Not bizarre, not strange, just pure sick.

Al-Sersawi teaches at the prestigious Egypt’s Al-Azhar University and claims that Al-Shafi’I says a girl born in an adulterous relationship is ‘not really his daughter’.

Therefore, by his logic, an illegitimate daughter does not carry her father’s name, ‘she is not his daughter according to Sharia. She is not officially attributed to him’.

According to the Daily Mail, another Egyptia cleric Muftah Mohammad Maarouf, said in televised debate the age for marrying should be low enough for new-born babies to be married off.

Horrifically, he said that ‘no harm’ is done to the child, there is no problem ‘preventing her from getting married’ adding ‘in Islamic Sharia there is no set age for marriage when it comes to females’.
