New Saudi Fatwa Defends Pedophilia as “Marriage”

Pages: 1 2

Muslim “child-marriage” — euphemism for pedophilia — is making headlines again, at least in Arabic media: Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, a prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, just issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for marriage, and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.”

Appearing in Saudi papers on July 13, the fatwa complains that “Uninformed interference with Sharia rulings by the press and journalists is on the increase, posing dire consequences to society, including their interference with the question of marriage to small girls who have not reached maturity, and their demand that a minimum age be set for girls to marry.”

Fawzan insists that nowhere does Sharia set an age limit for marrying girls: like countless Muslim scholars before him, he relies on Koran 65:4, which discusses marriage to females who have not yet begun menstruating (i.e., are prepubescent) and the fact that Muhammad, Islam’s role model, married Aisha when she was 6 years old, “consummating” the marriage — or, in modern parlance, raping her — when she was 9.

The point of the Saudi fatwa, however, is not that girls as young as 9 can have sex, based on Muhammad’s example, but rather that there is no age limit whatsoever; the only question open to consideration is whether the girl is physically capable of handling her husband/rapist. Fawzan documents this point by quoting Ibn Batal’s authoritative exegesis of Sahih Bukhari:

The ulema [Islam’s interpreters] have agreed that it is permissible for fathers to marry off their small daughters, even if they are in the cradle. But it is not permissible for their husbands to have sex with them unless they are capable of being placed beneath and bearing the weight of the men. And their capability in this regard varies based on their nature and capacity. Aisha was 6 when she married the prophet, but he had sex with her when she was 9 [i.e., when she was deemed capable].

Fawzan concludes his fatwa with a warning: “It behooves those who call for setting a minimum age for marriage to fear Allah and not contradict his Sharia, or try to legislate things Allah did not permit. For laws are Allah’s province; and legislation is his excusive right, to be shared by none other. And among these are the rules governing marriage.”

Fawzan, of course, is not the first to insist on the legitimacy of pedophilia in Islam. Even the former grand mufti of Saudi Arabia supported “child-marriage,” since “the Koran and Sunna document it.”

    These retards are getting more idiotic by the hour. What do I say, by the second !!! This is a shame for girls and women everywhere and especially in muslim countries.

  • Cal Johnson

    This is so spot on true, i commend you for an outstanding article!

  • SavetheRepublic

    Dr. Salih bin Fawzan is morally sick beyond repair.

    Behold, the founder of Islam…

    "Muhammad, Islam’s role model, married Aisha when she was 6 years old, “consummating” the marriage — or, in modern parlance, raping her — when she was 9"

    Mohammad and all his followers have brought world wide pain, death, and perversion into our world.
    To call this kind of belief animalistic would be elevating it way up from it's own gutter.

    It is simple enough to condemn the practice of 'child marriage' i.e. rape, but what can be done to stop it flourishing in islamic states.

    "…Would have been better if a millstone were tied around their neck and thrown into the sea."
    I think these people would have been better off not ever having been born.

    Evil is alive and flourishing. It's time is short.

    There is probably no age limit on little boys either.

    Which they usually prefer to girls, anyway.

    Their goats get top priority on the sexual preference list.

  • Dispozovdaburka

    That's why all their mullahs and mufti's have beards like goats.

    The turbans hide their ears.

    When they speak it's always "baaaaad, baaaad, baaaaaaaaad"

    I worked in child abuse for several years. What is clearly considered wrong in one culture is surprisingly right in another. However, what about the abused? What is their take on it. These men are nothing more than predators and predators continue to abuse and want more to continue their selfish lusts. There is no appeasing them and it becomes more and more perverted and evil. What is irritating is the number of Muslims coming here that have multiple wives. Against our law, but they get away with it.

      "What is clearly considered wrong in one culture is surprisingly right in another." An initial follower of Mohammad, Abu Bakr, balked when Mo told him he wanted to married to marry baby Aisha. Abu Bakr was shocked out of his turbin. Nonetheless Abu Bakr consented to have his daugher Ayesha "married" to Mo. Mo torn down the humanity of the Arab culture by sanctioning pedophilia with the force of the sword. Wikipedia (dhimmipedia) is incorrect to state, "Child marriages such as this were relatively common in Bedouin societies at the time, and remain common in some modern societies worldwide."

    This is horrific …. How do we rattle the brains of those who don't want to 'offend' any Muslims who practice this? When will we stand up and protect the brides of any age?

    Whatever the age of the baby/girl/woman getting married, the duty of her husband is to ensure she bleeds as much as possible. The more blood – the better 'deal' the family made to get the bride. The more blood – the more virgin… it's all revolting. Even adult women often require medical attention and operations to repair the damage done to brides on their wedding nights. And it's all coming to or is now featured at a mosque nearest you.

    Child brides were the practise of the day, back in the day. One of the christian kings of Jerosulem took a 6 yr. old bride. Not that there's any excuse for it now. Just another item for the checklist for the required reformation.

    • jasonz

      true but remember the avg lifespan was 30-35, you had to start yong to propegate the species. not true anymore and christians adapted. muslims do not adapy they destroy anything that threatens to remove them from the 12th century mentality. muslims in every way are inferior to the rest of society.

      – 1131–1152 Melisende
      – with Fulk 1131–1143
      – 1143-1152-1162 Baldwin III
      – 1162–1174 Amalric I
      – 1174–1185 Baldwin IV

      Jerusalem has NEVER had a “CHRISTIAN KING” and Jewish practice during those times were that girls were (in most cases) a minimum of 12…
      which was incidentally world wide norm until the mid 1950’s when the State (Yes you read correctly [S]TATE) of Califonia in a state of panic due to the explosion of teen pregnancies (READ Baby-Boom) that had occured.
      The raising of Age was for financial reasons, ya see welfare can only go as far as the resorces availible and the system was quite unprepared for this sort of population explosion… Was the age limit before that exceptable?
      I don’t believe it is for me to determine, I believe it is a matter divine providence.

      Just a closing thought, How many Generations can You go back before findin a 12 or 13 Y/O Bride in Your Family???

  • LindaRivera

    A little girl's body is not designed for the sex act. The child's body is too tiny and the innocent child clearly terrified. That fact is obvious to everyone.

    I once asked a young Muslim woman, a reporter from an Arab Muslim New York television station about child marriage in Islam. I was disappointed that she, a female, found nothing wrong with child marriage. She stated that it was a different culture.

  • Anne Havranek

    This goes on in America too among the FLDS men (fundamentalist Mormons.)

  • Gary

    Allah is not a God in the strictest sense of the term. Allah is a figment of the demented imagination of Muhammed, who wanted to start his own religion, even adopting some of the tenets of nearby Christianity. . And so Muhammed declared himself the last of the prophets, saying that there would be no more after him (a strategict attempt to eliminate opposition) and then tried to peddle his new religion to the people of the middle eastern countries. When he found out they weren't buying it, he had to build himself an army, and impress it by force, even killing all who refused to adopt his maniacal cult. And that's what we have today…a bunch of people all over the world who had it imposed on their ancestors by force, then raised in its ways, and only now and then do we find some becoming apostates and rejecting that barbaric cult, and often graviating toward and adopting the religion that expounds "love thy neighbour as thyself". . Violence and hatred perpetrate violence and hatred; love begets love. Which is the better of these for the hope of a sane world?

      spot on

    Blech!!!! And Muslims continue to wonder why many Americans have little respect for their religion.

  • tanstaafl

    In Islam, women and children are property to be sold to the highest bidder.

  • jasonz

    these people are naasty. yet another reason to wipe muslim filth frome the face of the earth. they do not deserve life or respect and only a fool would think otherwise especially when coupled with the mulims desire to control and make the world like that. Islam should BURN and muslims should die screaming. they want to die in the service of their filthy cowardly god then all the better. lets have our cake and eat it too. save the planet and martyr muslims

    Arabs are talked about in many different places in the Bible. The Bible says they are the ENEMY of God (Jesus Christ)–called "Arbeh" in the original Hebrew texts. Enter pedophilia here. There is no way acts of pedophilia should come as a surprise to anyone that understands what the Arabs are about. Arabs define evil. Pedophilia is just part of that. Their "Religion of Peace" scam has fooled many people, yes. Especially in the United States, where Arabs have had the help of the liberals and the "government-media complex" to pull off their guise that they are peaceful and loving.

  • MaoYing

    Of course, the United States recognizes Arabs as a minority (since they are non-whites), too–and this fact enables them to do anything and everything they want without reservation–while government and society (in the United States) must support them 100%, simply because they are a minority. Anything less would offend the Arabs. The United States cannot handle minorities becoming offended. But, in reality, the Arabs are as evil as evil can get. Especially today, as the Arabs have joined sides with the Communists–what we call the Islamofascists of today. And we are talking lots of Arabs here. Lots and lots of them. Which means we are talking lots and lots of Islamofascists that are bopping around the world today. Which means Islam is not a religion by any means. Rather, Islam is a political movement. And a dangerous one at that. Pedophilia is just part of that dangerous political movement. Just understand, the Arabs are the ENEMY of God. Therefore, God will handle THEM. We can be happy.

  • myomy

    think about this… our government is trying to put Warren Jeffs in jail for life because he married a teen aged girl and promoted that plural lifestyle based on his religious belief. The FBI put him on their 10 most wanted criminals until he was captured. On the other hand, they can't invite these scumbag muslims into our country fast enough. They act like we're lucky to get these muslims when they're twice as bad as Jeffs… hmmmmm

    • tanstaafl

      Good point.

  • Terri

    “Just understand, the Arabs are the ENEMY of God. Therefore, God will handle THEM. ”

    Your invisible friend is bigger than their invisible friend? I liked the rest of your post, but let’s not bring yet more voodoo into this, that’s for the Arabs if they want it.

    How do they expect to function long term as a society if half their population has been repeatedly, regularly raped since childhood? If everyone grows up with a whacked out, traumatized mom and a violent perv for a dad, that’s going to be one hideous society. Or maybe that explains how they got to be the way they are now.

  • aspacia

    During the Dark Ages and Renaissance many girls married young and few lived to old age. during the Dark Ages most only lived until 25, hence young brides of 12 or younger married and gave birth.

    However, humans have a much longer life span, and girls should not be sold to the highest bidder regardless of faith or custom. Child marriages and births often destroy a girls body, and the child often arrives stillborn or deformed.

    When will the Middle-Eastern clerics step out of their Dark Age shroud? Hopefully, they will soon be forced to.

  • Moe

    I would like you not to use the pictures of Palestinians instead of saudi people,because that is just not right (the pic is taken from a wedding, and those are the flower girls with their dads, brothers, and cousins). remember that there are a lot of clerics who issue fatwa, and most of them against it, and so is the majority of the Muslims. so please remove that picture of the people who got nothing to do with it.

  • David, Thailand

    Islam produces mindless savages. From the cradle to the grave Muslims are conditioned not to think or question, but to unconditionally embrace the barbarity of Sharia and the Koran.

    This is how Islam was born, how it spread, and how it now threatens the civilised world.

  • Ibraheem

    Priests and Church Orders have been alleged to have
    committed child sex abuse, infact abusing children as
    young as 3 yrs old. Cases include oral and anal
    penetration. The churches instead of bringing forward
    the perpetrators would cover them up by trasfering
    them to avoid prosecution, if church leaders are capable of
    such acts – I wonder what debasing acts ordinary
    followers indulge in. I humbly suppose you try and
    solve this problem of yours rather than popnosing
    into affairs of other religion, for which you have
    absolutely no idea about.

  • Jiya Mehnar

    14-15 year old are physically capable of having sex… Not 6-7 years old… Why do islamists have a problem with consensual sex but has no problem with a man keeping hundred wives. Accept that Islam is a stupid religion that oppresses women… Products terrorists and does no good. U better leave it and join some other religion.
