90-yr-old Saudi marries 15-yr-old girl, sparks condemnation

Dubai, January 07:

A 90-year-old Saudi man's marriage to a 15-year-old girl in exchange for a fat dowry has sparked widespread condemnation from human rights and social media activists in the kingdom.

The frightened girl locked out her husband refusing him entry to the bedroom for two successive days before fleeing back to her parents' home, the Al-Arabia reported.

But the groom insisted that his marriage was "legal and correct", and that he paid USD 17,500 dowry to marry the girl, who is the daughter of a Yemeni father and Saudi mother.

He vowed to sue his in-laws to give him back the girl or return him the expensive dowry.

The travails of the girl evoked widespread condemnation from the people, who used Twitter to criticise the parents of the girl for giving her out to a man decades older than her.

Suhaila Zein el-Abedin, a member of the Saudi National Association for Human Rights, urged authorities to intervene "as soon as possible to save this child from tragedy."

El-Abedin noted that marriage in Islam must be based on mutual consent and this was not satisfied as demonstrated by the girl's move to lock herself up in the room. She said the girl's parents were also to be held responsible for marrying their daughter to a man of the age of her grand grandfather.

On twitter, Mouhammad Khaled Alnuzha@mkalnuzha, a legal expert asks Is this a case of human trafficking crimes punishable by law?

Nawal Saad @lhnalkhlwd wrote on his account: "When people of reason and wisdom are asked to be silent and the ludicrous are set loose, we will see these anti-human behaviors."

there is NOTHING by FORCE in Islam..

QURAN 2:256 goes on starting with - "There is NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION.... "

Neither marriage nor conversion, or anything FORCIBLE is NOT permitted in Islam. Islam is the ONLY RELIGION ON THE FACE OF THIS PLANET THAT GUARANTEED RIGHTS TO WOMEN. Ensuring JUSTICE/MORALITY is PRIMARY in ANY/ALL cases, in ISLAM! Actions like this - for the sake of MONEY/WEALTH/POWER/etc by "FOLLOWERS" of Islam (or those who pretend to be following, etc) - give BAD NAME TO ISLAM!

Against Sunnah

We have started giving preference to money & forget teaching of Sunnah. It is against Sunnah to marry without consent of the girl. also I request Siasat to avoid publish these kind of news which will create bad Impression on Muslim & Islam.

No,all kinds of news should

No,all kinds of news should come out in light !
This is how we know what's happening around the world.

At least halal not with friends wife

A 55-year-old priest was arrested for allegedly raping his colleague's wife at his house here, police said Monday.

The incident took place Jan 1 night when the victim, in her early 30s, was called to the accused Madan Mohan Sharma's home in Pandav Nagar area in east Delhi on the pretext of making some sweets to offer in the temple and raped.

The victim narrated the incident to her husband who reported the matter to Pandav Nagar Police station the next day.

Afer the victim's medical test, Sharma was arrested from a hideout late Sunday night as he was absconding after the incident.

A police officer said Sharma had also threatened the victim with dire consequences.

He married

At least the person got married and took the responsibility with consent of the girl and she will inherit and her son or daughter will not be bastards they will be born millionaires. What about those who just have sex and leave the children on mercy of street dogs

90-yr-old Saudi marries 15-yr-old girl

As long as the marriage took place according to law, after due consent of bride and groom and witnessed, such a marriage is lawful.

It is crystal clear in Islam that a girl who reaches the age of menarche is eligible for marriage. Menarche can happen as early as age of eight and as late as thirteen. UmmatulMomineen Ayesha, may Allah be pleased with her, was nine. No scholar of Islam has ever dissented.

However girl locking herself up is a matter for the local Qazi to investigate. If she has changed her mind than she can obtain a Qula and she must refund the Mehr.

The Ninety year old Muslim is held harmless as he is following Sharia.

It is the people who do not have knowledge of islam who are the problem. They allow open fornication and adultary and homosexuality yet start critisizing muslims who follow the truth.

this assholes use twitter

this assholes use twitter and other social networks to let islam down with there dirty stories shame on this people

What is wrong as long as the

What is wrong as long as the MAN can do it still and the girl got so much money as entertainment tax,old man may die then she can marry in the same money one 16 years old unemployed soon.!

Interesting comment..

Wow very nice advice. Why don't you let your sister marry that old man so your family can enjoy his money after he dies. What a shame that Muslims like you are ruining the name of Islam.

For uneducated and cheap people like you, money is everything. This shows that if you won't mind this little girl marry a 90 year old, then it is very well true that fake Muslims like you, for example, Taliban and Al Qaeda are killing innocent men, women and children with the donated money of tainted and western and yahudi-backed Arab leaders, who are just name-sake Muslims.

Shame on you for your cheap comment.

Sharia law

This issue cannot be solved from common man knowledge..Sharia rule as a law is more than enough to solve this issue.. May Allah swt guide us all.

What is wrong in it?

It is perfect in ISLAM.

What wrong- and

Which Islam, the Islam which comes out from Royal Darbar, Darbari Mullha, Shahi Imams or from the blessed Prophet, I wish your daughter get married and next day the groom got "JAME E Shadath" death, than you have money it will be enjoyed by all, after all according to you it is perfect and in fact very perfect, shame on the Muslims like you.

The wrong thing in this

The wrong thing in this marriage is girl is not willing to go in his bed room means it could be a force marriage, may be the girl was not willing to marry him and force marriage is not valid in Islam both the bride and groom has to agree for the marriage in islam, girl's father alone can't take the decision.

Idiot

R u an idiot, how u call it is perfect???

VERY BAD

ITS VERY BAD TO HEAR THIS TYPE OF NEWS FROM MUSLIM SIDE

Don't overreact no country

Don't overreact no country in this World is perfect.

islami law never allow this type of unhumanity its happening because of saudi arabian law & their mentality saudi law never allow their womens to get marry with any non-arabic (indian/pakistani/etc.) bt the majority of saudi women wants to marry other then saudi national.

itna sannata kyun

Muslim samaj ke thekedaron koi kucch bol kyun nahin raha??

This happens only in ?

This sort of things happens in which countries ?

It is perfectly OK in Islam

It is perfectly OK in Islam to marry a girl when she attains puberty.

A man can marry up to 4 wives at a time.

The Wives can come from poor, widow, divorce backgrounds.

In this case the poor parents did the bes they can to get her married instead of letting her go astray.
