Thighing – Muslim Scholars

Muslim Scholar

Thighing—or mufakhafat—is a practice followed today in many Muslim communities around the world.

Fatwa on Thighing: Number 41409 dated 7-5-1421 (August 8, 2000)

The permanent committee for scientific research and religious sanctions [in Saudi Arabia] are:

  • Abdel Aziz ben Abdullah ben Mohammed Aal Sheikh, Chairman
  • Bakr ben Abdullah Abu Zeid, Member
  • Saleh ben Fozan Al Fozan, Member

Praise is to God and blessings on the Prophet that is the last of all prophets.

The permanent committee for scientific research and religious sanctions [in Saudi Arabia] has looked onto the request of Abu Abdallah Mohammed Al Shamry which was sent to the committee from the general secretariat of the Committee of Higher Scholars number 1809 date 3/5/1421. The requester asked the following:

  • Lately, it has spread on a large scale, especially in weddings, the habit of thighing little boys; what is the ruling of the Quran on this? Especially, that God’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) has thighed Ayesha (may God be pleased with her).

The committee, after studying the request, has ruled the following:

  • It is not the true guidance of Muslims throughout centuries to resort to the use of these unlawful practices, which were imported to our countries through the immoral videos that are being sent by the infidels and enemies of Islam. As for the thighing of the messenger of God to his fiancée Ayesha, she was six years old and he could not engage in sexual intercourse with her because of her young age, therefore he used to place his penis between her thighs and rub it lightly. In addition, the messenger of God had full control of his penis in contrary to the believers. Therefore, it is not permitted to practice thighing, whether in weddings, or at homes, or schools, due to its grave harm. And may God curse the infidels who brought these practices to our countries. – Faith Freedom, Sept. 23, 2011

Fatwa on Thighing

The Little Green Book by Ayatollah KhomeiniThighing—or mufakhafat—is a practice followed today in many Muslim communities around the world

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, The Supreme Leader of Iran, the Shia Grand Ayatollah, 1979-89 said in his official statements recorded in The Little Green Book (Tahrir al-Wasilah, fourth edition, Qom, Iran, 1990):

• A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister. …  It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home.  Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.

• A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, but selling the meat to a neighbouring village is reasonable.

• If one commits the act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrement become impure and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned.

• Wine and all intoxicating beverages are impure, but opium and hashish are not.

• If a man sodomises the son, brother, or father of his wife after their marriage, the marriage remains valid.

• During sexual intercourse, if the penis enters a woman’s vagina or a man’s anus, fully or only as far as the circumcision ring, both partners become impure, even if they have not reached puberty; they must consequently perform ablutions.

Ayatullah Komeini• A woman who has contracted a continuing marriage does not have the right to go out of the house without her husband’s permission; she must remain at his disposal for the fulfilment of any one of his desires, and may not refuse herself to him except for a religiously valid reason. If she is totally submissive to him, the husband must provide her with her food, clothing, and lodging, whether or not he has the means to do so. A woman who refuses herself to her husband is guilty, and may not demand from him food, clothing, lodging, or any later sexual relations; however, she retains the right to be paid damages if she is repudiated.

• If a father (or paternal grandfather) marries off his daughter (or granddaughter) in her absence without knowing for a certainty that she is alive, the marriage becomes null and void as soon as it is established that she was dead at the time of the marriage.

• It is not illegal for an adult male to ‘thigh’ or enjoy a young girl who is still in the age of weaning; meaning to place his penis between her thighs, and to kiss her.

• If a man commits adultery with an unmarried woman, and subsequently marries her, the child born of that marriage will be a bastard unless the parents can be sure it was conceived after they were married. A child born of an adulterous father is legitimate.

• Ali [son-in-law of Mohammed], having cut off the hands of two thieves, treated their wounds and offered them his hospitality, and this affected them so much that they became utterly devoted to him; or again when he heard that the marauding army of Muawiyah had abused a woman of one of the tribes, he was so upset and moved to pity he declared: “If a man died after such an occurrence, no one could blame him.” And yet, despite a nature as sensitive as that, Ali bared his sword and hacked the perpetrators to pieces. This is the meaning of justice.

Mohammad & Aisha

Prophet Muhammad and his child-wife Aisha – Yahoo Answers

Muhammad married Aisha when she was six years old in Mecca and she joined him in Medina three years later when he was 53. He began having sex with Aisha when she was nine years old and still playing with dolls.

This is the original story told by the only valid biographers of Muhammad and Islam, Ibn Ishaq and Tabari, and the hadiths of Bukhari and Muslim. Refer also to the works of the Qur’an commentators Ibn Kathir and Ibn Qayyim and Ibn Kathir, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya, Volume II, translated by Prof. Trevor Le Gassick, Garnet Publishing Limited, UK. The Center for Muslim Contribution to Civilization, 2000. pp. 93-94, and Ibn Qayyim Al-Juaziyyah, Zad-ul Ma’ad fi Hadyi Khairi-l ‘Ibad, Provisions for the Hereafter, From the Guidance of Allah’s Best Worshipper, translated by Jalal Abualrub, Madinah Publishers & Distributors, December 2000, Volume I, pp. 157-158.

• Muhammad said that he had dreamed of Aisha before demanding her from her father, and his own brother in Islam, Abu Bakr, claiming special “prophets rights” when Abu Bakr was reluctant to give her to him.

• Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 235: Narrated ‘Aisha: That the Prophet said to her, “You have been shown to me twice in my dreams. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and someone said to me, ‘This is your wife.’ When I uncovered the picture, I saw that it was yours. I said, ‘If this is from Allah, it will be done.”

• Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 18: Narrated ‘Ursa: The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said, “But I am your brother!”

• The Prophet said, “You are my brother in Allah’s religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.”

• Marriage to a female already offered to another was illegal in Arab law. Abu Bakr had already arranged for Aisha to marry Djubayr Mutim.

• “Muhammad married ‘A’isha in Mecca when she was a child of six and lived with her in Medina when she was nine or ten. She was the only virgin that he married. Her father, Abu Bakr, married her to him and the apostle gave her four hundred dirhams.” See Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasulullah, The Life of Muhammad, translated by Alfred Guillaume, Oxford University Press, p. 792.

• Tabari VII:7 “The Prophet married Aisha in Mecca three years before the Hijrah, after the death of Khadija. At the time she was six.”

• Tabari IX:128 “When the Prophet married Aisha, she was very young and not yet ready for consummation.” See The History of Al-Tabari: The Foundation of the Community translated by M.V. McDonald and annotated by W. Montgomery Watt, State University of New York Press, Albany 1987, Volume VII, pp. 6-7, and The History of Al-Tabari: The Last Years of the Prophet, translated and annotated by Ismail K. Poonawala, State University of New York Press, Albany 1990, Volume IX, pp. 129-130.

• Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236: Narrated Hisham’s father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated that marriage when she was nine years old. – Yahoo Answers

  4. There were no fatwas like that. All fabricated by those who have hidden agenda to tarnish the image of Islam. Everything should be taken into consideration under basis of Quranic teachings. Whatever Quran has forbidden will not be, in any way, allowed even if you see something in the hadith in favor, that absolutely falls in the category of fabrication.

    Anybody who read Quran at least for once will be in agreement on the above.


  5. The article quotes authentic sources: Bukhari 6:298. Why don’t you look them up instead of questioning the article’s veracity?

    Ayatollah Khomeini repeats and confirms the Hadiths. Read his Little Green Book (Tahrir al-Wasilah).

    Islam stands fully exposed by its own scriptures and scholars. There is no need for non-Muslims to add their analysis.

    Here are more Hadiths;

    1) Muslim (8:3309) – Muhammad consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was only nine. (See also Bukhari 58:234 and many other places).

    2) Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little girl and fondle her.

    3) Bukhari (93:639) – The Prophet of Islam would recite the ‘Holy Qur’an’ with his head in Aisha’s lap, when she was menstruating.

    4) Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period.

    5) Tabari (IX:137) – “Allah granted Rayhana of the Qurayza to Muhammad as booty.” Muhammad considered the women that he captured and enslaved to be God’s gift to him.?

    6) Bukhari (62:137) – An account of women taken as slaves in battle by Muhammad’s men after their husbands and fathers were killed. The woman were raped with Muhammad’s approval.?

    7) Abu Dawud (38:4458) – Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib: “A slave-girl belonging to the house of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) committed fornication. He (the Prophet) said: Rush up, Ali, and inflict the prescribed punishment on her. I then hurried up, and saw that blood was flowing from her, and did not stop. So I came to him and he said: Have you finished inflicting (punishment on her)? I said: I went to her while her blood was flowing. He said: Leave her alone till her bleeding stops; then inflict the prescribed punishment on her. And inflict the prescribed punishment on those whom your right hands possess (i.e. slaves).”

  6. If all of you want to know reality of islam you have to go original sources Like Quraan.sahee ahadees and great muslim scolers.Allama shibli Abulala mododi moulana jalaluddin umari .Allama safiurrahman mubarakpuri..
    This was written by islam enemies




  8. Beat all the islamists with sandal


  9. Those who have no further courses, if it is right, means after menopause.Or it has ceased. Its easy to cherry pick verses and quote it out of context without applying logic. If we were to cherrypick verses or deeds by people of any sects ( including atheist like communist russia) we will end up in hatred. Love for all , Peace for all


  10. Unlike other world religions, why is Islam afraid of criticism and rejection? Why is it not open to critical evaluation, freedom of speech and thorough studies? I am afraid it is hiding something and fear being exposed,


  11. The Koran itself only came into its present form 200 years after the death of Mohammed.


  12. Those stories are based on Crappy Books written 200 Years after the death of Prophet Mohammad. If you want to blame Mohammad, read his own book Quran.


  13. Muslim is a war group. Mohammed started a cult religion and he wanted followers to obey him without any questions. Hence he used the name of God and Quran. Very idea of Islam, is to spread it and people should follow it. How to spread? Use brutal force for which they need more population. So a man marry many wives and younger she is better her productivity. But then the women should obey them and not love other religion male, so make her a slave in the name of religion and make as many babies as possible. Build a army and spread Islam.
    What a sick cult group.

  15. Ayatollah Khomeini’s rape of a small 4-year old child

    An excerpt from ‘Hal Ataaka Hadeeth ur-Raafidah’ by the late Sheikh Abu Mus’abaz-Zarqaawi (discussed here)

    “The author of the book ‘For Allah, Then For History’ [1] mentions to us an event that took place before his very eyes, when al-Khomeini [2] was living in Iraq, and was visiting an Iranian individual by the name of Sayyid Sahib.

    He says: ‘Sayyid Sahib was joyous with our visit, and we arrived at his house around the time of Dhuhr. So, he prepared for us a lavish dinner, and called some of his relatives, who came to see us, and the house became crowded in celebration of our presence.

    Sayyid Sahib then requested that we spend that night at his home, to which the Imam agreed. When it was night time, we were given our supper, and the guests would take the Imam’s hand and kiss it, and they would ask him questions, with him answering their questions.

    When it was time to sleep, the guests had all left, except for the inhabitants of the house. Al-Khomeini laid his eyes on a young girl who, despite being only four or five years of age, was very beautiful.

    So, the Imam requested from her father, Sayyid Sahib, that he spend the night with her in order to enjoy her. Her father happily agreed, and Imam al-Khomeini spent the night with the girl in his arms, and we could hear her crying and screaming [through the night].’”


    [1] This book was written under the alias Husayn al-Musawi, a former companion of al-Khomeini who later abandoned his previous beliefs.
    [2] Ayatollah al-Khomeini was the leader of the Shee’ah Raafidah of Iran in the 1980s.


  16. Well then bloody stop those Arabs. I am not a muslim but I would die of shame if this stuff about my religion was indeed true. I have muslim friends and I know they are awesome but after reading this nonsense I feel like just crying of sadness. Such torture of little girls and they are making religious excuses for it.


  17. I have read something in your blog ..but u even deny the age of Aisha, when it’s clear she was young, was 18 when Mohammed died and also she was playing with dolls (does 18 girls still play with dolls?) . I’m sorry but u are can’t be objective.


  18. If it has been addressed, we are not able to find it. Either give the correct link or this comment will be taken down.


  19. this has already been addressed on my weblog –



  20. there is also in the Quran, just to reply to “Quranist”! Quran 65:4:

    “And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for THOSE WHO HAVE NO COURSES (i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah is three months likewise


  21. your lack of knowledge about the quran and blind faith in hadith stories simply reflects your level of ignorance!


  22. anyone can read the quran and understand what a devil the so-called prophet mohammad was. a bloodthirsty murderer, rapist, pedophile, looter, sadist and someone who had nothing to do than give the people nonsense about a non-existent moon-god called allah! he made himself the apostle without any warning to the people by the moon-god allah himself. he was brutal and this made the general public listen to his nonsense theories and hallucinations he narrated them. whatever he wanted done was brought upon the people as the ‘will’ of the moon-god allah. this religion of death-cult called islam is a curse to humanity and MUST be eliminated at all costs before the world runs out of humans!


  23. i know its not digestable but its true,who accept these fatwa’s,they understand islam.not completely because this is a one stanza,many fatwa’s released in islam,first to be read it.


  24. hi rishi

    most so-called muslim scholars are a confused lot who believe more in heresay (hadith) rather than the quran. whoever follows bukhari, tabari and the lot, more than the quran has definitely gone astray. simply because a man with a beard goes ahead with meaningless fatwas in the name of islam, does not mean anything to muslims who follow the quran. there is no evidence from the quran to justify such fatwas. anything that is not there in the quran is not there in islam. it can not get simpler than this!!

    good luck to you in your pursuit for knowledge. hope this helps. more on (my wordpress blog on islam).


  25. There is more evidence in the article for the Prophet’s conduct than Ref. No. and Date. There is also the evidence of Bukhari (6:298) whose authority is accepted by all Muslim scholars.


  26. Because this written matter holds a Ref No. and Date, does not mean that it is true, actually it is a false fatwa like many others, how anyone can believe that the Prophet himself would commit an action that is Haram (forbidden) in Islam,it is strictly forbidden in islam to stay alone in some place with your fiance let alone touching her in that manner.


  27. Please stop criticizing other religions. And never try to tarnish the image of others. If you commit a sin … better repent., before you get punished.

    May God bless you with right knowledge. Think twice, or as many times as you can.


  28. Islam needs reform. It is not Islam that allows such lewdness but it is the bloody Arabs who are perverting Islam. All that these Arabs have is proof is Hadith of Bukhari and hiistory gathered by Ibn Ishaq. They were liars. Ibn Ishaq was actually exiled from Medina for narrating a Hadith from a woman he had never met. These people were the biggest enemies of Islam. No sane Muslim follows such pornography which is narrated in some of the Hadit and often associated with Islam by the bloody Arabs.


  29. Absolutely ludicrous article. Maybe you should conduct a little more research before publishing articles for popular misinformation.


  30. Destroy this rogue religion, before it destroys the World


  31. at the age of 6 !! that can be done only by crooked minded person.


  32. When the fatwa writers admit that the Prophet thighed Aisha when she was six years old, it is absurd for them to claim that this practice was introduced into Muslim society by the infidel West!
