Age of Hz Aisha [ra] at time of marriage, 19 not 9: is this possible?

24 posts in this topic

It's widely admitted that Hz Aisha [ra] marriage to the Prophet [saw] was consumed at the age of 9 (she was betrothed at the age of 6). Critics of Islam often portray this union as a form of marital abuse [nau'z billah]. They ignore - conveniently!

Aslam Alikum!

Brother I have not delved into the article u have uploaded but as far as the age of Hazrat Aisha is concerned, another well known islamic historican HAKEEM MEHMOOD AHMED ZAFAR SIALKOTI has argued extremely well in his book UMAHAAT UL MOMINEEN and concluded the same age i.e. 19years at the time of marriage... If anybody requires I will provide the reference of the book or if u ask me I will translate the concerned argument in english....

JazakAllah

Salam Alaykoum,

Thank you very much for replying back. I was searching on the net for more trustworthy sources. If you can translate the argument in English, then I would really appreciate it. Anti-islamic websites often focus on this point to slander the Prophet [saw] and accuse Muslims of promoting child abuse. I look forward to hearing from you and I'll try to put my hand on the book you've mentionned. Thank you again :).

Phew! Brother its a laborious task and am not very good at typing so I would upload the whole argument gradually...

"Syeda Ume Roman R.A (Mother of Hazrat Ayesha R.A) was first given in nikkah to Abd Allah Azdi. After his death she entered into nikkah with Siddique e Akbar Syedna Abu Bakar Siddique R.A. She had two offsprings from Syedna Abubakar R.A. i.e. Syedna Abd ArRehman bin Abi Bakar R.A and Syeda Ayesha R.A. Some people are of the view that Syeda Ayesha was born in the start of fourth year after Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.BU.H) was bestowed with prophethood and some report her birth in the fifth year of prophethood. Famous Reports supports the latter argument. Histrican of recent times have reported the same and I myself was of the same view but I was not satisfied rather disturbed with this so called fact that in such tender age Syeda was given in nikkah because if we accept the above two arguments, it concludes that Syeda was of 6 years at the time of nikkah and subsequently of 9 years at the time of rukhsati (I dont know the english of rukhsati, pardon me). But the strong facts and testimonies doesn't support either of the two above given arguments that Syeda was of six year at the time of nikkah. But strong reports support the fact that Syeda was of 17 years at the time of nikkah and I believe that reporter somehow forgot to mention the word "ASHRATA". What are those testimonies and and strong reports that support the view of 17 years, lets delve into them:

1- Reports maintain that step sister of of Syeda Ayesha i.e. Syeda Asma bint Abi Bakar R.A was 10 years elder than Syeda Ayesha R.A. (Akmaal Fi Isma ur Rijaal Page 558). Imam Zehbi R.T.A have lso narrated the same from Abdur Rahman bin ABi Aznao that Syeda Ayesha was ten years younger than Syeda Asma (Seer Ailaam Al Anba Book 2 Page 152). Same has been written by Hafiz Ibn e Abdul Bar in his book ALISTIAAB Book 2 PAGE 4 that Syeda Asma was ten year elder than Syeda AYesha. Historican have written that Syeda Asma was of 27 years at the time of Hijra. So Hafiz Ibn e Hajar have narrated from Abu Naeem in his book ALASABA dat "SHE (SYEDA ASMA) BORN 27 YEARS BEFORE HIJRAH" AlAsaba Book 4, Page 225. Alama Ibn e Aseer has also narreted in ASAD ALGHABA Book 5, Page 393 that Syeda Asma was born 27 before Hijrah. She accepted Islam after 17 people had accepted Islam and died in 73 Hijrah. Same has been written by Ibn e KASEER (AlBidaya Waniahaya Tazkara Abdullah bin Zubair 73 Hijrah)

Now if Syeda Asma was 27 at the time of Hijrah and Syeda Ayesha R.a was 10 years younger than her then its crystal cler that Syeda Ayesha was of 17 years of age at the time of Hijrah.... Wallah AALAM

This is one arguement provided by author, visibily very strong as it pertains to several most reliable sources. I will post the rest in my next sitting. Hope u will forgive for being lathargic...

JazakAllah

The authentic hadiths say aisha r.a was six at marriage and moved in with prophet pbuh at the age of 9.

So i believe aisha r.a was 9 years old and there is nothing wrong with that. Infact it was a blessing that aisha r.a at such age could learn islam from the prophet pbuh himself,and after his death she was amongst the scholars.

I have a question that how is it possible hazrat ayesha was mature at the age of six but hazrat Ali a.s was kid even he was 9 or 11 ??

firstly her age was 9 when the marriage was taken place.

Secondly the age of maturity for boys and girls differ. its not the same.

so if just nikah happens BUT NOT RUKHSATI, FOR THAT A GIRL DOESNT NEEDS TO BE MATURE.

AND THE REASON PROPPHET(SAW) WAITED FOR 3 YEARS IS JUST BECAUSE FOR HER TO REACH MATURITY, OTHERWISE WHY WOULD HE HAVE WAITED FOR 3 YEARS.

SO STOP MAKING THESE FOOLISH ARGUMENTS. AND READ THE BOOK WHICH I GAVE WHICH ANSWERS YOUR FOOLISH QUESTIONS.

SECONDLY THE REASON I SUGGEST U TO READ BOOK IS BECAUSE, YOU DONT HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE BUT U ASK SILLY QUESTIONS.

if u read the artcile(for which i gave link) by ustad ayman he has proved what was the right age of bibi ayesha(ra).

And yes prophet(saw) was not Pedophile this allegation has been beautifullt refuted by brother ibn al hashmi in his book:

The Islamaphobe

Can you prvoe that Rasool Allah saww did nikkah with ayesha when she was not mature ?

And can you prove me from fiqah that you can do nikkah with a girl who is not mature ?

I already told you that in shariat main thing is nikkah not rukhsati...

Where its written that you can do nikkah with a kid but cant sleep with her until she mature...

And if you read another article then you will know that your mulla said her mother first check that she is mature then she did nikkah...

So who is right you or your mullah...

sweet heart the reason prophet(saw) waited for three years is itself a proof that she wasn't physically mature. How would be your QIYAS for that why prophet(saw) waited for 3 years any sensible answer?

lol the main thing the non muslims commment in this issue is that (prophet(saw) used to have sex with a child who was 6 years old)nauzbillahi minzalik, nakal kufr kufr nabashad.

so the main allegation is sexual practices with a child, nauzbillah. There is no problem if a person just a makes nikah with immature girl.

AND I CAN SINK YOU IN REFERENCES FOR THIS ISSUE BUT ONE SHOT TO END UP THIS PROPOGANDA IS THE FATWA OF KHOMENI WHO SAID THAT ONE CAN EVEN DO MUTA WITH A NEW BORN BABY. SO WHAT IS WRONG FOR NIKAH?

So do you think Rasool Allah saww follow fatwa of imam khumeni lol...

Come on kid be mature...

And if Rasool Allah saww just wait three years then why he didnt do nikkah after 3 years ?

And i asked you one question that is it allowed in your beleif that you can do nikkah with a girl who is not mature ?
