It is of course ridiculous to suggest that islam rejects technology and science. Indeed technology in islam is at the heart of the relationship between a man and a woman. Only this last week, my old mate the Grand Mufti of Dubai Ahmed al-Haddad confirmed that a muslim man can divorce using mobile phone text or SMS. What an insightful application of doctrine to modern life.

I remember reading in the past that Malaysia and Singapore both allowed this practice for a while and when the divorce texting got a bit out of hand their courts blocked the practice. But the crazies mussalman of Dubai know better.
