Hello there ignorant, uneducated, unwilling-to-see-the-light, thinks-they-are-fuuny, anon.
Ok I am going to explain this thoroughly to you in the quickest way possible alright? I have done my research over this, and I have your answer. I even took a whole class over The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) with his marriage to Aysha (ra), and I have read the seerah and books about this. Because yes, I have asked the question ‘What Our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be up on him) married a child?!’
First I would like to point out our environment. Look at where we live and think of when our parents got married. I don’t know about you guys but my mother was 25 when married. Which I guess would be the average age. And my father was 26 and maybe that is a bit young for men. Most marriages are in the time of our prime. It is nearly impossible to become successful at the age of 10 now. You just can’t, you are still in school. You had to be born in success or make it when you are older. Why is this? because now we baby our children and our selves. Life expectancy now is like 10x higher than it was 1400 years ago. So we spoiled our children with comfort and threw them to ‘education’ but not about living your life and actually creating a family and protecting them. So when we graduated college and we finally settle down and think ‘oh let me think of finding a companion’. My point I am making is that today marriage had been delayed about a decade and a half. Or not considered at all. That is why it is seen so strangely to us when others marry very young (to us thats like 16-20). So here is this girl about 6-7 years old getting married to a man whose old enough to be her father. Why is that? Because believe it or not 1400 years ago that was the norm. Life expectancy was like to your forties if you are lucky your fifties. Men at the age of 15 were the wealthiest in their villages and owned some of the biggest businesses. So yeah people were living their lives much earlier than us now. So how did Aysha (ra) agree into marrying Our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)? Because thats what all the girls at her age did. And these are NOT forced child marriages the girls are the ones who choose whom to marry. So she wasn’t raped, She simply got married at a young age.
Non-followers of Islam that were against Our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) who criticized him for everything and said every lie about him, spat every rude remark, and were against his every move. Not one time did they ever question his marriage with Aysha (ra). Why is that? Because they were married to young girls as well. Also Our Prophet ( peace and blessings be upon him) had his first marriage to Khadijah (ra) who was 28 and he was 25. He married converts, born into Islam women, virgins, women who were no longer virgins, divorced women, women whose husbands had passed, women from different countries/tribes/villages. Aysha (ra) just happened to be of the youngest age he married.
Back in medieval times girls were getting married at the age 6 as well and actually had no choice. They were much more developed then we are now, and by the time they were are age they usually were on their 3 or 4th marriage.
So anon, before you start calling out ‘pedophile’ and ‘rape’ figure out the differences of our lives now to how it would’ve been 1400 years ago.
tbh you probably would’ve been beheaded by now just saying…
(btw how can you say loool after all that? if you believed in it and was against it then you wouldn’t laugh at it….)
