Though it may be shocking to our civilized senses, in accordance with Islamic theology, Muslim men are not only allowed to marry young children but are also allowed to engage in sexual intercourse with them. By permitting men to have sex with minors, Islam legitimizes and sanctions an act that is regarded as pedophilia by the rest of the civilized world. And by putting this shameful act within the context of marriage, Islam tries to give this God-forbidden practice an appearance of legitimacy.
The Qur’an has stipulated a waiting period which a divorced Muslim woman must observe before she can remarry. This waiting period must be observed by the wife after she is divorced by her husband. In the Qur’an, this is called “Iddah” or “Iddat.” There is, however, one exception to this requirement in the Qur’an and it is found in Surah 33:49:
“O you who believe! When you marry believing women, and then divorce them before you have sexual intercourse with them, no ‘Iddah (divorce prescribed period, see Surah 65:4) have you to count in respect of them. So give them a present, and set them free i.e. divorce, in a handsome manner.” (Hilali-Khan)
This text says that if a woman is not touched sexually by her husband, then she do not have to observe the customary waiting period after her divorce. But iddah becomes compulsory when sexual contact has occurred within the marriage. The purpose for this waiting period is to determine if the divorced wife is pregnant or not. For women who need to observe iddah, the Qur’an specifies the length of time that is required to be observed. It separates the divorced women into three different categories. Here is the prescribed iddah for the three categories of women:
Surah 65:4: “Such of your woman as passed age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if you have any doubt, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same): for those who carry (life within theirs wombs), their period is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.” (Yusuf Ali)
Hilali-Khan’s translation makes it even clearer:
“And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens), and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him.” (Hilali-Khan)
In the first category are the women who have passed the age of menstruation. The waiting period for these women is three months. In the second category are “those who have not menstruated yet.” This group consists of prepubescent girls who have not yet menstruated. The iddah prescribed for them is also three months. It is the divorced wives in this category that will be the subject of our discussion. Lastly are the women who are pregnant. Their prescribed iddah is until they have given birth.
As we have noted, the background of Surah 65:4 deals with the issue of the waiting period for the ex-wives after their divorce. This Qur’anic verse lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed waiting period after a divorce takes effect. It tells that the waiting period for divorced girls who has not even started their menstrual is three months. As stated earlier, the purpose for this waiting period is to determine if the divorced wife is pregnant or not. If she is found to be pregnant, her iddah lasts until the birth of the child.
Can you comprehend the full implication of this single evil verse in the Qur’an?
Surah 65:4 is clearly saying that Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached the age of menstruation. This means that according to Islamic theology, Muslim men are not only allowed to marry young children but are also allowed to have sex with them. Since the purpose of the waiting period is to determine pregnancy, this means that Muslim husbands are permitted to engage in sexual intercourse with their prepubescent child wives. Think! If these child-brides have not even attained puberty at the time of their divorce, imagine how young they must have been at the time of their marriage. The important issue that we need to bear in mind is that not only does Islam permit Muslim men to marry prepubescent girls but it also allows these men to engage in sex with their child-brides and divorce them if they choose to do so. The laws of most nations declare that it is illegal to have sex with minors with or without their consent. The offence is called statutory rape. Thus, Surah 65:4 testifies to the undeniable reality that the raping of minors is permitted in Islam.
Surah 33:49 which we cited at the beginning of this article helps us to understand that the stipulated waiting period is tied to the consummation of the marriage. It says that if a woman is divorced by her husband before having sex with her, she does not need to observe any waiting period. Thus, when Surah 65:4 states that the waiting period for those who have not menstruated is three months, it actually presupposes that sex had already taken place in the marriage. By permitting men to have sex with minors, Islam legitimizes and sanctions an act that is regarded as pedophilia by the rest of the civilized world. And by putting this shameful act within the context of marriage, Islam tries to give this God-forbidden practice an appearance of legitimacy.
It is unthinkable, how this religion can get away with this amount of filthiness in it. How can decent Muslims not see this? We are talking about one of the most despicable acts that only the most depraved are capable of committing. Yet, it is an act that is not only sanctioned by Allah but also set as an example by his Prophet. Ignore the legitimacy that Islam tries to give to this evil practice by confining it within the framework of marriage. The only legitimacy this marriage gives a pedophile is the license to rape his young victim as often as he wishes. Whatever hint of guilt that the pedophile may have will now be decimated by this marriage. He can now commit this despicable act with an untroubled conscience in the security of his home. Islam protects the pedophile and grants him the God-given right to carry out his depraved practice without fear of punishment. Islam is a pedophile’s paradise. Concerning this depraved act, a well-known Muslim scholar stated: “No one has the right to forbid a thing that the Qur’an has held as permissible.”
We will now look at the Tafsirs (Commentaries) on Surah 65:4 by renowned Muslim Scholars. Only relevant parts from the Tafsirs will be quoted so as to focus on the point that is central to our discussion.
Well known scholar, Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi states in his Commentary on Surah 65:4 in Tafhim al Qur’an, Volume 5, p. 620, note 13, regarding sex with prepubescent children:
“Here, one should bear in mind the fact that according to the explanations given in the Quran the question of the waiting period arises in respect of the women with whom marriage may have been consummated, for there is no waiting-period in case divorce is pronounced before the consummation of marriage. (Al-Ahzab: 49). Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for girls who have not yet menstruated, clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl at this age but it is permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her. Now, obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Qur’an has held as permissible.”
Maududi affirms that it is not only permitted by the Qur’an to marry prepubescent girls but also to consummate the marriage with them. He also adds that no Muslims has the right to question or forbid what Allah has permitted in the Qur’an.
Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Surah 65:4:
“The `Iddah of Those in Menopause and Those Who do not have Menses Allah the Exalted clarifies the waiting period of the woman in menopause. And that is the one whose menstruation has stopped due to her older age. Her `Iddah is three months instead of the three monthly cycles for those who menstruate, which is based upon the Ayah in (Surat) Al-Baqarah. [see 2:228] The same for the young, who have not reached the years of menstruation. Their `Iddah is three months like those in menopause. This is the meaning of His saying.”
Tafsir Al-Jalalayn on Surah 65:4:
“And as for those of your women who no longer expect to menstruate, if you have any doubts, about their waiting period, their prescribed waiting period shall be three months, and also for those who have not yet menstruated, because of their young age, their period shall also be three months – both cases apply to other than those whose spouses have died; for these latter their period is prescribed in the verse: they shall wait by themselves for four months and ten days (Q. 2:23). And those who are pregnant, their term, the conclusion of their waiting period if divorced or if their spouses be dead, shall be when they deliver. And whoever fears God, He will make matters easy for him, in this world and in the Hereafter.”
Tafsir Ibn Abbas on Surah 65:4:
“(And for such of your women as despair of menstruation) because of old age, (if ye doubt) about their waiting period, (their period (of waiting) shall be three months) upon which another man asked: “O Messenger of Allah! “What about the waiting period of those who do not have menstruation because they are too young?” (along with those who have it not) because of young age, their waiting period is three months.” Another man asked: “what is the waiting period for those women who are pregnant?” (And for those with child) i.e. those who are pregnant, (their period) their waiting period (shall be till they bring forth their burden) their child. (And whosoever keepeth his duty to Allah) and whoever fears Allah regarding what he commands him, (He maketh his course easy for him) He makes his matter easy; and it is also said this means: He will help him to worship Him well.” (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs – Qur’an 65:4)
Tafsir Al-Tabari XIV:142:
The interpretation of the verse “And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months; and for those who have no courses (i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise.” He said: The same applies to the ‘idaah for girls who do not menstruate because they are too young, if their husbands divorce them after consummating the marriage with them.
The above commentaries by prominent Muslim scholars clearly prove that Muslim men are allowed to engage in sexual intercourse with their prepubescent child wives. Otherwise, the requirement to observe the waiting period by the prepubescent wives will not be necessary as the Qur’an itself testifies. Muslims, who deny that such practices and teachings are rooted in Islam, are either lying to us or completely ignorant of their religion. To claim ignorance is not an excuse.
The following Hadith also collaborates with the above commentaries by Muslim scholars:
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 63:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad: “The Prophet said, “Go, I have agreed to marry her to you with what you know of the Qur’an (as her Mahr).” “And for those who have no courses (i.e. they are still immature). (65.4) And the ‘Iddat for the girl before puberty is three months (in the above Verse).”
Giving away children who are far too young for marriage became permissible in Islam by reason of the law of Allah in Surah 65:4. Pedophilia is defined as a “sexual deviation of being sexually attracted primarily or exclusively to prepubescent children.” A person with this kind of attraction towards children is called a Pedophile. Pedophilia is considered illegal in most societies, cultures and religions – the exception being Islam where it is accepted in its theology.
Not only are marriages with minors taught in the Qur’an but Muhammad himself also set the example when he married Aisha. Muhammad married Aisha when she was only six-years-old and he consummated his marriage with her at the age of nine – while she was still a prepubescent. He was fifty-four at that time.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64:
Narrated By ‘Aisha : That the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3309:
‘Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine.
Hadith Sunan Abu Dawud, Volume 2, Number 2116:
“Aisha said, ‘The Apostle of Allah married me when I was seven years old.’ (The narrator Sulaiman said: “Or six years.”). “He had intercourse with me when I was 9 years old.”
We have seen that the Islamic laws of Allah allow husbands to engage in intercourse with their prepubescent wives. We have also discovered from the Hadiths that Aisha was nine-years-old when Muhammad had sexual intercourse with her. Now we will look at the evidences that prove that Aisha was prepubescent when Muhammad first had sexual intercourse with her.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151:
Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)
Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3311:
‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.
Sunan Nas’ai (830-915 C.E.), Book of Marriage, Number 3256:
“A’ishah said: The Apostle of Allah peace be upon him married me when I was six and had intercourse with me when I was nine and I was playing with dolls.”
Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 5981:
Aisha reported that she used to play with dolls in the presence of Allah’s Messenger and when her playmates came to her they left (the house) because they felt shy of Allah’s Messenger whereas Allah’s Messenger sent them to her.
Muhammad married Aisha when she was six-years-old and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, along with her dolls. Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151 states that playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for Aisha at that time because she has not yet reached the age of puberty. Sahih Muslim clearly states that Aisha still had her dolls with her when she was taken to Muhammad’s house as a bride. Thus, it becomes clear that Aisha was prepubescent when she was taken to his house as a bride.
The Hadiths clearly prove that when Muhammad consummated the marriage with Aisha, she was still playing with her dolls at the tender age of nine. And Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 5981 confirms that Aisha was still playing with her dolls even after the consummation of her marriage. All these Hadiths prove that Aisha was prepubescent when Muhammad first had sex with her. Another famous Islamic scholar, Al-Khattaabee confirmed this when he clearly stated:
“The only reason why permission in this (playing with dolls) was given to ‘Aa’isha is because she had not, at that time, reached the age of puberty.”
Most Muslims wrongly believe that Muhammad had sexual intercourse with Aisha only after her first menstruation. They also mistakenly believe that Islam permits Muslim husbands to sexually engage with their child-brides only after their first menstruation. But as verified by the Qur’an, the Hadith and Muslim scholars themselves, Muslim men are permitted to engage in sexual intercourse with their child-brides before their first menses. The records prove that Muhammad actually had sex with Aisha prior to her first menses. The undeniable fact is that Muhammad was having sex with Aisha while she was still a child. The Qur’an allows this, Muhammad did this, Aisha stated this, and the scholars affirm this. Now, Islam’s children have to deal with this.
This fact places Muhammad and Islam in a far darker and contemptible position than most people believe it to be. Many Muslims do not know this. When children are allowed to be used for sex, then it becomes sexual abuse and any support for Muhammad means the same as supporting the sexual exploitation of children. Muhammad’s action and teachings on the laws of marriage established an Islamic precedent that allows female children to be married off as adults. The damaging example of Allah’s Prophet has caused millions of Muslim girls to come under subjection to this harmful practice. This practice is grossly wicked and should not be condoned. Therefore, to support Islam is to support pedophilia. Needless to say, Muhammad established an appalling standard for Islam.
In line with Allah’s commandment to imitate the example of their Prophet, Muslims maintain this harmful practice until today. Following are excerpts from an interview with Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu’bi, a Saudi marriage officiant:
“It is allowed to marry a girl at the age of one, if sex is postponed. The Prophet Muhammad, whose model we follow, married ‘Aisha when she was six and had sex with her when she was nine.’” (Source: Aired on LBC TV (Lebanon) – June 19, 2008)
Because Muhammad asserted that he should be emulated, he bears the full responsibility for this form of child abuse in the Islamic world. By stipulating iddah for prepubescent girls in the Qur’an, Islam shamelessly supports the sexual abuse of young children. While no iddah is prescribed for a woman who had no intimate contact with her husband, iddah was prescribed for prepubescent girls in Surah 65:4. This stands as a definitive proof that Allah, Muhammad, Islam and the Qur’an endorses pedophilia – the most abominable of all sexual crimes.
One of the most disturbing things about Islam is that it does not condemn the crime of pedophilia as committed within the boundaries of marriage. It cannot, for to do so would draw attention to the pedophilia of the founder of Islam. Sex with minors – with or without their consent – is considered as statutory rape in the laws of civilized nations. As a direct result of the endorsement of pedophilia in the Qur’an, the sexual exploitation of children in the guise of marriage are permitted in many Islamic countries.
Sheikh Hamoud Hashim, general secretary of the Vice and Virtue Committee in Yemen stated:
“Because this happened to the Prophet, we cannot tell people that it is prohibited to marry at an early age.” (Source: BBC NEWS: Published on 6 November 2008)
Muslim apologists try to defend Muhammad’s action by saying that it was customary for the people of his time to give away young children in marriage. They excuse his behavior by saying that he only reflected the practices of the pre-Islamic cultures of his time. If true, it only serves to prove that Muhammad was a false prophet.
Prophets of the true God are required to raise the moral standard of the people they are sent to. If Muhammad were sent by God, he would have acted differently. He would not have followed the customs of the pre-Islamic pagan society but would have set a new standard. A true prophet would have been inspired by God to denounce the evil of pedophilia, rather than submit to it.
Lacking the driving force of God’s holy spirit, he behaved the same as pagans of his time. Muhammad actually endorsed pedophilia by his very participation in it. His participation served to confirm, promote and perpetuate this evil practice. How can Muslims then claim that his aim is to gradually discourage this evil pagan practice? This is definitely not the way to eradicate something evil. By Muhammad’s involvement in pedophilic marriage, this evil practice continues on till today because all acts of Muhammad are considered “Sunnah,” meaning that it is an approved conduct that should be emulated by all Muslims for all times.
Thus, Muhammad is directly responsible for sustaining this age-old pagan practice. In addition, this also means that by following Muhammad, Muslims are now perpetuating the outdated and evil customs of those pagan Arabs of 1400 years ago. If Muhammad followed the example of the pagan society, why are Muslims following him? Why should Muslims accept Muhammad as their prophet when he was incapable of breaking away from the wickedness, primitiveness, barbarity and savagery of the pagan Arabs? Thus, when Muslim apologists justify the practice of child-marriages by stating that it is a norm in pre-Islamic culture, they are in fact admitting that their Prophet is a victim of the primitive society he came from. This means Muhammad is nothing but a product of paganism. And Islam is nothing but a continuance of paganism.
In truth, the pagans had a higher moral standard than Muhammad did. For example, they were deeply troubled when Muhammad married the wife of his adopted son. These Arab pagans had the love and decency to view their adopted children as their own. Hence, in their eyes, Muhammad committed incest by marrying his own daughter-in-law. Who do you think had a much higher and noble standard of morality?
Muslims today cannot condemn pedophilia even if they would like to. Doing so would mean that they will have to abandon the teachings of Islam. Muslims tacitly approve of pedophilia, even if they are embarrassed to say so openly. So taken-up are Muslims by the conduct of Muhammad that they are unable to denounce pedophilia as a result of his association with this practice. If Muslims consider Muhammad as a perfect example than they must also consider him as the perfect pedophile. Pedophilia is prevalent in many Muslim countries disguised as child marriage. Muhammad should be judged as a man who established child abuse as a norm in Islam. What he did was wrong, and worse still, established it as an acceptable conduct for Muslims to imitate. By our Christian heritage and legal standards, Muhammad committed a heinous crime. Our standards are better then that of Islam’s when it comes to protecting children. While Jesus loved children and spoke highly of their innocence, Muhammad made love to children and robbed them of their innocence.
Mark 9:42: “Whoever causes one of these little children who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”
Sincere Muslims need to honestly evaluate their religion. Did the teachings of Islam shape Muhammad’s behavior or did Muhammad mold Islam into his image? In other words, is the Qur’an a reflection of Muhammad’s personality? As defined earlier, a pedophile is one who feels sexually attracted towards children. Did Muhammad have this weakness, which is then projected into the teachings of the Qur’an? Is this the reason why the Qur’an permits sex with prepubescent children? Is this the reason why the Qur’an sanctions pedophilia? For this to be true, it must be proven beyond any doubt that Muhammad truly had pedophilia tendencies. To begin with, Aisha was not the only child Muhammad had his eyes on. He had his eyes on two other infants.
 Ibn Ishaq: Suhayli, ii. 79:
“In the riwaya of Yunus Ibn Ishaq (it is) recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lFadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said, ‘If she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’ But he died before she grew up and Sufyan b. al-Aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-Asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him Rizq and Lubab…” (A Translation of Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah by A. Guillaume)
 Musnad Ahmad, Hadith Number 25636:
Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “If she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Source: Hadith.Al-Islam.com)
Muslims should step out of the shoes of Islam and look at their Prophet objectively. What kind of man would look at crawling babies or at infants and express his desire to marry them? What was on his mind when he spoke those words? Is this not an indication that he was attracted to them at that very moment he set his eyes on them? Otherwise, why did he express his desire to marry them? His affair with young Aisha serves as a window into the mentality of this man. He married her when she was six and sexually assaulted her when she was nine-years-old. Could the fact that even when Aisha was a baby, he twice dreamed of her show the pedophilia fantasy of this man? And we saw how Islamic records themselves show that he wanted to claim other young victims as well.
Fortunately, for Ummu’lFadl, Muhammad died. In the case of Um Habiba, Muhammad actually proposed to marry her but she escaped being victimized as it was discovered that she was his foster niece.
The History of Al-Tabari, Volume IX: 140:
“He proposed to Umm Habib bt. al-‘Abbas b. ‘Abd al-Muttalib, but discovered that al-‘Abbas was his foster-brother; Thuwaybah had nursed them both.”
Here we have two instances (besides Aisha) where a man well over fifty had his eyes on two infants. Now, don’t you think that’s a serious problem? Can this man truly be a prophet of God? These are the only records of potential infant victims that are available to us. How many other children he lusted after, only God knows! Or as Muslim scholars like to say, “Allah knows best.”
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 15:
Narrated By ‘Aisha: Allah’s Apostle said (to me), “You have been shown to me twice in my dreams. A man was carrying you in a silken cloth and said to me, ‘This is your wife.’ I uncovered it; and behold, it was you. I said to myself, ‘If this dream is from Allah, He will cause it to come true.’”
Is this not a sexual fantasy of a pedophile? Aisha was only a baby when Muhammad had this dream. Notice the craving in his words, “If this dream is from Allah, He will cause it to come true.” To even think of a baby in terms of a wife is both outrageous and shocking.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173:
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “If you enter (your town) at night (after coming from a journey), do not enter upon your family till the woman whose husband was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic hair and the woman with unkempt hair, combs her hair.”
Now, why would a prophet of God give this instruction to a husband to wait until his wife shaves her pubic hair? Is it so that her vagina will resemble that of a young child? If this is not a craving of a pedophile, what else could it be? Pedophilia is one of the gifts of Islam to sexual perverts.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 17:
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: When I got married, Allah’s Apostle said to me, “What type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” He said, “Why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s Apostle said, “Why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?”
The Qur’an sustains the pedophilic nature of Muhammad in its theology. It supports the shameful crime of pedophilia by legitimizing it as marriage. Pedophiles can now justify the shameful act of raping children by first marrying their victims. Once he is through satisfying himself with his young victim, the Muslim pedophile can always divorce his child-wife and move on to target another young victim – as endorsed by the Qur’an in Surah 65:4. To assist our readers to recap the evil nature of this Qur’anic verse, we will cite this verse once again:
“And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses ((i.e. they are still immature) their Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death) .” (Hilali-Khan)”
Child marriages are outlawed in Western nations. And sex with minors are called “Criminal Pedophilia.” However, Muslims shamefully keep the venom of this evil practice alive by following the example of a pedophile. In consequence, children are sexually abused by Muslim men who are old enough to be their fathers or even grandfathers. Pedophilia is evil, cruel and barbaric and it destroys the life of a child. Children are not mature enough, either physically, emotionally or mentally to enter into a marriage relationship with adults.
In Islam, there is no place for ethics, morality or conscience. Islamic morality is quite different and stands on two notions: Halal (permitted) and Haram (not permitted). To every civilized human being, the marriage between a man well over fifty and a six-year-old child will be an act that is highly immoral, unethical and vulgar. However, to a Muslim, such an act is Halal, for the sole reason that the Prophet of Islam himself had done it. Therefore, an application of the personal sense of morality and ethics does not play any role in the life of a Muslim. Whatever Muhammad did and practiced is Halal and Muslims are commanded to emulate their Pedophile Prophet. What Muhammad said and did during the specific situations he encountered is considered a model for the conduct of all Muslims in every age, and for that reason alone, the meaning of the Qur’an’s verses cannot be restricted to the times and places in which they were received. The Qur’an is understood to be the timeless word of Allah, given at one time for every time and for every place. So the evil continues.
All decent humans feel repulsed at the utter evil nature of this shameful immoral act. To molest a child sexually is evil. To molest a child while proclaiming to be a prophet of God is shockingly evil and blasphemous. Muhammad may have his weaknesses but Muslims still have to answer why Allah sanctioned pedophilia in Surah 65:4.
