Koran allows young girls marriage up to nine years old

 

Supported evidence that the Prophet raped a little girl
A) Marriage of the Prophet with ʿĀʾisha from Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Bukhārī:
The Prophet had sexual relations with his wife ʿĀʾisha, being a girl of nine years of age:
Book of Marriage » Section on a person who has sexual relations with a girl who is nine years old, 59:
Ḥadīth:
4863 Qusayba b. ʿUqba told us, on the authority of Sufyān, on the authority of Hishām b. ʿUrwa, on the authority of ʿUrwa that the Prophet married ʿĀʾisha when she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her when she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

Explanation and comment:
Muḥammad married ʿĀʾisha when she was six years old, and consummated the marriage with, i.e., had sexual relations with her, when she was nine years old. However, the Koran says that Muḥammad was a good example, although if he had lived in our days he would have been tried on charge of rape of an innocent child.

In reply to those who claim that ʿĀʾisha was not a child, but a mature (or adult) woman, we will quote what Al-Bukhārī wrote about ʿĀʾisha when her mother took her from the swing to the Messenger’s lap:
Bukhārī »Book of Virtues of the Anṣār» Section on marrying ʿĀʾisha off to the Prophet, peace be upon him, her arrival in Medīna and his consummation of the marriage with her:
3681 Narrated Farwa b. Abī Al-Maghrāʾ, on the authority of ʿAlī b. Mushir, on the authority of Hishām, on the authority of his father, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, that she said: The Prophet married me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medīna and stayed at the home of Banū Al-Ḥārith b. Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Rūmān, came to me while I was playing on a swing along with my playmates. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing returned to normal, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Anṣārī women who said, “Best wishes and Allāh’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly the Messenger of Allāh came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time, I was a girl of nine years of age.
Explanation:
Her statement: “my hair fell down” means was torn.
Aḥmad narrated this story differently but in a lengthy manner: ʿĀʾisha said, “We went to Medīna and stayed at the home of Banū Al-Ḥārith, and the Messenger of Allāh came and entered our house. My mother came to me while I was playing in a swing … she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. And then my breathing returned to normal. The Messenger of Allāh was sitting on his bed and he had the men and women of the Anṣār with him. She seated me in his lap, and then said: These are you kinfolk, O Messenger of Allāh. May Allāh bless them. The men and women leaped, and the Messenger of Allāh consummated the marriage with me in our house when I was a girl of nine years of age.”

From the same book and the same section:
3683 Narrated ʿUbayd b. Ismāʿīl: Usāma told us, on the authority of Hishām, on the authority of his father, that Khadīja died three years before the Prophet departed to Medīna. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ʿĀʾisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated the marriage when she was nine years old.
Comment:
How heartless you are, O Prophet of Allāh, to take away a child who was playing on a swing in order to have sexual relations with her, and thus open the gates of hell for girls of your own nation through this behavior! For the Koran says about you: There is certainly a good exemplar for you in the Messenger of Allāh. (Sūrah Al-Aḥzāb 33: 21).
In the context of the story, ʿĀʾisha was the same age of this innocent little girl: My mother came to me while I was playing in a swing along with my playmates. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing returned to normal, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house and seated me in his lap.

 

ʿĀʾisha was a playful little girl that liked to play with her girlfriends.
I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girlfriends used to play with me, too. When the Messenger of Allāh used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me.

Transmitter: ʿĀʾisha, the mother of believers. Traditionist: Al-Bukhārī. The source: Ṣaḥīḥ Al- Bukhārī, page or number: 6130. Summary of the traditionist’s judgment: Authentic
As usual, the Messenger of Allāh claims that the reason for his marriage to ʿĀʾisha is a vision that came to him as he slept (and, as we all know, the visions of the prophets are inspired). A man (in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim an angel) came to him when he was asleep and told him, “This is your wife.” And behold, there was ʿĀʾisha.
Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Bukhārī »Book of interpretation» Section on women revealed in a dream:
6609 Narrated ʿUbayd b. Ismāʿīl: Abū Usāma told us, on the authority of Hishām, on the authority of his father, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, may Allāh be pleased with her: She said, “The Prophet said to her, “You have been shown to me twice in my dream. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and someone said (to me): ‘This is your wife.’ When I uncovered the piece of silk, I saw that it was you. I said, ‘If this is from Allāh, it will be done.

Commentary of Fatḥ Al-Bārī:
The tradition of ʿĀʾisha with regard to the Prophet, peace be upon him, seeing her in a dream before he married her, is mentioned in both sections “Section on women revealed in a dream” and the one that follows it, i.e., “Section on silk clothes in a dream.” The first chain of transmitters is on the authority of Abū Usāma, while the second is via Abū Muʿāwiya; both are on the authority of Hishām, who is the son of ʿUrwah b. al-Zubayr, on the authority of his father, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha herself. It was narrated by Muslim after the same fashion. … And the angel mentioned is Jibrīl.
Comment:
The same traditional method followed by the Prophet to justify his atrocities.
This man is not the Prophet nor is the girl ʿĀʾisha; it is rather a picture of a Muslim man who imitated the Prophet and married this innocent child, with an age difference between them close to that between the Prophet and ʿĀʾisha. This picture may illustrate to you the catastrophic way in which the Prophet treated ʿĀʾisha, thus exposing millions of underage girls to child marriage (rather child rape) to this day:

 

B) The Prophet’s marriage with ʿĀʾisha from Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim:
ʿĀʾisha realized, out of her own experience of forced marriage and rape by the Messenger of Allāh, being a little girl of nine years, that Allāh is nothing but the whims of the Prophet. In reply to those who claim that ʿĀʾisha was not a child, but a mature (or adult) woman, we will quote what Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim wrote about ʿĀʾisha when her mother took her from the swing to the Messenger’s lap:
Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim »Book of Marriage» Section on fathers marrying off their minor virgin daughters:
1422 Narrated Abū Kurayb and Muḥammad b. Al-ʿAlāʾ: Narrated Abū Usāma: Narrated Abū Bakr b. Abī Shayba: I found in my book on the authority of Abū Usāma, on the authority of Hishām, on the authority of his father, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, that she said: The Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him, married me when I was six years old, and he consummated the marriage with me when I was at the age of nine. She further said: We went to Medīna and I had an attack of fever for a month, and my hair had come down to the earlobes. Umm Rūmān (my mother) came to me and I was at that time on a swing along with my playmates. She called me loudly, I went to her and I did not know what she had wanted of me. She took hold of my hand and took me to the door, and I was saying: Ha, ha (as if I was gasping), until the agitation of my heart was over. She took me to a house, where had gathered the women of the Anṣār. They all blessed me, wished me good luck and said: May it be a good omen. She (my mother) handed me to over to them. They washed my head and groomed me and nothing frightened me. The Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him, came there in the morning, and I was handed over to him.

Explanation:
In another version: “He married her when she was a girl of seven years of age.” This clearly proves the legality of a father marrying off his minor daughter without her consent; because she has no consent to give. All Muslims are unanimous that it is permissible for a father to marry off his minor, virgin daughter on the basis of this tradition. And when she reaches the age of majority she is not at liberty to dissolve the marriage [contract] according to Mālik, Shāfiʿī and the rest of the scholars of the Ḥijāz. The people of Iraq, however, maintain that she is at liberty to dissolve it when she reaches adulthood.
… Mālik, Shāfiʿī and Abū Ḥanīfa maintain: The criterion here is whether she can bear sexual intercourse or not. This varies from one girl to another and cannot be judged according to age. This is the correct ruling. There is no limitation in ʿĀʾisha’s tradition; there is neither prevention from doing so in the case of someone who can bear it before the age of nine, nor authorization in the case of someone who cannot bear it after reaching the age of nine. … As to her saying in one version: “He married me when I was a girl of seven years of age,” and in most versions: “a girl of six years of age,” one can combine both and infer that she was six years old and a fraction.
And as to her saying: “Um Rūmān, came to me while I was playing in a swing,” Um Rūmān was ʿĀʾisha’s mother.
Comment:
How heartless you are, O Prophet of Allāh, to take away a child who was playing on a swing in order to have sexual relations with her, and thus open the gates of hell for girls of your own nation through this behavior! For the Koran says about you: “There is certainly a good exemplar for you in the Messenger of Allāh.” (Sūrah Al-Aḥzāb 33: 21).

As usual, the Messenger of Allāh claims that the reason for his marriage to ʿĀʾisha is a vision that came to him as he slept (and, as we all know, the visions of the prophets are inspired). A man (in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim an angel) came to him when he was asleep and told him, “This is your wife.” And behold, there was ʿĀʾisha. This occurs in Ṣaḥīḥ Al-Bukhārī »Book of interpretation» Section on women revealed in a dream:
It was also mentioned in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim» Book of Virtues of the Companions » Section on of the virtue of ʿĀʾisha, may Allāh be pleased with them both:
Authentic Ḥadīth # 2438: Narrated Khalaf b. Hishām … Hishām on the authority of his father on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, that she said that the Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him, has said: I saw you in a dream for three nights when an angel brought you to me in a silk cloth and he said: Here is your wife, and when I removed (the cloth) from your face, lo, it was yourself, so I said: If this is from Allāh, let Him carry it out. Ibn Idrīs, Abū Kurayb and Abū Usāma reported it all on the authority of Hishām with the same chain of transmitters.
Explanation of Imām An-Nawawī:
The Prophet’s statement, may peace be upon him, “an angel brought you to me in a silk cloth (surqa min ḥarīr),” … means strips of white silk cloth.

Comment:
The same usual method is followed by the Prophet to excuse his scandalous behavior.

C) Evidence from Sunnah and Fiqh (jurisprudence): Kitāb Al-Umm, by Ash-Shāfiʿī (jurisprudence) »miscellaneous sections on marriage, divorce and other topics» related to parents marrying off their daughters: (Shāfiʿī is one of the four imāms, i.e., religious scholars, whose scholarship was unanimously accepted by all Sunni Muslims.)
Ash-Shāfiʿī said … on the authority of Hishām b. ʿUrwa, on the authority of his father, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, that ʿĀʾisha reported, “The Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him, married me when I was six or seven years old, and he consummated the marriage with me when I was at the age of nine.” Shāfiʿī expressed some suspicion. Shāfiʿī said: “…the fact that Abū Bakr married ʿĀʾisha off to the Prophet when she was six years and that he consummated the marriage with her when she was at the age of nine indicates that the father is more entitled to [decide] for his daughter than she herself is; but if she, being a virgin, reached the age of majority, then she would be more entitled [to decide] for herself than he is. It seems to me that it should not be permitted [to marry her off] until she reaches the age of majority, when she can give her consent.”
The marriage of the Prophet Muḥammad, peace be upon him, with ʿĀʾisha, may Allāh be pleased with her: when she was a girl of six years of age, and his consummation of the marriage with her when she was a girl of nine years: In the two Ṣaḥīḥs, on the authority of ʿĀʾisha, she said, “The Prophet, peace be upon him, married me when I was a girl of six years of age, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine years old.”
The consensus of opinion: It is unanimously agreed that it is legal to give a minor daughter in marriage, and that her father is the one to give her away. Ash-Shāfiʿī and others also made provision for the paternal grandfather.
Ibn Qudāma maintaned in Al-Mughnī:
It is permissible for a father to marry off his minor, virgin daughter.
Ibn Al-Munḏir stated:
All of the scholarly transmitters, whose narration is trustworthy, are unanimous that it is permissible for a father to marry off his minor, virgin daughter, as long as he gives her in marriage to a competent husband. He may marry her off against her will and without her consent.
According to the statement of Al-Baghawī in Fatḥ Al-Bārī: Scholars are agreed that it is permissible for parents to marry off their young daughters, even if they were in the cradle. However, it is not permissible for their husbands to consummate the marriage with them unless they are fit for sexual relations and can bear [having sexual relations with] men.

D) Evidence from the practices of the Companions:
The indications that prove, without any reservation, that early marriage was quite common among the Companions of the Prophet, are numerous. Early marriage was not restricted to the Prophet, peace be upon him, as some people may fancy; it is rather a general feature of his and of his nation. Below are a few references from Islamic history and Prophetic Ḥadīth:
1. Alī b. Ṭālib, may Allāh be pleased with him, married off his daughter Umm Kulthūm to ʿUmar b. Al-Khaṭṭab, may Allāh be pleased with him, as she was born to him before the death of the Prophet, peace be upon him. ʿUmar, may Allāh be pleased with him, married her when she was still a minor, not having reached [the age of majority] yet. Narrated by ʿAbdur-Razzāq in Al-Muṣannaf, and by Ibn Saʿd in Aṭ-Ṭabaqāt.
2. Narrated ʿUrwa b. Az-Zubayr: Az-Zubayr, may Allāh be pleased with him, married off his baby daughter as soon as she was born. This tradition was reported by Saʿīd b. Manṣūr in his Sunan, And by Ibn Abī Shayba in Al-Muṣannaf with an authentic chain of transmitters.
Here we offer a video clip of Sheikh Yāsir Burhamī (vice president of the Salafist Call and Muslim activist and preacher) asserting that Islam permitted marriage to minors from the age of 3 years on. “It is permissible to have sexual relations with a minor as long as she can bear it,” says Sheikh Burhamī. He cites the Koranic verse we have mentioned above.
Video of several Islamic clerics asserting that ʿĀʾisha’s mother took her away from the swing to the Prophet’s lap when she was six years old, that the Prophet had sexual relations with her (i.e., raped her) when she was nine years old:
Statistics show that 3000 Saudi girls under the age of 13 married older men with an age difference between them that exceeded 25 years. > Source: Al Arabiya news agency.
