'a'isha reported that she used to PLAY WITH DOLLS the presence of Allah's Messenger when her playmates came to her they left (the house) because they felt shy of Allah's Messenger whereas Allah's Messenger sent them to her (Sahih Muslim Book 031 Number 5981) When the Apostle of Allah arrived after the expedition to Tabuk or Khaybar (the narrator is doubtful) the draught raised an end of a curta which was hung front of her store-room revealg some dolls which belonged to her He asked: What is this?

To beg with puberty does not beg with a girl's menarche It begs about a year or two earlier Islam missed the mark on this Islam considers that puberty adulthood beg with the menarche Further science teaches that puberty does not end with menarche It takes at least 2 more years for a child to sexually mature Islam also missed the mark on this end Science shows that usually the female body still has a ways to go from the time a girl has her menarche to the time she is sexually able to reproduce or is considered to have an adult body Science further documents that there are times when a child may have "precocious puberty" have menarche as early as age 8 This is usually due to a dysfunction or disorder with the child PUBERTY MENARCHE REPRODUCTION Pity Robert Squires He has put his heart his md his strength his reputation deed his very soul to defendg his prophet Muhammad He built his defense upon the assumption that Aisha had menstruated Now he faces the ugly fact that Muhammad has deed done the dirty deed made a fool out of him Muhammad has gone to a depth of depravity that Squires rejects as wrong Squires beloved Muhammad was deed an ugly man havg sex with a child Squires is stuck havg to confront the naked truth By Squires own stards by Squires own reasong by Squires own sense of right wrong Muhammad did very wrong above all weep for the Muslim children who are allowed by their faith to be used for sex Later Ill mention some studies writgs that show that when children are put to the situation that Muhammad Islam allow they deed suffer Islam brgs misery upon its female children Enter your mobile number or email address below we'll send you a lk to download the free Kdle App Then you can start readg Kdle books on your smartphone tablet or computer - no Kdle device required "some time after the death of Khadija Khawla suggested to Muhammad that he should marry either Aisha the 6 year old daughter of his chief follower or Sawda Zama a widow of about 30 who had gone as a Muslim to Abyssia whose husb had died there Muhammad is said to have asked her to arrange for him to marry both It had already been agreed that Aisha should marry Djubayr Mutim whose father though still pagan was friendly to the Muslims By common consent however this agreement was set aside Muhammad was betrothed to Aisha The was not consummated until some months after the Hidjra ( April 623 624) Aisha went to live an apartment Muhammad's house later the mosque of Median She cannot have been more than ten years old at the time took her toys to her new home." SUMMARY OF THE EVIDENCE OF AISHA'S AGE Lets take a deeper look Why do we fd it objectionable? Muhammad did not live our culture or under our law Is the Western rejection of this practice merely cultural or is there a scientific or medical reason to reject Muhammads Islams norm? deed there are medical scientific reasons to reject Islams position If Islam were truly a scientific faith it would not have erred this greatly This question is discussed at length Appendix 4 As mentioned earlier some Muslims Western writers have written that Aisha did not have sex with Muhammad until she was 14 or so I've never seen any textual support for their position They only have opion conjecture Sce the thought of their prophet committg such an act is embarrassg to them so they vent or re-write or ignore documented Islamic history to make it more acceptable to their mds the mds of other Western people as well A.

Now that weve established that Islam allows husbs to engage sex with their child-brides lets move on to Muhammad Aisha The Islamic source materials state that Aisha was 9 when they consummated their From the hadith of Bukhari volume 5 #234 Most Muslims accept what the Hadith Sira Muslim scholars say: Muhammad consummated his to Aisha when she was 9 But many defend this by assertg that Aisha had had her first period thus she entered puberty thus was considered an adult Somehow theyve been misled to believg that Aisha had her first menses before she consummated her with Muhammad These same Muslims criticize the act of sexual tercourse with a girl who had not had her first menses They would say that a man would be havg sex with a child that that was wrong But as shown above if one studies Islams teachgs he will see that Islam allows sexual tercourse prior to the childs first menses Tragically today throughout much of the Mideast girls as young as ne are often married by men old enough to be their grfather just as Muhammad was old enough to be Aishas grfather.

Page formation: /.html Last modified 2016 Dec 15 Thu 22:41 PST Pujiono reportedly married Lutfiana as his second wife August has declared he plans to marry two even younger girls -- a seven-year-old a ne-year old The "eccentric" cleric refused to name the children out of concern it would spark "wider criticism" "Puji is a community leader who has many followers If he is allowed to contue dog this we're afraid that many other people will follow suit This will victimize children," he said addg that mors are neither physically nor mentally ready to engage sexual activity. Weve seen that Islamic doctre allows for prepubescent children to be engaged tercourse that Aisha was 9 when Muhammad had sex with her for the first time Now well look at the evidence see that Aisha was prepubescent when Muhammad had sex with her The hadith state that Aisha was taken to Muhammads house as his bride when she was 9 she took her dolls with her as play toys Ill borrow some excerpts from Sams article here: 'A'isha reported that Allah's Apostle married her when she was seven years old he was taken to his house AS A BRIDE WHEN SHE WAS NE HER DOLLS WERE WITH HER; when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old (Sahih Muslim Book 008 Number 3311) Page 22: "Puberty derives from the Lat word "pubertas" which means "adult" Technically the term refers to the period durg which an dividual becomes capable of sexual reproduction that is it denotes the series of biological changes leadg up to reproductive capability More broadly speakg however puberty is used as a collective term to refer to all the physical changes that occur the growg girl or boy as the dividual passes from childhood to adulthood." page 23: "Puberty may appear to be rather sudden judgg from its external signs but fact it is part of a gradual process that begs at conception (Petersen Taylor 1980) You may be surprised to learn that no new hormones are produced no new bodily systems develop at puberty Rather some hormones that have been present sce before birth crease other decrease." This creases the weight scope of my argument places Muhammad Islam a far darker more disreputable light Many Muslims dont know this by their own stards Muhammad did the wrong thg havg sex with a child Muslims have to answer for their contued support for Muhammad because he transgresses their stards When children are allowed to be used for sex then that is sexual exploitation; so why do they support the creator establishment of a system that entrenches the abuse sexual exploitation of children? I am not tryg to use cheap polemics Surely you realize that for children there are paful ramifications behd Muhammads action They need to be discussed detail context It might be offensive to some but it needs to be discussed CONTENTS Even the Mishnah the age of maturity for a female is 12.5 years: "she won her case court before she matured [at the age of twelve years six months] lo they belong to the father." Mishnah Ketubot 4:1 Jewish culture allowed young girls to be married at an early age but not as young as 9 _____________________________________________________________________ APPENDIX 3: SCIENCE PUBERTY How do the biological sciences address the topic of female puberty? Here are quotes from several college level text books There is a great deal of fo presented but it is necessary to provide scientific details to fully underst puberty From "Adolescence" by L Steberg pub by McGraw. Page 26: "The effects of the endocrological changes of puberty on the adolescent's body are remarkable Consider the dramatic changes physical appearance that occur durg the short span of early adolescence One enters puberty lookg like a child with FOUR years or so has the physical appearance of a young adult." page 32: [This page shows a chart depictg that puberty lasts about 4 years girls] "Generally full reproduction function does not occur until several years after menarche regular ovulation follows menarche by about two years (Hafetz 1976) Narrated 'Ubaid b 'Umar: I heard 'Aisha sayg "The Prophet used to stay for a long while with Zanab bt Jahsh drk honey at her house So Hafsa I decided that if the Prophet came to anyone of us she should say him "I detect the smell of Maghafir (a nasty smellg gum) you Have you eaten Maghafir?' " So the Prophet visited one of them she said to him similarly The Prophet said "Never md I have taken some honey at the house of Zaab bt Jahsh but I shall never drk of it anymore." So there was revealed: 'O Prophet ! Why do you ban (for you) that which Allah has made lawful for you If you two (wives of Prophet) turn repentance to Allah,' (66.1-4) addressg Aisha Hafsa 'When the Prophet disclosed a matter confidence to some of his wives.' (66.3) namely his sayg: But I have taken some honey." "low-Birthweight babies may have organs that are not fully developed This can lead to lung problems such as respiratory distress syndrome or bleedg the bra." "Low-birthweight babies are 40 times more likely to die their first month of life than normal-weight babies." FROM THE UNITED NATIONS (*) NOTE: The webpage I obtaed this from was particularly gruesome to read Some sections that did not perta to this topic (like female genital circumcision a practice found throughout the Islamic world taught by one of the 4 major schools of Islamic theology) I could not fish readg myself It was just too gross Do not read it if you have a weak stomach or are disturbed by reports about women abused this paper I have tried to edit out gruesome details that were not necessary. Narrated Al-Hasan: (Al-Ahnaf said:) I went out carryg my arms durg the nights of the affliction (i.e the war between 'Ali 'Aisha) Abu Bakra met me asked "Where are you gog?" I replied "I tend to help the cous of Allah's Apostle (i.e 'Ali)." Abu Bakra said "Allah's Apostle said 'If two Muslims take out their swords to fight each other then both of them will be from amongst the people of the Hell-Fire.' It was said to the Prophet 'It is all right for the killer but what about the killed one?' He replied 'The killed one had the tention to kill his opponent.'" : A Muslim scholar says that it is okay for Aisha ( other children) to play with dolls because they are not considered adults: Al-Khattaabee said: From this Hadeeth it is understood that playg with dolls (al-banaat) is not like the amusement from other images (suwar) concerng which the threat (wa'eed) of punishment is mentioned The only reason why permission this was to 'Aa'isha (may Allah be pleased with her) is because SHE HAD NOT AT THAT TIME REACHED THE AGE OF PUBERTY (Source) It is only with the third phase puberty that girls develop regular ovulatory menstrual cycles the capability for procreation This period generally spans about two years for girls about three years for boys endg when all of the secondary sex characteristics have fully appeared reproductive ability has been reached Most boys are well to puberty by age 14 (Marshall 1975) most girls by the age of 15-16." page 108: " the gradual decrease the average age at which menarche has been occurrg among Western European girls apparently among girls of the United States Canada as well (Botste & McArthus 1976) The fact that research has dicated that this trend is just as evident among girls temperate climates as among girls warm climates would also tend to destroy the myth that girls mature earlier warm climates than more moderate ones." All those volved the case he said could be charged under Articles 81 82 83 of the 2002 Law on Child Protection If found guilty they would face a maximum sentence of 15 years jail a fe of Rp 300 million (US$30,000) for "forcg" "swdlg" /or "tradg" a mor to sleep with another person Hadi said it would require a psychological test to prove whether the cleric could be termed a pedophile "We hope the police or the court if the case is brought to trial can determe this,". Muhammad THE GOOD EXAMPLE? Muhammad claimed greatness: his god praised Muhammad the Quran: "Surely the Messenger of God you have a good example" 33:21 But when we exame what he did we repudiate it He was not "a good example." Let me ask you a question: If Muhammad were livg the West today did what he did wouldnt he be thrown jail denounced as a pervert? Yes or no? I thank God that our stards are better than his those of Islam when it comes to protectg children If Muhammad were a true prophet why are the worlds stards better than his? Why are pagan cultures stards better than Islams? Where was the mercy or benefit for the children. By Silas NOTE I needed to edit correct this article because Ive learned some new details itially I believed what many Muslims asserted: Muhammad sexually consummated his to the ne year old Aisha followg her first menstruation HOWEVER after readg brother Sam Shamouns articles (1 2) I realized that the Quran the Hadith Muslim scholars writgs state that a Muslim husb can engage sex with a child-bride before she has her first menses Further Muhammad actually did just this he had tercourse with Aisha prior to her first menses! Prepuberty begs at the end of childhood with a rapid rise hormone levels It is also a period which a rapid growth spurt begs the secondary sex characteristics such as the buddg of the breast girls the enlargement of the testes penis boys start to develop Generally girls experience theses changes two years before boys; the average age of onset of this stage is 10 for females 12 for males (Tanner 1975) Pubescence the second stage is characterized by the proliferation of sex cells near completion of the secondary sex characteristics (Thornburg 1975) Pubescence begs with the menarche or first menstruation girls The appearance of these characteristics however does not necessarily dicate that the reproductive system is complete It may be a matter of months or even years before the body is capable of reproduction.

"therefore makg mention of the waitg-period for girls who have not yet menstruated clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl at this age but it is permissible for the husb to consummate with her Now obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thg which the Quran has held as permissible." (Maududi volume 5 p 620 note 13 emphasis added) It is clear: Muslim men can engage sex with prepubescent children! _____________________________________________________________________ 3) EVIDENCE THAT AISHA WAS 9 WHEN SHE CONSUMMATED HER There is a misconception that when a young girl has her first menarche she is capable of gettg pregnant Many primitive cultures believed that a girl can become pregnant followg menarche; Muhammad's culture probably believed this as well However science tells us this is very rare stead the average time for a girl to become pregnant followg menarche is one to two years Clearly then girls are not "mature" followg their menarche There are no biological grounds to marry engage post-menarcheal girls sexual activity; they cannot conceive children yet Puberty does not equal maturity therefore this misconception should not lead to Logically then menarche is not a sign of a female able to bear children Only at the end of puberty can a girl conceive not at the begng not at the middle Puberty usually takes several years to complete _____________________________________________________________________ A child enters the store but a woman emerges veiled on that day of able age Her life changes that split second There are other books I could quote from but the above is enough to illustrate the pot: the legal abuse of children exists the Islamic world today Many of them are coerced either by their fathers family or their familys fancial situation to accept with a man old enough to be their grfather Other girls probably don't even underst what they are gettg to when they are approached to marry a man Female children are valued greatly for their virgity exploited by lustful old men who purchase the girl with a dowry use them for sexual gratification They are left to live as second class people a culture based upon Muhammad's life This is the Islam that Muslims the West don't want to tell you about Rev A: 97-07-10 Rev B: 97-11-24 Rev C: 97-12-10 Rev D: 98-4-1 Rev E: 98-8-8 Rev F: 99-1-1 Rev G: 9/8/01.

Muslims know their heart that it is just pla wrong for a man to be usg a child for sex married or not That is why so many of them have gone to great lengths to defend Muhammads relationship with Aisha because they assumed that she had her first period prior to their sexual consummation One such Muslim is Robert Squires He has gone to great lengths to defend Muhammads action predicated upon the assumption that Aisha had her first menses You can read Robert Squires article here.

Early pregnancy can have harmful consequences for both young mothers their babies Accordg to UNICEF no girl should become pregnant before the age of 18 because she is not yet physically ready to bear children Babies of mothers younger than 18 tend to be born premature have low body weight; such babies are more likely to die the first year of life The risk to the young mother's own health is also greater Poor health is common among digent pregnant lactatg women An additional health risk to young mothers is obstructed labor which occurs when the baby's head is too big for the orifice of the mother This provokes vesicovagal fistulas especially when an untraed traditional birth attendant forces the baby's head out unduly There have been several studies done on females who were married at a very young age then taken to sexual tercourse Followg is a citation from two of them "Sexual contact between children adults: A life course perspective." Browng Christopher R; Laumann Edward O Citation: American Sociological Review v62n4 -560 Aug 1997 Number: 03374356 Features: Table; Illustration; References Copyright: American Sociological Association 1997 The Islamic source materials state that Muhammad proposed to Aisha when she was 6 He assumed her silence constituted her consent Some 2 to 3 years later just after he had fled to Meda he consummated his with her He was 52 she was 9 This occurred prior to Aishas first menses by Islams legal defition Aisha was still considered a child Islam teaches that a child enters adulthood at the begng of puberty (This is scientifically accurate the onset of puberty does not equal adulthood see Appendix 3) The bottom le is Muhammad the creator of Islam revered by his followers had sex with a child! Worse Muhammad's action teachgs on established an Islamic precedent Islamic law allows female children to be married off engaged sex provided they are able to hle a mans penis (Quran 65:4) As will be shown this leads to physical psychological damage to the child Those leadership donesia recognize this for what it is: children victimized that they are not ready mentally or physically to be engagg sex It is fortunate that the Muslims donesia are better touch with reality science than the Muslim leadership the Mideast The donesia Muslims are more carg for their children the most vulnerable their society stead of copyg Muhammad stupidly they looked after the welfare of their children this case _____________________________________________________________________ 6) CONCLUSION " Improvements prenatal care have resulted decreases medical complications among babies born to teenage mothers but mothers aged 14 years younger contue to experience unacceptably high rates of adverse outcomes The most significant medical risks for fants of teenage mothers are likely related to the parental care those fants receive after the first year of life fants born to younger teenage mothers have a higher rate of mortality by their second birthday than fants of older adolescents adults  The cidence of prenatal mortality low birth weight creases with subsequent pregnancies adolescents  The morbidity experienced by the fants of young mothers is more subtle to defe but has been reported to clude creased rates of hospitalization creased risks of accidents poisongs burns superficial juries  1) TRODUCTION Picture this historical settg: A 49 year old man asks his best friend if he could have his permission to marry his 6 year old daughter His friend agrees The man then visits his best friends house speaks with the 6 year old daughter Her parents watch as the he proposes to the child He is serious; he wants to marry the little girl is askg for her consent The little child says nothg; she only stares at him silence.
Was AISHA MATURE ENOUGH TO DECIDE FOR HERSELF? ARE YOUNG GIRLS OLD ENOUGH TO DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES? It is obvious from readg Aisha's accounts the Hadith Tabari's history that she raised no objection Muhammad She wasnt mature enough to underst Muhammads proposal She wasnt mature enough to know what Muhammad was up to when she was sent to the room he had her sit on his lap It all happened so quickly that she didn't know what was gog on This is not surprisg As stated the bra's ability to be maturely cognitive occurs well after age 9 At age 9 Aisha was barely able to comprehend the world around her She knew that Muhammad was someone special she knew that her father loved him Because Aisha raised no objection does not make it right She was too young to truly thk decide for herself. Examg the evidence from the previous sections we see Islam allows sex with prepubescent children who are married Aisha was playg with dolls after she consummated her with Muhammad Under Islams rules female children were allowed to play with dolls because they had not yet entered puberty i.e had their first menses became adults Therefore the only conclusion that can be made is that Muhammad was havg sex with a Aisha while still was a child! The Quran allows this Muhammad did this Aisha stated this the scholars affirm this Now Islams children have to deal with this _____________________________________________________________________ 5) DISCUSSION Al-Tabari said regardg 65:4 The terpretation of the verse " those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses for them the 'Iddah (prescribed period) if you have doubt (about their periods) is three months; for those who have no courses [(i.e they are still immature) their 'Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise" He said: The same applies to the 'idaah for girls who do not menstruate because they are too young if their husbs divorce them after consummatg the with them Tafseer al-Tabari 14/142 (Source: Islam Q&A ( - ) (Question #12708: Is it acceptable to marry a girl who has not yet started her menses?)

The average age at menarche is 12.5 to 13 However some normal girls may beg to menstruate as early as 9 while others may not start until the age of 16 (Offer & Offer 1968) Genital growth is usually not complete when menstruation begs this growth contues slowly for several more years The menarche is frequently followed by a period of sterility which lasts until a regular ovulatory menstrual cycle is established The duration of this period varies considerable; the first ovulation (the discharge of the first egg from the ovaries) may occur at menarche or it may not take place until years later For several months followg the menarche there is usually a lack of regularity the extent timg of the menstrual flow." WHAT ARE THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES TELLG US ABOUT PUBERTY? Generally throughout the developg world the average food take of pregnant lactatg mothers is far below that of the average male Cultural practices cludg nutritional taboos ensure that pregnant women are deprived of essential nutriments as a result they tend to suffer from iron prote deficiencies " So not only does science teach us that young girls are not mature just because they have had first menarche but science teaches us that teen or worse yet pre-teenage girls should not be bearg children Their bodies are not ready for it These type of pregnancies are frequently harmful both to the mother.

_____________________________________________________________________ 2) EVIDENCE THAT ISLAM ALLOWS CHILDREN TO ENGAGE SEX BEFORE MENSTRUATION First we need to establish that Islam allows female children to be married engaged sex prior to their first menses (prepubescent) For that we turn to the Islamic source materials Startg with the Quran: If you are doubt concerng those of your wives who have ceased menstruatg know that their waitg period shall be three months The same shall apply to those who have not menstruated As for pregnant women their term shall end with their confement God will ease the hardship of the man who fears him 65:4 Dawood Brother Sam Shamoun comments on. Here are some quotes from Mr Squires article: Puberty = Maturity = Part of the wisdom behd the Prophet's to Aishah just after she reached puberty is to firmly establish this as a pot of Islamic Law even though it was already cultural norm all Semitic societies There are many other references which should prove to any telligent person what anthropologists historians already know: centuries past people were considered ready for when they reached puberty Unfortunately for Squires if he studies the Islamic source materials if he studies the analysis of the great scholars of Islam he could only conclude that Islam allows sex with prepubescent children that Muhammad had sex with Aisha prior to her first menses Muhammads consummation with Aisha occurred before she reached puberty Muhammad fails Squires "cultural" test.
