Prophet & Pedophile – are they mutually exclusive?

13 February 2013, 09:00

I have seen a few posts on News24 promoting Islam & the Qur’an as the beacon of morality, justice & good in the world. That got me thinking…..

I’ve read the Christian bible and came to the conclusion it is a barbaric book from which I would not want to be taking my moral values! I may cherry pick a few things, but on the whole it is filled with terrible ideas.

So I did a little reading on the Qur’an and It’s Prophet…

Lets put it into today’s context…

Take a look around you; find a little girl between six and nine years old. Now look for a fifty-year-old man, for arguments sake, find a leader in the community, maybe someone who is considered wise. Take a good look at them, imagine them playing with dolls together, getting married and then sleeping together. This surely would be considered pedophilia by today’s standards.

According to the texts Aisha bint Abu Bakr (612 - 678), was married to Mohammed when she was only six years old, the marriage was consummated when she was nine. He was about 50 years old. It has been said that he used to sit and watch her & her friends play with their dolls, and sometimes would join them. (Haykal, Muhammad Husayn. "The Life of Muhammad." North American Trust Publications, 1976, 183-184).

This is not a fabrication meant to insult the prophet, just the truth.

My questions are:

Does the modern Islam support this behavior?

 - If not, when did Allah change his mind about this type of child abuse?

 - If so, is Islam relevant in the 21st century?

Would this be the book for you to use to calibrate your moral compass?
