Child Marriage In Islam

Recommended Posts

Assala Mu Alaikum Oa Rahmatullah,


I would like to share a global issue named “child marriage”. According to UNCRC (United Nations convention on the rights of the child) it is prohibited to give our children’s marriage under 18 years of age. But regarding the issue what is the position of Islam? Child marriage is a really a pathetic matter to a country, especially for third world. But are there any bindings to arrange a child marriage in Islamic philosophy...?

Alaykoum assalam wa rahmatou Allah wa barakatouh sister Aysha,

 

According to my knowledge. Child marriage depends on the situation and Islam can allow it and even encourage it in some case: It can preserve the girl...

 

You can see for instance these links:

http://www.onislam.net/english/ask-the-scholar/family/marriage/451654-how-Islam-views-early-marriages.html

 

Furthermore, it is clear that the western union must not be our model (the number of crimes, rapes... against children is so high).

 

Thank You sister for this subject.

Wa alaikum assalam

Islam is more superior than any man-made rules or values. The united nations and western values support same-sex marriage among other weird stuff, so you don't have to put much weight on what they think is right, because its our Lord Al-Mighty, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and all that in between, who knows best how we work and what's best for us humans. He could have created us so that our fertility system is not complete until the age of 18. But he didn't. Too bad for the UN.

 


In 2012, a total of 305,388 babies were born to teen girls aged 15 and 19 years in the US, not to mention those who use contraceptives to avoid pregnancy.

16% of teens have had sex by age 15, compared with one-third of those aged 16, nearly half (48%) of those aged 17, 61% of 18-year-olds and 71% of 19-year-olds.[1

Are those the values you're comparing to the Islamic values?

In many eastern countries, if a teen girl made a relation with a man without marriage, she gets killed. If they were allowed to get married, the wrong doing would have been avoided, as well as brutal honor killings.

Its all the same, west or east, desire is at its peak at that active age This is how we were designed. Its best both for the community and the individuals to set UN rules aside, and do as our maker, Lord ALMighty tells.

If you look at the medical facts, you'll notice that we are at our highest degree of desire and energy, at all levels, during our teens. Its much easier to commit a sin at that age, compared to older age groups. Marriage is the natural binding that Our Lord designed for us to release our desires in a healthy and socially-correct manner. If you go against those simple rules, you suffer, and the community suffer. Its all crystal clear.

I am really very grateful for the clearance you have mentioned regarding the issue. While I was reading the reply suddenly I moved to a online newspaper and
I shocked to see a news. "In Kosovo 7 school going teens girls were pregnant after going to a study tour". I was really very surprised to read the whole article...! How ashamed the situation is...!!! Allah (SWT) save all of us...! :cry:

The link to that news story is here:

http://inserbia.info/today/2014/12/bih-seven-primary-school-students-pregnant-after-five-day-excursion/

 

If 7 out of 28 primary school girls, all aged13-15 years old, got pregnant, I can imagine how many of them committed the sin during that 5-day school trip.

Assalamualaikum Rahamatullahi Wabarakathahu

I really wonder even after half a decade  this question remains hot on net .But this question drives Muslim to run for all lengths and breadths to find answers as it did to me half  a decade ago when I was straving for Islamic knowledge.

 

This is a insignificant question because surveys and indices shows a different stories.

 

Pl note that the age of marriage in all Muslims countries ranges from  15 years to 20 years (pl apply filters to find age of marraige in muslim countries).Secondly, the survey clearly shows that child abuse is on rampant in only non Muslim countries .I really wonder why this question always pointed towards muslims!

 

However ,there is  a provision of early marriage in Islam but even there is a provision of spitting in salah

Prayers (Salat) 

Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 8 :: Hadith 408

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Prophet said, "If anyone of you stands for prayer, he should not spit in front of him because in prayer he is speaking in private to Allah and he should not spit on his right as there is an angel, but he can spit either on his left or under his left foot and bury it (i.e. expectoration)."

 

there are lots of hadiths for this action

had you ever seen muslims doing these even after having the provison to spit

 

likewise , marriage at early age is seldom among muslims

 

finally , As a peice of advice to the author of this thread

Never try to gain the Islamic  knowledge on net .Always sought professionals to gain knowledge in a systamic way .pl try IOU

 

Regards

The fatwa on this link  in which Dr. Hatem Al-Hajj  says verse 65.4 is talking about primary amenorrhea was my discovery in 2009

i could not find that post on gawaher .perhaps brother DOT maight  know about this

 

Futher , the article in the follwing link was just the summary of my findings

 

http://www.quranicpath.com/misconceptions/underage_marriage.html

 

I don't know weather to feel happy or sad

 

on the one hand , i feel happy because atelast there few people who agree with me and i feel sad because ,again , the fruit of my hardwork was taken away by some one

 

Any way ,there is one mighty reckoner who keeps account of all deeds of every body

i hope he will pay the best in akhira

 

Regards

      People across the globe believe that shia and sunni are the two different sects. Both of the sects have different religious beliefs, therefore it has been understood by people that they cannot come under the same umbrella ‘Islam’. Many people have this faith that due to the entirely different conduct of life, shia and sunni cannot marry with each other. However, before making such bold claims, complete research is very important to know the reality. So, before marrying with a shia man or woman, one must know that there are two types of shias:
      One of the types of shia holds disbeliefs (kufr), that the Quran has been altered, Hazrat Ali (R.A) is worthy to worship and here Shirk (to worship someone other than Allah) occurs, the angel Jibril made an error in descending the revelation on the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) in place of Hazrat Ali (R.A), accusations on Hazrat Aisha (R.A) of committing adultery or denying the Companionship Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A).
      However, the another type of shias are those who do not hold beliefs that constitute Kufr, such as believing that Hazrat Ali (R.A) was the rightful first Caliph after the demise of the Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H), belief in the twelve Imams, and all those beliefs which the first type of shias put faith in. 
      A true Muslim has asked by Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) that before marrying, Muslim must need to check the religious beliefs, and religious practices in his/her partner. There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari that Messenger of Allah has said:
      "A woman is married for four reasons, her wealth, lineage, status and Deen. Choose the one who is religious." (Sahih Bukhari)
      Even then we being humans do not know that what faiths are hidden in the chest of people and what they are pretending, indeed! Allah knows the truth only. And so, we should avoid those things where we find doubts or dissatisfaction. If we go for things which are doubtful then we are tangling ourselves deliberately in the chaos.

      I just now read the story of this young man and the jinn that ruined his marriage 
      for some reasons I can not see it again after I registered
      the answer to your problem is one way and one way only 
      jinn must be captured and offered to be a Muslim or die 
      reading Quran helps for sure but is not enough 
      if you need further help let me know

      I was wondering......you see, I am 19, and when I graduate college I intend on getting married. If I married a Jewish or Christian woman would she go to hell for disbelief if she does not convert? if she would, what is the purpose of getting married? also, according to yasir qadhi, ibn abbas said interfaith marriage is only for within an Islamic country, due to the possibility of divorce and/or children turning away from Islam. What is the scholarly view? (I was born in and live in the West)

      Assalamu’Alaikum,
       
      I am happy to announce that  Half Our Deen Offline  is finally coming to the UK!  Baba Ali will be in UK  and will be hosting an  Exclusive Singles Event on  Sunday 8th November 2015  in LONDON!   The event will take place at a private location that will only be revealed to the confirmed paid attendees. You know how Baba Ali values your privacy. 
        Are you worried about the event being boring, scary, a waste of time, etc? Let Ali give you a sneak peek inside. Click on this image ---------------->   and watch Ali's video on what makes Half Our Deen Offline so special.  HOD Online also has had over 800 members find their other half on their website  www.halfourdeen.com ! Check out their  testimonials  there (and you will find our story too :D). Need more information on our events? Check out the information below:   
             Only 80 seats available so reserve your spot TODAY! 
       
      What exactly is HOD Offline? 
      Half Our Deen Offline is an exclusive event and the only way to get a seat is by invitation. Once an interested person completes their registration for Half Our Deen Offline, their answers will be reviewed. If approved, they will receive an invitation and instructions to complete their payment to reserve their seat at the event. Approval is based solely on the responses we receive to the survey. The goal is to only invite those who have a real chance at finding a match at the event. For example, if you are looking to marry someone between the ages of 35-40 and the majority of those who fill the survey are under 35 attending would be a waste of your time and money. In order to keep the event organized and balanced, seating is limited and based on a first-come basis.
       
      How does one Register for the event?  Fill out the survey ( www.hodoffline.com/register )  to sign-up for the event. All registrants will go through a filtration process to determine the likelihood of finding a compatible match at the event.  Once HOD determines the compatibility ratios for all registrants, they split them into groups based on who they are likely to find compatible . They then send out invites to those who made it to the final list of brothers and sisters who they believe will have a high chance of finding a match at this particular event. If the invited do not pay within the time specified to reserve their seat, the next most compatible registrant is sent the invite. Register early to ensure you get in.
      What happens at the Event? 
      Instead of just playing musical chairs like other events, Half Our Deen Offline takes a revolutionary approach at Muslim Matchmaking by engaging people in fun and interesting activities. You will experience an innovative and intelligent way of interacting with others in a natural environment. The creative activities make for a comfortable atmosphere where you can be yourself and learn how others interact with you in a relaxed setting. HOD makes it simple, less stressful and most of all FUN! The HOD Offline staff keep you entertained and are readily available to answer any questions you may have. 
       
      Spots are limited so make sure to grab yours before they are gone.
