Grand Mufti of Egypt says men who insist their wives must be virgins should be prepared to prove their own virginity

http://www.dailystaregypt.com/article.aspx?ArticleID=5719

Islam never differentiates between men and women, so it is not rational for us to think that God has placed a sign to indicate the virginity of women without having a similar sign to indicate the virginity of men,” El Gindy said.

“Any man who is concerned about his prospective wife’s hymen should first provide a proof that he himself is virgin,” he added.

Not only did Gomaa acknowledge the fatwa but asked women who will undergo the contentious surgery not to tell their future spouses about it, since this is not a question of honesty.

“If God wants us to know everything about each other, He would have given us the ability to read each others’ minds, so why did he not do so? Perhaps maybe someone would have a wrong idea about you now but will change it later,” Gomaa said.

The surgery mentioned in the quote is hymen-restoration surgery, which Gomaa has declared to be halal (allowed), and Grand Mufti Khaled al-Gindy agrees.
