LETTUCE OUT (FORBIDDEN)!
''Today, on Al-Arabiya, a reporter said, clearly mockingly, that 'Yazidis prohibit the eating of lettuce for reasons that nobody knows'. No, we know. It is not a secret: there is a story of how Shaykh `Adiyyah was once turned away from an orchard where he wanted to eat lettuce. ''
‘’The Mozabites are a distinct Berber people who are part of a sect of Islam known as the Karejittes…having a unique revelation of Islam…They adhere to some different views than other streams of thought… They have a strict code of ethics which they seek to live by. The
women wear a long white cloak, which covers most of their
body, with the right eye also being covered by the cloak.''
