Auther : Mustafa Hawamdah -Adnan Al-Samady

 

The study aimed at getting acquainted with Islams standpoint towards getting married to relatives and its effect on spreading mental retardation of children. The specimen of the study included (378) residents in nine centers of various Jordanian cities (Amman, Irbid, Zarqa, Ajloun, and Jerash. Information on the degree of kinstio between the parents of every resident was gathered from the files kept in the center (first or second degree). Retardation was classified into three levels (slight, medium, and intense). Causes of retardation were classified into two (innate and acquired). Other factors were taken into consideration such as place of abode (city, village, camp). The percentages of frequencies of kinship, the level of retardation and causes of retardation were drawn and were tested by (X2). Results showed that 48% of the specimen belongs to families that have kinship and 31% had a second degree kinship. The following percentages were recorded for the degree of retardation, their causes and frequencies: 69% for innate mental retardation and 31% for frequencies of acquired retardation. These percentages were of the level (a=0.05). The study recommended that people should abide by the instructions of Islam on kinship marriage and should work to take other precautionary measures by running laboratory tests before marriage to overcome the retarded-infants phenomenon.
