Hey, here's a hipper type of Islam... Egypt's first Starbucks-style Café

From Eric Dondero:

Silly question, we know. But how does one sip a cappuccino with a burka over one's face? And what happens when the froth from the cappuccino gets all over one's veil? Is it permissible to use a napkin to wipe it off? Or, would that allow for too many prying eyes of young Muslim men anxious to see a little flesh of a young Muslim woman's cheek?

H/t Iron Burka

The Burka is a horrible legalism; and a hyper-Calvinism.

I Saudi Arabia customers accompanied by women (who must, of course, be their family members - no dating allowed.) must sit in the "family section" where they eat in compartments separated by curtains.
