Just a comment on the marriage of Aeisha r.a. and the Prophet Saw. It is ignorant of the author to point this out without taking things into context.

1. This was 14,000 years ago, where marriage between adults and "children" was a norm (a nine year old girl who had undergone her menses was NO LONGER A CHILD< SHE WAS CLASSIFIED AS A WOMAN, capable of bearing children.

2. The marriage was fully consented by the father of Aeisha, and later, by Aeisha. She was the youngest wife who passed on thousands of hadiths after the death of the prophet, on NO OCCASSION DID SHE SAY A SINGLE BAD WORD ABOUT HIM, the marriage at that time was legitamate and according to 4th century arabia, it was completely acceptable.

3. The people of His (saw) would try to find any excuse to put the prophet's reputation down, never did they comment on the marriage of Aeisha and the prophet, why?? because, it was a norm at that time.

4. The prophet saw died in Aeisha's lap , if this was an abusive relationship, clearly, this would not have occured.

5. Today's marrital age and laws have changed, girls are still playing around with dolls at the age of nine, they are getting their periods later and developing later? why? environmental factors and social factors e.g. 14, 000 years ago, in Arabia, girls at the age of nine were cooking, cleaning, helping out their mums, some were married, some were looking after children, nowadays, we classify our 9 year olds as a baby.

6. The legal age for marriage varies between country and races, In china, the legal age used to be 16, in Australia, its 18, In America...21?? In Islam, there is no age limitation at which a girl can get married, a girl becomes a women, when she reaches puberty, this is sufficient. Ofcourse, times have changed, and marriages at such a young age in most countries no longer take place, but the legal requirement is mensus for a girl to be a woman.

So, if you consider the above factors, your comments really are very ignorant. I do have to agree with you though on some things, you are right, we muslims are not practising what we preach, we have a lot of problems, and dictatorship and lack of leadership is one them. I grew up in the west, I do have to say, that if we muslims can practise democrasy in its pure form, I think, we would have a lot of our problems resolved.

With regards, to Pakistan being the number 1 country in search if porn material, well, as disgusting as it is, it really doesn't surprise me. I lived there for two years, and as an 8 year old I don't remember a single day without having some ugly pervert ogling me or other girls...these men are sick, this is a sickness from their own hearts and has nothing to do with ISLAM. You have to learn to distinguise between our stupid actions as muslims as opposed to the religion ISLAM. Peace.
