Hello AS

All of your speech is due to lack of knowledge of Islam. I want to clarify two things to you.

Muhammad (sws) did not marry his son's wife. Muhammad (sws) did not have any son. The one whom you think of his son was a negro slave of Muhammad (sws) whom he had set free and adopted as son. One thing, be clear, in Islam, adoption cannot change the identity of the parents. I mean, if I adopt a child, I cannot give him my name, only his real father's name will be used as his identity.

Second thing, Muhammad (sws) did not marry a child girl, it is one of the established principle (sunnah) of Prophet that both male and female be mentally and physically mature before they could marry. You will say, hadith says, he married a child girl, but there are also hadiths which contradicts that hadith. Also sunnah takes preference on hadith because hadith comes to us through the narration of few people but sunnah has come to us through the practice of millions of people.

I would like to clarify other things but I don't know much about you, I mean, your willingness or unwillingness to know about Islam.
