Marriage Of Minors In Our Fatwas?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

By the way, arranged marriages are makruh anyway, there's a chapter on this in Wasail ush Shia about the karaha of arranging marriages for minors (to be consummated at adulthood of course).

Muhammad b. Ya`qub from Muhammad b. Isma`il from al-Fadl b. Shadhan and from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father all from Ibn Abi `Umayr from Hisham b. al-Hakam from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام or Abu ‘l-Hasan عليهما السلام. He said: It was said to him: We marry our kids while they are minors. So he said: When they are married while they are minors, hardly ever will they be in harmony (with one another). Edited by Nima

Again, no matter how many laws are put out there. If people are disgusting and sinful beings who happen to call themselves Muslims, it wont stop them from doing the haram.

I agree, thats why if people care about the welfare of children they should have an age of consent high enough so that the natural variation in biological development doesnt lead to situations of harm in cases where people arent particularly bothered by the fact their daughters body isnt mature enough to safely deal with sexual activity and child bearing. Its shocking to me that nations like Iran still allow a minimal age limit of 9. If you'd read account of what sexual activity and child bearing can do to someone that young a person with an ounce of compassion would not support these low ages of consent. To support such abuse and needless suffering is not Islamic as far as im concerned.

But an age restriction comes with its own problems at times. For example, I was attracted to a few of my teachers when I was younger. If I had had a consensual relationship with one of the them, it would have been penalised by the state. How is that fair?

Again, the point is, Islamically, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. There are no cons. It is when you are outside of Islam that this becomes an issue. Like I mentioned before, do we ban marriages all together because there are sickos out there? There are situations where this ruling is validated and in fact reasonable. Looking at todays day and age, children's sexual urges are so high its unbelievable. With all these sources of media and interaction, there is no way they would not know about such things as masturbation, porn, boyfriend/girlfriend. Once this becomes an issue, hell has risen. Now what is your solution for anyone, let alone children with such issues? Of course marriage! We western raised kids know very quite well, at what age these relationship games come around. Heck, even younger children are seen with such sexual behavior. This destroys the society. They will fall from haram into halal, if marriage becomes an option. The pros out way the cons by far. As I keep mentioning and mentioning, there are secondary laws that are attached that keep the safety of the child at hand.

Who said anyone is supporting such behavior? If anything you must challenge God, because by your reasoning "He is supporting abuse", that is a possibility through marriage. So lets all bash God for allowing marriages. No, you cannot imply a religion or someone is supporting unislamic behavior because people are ignorant. It is absurd. The fault here is the familys who ignorantly not understand a thing and do it for unlslamic reasons in the first place. Have any of you all read on the hundreds of books on Islamic ethics/ marriage ethics? What is this for if it is not for preventing mishaps?
