A hadith (/ˈhædɪθ/ or /hɑːˈdiːθ/; Arabic: حديث ḥadīth, plural: ahadith, أحاديث, ʼaḥādīth) is one of various reports describing the words, actions, or habits of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The term comes from Arabic meaning a "report", "account" or "narrative". Hadith are second only to the Quran in developing Islamic jurisprudence, and regarded as important tools for understanding the Quran and commentaries (tafsir) written on it. Some important elements of traditional Islam, such as the five salat prayers, are mentioned in hadith. The hadith literature is based on spoken reports that were in circulation in society after the death of Muhammad. Unlike the Qur'an the hadiths were not quickly and concisely compiled during and immediately after Muhammad's life. Hadith were evaluated and gathered into large collections during the 8th and 9th centuries, generations after the death of Muhammad, after the end of the era of the "rightful" Rashidun Caliphate, over 1,000 km (620 mi) from where Muhammad lived.
That Aisha possessed all these qualities and carried out this mission is an absolutely positive and undeniable, historical fact. After the Holy Prophet’s death, she acted as a teacher and interpreter of Islam, providing guidance to even the greatest of the male Companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. They made a special point of going to her to gain knowledge and seek her opinion. A vast number of sayings and actions of the Holy Prophet are reported from her in books of Hadith. She not only quoted his sayings and reported her observations of events, but interpreted them to provide solutions to questions. Whenever necessary, she corrected the views of the greatest of the Companions of the Holy Prophet. She made rulings and judgments on which Islamic law is based.
“Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed [alone] for two years or so. He married Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated that marriage when she was nine years old.”

Here's another gem from the "religion of peace".
This is the exact kind of sick mentality that Islam promotes, and the kind of mentality that becomes law when Muslims are allowed to rule.
Girls as young as nine are “physically and spiritually” ready for marriage, a Malaysian MP says
“They reach puberty at the age of nine or 12. And at that time, their body is already akin to them being 18 years old.
He went on to say there is “nothing wrong” with a rape victim marrying the man who raped her, as doing so would allow her to avoid a “bleak future."... ...She will have a husband, at least, and this could serve as a remedy
Under Islamic law, children younger than 16 can get married
Only 140 of the 12,987 cases of child sexual abuse cases reported to authorities between 2012 and July 2016 resulted in convictions.
How does anyone in modern society support Islam, when it allows for children to be raped and married? How does anyone support a religion that doesn't consider women to be equal to men, a religion that in many countries doesn't even recognize rape as a crime, and punishes women for it? What kind of sick religion tells women that if a man rapes them, she should marry her rapist so she can be happy?
This is what happens when Muslims run the country. Look at the middle east... Women literally get arrested for being raped.
There's no way around it and no excuse - Islam is the enemy of any modern, free, respectful civilization. Pedophilia and rape are NEVER ok.
I wish. I feel there should be a one world "religion," (for lack of a better word) that just teaches people, "look at the stars, aren't they beautiful? We don't know where we come from. We all do, however, end up at before where we began. Let us leave it at that."

Would it not be simpler to get rid of religion ?
Since religious folk cannot be trusted, and that includes all religions we just abolish it, that way people cannot use religion to do despicable things under the safety of their chosen cult.
People are simply reprimanded for what they do.
Can you honestly not see what discrediting a Hadith does to the credibility of everything?

Worldly view huh?
Quite simply, you are cherry picking and using Taqiya to try to advance Islam.

You have no idea about hadith studies, and I'm not interested in giving you a crash course.
Reading from sites like "answering Islam" doesn't make you a scholar.
Saudi Arabia’s religious leader, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al Asheikh, has said that he does not plan to restrict the minimum age for marriage for women to 15 years, contravening a recent proposal from the country’s Ministry of Justice. In an interview with the Al Riyadh, reported by the Saudi Gazette, the Grand Mufti described the marriage of girls below that age as “permissible”.

Female circumcision is not mentioned anywhere in the Koran.
Female circumcision is not allowed according to the Koran.
Some Christians practice it
Muslim wife beaters are driven by the same factors that drive Christian or Buddhist wife beaters
You're the one that's ignorant.
In other parts of their article IslamQA cite alternative reports on when Asma was born (ten, six or five years before the prophet's mission began.
Using inaccurate data and an unreliable narrator, Amjad assumes Asma was older than Aisha by 10 years when a more reliable source says the age difference is up to 19 years. Taking this more reliable information calculates Aisha’s age at around nine years old at the time of her consummation even if we grant the traditional date of Asma's own birth, completely in accordance with the sahih hadiths where Aisha herself said she was nine years old.
Further, the Jews who gave your old testament admit that Allah is God
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
1 John 2:22-24
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." Suras 9 and 5 are the last major chapters that Muhammad narrated - hence abrogating what came before, including the oft-quoted verse 2:256 -"There is no compulsion in religion...".
Sahih Muslim (1:33) The Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish prayer and pay zakat." To be safe, people must profess faith in Allah (the shahada) and follow Islamic practices (the zakat and salat). Violence is thus sanctioned until the victims embrace Muhammad's religion and become obedient, practicing Muslims.
11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

And like I already said 6year old and 9 at consummation, they use the lunar calendar, which made Aisha 51/2 at marriage and approx. 8 at consummation in solar years.
The German government agreed on a proposal Wednesday to outlaw child marriages after finding more than 1,500 cases of immigrant minors having adult spouses.
The Central Register of Foreign Nationals has documented a surge in child marriages in recent years. As of July 2016, 1,500 minors of non-German background were registered as married, including 361 under the age of 14.
The largest group of child brides, 664 minors, come from Syria followed by Afghanistan and Iraq.
“Children do not belong at the wedding altar, they belong in school,” Justice Minister Heiko Maas said Wednesday. “We cannot tolerate any marriages that might harm the natural development of minors.”

But again you have it all wrong. You cannot compare the marriage of a sworn Temple Virgin who was to remain a virgin and did not consumate the marriage
Mohammed did have sex with her and she was 9. That is what the Hadith states.

The issue here is that Mary was only 12 when she was engaged to a 90 year old Joseph. This is not a Muslim claim. This is what early Christians believed about the ages of Mary and Joseph. The early church fathers also believed the same thing.
This article refutes the claim that Joseph, the husband of Mary (the mother of Jesus Christ), was a pedophile, a popular yet erroneous tu quoque argument used to defend Prophet Muhammad's pedophilic marriage to Aisha.
WikiIslam Joseph the Pedophile?
