What is the status of women in Islam?
Picture this: She is 9 years old and unfortunately got her first period, a totally natural thing to happen in which she herself had no say. But now, she is eligible for marriage and since Abba thinks she should be married off, she is. Her husband’s age is irrelevant. He could be anywhere from 15 to 95 or even more. Since she is old enough for marriage, she is obviously old enough for motherhood. Yes, by age 10 she’s already a mother, a child responsible for taking care of another child.
