In Yemen, the parliament has set a new minimum age requirement for marriage. That age is 17. This should be seen as a progressive mood to protect the rights of women. Unfortunately, the promoters of Shariah do not see it that way at all.
They are saying that the new age requirement violates Shariah law. They are actually factually correct. Shariah law has no such requirement and this is by design since, Mohammed himself, depending on who you believe, married a 6-year old or a 9-year old.
It is not at all uncommon today for men to take wives in very early years today under Shariah.
This is simply more proof that Shariah is a barbaric system. So, when you have heard that your bank or brokerage firm has decided to embrace Shariah-Compliant Finance, ask them if they believe in promoting pedophilia?
