Aisha: Muhammad’s favorite wife

An excerpt, taken right out of my upcoming book Muhammad by Mohamed: The Essential Book of Heresy ISIS Doesn’t Want you to Read. 

For your perusal and enjoyment.

Hardline Muslims see Aisha’s young age at betrothal to the prophet as a credit to her character rather than a mark against his. Today, however, this marriage is often seen for what it truly was: the pedophilic lust of a fifty-three-year-old man.

Aisha is referred to by Sunni Muslims as Umm ul-Mu’mineen (Mother of the Believers) and sometimes as Sitna Aisha (Our Grandmother Aisha). The reason behind such honorifics is, of course, to give the impression of maturity in the young Aisha—bathing her in the wholesome light of one’s beloved grand-parent and effectively masking the underlying reality that she was a preteen when married off to the prophet. It is nothing more than a feeble attempt by the faithful at sidestepping this disturbing reality while seeming to give genuine praise to one of the relatively few female figures in religious history.

To be fair, betrothal to children in days past was commonplace (and not by any means the exclusive domain of Muslims). This of course does not excuse commoditizing female children—but it is an important fact to remember when discussing our ancestors’ lifestyles.

Besides being morally reprehensible, such beliefs potentially open up a whole new line of defense for Catholic priests (as well as various other non-accredited molesters). One need not look further than Iran where the age of consent seems to be firmly pressed under a metaphorical boulder filled with the collective pent-up ejaculate of repressed believers.

One thought on “Aisha: Muhammad’s favorite wife

  1. Finding out about this is one of the major reasons I started to question and then left the religion-drifted away and started looking for something better. The tacit approval in the community of this kind of abuse is…a cultural death which means that I cannot reconcile with it.

    This is a tragically sad cartoon but then sometimes the most incisive satire is like that.
