Submitted by sTs (United Arab Emirates), May 16, 2008 at 12:37

1) The narration is not by Mohammad, but by Aysha

2) The Bukhari reference number is 3842 not 4783

3) History tell us that when Mohammad died, Aysha was 17 and few months years old

4) History tell us that Aysha stayed with him 9 years

5) That make her age at 9 years of age

6) I know from the news recently that girls of 9 can conceive babies

7) Since your name suggest you are an Arab, you know that the Muslim traditions that a man will not fall on his woman before marriage ceremony and when a woman gets married (Kitab) the husband sometimes take years before he make he falls on his wife

8) This means if Mohammad asked her father for marriage, he waited until she became 10 before he married her. Because she stayed with the Prophet 8 years

9) In the same narration aysha said she was given to Mohammad when she was 9 years of age.

why Mohammad married her, for many reasons

1) Because it was an order from God

2) To please her father, his best friend

3) To set example to the people that they can marry young girls as well as old women as he did – his wives were in their 80s, 60s, 40s, 20s, and aysha

4) Because she was young and she can memories very good and because she lived after him 42 years and she was a reference for all matters life and religion

5) She narrated over 3000 hadiths and deeds of Mohammad

6) She memorized the Quran by Heart and she was a reference when Othman standardized the Quran.

7) Her virtues are countless

Maturity

1) Read history and see how mature women were on those days

2) See now in Africa how the girl of 10 become a woman

3) See in India and many asian countries how little girls marry old men until now

Don't be ignorant, and parrot of the west - READ
