No, i was proving a point. Seems like you're to hateful of a person to even see that. I provided what you believed, and what i believed. And it's that simple, it doesn't take a genius to figure that one out. So lets try this again. During biblical times and the 7th century, yes. As soon as the first period, a child was considered grown basically. That was the cultural norm back then. And here's my answer.... whoever quoted those Ahadeeth has half quoted them, below you can find the complete Hadeeth from both the sources. Both these incidents took place when Aisha was in menstruation, and it is the known Truth that her marriage to Muhammad (RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) consummated after she started her menstruations in Madinah al Munawarrah. Here is the complete Hadeeth from the translation of Sunan Abu Dawood and Sahih Bukhari I'm discrediting the website because it has fallacies. So no ad hom here.. You claim you can translate arabic right? Here's an arabic website of hadith texts in arabic, provide evidence by breaking down the words from arabic to english in those hadiths. All you did thus far was break it down in english, which means nothing..... http://hadith.al-islam.com/Search/AdvSearch.asp Here's further evidence she was engaged at six 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. In conclusion, no matter what your argument is (he was a manipulative man etc) the prophet Muhammad (s) of 7th century arabia was born into a norm of young marriages. No-one considered this act as "wrong" that goes for Muhammad (s) and Aicha as well. You fail to grasp the social science in all of this, due to your undeniable bias towards muslims. People had problems with infanticide in pre-islamic arabia, for obvious reasons, which is why the act was abolished, and rightfully so. However, you won't find one case where people had any problems or objections with young marriages back then, because they were just fine with it. No, it was not "wrong" to them nor to the prophets (P), just because it's "wrong" to you doesn't mean you have the right to sabotage them. It's not 'right' or 'wrong' because to them it's 'right' and to you it's 'wrong.' In other words, it's subjective.
