Lost in Translation
Existence in Lahore

Good Muslims

The Religious Policeman:

Only yesterday in the "Arab News", we were told that "It’s not uncommon to find old men marrying young girls....One extreme case of such a marriage involved a 15-year-old girl being married off to a man more than 100 in Jizan. ..... In another case, a man above 60 married an 11-year-old girl." I wonder what Mum and Dad would have made of that, as their daughters were being dressed up as little child brides?

The man married an 11-year-old girl. No big deal. The Great Prophet of Islam married a 6-year-old girl! Devout Muslim parents should try to match that superb and auspicious example.
