8-year-old has died on her wedding night after marrying 40-year-old Muslim man



An eight-year-old Yemeni girl has died of internal bleeding on her wedding night after marrying a man five times her age.

The girl, identified only as Rawan, was married to a 40-year-old man in the town of Meedi in Hajjah province in northwestern Yemen.
This shocking incident occurred in 2013, but similar incidents occur every day in the Muslim world.

An estimated 12 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence.

Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.

Here is a proof quote from the Islamic scriptures (Hadiths) that Muslims consider authentic record that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:

“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)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).
