11-Year-Old Child Bride Debates Muslim Cleric Who Supports Child Rape

muslim feminism3

It’s not a direct debate. No matter how poised Nada Al-Ahdal may be at 11 and her video, which went viral, and interview certainly show that she is, that kind of debate isn’t going to happen. But the back and forth format is effective enough.

We’ve seen debates between Muslim clerics and women’s rights advocates. But this is far more devastating. It doesn’t help that the cleric is sweating like a pig and couldn’t be creepier if he had come from central casting, especially once he begins talking about marrying his own daughter off when she reaches puberty.

Interviewer: “How old were you when they married you off?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “Ten years old.”

Interviewer: “How old was the man who married you?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “26 years old.”

Interviewer: “When they told you they wanted to marry you off, what did you know about marriage?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “They told me it was a game, but it isn’t. It turns you into a servant, and places a burden that is greater than you can bear on your shoulders.”

Interviewer: “[Your parents] told you that marriage was a game?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “Yes.”

Interviewer: “Do you know how much the bridegroom paid [your parents]?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “Yes.”

Interviewer: “How much?”

Nada Al-Ahdal: “2,000 dollars.”

And then we get to the genuinely creepy stuff as the cleric comes on.

Egyptian cleric Sheikh Abu Yahya: “There is a difference between contractual marriage and consummated marriage. A contractual marriage can take place from day one. From the moment the baby girl is born, takes her first breaths, and is given a name, her guardian, who is her father only – and there is consensus about this in the Muslim world – is allowed to marry her off. This is an accepted custom, and perhaps even my grandparents and your grandparents married this way. The boy is kept for the girl, and vice versa.

“This marriage – a contractual marriage or engagement – is permitted [at this age]. As for consummation of the marriage – it is not permitted until the woman is ready to bear it. A guardian who acts otherwise is harming the girl under his charge.”

Interviewer: “At what age is she ready for him?”

Sheikh Abu Yahya: “This varies from girl to girl. One girl may be ready at the age of nine, and another may not be ready even at 25.”

Interviewer: “If you had a girl who reached puberty at nine years of age…”

Sheikh Abu Yahya: “I would marry her for sure. If she has reached puberty…”

Interviewer: “You would marry her off?”

Sheikh Abu Yahya: “If you say she has reached puberty, that’s it.”

    “Blessed is the man who gives his daughter in marriage before her first blood”, pontificated the perverted Iranian mullah (circa 1981). Self immolation is the resort of girls given to crusty old men for business favors in Herat, Afghanistan and Karachi, Pakistan. Not only perversions, but real evil flows from the hearts of many of ‘those people’. Count on reprobates like Karen Armstrong or Anderson Cooper to rise to the defense of any Muslim tradition.

      You’re right, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t judge dirty filthy pedos who want to marry babies or have sex with girls when they are old enough to bleed. I have no right to judge. Yeah, right.
      But you’ve made it clear who you are, and what a disgusting scumbag you are. Your post proves that.
      White Christian bigots? Do you even know what the word bigot means, you filthy, cowardly little low life?

      The fact that you even dare to come on here and try to defend Muslim pedo scumbags shows just what a slimy little slug you are.

      This country founded on Christian principles became the greatest nation on this planet, became the haven of many regardless of heir belief’s, welcomed and loved as well. Now perverted by those that would return this nation to the third world cultures that most fled from to have freedom from oppression, and freedom to believe as they want. May these people find what they want someplace else but not here. Perhaps open and free borders are not wise after all. I am sure the American Indians would vote to close the borders if they could have now that see what how that has worked out for them.

      But we DO understand those backward cultures. We’ve been there ourselves. Women had few, if any, rights at one time. Children were used – exploited – in mills and mines. Child brothels were not unknown in our past.
      But WE have moved on, and offered other cultures every assistance in doing likewise. In the case of Islam they resist doing so because it suits them to continue in their perverse ways.

    Some doctor listed 15 possible problems with adolescent pregnancy. I do not know if I saved the list or where to find it.

    One problem was that even if the mother suffered no ill effects, the baby had a higher tendency to have a fatty liver.

    Here is some stuff from wiki.

    “The worldwide incidence of premature birth and low birth weight is higher among adolescent mothers. …

    Risks for medical complications are greater for girls aged under 15, as an underdeveloped pelvis can lead to difficulties in childbirth. Obstructed labour is normally dealt with by Caesarean section …”


    Why not ask Sheikh Abu Yahya questions about what ” it is not permitted until the woman is ready to bear it” means.

    I cannot think that a medical layman, which the sheikh is could judge that. the statistics certainly does not prove his thesis.

    • Couper

      I agree. I posted this comment earlier. “Just because the plumbing is in, doesn’t mean the house is ready for occupancy.”

  • Veracious_one

    and there is consensus about this in the Muslim world – is allowed to marry her off…..

    or more precisely ….sell her…

    • Arf

      You got that right!! A daughter’s value is measured in how much she can be sold for.

    • Naser

      There is no such consensus. Muslim clerics vary in their views with regards to this issue.

    “Sheikh Abu Yahya: “If you say she has reached puberty, that’s it.” Stupid man. All I will say to this is: JUST BECAUSE THE PLUMBING IS IN, DOESN’T MEAN THE HOUSE IS READY FOR OCCUPANCY.

    • Drakken

      Oh come on now ! You know those feminazis only have an ax to grind against us white males that oppress them. To protest against this child rape and slavery would hurt the poor precious feelings of those 3rd world savages and as a leftist, they just can’t have that can they? Besides, to the leftist, it’s all our fault that the savages do this.

    • defcon 4

      I’ll bet her life is already in danger, because she dared criticise (however indirectly) the dogma of islam and assert she had rights above and beyond being a chattel slave to a male muslime.

    • m4253y

      no, the intent is to destroy her spirit as that is the objective of their religion…females into subjugated servitude…no individualism for females…burqa, head scarf, etc? need i say more.

      Wow. Something this terrible and you turn into a right vs. left issue. Speaking on behalf of the left you are very uneducated and must get your information from the Fox Entertainment Network. They no longer legally call themselves the “Fox News Network.” We’re all Americans, maybe someone never told this to you but it means there are lot of opinions, we vote, and we don’t always get what we want, it’s called democracy.

        How are you liking that obamacare right now? Has your insurance been dropped? Have you tried to enroll on the aca site only to find it’s next to impossible and that your premium, deductibles and co-pays are higher than what you had?

    we are taken to task as islamophobes because we are not smart enough to understand that there is nothing wrong with pedophilia?

    who are we to impede the cannibalization of their youth?

    Deuteronomy 22:28-29 – If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

    Exodus 21:7-11 – When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment

  • Jarrod East

    Deuteronomy 22:23-24 – If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

    Numbers 31:13-18 – But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded. “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD’s people. Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

    Deuteronomy 21:10-14 – When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion.

    Most girls don’t reach puberty at nine, but that is the most important physical distinction between a sexual child and a sexual adult. If still can mean she doesn’t know anything about her own body, but we allow adult women who have no sex education and never learned how to have an orgasm or in some rare cases don’t even know how to have sex. This is a mute point to me personally because I like ‘em 43 years old. What I think is the worst thing about this is how all women there are treated and kept uneducated. also that some men would marry daughters off to consummate a marriage before 1st menstruation is just absolutely terrible and just plain wrong

  • SatiricalQuark

    Just because she has went through puberty and is physically developed, and able to reproduce, doesn’t mean she’s mentally developed. Freedom is a human right, no matter what religious custom says otherwise. No child should be the prisoner of a brainwashed pedophile, and every child should have the chance to develop both physically and mentally in the safest environment.

    Under islam, she doesn’t even need to have reached puberty. Mohammed made it clear that you could marry and divorce a girl before her first period.

    Brave little girl. Hope she is well protected and she can continue her studies. With her courage she will be a success. As for that nimcumpoop that claims marriage is allowed in the US at 14 that is maybe in very few states such as Kentucky, Tennesee and maybe Alabama the rest do not allow marriage without parental consent until 18. At 18 that would be a fully grown women. Before then it is considered Statutory Rape!
