I am a revert of 2 years and have found the most amazing tranquility, total contentment and feeling of security I've ever known in Islam. Recently I am having issue with Muhammed (PBUH) consumating the marriage with Aisha when she was 9. I have so many people say its different then, its customary, they were not like us then, always the same answers. But these answers dont satisfy me. Killing baby daughters was customary, however that doesnt make it right and the prophet (PBUH) stopped this. So why was it okay to have sex with a 9 year old girl? Even if she had started mensus, her body was still a kid body. How could a prophet of God feel this is okay? What would Jesus do? I dont want to lose my Islam... I dont love the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)

Astagfirullah..Astagfirullah.. Brother,Aisha {R.A} was Married with Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h} when she was 9 years old but she came to live with Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h},she was 12 years old or some say that she was 15.. Brother,she had gained the age of puberty and she had understood all the things when she came to live with Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h}.. Also,It was the will of Allah {S.w.t} as Narrated 'Aisha {R.Anha}: Prophet {P.b.u.h} said to her,"You have been shown to me twice in my dream. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and some-one said (to me). 'This is your wife.'When I uncovered the picture, I saw that it was yours. I said, 'If this is from Allah,it will be done." {Bukhari ::Volume 5:: Book 58 ::}

Pedophile also spelled as PEDOPHILIA is a pyschosexual disorder in which an adult's arousal or sexual gratification occur primiraly through sexual contact with prepubescent children.. Does the Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h} fit theabove criteria of a pedophile? With the above criteria ofa paedophile in mind,lets analyse the lifestyle of the Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h} and his marriages. His marriages: Name of Bride and Bride'sage at marriage: 1.Khadija bint khawilad {R.A} Age 40 {Twice widowed before} 2.Sauda Bint Zama<r.a> Age 50 {Widow} 3.Aisha bint Abu Bakr {R.A} Age 9 but Started living with the Prophet Muhammad {P.b.u.h} at theage of 12 or 15. 4.Hafsa Bint Umar bin Khattab {R.A} Age 22 {Widow}. 5.Zainab bint Khuzaima {R.A} Age 30. 6.Umm-I-Salma bint Abu Umayia {R.A} Age 26 {Widow} 7.Zainab Bint Jahash {R.A}Age 38 (Widow) 8.Juwaeria Bint Harith {R.A} Age 20 [Widow] 9.Umm-I-Habiba bint Abu Sufyan {R.A} Age 36|Widow| 10.Marya Qibtiya bint Shamun {R.A} Age 17 Safia bint Hayi bin Akhtab {R.A} Age 17 {Widow}. 11.Raihana bint Umru bin hanafa {R.A} 12.Maimuna bint harith|R.A| Age 36 {widow} Statistics from the above table: Percentage of his wives who were 17 years and older = 91 % Percentage of his wives who were widows = 75% The statistics show that the Prophet's marriage toAisha {R.A} at her young age was an exception and not a norm of his other marriages. Furthermore"a paedophile's main mode of sexual satisfaction is with prepubescent girls", which is contradictory to the 91% of prophet'smarriage to women 17 years and over. An unbiased examination of Prophet's life and his marriages to his wives blatantly rejects the notion of his lifestyle fitting that of a pedophile. All his brides were aged widows (except Aisha {R.A} and Marya <r.a>). Moreover, according to the criteria in the references cited abovein Synopsis of Psychiatry, avast majority of pedophiles possess a history of exhibitionism, voyeurism, or rape. Again, there is no single reference from either religious or secular sources that the noble Prophet ever indulged in such sadistic behavior (God forbid). This truth is observed and acceptedbyboth Muslims and unbiased non-Muslims scholars.
