Child marriage, slavery, concubinage, polygamy, alcohol, revenge, violence and lewd behavior were rampant throughout the world since the recorded history. Arabia was not the only place infested with these scourges of humanity.
However, child marriage was abhorred by the Arabs while no stigma or blame was attached to slavery, alcohol, concubinage, lewdness, revenge, violence and polygamy. The society used to condemn child marriage forcefully and this was one of the reasons why many Arabs used to bury their little daughters alive. Otherwise, such cruel parents could have waited a few years (to age 6,7,8,9) to 'get rid of' their daughters in wedlock.
81:8 When the little girl that was buried alive is made to ask -
81:9 For what crime she was slain. [Women’s rights will be restored]
It is quite revealing to note that the history of the Arabian peninsula, in the times of Muhammad (S), fails to cite one example of child marriage among Muslims, Jews, Christians and the pagans! There are absolutely no reports of a single noble companion (Sahabi) of the exalted Prophet having a child-bride. It becomes obvious then, that the Prophet's marriage to the child Ayesha is nothing but slander by the Zoroastrian (Magian) Hadith writers in order to defame him.
The Prophet (S) never gambled, never drank alcohol, never worshiped idols and avoided food that was unclean or anything dedicated to false gods. Throughout his life, he did not physically or emotionally hurt any human being or animal, never participated in vain talk and in exhibitions of lewdness and vanity. He was "on call" 24/7 to help people in Makkah and Madinah in any way possible. Just as the exalted Prophet abstained from all moral and social vices even before he was commissioned to the Prophetic office, it is obvious he would never indulge in any perversions.
Look at these beautiful verses in the Qur'an. Not a single person at any time, anywhere could refute this claim in the Qur'an.
7:184 Has it never occurred to them that there is no vice whatsoever in their fellow-man? He has lived a whole life among you. He is only a plain warner. [Jinna = Temper = Moral vices = Destructive ideas or actions = Violence = Impatience = Making secret schemes. 10:16]
10:16 Say, "If God willed otherwise, I would not have recited and conveyed this to you, nor would I have made you aware of it. I have dwelt among you a whole lifetime before this. (You have always called me Al-Ameen, the trustworthy and Sadiq, the truthful). Will you not, then, use your sense?” [7:184]
The exalted Prophet's wives:
THE PROPHET (S) HAD ONLY ONE WIFE AT A TIME
MARRIAGE WITH HAZRAT AYESHA 622 CE:
Contrary to the Imamist propaganda, the exalted Prophet had no more than one wife at a time. And Hazrat Ayesha was a sister, not daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr. The Prophet (S) did not marry for three years after Hazrat Khadijah's demise in Makkah three years before Hijrah. Hazrat Ayesha was the widow of a martyr, Saleh bin Saleh Al-'Ataib. She was 48 years old at the time of marriage to the exalted Prophet. Sahaba Kiraam including Hazrat Abu Bakr strongly recommended that the Prophet (S) and she got into the solemn union of marriage. The blessed wedding took place in 622 CE when Muhammad (S) was 52 years old. Kitab-e-Dalail-e-Nabawwut Syedna Muhammad (S), by Abdul Jabbar Fatimi, written 150 years before Tabari, the first ever 'canonized' historian. Azwaaj-in-Nabi wal-Ashaab, by Sheikh Hammad bin Hakam. The rest is nothing but slanderous imagination of the Zoroastrian "Imam" Tabari and the Jewish biographer Ibn Ishaq and his Parsi follower Ibn Hisham.
The exalted Prophet was now also Head of the State. Quite a few Muslims had been killed in battles and by persecution. There were women who accepted Islam while their husbands did not. The Qur’an does not allow a Muslim woman to remain wedded to a Non-Muslim. In these circumstances, there were many women and their children who needed shelter. The Prophet (S) and his companions accommodated them in their homes. To prevent slander, these widows and divorcees simply signed marriage contracts in their new households.
To emphasize the point again, the exalted Messenger married only Hazrat Khadija when he was 25, and she was 40. They lived an ideal married life for 25 years. Hazrat Khadija died in Makkah at 65. Three years after her death and soon after migration to Madinah in AH 1, Muhammad (S) married Hazrat Ayesha, a sister of Hazrat Abu Bakr. She was then 48.
During the blessed times, the Central Government run with Shura used to issue a deed of marriage to all women seeking asylum with Rasool (S) and Sahaba Kiraam in order to prevent slander. This is the reason why the Qur’an mentions the exalted Prophet's wives in plural. Please reflect on the many shades of the meaning of Nikah. Also consider why NONE BUT Hazrat Khadijah bore any children to the exalted Prophet.
Maria, the bondwoman reportedly "gifted" to the exalted prophet by the Egyptian ruler, is nothing but a malicious fabrication. How could the exalted prophet accept bondwomen and slaves when the Qur’an was emancipating them? One might assume well and think, "Well, in order to grant them freedom." But our brilliant historians insist that Maria always remained a concubine!
These concealed books are scarcely available in Arabic only under strict protection of the Muslim clergy, under custody of the autocratic Arab world.
Their stray copies are found in the Istanbul Museum, the library of Madinah University, Tashqand (Tashkent) Muslim Library in the former Soviet Union, Jame'ah Al-Azhar of Cairo, Maktaba Adnan in Beirut and in some cases they have been personally inherited by the progeny of the ancient scholars. These books are so well-guarded that only a few scholars have been able to partially photograph these precious documents. They are closely guarded since they demolish our mythical, but 'canonized' histories such as by Tabari, Ibn Atheer, and Ibn Khaldun and the conjecture based Biographies (Seera-tun-Nabi) of the Prophet (S) by Ibn Ishaq? - and Ibn Hisham.
[Ibn Ishaq's work was quickly lost and is now only known in the works named after Ibn Hisham and al-Tabari. But as recently as 2000 CE, the Mullahs have miraculously reproduced Ibn Ishaq’s book from the magician’s hat or from God knows where!]
I am extremely grateful to my respected readers who, at the risk of life and imprisonment, have been mailing me these photographed excerpts.
