Yes. Muhammad was undoubtedly a pedophile.
One of the most disturbing things about Islam is that it does not categorically condemn pedophilia. Indeed, it cannot, for to do so would draw attention to the pedophilia of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Muslims cannot categorically condemn pedophilia without denouncing him as a false prophet. In addition to Aisha, he had planned to marry a baby, but died as a result of a poisoning before he could do so.
Pedophilia is the sexual exploitation of children. The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders says that pedophilia is "an abnormal interest in children; a disorder that is characterized by recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies generally involving…children, or other non-consenting persons. Pedophilia is also a psycho-sexual disorder in which the fantasy or actual act of engaging in sexual activity with prepubertal children is the preferred or exclusive means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification. Pedophilia is defined by mental health professionals as a mental disorder, but the American legal system defines acting on a pedophilic urge as a criminal act."
Please note the words: "the preferred means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification." From the age of 54 until 64, Muhammad preferred the very young Aisha to the rest of his large harem and sex slaves. He had fantasies about Aisha before asking for her hand. He passed these fantasies off as "revelations" from the Supreme Being.
The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders reveals that some researchers attribute pedophilia to arrested emotional development; that is, the pedophile is attracted to children because he or she has never matured psychologically. Some regard pedophilia as the result of a distorted need to dominate a sexual partner. Since children are smaller and usually weaker than adults, they may be regarded as non-threatening potential partners. This drive for domination is sometimes thought to explain why most pedophiles are males.
Muhammad's emphasis on controlling or dominating others and his use of savage, irresistible force to make them "submit" to his will is consistent with the narcissistic urges of a pedophile who enjoys the domination and submission of a small, vulnerable person.
James Hord, a psychologist in Panama City, Florida, who specializes in treating sexually abused children, agrees that pedophiles "need to feel they have power and control in a relationship, which is
easy with children."
Pedophilia is an abuse of power
The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders: "Some pedophiles offer rationalizations or excuses that enable them to avoid assuming responsibility for their actions."
Muhammad rationalized and excused every urge to dominate and control others, even to commit the act of pedophilia, by using Allah as his alter ego, offering him a perfect justification for his other brutalities as well. The compliant source of his revelations gave Muhammad whatever justification he needed for unethical behavior.
The American Psychiatric Association says: "An adult who engages in sexual activity with a child is performing a criminal and immoral act that never can be considered normal or socially acceptable behavior."
Dutch psychologist Gerard van den Aardweg points out that "non-coerced" sex is a misnomer because there is always an element of coercion -- involving a misuse of adult authority, [my italics] and a misuse of the child's need for affection. If a researcher sees no harm, "it may be because he is using the wrong glasses...not because there is nothing to see."
Dr. David Finkelhor, a leading U.S. researcher in the field of child sexual abuse, describes some of the consequences of childhood seduction: confusion about sexual identity and sexual norms; inability to differentiate sex from love; confusion between care-getting and care-giving, with lowered respect for adult authority; guilt, shame, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, depression, vulnerability to drug and alcohol abuse, and impaired ability to judge the trustworthiness of others.
"Ultimately," says Dr. Finkelhor, "I do continue to believe that the prohibition on adult-child sexual contact is primarily a moral issue. While empirical findings have some relevance, they are not [to be] the final arbiter."
Arguing that Muhammad reflected the practices of his time is to admit that Muhammad was not inspired by God and was a false prophet. He did not raise the bar of morality to adult monogamy, but behaved the same as pagans. Moreover, by making marriage alliances, he revealed his true motive was his personal political power, rather than the religious or moral betterment of society. Far from showing Muhammad as a moral leader, this argument shows the reverse: that Muhammad was morally a pagan and a scheming politician. True revelation would have categorically denounced pedophilia as evil.
Islamists further use the "Fallacy of the Circular Argument" or "Begging the Question" to answer this question. They begin by stating "Muhammad was a moral example given by God, so he could not be pedophile." They are merely "begging" us to believe that Muhammad's character was excellent in spite of evidence to the contrary. Since no moral person could be a pedophile, they conclude Muhammad was not a pedophile. This is the basic Islamic argument, but this reasoning is circular and fallacious. There were many people in Muhammad's day who considered him immoral. The Hadiths record that he had most of them exterminated. The use of violence to persuade others to "submit" is not a moral argument, but another logical fallacy. The Fallacy of the Appeal to Force in place of a reasoned argument is the most prevalent argument in the ahadith and Qur'an.
Obviously, we all cringe when we think of pedophilia and acknowledge that it is a shameful act of immorality, whether committed by Muhammad, his followers, or others. The main conclusions of this article are: 1. Muhammad was a pedophile because he preferred his child bride to the others and planned to marry a baby
2. not everyone at the time approved of his marriage to Aisha, 3. Muhammad's pedophilia and multiple marriages
caused huge scandals in his small community that required special revelations to restore confidence in him; these are recorded at length in the Qur'an, 4. a true prophet would have been inspired by the Supreme Being to denounce the evil of pedophilia, rather than commit it, 5. pedophilia is backward, uncivilized and barbaric and destroys the life of a woman, 6. Muslims cannot condemn pedophilia even if they would like to, for they would have to abandon Islam. Muslims tacitly approve of pedophilia, even if they are embarrassed to say so. So mesmerized are Muslims by the example of Muhammad's pedophilia that they are unable to categorically denounce pedophilia or feel shame. It is prevalent in many Muslim countries disguised as child marriage
. The UN is today trying to stop the evil of child marriage among the backward Islamic regions of Asia and Africa. The future of some 300 million young girls depends on it.
Prophet Muhammad married Aisha when she was six, and had sexual intercourse with her while she still remained pre-pubescent at the age of nine lunar years. This fact has been recorded many times in Sahih ahadith. This article will discuss the Qur'anic verse that allows Paedophilia.
The Qur'an has stipulated a waiting period which women must observe before they can remarry. This waiting period must be observed after they are divorced, or if their husbands have died. In the Qur'an, this is called Iddah or Iddat (العدة). However, there is one exception to this requirement in Qur'an 33:49:
ياايها الذين امنوا اذا نكحتم المؤمنات ثم طلقتموهن من قبل ان تمسوهن فمالكم عليهن من عدة تعتدونهافمتعوهن وسرحوهن سراحا جميلا
Transliteration: Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo itha nakahtumu almuminati thumma tallaqtumoohunna min qabli an tamassoohunna fama lakum AAalayhinna min AAiddatin taAAtaddoonaha famattiAAoohunna wasarrihoohunna sarahan jameelan
Yusuf Ali: O ye who believe! If ye wed believing women and divorce them before ye have touched them, then there is no period that ye should reckon. But content them and release them handsomely.
Qur'an Text/Transliteration 33:49
From the verse above it is understood that Iddah (stipulated waiting period) is required if sexual contact has occurred within the marriage. If a woman is not touched by her husband, she should not have to observe any waiting period at all.
After the mention of women who have not had their marriage consummated, the Qur'an goes further - discussing the women who need to observe the 'iddah, and the span of time required. We see in Qur'an 65.4:
واللائي يئسن من المحيض من نسائكم ان ارتبتم فعدتهن ثلاثة اشهر واللائي لم يحضن واولات الاحمال اجلهن ان يضعن حملهن ومن يتق الله يجعل له من امره يسرا
Transliteration: Waalla-ee ya-isna mina almaheedi min nisa-ikum ini irtabtum faAAiddatuhunna thalathatu ashhurin waalla-ee lam yahidna waolatu al-ahmali ajaluhunna an yadaAAna hamlahunna waman yattaqi Allaha yajAAal lahu min amrihi yusran
Yusuf Ali: Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same): for those who carry (life within their wombs), their period is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.
Qur'an Text/Transliteration 65:4
Here the 'Iddah is prescribed to three categories of women:
First the phrase: “Yaisna min al-maheedhi” which means “those women who are desperate of menses” is an indication to women who reached the stage of menstruation but do not menstruate and of those who reached menopause. Desperate of menses underlines that it concerns women who though reached the age, fail to menstruate too. Their 'Iddah period is three months.
Next comes, “Wallaee Lam yahidhna” which means “those who have not menstruated yet” This group of females are pre-pubescent girls who have not yet menstruated. Here the 'Iddah prescribed for them is equal to the previous group of women (ie. three months).
Lastly, the women who are pregnant - their prescribed 'iddah is until they have given birth.
The above translation of the verse masks the real meaning, so the verse has to be studied in Arabic. The actual meaning of this verse and its implications are explicitly endorsed by tafsirs as will be shown below.
Getting married at an early age is something that is confirmed by the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), the consensus of the scholars and the actions of the companions, and the Muslims who came after them.
Moreover, the interest of Shariah proves it. So the claim that this was abrogated is not correct. And the Hadith did not include that meaning; it just states that a virgin woman is not to be married until consulted.
The evidence from the Qur'an is:
- The saying of Allah: "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]". (At-Talaq 65:4)
So, Allah set rulings of marriage, divorce and waiting period for the women who have not yet had menses, i.e. the young girls.
The Iddah (waiting period) does not take place except after marriage.
s(The pen does not record the deeds of three persons: the child until the age of puberty, the sleeping person until waking up, and the senile until sane.) Or, the age of fifteen is considered the age of adolescence. In the Two Sahihs, it is recorded that Ibn
Umar said, "I was presented in front of the Prophet on the eve of the battle of Uhud, while I was fourteen years of age, and he did not allow me to take part in that battle. But I was presented in front of him on the eve of the battle of Al-Khandaq (The Trench) when I was fifteen years old, and he allowed me (to join that battle).
Aziz commented when this Hadith reached him, "This is the difference between a child and an adult. There is a difference of opinion over whether pubic hair is considered a sign of adulthood, and the correct opinion is that it is. The Sunnah supports this view, according to a Hadith collected by Imam Ahmad from `Atiyah Al-Qurazi who said, We were presented to the Prophet on the day of Qurizah, whoever had pubic hair was killed, whoever did not was left free to go, I was one of those who did not, so I was left free. The Four Sunan compilers also recorded similar to it. At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Sahih. Allah's statement,
Many critics of Islam claim Muhammad's relationship with Aisha was a pedophilic relationship, therefore Muhammad was a pedophile.
Aisha (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."
"According to the DSM-IV definition, pedophilia involves sexual activity by an adult with a prepubescent child. Some individuals prefer females, usually 8- to 10-year-olds. Those attracted to males usually prefers slightly older children. Some prefer both sexes. While some are sexually attracted only to children, others also are sometimes attracted to adults.
Pedophiliac activity may involve undressing and looking at the child or more direct physical sex acts. All these activities are psychologically harmful to the child, and some may be physically harmful. In addition, individuals with pedophilia often go to great lengths to obtain photos, films or pornographic publications that focus on sex with children.
These individuals commonly explain their activities with excuses or rationalizations that the activities have "educational value" for the child, that the child feels "sexual pleasure" from the activities or that the child was "sexually provocative." However, child psychiatrists and other child development experts maintain that children are incapable of offering informed consent to sex with an adult. Furthermore, since pedophiliac acts harm the child, psychiatrists condemn publications or organizations that seek to promote or normalize sex between adults and children."
Islam: The Truth From Woman That Grew Up Muslim - 'Mohammed Was Rapist, Pedophile, Mass Murderer' And All Muslims Are Taught To Emulate Him
By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine
In the video below, Farrah Prudence, a woman that was raised in the Middle East as a Muslim, by moderate parents, has basically had it with those telling the truth about Islam being labeled racists.
An epic rant that every single person in America and across the world, especially countries taking in Muslim refugees without vetting them properly so that ISIS jihadists are slipping in as well, needs to listen to this video. This should be shared with friends, family, and on every social media outlet, because the hard hitting truth is one that is not being taught in schools when they teach about the Muslim heritage, something she addresses as well.
Her beginning point is that Islam is not a race of people, but is a religion, a belief system and in that belief system those raised as Muslim, reading the Koran, are taught to emulate the Prophet Mohammed..... then she proceeds to explain the brutal truth of exactly who Mohammed really was.
Farrah states Mohammed was a "rapist, pedophile, mass murderer, war monger, liar, thief, and adulterer" that owned hundreds of sex slaves.
She explains exactly what the Koran teaches, specifically to kill those that do not believe in Mohammed/Allah, to fight them and to cut off their heads. She speaks to the slavery and rape happening right now, in the name of Jihad, in the name of Islam, to Christians in Syria and in Iraq.
Towards the end she has a message for blacks as well.... stating that millions upon millions of black slaves are still being kept in Muslim countries, yet no one is talking about it.
She points to the LGBT community arguing over the refusal of someone to bake a "cake," while homosexuals are being tossed off of buildings by Jihadists, calling the entire LGBT community hypocrites.
The same is said about feminists, fighting for "equal rights" here, but not standing up for hundreds of thousands of women wjo are being are brutalized, raped and kept as sex slaves today... calling the feminists hypocrites as well.
Farrah encourages schools to teach about Islam and Muslims, but not the politically correct, watered down "sugar coated" version, but the truth about Mohammed. As she states, you can't teach about Christianity with teaching about Christ, cannot teach Judaism with talking about Moses, Buddhism with talking about Buddha, so how can they teach about Islam without telling the truth about Mohammed and his 11 wives, specifically his most favorite... the nine year old.
She also has a message for someone that said "saying all Muslims are terrorists is like saying all Italians are in the mafia"...... her response to them is "You're A Dimwit! - Italians are a race, a country, they come from a country, they are not a religion, they're not a belief system, so get over yourselves and start educating yourselves."
Below is the original video from Farrah Prudence, but another mirrored version, found here, has garnered over 460,000 hits since November 7, 2015.
[Update] Via Carrl Hunt:
"This woman, based on her YouTube profile, has an impressive resume:
Farrah Prudence is a freelance writer, linguist and expert on Middle Eastern culture and Islamic religion. She lived in the Middle East for over 10 years and worked with the American military through JTF for 13 consecutive months in TSF DOCEX in Iraq. Farrah Attended McMaster University in Canada and is currently an Act! for America chapter leader. Born to a Muslim father and Catholic mother, who later converted, Farrah, despite of a fatwa on her head, is determined to educate people about the dangers of Islam and Shari'a Law.
God bless (and protect) Farrah for speaking the truth."
