Salam everyone,

I was just wondering. I know this issue does not apply to people in Sabla, but I have read that in UAE if a woman is pregnant and unmarried, she has to get married immediately, leave the country (if she is expat and deliver there) or go to jail. http://www.dubaifaqs.com/pregnant-in-dubai.php

How does Oman deal with this usually. Is that similar to UAE or is it completely different?

When you say Oman do you mean the society or the higher authorities (governments etc.)? I have only met one woman with such case, she had pre-marital sex and produced a baby from it. And it did not go so well. Her family wanted nothing to do with her after they found out, so they proceeded with emancipation and disowned the daughter and her little baby. However, the government gave her financial support, being a single mother. Also the biological father of the baby aided the woman as well. It's not so tough here in Oman, I guess.

I have "heard" that when found out, the guy goes to serve 3 months and the girl depending on her condition, either serves 3 months or stays to give birth. After birth both are forcefully married.

I was going to open a similar thread, and yeah I'd like an answer too. Because I heard that the women (along with her kid) goes to jail for life since the stonning rule doesn't apply here. It probably is the same for the guy.

no way......this is just doesnt make any sense.
and I think this thread is about getting pregnant before marriage.....even in Islam the stonning rule doesnt apply here.
to apply the rule she/he has to be married and practicing adultery.

Normally the baby is had in secret and then dumped outside of a hospital where it then goes to an Orphange. These children have no chance in life as none of them have a tribal name and they become highly institutionalized with no concept of money or working and they get thrown out the orphanage at 16.

Blame the parents and insult them all you like, but does the child, who is innocent in the whole thing, really deserve that?

This is the law in UAE. If you are pregnant and unmarried you get punished by jail time. If the lady is an expat, she gets jail and then deportation. Local lady will be in trouble too.

Indeed it would be a sad situation for a child.

In the case of rape, they are married and then divorced so the girl's name is not ruined or soemthing. The child will carry the father's name and the guy has to support after he's done with jail time. Or he will work in jail and thereafter, that money goes to the child.

I was wondering, but I do not think it states anywhere in Islam where a victim must marry his rapist. I think it is NOT the victim who should hang head in shame, it is a rapist who has to be ashamed of what he has done and shame burden should fall on him NOT the victim.

Rape is not woman's fault. There ARE rapes in countries with Muslim majority too. Women with full abaya can get raped. I just cannot understand how can you want to marry a person who has hurt you physically and emotionally. I mean there IS a reason why rapists are thrown in jail.

Just because a woman wears an abaya doesn't mean anything. I've seen the way some of those girls walk and you can easily tell what they're asking for.

And why you would want to marry him? Well it is common fact that marriage tends to change people. Instead of being barbaric and putting human beings in cages how about we try more rehabilitative methods?

Exactly! Nine times out of ten a rapist will admit to a feeling of hopelessness in trying to suppress and control what they were doing. So who else is left to blame?

Rape is not only about sex. It is about power over the victims. Do you think all rapists raped because they were horny and they wanted sex and could not get it. MANY rapists were MARRIED and even had kids.

That's why I said it's due to powerlessness. He knows he can obtain it in other ways and yet he can't stop himself.

You must understand that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes a man will be coerced into raping a women by some unknown reason.
At that time the woman will think that something terrible is happening.
But if people followed rules as they should the two of them would end up getting married and the man would be forced into supporting this other woman who otherwise would have had no chance in the world.

Who are we to think that we can judge rapists?

I can just imagine if the rapist is married and suddenly he gets second wife. He explains to his first wife that he raped the second one so now that must live together as a happy family.

I heard in Saudi rape is punished by death.

I dont know if your a man or a woman, but are you seriously saying that if bunch of people kicked down a house door...went inside, raped the woman...then she must marry <one of them!!!>

If thats the case, every man would just kidnap a woman who turned him down in marriage, rape her...then she would HAVE to marry him now!!! Hell, in this case I think he will reduce the amount of money that he will spend in the wedding!!!

THATS JUST NONSENSE...

I personally think a person who raped a woman should be burned alive :angry:, and I have a feeling that many ladies here will be with me in this one.

PickledPablo: I don't see any sense in marry someone who has physically and emotionally abused you, and somehow taken you innocence away from you. How could you even begin to accept him as partner in life. Seriously how?

Why is the victim being blamed for being raped. It doesn't make sense. I don't think anyone would be that silly to say, he I am flirting, or behaving my best, and minding my own business so you could come and rape me please. I mean really that is insane. Which brings me to would you blame kids for being kids when they are raped as well?

Of course we are nobody to be judging anyone, but we tend to judge something or someone based on their actions and saying. So when a rapist goes about and raping women or children, how could you not judge them? Why are you judging and blaming the victim then, saying it is them who got them to be raped?

It would not be considered adultery. It would be considered fornication. Adultery is when someone is cheating on their spouse.

No, the police in uniform does not do any sort of checking at any hotels or homes.

There are about 3 hotels, and about 5 hotel apartments which received warnings against providing room to entertain Chinese call girls.

I don't know if anybody heard about the houses that had a raid by police in Athaiba, Ghobra, Al Khuwair and Bowshar, and found some girls in those houses, of Indians, Sri Lankans, Indonesians, Philippinos and other from Czech Republic, and girls form somewhere else, this violates the rules of human trafficking, and public morality, and adultery, as well prostitution.

No body had complained about them, but they found out about those houses, they collected evidences of video recordings, of people who entered these houses, they have everything in hand.

In Oman we have an active anti-trafficking committee chaired by a cabinet-level officials that coordinates Omanís anti-trafficking efforts.


behind closed doors no one will bother you. it's not like there are moral police patrolling hotels and all that.

This is what everybody thinks, but unfortunately for them, they were wrong. There are others doing that job for the police, and they only inform authorities of what happens in the hotels, and certain places where they doubt there is something wrong going on or even certain flats or houses.

They both get put in jail if they find him! This is what happens she's brought to police investigation, she tells them who he is, they bring him over, if he admits, then he's forced to marry her, if he admits but refuses to marry her they both go to jail, if he doesn't admit, there will be DNA testing!

My relative has a house helper from 'another country' now she's pregnant and the person who made her pregnant is out of the country?!! What do you do in such scenario?!! They are trying to protect her, so she goes back to her home country, they allowed her to continue work with them (which she wanted) until near her due date! We are still investigating with her embassy and our law if she can deliver here but I don't know what are the rules for naming the baby and nationality!! So a very long process!! The family she works for are giving her all the options available without compromising her financial/employment status and what she prefers to do...! But I assure you 'one in a million Omani' would have done that, she would have been 'deported' ASAP once it has been discovered or put to prison! Again if child is born here there are some rules about 'child rights' and 'human rights'... so they make it very difficult to deliver here...

My relative has a house helper from 'another country' now she's pregnant and the person who made her pregnant is out of the country?!! What do you do in such scenario?!! They are trying to protect her, so she goes back to her home country, they allowed her to continue work with them (which she wanted) until near her due date! We are still investigating with her embassy and our law if she can deliver here but I don't know what are the rules for naming the baby and nationality!! So a very long process!! The family she works for are giving her all the options available without compromising her financial/employment status and what she prefers to do...! But I assure you 'one in a million Omani' would have done that, she would have been 'deported' ASAP once it has been discovered or put to prison! Again if child is born here there are some rules about 'child rights' and 'human rights'... so they make it very difficult to deliver here...


Will keep you updated...:mmhmm:

[p.s. FF: r u in Kansas, I'll be visiting sometime in Feb2012, it will be nice to meet up!]


OMG that is horrible! Well, how will she deliver then? The father ran away and she is all alone, they are not married. Also, I think the situation would be much more easy depending on what passport you hold. I also heard that most of the time the maid will be deported immediately without questions.

I think that naming is up to her, but the nationality has to be taken after the father. Even the father is Omani and mother is other nationality, the kids would still be Omani.

Nope I am not in Kansas. Jack was quoting "The Wizard of Oz" LOOOL I live in Oman. I have never been to Kansas actually. I lived in other state.
