A Quiz For Muslims

Question: Where else would a 60 year old man be allowed to marry an 8 year old little girl? (NB: The clue is in the piccie).

Answer: In Saudi Arabia,the state in which the holiest of Muslim shrines is situate, of course. After all, it was good enough for Muhammad to marry a little girl, which is no doubt why earlier this year, the country's highest religious authority, the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Shaikh said that it was not against Islamic law to marry off young girls to lecherous old men who pay the children's families large dowries for the undoubted privilege.

But it's OK because it is Insha'Allah!

Despite an attempt by the girl's mother to have the marriage annulled, a court in Unaiza upheld the marriage but the judge said that that once the little girl reached puberty, she could ask for a divorce.

If it wasn't so fucking sick, it would be funny!
