    Posted: 14 October 2017 at 1:32am
Hello everyone. I have heard that Muhammad married Aisha when she was 6 and consummated his marriage with her when she was 9 years old. Some people use this information to accuse Muhammad of pedophilia. Personally, I would not want to rashly judge him of pedophilia when he probably was not a pedophile. After all, I don't see how a pedophile could have founded one of the world's largest religions. I just don't think a pedophile would get that many followers.

So anyway, I have heard that there is actually debate about the age of Aisha at her marriage and consummation. Is this true? What more information can you give me?

No: Our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was not a Paedophile: His marriage to Aisha (RA) was sanctioned by Allah (God) (SWT).

So you are allowed to marry a 6 year old, have sex with a child of 9 if Allah say it's OK in this case then?

Tim the plumber: Allah (SWT) is God: so yes, God said that this was fine; end of story! 

There really doesn't need to be any debate or argument about this!

There is no specific rulling on the age of marraige, that means in term of fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence), we call it "mubah" you can do it or not do it, so we as communty have room to make some "rulling" to manage it for the betterment for the community (based on local norm and knowledge of benefit and harm doing so etc). Similar case with the age of driving or voting, or having guns on that matter.

Who said that God said it was fine?

I mean if I told you that God had said that you should give me all your money you would not believe me. Why put total faith in this one?
