Koraani 65:4: Niille vaimoistanne, joiden kuukautiset ovat keskeytyneet, tai jos olette tästä epävarmoja, olkoon koekautensa, kolme kuukautta, samoin niille, joille kuukautiset eivät ole alkaneet; mutta raskailla vaimoilla tämä aika kestäköön aina siihen asti, kunnes he ovat synnyttäneet.
|Mohammed, 40, ja hänen morsiamensa Ghulam, 11, hääpäivänään Afganistanissa. |

Tämä sääntö koskee avioeroa, jota tietenkin edeltää avioliitto. Muhammed halusi uskovien miesten odottavan kolme kuukautta ennen kuin he eroavat vaimoistaan varmistuakseen siitä, etteivät nämä ole raskaana.
Muutoin Muhammed kannusti miehiään naimaan "nuoria tyttöjä" seksuaalisen nautinnon vuoksi:
"Allahin Lähettiläs sanoi minulle: "Oletko jo mennyt naimisiin, oi Jabir?". Vastasin myöntävästi. Hän kysyi "No onko hän neitsyt vai kypsä nainen?" Vastasin hänen olevan kypsä nainen. Hän sanoi: "Miksi et nainut nuorta tyttöä, jota olisit voinut hyväillä?" (Bukhari 59:382)
Siitä, mitä tässä tarkoitetaan "nuorella", ei ole epäilystäkään. Muhammed antoi itse esimerkin naimalla ja harrastamalla seksiä Aishan, vain 9-vuotiaan tytön kanssa:
Aisha (Allah olkoon häneen tyytyväinen) kertoi: "Allahin Lähettiläs (rauha hänelle) meni naimisiin kanssani, kun olin kuusi vuotta vanha, ja muutin hänen taloonsa, kun olin yhdeksän vuotta." (Sahih Muslim 3309).
Luotettavimpien perimätietojen mukaan Aisha toi nukkensa Muhammedin taloon leikkiäkseen niillä (Muslim 3311) ja Muhammed hyväili pientä tyttöä kylpiessään hänen kanssaan (Bukhari 6:298). Aisha oli vielä teini-ikäinen, kun Muhammed kuoli, mutta oli silti ollut hänen vaimonsa puolet elämästään.
Vielä pahempaa muslimien kannalta on se, että osa Koraanista "ilmoitettiin", kun Muhammed oli vuoteessa tämän pienen tytön kanssa:
[Muhammed sanoi:] "...Jumalallisia Ilmoituksia ei tule kenenkään muun kuin Aishan vuoteessa." (Bukhari 47:755).
Voidaan kai sanoa, että Muhammed ei tuominnut pedofiliaa.
Ei sinne päinkään.

Bukhari ja Muslim ovat sunni-muslimien arvostetuimmat hadith-kokoelmat. Tässä vielä kirjoituksessa viitatut kohdat kokonaisuudessaan näissä haditheissa:
Bukhari: Volume 5, Book 59, Number 382:
"Allah's Apostle said to me, "Have you got married O Jabir?" I replied, "Yes." He asked "What, a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "Not a virgin but a matron." He said, "Why did you not marry a young girl who would have fondled with you?" I replied, "O Allah's Apostle! My father was martyred on the day of Uhud and left nine (orphan) daughters who are my nine sisters; so I disliked to have another young girl of their age, but (I sought) an (elderly) woman who could comb their hair and look after them." The Prophet said, "You have done the right thing."
Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 6, Number 298:
The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were Junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in Itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).
Muslim: Book 008, Number 3309:
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine. She further said: We went to Medina and I had an attack of fever for a month, and my hair had come down to the earlobes. Umm Ruman (my mother) came to me and I was at that time on a swing along with my playmates. She called me loudly and I went to her and I did not know what she had wanted of me. She took hold of my hand and took me to the door, and I was saying: Ha, ha (as if I was gasping), until the agitation of my heart was over. She took me to a house, where had gathered the women of the Ansar. They all blessed me and wished me good luck and said: May you have share in good. She (my mother) entrusted me to them. They washed my head and embellished me and nothing frightened me. Allah's Messenger (, may peace be upon him) came there in the morning, and I was entrusted to him.
Muslim: Book 008, Number 3311:
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he 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.
Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 47, Number 755:
Narrated 'Urwa from 'Aisha:
The wives of Allah's Apostle were in two groups. One group consisted of 'Aisha, Hafsa, Safiyya and Sauda; and the other group consisted of Um Salama and the other wives of Allah's Apostle. The Muslims knew that Allah's Apostle loved 'Aisha, so if any of them had a gift and wished to give to Allah's Apostle, he would delay it, till Allah's Apostle had come to 'Aisha's home and then he would send his gift to Allah's Apostle in her home. The group of Um Salama discussed the matter together and decided that Um Salama should request Allah's Apostle to tell the people to send their gifts to him in whatever wife's house he was. Um Salama told Allah's Apostle of what they had said, but he did not reply. Then they (those wives) asked Um Salama about it. She said, "He did not say anything to me." They asked her to talk to him again. She talked to him again when she met him on her day, but he gave no reply. When they asked her, she replied that he had given no reply. They said to her, "Talk to him till he gives you a reply." When it was her turn, she talked to him again. He then said to her, "Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha." On that Um Salama said, "I repent to Allah for hurting you." Then the group of Um Salama called Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle and sent her to Allah's Apostle to say to him, "Your wives request to treat them and the daughter of Abu Bakr on equal terms." Then Fatima conveyed the message to him. The Prophet said, "O my daughter! Don't you love whom I love?" She replied in the affirmative and returned and told them of the situation. They requested her to go to him again but she refused. They then sent Zainab bint Jahsh who went to him and used harsh words saying, "Your wives request you to treat them and the daughter of Ibn Abu Quhafa on equal terms." On that she raised her voice and abused 'Aisha to her face so much so that Allah's Apostle looked at 'Aisha to see whether she would retort. 'Aisha started replying to Zainab till she silenced her. The Prophet then looked at 'Aisha and said, "She is really the daughter of Abu Bakr."
