Child Brides in Saudi Arabia?

Usually, nothing coming out of Saudi Arabia surprises me. Yet, this story shocked me to the core. According to a report by CNN, a Saudi judge recently refused to annul the marriage of an “eight-year-old girl to a 47-year-old man.” The annulment petition was brought by the girl’s mother, and the judge dismissed it because, she “is not the legal guardian of the girl,” according to the mother’s lawyer Abdullah al-Jutaili.

The girl’s father arranged the marriage in order to settle his debts with the man. Bu–let us all breathe a sigh of relief here–the judge asked for a pledge from the husband that he would not consummate the marriage until after she reached puberty. After she reaches puberty, the judge ruled, the girl will have the right to request a divorce. But until then, it seems, she
is property of a man almost six times her age.

As a father of an eight-year-old daughter, this story boggles the mind and shocks the conscience. There are many things that are not clear from the article: One of these is the question of whether the father was compelled to “sell” his daughter because of his debt. If so, this is perhaps the most heinous forms of “riba,” or usury, I have ever seen. The 47-year old man should have followed the Qu’ranic injunction of being kind to debtors when they can’t pay off their debts.

When I read stories like these, it makes me wonder whether female infanticide will once again rear its ugly head. Islam came to liberate us from the ugliness of human character, but, sadly it seems, old habits die hard.

This is an incredibly tragic and repugnant story — a 47 year old man and an 8 year old girl married. What a peverse situation, it screams pedaphilia. We all know that girls are now reaching puberty at an early age — some as young as 8 years old. Puberty is the beginning of the maturation process, not the conclusion. Girls on the onset of their menstraul period are not meant biological to start reproducing. Underage girls having babies often leads to horrible complications because their pelvic bones are not developed in the regards to giving birth. This is sick! So when she is 13 and menstuating her 54 year old pedophile husband can have his way with her? This is has nothing to do with Islam, this has to do with the subjugation, oppresion, and treating women/girls as second class citizens. It is time to put our words into action.

ISLAM & MARRIAGE

[017:034] Come not nigh to the orphan’s property except to improve it, until he

attains the ”age of full strength”; and fulfill (every) ”engagement”, for

(every) engagement will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).[MARRIAGE IS AN

ENGAGEMENT]

024:059] But when the children among you ”come of age”, let them (also) ask for

”permission”, as do those senior to them (in age): Thus does God make clear His

Signs to you: for God is full of knowledge and wisdom.

24:58. O you who believe! Let your legal slaves and slave-girls, and those among

you who have not come to the *******age of puberty ask your permission*******

(before they come to your presence) on three occasions;

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 8 :: Hadith 465

Narrated ‘Aisha:

(the wife of the Prophet) I had seen my parents following Islam since****** I

attained the age of puberty********. Not a day passed but the Prophet visited us,

both in the mornings and evenings. My father Abii Bakr thought of building a mosque

in the courtyard of his house and he did so.

Bukhari :: Book 9 :: Volume 86 :: Hadith 101

Narrated ‘Aisha:

Allah’s Apostle said, “It is essential to have the *****consent of a virgin (for

the marriage)****. I said, “A virgin feels shy.” The Prophet; said, “Her silence

means her consent.” Some people said, “If a man falls in love with an orphan slave

girl or a virgin and she refuses (him) and then he makes a trick by bringing two

false witnesses to testify that he has married her, and then ****she attains the

age of puberty ******and agrees to marry him and the judge accepts the false

witness and the husband knows that the witnesses were false ones, he may consummate

his marriage.”

Men/women acquire the knowledge of sex after the puberty:

Sayyidah Aisha said: When a girl is nine years old, she is a woman (meaning, she

has attained puberty).‘ (Tirmidhi, Hadith 1109)

FOR MARRIAGE GIRL MUST PASSED THEIR PUBERTY LEVEL.

married her against her will, so the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) allowed her to

exercise her choice.

WHO R PROMOTE PEDOPHILES?

CHRISTIANITY:

“They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every

man……..Now kill all the boys [innocent kids]. And kill every woman who has

slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a

man. (Numbers 31:7,17-18)”

“….The Tannaïtic Midrash Sifre to Numbers in §157 comments on the above quoted

commandment of MOSES to kill the Midianite women as well as the male children….”

“….According to the Tannaïte Rabbis, MOSES therefore had ordered the Israelites

to kill all women older than three years and a day, because they were “suitable for

having sexual relations.” [138]….”

“Said Rabbi Joseph, “Come and take note: A girl three years and one day old is

betrothed by intercourse…..”

“A girl three years and one day old is betrothed by intercourse. “A girl three

years old may be betrothed through an act of sexual intercourse,” the words of R.

Meir. And sages say, “Three years and one day old.”…..”

1- The Bible’s Prophets, and even Roman Emperors married girls as young as 8! [

Roman Emperors DIR Agnes of France. ]

2- Mary got pregnant between the ages of 11 and 14 .

Regarding the Marriage of Mary to Joseph, Catholic Encyclopaedia ( CATHOLIC

ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Joseph), says:

“When forty years of age, Joseph married a woman called Melcha or Escha by some,

Salome by others; they lived forty-nine years together and had six children, two

daughters and four sons, the youngest of whom was James (the Less, “the Lord’s

brother”). A year after his wife’s death, as the priests announced through Judea

that they wished to find in the tribe of Juda a respectable man to espouse Mary,

thentwelve to fourteen years of age, Joseph, who was at the time ninety years old,

went up to Jerusalem among the candidates; a miracle manifested the choice God had

made of Joseph, and two years later the Annunciation took place.”

Also, “….it is possible that Mary gave birth to her Son when she was about

thirteen or fourteen years of age….”

4- According to the Jewish Talmud, Prophet Moses and his followers had sex with

girls as young as 3 years old [4]. Yes, THREE years old. You read it right.

JEWISH:TALMUD SAYS

Sanhedrin 55b. A Jew may marry a three year old girl (specifically, three years

“and a day” old).

Sanhedrin 54b. A Jew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than

nine years old.

Kethuboth 11b. “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is

nothing.”

HINDUISM:

Manu 9:94. A man, aged thirty years, shall marry a maiden of twelve who pleases

him, or a man of twenty-four a girl eight years of age; if (the performance of) his

duties would (otherwise) be impeded, (he must marry) sooner.

Vishnu Purana III:10 If he marry,he must select a maiden who is of a third his

age,one who has not too much hair,but is not without any,one who is not very black

or yellow complexioned and who is not from birth a cripple or deformed…”

Mahabharata XLIV (p.18)A person of thirty years of age should wed a girl of ten

years of age called a Nagnika. Or, a person of one and twenty years of age should

wed a girl of seven years of age.

Baudhayana:Prasna 4:Adhyaya1

11. Let him give his daughter, while she still goes naked, to a man who has not

broken the vow of chastity and who possesses good qualities, or even to one

destitute of good qualities; let him not keep (the maiden) in (his house) after she

has reached the age of puberty”

Sacred Laws of Arya:Gautama 18:21. A girl should be given in marriage before (she

attains the age of) puberty

22.He who neglects it, commits sin

23.Some (declare, that a girl shall be given in marriage) before she wears clothes.

1000 child sex slaves

Mahabharata 1:CCXXII And he of eyes like lotus-petals also gave unto them a

thousand damsels well-skilled in assisting at bathing and at drinking, young in

years and virgins all before their first-season, well-attired and of excellent

complexion, each wearing a hundred pieces of gold around her neck, of skins

perfectly polished, decked with every ornament, and well-skilled in every kind of

personal service.
