Sharia expert on TV says girls should marry off as soon as they learn to walk

Dr. Abd Al-Hamid Al-'Ubeidi, an Iraqi expert on Islamic law, on Al-Rafidein TV says: "There is no minimum marriage age for either men or women in Islamic law. The law in many countries permits girls to marry only from the age of 18. This is arbitrary legislation, not Islamic law. Why? Because there might be cases in which it is impossible to keep the girl [single] until the age of maturity."
Women and girls in the Arab world are often treated as property and sold into forced marriages.
Child marriage is still practiced all over the Arab-Muslim world in countries such as Bangladesh, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
