Hyderabad, June 08:

Muslim marriage age sparks debates in India. Delhi High Court ruling that allowed Muslim girls to marry at the age of 15 is sparking a heated row across India, with some Muslims view the verdict as running against Islamic teachings.

Talking to Siasat, a prominent Social Activist Prof. Rehana Sultana welcomes the HC ruling. She said “the ruling is in compliance with Shariah and we accept it. Earlier Qazis use to feel insecure for writing the bride’s age if she is a minor or below 18 years, but now when the High Court rules in favour of 15 years age, I demand the state governments to implement the ruling for registration of Muslim marriages.” She appeals the Ulemas and scholars to raise their voices for implementing the ruling all over the country.

A 24-year-old private employee Sadia Banu said that “the ruling is based upon the teachings of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and we must accept it. However a girl may not be matured enough to takes up the responsibilities, but based on today’s culture, we must follow it” She added.

The other side

"At 15 you complete school, at 17 you will be in Intermediate, a girl can never be matured at the age of 15. A minor is a minor.” Said Ms. Wajida a 30 year old private employee. She further said that this practice were followed in the olden days, but in the present time it has no place.”

Most of the TV channels are busy highlighting the issue.

Some activists argue that the verdict would allow wealthy people to “purchase” young girls for marriage.

Need to understand Islam (Allah's Religion)

Assalaam Aalaikum w r w b,
First – Everybody should to know about the Allah’s Law about the marriage – Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi wasallam said when the Girl reach Puberty – start searching the match for her – whenever you get good match – Do it the marriage immediately.
If not do so, each and every day is added to the Parents account as a Sin. Because Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi wasallam ordered to every Parent, whenever the Girl reaches Puberty – do the marriage as early as possible.
As per the Allah’s Law – (Delhi Court Verdict) This is the good sign for every Muslim in India to do the marriages of Muslim Girls at the age of 15, Because of this Verdict some or may be Lot of Muslim Parents get advantage to stop doing illegal things - For example – At the marriage of the girl, her age is not enough (i.e. 18 yrs. as per Indian Law), The Qazi cannot written the actual age of girl in marriage booklet, He can write 18years only. This is the Big mistake doing by the parents and the Qazi. If the girl age is under 18 yrs. (For this mistake, the parents are doing lot of illegal things. For example – making Birth Certificate as per the age written in Marriage Booklet, then getting the Passport on wrong Date of Birth, as per mentioned in the marriage Booklet, And many more things.)
So this Delhi Court Verdict trying to help Muslim Ummah and saving from doing illegal activities.
We all Muslims Ummah need to understand the Our Religion Islam and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad Sallalahu Alaihi wasallam in right way, And give the right message of Allah and Prophet Mohammad Sallalahu Alaihi wasallam to who doesn’t know about the Islam and the Sunnah (Muslim and Non-Muslim). I think this is more than enough. Jazakallah Fidda’rain Qairah.

You are a RSS agent mother mother f*******r Just GET-OUT

Balanga

What is this nonsense about abusing Balanga Khan.Kindly use decent language on this forum.

This may be a conspiracy against muslims

This may be a conspiracy against muslims because a very important point is missing here i.e consent of the WALI (guardian, mostly father of girl in this case), because a girl at 15 is not fully matured mentally and can not decide solely herself about her life's most important decision, her father or other guardian can understand better than her for what is good for her life. HC is giving liberty to a 15 yrs old child to go against her parents (WALI) WHICH CAN BE A BIG HEADACHE FOR MUSLIMS AND CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS FOR MUSLIM GIRLS. In Islamic shariah the consent of girl and the father or guardian both are necessary for marriage of girls specially young girls. Muslim scholars and society must oppose this.....CONSENT OF BOTH (THE WALI AND THE GIRL) IS VERY IMPORTANT AND NECESSARY SPECIALLY IN CASE OF 15 TO 20 YEARS GIRLS' MARRIAGES.

Agreed with your comments

You are Great Thinker - May Allah Gives you good in this world and in Hearafter - Aameen suma Aameen

reply to wajida

Wajida Aunty this is not about the maturity but as now a days 8th class 6th class having a boyfriend what it means?
it means they are grown up they reach puberty soon, there is lack of understanding in you the order is for the mandatory age its not asking all to marry at 15 its a good step for the muslims as per your point you can marry at 60 or 80 also we or the HC will not be bothered. take the survey of many schools ask every girl do you like salman or sharukh they will reply i like imran, shoeb, sohail,Arun, tarun etc but hard to select whom i has to marry. Being a working women is not enough follow the islam well practically,so you will be matured automatically with islam. You can continue the studies, as there is no stop in gaining knowledge.Uderstand islam before rising questions like this.

Reply to: "reply to wajida" - Masha'Allah, a perfect reply!

Salam,
Alhamdulillah, answered Ms/Wajida with a good explanation & she should also respond so that the viewers could get a positive impact.
Now a day secular education yielding worldly prosperity hence Muslims loosing the rememberance of Allah. The parents are sole responsible for not preparing their children as per Quran & Sunna, Jazak'Allah.

hell wiith the High Court

hell wiith the High Court,it's taking us to stone-age days.This kind of decisions send bad signals to the world about India.

Reply to:"hell wiith the High Court"

Dead sure, you are a Hindu RSS agent. GET-OUT of here u m

no compulsion

There is no compulsion to get a girl married at 15 yrs of age.
However if in accordance with Islamic teachings the parents desire to get their daughter married at 15 the law will not trouble them.
After all Muslims in India have the liberty to practise their customs.Even second marriages is permitted to Indian Muslims under the law.
Either we should have a common civil code or go with the Shariat.
