ISLAM IS A VERY MISUNDERSTOOD RELIGION.

first of all everyone looks at the bad things and all the quote that can be easily misunderstood and takes advantage of them.

second of all, everyone seems to use the fact that mohammed (pbuh) married a nine year old as well as another eight wives, but nobody looks behind that, the fact is that he married them to prevent adultery happening to them. And everyone assumes that he DEFINITELY had s-e-x with them, but there is absolutely NO proof. All of his children were with his first wife so how do people know that he married the other eight to 'take advantage' of them?

third point, the world is changing so drastically, for example, 100 years ago bi-sexual,gay and lesbian people were hated despised often killed and now they're fine and accepted so how do we know that in the future, marriages with people way younger than you and more than one marriage per per person, wont be common?

so please do not just take little parts without seeing the full story and thinking about it. if i wanted, i could have spoke bad of Jesus, but i dont want to because i respect him ALOT and love him ALOT even though i am a muslim.

i was looking through this as i was doing some research for homework and i was embarrassed to see my my fellow people from my generation speak like this to gain superiority. we are more than that. Here i am a 14 year old girl having to spend my time writing this instead of doing my homework.
