A six year old was sure helpless.
The age is disputed as shown by number of articles in these
NG's. If this marriage was not successfull or if Aisha was not
happy then she sure would not have been called umm-ul-momeneen
(Mother of the believers) plus she would not have contributed
so much in the cause of Islam. She certainly would not have
been in the forefront of early Islam if she was abused,
helpless or forced into marriage.
ho ho ho. now articles in NGs is considered as proof, but when we show proof
in proislam site where it is openly acknowledged that ayesha was 6 yrs old
mofi mohd married her and 9 yrs when her vagina was penetrated
by that bastard, it immediately becomes a source of suspicion.
Are you stupid or what?
The proof is not those "articles on NGs", but rather the
reasoning exposed on them.
If you cared to read any of those, you would know that other
Hadiths contradict the 6 and 9 y.o. claims, and more sound and
redundant evidence point to Aysha marrying Mohammed at 17 or 19
y.o. In any case, Hadiths are not the word of God, but writings
of men by default. They are not historical evidence of anything
whatsoever, either. To blindly believe on them would be to take
as historical truth the diary of some 19th century Balmoral
Castle servant, who wrote down that Queen Victoria was, in fact,
The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the
most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of
pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to
accept that the Holy Prophet married Aisha when she was 6-years-old
and consummated his marriage with her when she was 9. He was then,
54 years old.
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah's Apostle (may
peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was
admitted to his house when I was nine years old.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he
consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she
remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he
I have been informed that 'Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine
years (i.e. till his death)." what you know of the Quran (by
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88
The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was
six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was
nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till
Some Muslims claim that it was Abu Bakr who approached Muhammad
asking him to marry his daughter. This is of course not true and
here is the proof.
Sahih Bukhari 7.18
The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr
said "But I am your brother." The Prophet said, "You are my brother
in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me
Arabs were a primitive lot with little rules to abide. Yet they had
some code of ethics that they honored scrupulously. For example,
although they fought all the year round, they abstained from
hostilities during certain holy months of the year. They also
considered Mecca to be a holy city and did not make war against it.
A adopted son's wife was deemed to be a daughter in law and they
would not marry her. Also it was customary that close friends made
a pact of brotherhood and considered each other as true brothers.
The Prophet disregarded all of these rules anytime they stood
between him and his interests or whims.
Abu Bakr and Muhammad had pledged to each other to be brothers. So
according to their costoms Ayesha was supposed to be like a niece
to the Holy Prophet. Yet that did not stop him to ask her hand even
when she was only six years old.
But this moral relativist Prophet would use the same excuse to
reject a woman he did not like.
Sahih Bukhari V.7, B62, N. 37
It was said to the Prophet, "Won't you marry the daughter of
Hamza?" He said, "She is my foster niece (brother's daughter). "
Hamza and Abu Bakr both were the foster brothers of Muhammad. But
Ayesha must have been too pretty for the Prophet to abide by the
codes of ethics and custom.
In the following Hadith he confided to Ahesha that he had dreamed of
her before soliciting her from her father.
Sahih Bukhari 9.140
Allah's Apostle said to me, "You were shown to me twice (in my
dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a
silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, 'Uncover (her),' and
behold, it was you. I said (to myself), 'If this is from Allah,
then it must happen.' Then you were shown to me, the angel carrying
you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said (to him), 'Uncover
(her), and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), 'If this is from
Allah, then it must happen.' "
Whether Muhammad had actually such dream or he just said it to
please Ayesha is not the point. What matters here is that it
indicates that Ayesaha was a baby being "carried" by an angel when
the Prophet dreamed of her.
There are numerous hadithes that explicitly reveal the age of
Ayesha at the time of her marriage. Here are some of them.
Sahih Bukhari 5.236.
Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He
stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when
she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage
when she was nine years old.
Sahih Bukhari 5.234
The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to
Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I
got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my
mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with
some of my girl friends. 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 became Allright, 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 Ansari women who said, "Best wishes and
Allah's Blessing and a good luck." Then she entrusted me to them
and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah's
Apostle 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.
And in another Hadith we read.
Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 41, Number 4915, also Number 4916 and
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) married me when I was
seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. according to
Bishr's version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They
took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to
the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), and he took up
cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door,
and I burst into laughter.
In the above hadith we read that Ayesha was swinging, This is a
play of little girls not grown up people. The following Hadith is
particularly interesting because it shows that Ayesha was so small
that was not aware what was going on when the Holy Prophet
"surprised" her by going to her.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 90
When the Prophet married me, my mother came to me and made me enter
the house (of the Prophet) and nothing surprised me but the coming
of Allah's Apostle to me in the forenoon.
Must have been quite a surprise! But the following is also
interesting because it demonstrates that she was just a kid playing
with her dolls. Pay attention to what the interpreter wrote in the
parenthesis. (She was a little girl, not yet reached the age of
Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151
I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and
my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah's Apostle
used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but
the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing
with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed
for 'Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached
the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)
Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle
(may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old,
and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her
dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was
eighteen years old.
The holy Prophet died when he was 63. So he must have married
Ayesha when he as 51 and went to her when he was 54.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 33
I never felt so jealous of any woman as I did of Khadija, though
she had died three years before the Prophet married me, and that
was because I heard him mentioning her too often, and because his
Lord had ordered him to give her the glad tidings that she would
have a palace in Paradise, made of Qasab and because he used to
slaughter a sheep and distribute its meat among her friends.
Khadija died in December of 619 AD. That is two years before Hijra.
At that time the Prophet was 51-years-old. So in the same year that
Khadija died the prophet married Ayesha and took her to his home 3
years later, i.e. one year after Hijra. But until she grow up he
married Umm Salama.
In another part Ayesha claims that as long as she remembers her
parents were always Muslims.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 245
(the wife of the Prophet) I never remembered my parents believing
in any religion other than the true religion (i.e. Islam),
If Ayesha was older i.e. 16 or 18 as some Muslims claim, she would
have remembered the religion of her parents prior to becoming
Now someone may still claim that all these hadithes are lies.
People are free to say whatever they want. But truth is clear like
the Sun for those who have eyes.
No sane person would be aroused by a 9-year-old child. Decent
people wince at the thought of this shameful act. Yet some Muslims
deny them. The question is why so many followers of Muhammad would
fabricate so many false hadithes about the age of Ayisha, which
incidentally confirm each other?

becomes a dispute. Which basically means that we should not only look
