Subject: [zamanku] Umur 10 halal dikawinin
Date: Wednesday, January 14, 2009, 4:42 PM
Mnrt ulama tertinggi di Saudi Arabia, bocah perempuan cilik umur 10 th sudah
pantas kawin. Orang yg melarang nya memperlakukan si imut2 itu dg tidak adil!
Tentunya kesemuanya ini krn manusia sempurna, teladan bagi semua umat Islam
melakukan perkawinan dg bocah imut2 Aisha ketika dia umur 9 taon. Di zaman itu
tentunya blon ada studi ttg dampak buruk dari prebuscent marriages. Sekarang di
mana manausia sudah lebih mengenal hal2 yg tidak baik sbg akibat perkawwinan
anak2 - akibat psychological dan bahkan physical, makanya amasyarakat beradab
Kasihan juga si imut2 di negara tsb. - cilakanya lagi mereka ini sering menjadi
korban perkawinan dg orang2 gaek tapi berduit. Bayangin anak seumur SD kelas 2
ditidurin sma engkong, embah, kakek umur di atas 50 th! Coba renungkan sejenak,
setujukah anda kalo anak perempuan, adik perempuan, kemenakan anda yg seumur
itu digaulin sama kakek2?!

Saudi Arabia's most senior cleric was quoted on Wednesday as saying it is
permissible for 10-year-old girls to marry and those who think they're too
young are doing the girls an injustice.
Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh, the country's grand mufti, said during a lecture on
Monday that those who say women should not marry before the age of 25 are
following a "bad path," according to the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper.
Al Sheikh's comments come at a time when Saudi human rights groups have been
pushing the government to put an end to marriages involving the very young and
to define a minimum age for marriage. In the past few months, Saudi newspapers
have highlighted several cases in which young girls were married off to much
older men or very young boys.
On Sunday, the government-run Human Rights Commission condemned marriages of
minor girls, saying such marriages are an "inhumane violation" and rob children
of their rights.
The commission's statement followed a ruling by a court in Oneiza in central
Saudi Arabia last month that dismissed a divorce petition by the mother of an
eight-year-old girl whose father married her off to a man in his 50s.
Newspaper reports said the court argued that the mother did not have the right
to file such a case on behalf of her daughter and said that the petition should
be filed by the girl when she reaches puberty.
Responding to a question about parents who force their underage daughters to
marry, the mufti said: "We hear a lot about the marriage of underage girls in
the media, and we should know that Islamic law has not brought injustice to
"For it to be said that it's not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and
younger is wrong," Al Sheikh was quoted as saying. "A female who is 10 or 12 is
marriageable and those who think she's too young are wrong and are being unfair
The mufti said a good upbringing will make a girl capable of carrying out her
duties as a wife.
"Our mothers and before them our grandmothers married when they were barely
12," said Al Sheikh, according to Al-Hayat.
There are no statistics to show how many marriages involving children are
performed in Saudi Arabia every year. And it's also not clear whether these
unions are on the rise or whether people are hearing about them more now
because of the prevalence of media outlets and easy access to the internet.
Activists say the girls are given away in return for hefty dowries or as a
result of long-standing custom in which a father promises his infant daughters
and sons to cousins out of a belief that marriage will protect them from
