Question: Mohammed had 9 wives, normal Muslims can have maximum of 4 wives if he is just. The justification for this is that Mohammed wanted to show people whom they was allowed to marry and who not. Mohammed married A’aisha when she was 9 years old. does that make marrying 9-year-old girls accepted in Islam or even a Sunnah? –Agony
Answer: It wasn’t justification for the reason you mentioned, marriage at this time to somebody who is really honorable was honor for the woman family, that’s why our prophet married a lot of woman, to raise somebody place in the society and to bring honor to her family, most of them were older than him, only Aisha as I think was younger than him, the other thing I really understand the purpose of the question, I don’t think that our prophet has all this time to enjoy his life with his women and ignore his message, I’m just married from one wife and I barley have the time to answer your question, so imagine somebody was all his worries to turn this world to better place and guide a lot of people to Islam, do you think he would have time to enjoy his life?
Aaisha and why he married her young?,
Aaisha was the most wife of our prophet that memorized a lot of hadeeth out of him, she memorized almost 2100 hadeeth and she become on the most important source in judgment for Muslims after he died, so how can you expect somebody else from his wives to memorize all of this amount of hadeeth and they are older than him and that’s also answer for how Muslims respect women and take her judgment as something trustable.
The other reason that was also as reward for her Father Abu Baker, for all what he is done to Islam.
The other thing, that puberty in women different from time to time and from place to place, for example in Egypt it’s really hard to find a girl married before 18 and it’s not even legal because the can’t take it, in the other side you found in the Egyptian country side in Egypt girls are more healthy, they married in 15. In USA I Bet you there are girls can marry for less than 13, so you don’t know how things were going at neither this time nor this environment.
Agony I hope I answered your question, and I didn’t dodge it as you think.
