Was Muhammad a Pedophile?

The greatest evidence of Muhammad’s lust may be demonstrated in his marriage to a six-year-old girl named Aisha. Muhammad was about 53 years old when he betrothed his child bride. Later, at the age of nine, Aisha was handed over to the prophet to consummate the marriage. The Hadith records this account:

Aisha narrated: . . . 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 me to do. 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. . . . 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.[7]

Before the age of puberty, the young child was brought to the prophet Muhammad to have sexual consummation. A vivid portrayal of her young age had been recorded in one of the hadiths:

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 she was a little girl, she did not yet reach the age of puberty.[8]

Imagine, the 53 year old prophet Muhammad having sexual intercourse with this innocent child who played with her dolls. Muhammad joins the ranks of many other religious cult leaders who have engaged in unbiblical sexual practices. Amazingly, throughout the world, Muhammad has been revered and idolized by Muslim men for centuries. In several countries, older Muslim men often legally marry young girls before they reach puberty. Islamic law permits young girls to be given away in marriage.[9] Based upon their own lustful role model these men choose to harm innocent children and mentally scar them for life.

With the exploding population of Muslims in England, the divorce laws have been altered for those who follow the Islamic faith. The question remains, what other laws may be subsequently changed to cater to Islam’s perverted forms of justice and sexual deviations? Will pedophilia be allowed for Muslims? Will they establish Sharia law zones in provinces that have significant Muslim populations? Will political correctness bend to the whims of the Islamic factions and surrender their own common law heritage?


Islamists excuse Muhammad’s marriage to the child bride based upon his wish to unite the Arabic Bedouin tribes. This type of circular reasoning creates an even greater dilemma. Since many of the leaders of the Arabic tribes had older daughters and sisters, why could Muhammad not marry one of them? The answer appears to be quite evident; Muhammad’s unbridled sexual appetite compelled him to partake in the most perverted indulgence, pedophilia. Virtually, any modern court of law would pronounce Muhammad guilty as a pedophile.

Muhammad’s derogatory view of women has been irrefutably demonstrated. Whereas, the biblical revelation of the Holy Bible has given women equality to that of a man, but the Qur’an relegates women to the status of an animal (cattle) or soil to be tilled. Muhammad exemplified antisocial behavior devoid of conscience regarding the rights of women and young girls. His pronouncements and condoning of women-beating demonstrates that he should be classified as a sadistic psychopath; not only to women but also to those who oppose his false teachings. Muhammad was a vicious, cruel man, who instituted a religion of violence by the sword with little regard for human rights, especially to women.
