This topic is highly debated among Muslims and Non-Muslims scholars, whether Islam allows Pedophilia or not? We know one thing beyond the shadow of doubt that Muhammad the Prophet of Islam, married Aisha when she was just 6 years old. There are dozens of narration from canonical scriptures of Islam, which proves the above statement. Even Aisha herself accepted that when she was married to Muhammad, she was just 6 years old, and when he (Muhammad) consummated her (Aisha) she was just 9 years old. This is an example of pedophilia, by a man who is worshiped by 1.5 billion humans. Who according to Muslims, is the best man, who ever lived on face of earth, and should be followed by entire mankind. But our issue is not to prove that whether Muhammad was pedophile or not, as it is already proven that he was, from Aisha’s narrations found in authentic hadith, to read about Muhammad being pedophile, visit here. But in this article I want to discuss whether Muslims are allowed to practice Pedophilia or not.
Allah himself have ordered the Muslims to follow the Prophet of Islam, if they want Allah to love and forgive them for their sins. Allah says in Quran 3:31:-
Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
In above verse Allah is putting his words in mouth of Muhammad, to ask his followers to follow him, so Muslims are bound to follow Muhammad. They are even threatened indirectly by Allah to follow Muhammad, and if they fail to follow the Prophet of Allah, they will be fuel of hell fire. Allah says in Quran 4:80:-
He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah ; but those who turn away – We have not sent you over them as a guardian.
So what we understand by above verse is that, for Muslims it is obligatory to follow Muhammad. If he was pedophile, Muslims too need to marry young girl before they reaches the age of adolescence. If he killed innocent people, it is again obligatory for Muslims to kill innocent people in name of Allah. So, we can say using above evidences that pedophilia is not only allowed in Islam, it is obligatory for Muslims to practice it, as their Prophet did.
But this is not all, lets see what Islamic Scholars too have to say on pedophilia. As per Islamic Scholars ruling on marrying young girls is as following:-
Marrying a young girl before she reaches the age of adolescence is permitted in sharee’ah; indeed it was narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this point.
(a) Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“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”
In this verse we see that Allaah has made the ‘iddah in the case of divorce of a girl who does not have periods – because she is young and has not yet reached puberty – three months. This clearly indicates that Allaah has made this a valid marriage.
(b) It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her when she was six years old, he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine and she stayed with him for nine years.
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4840; Muslim, 1422)
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married ‘Aa’ishah when she was six years old and consummated the marriage when she was nine.”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim; Muslim says ‘seven years’) [Source]
Even Islamic scholars are not ashamed of such an act of a man, who claims to be Prophet of God, and the first soul to be created by God, and an example to be followed by mankind, practicing pedophilia. Instead, they are encouraging Muslims to practice such heinous act which leads to child sexual abuse. Leave pedophilia, it is even allowed for Muslims to marry infant, as demonstrated by Abul Kasem.
Case of one of two wives suckling the other-If a man marry an infant and an adult and the latter should give milk to the former, both wives become prohibited with respect to that man [their husband], because if they were to continue united in marriage to him, it would imply the propriety of joint cohabitation with the foster-mother and her foster-daughter, which is prohibited, in the same manner as joint cohabitation with a natural mother and daughter-It is to be observed on this occasion, that if the husband should not have had carnal connexion with the adult wife, she is not entitled to any dower whatever, because the separation has proceeded from her, before consummation :-but the infant has a claim to her half dower.
[Hedaya Vol. I Book III, page 71 (Ref. 6)]
These rulings, commands, and preaching are inhumane, and against healthy minded people. Any rational being would never accept such a religion which authorizes Pedophilia, and commands to follow a pedophile Prophet. The more people become aware of these facts about Islam, the more nails are added to coffin of Islam. Now its time for Muslims to remove the curtains of blind love for Muhammad and realize that whom they are following as a messenger of God, in reality was a man who suffered from serious psychiatric disorders, and had sex with a child of 9 years, while himself being of 53.
Muslims till date practice pedophilia as its is allowed/obligatory for them, and this crime can only end with the end of Islam.
