Islamic Fatwa That Encourages Children Marrying Old Men

Here is  an Islamic fatwa (Muslim ruling by clerics) basically saying paedophilia and child brides are ok in Islam and trying to justify a child marrying a man 30 years older because the Paedo Prophet Muhammed married a young child to satisfy his own warped deviant sexual urges   

The Suitable Age For Marriage


What is the suitable age for marriage for men and women, because some young women do not accept marriage from those who are older than them? Likewise, some men do not marry women who are older than them. We request a response and may Allaah reward you with goodness.


I advise young women not to refuse marriage from a man due to his age, such as being ten, twenty or thirty years older than her. This is not a reason, because the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi was salam, married ‘A’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, when he was fifty-three years old and she was a girl of nine years old. So being older does not harm. There is no sin in the woman being older, nor any sin in the man being older, because the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi was salam, married Khadijah, may Allaah be pleased with her, when she was forty years old and he was twenty-five years old, before the Revelation came to him, sallallaahu alayhi was salam; that is, she, may Allaah be pleased with her, was fifteen years older than him. Then he married ‘A’ishah, may Allaah be pleased with her, when she was small – six or seven years old and he was fifty-three years old.

Many of those who speak on the radio or television deter people from marriage between men and women of differing ages – this is all wrong & saying such things is not permissable for them. It is obligatory for a woman to look at the (prospective) husband, and if he is righteous and suitable, she should agree, even if he is older than her. Similarly, a man should devote himself to finding a righteous, religious woman, even if she is older than him, if she is still young and still fertile. In short, the age should not be an excuse and it should not be considered something shameful, as long as the man is righteous and the woman is righteous. May Allaah reform the situation of us all.

  1. That’s a pretty fascinating site. I had a quick look and noticed how members of other faiths are regarded under Shariah Law. It’s quite instructive. The idea that the charitable Zakat cannot be given to a non Muslim unless it is likely to make them convert, is considerably different from the more universalist attitudes that apply to both Christian concepts of ‘Charity’ and the Jewish concepts of ‘Tzdaka’

  2. Mary gave birth to Jesus when she was only 12 years of age, and prior to that Moses according to the Talmud allowed girls as young as 3, that’s THREE (3) JUST IN CASE YOU NEVER GOT IT THE FIRST TIME ROUND, to marry. It’s a case that all religions of that time found it acceptable for young girls to marry and settle early!

  3. Alev Brian, I also concur with KC about ‘that was then’. RE the Talmud You will probably never ever find a Jew today saying that underage marriage is acceptable. Your use of an alleged (I will look it up to check) Talmudic quote is purely to take the heat of the undoubted ‘issues’ that Islamic culture has with the idea of an age of consent.

    1. Very true,hardly any sane non Muslim would agree with child brides. Common sense and morales play a big part in coming to that conclusion, unfortunately it seems Muslims lack both after brain washing from birth with out of date Islamic views. Even if they did realise it was wrong the totalitarian nature of Islam forbids them from speaking out
