The following are Excerpts are from Imam Yasir qadhi

I will Begin by stating the obvious and that is that there is no question from a legal Islamic perspective such a marriage is not a marriage there is just no room for reinterpretation. There is unanimous consensus that amongst all the scholars that when it comes to nikah a Muslim lady must marry a Muslim man.

We say unequivocally that any person who wants to come in and to change this law, we say no the Quran is explicit and the Sharia has come with what is called ijima or unanimous consensus.

Muslims marrying outside the faith is forbidden

So may Allah protect our families from ever having to face this crisis. It has been troubling my mind since yesterday the state of mind the most her emotional distress she was in the crisis and the trauma… And by the way these are members of our community practicing Muslims.

In this society fear does not work in this society the stick is not going to work

Females Marrying non-Muslims is Committing Adulatory for which the Penalty is Being Stoned to Death

Islam Q & A contextualizes the understanding of killing the female that commits adulatory.

“The fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity (compassion) withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allaah, if you believe in Allaah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment

It was narrated that Buraydah ibn al-Haseeb said: A woman from Ghaamid, a branch of al-Azd, came and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, purify me!” He said, “Woe to you! Go back and seek the forgiveness of Allaah and repent to Him.” She said: “I think that you intend to send me back as you sent Maa’iz ibn Maalik back.” He said, “What has happened to you?” She said that she had become pregnant as a result of zina. He said: “Is it you (who has done that)?”  She said: “Yes.” He said to her: “(You will not be punished) until you give birth to that which is in your womb.” A man from among the Ansaar sponsored her [i.e., paid for her needs etc] until she delivered (the child). Then he (that Ansaari) came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said: “The Ghaamidi woman has given birth to a child.” He (the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) said: “Then we will not stone her and so leave her child with no one to nurse him.” One of the Ansaar stood up and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, let me be responsible for ensuring that he is nursed.” Then she was stoned to death. 

We find ourselves in a culture that is radically different from the culture from where we come.

This is my fatwa of a Muslim man marrying a Christian or a Jewish lady I think it’s not allowed in this land I think it’s only allowed in a Muslim Nation. this is my fatwa based upon my understanding of the Sharia. Ibin Abbas had the same fatwa that the concession for a Muslim man only applies when the society is Muslim. When the society is non-muslim we don’t have this concession. Therefore we have to tell our young men we are not allowing you to marry outside of our faith. This is the fatwa I give… 

Why Are Muslim Females Forbidden to Marry Christians

Children Producing Babies Makes the Muslim Tribe Stronger

Children Producing Babies Makes the Muslim Tribe Stronger

To Young to be Married

Islam Child Bride Pregnancy. Imam Shabbir Ally is president of The International Toronto Dawah Center. Shabbir Ally gave an interview that was uploaded on April 21, 2017. This interview contextualizes the context that places child marriage in a perspective that enables Muslim scholars to assert Islam is a leader of female human rights.


In what ways are Muslim women disadvantaged in the current marriage system from an Islamic lens?

Imam Shabbir Ally:

One of the issues, there in no minimum age prescribed for an allowable Islamic marriage. A boy or a girl could get married very early. For a boy, this may not prove to be much of a problem because he always has the option of divorce. The woman did not have the option of divorce. She could seek a dissolution of her marriage, but that is a long process and it requires taking her case to the Muslim Court, or in a modern context, where Muslims are minorities, taking it to a council of imams. The boy, he can just simply utter the word “divorce” and he is freed from the marriage he does not like.

Child Marriage Can Be a Burden to Females However Advantageous for Males

Islamic Marrying Age

Now we speak often about the consent of a woman in marriage, but that consent does not apply to minor girls. Girl could be married off by her father or her grandfather without her consent.


So this is an Islamic principle?

Imam Shabbir Ally

It is well known and it is classified and codified in Islamic textbooks…. And their great contribution to societies would have been get married, have children. They increase the number of the tribe. The tribe became larger and stronger. So each individual was contributing something to the growth of the tribe. And women in particular, that would have been a great contribution to their tribes by getting married early and having children.

Islamic Marrying Age


Do you still think in light of these brief issues that we talked about, and acknowledging that we will need to have another episode where we talk more about these issues, that Islam still views women in a positive light as we framed our initial discussion?

Imam Shabbir Ally

Well yes. Here, by Islam, I mean in my conception of what Islam is. Involving the Quran as the basic teaching of Islam understood against the backdrop of historical circumstances and now reapplied to a modern and changing situation.

Tafseer al-Tabari, 14/142 

2 – It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah  MABPWH that the Prophet PBUH  married her when she was six years old, and consummated the marriage with her when she was nine, and she stayed with him for nine years. 

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4840; Muslim, 1422. 

Al-Istidhkaar, 16/49-50. 

Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr said: 

The scholars are unanimously agreed that a father may marry off his young daughter without consulting her. The Messenger of Allaah married ‘Aa’ishah bint Abi Bakr when she was young, six or seven years old, when her father married her to him.

Islam Child Bride Pregnancy is Mainstream Islam


Getting married at an early age is something that is confirmed by the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), the consensus of the scholars and the actions of the companions, and the Muslims who came after them

The evidence from the Qur’an is:

1. The saying of Allah: “And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death]”. (At-Talaq 65:4)

The evidence from the Sunnah is: The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) established the marriage contract with Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, when she was 6 years old, and he consummated the marriage with her when she was 9 years of age.

Tonight is their Wedding Night

It is reported in Sahih AlBukhari and Muslim that Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: “The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) established the marriage contract with me when I was 6 years of age and consummated the marriage with me when I was 9 years of age.”

Ibn Qudama said in Al-Mughni: “There is no difference as regards a young girl who is still a virgin“. Ibn Al-Mundhir said: “The reliable people of knowledge agree unanimously that it is permissible for a father to marry off his young and virgin daughter to an eligible man. It is also permissible for him to marry her off despite her reluctance to be married.

Getting married at an early age is something that is confirmed by the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), the consensus of the scholars and the actions of the companions, and the Muslims who came after them
