    Default Muslim marriage age up 16 to 18

    The Straits Times -
    THE minimum marriage age at which Muslims can marry has been raised to 18, in line with that for other Singaporeans.

    The change from age 16, which has been floated in the community for some years now, marks its resolve to nip in the bud the problem of broken homes.

    Official figures show that Malay-Muslims make up a disproportionate number of such dysfunctional families, many of whom are couples who married young and divorced soon after.

    Bad news for short gunners. Naïve no more.

    Should be increased to 21 if looking at their overall problems.

    I can never understand the Muslim community take on minimum age to marriage. A sixteen years old teenager, just complete Secondary 4, without any means to make a living or barely surviving and 1 or 2 kids in tow, at age 18?.

    Children looking after children?.

    The sixteen years old are meant for the dirty old men disguised as Ulamas

    The legitimacy of “marrying” pre-pubescent girls who have not yet had their “monthly courses” is established both in the Qur’an and in the "perfect example" set by Muhammad for his Muslim followers.

    The Qur'an:


    Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same) (65:4)
    The rule concerns divorce, which obviously implies marriage. Muhammad wanted believing men to observe a three month waiting period before evicting their wives, to make sure that they weren’t pregnant.

    Muhammad elsewhere encouraged his men to marry “young girls” for sexual pleasure:


    "Allah's Apostle said to me, "Have you got married O Jabir?" I replied, "Yes." He asked "What, a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "Not a virgin but a matron." He said, "Why did you not marry a young girl who would have fondled with you?" (Bukhari 59:382)

    Lest there be any doubt by what he meant by “young,” Muhammad set the example by marrying and having sex with Aisha when she was only 9-years-old:
    'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: “Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine.” (Sahih Muslim 3309) This is confirmed in many other hadith as well.

    According to the most reliable traditions, Aisha brought her dolls to Muhammad’s house for play (Muslim 3341) and he would fondle the little girl in the tub while taking baths with her (Bukhari 6:298). Aisha was just a teenager by the time Muhammad died, but she had already spent over half her life in marriage to him
    Even worse for Muslims is that part of the Qur’an was actually “revealed” while Muhammad was in bed with this little girl:


    [Muhammad said] "…the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha." (Bukhari 47:755)

    So, no... Muhammad did not condemn pedophilia.

    Not even close.
