Eleven-Year-Old Nada Al-Ahdal Flees Home to Avoid Forced Marriage in Yemen

Nada al-Ahdal
The Qur'an allows Muslim men to marry and have sex with prepubescent girls. Indeed, Muhammad himself had sex with Aisha when she was only nine years old. Yet whenever Westerners condemn Muhammad's teachings, we're called "racists," "bigots," "hate-mongers," and "Islamophobes." Fortunately, even Muslims are recognizing the devastating impact of Islamic law (though they often don't even know that Islam is the source of the problem).

Recently, an 11-year-old Muslim girl named Nada Al-Ahdal ran away from home to avoid a forced marriage. Her own mother threatened to kill her (an "honor killing") if she refused to marry a much older man. We can all be thankful that Nada's uncle has chosen to live a far better life than his religion commands him to live. He is not only protecting Nada, but allowing her to expose an evil practice in Yemen.

I wrote an article on this and also included a photo from a NatGeo magazine section that talked about forced child marriages. If you see the photo you will be shocked, grown men pictured standing as husbands with 11, 12, 13 year old girls.

Are you serious? said...

Dear author. I assume you know very little about the religion and the only reason you write blogs is to spray your hate in a manner that only persuade those who aren't fully capable of using their brains.

I'll agree with you that I am infuriated to hear such news. I don't think anyone would agree with such shameful thing.

However..

First off, I would like you to source your crap before making it up in regards to the prophet's (PBUH) marriage to Aisha when she was 9. I assume you were a witness that day or was peaking at them while having sex. maybe you can elaborate?

Secondly, are you best friends with her uncle to know that he doesn't practice Islam? Maybe you had coffee with him one afternoon and he told you "Yeah, forget Islam, I prefer to be an anti-islamist because that's what drove me to do the right thing for my niece".

Thirdly, I am a muslim and I wouldn't want to use your same methods against you. Instead, I'll just pray for your sake that you start using your head in a better way than just spreading hate between religions.

Peace out

Guys muhammed the prophet of islam married Aisha when she was 6 years old. He muhammad is the best example to follow. So, what are you expecting from his followers? By the way she is older by 5 years comparing to Aisha. That means she ' d have been married 5 years ago. This is the religion people like pr. Osama BUFFOON Abdullah want the west to adopt as religion of peace. Waaoo. Bravo pr. Osama BUFFOON Abdullah. Bravo N times to Allah.
Abdullah come clean if you do not respond that means you agreed with your prophet. Therefore you must not reject any proposition from a muslim who may like to marry your daughter at this age please.
Thanks guys

Are You Serious,

(1) I guess you didn't bother to click on the link, which goes directly to dozens of Islamic sources saying that Aisha was nine when Muhammad had sex with her. Are you saying that all of Islam's most trusted sources on the life of Muhammad are wrong? Here's my own article on this topic, BTW:

http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Wood/pedophile.htm

(2) I didn't say that her uncle isn't a Muslim. I said that he has chosen to live a better life than Islam commands. I would say the same about most Muslims. Islam commands Muslims to violently subjugate non-Muslims, to beat women into submission, etc. So when Muslims live better lives than this, I praise them.

(3) You won't use the same method against me? What method is that? Quoting my earliest sources to show me what Christianity teaches? But that's exactly the method you should use!

Wow, what an articulate young child. This young girl knows what she wants in life. May the LORD help her to escape the barbarism that is Islam.

taomeano said...

"Are your serious" listen, we have no issues with muslims who choose not to carry out the barbaric doctrine of Islam. Moslems are not the problem, Islam is. When people remind you of what your Islamic doctrine teaches they are not spreading hate. If your Islamic doctrine is that shameful then by all means get out of Islam. People like you are paranoid to find out the truth about the cult of Islam. Islam is a cult pure and simple and you are caught in it. It is my prayer that one day you will see the light and get out before it is too late for your soul.

how is it that every time someone quotes the quran/hadeeths/tafsir to expose the teachings of islam, MUSLIMS make the claim that person is preaching hate...Are the muslims really that blind. 'are you serious' its really simple, the quran say that a man can marry a prepubescent girl, your prophet consummated his marriage to a 9 year old when he was in his 50's. and now they want to say David is preaching hate for highlighting the truth. the real problem is that even though your God given conscious lets you know that islam is wrong, you chose to supress the truth for a lie.

Foolster41 said...

Funny, "are you serious?"'s name is exactly how people want to respond to him. Well chosen name, sir.

Are you serious?

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, American Senator, famously noted: “You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”

The same goes for Islam. The facts have been documented. The hope is Muslims like you (if you even dared to come back on this site, chances are you only got a blogger id so post a comment and then run away like the coward your prophet was)will stop and consider these facts and evaluate Islam objectively.

If you won't someone else will but that doesn't make the facts any less true, just more fearful.

This was the innocence that was stolen by mohammed and is still been perpetrated by his followers up till this day. Mohammed and his allah have really held many moslems in zombie like state for too long. It is time for massive exposition of the evil sprit behind islam. Watching this should make all moslems question the origin of their religion.

bam bamba said...

David, through your blog and many others like it, islam is unravelling as we speak! Glory be to God.

southwood said...

That wee lassie will go far. I hope it's far away from Yemen too. She is much too intelligent to be held back by that kind of society.

rivan said...

she is such a beautiful child.She was surprisingly articulate too. Wanna give her a hug. I thought about aisha through this child and I was even more amazed and at the same time cringing. For a man to take away such pure innocence.God my God you are so patient with us for the wrath is stored for ppl who corrupt your best creation.

Bruce said...

This girl is one of the worst things for Islam. She's beautiful enough to attract attention, and smart enough and passionate enough to expose the evil of Islam, completely flying in the fact of Muhammad saying women are "deficient in intelligence".

Rukiah Ali said...

that dose not always happen so u people are saying islam is not the right way?

Rukiah Ali said...

you guys are evil. You want to destroy a religon because you don't like it ,theres good in islam, theres even evil in christans, you think christans are so innocent.Yet I got cursed out by a christan by no apparent reason. Of corse you don't see good in islam. Thats because you see evil in everything. You speak evil you hear evil, you even see evil.
