On Islamic Doctrine

Thanks to Robert Spencer for the explication of Islamic doctrine below and MEMRI for the video from LBC TV Lebanon (2008).

"Over the years I’ve gotten a great deal of abuse for telling the truth about Islam and jihad here, but probably more for pointing out that Islamic tradition says that Muhammad married Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when she was nine, and that he is exemplary in this for Islamic law, than for anything else. See, to take just one of many examples, here. Of course, the righteous indignation over my alleged misrepresentation of this issue is simply another manifestation of the general deceptive smokescreen that Islamic supremacists deploy in the West.

But this MEMRI clip proves the only point I have ever wanted to make about this issue: that Muhammad’s example in this has been taken and is still taken as worthy of imitation.

“Dr. Ahmad Al-Mub’i, a Saudi Marriage Officiant: It Is Allowed to Marry a Girl at the Age of One, If Sex Is Postponed. The Prophet Muhammad, Whose Model We Follow, Married ‘Aisha When She Was Six and Had Sex with Her When She Was Nine,” from MEMRITV."
