Child sex in Islam – MEMRI TV.
Dr. Ahmad Al Mu’bi, Saudi Marriage Officiant. LBC TV (Lebanon), June 19, 2008

“Marriage is actually two things: First, we are talking about the marriage contract itself.
This is one thing, while consummating the marriage - having sex with the wife for the first time - is another thing.
There is no minimal age for entering marriage. You can’t have a marriage contract even with a one year old girl,
not to mention a girl of nine, seven, or eight. This is merely a contract (indicating) consent.
The guardian in such a case must be the father, because the father’s opinion is obligatory. Thus, the girl becomes a wife...
But is the girl ready for sex yet or not? What is the appropriate age for having sex for the first time?
This varies according to environment and traditions. In the Yemen, girls were married off at nine, 10, 11, 8, or 13,
while in other countries, they are married off at 16. Some countries have legislated laws forbidding having sex
before the girl is 18. The prophet Muhammad is the model we follow. He took Aisha to be his wife when she
was six, but he had sex with her only when she was nine. When she was six - he married her at the age of six.
And he consummated the marriage by having sex with her for the first time when she was nine. We consider
the prophet Muhammad to be our model.

–Interviewer: My question to you is whether the marriage of a 12 year old boy with an 11 year old girl
is a logical marriage, which is permitted by Islamic law? If the guardian is the father...

There are two different types of guardianship. If the guardian is the father, and he marries his daughter off to a
man of appropriate standing, the marriage is obviously valid. People find themselves in all kinds
of circumstances. Take, for example, a man who has two, three, or four daughters. He does not have any
wives, but he needs to go on a trip. Isn’t it better to marry his daughter to a man, who will protect and
sustain her, and when she reach the proper age, he will have sex with her? Who says all men are ferocious wolves?“
