Hamza Yusuf Speaks on Aisha's Marriage

The much respected scholar confirms that Aisha was not playing with dolls whilst living with Prophet Muhammad. It is sad to see ignorant people who have deception and malice in their hearts want to distort facts in order to slander Prophet Muhammad and insult Muslims.

Uh, not true:

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

Mr. Silly "God",

If you don't have a solid background in History & Culture of the Arabs then you better keep your mouth shut. Yes, Aisha's marriage was consummated when she was nine and I don't see a problems with this! Why? Because you don't judge an event which took place some 1500 years ago by your modern western values. Aisha's was taken to Muhammad's house when she was nine, it's an established fact that Arab girls usually reach puberty at an early age and back in that times a nine years old girl would be considered mature enough for marriage, so a nine years old girl would be as mature as a girl today would be in her 18's-20's. It was an established norm of the then arab society. Now don't come with silly arguments like why would she be accompanied by dolls if she was indeed mature enough? Well, today you'll have girls studying at Unis having large dolls and in some cases even playing with them.
