If you take the time to study a little bit about the history of the tribes in South America, Middle East, Africa, India and the far eastern Oriental
countries 1400 years ago, you would find that many tribes even until today allow the marriage of females at a very young age.
Do you think it is fair for you to come today and attack our beloved Prophet and call him a child molester when nobody 1400 years ago from his tribe
had objected to his marriage? Not even the Pagans of Mecca, nor the Jews and Christians of Medina ever objected to it or used it as a point against
Islam as anti-Islamic do today.
We all need to understand the culture that we are talking about. Life in the Middle East is a very simple one. It is a lot simpler than what our brain
can imagine, because the simplest to us here in England may be a very difficult or complicated thing to them in the Middle East especially for those
folks who live in tribes in the rural areas where they don't have TV, electricity, or any electrical equipment. They live on natural water and
survive on what they have available from fruits, vegetables and animals as food.
Okay, lets have a look at the psyche of a typical pedophile, and see how much of it fits Muhammad shall we? Quoted text is taken from
Understanding the Pedophile Psyche, courtesy of the Police Federation of England & Wales:
"Low self esteem. Many pedophiles, although by no means all, do not have a great sense of capacity for adopting a sexual demeanor towards adults or
those of their own age or older. They feel unhappy and fearful at the prospect of sexual behaviour with adults and hence turn to children due to the
fact that they are unable to have the strength of personality to seek adults for sexual demeanor. When considering treatment therefore it is important
to establish and develop a higher sense of self-esteem in such individuals."
-As well as being married to Aisha, he was also married to many other women during his life. He wasn't certainly suffering from low self-esteem.
Therefore, this does not apply to Muhammad.
"Lack of impulse control. Many pedophiles find it extremely difficult to deal with the impulsive nature which inclines them towards sexual behaviour
to children. They simply cannot control their need for engaging children in sexual practices. They might be said to suffer from an
obsessive-compulsive condition. Here again treatment would involve developing better impulse control and of course redirecting the sexual
-As has been mentioned before, Muhammad waited for at least two years before consummating the marriage. Therefore, this point of 'lack of self
control' does not apply to Muhammad. Also, fasting during Ramadan requires abstention from sexual relations. Why would Muhammad practise this if he
had no self-control?
"Denial. Many pedophiles deny there is anything wrong with having sexual relations with children and many will in due course paradoxically deny
having carried out such practices should they be confronted. It is vital to change the attitudes of such individuals much as in the lack of empathy
with their victim."
-Muhammad never once denied having sex with his wife. Also note the use of the term 'victim'. Aisha could not be described as a victim. Therefore,
this does not apply to Muhammad.
"History of previous pedophile activity. Many pedophiles have carried out minor or major acts of pedophile behaviour in the past and this has led to
habit as well as the obsessive-compulsive nature of the act towards children. It is vital here to promote alternative habits i.e. in attitudes and
demeanor of sexual behaviour with adults."
-Muhammad has no history of pedophile activity whatsoever. Also, as I pointed out, all of Muhammad's other wives were adult, and there is no evidence
of him being obsessed with children. Therefore, this doesn't apply to Muhammad.
