Sexual deprivation vs. other kinds of deprivation..
During the holly month of Ramadan, a Muslim is supposed to deprive his/her self of all the pleasures of the flesh I.e., eating, drinking..etc. which’ll give him/her a first-hand experience of the pains of the poor and the not-so-fortunate I,e, the deprived! Thus, creating a charitable, closely tied community.
This made me think of the following:
if: Hunger and thirst are supposed to make you sympathize with the poor and the-have-nots
if: Being weakened by hunger is supposed to make you sympathize with the sick
then: But was abstaining from sexual activities supposed to make you sympathize with the sexually deprived? For example, to be more tolerant to sexual discrepancies.. such as adultery! Was that what God intended?..
it seems so logical to me.
Why doesn’t anybody try to help this neglected category of the deprived? You see good people -Muslims and non-Muslims- collecting charity money to feed, cloth, cure the poor and the sick.. but never to help the sexually deprived , why? Why not establish a new charity that helps the sexually deprived? They certainly do deserve helping as much as the poor and the sick …
P.S.: hmmm… forgive my strange ideas.. I’m going thru “strange” times.
