A Moroccan who was forced to marry her rapist has recently killed herself. She was forced to do this in the name of 'honour' a backward tribalistic mentality and tradition that some people follow, a tradition that has nothing to do with Islam. During the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, he did not punish the rape victim, but the rapist: Sunan Abu Dawud Book 38, Number 4366: Narrated Wa'il ibn Hujr: When a woman went out in the time of the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) for prayer, a man attacked her and overpowered (raped) her. She shouted and he went off, and when a man came by, she said: That (man) did such and such to me. And when a company of the Emigrants came by, she said: That man did such and such to me. They went and seized the man whom they thought had had intercourse with her and brought him to her. She said: Yes, this is he. Then they brought him to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). When he (the Prophet) was about to pass sentence, the man who (actually) had assaulted her stood up and said: Apostle of Allah, I am the man who did it to her. and of the man who had had intercourse with her, he said: Stone him to death. He also said: He has repented to such an extent that if the people of Medina had repented similarly, it would have been accepted from them.
