PREACHING «MARRIAGES» OF ADULTS WITH CHILDREN.
MOHAMMED, THE PROPHET OF THE RELIGION ISLAM, ‘MARRIED’ HIS FOURTH WIFE, SHE WAS A 6 YEARS OLD, HE WAS OVER 50 YEARS OLD.
This petition aims at letting people know about a simple fact:
MOHAMMED, PROPHET OF THE ISLAMIC RELIGION, ‘MARRIED’ HIS FOURTH ‘WIFE’. HE WAS OVER 50 YEARS OLD WHEN THE POLIGAMOUS ‘MARRIAGE’ TOOK PLACE, THE ‘SPOUSE’ WAS A LITTLE GIRL CALLED AISHA, SHE WAS 6 YEARS OLD.Mohammed married Aisha when she was 6 and the ‘marriage’ (I am sorry there is unfortunately no other word around to qualify that daily officialized horrific shame and guilt of our societies) was said to be consummated she was 9. There is some debate within Islam about her age, but the overwhelming consensus is 6. Below are the hadith (records of the actions of Mohammed that are very much a part of Islam) in support of this:
Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old. Sahih Bukhari 5:58:236
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old. Sahih Muslim 8:3310
From the hadith of the Sunan of Abu Dawud, volume 2, #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."
“These texts are direct translation of the Hadith, Arabic Ḥadīth (“News” or “Story”), also spelled Hadīt , record of the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, revered and received as a major source of religious law and moral guidance, second only to the authority of the Qurʾān, the holy book of Islam.
Hadith has become a synonym for the term Sunnah.”
However, the plight is not more about what the scripturessay but about the thousands of documents produced by Muslim preachers, believers or followers entirely condoning, honoring and recommending this marriage of an old man with a young child.
This information is accurate. Please, be aware that ‘these teachings’ legitimised as fundamental to the Islamic religion can be found by the thousands on the internet via a very simple word search.
Preaching that the marriage of Mohammed to a little girl is appropriate or can be taken as a, or the model has grave and beyond horrid and vile consequences. From child marriage in countries like Saudi Arabia, to the many stories of Imams being caught on camera in Britain agreeing to marry children and presenting it as a suitable practise under Islam.
The campaign and petition have two purposes: One, to ensure that people know what happens. The ‘marriages’ in themselves but also the fact that marriages of children with adults are in fact professed via the teaching of Islam. Two, it would then ask the government to sanction direct or indirect incentives and incitation to paedophilia and child marriage (paedophile marriages). Pragmatically, it means that Islamic teachers should be condemning child marriage systematically, and be severely sanctioned when advocating it. To praise Mohammed’s life without expressively condemning child marriage is in fact support to paedophilia.
The prophet Mohammed is highly praised and constantly cited as being the prophet and only prophet of Islam. His name is introduction to almost any communication and verbal or written exchange in culture Islam.
No one needs to enter madrasas, Islamic schools, to figure out that Mohammed’s life is given as example and model.
STOP CHILD MARRIAGE AND CHILD MARRIAGE PREACHING.
PS: These acts or arrangements have traditionally been called child marriage. Still calling them child marriage hopefully would remind us who needs to be, by any means, protected. To call them paedophilic marriage could focus on the criminalization of paedophile and paedophilic cultures permitting, encouraging it. To call it ‘child marriage’ stops naming what, once we know, make us all complicit of, since not stopping it.
PS: Please note that two previous petitions has been refused or removed without any warnings or adequate justifications, also on main petitions specialised sites, petitions have limited time to get signed.
The petition I attempted via the UK government website, did not match the criteria, and had been catalogued under unpetitionable cultural matters.
