Where did he get that idea? Why, Muhammad, who is the supreme example of conduct for Muslims (Qur’an 33:21):
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).” — Sahih (“sound,” “reliable”) Bukhari 7.62.88.
Despite apologists’ various tap dances around the subject, from claiming that Aisha was much older, didn’t know how old she was, or perhaps was “nine” in Galapagos tortoise years (well, we haven’t seen that one yet), Muslims across the world continue to believe this account, accept it, and act accordingly. For calling attention to it and to the untold numbers of girls victimized by it, we’re branded as “Islamophobes.” “Outcry in The Hague over “˜pedo imam”,” from Radio Netherlands Worldwide, December 6:
Labour Party MP Ahmed Marcouch wants to bar imam Mohamed al-Maghraoui from entering the Netherlands.
The controversial Moroccan imam has been invited to attend a conference in the As Sunnah mosque in The Hague.
Al Maghraoui caused an uproar in Morocco in 2008 when he issued a fatwa approving a marriage with a nine-year-old girl. The fatwa has since been nullified by the Moroccan religious authorities and the controversial imam fled to Saudi Arabia to avoid prosecution. He reportedly repeated his fatwa when he returned to Morocco in 2011.
Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders has also said the imam should not be allowed to visit the Netherlands.
The As Sunnah mosque has repeatedly been the subject of controversy. Earlier, the Salafist As Sunnah Imam Sheikh Fawaz Jneid called on his followers not to integrate into Dutch society.
Don’t let the door hit ya where Allah subhanahu wa-ta’ala split ya.
The mosque has declined to comment on the planned visit by the controversial Moroccan imam.
