Muslims And Misyar Marriages

Misyar Marriages are on the rise in the Islamic world.

In such marriages, the woman relinquishes some of the rights that Islam grants her, such as the right to a home and to financial support from her husband, and, if he has other wives, the right to an equal part of his time and attention.Demand is high for misyar marriages on online matchmaking sites, as well as through services using text messages and email.

Here are some personal ads for Misyar Marriages (with my comments):

"Young man, 26, from the UAE, seeks misyar marriage to a divorcee, widow, or single woman. Age not an issue."

So happy that age isn't an issue for this young buck!

"Young man, 21, excellent monthly income, seeks misyar marriage as soon as possible to single girl up to age 21 and up to 70 kg, living in Jeddah."

I like this guy... get specific about the size of your secret wife! Easier to a hide a smaller woman.

"Egyptian doctor, 45, seeks pretty, white Saudi woman from Jeddah, age 28-40, for misyar marriage. I will visit her twice a week."

Don't dare push for 3 times a week!

"Egyptian accountant, 30, seeks misyar marriage with Saudi woman. Age, appearance, whether she has children, and whether she is a widow, single, or divorced unimportant. What is important is her ability to satisfy the needs of a man who desires things permitted by religion (halal)."

This fella seems a little desperate.

"Young, highly educated man, 29, energetic and with a winning personality, seeks single woman or widow aged 18-50 living in Syria, for misyar marriage."

Wait, how much of a "winner" can this guy (age 29) if he will accept a 50 year old?

"Saudi clerk, 38, from a well-known family, seeks pretty, white, delicate businesswoman or clerk for misyar marriage. With Allah's help, if things work out, the marriage will be official."

Likes the professional types eh?

"Young religious man, 29, working in the UAE, seeks misyar marriage with pretty, religious girl from a well-known tribe, age 14-19. I will pay her 1000 dirhams a month."

This guy either wants a sex slave or wants to start an elementary school.
