Muhammad Was Not A Pedophile
- This article expresses a pro-Islamic viewpoint.
Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) married Hazrat ayesha(may Allah be pleased with her) at the age of 6 but consumed his marriage at the age of 9.[Bukhari] Would a pedophile wait for three years when the parents are ready to offer their daughter to him? Some critics say this is because he did not have money, mean etc. But they missed a point, that is, it happened in that time when Ayesha(ra) was 9. As Ayesha(ra) reached puberty, his father said to the prophet to take her to his house. In this context prophet said this. According to principle of pedophile no pedophile will do such act when everything is in his side.
Ayesha (ra) said in Tirmidhi hadith, that She never saw the private part's of Muhammmad(sm) and nor Muhammad did saw her.
So will a pedophile marry and be restrained from having sex? Question arises so why Prophet Muhammad(sm) married her? It was a divine wisdom from Allah. The whole muslim world consider Ayesha(ra) as Mother of the believer. She lived for more than 16 years after the death of Muhammad(sm). Ayesha(ra) had excellent memory. She was a Scholar of the scholars. She delivered thousands of hadith in her whole life. Without her knowledge we would not be able to know thousands of rules and regulation, especially for the women. She is a role model in Islam for all the women.
All who claiming that Ayesha(ra) was pre-pubescent don't they know that even a girl of age 9 can reach puberty? To check you have to just go on the internet and see. There are many instances that many 9 year old girls reached puberty at this particular age.
Science tells us that the age of puberty keeps on changing depending upon diet, surrounding, and weather. For example in America the age of puberty is much earlier as compared to the India and Pakistan. Today science also tells us that closer to the equator the more chances of puberty is much more earlier. A recent case happened where a girl in Bombay in India who has just reached 9 she has got puberty, she has got menstrual cycle. And that thing is there in the family; even the mother had the same thing. It may be rare. So it is very much possible that some women can reach puberty at the age of 9. The same thing with Hazrat Ayesha(ra), she reached puberty at an early age.
Another group say that Ayesha(ra) played with dolls. That's right. But you need to hear that her husband was a Prophet. So he had to act on that way, with love, affection and kindness. Prophet gave her liberty as she was very young. Do they want to say that, a pubescent girl does not play? I ask is it not possible that a woman is eager to play and pass time in joy? Yes, doll is permitted for children but Prophet Muhammad(Sm) was not harsh. He was very affectionate that he permitted her beloved wife Ayesha(ra) to play with dolls.
In her whole life Hazrat Ayesha(ra) never said any discouraging thing about her husband Muhammad(sm). In fact she herself said that,”Who was more fortunate and loving than me among the wives of Huzur(Muhammad(sm))?" Will a pedophile be worthy of such highness of character? Their relation is an example of how should one treat with young women. Their relation is the most beautiful relation with love, affection that everyone wishes to have in the history of human.
All who are all saying without knowledge and filled with misinformation. Please study Islam with open mind. Islam is for all, not only for the Arabs and Muslims.
