350,000 fatwas issed in 2010 by Muslim scholars... including catnappers, raffle ticket buyers and vuvuzela vendors

The monotonous drone of vuvuzelas that irritated almost all football fans during the World Cup is OK, and it doesn't matter how much noise a donkey makes, it musn't be touched.
But buy a car raffle ticket and you could be in big trouble, and taking an afternoon nap gets the thumbs down.
That's according to 350,000 Islamic religious decrees, called fatwas, being issued by Muslim scholars on their Website in Abu Dhabi.
They cover a vast range of personal and religious questions submitted online, over the phone or via text to the General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments.
Vuvuzelas are permissible in soccer stadiums providing they don't exceed 100 decibels which could damage people's hearing, and it is illegal to kill a noisy donkey, bird or other animal, no matter how annoying they are.
Body paint, henna and make-up are allowed because they are deemed to be temporary, but tattoos are ruled out because they are permanent.
Car raffles are out because they are 'a kind of gambling', and a afternoon nap is banned because the time could be used more productively
