Egyptian Thief Cuts Off His Own Hands To Stop Stealing Addiction

man cuts off own hands to stop stealing

Sept 14, 2013 – Egyptian Man Cuts Off His Own Hands To Stop Stealing Addiction

In what sources called self-imposed Sharia Law, an Egyptian man, a popular stealing addict has chopped off both of his hands in a bid to stop his addictive stealing habit.

28-year-old Ali Afifi lost his first hand in 2008 by holding it under the wheels of a fast-moving train.

Afifi, who posed for the above picture few weeks ago reportedly asked an Imam to cut off his second hand because he couldn’t stop stealing.

Afifi said: “But the Sheikh refused my request, saying he is not a ruler or in a decision-making position to take such a decision… he advised me to repent and seek God’s help… I then decided to cut my hands off.”

Will this decision ever stop him from stealing?

      I think u really need deliverance because ur words doesn’t make any sense.
      “Stealing by heart is like stealing physically”!
      The most funny part of the sentence is he want us to reason to this senseless statements.

    It wasn’t a bad idea for him removing his hands just to stop stealing. Because even the Bible let us to understand that anything that will take us to hell, we should cut it off. Even if it is our eyes that will take us to hell we should pluck it off… So i see no big deal about that.
