PROPHET’S (PBUH) MARRIAGE WITH YOUNG AISHA (RA)

All praise be to Allah.

Often we come across people who mock our beloved Prophet (Peace be upon him) and his marriage to Aisha (May Allah bless her). The fanatics claim that he married a six-year-old child and talk of all the insults about our beloved Prophet and our mother Aisha( May Allah bless them both).

One often thinks what must be the response to these people.

Firstly: ‘Aisha’s covenant of marriage was conducted when she was six years old, but the actual commencement of the marriage took place when she was nine-years of age. She was the only virgin he married. Marrying at such young age was not the exception in Arabia at that time. In fact, many were married in the young age period of 9-12 when they were physically mature. Furthermore, had this been something degrading and immoral, the enemies of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) from the Pagans would have loved to use this against the character of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and ‘Aisha’s father (Abu Bakr, may Allah be please with him), the first one to believe the Prophet (Peace be upon him) and support his propagation of Islam. Not to mention this would have been a major block against the spread of Islam amongst the Arabs if the Prophet (Peace be upon him) would appear as a man of “uncontrolled sexual drive.”

They would have resorted to this especially when they didn’t leave any stone unturned in insulting Prophet(peace be upon him) including magician, poet etc. They would have said any such thing had it not been a norm.

The fact that they did not attempt even to consider this marriage as a tool against the integrity of the Prophet (Peace be upon him stands as a strong irrefutable evidence that such marriages were of the norm, not the exception. In so many societies, it was even considered that the girl who does not get married before she reaches fifteen years of age as someone being “late” on the scale of marriage timing! In fact, such marriages were common in Asia, East Europe, Spain and Portugal.

On the other hand, it was known that one of the Pagans (Jubair bin Mut’im bin ‘Adiye) was interested to marry ‘Aaisha before her engagement to the Prophet (Peace be upon him), but her mother (Umm Romaan, May Allah be please with her), rejected him. This proves that she was physically mature for marriage. Her family sought the Prophet (Peace be upon him) because of his noble character as her mother asserted when she told her husband (Abu Bakr Peace be upon him) of her intent.

There was a great wisdom in her marriage whereby ‘Aaisha witnessed the revelation and the rulings of Islam pertaining to the most particular and private matters of women, transmitting that to the men and women of the world. She reported about 2100 narrations from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) covering rulings, worships, and transactions. She was the greatest woman scholar in Islam and she had many students of knowledge from the companions of the Prophet Peace be upon him).

May Allah bless the family of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
