The Muslim Case for Underage Sex

The second fatwa listed on this mainstream Islamic site page gives permission for men to marry off their underage daughters without their permission. Please go to Islam Q&A to read ...

Marrying a young girl before she reaches the age of adolescence is permitted in sharee’ah; indeed it was narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this point.
(a) Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months; and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise”
[al-Talaaq 65:4]
In this verse we see that Allaah has made the ‘iddah in the case of divorce of a girl who does not have periods – because she is young and has not yet reached puberty – three months. This clearly indicates that Allaah has made this a valid marriage.
(b) It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her when she was six years old, he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine and she stayed with him for nine years.
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4840; Muslim, 1422)
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married ‘Aa’ishah when she was six years old and consummated the marriage when she was nine.”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim; Muslim says ‘seven years’)
The fact that it is permissible to marry a young girl does not mean that it is permissible to have intercourse with her; rather that should not be done until she is able for it. For that reason the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) delayed the consummation of his marriage to ‘Aa’ishah. Al-Nawawi said: With regard to the wedding-party of a young married girl at the time of consummating the marriage, if the husband and the guardian of the girl agree upon something that will not cause harm to the young girl, then that may be done. If they disagree, then Ahmad and Abu ‘Ubayd say that one a girl reaches the age of nine then the marriage may be consummated even without her consent, but that does not apply in the case of who is younger. Maalik, al-Shaafa’i and Abu Haneefah said: the marriage may be consummated when the girl is able for intercourse, which varies from one girl to another, so no age limit can be set. This is the correct view. There is nothing in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah to set an age limit, or to forbid that in the case of a girl who is able for it before the age of nine, or to allow it in the case of a girl who is not able for it and has reached the age of nine. Al-Dawoodi said: ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) was reached physical maturity (at the time when her marriage was consummated).
Sharh Muslim, 9/206
It is preferable for a guardian not to marry off his daughter when she is still young unless there is a valid reason for that.
Al-Nawawi said:
It should be noted that al-Shaafa’i and his companions said: It is preferable for fathers and grandfathers not to marry off a virgin until she reaches the age of puberty and they ask her permission, lest she end up in a marriage that she dislikes. What they said does not go against the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah, because what they meant is that they should not marry her off before she reaches puberty if there is no obvious interest to be served that they fear will be missed out on if they delay it, as in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah. In that case it is preferable to go ahead with the marriage because the father is enjoined to take care of his child’s interests and not to let a good opportunity slip away.
And Allaah knows best.

    Try your best to make confusion among muslims by false intepretations of the Quran. But u won't succeed.

    I curse you all and pray to Allah Almighty to punish you in the most severe way on the judgement day.

    Did you think you would all escape ? Nay. u won't. You will die one day.

    We will see how much you would be able to write blogs like this.

    Anonymous, Dhivehi Resistance isn't making false intepretations of the Quran. He is simply quoting from a respected Islamic authority, Shaykh Muhammad al-Munajjid.

    Last anonymous, It doesn't take the owner of this blog or anyone else to prove that Muslims are intolerant terrorists. They do it very well themselves.

    Ibrahim Maumoon asks for Dhivehi Resistance's address and photo so that he could come and murder him. Ibrahim Maumoon offers us proof that Muslims are murderers.

    The human brain is not fully formed until the very late teens (in most males the early twenties). It is not possible for a child to make a fully informed decision about marriage when they are younger than that.
    It is easy to corrupt a mind if they are trained in dogma before they can make their own decision about the truth.
    All religions seem to seek to impose the beliefs of elders on the very young and vulnerable, under the disguise of education. When one considers this, pedofilia seems to be only the physical side of the problem. I wonder which is worse.

    just one word for the responsible of that web site ....
    god curse you
    god curse you
    god curse you

    another thing more to all who agree with the writer "God Curse him...amin"

    Remember the free world to be adopted by the Catholic Vatican that the apocryphal books states that the age at the time of the Virgin Mary carrying Christ was twelve years old, and age of Yousef Al Najjar her fiance at the time ninety years old!!!!!!

    paedophilia in islam is rife,in the west paedophiles are criminals and punished,in islam it's not only allowed but encouraged, mohammed was a pervert and these men follow in his filthy footsteps.

    Any comment given should be avoided because interpretations given here are not correct and assumed as per own thought.
    Quran is very clear if understood correctly with its wisdom in instructions. Instead of wrong perceptions dont get confused.
