Guess how old was Muhammad’s child bride when he married her? Aisha was six years old but thee marriage was consummated when she turned nine. And Aisha was also Muhammad’s favorite wife. That’s why child bride is okay in Islam. The believers are just imitating their prophet. ( Read link – The Tragedy of Aisha – WikiIslam)
From Daily Mail:
Muslim girls in Sydney are dressed in white from head to toe as part of a hijab ceremony to signify the age when they must cover up their bodies, with an Islamic imam slamming it as a step toward Sharia law.
Australia’s most senior Shia cleric Sheikh Kamal Mousselmani presided over the ceremony where 24 girls walked on stage to show their maturity.
‘The hijab is compulsory for the girls when they become nine according to our religion,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.
The girls were dressed in white, the same shade as a wedding dress, however Sheikh Mousselmani denied the ceremony was about preparing girls for marriage, despite Islamic law saying girls reach maturity at the age of eight.
‘You want me to tell you that it was a marriage ceremony. Definitely not,’ he said.
However Adelaide Shia leader Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi said Islam classified eight as the adult age for girls and was worried by the ceremony’s symbolism.
‘I confirm that according to Islamic jurisprudence, a Muslim girl reaches the stage of maturity at eight to nine years of age,’ he said.
