the 6 yr old story again

Reader comment on item: Stop the NYC Madrassa
in response to reader comment: 'Ai'sha and Muhammad!

Submitted by razin (Libya), Sep 4, 2007 at 14:47

the age of Aisha at the time of her marrige was about 16 -19 yr not 6yr as widly veiwd even in some islamic countries

it is known that the the Hadith (the history passage the said 6yr is regarded by Muslim and Bokhari as most likly to be false due to an unknown name in the passage)

on the other hand another passage tells that she guided somone to the house in wich the Prophet was at that time (not his house) when asked to do so by her father (an action which at least mean than she can walk around the city of maca ) if the 6yr passage was true then she did that at the age of one year old!

another passage tell of her age at the time of death making her at least 10 yr older than she would if she married at the age of 6

any way this story has been celebrated by christian as a sign of immorality + the tale of 22 wives when they were in fact 12 ,9 of them at the same time. and if you say that this is wrong and immoral plz say the same thing about king solomon if you can (i advise you not to)

love and good bye
