After a man felt “dishonored” by a neighboring family, the court agreed to allow the parties to settle their dispute by permitting the man to marry his offender’s 10-year-old little sister.

Once Mudassir was informed that he would not be marrying the 10-year-old girl, he decided to take back the property that Allah had granted him by religious right — his sister’s life…
