The story is really sad but the outcome is really good. The father and husband were both jailed, alhamdulillah. Basically to sum up what happened to this young Muslim girl. She was forced into a marriage with a 30-year-old man. She was not treated well, so she ran away and went to the court and spoke to Muhammed Al-Qathi, the court judge and he heard her out, although it was never heard of. May Allah (swt) bless Muhamamd Al-Qathi for following Islam and promoting the good and forbidding the evil. May Allah (swt) protect this young sister and all other young Muslim sisters around the world who are forced into these situations. Ameen!

DISCLAIMER: I do not support or condone Anwar al-Awlaki’s support for terrorism. I do not agree with him on his views and opinions on jihad.
“The time I spent in detention was a great blessing from Allah. They were moments of contemplation and study which I was greatly in need of. Alhamdulillah, Allah has blessed me during that time of solitude with tranquility and peace to the extent that at most of the time I was preferring detention over freedom. Now that I am free I ask Allah to enable me to thank Him for his blessings.
“I am greatly moved to know that many of my brothers and sisters have been asking about my situation and praying for my release. I thank them all. May Allah reward all of you with Paradise.”
