Islam on sex-changes

When confronted with a problem for which there is no direct answer for in the Quran or the hadith, Muslim theologians would  engage in ijtihad (independent judgment).  This is done as a last resort, and that that is the case says almost all that needs to be said about religion in a general sense.

The doctrine of ijtihad was designed specifically to discourage people from relying on their own intelligence in favor of laws scrawled onto palm-leaves and various  scraps in the seventh century.  Here you will see that I have identified a case which would stump Islamic jurors and force them to do the unthinkable: apply their own minds.
