Submitted by Kazmifer (United States), Oct 11, 2005 at 12:29

Islam allows marriage of prepubescent girls of any age. Khomeini in his writings says one can have sex with babies.In Iran Mullah's say that girls should have their first period in her husband's home. They are influenced by the following quranic aya and their prophet Mohammed'd example who married a six year old girl when he was in his 50's.

065.004 (about waiting period after divorce for remarriage)
SHAKIR: And (as for) those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, if you have a doubt, their prescribed time shall be three months, and of those too who have not had their courses (yet);
Here is a hadith which says Mohammed followed quran by marrying Ayesha at age six.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65:
Narrated 'Aisha:
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. (consummation was postponed for three years at the request of girl's father Abu Bakr)
