About: A detailed and honest look from the perspective of classical Islam. This tackles the issue of 'engagement', where basically it is allowed for me to engage my child for marriage to another child when they are still too young to make up their own mind. Islamicly, such an arrangement cannot be consummated, according to the ijma of the scholars, until both parties are mature and agree to consummate. But what if by then the girl in particular is not happy with the arrangement? The man can just divorce, but is the woman not unfairly restricted by having to go to a judge or having a pre-nuptial? What if her father or guardian just married her off for nefarious reasons? Is she forced to have sex with her husband? All this is explained honestly and without deception or sophistry.
