this is the ugly sunnah of ayesha is now became the part of ahl-sunnah socialism by the verdict of al-azhar university !
