Saudi mufti okays marriage for 10-year-old girls
Jihad Watch ^ | 4/21/2012 | Jihad Watch

"The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)." -- Bukhari 7.62.88

In Islam, Muhammad is the supreme example of conduct (cf. Qur'an 33:21). Thus he is exemplary even in his marriage to a child: Muslims take this seriously and imitate Muhammad in this. Article 1041 of the Civil Code of the Islamic Republic of Iran states that girls can be engaged before the age of nine, and married at nine: "Marriage before puberty (nine full lunar years for girls) is prohibited. Marriage contracted before reaching puberty with the permission of the guardian is valid provided that the interests of the ward are duly observed."

The Ayatollah Khomeini himself married a ten-year-old girl when he was twenty-eight. Khomeini called marriage to a prepubescent girl "a divine blessing," and advised the faithful: "Do your best to ensure that your daughters do not see their first blood in your house."

"Saudi mufti okays marriage for 10 year old girls," World Observer, April 21 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti okayed marriage for girls starting at age 10 and criticized those who want to raise the legal marriageable age, according to news reports.

Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Al al-Sheikh said a girl becomes ready for marriage at 10 or 12 according to Islam and stressed that Islamic law is not by any means oppressive to women, the London-based al-Hayat reported Wednesday.

"Those who call for raising the age of marriage to 25 are absolutely mistaken," al-Sheikh said in a lecture he gave at the faculty housing mosque of Imam Mohamed bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh.

"Our mothers and grandmothers got married when they were barely 12. Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age."

Al-Sheikh's statements came in response to a question from a female attendee about marrying minor girls without their consent.

The Saudi National Human Rights Association (NHRA) has criticized the prevalence of the marriage of minors in the kingdom and considered it a violation of childhood. The association has sought to work with authorities to curb the practice and protect children's rights.

NHRA stressed that underage marriages are also a breach of several United Nations treaties including the Child Rights Treaty, which Saudi signed in 1996 and the Treaty for the Rights of Women that the kingdom joined in 2000.

Last year a similar fatwa, or religious ruling, by Salafi preacher Sheikh Mohamed al-Maghrawi allowing girls as young as nine to marry was condemned by Morocco’s Supreme Scientific Council. The council said it lacked religious validity because it was based on only one case—the marriage of Prophet Mohamed (pbuh) to Aisha bint Abu-Bakr.

But isn't Muhammad's example normative, as per Qur'an 33:21?

There are “left libertarians” (whatever that is) who think the child has every right to decide if they want to marry or whatever. They basically do not believe in an age of consent.

There is a special place in Hell reserved for Islamists of this type. I am sure there are some Muslims who are good people but their Imams not so much.

“Isnt multiculturalism grand? All cultures equal,etc.”

Exactly. Maybe we can flood the country with even more of them so as to be able to bask in the feel-goodness of all the multi-cult crap. You would think that they would have turned the spigot completely off to muslim immigration after 9-11, but instead they turned it wide open.

The rot in our country begins at the very top of our government, and not just with the Dims.

They are prevented from having vaginal sex before 9.

That doesn't mean they can't have other sex from age 6 though.


When will civilization rise up and destroy this satanic barbarism?

Never.

Jesus Christ will!

Obama thinks the calls to Muslim Prayers is beautiful. He has to have a perverted mind. What would he do if his daughters were wanted by one of these satan inspired muslim men,

And let’s suppose this enters “mainstream” Sharia jurisprudence as accepted law, and liberal jurisdictions continue to sanction the use of Sharia for “internal community matters.” What then?

It would seem in that event that every single imprisoned pedophile would have a very strong 14th Amendment case.

Probably broken in by their daddy.

What a pack of animals. This is what is invading Europe and the United States.

somehow, someway, this has got to be blamed on the girl....it just has to be her fault that at age 9 she is so morally corrupt that she would entice a grown man..../sarcasm/

There is plenty of information like this available, especially on the web which is now found in practically every home, what excuse can there be for people, especially those in high places to still deny the abslute barbarity and depravity of Islam?

There would be one law for Muslims and another law for everyone else. Why won’t pedophiles just convert to Islam so that they can be pedophiles legally?

"Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age."

There you have it, boys and girls, in a nutshell. This so-called "holy man" (e.g. "satanic lackey") of Islam just laid it out for all to see.

If you want to know how they keep all of those no-brain, camel-and-goat-humping, male morons all fired up for Islam and jihad........NOW you know.

Oh....and a good Muslim mother must teach her pre-pubescent girl or girls the fine art of pleasing her Muslim man/master, in and out of the bedroom....but especially in, donchaknow.

Sick motherf***ers.

“...that she would entice a grown man.”

You’re so right. That’s what these savages do. Blame everything on women, infidels, etc. and justify everything as demanded by their POS holy book.

This sick, ridiculous bs is just one example that proves Islam is fake and all lies. Muhammad invented Islam just to gain power and conquer the world.

It is a power greater than you or I. It is against a principality, and the power over it.

Praise G_d in the most high. His will be done.

His Darkness would find away to justify-away his girls if it fit the narative: my girls were old enough to understand, you see, these blossoming young girls were very intellecual for their age, and understood more than an average 21 year old the benefits of being exclusively selected for their grace and humanity; or, my daughters are conscious of the fact that woman all over the world have it very bad, but that they have men who would fight an army to defend them. As everyone well knows, I won’t be around forever to protect them, and my precious wife too, that is, unless my god gives me a reprieve( ha ha, chuckle chuckle, wink wink). I find that specimen Barack repulsive to hear or even glance at, and the serpents and bottom feeders I have even worse distain for.

This sahih hadieth points to mohammad being able to at least write while the koran say mohammad is illiterate.

Even 2000 years ago people knew 9 or 10 was too young. Islam is a sex cult for pedos and rapists.

You can’t say it any more accurately.

"Saudi mufti okays forced marriage for 10 year old girls"

Fixed. Nobody believes any of these girls are consenting to being married or to having sex.
