A top Egyptian scholar stirred controversy this week after he issued a fatwa restricting the places that Muslims can listen to the Quran, which had been vehemently rejected by the government in Cairo. Sheikh Gamal Qutb, former head of the Fatwa Committee at the world's top Sunni institution al-Azhar, issued a fatwa which states that people should not listen to recitations of Islam's holy book while at work, on public transport or in stores.
