Aisha was nineteen years old when Mohamed married her, not nine


Peace be upon you,

As known, whenever the enemies of Islam want to mock Muslims, they use the marriage of Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) from Aisha, who was nine years old, in order to ridicule him and accuse him of raping children. Therefore, I decided to present crystal clear evidence from the Quran and the history that Aisha was at least nineteen years old when the Prophet married her.

Allah commanded a Muslim man not to take back anything from the gifts that he gave to his wife if he wants to divorce her.

•   Quran (4:20) But if you want to replace one wife with another and you have given one of them a great amount [in gifts], do not take [back] from it anything. Would you take it in injustice and manifest sin?

Then Allah said in the next verse that your wife took a solemn covenant from you before you married her. If Mohamed engaged Aisha at the age of six and married her at nine, how can a six or nine year old understand the solemn covenant? This can be possible among intellectually mature people to understand the responsibilities of this covenant.

•   Quran (4:21) And how could you take it while you have gone in unto each other and they have taken from you a solemn covenant?

Allah commanded us in the Quran to test the orphans when they reach the age of marriage, and if you find in them maturity of intellect (rushd), then we release them their money. If Allah sets the condition of maturity in order to give them their money, is it possible that Allah will allow non-mature to marry and have children? And I don't think that a 6 or 9 years old girl has any maturity to make a sound judgment.

•   Quran (4:6) And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgment, release their property to them…
I am sure that I will find Muslims who will criticize what I said and argue that Aisha was mature at the age of six and nine because it was a miracle from Allah. But there is no evidence in the Quran that this statement is true.

The hadith that the Prophet engaged to Aisha at the age of six and married her at the age of nine cannot be true because it contradicts the Quran because Allah forbade marriage before the age of maturity and Allah said in the Quran that the Prophet was of great character, and the hadith says that Mohamed was a Quran walking on earth. This means that he did not violate any commandment of Allah.

•   Quran (68:4) And indeed, you are of a great moral character.

If we read the history of Abu Bakr’s family, Aisha’s age can be easily calculated from the age of her older sister Asma’a, who was ten years older than her. Asma’a was born fourteen years before the Prophet’s mission, and the Prophet migrated to Medina after 13 years, this means she was 27 years old during the migration. This means that Aisha was 17 years old, and the Prophet married Aisha in the second year after the migration (Hijrah), this means that she was nineteen years old at that time and not nine as mentioned in the previous hadiths.


she wasn't 19 :l

Hadiths are rumors, leave them aside. So since this is not mentioned in the Qur'an, don't try in vain to tell her age. Maybe forty years old.

18:21 And as such, We revealed their case so that they would know that the promise of God is true and that there is no doubt regarding the Hour. They argued among themselves regarding them, so they said: "Erect a monument for them!" Their Lord is fully aware of them, those who managed to win the argument said: "We will construct a temple over them."

18:22 They will say: "Three, the fourth is their dog." And they say: "Five, the sixth is their dog," guessing at what they do not know. And they say: "Seven, and the eighth is their dog." Say: "My Lord is fully aware of their number, none know them except for a few." So do not argue regarding them except with proof, and do not seek information regarding them from anyone.

"Hadiths are rumors" ? what ? are you a quranist?
