A hard-line Wahhabi cleric in Saudi Arabia has recently issued a special religious decree that permits the militants in Syria to engage in short-term marriages with Syrian women.

from jihadwatch:

"... the marriages, dubbed by him as 'intercourse marriages,' can be with Syrian females as young as 14 years old.

"He also promised 'paradise' for those who marry the militants."

So muslima "camp followers" get a reward too?

That was a lie. Sheik Mohammad al arifi has already denied saying such things.
Someone was writing under his name on twitter and using his photo. the lie is ridiculous and can only be made by an unclever person who knows little about Islam.
Imams are not like the church. They cannot approve things based on what they see. Their words are not above the words of prophet Mohammad.
Temporary marriages are forbidden for ever by prophet Mohammad peace be upon him.

It's the same thing.
Obviously a "fee" has changed hands.
Islam, a sham, a money grab, a system for the rich and privilaged.

I think this is one of the things the shia do that makes the sunnis angry and want to kill them.

I don't like the muslims' idea of the "real" Jesus, an insignificant fellow who never said or did much of anything and was replaced at the crucifixion. So does this give me a license to kill muslims?

They follow a lecherous bandit instead. Hail robber, full of lust.

It is a lie, and Al-Uraifi denied it himself saying that not even a mad man not a Muslim scholar can say such a thing.

You're the hateful one, Scent.

Joe would not post this if he knew it was a lie.

Seems your own Muslim brothers are the ones spreading this news, if it is false. A link to the cleric's denial would be helpful instead of wrongfully accusing Joe of being a liar. But that's not like you...to back up your opinions with anything but hateful bashing.

I did a little looking around and it's not surprising that anyone would actually believe that this twitter post was made by him considering the other ideas he has.

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/saud...

The source for this story is Press TV, an Iranian propaganda outlet, so I wouldn’t usually post it, but Sheikh Mohammed al-Arifi has a history of saying similar enough things so that it’s not completely implausible, though the Sheik has taken to Twitter to deny it.

Sheikh Mohammed al-Arifi has a certain history of liking them young, really young, so I’m surprised that he drew the line at 14.

Islam Does Not Set a Minimum Age for Marriage

In the days of Prophet Muhammad and his companions, people would get married at a younger age. For example, how old was ‘Aisha when the Prophet Muhammad married her? I will give you a hint.

Member of panel of Saudi youth: She was seven years old.

Muhammad Al-’Arifi: And how old was she when he had sex with her?

Member of panel: Fourteen.

Muhammad Al-’Arifi: Fourteen?! No way, she was nine. You are getting married tonight and you still can’t count…

She was nine years old. People might think it is strange that he married such a young girl. But this was the age at which they used to get married. The proof is that when the Prophet told Abu Bakr that he wanted to marry ‘Aisha – what did Abu Bakr say? He said:“You are more than welcome, oh Messenger of Allah, but my daughter is already married.” At seven years old she was already married.

And if your 7-year-old wife misbehaves, Sheik Muhammad Al-’Arifi will tell you the proper Islamic way to beat her.

Scent, do you have a link to your claim about the Sheikh's denial "saying that not even a mad man not a Muslim scholar can say such a thing"?

Is this youtube telling the truth?



A Wahhabi religious cleric in Saudi Arabia, Muhammed al-Arifi, who is very influential in Jihadi circles, has recently issued a fatwa (religious edict) that permits all Jihadist militants in Syria to engage in short-lived marriages with Syrian women that each lasts for a few hours in order to satisfy their sexual desires and boost their determination in killing Syrians. He called the marriage as 'intercourse marriage'. It requires that the Syrian female be at least 14 years old, widowed, or divorced.

Is this the Western-promoted "freedom and democracy" that Syrians want?

In Islam it's ok to deny you said something (after the event, when the message has been conveyed).
This is understood by the audience your message was directed to and any future denial will be ignored as they know it was for Western viewers.

Well, another Muslim cleric promoting and permitting adultery and doing so by deception. This is typical of Muslims and is exactly what Mohammad did. He just made it up as he went along and claimed Allah permitted it all in order to deceive people into believing he was a prophet.

ISLAM IS A SATANIC SEX CULT!

Give it a rest.
In not seeing the truth you are behaving like a Muslim.
When Muslims say something that is subsequently embarassing to them, then they either "deny it happened" or say it was "taken out of context".
You were brought up in the Western tradition of not telling lies; but for a Muslim the opposite is true as lying is second nature
when you live in an oppressive society, where your hand could be cut off for a minor offence etc.

Of course it will show garbage for chinese text, but someday Topix may change the program to display the above text correctly (if they want)...

All 3 translations that I can read says he didn't deny saying "temporary marriage for Syrian fighters"... what is going on here?

Many Muslims emulate their Prophet by becoming pathological liars themselves.
Some even create an entirely new fantasy world that they are the masters of-sound familiar.
