THIS IS THE SHIAH RELIGION

BY

MAULANA KHALID DORAT

The Religion in Your Town – Read All about it….

It has come to our attention as concerned Ulamaa that deceptive preachers have been trying to spread a new and divisive religion in South Africa, intent on creating confusion and developing hatred amongst each other.

These preachers have Muslim sounding names, but what they are trying to slowly indoctrinate people into, is not Christianity, It’s not Judaism, It’s not Hinduism, and it’s definitely not Islam. Let’s see if YOU can guess what this religion is, based on their own stated beliefs:

v  They say they believe in God, but they say that:

v  He can and often makes mistakes

v  He can and often forgets

v  He plans but He is so incapable that often His plans don’t come into existence the way He planned

v  He revealed a book of guidance for people but no one has ever seen it as their leader is hiding away

with it for the last 1200 years in a cave that no one knows the location.

v  When He is angry He cannot differentiate between friends and enemies

v  He did not create everything that exists

v  They say they believe in the Prophets, but:

v  their leaders are higher than Prophets and are getting revelation directly from God

v  their leaders are the face of God, the eyes of God and the tongue of God amongst His creation

v  their leaders can make things allowed or not allowed as per their will

v  People are rewarded in this strange religion for:

v  Lying to and deceiving others

v  Giving their daughters and wives up for a practice similar to prostitution

v  Adultery and fornication

v  The following is amongst the things allowed according to their religion:

v  Looking at private parts of others

v  To let someone else have intercourse with his wife

v  Anal intercourse etc

 

Can you guess what the name of this devilish religion is?

 

Maybe you are familiar with some of these statements and you know what the religion is, but for those of you who are unaware, let me tell you that these are the beliefs of the evil…

 

SHIA RELIGION

These preachers of Shiasm will however not let you know that these are their beliefs. Of course not.

They will deny it as part of their practice of lying, they will appear as very friendly and helpful Muslims while they slowly indoctrinate you into their kufr belief system and take you out of the fold of Islam.

They do this by first creating a resentment and hatred towards the truthful scholars of Islam, the righteous Ulamaa of our country and the Madaaris and other institutions by identifying and magnifying small grievances that may exist, lying about the statements and talks of the Ulamaa and fabricating stories to support their false views.

Then they do the same about the Sahabah (RA), [the illustrious companions of the Prophet (SAW)]

Then they will tell you that the Quráan is not complete and it has been altered and the real one is with their Imam.

If you start to believe this, then by now you are on the verge of going out of the fold of Islam and becoming a Shia.

 

So be aware, don’t be duped…

Don’t fall for their programs that they arrange under false titles, health talks, sweet talks, “get togethers” etc. where they begin to poison your Imaan, targeted especially towards the ladies.

 

See below what else their practices and beliefs are and protect your Imaan:

  • Their Kalimah: La Ila Haa Illallahu Muhammadur Rasoolullahi Aliyun Waliyullahi Wasiyyu Rasulillahi Wa Khalifatuhu Bila Faslin
  • Their Azaan: Ash Hadu Anna – Alian Waliullah Wa Rasulullah wa Khalifatu hu bila faslin (Meaning: I bear witness that Ali (RA) is the Vicegerent of Allah and the Messenger of Allah and Allah’s Khalifa without a time interval)
  • What they say about the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam):
  • He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was scared of the creation of Allah and did not propagate the Deen correctly.
  • The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam) asked for payment for teaching Islam
  • The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam) forgot Surahs of the Quran that were revealed to Him (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam)
  • Their fundamental belief of Imams:
  • they believe in 12 Imaams after Rasulullaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).
  • they believe the Imams are Masoom (innocent and sinless)
  • the Imams can change what is Halaal to Haraam and Haraam to Halaal
  • Imaams are higher in status than the Prophets including our Nabi Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
  • The Imams have more knowledge than the Prophets (A.S.)
  • They say if one does not believe the above about their Imaams then one is a Kaafir.
  • What they say about Ayesha (RA) who is one of the mothers of the believers and who has the honor of Allah confirming her chastity and purity in Qur’aan itself:
  • They say she is in Jahannam and she became a Murtad (disbeliever) after the passing away of the Prophet (SAW)
  • They say she poisoned the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) & that she committed adultery
  • What they say about the Sahabah (RA)
  • All of them became Murtad except a few
  • Abu Bakr (RA), Umar (RA) & Uthman (RA) usurped the Khilafat from Ali (RA) who was supposed to be the Khalifah (even though not a single person ever said this during their time)
  • What they say about the Muslims who do not believe in their falsehood
  • They say we are Kaafir, worse than dogs and swines
  • They say we are all illegitimate children, only the Shias are legitimate
  • They say the most dirty water is that left over by us
  • They say we are created from the soil of Jahannam and the Shias are created from the soil of Jannah
  • Their scholars say it is permissible to kill us and and take our wealth with no reason
  • What Hazrat Ali (RA) said about them
  • Addressing them directly he said: ““By Allah, how bad are you for igniting flames of war.”
  • Also to them directly: “I always apprehended from you consequences of treachery and I had seen through you in the garb of the deceitful.”
  • “They have no loyalty, nor any integrity in word or deed. They are in disagreement. They claim that their hearts are with us, but their swords are drawn against us.”
  • Other strange and hypocritical beliefs and practices:
  • The land of Karbala in Iran is better than the Kaabah and it is more virtuous to go there instead of Umra & Hajj
  • They say Salaat can be made in the direction of their “Imams” graves and in the direction of Karbala
  • They say the people of Madinah are 70 times dirtier than the people of Makkah
  • They love the jews, in fact it was a jew by the name of Abdullah Bin Saba who started this false religion
  • They say If you commit Mutah (temporary marriage which they use to justify adultery) four times you become higher in status than Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)
  • Prophets make mistakes which eventually deprives them of Prophethood & Adam (A.S.) is worse than Shaitaan.

 

May Allah save us all from these Kufr beliefs and from these sweet talking preachers who are plotting day and night to rob us and our children of Imaan.

PART  TWO

(Continued from Vol.22 No.1)

By Sayyid Husain

Al-Musawi

The author, a close student of Ayatullah Khomeini, was at one time a member  of the Shiah clergy. Revulsed by the obscenity,immorality and crudity of Shiah belief  practices, he abandoned the Shiah religion and wrote this expose` which reveals that Shi’ism is a religion for sexual perverts and maniacs.

Nikah Mut’ah


Nikah mut’ah has been practiced in the ugliest forms. The women have been humiliated in the worst forms of humiliation. Most of them (Shi’ahs) fulfill their lusts in the name of religion behind the curtain that is called mut’ah.

They have brought riwaayahs (narratons) that give motivations to practise mut’ah, setting and detailing its rewards, as well as punishments on those who do not do it. In fact those who do not practice mut’ah are considered kaafir. As Saduq narrated from As Sadiq that he said, “Indeed, mut’ah is my religion and the religion of my father. Whoever denies it, it means he is denying our religion and having the aqeedah of a religion other than our religion,” (Man La Yahdhuruhu Al Faqih,3/366). This is the declaration of kaafir on those who reject mut’ah.

To strengthen further this mut’ah, the name of Rasulullah was even brought in, such as written in “Man La Yahdhuruhu Al Faqih”, 3/366, “Whoever does mut’ah with a woman, he will be safe from the wrath of Allah, the Compeller. Whoever does mut’ah two times, he shall be gathered together with the people of goodness. Whoever does mut’ah three times, he will be side by side with me in paradise.”

It is the spirit of these words that drives the ulama of the city of knowledge, Najaf, the dominion of the imams, to do mut’ah with many women. Such as the ulama’ Sayiid Shadr, Barwajardi, Syairazi, Qazwani, Sayyid Madani and many others.

Check out this riwaayah. From Sayyid Fathullah Al Kashani, he narrated in Tafsir Manhaj As-Sadiqin, from the Prophet SAW, verily he said, “Whoever does mut’ah once, his status is like Husain AS; one who does it two times, his status is like Hasan AS; the one who does it three times, his status is the same as Ali Bin Abu Talib; and whoever does mut’ah four times, his status is the same as my status.”

Indeed, it does not make sense. Say there was an evil man doing mut’ah once, his status is the same as Husain AS; and then mut’ah twice, his status goes up again. That easy?? Are the status of Rasulullah SAW and the imams that low?? Even if the person doing mut’ah has attained a high status of imaan, is his status the same as the status of Husain, his brother, his father and his grandfather?

(Mut’ah in practice is sanctified fornication/adultery. It is to hire a woman for sexual gratification in lieu of the payment of  a sum of money. In other words, it is holy prostitution – The Majlis)

The Imam Has Mut’ah With A Small Child

When Imam Khomeini stayed in Iraq, I went back and forth to visit him. I studied under him, thus the relationship between myself and him became very close. At one time, he agreed to go to a city in the framework of fulfilling an invitation, namely the city that is located on the western part of Mosul, that could be reached in about half an hour by car.

Imam Khomeini asked me to go along with him. We were received and honoured with an extraordinary honour during our stay with one of the Shi’ah families who lived there. He had pledged allegiance to propagate the creed of Shi’ah in that region.

When the visit ended and on our way home, on the road, on our return, we passed through Baghdad and Imam Khomeini wished to rest from the tiring journey. Then he instructed that we head to a resort area where there lived a man from Iran named Sayyid Sahib. There was a pretty strong friendship between him and Imam. Sayyid Sahib asked us to stay overnight at his place that night and Imam Khomeini agreed.

When the time of Isha’ came, dinner for us was served. The people who attended kissed Imam’s hand and asked him questions regarding a number of issues and Imam answered them.

When it was time to sleep and the people had already gone home, Imam Khomeini saw a little girl, her age was around 5 years old but she was very beautiful. Imam requested from her father, i.e. Sayyid Sahib, to present the girl to him so that he could do mut’ah with her. So the father agreed to it, feeling very pleased. So Imam Khomeini slept and the girl was in his embrace, while we heard the cries and screams of the child.

The night passed by. When the morning came, we sat down and had breakfast. The Imam looked at me and noticed very obvious signs of unpleasantness and disagreement in my face, because how could he do mut’ah with a little girl, whereas in the house there were girls who are already baligh (adolescent)?

Imam Khomaini asked me, “Sayyid Husain, what is your opinion about doing mut’ah with a small child?” I said to him, “The most supreme words are your words, what’s true is your acts, and you are a mujtahid imam. It is not possible for me to opine or say unless it is in accordance with your opinion and words. It needs to be understood that it is not possible for me to oppose your fatwa.”

Then he said, “Sayyid Husain, indeed the ruling of having mut’ah with a small child is permissible but only with fondling, kisses and squeezing with the thighs. As for the sexual intercourse, indeed she is not strong enough to do it.” See also the book of Imam Khomeini titled “Tahrir Al Wasilah”, 2/241, number 12, which allows mut’ah with babies that are still suckling.

Mut’ah with Married Women

So obvious, the damages caused by mut’ah are very huge and complex such as:

First, it’s violating against the nass of the Shari’ah, for making halaal what is made haraam by Allah.

Second, the fake riwaayahs that are diverse and their attribution to the imams, whereas therein contains vituperations which would revulse a person who  has even an atom of imaan in his heart.

Third, the damage inflicted  by allowing mut’ah with a woman who already has a husband. In these circumstances a husband will not feel safe with his wife because of the possibility that later his wife will have nikah mut’ah with another man. This is damage upon damage! Nobody can imagine how the feelings of a husband who finds out that the wife who is under his care has mut’ah with another man.

Fourth, the fathers  also feel insecure about their daughters, because it is possible that their daughters would do mut’ah without his permission, and then suddenly get pregnant with God knows who.

Fifth, most people who do mut’ah allow themselves to do nikah mut’ah but will object if their daughters are wedded by means of mut’ah. They are aware that this mut’ah is similar to zina (fornication) and is an aib (shame) for them, but they themselves are doing it with other people’s daughters. Supposing nikah mut’ah is something that is allowed by Shari’ah, why do most fathers feel disinclined to allow their daughters or relatives to have nikah mut’ah?

Sixth, in the mut’ah marriage, there is no witness, announcement, and consent of the female’s guardian, and the spousal inheritance law does not apply, but she is just a contracted ‘wife’. The permissibility of mut’ah  opens opportunities for young adults to drown in a puddle of sin that  corrupts the image of religion.

So the danger of mut’ah is very clear from the standpoint of religious, moral and social life. Thus mut’ah is haraam as it is a conglomeration of moral, spiritual and physical dangers.

The claim (i.e the claim of the Shiahs) that the prohibition of mut’ah only applied specifically on the day of Khaibar, is a claim that is not based on daleel (proof of the Shariah). Besides that, if the prohibition only applied on the day of Khaibar, there must have been an affirmation from Rasulullah. The meaning of the words that mut’ah marriage was forbidden on the day of Khaibar is that, its prohibition commenced on the day of Khaibar and will be in force until the Judgment Day. As for the words of our ulama (ulama of Shi’ah), they are a ridicule of the nass of  the Shari’ah.

Numerous people who indulge in mut’ah mix up the children and mothers, the women and their brothers, fathers…. and other chaos.

A woman came to me asking about the incident that befell her. She said that she had indulged in nikah mut’ah with an influential personality of the  ulama fraternity, Sayyid Husain Sadr, twenty years ago, and she got pregnant. After having enough, he divorced her. She swore that she was pregnant from the relationship with Sayyid Sadr, because no one else did mut’ah with her except Sayyid Sadr. After her beautiful daughter became an adult, and  was ready for marriage, her mother discovered that the daughter was pregnant. When enquired about it, she said that she had had nikah mut’ah with Sayyid Sadr and her pregnancy was because of that nikah mut’ah. The mother was shocked and lost control and said that Sayyid Sadr is her father. And then the mother told the story to her daughter, his flesh and blood! In Iran, such incidents are innumerable and perennially happening countless times!

Let us refer to the words of Allah SWT, “But let them who find not [the means for] marriage abstain [from sexual relations] until Allah enriches them from His bounty….”

(An Nuur:33).

Whoever is not able to marry in a shar’ie way because of the lack of provision, let him guard his chastity until Allah gives rizq (sustenance) to him so that he is able to marry. Supposing mut’ah is made halaal, surely Allah would not have commanded to guard the chastity and wait until the time comes that the affairs of marriage are eased for him.

It has been equally known that Islam came to command  virtuous deeds and forbid immoral deeds. Islam came to actualize the welfare of the Allah’s slaves so that their way of life is well-regulated. On the other hand, it cannot be doubted anymore that mut’ah will disturb life. Mut’ah entails incalculable damages.

Indeed, the outbreak of the practices of mut’ah will plunge the ummah into the lending of the private parts. The lending of the private parts means a man will give his wife or mother to other men. (In fact, this is precisely what is happening in Shiah society – The Majlis)

It is very unfortunate, the fatwas about the lending of the private parts are promoted a lot by the ulama of the Shi’ah, such as As Sistani, Sayyid Sadr, Ash Shairazi, Ath Thabathabai and Al Barwajardi. Most of them allow their guests to borrow their wives if the guests are interested and will be lent during the guests’ stay.

It is our duty to  warn the general public about this indecent practice, so that they will not accept the fatwas of the personages which allow this immoral and indecent practice.

The matter does not just stop here. It even allows  sodomy with the women. They narrated a few riwaayahs and ascribe them to the imams.

(To be concluded,

Insha-Allah)

KHOMEINI AND SHIA PEDOPHILIA/Shia Perversion

Mufti Taqi Fatawa on shia being Kafir


Question:

Please comment on the endorsement of Mufti Taqi Uthmani Saheb of the Amman Message wherein all Shias are endorsed as muslims and there being no possibility of Takfir against them.

Answer:

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Recently we have received a couple of queries regarding the views of Respected Hazrat Mufti Taqi Uthmani Saheb daamat barakatuhum about “Amman Message”. It states:

“Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shi’i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible”

The website promotes that more than 500 reputable authorities have endorsed this declaration. Many laymen have accepted it as a unanimous consensus of the Ulama. (Ijmaa). We wish to say that this is indeed not the case and even Mufti Taqi Uthmani’s endorsement is not in its totality of this “Amman Message”.

The same website which has posted the endorsement of Hazrat Mufti Taqi Saheb has also posted his seven page fatwa in this regard. We are surprised as to why has this fatwa not been translated into English for the common readers. This Fatwa shows the accurate stance of Mufti Saheb. On page 3 of this fatwa Hazrat Mufti Saheb categorizes those Madhahîb who claim to be Muslim into 3 distinct groups. In the first of these three groups Hazrat Mufti Saheb says,

“First type: Are those who claim to be Muslim, but reject something which has been necessarily known to be from the religion. They hold firmly, for example, that the Prophethood is continued after Nabi Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and they believe in the prophethood of one of the Dajjals who has claimed prophethood after our Noble Prophet, seal of the prophethood sallallahu alayhi wasallam, like the Qadîyânîs; or they hold firmly that the Noble Quran which we have today is changed, Al’Iyaazubillah. And that our Quraan is not the real on, like what some of the extremists among the Shîas say; or they hold firmly (in the aqeeda of ) Aloohiya or some of the specific attributes of it being in one of the humans, like what is attributed to Alawiyeen(Alawis) and others besides them. Then these all are not Muslims and it is necessary to make Takfir of them.”

From the above we understand adequately that Mufti Saheb has not endorsed the Amman Message in its totality, though he has elaborated the Sharii stance of Takfeer. This first category includes those upon whom takfeer can be made, rather it is necessary. …That is to say, takfir will be necessary upon them as well.

Madrassah In’aamiyyah

What age did A’isha r.a. have when she married the Prophet , sallalaahu alayhi wa sallam? 6,8,9,18?


Question
I was reading the article related to Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā about her marriage with our Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. In this article, the author has given some facts to prove that she was not nine when she got married.
Kindly tell me your views in detail. Hereunder is the article:
IT is said that Hazrat Aisha was six years old when her nikah was performed with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Makkah, and nine years old when she moved in to live with her husband in Madina after Hijra.
This piece of misinformation has led to the wrong view that child marriage has the sanction of Islam. It must be noted that establishing the authenticity of hadiths, the narrators’ circumstances and the conditions at that time have to be correlated with historical facts. There is only one hadith by Hisham which suggests the age of Hazrat Aisha as being nine when she came to live with her husband.
Many authentic hadiths also show that Hisham’s narration is incongruous with several historical facts about the Prophet’s life, on which there is consensus. With reference to scholars such as Umar Ahmed Usmani, Hakim Niaz Ahmed and Habibur Rehman Kandhulvi, I would like to present some arguments in favour of the fact that Hazrat Aisha was at least 18 years old when her nikah was performed and at least 21 when she moved into the Prophet’s house to live with him.
According to Umar Ahmed Usmani, in Surah Al-Nisa, it is said that the guardian of the orphans should keep testing them, until they reach the age of marriage, before returning their property (4:6). From this scholars have concluded that the Quran sets a minimum age of marriage which is at least puberty. Since the approval of the girl has a legal standing, she cannot be a minor.
Hisham bin Urwah is the main narrator of this hadith. His life is divided into two periods: in 131A.H. the Madani period ended, and the Iraqi period started, when Hisham was 71 years old. Hafiz Zehbi has spoken about Hisham’s loss of memory in his later period. His students in Madina, Imam Malik and Imam Abu Hanifah, do not mention this hadith. Imam Malik and the people of Madina criticised him for his Iraqi hadiths.
All the narrators of this hadith are Iraqis who had heard it from Hisham. Allama Kandhulvi says that the words spoken in connection with Hazrat Aisha’s age were tissa ashara, meaning 19, when Hisham only heard (or remembered), tissa, meaning nine. Maulana Usmani thinks this change was purposely and maliciously made later.
Historian Ibn Ishaq in his Sirat Rasul Allah has given a list of the people who accepted Islam in the first year of the proclamation of Islam, in which Hazrat Aisha’s name is mentioned as Abu Bakr’s “little daughter Aisha”. If we accept Hisham’s calculations, she was not even born at that time.
Some time after the death of the Prophet’s first wife, Hazrat Khadija, Khawla suggested to the Prophet that he get married again, to a bikrun, referring to Hazrat Aisha (Musnad Ahmed). In Arabic bikrun is used for an unmarried girl who has crossed the age of puberty and is of marriageable age. The word cannot be used for a six-year-old girl.
Some scholars think that Hazrat Aisha was married off so early because in Arabia girls mature at an early age. But this was not a common custom of the Arabs at that time. According to Allama Kandhulvi, there is no such case on record either before or after Islam. Neither has this ever been promoted as a Sunnah of the Prophet. The Prophet married off his daughters Fatima at 21 and Ruquiyya at 23. Besides, Hazrat Abu Bakr, Aisha’s father, married off his eldest daughter Asma at the age of 26.
Hazrat Aisha narrates that she was present on the battlefield at the Battle of Badar (Muslim). This leads one to conclude that Hazrat Aisha moved into the Prophet’s house in 1 A.H. But a nine-year-old could not have been taken on a rough and risky military mission.
In 2 A.H, the Prophet refused to take boys of less than 15 years of age to the battle of Uhud. Would he have allowed a 10-year-old girl to accompany him? But Anas reported that he saw Aisha and Umme Sulaim carrying goatskins full of water and serving it to the soldiers (Bukhari). Umme Sulaim and Umme Ammara, the other women present at Uhud, were both strong, mature women whose duties were the lifting of the dead and injured, treating their wounds, carrying water in heavy goatskins, supplying ammunition and even taking up the sword.
Hazrat Aisha used the kunniat, the title derived from the name of a child, of Umme Abdullah after her nephew and adopted son.
If she was six when her nikah was performed, she would have been only eight years his senior, hardly making him eligible for adoption. Also, a little girl could not have given up on ever having her own child and used an adopted child’s name for her kunniat.
Hazrat Aisha’s nephew Urwah once remarked that he was not surprised about her amazing knowledge of Islamic law, poetry and history because she was the wife of the Prophet and the daughter of Abu Bakr. If she was eight when her father migrated, when did she learn poetry and history from him?
There is consensus that Hazrat Aisha was 10 years younger than her elder sister Asma, whose age at the time of the hijrah, or migration to Madina, was about 28. It can be concluded that Hazrat Aisha was about 18 years old at migration. On her moving to the Prophet’s house, she was a young woman at 21. Hisham is the single narrator of the hadith whose authenticity is challenged, for it does not correlate with the many historical facts of the time.
The writer is a scholar of the Quran and writes on contemporary issues.

Answer
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Rebuttal of a Fitnah: The age of Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāh Anhā during marriage
A person Nilofar Ahmed has published an article in the Dawn newspaper claiming Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age was at least eighteen during marriage. This is substantiated with statements of Muhaddithīn, Ayāt, and historical facts.
This research rebuts the claim and points out the inaccuracies and academic dishonesty in the article. This is a research by Mowlāna Abdul Azīm, who is also a student in Takhassus Fil-Hadīth at the Darul Iftaa. Read the article of the Dawn newspaper first. You will observe how a simple minded person can get easily convinced with the article.
Mufti Ebrahim Desai

The Rebuttal
Due to the limitations of the mind, there are certain issues that are not easily comprehended by everyone. Generally there are two approaches in addressing such issues. The first is an apologetic one. In this, one endeavors to hide a reality in order to earn the confidence and pleasure of others. Authentic facts are denied and replaced by apparently appealing information with the fear that the masses, especially non-Muslims will have a negative understanding of Islām if the factual situation is presented.
The second approach is to present the factual situation of the matter. The feelings and sentiments of people are not considered. It is done with the firm belief that Allāh will defend and preserve His Dīn. While the intention in the first approach is noble, it is dangerous. The consequences of twisting information to please people are too ghastly to consider. When research uncovers the truth, Islām will be blemished contrary to ones hope of presenting a noble picture of Islām. It is also academic dishonesty and against the spirit of honesty and truthfulness which are the hall marks of Islām.
The age of Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā during her marriage with Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam is often highlighted and negatively presented in the context of child marriage. In an attempt to avoid the accusation of child marriage in Islām, some people have adopted an apologetic approach and began distorting the factual situation of Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age during marriage. This approach is dangerous and is based on a wrong premise. We have to be bold to claim that child marriage is not prohibited in Islām. However, there are rules that govern the issue to safeguard the interest of the child.
This article is a rebuttal of an essay written by Nilofar Ahmed that was produced in the Dawn newspaper on 17/02/2012. The essay is based on the following incorrect premises:
• Prohibition of child marriage
• Historical facts must be correlated with authentic narrations
The writer claims that the misinformation of Aisha Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age at the time of her marriage being six led to the wrong view that child marriage has sanction of Islām. The second premise is that authentic narrations must correlate with historical facts. Both premises are incorrect. Child marriage is permissible. There is no difference of opinion on this from at least the four main schools of thought, Hanafī, Shafi’ī, Mālikī, and Hambalī. Yes, there are rules that govern child marriage to preserve and protect the interest of the child.
Furthermore, historical facts are not accurate. They cannot be a measure to determine the authenticity of Ahādīth, especially if the Ahādīth themselves are clearly authentic. The guiding measure should be the Ahādīth and not historical factors. Historical factors are subservient and subordinate to authentic Ahādīth. This is a basic rule. No reliable scholar would ignore such basics. This brings to question the qualifications of the writer of the article in reference. Remember the golden advice: Be careful from who you take your Dīn.
The proof for Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age during marriage is in Sahīh al-Bukhārī and Sahīh Muslim. Consider the following Ahādīth:

حدثنا محمد بن يوسف، حدثنا سفيان، عن هشام، عن أبيه، عن عائشة رضي الله عنها:أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم تزوجها وهي بنت ست سنين، وأدخلت عليه وهي بنت تسع، ومكثت عنده تسعا (صحيح البخاري, ج 10، ص 466-467، دار البشائر الاسلامية)
Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā reports that Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married her while she was six years old. She was sent to stay with Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam when she wasnine and she lived with Nabī Sallalllāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam for nine years.
(Sahīh al-Bukhārī)
وحدثنا يحيى بن يحيى، أخبرنا أبو معاوية، عن هشام بن عروة، ح وحدثنا ابن نمير، واللفظ له، حدثنا عبدة هو ابن سليمان، عن هشام، عن أبيه، عن عائشة، قالت: «تزوجني النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وأنا بنت ست سنين، وبنى بي وأنا بنت تسع سنين (صحيح مسلم، ج 2، ص 1039، دار إحياء التراث العربي – بيروت)
Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā says, “Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married me when I wassix years old, and he started living with me when I was nine years old.
(Sahīh Muslim)

The Ummah has accepted the narrations that appear in Sahīh al-Bukhāri and Sahīh Muslim as authentic. Allāmah Hāfidh bin Hajar al-Asqalāni Rahimahullāh states in “Sharh al-Nukhbah” that the Ulamā are unanimous in accepting Sahīh al-Bukhārī and Sahīh Muslim. [1] Allāmah Sakhāwī states in “Fath al-Mughīth” that Sahīh al-Bukhārī and Sahīh Muslim are the most authentic books of Hadīth. [2]
The writer of the article objects on the Ahādīth of Sahīh al-Bukhārī and Sahīh Muslim saying that there is weakness in one of the narrators, namely Hishām bin Urwah Rahimahullāh. The writer further states, “There is only one hadith by Hisham which suggests the age of Hazrat Aisha as being nine when she came to live with her husband.”
The writer incorrectly claims Hafidh Dhahabī Rahimahullāh has spoken about Hisham’s loss of memory in his later period. Hereunder are the actual wordings of Allāmah Dhahabī Rahimahullāh:

هشام بن عروة [ع] ، أحد الاعلام.
حجة إمام، لكن في الكبر تناقص حفظه، ولم يختلط أبدا، ولا عبرة بما قاله أبو الحسن بن القطان من أنه وسهيل بن أبي صالح اختلطا، وتغيرا.
نعم الرجل تغير قليلا ولم يبق حفظه كهو في حال الشبيبة، فنسى بعض محفوظه أو وهم، فكان ماذا! أهو معصوم من النسيان!
ولما قدم العراق في آخر عمره حدث بجملة كثيرة من العلم، في غضون ذلك يسير أحاديث لم يجودها، ومثل هذا يقع لمالك ولشعبة ولوكيع ولكبار الثقات، فدع عنك الخبط وذر خلط الائمة الاثبات بالضعفاء والمخلطين، فهشام شيخ الإسلام (مبزان الاعتدال)
Hishām bin Urwah is one of the great luminaries, an authority and a leader. When he aged, his memory slightly decreased however he never became a Mukhtalit (one who lost memory and errs in Hadīth). There is no consideration for what some people have said regarding Hishām that he became a Mukhtalit.
How great of a person was Hishām! His memory only weakened slightly and did not remain as it was in his youth. Hence he did forget and err on certain occasions. So what? Is he not human that he is protected from forgetfulness!
When he arrived in Irāq towards the end of his life, he narrated many Ahādīth. Amongst the many Ahādīth narrated, only a few were not said perfectly. But this was also the situation with the likes of Imām Mālik, Imām Shu’bah, Wakī’, and other great giants of Islām. Therefore, leave your incorrect uproar! Don’t mix up the strong, reliable narrators with the weak ones because Hishām is Shaikhul Islām.”
(Mīzān al-I’tidāl)

From the above quotations, the writer’s distortion of facts is clear. Such an attitude disqualifies one from academic merit. The words of Allāmah Dhahabī Rahimahullāh were stated in support of Hishām bin Urwah Rahimahullāh and the writer created an image that Allāmah Dhahabī Rahimahullāh does not accept Hishām’s narrations. Furthermore, Hafidh bin Hajar says in the introduction of his great commentary to Sahīh al-Bukhārī that all the experts of Hadīth consider Hishām’s Ahādīth to be authoritative and sufficient to be used as evidence. [3] Also, Imām al-Bukhārī and Imām Muslim considered Hishām to be very strong. That is why they included his narrations in their books of Hadīth.
Nevertheless, for argument’s sake, even if we do consider Hishām’s narrations to be weak, there are other narrations without Hishām in their chains that prove Aishāh Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age to be six at the time of marriage and nine at the time she started to reside with Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. Imām Muslim narrates the following Hadīth in which Hishām is not in the chain:
حدثنا يحيى بن يحيى، وإسحاق بن إبراهيم، وأبو بكر بن أبي شيبة، وأبو كريب، قال يحيى، وإسحاق: أخبرنا، وقال الآخران: حدثنا أبو معاوية، عن الأعمش، عن إبراهيم، عن الأسود، عن عائشة، قالت: «تزوجها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلموهي بنت ست، وبنى بها وهي بنت تسع، ومات عنها وهي بنت ثمان عشرة (صحيح مسلم، ج 2، ص 1039، دار إحياء التراث العربي – بيروت)
Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā reports that Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married her when she was six years old, he started living with her when she was nine years old, and he passed away when she was eighteen years old.
(Sahīh Muslim)

In Sunan al-Nasaī, a narration with a similar meaning is mentioned without Hishām in the chain. The Hadīth is mentioned with the chain:
أَخْبَرَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ سَعْدِ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ أَبِي مَرْيَمَ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا عَمِّي، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ أَيُّوبَ، قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنِي عُمَارَةُ بْنُ غَزِيَّةَ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ: «تَزَوَّجَنِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَوَهِيَ بِنْتُ سِتِّ سِنِينَ، وَبَنَى بِهَا وَهِيَ بِنْتُ تِسْعٍ (سنن النسائ، ج 6، ص 131، مكتب المطبوعات الإسلامية – حلب)
Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā relates that Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married me while she was a six years old girl and he lived with her when she was nine years old.
(Sunan al-Nasaī)

Also if we look at the date of Aishah Radhiyallāh Anhā’s demise and her age when she passed away, it becomes clear that her age at the time of her marriage with Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was indeed six. In “Mawāhib al-Laduniyyah”, Allāmah Qastalānī Rahimahullāh mentions that Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā passed away fifty seven years after the migration and at that time she was sixty six years old. [4] Allāmah Qastalāni also mentions that she was married to Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam three years prior to the migration. [5] When all of these facts are put together, we identify that Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age at the time of her marriage was six.
A second objection presented by the writer is that the Qurān sets puberty to be the minimum age of marriage. To back up her claim, the writer brings Ayah number six of Surah al-Nisā. Hereunder is the Ayah:
وَابْتَلُوا الْيَتَامَى حَتَّى إِذَا بَلَغُوا النِّكَاحَ (سورة النساء، رقم الاية 6)
And test the orphans until they reach a marriageable age. (Surah al-Nisā)
The writer uses a general Ayah to support a specific claim. It is similar to one claiming wine is permissible and supports that with the permissibility of drinking water! The intent of this Ayah is to explain that children, well before they reach puberty should be tested through small assignments of buying and selling in order to determine their ability to conduct themselves in transactions on their own. This process of practical experimentation should continue till puberty. This is the time of special assessment. Now it should be determined if they have become smart and self-reliant in their affairs. Once this is sensed as “dependable”, it is time to hand over their property to them. [6]
The word “marriageable age” is used to refer to puberty because one is able to fulfill the purpose of marriage i.e. procreation after one reaches puberty. [7] However, in no way does this Ayah forbid the marriages of those who are not mature. In fact there is a consensus of the four Imāms, namely Imām Abū Hanīfah, Imām Mālik, Imām Shāf’ī, and Imām Ahmed Rahimumullāh that it is permissible to marry off a minor. [8] Hence, this Ayah can never be used to negate Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s marriage at age six.
The writer further says, “Allama Kandhulvi says that the words spoken in connection with Hazrat Aisha’s age were tissa ashara, meaning 19, when Hisham only heard (or remembered), tissa, meaning nine. Maulana Usmani thinks this change was purposely and maliciously made later.”
This is a claim without evidence. There is no reference given for this claim. This statement has no grounding, especially because it contradicts authentic narrations as quoted above.
Continuing with the objections, the writer states, “Historian Ibn Ishaq in his Sirat Rasul Allah has given a list of the people who accepted Islam in the first year of the proclamation of Islam, in which Hazrat Aisha’s name is mentioned as Abu Bakr’s “little daughter Aisha”. If we accept Hisham’s calculations, she was not even born at that time.”
This is a clear misunderstanding by Ibn Ishāq Rahimahullāh especially when it contradicts authentic narrations and other books of Sīrah. And Ibn Ishāq Rahimahullāh did not provide a chain of Hadīth to support his claim.
Another objection by the writer is that in Musnad Ahmad, Khawla Radhiyallāhu Anhā uses the word “Bikrun” to refer to Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā. The writer further claims that the word “Bikrun” which means virgin is only used for unmarried girls who have passed the age of puberty.
One answer to the objection is that “Bikrun” can be used for girls who have not reached puberty also. “Lisān al-Arab” a famous dictionary on the Arabic language has the following meaning for “bikrun”:
البكر: الجارية اللتي لم تفتض(لسان العرب)
A female who has not been deflowered (Lisān al-Arab)
“Mu’jam Lughat al-Fuqahā”, a dictionary on words used by the Jurists defines “bikrun” as:
الفتاة العذراء التي لم تزل بكارتها بوطء (معجم لغة الفقهاء)
One who has not lost her virginity through intercourse (Mu’jam Lughat al-Fuqahā)
From the above-mentioned definitions, it is obvious that the word “Bikrun” is not confined to a mature lady rather includes any female who is virgin whether she has reached puberty or not.
A second and more obvious answer to the objection is that in the same Hadīth, Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age is mentioned to be six.[9] The writer only objected to the word “Bikrun” but failed to mention that later on in the same Hadīth, it is clearly stated that Aishah Radhiyallāh Anhā was six. This clearly indicates that Sahābah also used the word “Bikrun” for any virgin female, regardless of whether she reached puberty or not. Hereunder are the words of this Hadīth:

فَزَوَّجَهَا إِيَّاهُ وَعَائِشَةُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بِنْتُ سِتِّ سِنِينَ (مسند احمد)
Abu Bakr Radhiyallāhu Anhū married Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā off to Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam while she was only six years of age.
(Musnad Ahmad)
The writer further objects stating, “Some scholars think that Hazrat Aisha was married off so early because in Arabia girls mature at an early age. But this was not a common custom of the Arabs atthat time. According to Allama Kandhulvi, there is no such case on record either before or after Islam. Neither has this ever been promoted as a Sunnah of the Prophet. The Prophet married off his daughters Fatima at 21 and Ruquiyya at 23. Besides, Hazrat Abu Bakr, Aisha’s father, married off his eldest daughter Asma at the age of 26.”
This is another baseless and non-academic opinion. It is quite clear from narrations that some marriages at a young age took place in the era of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam, the Sahābah Radhiyallāhu Anhum, and those Muslims that came soon thereafter. For example, Hāfidh bin Hajar Rahimahullāh quotes in his Kitāb “al-Isābah” that Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam got Salmah bin Ibī Salmah Radhiyallāhu Anhu married to Umāmah bint Hamzah Radhiyallāhu Anhā while none of them had reached puberty.[10] Also consider the following narration from Sahīh al-Bukhārī:
وقال الحسن بن صالح: «أدركت جارة لنا جدة، بنت إحدى وعشرين سنة (صحيح البخاري، ج 5، ص 562، دار البشائر الاسلامية)
Hasan bin Sālih Rahimahullāh said: I came to know of my neighbor who became a grandmother at the age of twenty one.
(Sahīh al-Bukhārī)
This indicates that the woman must have been married when she was nine, gave birth when she was ten, and the same situation took place with her daughter.
The writer’s claim about the age of Hadhrat Fātimah and Hadhrat Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhumā at the time of marriage is also inaccurate. Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married Hadhrat Khadījah Radhiyallāhu Anhā at the age of twenty-five. His first daughter born from the marriage was Zainab Radhiyallāhu Anhā.[11] According to most of the Ulamā, Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā is the second daughter of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. [12] And in “al-Isābah”, Hāfidh bin Hajar Rahimahullāh narrates on the authority of Ibn Sa’d Rahimahullāh that Utbah bin Abī Lahab married Hadhrat RuqayyahRadhiyallāhu Anhā before the Nubuwwah. [13] Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam’s age was forty at the time of Nubuwwah. Hence, it is clear that Hadhrat Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā was thirteen years old or younger at the time of her marriage and not twenty three years.
After the Nubuwwah of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam, Abū Lahab ordered his son Utbah bin Abī Lahab to divorce Hadhrat Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā. Thereafter, Uthmān Radhiyallāhu Anhu married Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā.
Even Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s marriage with Uthmān Radhiyallāhu Anhu took place well before she was twenty three years of age. Uthmān Radhiyallāh Anhu and Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā migrated together to Ethiopia in the fifth year after Nubuwwah. [14] This indicates that they were definitely married before the fifth year of Nubuwwah. Hence, Ruqayyah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age at the time of her marriage to Uthmān Radhiyallāhu Anhu was between thirteen and eighteen years old and not twenty three years old.
With regards to Fātimah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age at the time of her marriage to Alī Radhiyallāhu Anhā, there is a difference of opinion because there is a difference of opinion on her year of birth. Some say that she was born when Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was thirty five years of age and others say that she was born right before Nubuwwah when Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was approximately forty years of age.[15] Regarding the year of her marriage, some Ulamā are of the opinion that Alī Radhiyallāh Anhū married her the first year after migration[16] and others say that he married her in the second year after the migration.[17] If we suppose that she was born when Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was approximately forty years of age and was married in the first year after the migration her age at the time of marriage was about thirteen. And if we suppose she was born when Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was thirty five years of age and she was married in the second year after the migration, then she was about eighteen years of age at the time of her marriage and not twenty one years of age as the article suggested.
The writer further objects saying, “Hazrat Aishah narrates that she was present on the battlefield at the Battle of Badar (Muslim). This leads one to conclude that Hazrat Aisha moved into the Prophet’s house in 1 A.H. But a nine-year-old could not have been taken on a rough and risky military mission. In 2 A.H, the Prophet refused to take boys of less than 15 years of age to the battle of Uhud. Would he have allowed a 10-year-old girl to accompany him?”
Once again, this is a mere assumption without clear evidence. It is clear that the prohibition of Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam was for males and not females because the males were the ones to actively participate in the expeditions.[18] The females would only provide services when needed. This objection does not hold any weight especially when there are clear and authentic narrations in Sahīh al-Bukhārī, Sahīh Muslim, and various other books of Hadīth proving the age of Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā to be six at the time of marriage.
Providing another argument, the writer say, “Hazrat Aisha used the kunniat, the title derived from the name of a child, of Umme Abdullah after her nephew and adopted son.
If she was six when her nikah was performed, she would have been only eight years his senior, hardly making him eligible for adoption. Also, a little girl could not have given up on ever having her own child and used an adopted child’s name for her kunniat.”
The kunyah of Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā was given to her by Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. The background of the incident is mentioned in Sunan Abī Dāwūd. The narration is as follows:
عن عائشة رضي الله عنها، أنها قالت: يا رسول الله، كل صواحبي لهن كنى، قال: «فاكتني بابنك عبد الله» يعني ابن اختها قال مسدد: عبد الله بن الزبير، قال: فكانت تكنى بأم عبد الله (سنن ابي داؤد، ج 5، ص 441، دار اليسر)
It is reported from Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā that she said, “O’ Rasūlullāh, every one of your wives has a Kunyah.” So Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “Keep your Kunyah according to your son’s name (meaning nephew’s name) Abdullāh. Hence, her Kunyah became Umm Abdillāh.
(Sunan Abī Dāwūd)ِ
This proves that the Kunyah was given to Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā after she started to reside with Rasūllullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. Hence, she was at least nine years old if not older when she was given this Kunyah and not six years old as the writer has suggested.
Furthermore, the writer did not provide any reference for the adoption of Abdullāh bin Zubair Radhiyallāh Anhū. The mere fact that Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhu’s kunyah was attributed to his name does not necessitate that she had adopted him. Also, the writer suggested that the kunyah was given to Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā because she gave up on having a child. However, from the Hadīth of Sunan Abī Dāwūd, it is clear that the reason why Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā was given the kunyah was because she expressed her desire to have a kunyah, as the other wives of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam had one.
Making another objection, the author writes, “Hazrat Aisha’s nephew Urwah once remarked that he was not surprised about her amazing knowledge of Islamic law, poetry and history because she was the wife of the Prophet and the daughter of Abu Bakr. If she was eight when her father migrated, when did she learn poetry and history from him?”
Again there is no reference whether this saying of Urwah Radhiyallāhu Anhu is authentic or not. However, even if we accept this to really be Urwah’s statement, it is normal for young children to learn very quickly. Even these days we see small children learning very complicated information. In fact, so many children before the age of eight memorize the entire Qurān. And it is well known that children in the past had memories far greater than the memories of children in today’s times.
And even if Abu Bakr Radhiyallāhu Anhu migrated to Medinah Munawwarah when Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā was only eight, she also migrated to Medinah. Just because she was staying with Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam in Medinah does not necessitate that she stopped learning from her father.
In the final objection, the author writes, “There is consensus that Hazrat Aisha was 10 years younger than her elder sister Asma, whose age at the time of the hijrah, or migration to Madina, was about 28. It can be concluded that Hazrat Aisha was about 18 years old at migration.”
The writer’s claim of consensus here is incorrect and the writer does not even provide reference for the claim. In the book “Usd al-Ghābah”, Allāmah Jazrī Rahimahullāh quotes Abū Na’īm saying that Asmā Radhiyallāhu Anhā was born twenty seven years prior to migration. And in “al-Isābah”, Hāfidh bin al-Hajar Rahimahullāh says that Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā was born four or five years after the Nubuwwah of Nabī Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. This proves that Asmā Radhiyallāhu Anhā was eighteen or nineteen years older than Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā and not ten years older as was claimed by the writer. Hence Aishah Radhiyallāh Anhā’s age at the time of migration was eight or nine years of age and not eighteen.
In conclusion, for information to be valid and authentic, it must be passed down from generation to generation through a valid chain of narrators. Hence, there is an authentic chain in Sahīh al-Bukhārī and other books of Hadīth that prove Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā’s age to be six at the time of marriage. So any claim made against this through certain historical arguments holds no weight, especially when it is not supported by an authentic chain.
Allāh will preserve His Dīn and the respect of our beloved Rasūl Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam with the fact that Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam married our Mother Hadhrat Aishah Radhiyallāhu Anhā at the age of six and started living with her when she was nine years old. Let us preserve the facts and let Allāh preserve His Dīn.
