Child marriage in Islam and evil of Ruhollah Khomeini

Courtesy: (Must watch video.)

I mentioned that all knowing god Allah does not prescribe minimum age for marriage for girls or boys. He literally tells that men can marry and divorce girls who are not pubescent (65:04).

Ruhollah Khomeini, father of Islamic revolution in Iran, has infamously said that Muslim men can marry baby girls of few hours and they even can enjoy these babies sexually without penetration until the girl reaches age of 9. Well he even practiced it; Watch this video at

website's admin rightfully observes:

' This sickening story is not about Khomeini. It is about Islam. It is a demonstration of how humans cease to be humans when they believe in evil ideologies.
Khomeini asks a father to let him have temporary “marriage” with his 4 years old daughter and this benighted man consents. The child screams when that beast rapes her and her father does not intervene.
What can reduce a person to such a zombie? Only blind faith! He does not see anything wrong in that because his prophet did the same. Khomeini did not see anything wrong in that either for the same reason.
Doesn’t Islam reduce humans into beasts?
If a Muslim is capable of such cruelty to his own little girl, why he should not murder others if his prophets tells him to? '


Ayatollah Khomeini writes (here): "A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby.  However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable.  If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life.  This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister…  It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home.  Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.

OR one can read from here about his legal observations on women, marriage and Islam:

A Selection from "Resaleh" (Towzih ol Masael) Book of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini:

I. A woman may legally belong to a man in one of two ways; by permanent marriage or temporary marriage (Siqeh). In the former, the duration of the marriage needs not to be specified; in the latter, it must be stipulated, for example, that it is for a period of an hour, a day, a month, a year, or more.

II. A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister.

III. A father or a paternal grandfather has the right to marry off a child who is insane or has not reached puberty by acting as her representative. The child may not annul such a marriage after reaching puberty or regaining her sanity, unless the marriage is to her manifest disadvantage.............
