Dear Dr. Sahib,

Our captain Dr. Irfan wants to know as well. Here is what Dr. Irfan wrote:

Br. Mubashir Sahib,

Did you notice another gem from the PH.D and Associate Professor? I wonder what "Ph.D" means that is appended after name. It may be something we don't know. The following moronic statement he made in his post from a real Ph.D:

He first says that the Ayesha, the Mother of Believers' marriage related ahadith are not from the Prophet. So implicitly he admitted that these ahadith are NOT reliable (contrary to most Ulema). But the he turns his on what he just said and says the following:

""Child marriages are permitted in Islam but the marriage becomes a real marriage only when the girl grows up and accepts the marriage as a mature adult. Ayesha, r.a., as an adult was given the option to choose or reject the Prophet, pbuh. See Sura Ahzab. She chose him and expressed great love for him."""

I am not aware of any ayah in the Sura Ahzab where Ayesha was given an option to reject or accept the “marriage” with the prophet. Can the person who insults the degree “Ph.D” every day post that ayah? He did not bother to give the reference.

Also, please ask him: Why would a father marry his 6-year old daughter to an old man (or any other man) in the first place---especially when three years later he has to give an option to the girl of accepting or rejecting the husband? Many a time even before that choice, the old beast gobbles up the child before the infamous “choice” is given to her because the old man can’t wait to eat up the poor victim. This happens quite often in Yemen where a kangaroo court finally decides in the girl’s favor when the Human Rights Watch groups cry out to make the beast’s crime known in the press. Why on earth a father would do that unless he is really cruel, blind-follower of wrong teachings, or simply stupid. Why can't he wait till his daughter get to be adult and then let her decide (or make suggestion to her). Most people who do that in Afghanistan, NWFP or Yemen do that because the father need money. The father sells the child to the rich, old, stinky sweaty predator! Isn't that true? I have yet to see another reason for this horrible crime that is sadly sanctioned by yet many other criminals like "Dr." Kaukab Siddique and “Shaikhs” like Bin Baz. I really believe that those who even speak in favor of it should be sent to boob hatch because they are sick!
