Child Brides


Assalam alaikum,

What does Islam/the Shariah say about men having “child brides,” say age 6 or 7 and the girl has not reached puberty?

Thank you


Wa `Alaykum Salam,

No, Islam allows consummation of marriage only as long as the girl has reached her pubescent stage, after she has begun her menstruation.
