From Alternative Angles:
Here’s an excerpt of Shaykh Rageah’s lecture:
“If Allah blesses you with two daughters and you maintain them, teach them the book of Allah [Quran], put the hijab [traditional veil] on them, and you say; Aisha you look beautiful with the hijab, Temiya, you look wonderful with the hijab. And Glorious is God (سبحان الله), A lot of sisters and a lot of brothers, they don't understand that children from a young age they adopt what they see and they grow with what you teach them, and the sisters, God has willed it (ما شاء الله), [say]: ‘Oh she is so cute, she is just going to a wedding. She is only nine year old; God has willed it (ما شاء الله). Put a miniskirt for her’. A miniskirt when she bends down you can see, Glorious is God (سبحان الله), the moon from the other end. Allah is the greatest (الله اكبر).
“But this is not Islam. Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her (رضي الله عنها), she was married at the age of nine. If you think that is abuse, Oprah [Winfrey], this lady she was pregnant when she was nine year old. She is an adult. Don't treat them like other kids. No. You say, Hey, Shame on you. This is not what Allah Glorified and Exalted be He (سبحانه و تعالى) desires from you. This is not what Allah wants from you. This is not what the messenger of Allah (رسول الله), peace and blessing be upon him (صلى الله عليه وسلم), wants from you.”
Shaykh Rageah’s statement regarding Oprah Winfrey is inaccurate. In an interview to Dave Letterman Winfrey admitted that she survived a brutal rape at the age of nine, underwent constant episodes of sexual molestation between the ages of 10 and 14 and became pregnant at 14 (her son died in infancy).
