A statement by director of the organisation, Professor Ishaq Akintola said age is not part of the condition that must be met before marriage could be solemnised in Islam. According to him, where the bride is a minor, Islam prescribes protective solemnisation of marriage to shield the bride from abuse.

“This means that the girl who is deemed to be of tender age is left untouched by the man until she attains puberty. Another major condition for the child is that the girl herself has the right to repudiate the marriage when she attains maturity if she does not like her spouse”, the professor said.
