Following the controversy that has been raised for legalising child marriage, many finding a whole lot of fault in this and many ready to fight...Well Senetor Ahmed Sani Yariman Bakura wants you to read this
Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and its not your business. This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind, Muhammad ﺻَﻠَّﻰ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻪِ ﻭَﺳَﻠَّﻢَ .
Continue reading...In Islam, marriage is not only about sex, it is about family and helping one another in achieving their goals, which is the attainment of Paradise. In Islam, a girl can be given out in marriage as early as 6 years old, but consummation of the marriage can only be done when the girl becomes physically mature and she gives her consent to it because unlike English law, it is not permissible for a man to rape his wife in Shari'ah Law.
So what can anybody tell me? ~ I live in a city where young girls at the age of 12 have already become serial fornicators and cannot count the number of men they've had sex with. ~ I live in a City where primary school children disvirgin themselves behind toilets on Valentine day. ~ I live in a city where young girls flood the street at night looking for men that would give them N500 to have sex with them. ~ I live in a city where parents send their daughters out overseas to prostitute and send dollars down. ~ I live in a City where Government officials pick undergraduates from University car parks with Coastal Buses to wild sex parties. ~ I live in a city where abortion is so common that even a Chemist store owner can perform abortion with just N2,500.
These are your daughters, and this should worry you and not Yerima's private matters. So ask me again why I support early marriage and I will slap the Jinni out of your head''.So many of you may be surprised I'm saying this but I don't think the #ChildNotBride campaign/protest is necessary... I saw some people tweeting and putting up photos with captions like "Give a child education not ejaculation" and "Give a child pen not penis" This is arrant nonsense! Very cheap rhymes. I don't think any sane man will marry a 9 year old girl to have sex with her so she will bear children for him, manage his home and cook for him... I gave an instance what if in a case where a man needs to marry someone to secure a family relationship with another family so he can be able to will some of his properties to her and her family, there are so many instances that can make one marry a child. This thing has been in existence for so many years infact I didn't know it was illegal before. Why are people making noise and trying to bring down heaven? In most cases when they the small girl is married, they will stay with their parents till they are of age... and besides there is a word like "divorce" in the dictionary that is if the girl in question is not interested in the marriage when she grows up!. Her parents should be wise enough to decide if they want to give out there daughter or not! if they decide to for some kind of reason its non of our damn business! Ah ah! this noise is totally uncalled for please...
