The Penalty of Islamic Marriages

Muhammad is said to have married Aisha when she was SIX years old, and consummated the marriage sexually at her age of NINE. Islam also teaches that Muhammad was the “Perfect Example”, and was to be followed in all his acts and actions, as an example to humanity henceforth. Following is the tragic story of one (of many) consequences.

The Clarion Project has the story.

Child Bride Dies in Yemen From Injuries on Wedding Night 

 

Activists are calling for the groom, who is believed to be around 40 years old, and the girl’s family, to be arrested so they can face justice.

An eight-year-old child bride has died in Yemen of internal bleeding sustained during her wedding night after being forced to marry a man five times her age, human rights activists have said.

The girl, identified only as Rawan, died in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia.

Activists are now calling for the groom, who is believed to be around 40 years old, and the girl’s family, to be arrested so they can face justice in the courts. They say arrests would help put a stop to the practice of marrying very young girls to older men, a common practice in the region.

The practice of marrying young girls is widespread in Yemen and has attracted the attention of international rights groups seeking to pressure the government to outlaw child marriages.

More than a quarter of Yemen’s females marry before the age of 15, according to a report issued by Human Rights Watch. Yemen passed a law in 2009 which sets the minimum age for marriage at 17 years, however, it was repealed after conservative lawmakers complained that it went against Islamic teachings.

Yemen had previously set the minimum age for marriage at 15 years ago, but parliament annulled that law in the 1990s, saying parents should decide when a daughter marries.

Yemen’s gripping poverty plays a role in hindering efforts to stamp out the practice, as poor families find themselves unable to say no to “bride-prices” for their daughter which can be hundreds of dollars.

Tribal customs also play a role, including the belief that a young bride can be shaped into an obedient wife, bear more children and be kept away from temptation.

In September 2010, a 12-year-old Yemeni child-bride died after struggling for three days in labor to give birth, a local human rights organization said.

Bloggers were ripe with criticism for this practice. Commenting on this particular case, one blogger named “Angry Man” posted on his site, “The man is an animal who deserves to be punished severely for his crime. All those who supported such a crime should also be punished,” he added.

Another blogger, called Omar, wrote: “Rawan’s family members are not humans. They do not deserve to have children.”

Another blogger, called “Sad” wrote, “Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage. It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom.”

Child marriages are the norm in most of the Muslim world, primarily in the Middle East. Pakistan and Afghanistan also practice this rite. Yet, for an ideology where life is of no value, and death itself is honored as a state to be achieved, and “72 virgins” are promised for martyred fighters, what else is to be expected?

This is an ideology where life itself is worthless, women are no better than cattle of the field, and are considered to have little or no brainpower. The female is little more than breeding stock for cannon fodder.

I Grieve for the innocents, raised and tutored in this ideology. But after the age of about Four, the child is immune to any form of sensibility. The brainwashing has taken root, and the tendrils run deep.

    I am half sick to my stomach, Grouchy. While I detest reading this kind of thing, I do know how important It is to face reality in the eye. Thanx for posting this.

    Communist pine cone ought to be … never mind. Apologize for the potential use of some very nasty language, but won’t ever apologize for the righteous anger that I have over these abominations.

    My fellow Citizens … meet your fate. Good luck to you all unless you wake up!

    Good but disgusting stuff, Grouchy. Aside from their barbaric customs and laws that allow this, they don’t have the sense to realize at that young age, a girl’s body has not grown and developed yet. She’s not physically ready for sexual activity, so there are probably a lot more instances of this that we don’t hear about. Sad, so very very sad.

    Mrs. AL is right too, if we don’t wake up, this will be coming to our neighborhoods soon, because they’re spreading like a plague of locusts.

    • Sadly, Kathy, this is already in many neighborhoods in the “civilized world”. Many national governments are allowing this under the auspices of “Religious Tolerance”. And the children are paying the price. Horribly.

    What a religion! They celebrate pedophilia. Homosexual activities are out unless it is with a young boy. Then that, too, is okay. What Dubya called a peaceful religion is interested in killing everyone who does not believe.

    • And even homosexual activities are permitted, as the practice will enlarge the anal opening to accept explosive devices. This is strictly an ideology of convenience to achieve the stated, and unstated, agendas of islam.
      There are fatwas on this subject, Buck. It is no wonder why so many of the intelligent among the muslims are leaving the ideology. Both openly, as well as covertly and intellectually. Covertly, as the penalty for apostasy is death, at the hands of any hard-line islamist adherent.

    Talk about exploding the pisstivity meter. Now y’all who might have been wondering why, when I refer to followers of the false pedophile prophet, where that came from, it is shit like THIS. Where the HELL is the NOW gang ? Hitlary Klintoon? Katie Couric ? Lady Gag-Gag ? The plasticized Cher? Goddamned hypocrites. Moochelle Obama ? Christ, THIS little girl COULD have been hers. You know, “if I had a daughter,she’d look like “Khartarin”? Sickening, but I don’t know which part of it is worse, the stuck-in-the-7th-century muzzie scum, OR the hypocritical SILENCE of the left.

  5. The saddest part, Clyde, is that in a country run and ruled by Shari’ah Law, she will not be avenged, nor the family prosecuted. NOR the husband, either. The marriage was transacted in accordance with islamic law.
    I sadly doubt, given the current ideological climate in Britain, if she would be avenged even there. The climate of muslim is too strong there now, and there are places in London the Bobbys and the LEO’s will not go.
    As for Yemen, it is a Muslim Country, and the Wahhabi and the Salafi are strong there.

    • Clyde says:

      So, GF, the damnable U-frigging-N, the “supposed” protector of children, won’t do ANYTHING either? Shit, imagine my stunned surprise. Oh, wait, I forgot. East Timor. Nevermind.

    Good post Grouchy, albeit a sad story. That is one screwed up religion.

  7. Leigh says:

    The Islam “religion” is designed by men, for men. It gives them a blessing to pursue whatever carnal pleasures they wish to indulge in, under the name of the almighty allah. This had been their way for centuries and trying to change this will be nearly impossible. The degradation of women is disgusting. There are good Muslims just as there are bad ones. But the vile practices are pushing the good to the background. But a “religion” based on the life of a pedophile, a deviant, one that wishes death on all who don’t call allah their god needs to be eradicated.

  8. Leigh, Thank you for your insightful comment. And Welcome to Nox & Friends. I’m glad you found us.
    One of my reasons for posting this article is to bring to the forefront of attention the difficult role that women of islam have. As you noted, the degradation is indeed, disgusting. The hell they are forced to endure is beyond description. But the CHANGES coming to islam will be at the demands of the women. They are becoming excessively wearied of being the sources of cannon fodder and martyrs seeking their 72 virgins.

    There are indications that the basis of islam is changing. Right now, they are barely discernible, but they are there. They won’t be shouted from the roof-tops, but then, in the Time of Christ, His teachings weren’t either. Islam will be undergoing the same kind of transition, in the not too distant future. The undergrowth is already smouldering.

    Welcome again, to Hardnox & Friends. Please make yourself to home.

    I pity those who are getting into Islam; their 72 Virgins will be the ones they killed in Allah’s name, ready to judge them in God’s court.

  10. Buck says:

    “Islam is a peaceful religion.” “Islam is one of the great religions.”
    Bush was either a liar or a fool or both.
    For whatever the reason he helped set back American understanding of a sworn enemy.

    • Buck, you’re right,,, I’d more call him an ignorant dhimmi,,, But at that point in time, few of the populace knew of the danger of islam, as it had not severely affected our shores prior to 9/11. The SADDEST point is the appeasement attitude of the current national leadership, even with the knowledge and understanding of what islam is, and its stated agenda. They are hiding nothing, and our leadership is not comprehending what they’re saying. Because of that, the American populace as a whole will pay the exorbitant price for leadership’s failures.

  11. pepperhawk says:

    I don’t consider Islam a religion of peace but a cult no better than some of the broken off cults of Mormonism. Selling and buying of little girls is an affront to all human rights and a horrible situation for child brides who aren’t even old enough to bear children without many falling into the consequences of this child.

    I do take one exception to the story and that is comparing these people to animals. Animals don’t do this, only humans are capable of such cruelty and horrifying practices.

    Good article Grouchy. Once again you are pointing out the side of Islam that is so barbaric that almost anyone from outside these cults see it as such basic cruelty and barbaric behavior. It makes one sick to one’s stomach.
