Islamic Republic of Iran: Man gets eight years prison for beheading his teen wife



No, Islamic law does not permit a man to murder his wife.

The Qur’an does, however, say “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (47:4)

Sajjad Heidarnava may have considered his wife Mona Heidari to have become an unbeliever by rejecting something he considered Islamic. “And it is not fitting for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and his messenger have settled a matter, that they should claim any say in the matter, and whoever is rebellious to Allah and his messenger, he indeed goes astray in obvious error.” (Qur’an 33:36)

And now he has been sentenced to eight years in prison. That’s all. Eight years, or “more than eight years,” as the story below says: “seven and a half years in prison for murder and eight months for assault.” That’s all. That’s how much this woman’s life was worth.

“Iranian man gets eight years for beheading teen wife,” AFP, January 18, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

An Iranian man has been jailed for more than eight years after decapitating his wife and displaying her head in public, in a case that shocked the country, the judiciary said Wednesday.

Mona Heidari, 17, was killed in February 2022 by her husband and brother-in-law in Ahwaz, capital of the southwestern province of Khuzestan.

Video that emerged later of her smiling husband parading her decapitated head in the street sparked an outpouring of grief and outrage in the Islamic Republic.

Sajjad Heidarnava was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison for murder and eight months for assault, judiciary spokesman Massoud Setayeshi told reporters.

The family of Heidari had pardoned the killer rather than demanding qesas — Iran’s Islamic law of retribution…

At the time of the murder, media outlets in Iran said Heidari had been married at the age of 12 and was the mother of a three-year-old son when she was killed….
