in response to reader comment: marriage

I think you are forgetting the fact that a lot of the widows were not widows until made so by Mohammed! Did not Mohammed on on occasion murder a young 17yo woman's husband, father, children and then gave her the choice of marrying him or being sold off as a slave? Are you denying this? Do I have to show you where your Muslim forefathers recorded this event? What sort of man does this, murder a woman's family then make her his wife? Or are you going to try and justify this by citing an incident with Eskimos 300 years ago? Why would any Muslim record Mohammed doing such a thing if it is not true? Was not the beautiful 17 yo Safiyah such a victim? Did not Abu Ayyub al Ansari guard the tent the first time Mohammed raped her because he was so worried because Mohammed had murdered her father, husband and children? Why would he be worried if Mohammed was with a loving wife? No Safiyah a young 17 yo woman who had just watched her family brutally murdered, and was being raped by a 57 yo Mohammed. My proof? Volume 4 book 52 number 143 Anas bin Malik narrated Buhkari Book 59 Number 459 Volume 5 Now are you saying a 57 yo 'Mohammed after murdering a young woman's family and making her a widow is being a good person? Then raping her? Do you really think a 17 yo girl who has just been made a widow and had her family destroyed would willingly be with 57 yo murderer of her family? ...
