I have read that scholars allow pre pubescent intercourse if they can bear it: وأكثر المشايخ على أنه ‌لا ‌عبرة ‌للسن في هذا الباب وإنما العبرة للطاقة إن كانت ضخمة سمينة تطيق الرجال ولا يخاف عليها المرض من ذلك؛ كان للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن لم تبلغ تسع سنين، وإن كانت نحيفة مهزولة لا تطيق الجماع ويخاف عليها المرض لا يحل للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن كبر سنها وهو الصحيح الفتاوى الهندية، المطبعة الكبرى الأميرية، ج1 ص287 The majority of scholars say that age doesn’t matter. What matters is the ability. If she’s big and fat, can endure men and cannot fall ill from it (sex), then the husband can consummate his marriage even if she’s not nine years old yet. But if she’s thin and weak, and can’t endure intercourse, and can fall ill from it, then the husband isn’t allowed to consummate his marriage even if she’s old. This is the correct view. and I understood that due to changing times, scholars do not allow it and early marriage generally. So I ask this: If I believe it is immoral to consummate with someone 8-12 even if they can physically bear it, am I sinful? Scholars today do not allow it so am I sinful to believe it is immoral?

الجواب حامدا ومصليا

The Shariah is just. It is Haram to think that Islamic rulings are immoral.
