8-Year-Old Yemeni Child Dies at Hands of 40-Year-Old Husband on Wedding Night

 on Saturday, 27 February 2016  

An eight year-old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband, who was five times her age.
Al Nahar, Lebanon, reported that the death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. This brings even more attention to the already existing issue of forced child marriages in the Middle East.
child marriages in mioddle east

"According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides. Furthermore, of the 140 million girls who will marry before the age of 18, 50 million will be under the age of 15."
It is reported that over a quarter of Yemen's young girls are married before the age of 15Not only do they lose access to health and education, these child brides are commonly subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence in their forced marriages.
One of the main issues is that there is currently no consistent established definition of a "child" that has been agreed upon worldwide.  This leaves various interpretations within countries and little protection for those who are affected. 
Establishing this age limit is among the top priorities of groups like HRC which was responsible for publishing the 54-page report “How Come You Allow Little Girls to Get Married?”, documenting the lifelong damage to girls who are forced to marry at young ages.  Most pro age-limit organizations agree that 18 should be the legal age for marriage.
In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic.

  1. The article makes a point of mentioning that the man was five times the child's age. The child was 8. It does not matter if he was 18. An 8-year old child's body is not ready for sex. The real problem is with poverty, education, and culture. While this is horrible and tragic, Americans have a front-runner for the presidential office that espouses racism and exclusion. How is this any different? One culture is raping and murdering young girls while the other is attempting to enslave (murder, rape, assault, imprison) entire ethnic populations and placing America at risk of retaliation by the entire free world.

    1. Poverty, education, and culture certainly play a part, but it's Islam that perpetuates child brides in an age of world-wide information and technology. An age limit is un-Islamic, as it would imply that Muhammad was wrong when he took his own child bride, and those laws will be incredibly difficult to implement as long as theocracies reign.

      While I'm by no means a Trump supporter, you're comparing apples to oranges by citing that they're both edible, so they're the same. The greater issue here is the importance of secular governance (which, coincidentally, is where I vehemently disagree with Trump's own religious pandering).

    2. Unknown, don't get too exited on false story to defame Islam. Like you Islam bashing people generate stories time to time to attack Islam. But you know what the fast religion in world and West us Islam. If it was so bad then you wouldn't have seen so many westerner converting to Islam. For your info, the youngest wife of the prophet was 21 years old. Yes Islam set the conditions for marriage for both men and women. That's is they have to be adults and consent for marriage.

    5. Bullshit.
      1. From the article: "In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic." So yes Islam IS the problem.
      2. Some non-Muslims do convert to Islam and are allowed to do so without sanction. Why, if Islam is wonderful, is there punishment up to and including death, for Muslims who want to leave the religion.
      3. Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

      — Sahih al-Bukhari, 7:62:64

      So bullshit on that too. He DID marry and rape children. Nothing you say is grounded in fact.. Nice try though.

    8. You shouldn't defend Islam, it is a barbaric religion. All the Abrahamic religions are barbaric and disgusting. If you want believe it fine, but instead of defending Islam, Muslims, Christians, atheists and everyone together should come together and focus more on defending Muslim people against bigotry. Also, in defending 8 year old girls who are raped by 40 year old men. A situation that would be far less common if so many Muslim and Christian men weren't sexually repressed because of the shameful teachings of barbaric religion.

    10. Do you think you could possibly cite even a semi-reliable source when you dispute documented fact? I gave you haddith that says Alisha was 6 when married and 9 when raped by Muhammed. I cited the article saying that "conservative" (meaning middler ages loving) Muslims killing a requirement in Yemen that girls be 17 when married. You do not respond to my and others pointing out that leaving the Islamic faith is apostacy deserving of death. Can you actually state any cited fact other than "some say...". Didn't think so. Go ahead and be an apologist for a backward religion and culture.

  4. @Mohammed uddin: What is this fastest religion bs? Fastest growing religion by having 10 kids per family then yes. In Muslim countries they don't even allow other religions to propagate in comparison in the West, Islam can propagate openly...how is that FAIR?? Afraid of little competition? OH and BTW, Muhammad had intercourse with a 9 yr old. Also read somewhere that He had sexual infatuation for his son's wife. NOt 100% sure on that.

    1. First of all, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world in the west, according to the latest statistics. Your theory that "having 10 kids per family" is just as backward as your logic. Secondly, you accused Islam for a law that is passed only in Saudi Arabia. It is only in Saudi that other religions aren't allowed to propagate. The Quran, however, disagrees. As a student of comparative religion, I can assure you that there isn't a religion better than Islam. Observe any religious debate in the world, and you will see how Islam always wins. Thirdly, the westerner seems to have trouble with the marriage of the Prophet and Aisha. You have to understand that it was a different time, where these kinds of marriages were common. It was not a sexual relationship until Aisha was ready. In Islam, as well as in biology, as soon as a woman menstruates she is ready to bare children. This is weird in the 21st century because people have changed. To address any doubts about whether Aisha was molested or not; who did she later on become? One of the most learned people to have ever existed. People who were previously abused become depressed, anguished and suicidal. They don't excel as much as she did, preaching the same message her husband preached. If she was abused like you claim, she wouldn't have followed and implemented the life the prophet lived even after his death. Fourthly, you claimed Muhammad had sexual infatuation for his son's wife. That's bullshit!

    2. Why is your religion necessary at all considering there is no god and you people argue and kill each other over nothing. l

    3. Some very bad logic and a whole lot of false assumptions going on here. There is such thing as religious debate. 1. You cannot argue meaningfully about fiction. 2. Some people who where abused do go on to excel and be highly functional. 3.how can you compare one fairy tail with another and determine which is best to live by. religion at best is opinion. none of us care about the historical and cultural practices around abuse. NOW in 2016 doing anything sexual with a child is child abuse and pedophilia. NO one can possibly say that's O.K.

  6. I can't allow this untruth to be posted without challenge, because it's completely untrue.

    1..Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

    — Sahih al-Bukhari, 7:62:64

    So 21? Nope.

    2. "In February 2009, a law was created in Yemen that set the minimum age for marriage at 17. Unfortunately, it was repealed after more conservative lawmakers called it un-Islamic." So Gee, it looks like Islam DOES require that children marry and be raped by their husbands as young as the deviant husband and family wish.
    3. Yes, some non-Muslims do convert. However, they face no punishment for doing so, whereas Muslims who wish to leave the faith face punishment up to and including death.
    If you want to be an apologist for this disgusting practice, at least try to be in contact with the truth before you twist it.

  8. What a cruel thing! But if this website wants to let his readers judge by themselves about that and if this website would like to appear professional and not like a gossip machine, please don't use these pictures that are obviously NOT REAL. A bride in Yemen would never EVER EVER were allowed to use a sleaveless wedding dress! Don't fool the people and make emotional "journalism". That's just covered up hate speech.

    This story is from 2 and a half years ago (September 2013). It feels like this website is trying to pass it off as a recent event. And btw the picture in the link i've provided is the same as the 1 in this article and is annotated with "Photo for illustrative purposes". In other words the picture in this article does not show the girl involved. I'm also not convinced that the man pictured in this story is the man talked about in this article because the man in this picture looks far older than 40 and he isn't shown in any of the earlier sources and isn't named anywhere.

Islam is already defamed by the men like this, traditions like this, sharia law and the people like you who are only their to defend whenever someone say bad about Islam. Just disgusted.

  13. Muhammed was a delusional psychopath child rapist. Islam is his perverse legacy. Islam has a serious peadophile problem which dwarfs the Cathloic church. Islam rewards degeneracy and punishes intellectual honesty. The only reason it grows is because the people in it will be executed if they leave it. Imagine if Jews actually followed their scripture and stoned rape victims. They don't because they live in modern times. Islam is still rooted in the seventh century and those apologizing for it are part of the problem.

  14. And Saudi-Arabia sits on the UN Council For Human Rights. Fascinating that they are doing nothing about this tragic violation of human rights and systematically kill them yet, they made it clear from day one that gays have no rights and seems far more obsessed with two grown men having sex than a child being raped and murdered. They have no freedom of speech as they also murder Atheists. They have no protection for women as they freely stone them to death, even when raped.They have slave labor and freely kill them too. How is it they have a seat on the council at all, if they can't seem to protect anyone's rights, except those of sociopathic men?

  17. Muslim people are always trying to justify any violence to which against beings or nature, by demonstrating all things were created by Alla and as he has rights to either do so or giving instruction to do so. this is the religions which is stuck still in 7th century.

    I saw one of guy, had put him ideas in proudly;

    01 Islam is the religion which is growing rapidly.
    02 Islam teaching is not subject to debating.

    How funny points which are? root off the rules established on your people For a few moment, how many people will leave your religion. women on your community just like a dole whom are using for entertain your male's sexual requirements and others.....

  22. Islam is growing in West is a joke. It's population increased in the west because the Christian Europe giving refuge to muslim syrian refugees and the middle east haven't given refuge to its brothers. People can't leave Islam or criticize coz they will face death. Eg. Abdul rahman case of Afghanistan was given death sentence for converting to Christianity then was given assylum in Europe and raif badawi who is jailed. Same like that many cases are there were people are punished and killed. So it is surviving coz of these factors due to its fear of competition. It's a usual joke heard that Islam is growing and not to forget another factor is multiplication lol...

  26. Anyone- ANYONE would would allow a man (?) to marry a child of 8 is just as sick and perverted as the so called man. Pedophiles come in all walks of life and in every community but Islam seems to be a religion that actively encourages and condones the raping of children. My heart bleeds for this precious girl and I can only imagine the horror and torture she was forced to endure! Instead of us focussing on religions, let us put our energies into creating change where children are permitted to be children.

  28. What? Mohammed Uddin, Can you try to write in proper english once in your life? english is not my first language but mine is way better than yours.

    First argument is accurate: education and poverty play a huge role in the muslim society, althought for centuries african and muslim countries have had the lowest IQ registered in the world so it´s no surprise, even with decent education your fanatism and bad behavior wouldn´t go away, it has happened before when muslims with college degrees commit terrorist attacks, the muslim society is one where you risk your life if choosing a religion other than islam, that alone should serve as an example to show us all how "tolerant" and "peaceful" islam trully is.

    That without mentioning the fact that islam owns the monopoly of terror around the world, there´s literally no other religion or death cult (like islam) that does suicide bombings, stabbing, beheading, raping in the name of their god or prophet or similar acts on a daily, only islam. Any religious arguments are irrelevant, reality and truth are the only two things that one needs to understand that islam has no place in the 21st century and should be erradicated along with those who want to keep it alive.
