The Prophet Muhammad(saw)’s Marriage to Aisha

17 08 2007

This is easily one of the most controversial and debated topics among Muslims and non-Muslims.  Many Muslims do not even know how to answer questions about this topic and instead choose to ignore it or lie about it. While many non-Muslims use this marriage as an opportunity to insult the Islamic faith and portray the Prophet Muhammad (saw) as a vile man.

Well, I found this lecture and powerpoint presentation to be excellent in explaining the marriage of the Prophet Muhammad to Aisha.  It should answer all questions and show the reality of the times.  I have given two links here for your conveinence.

You know I have often thought that the world hasn’t changed, just our perceptions of it. I was raised in Alabama, and at 16 my grandmothers began badgering me about when I was going to find my husband. They were both married at 16, and considered this to be “old maid” status. My great grand mother was 13 when she got married, and her mother was 11. I have modern perceptions of the world (as this is the time period in which I live), but I also understand the culture and the society of the time period, and this was the norms for the peoples of that time and place.

I am not surprised that a SBC preacher said these things about the Prophet (Sorry I’m not Islamic so not sure what to put here). Thing is that I have heard Christian men say back home, “Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed.” Which is an old concept. I believe it is less about what this preacher believes and more his attempt at discrediting any religion except his own brand of religion.

My late teacher, once said the same concerning the marriage between Saiyidatina Aisyah r.a. and Rasulullah s.a.w.

“after the prophet’s death, Saiyidatina Aisyah r.a. one of Islam’s greatest scholars, consistently called upon by the Companions for clarification on numerous Islamic matters. ”

this sentence explained clearly why Allah decreed this marriage. The marriage was not base on lust but base on Allah’s wisdom in ensuring that after Prophet Muhammad demise, his knowledge on Islam and values live on thru Saiyidatina Aisyah r.a.

Wallahu ‘alam.

I heard in west, women used to marry early. It is good they look at their history.. By the way How marriage of prophet and Aisha is something unusual in 1400 years ago when My grandma’s aunt got married at age of 8 years old, around 85 years ago? She is still alive..

even if the prophet swa didn’t marry aisha ra , the non muslims will always have something negative to pick on him .
commen sense, if he was vile why did aisha ra love him so much . would she even be a scholar in islam ?

Also, we must remember that Aisha rady Allahu anha was engaged to someone else BEFORE that broke and she married the Prophet salaAllahu alayhi wa salam so she was definitely around her marriage age

Let us add a couple of Bukhari for clarification:

Sahih Bukhari 5.234
Narrated Aisha:
The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 33
Narrated ‘Aisha:
I never felt so jealous of any woman as I did of Khadija, though she had died three years before the Prophet married me, and that was because I heard him mentioning her too often, and because his Lord had ordered him to give her the glad tidings that she would have a palace in Paradise, made of Qasab and because he used to slaughter a sheep and distribute its meat among her friends.

The slides related to prophet (pbuh) and aisha were informative and good but what was the need to badmouth christians. Islam always talks about peace and love then why do we need to say bad things about other religions while talking about Islam. Just tell about Islam and clarify the doubts of people.
