Pedophilia and Bestiality In Islam
By Jennifer King
Pedophilia is legal in Islam.
The law ordering pedophilia is in chapter 65, entitled
‘The Divorce’ and qualified by Islamic law, which is based on the sunnah,
the ‘perfect example’ of Muhammad recorded in the hadiths, traditions. The
context deals with the issue of the waiting period for divorce, and remarriage.
The Quran orders Muslim men to wait a period of three months in the case of
women who either are no longer menstruating or haven’t yet started their
(4. Those in menopause among your women, for them the `Iddah, if you have
doubt, is three months; AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NO MENSTRUATION. And for those
who are pregnant, their `Iddah is until they lay down their burden; and
whosoever has Taqwa of Allah, He will make his matter easy for him.)
(5. That is the command of Allah, which He has sent down to
you; and whosoever has Taqwa [fear] of Allah, He will expiate from him his sins,
and will increase his reward.) Qur’an chapter 65:4
Islamic law is based on the rules of the Qur’an and the
sunnah, the ‘perfect example’ of Muhammad, the Muslim prophet, recorded in
the hadiths, traditions. All Muslims are ordered to imitate Muhammad’s
‘perfect example’ in thought, word and deed. They are ordered to regard
Muhammad as the ideal human being and Islam as the best system for humanity
forever, a system that Islamic law orders must rule the world and abolish all
other religions, cultures and laws.
The definition of the word consummate: In Sahih Bukhari,
vol. 7, #64, the root word used is dakhala. Hans-Wehr Arabic-English Dictionary
p273: it means ‘to enter, to pierce, to penetrate, to consummate, cohabit, to
have sex with a female’.
PEDOPHILIA LAWS FROM ISLAM Q&A
Question #22442: The ruling on marrying young girls
Question #12708: Is it acceptable to marry a girl who has
not yet started her menses?
to a young girl before she reaches puberty is permissible according to
sharee’ah, and it was narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this
1 – Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah
(prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months;
and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah
(prescribed period) is three months likewise” [al-Talaaq
In this verse we see that Allaah states that for those who
do not menstruate – because they are young and have not yet reached the age of
puberty – the ‘iddah in the case of divorce is three months. This clearly
indicates that it is permissible for a young girl who has not started her
periods to marry.
Question #27305: Is it permissible to marry a thirteen year
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
married ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) when she was six years
old, and he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine, and at that
time he was over fifty.
Al-Bukhaari (3894) and Muslim (1422) narrated that
‘Aa’ishah said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)
married me when I was six years old and consummated the marriage with me when I
It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased
with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married
her when she was six years old, he consummated the marriage with her when she
was nine and she stayed with him for nine years.
If she has not reached the age of puberty, then her father
has the sole right to arrange her marriage and does not have to ask her
permission. With regard to the wedding-party of a young married girl at the time
of consummating the marriage, if the husband and the guardian of the girl agree
upon something that will not cause harm to the young girl, then that may be
done. If they disagree, then Ahmad and Abu ‘Ubayd say that once a girl reaches
the age of nine then the marriage may be consummated even without her consent,
but that does not apply in the case of who is younger.There is nothing in the
hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah to set an age limit or to forbid that in the case of a
girl who is able for it before the age of nine.
Question #8981: What is the punishment for a girl found
guilty of adultery if she has not even reached her puberty - she is still a
Answer: Al-Qurtubi said: The followers of all religions are
agreed that adultery is forbidden; no religion regards it as permissible. Hence
the punishment for it is one of the most severe punishments, because it is a
crime against honour and lineage, which is one of the five basic principles that
Islam seeks to protect, namely life, religion, lineage, reason and wealth.
Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 24/20, 21
1 – If a woman has been previously married i.e., a
legitimate marriage with her has been consummated, then her punishment is to be
stoned to death.
2 – If the woman is a virgin i.e., she is not married yet
or the marriage contract has been done but her husband has not yet consummated
the marriage with her – then the punishment is one hundred lashes and exile
from her country for a year. If the adulterer or adulteress is a minor below the
age of puberty, then there is no punishment to be carried out, according to all
