Hi, I like to study various religions that are different from my own and while I feel that all the main Abrahamic faiths are legit, there is this part about Islam that really bothers me. It has to do with Muhammed and his child marriage to Aisha, I have read it in the Quran and it says he even consemated his marriage with her while she was still a child, now that is just sick!
I have asked a few Muslims on my college campus about this and they all ignore me completely, they told me "oh your a Jew you don't understand" or "girls matured younger back then" the former is just silly and the latter is just rediculously false. Now I may not be a Muslim so I admit I could be misinterpeting things, but from my understanding it sounded like Muhammed raped a little kid.
I don't want to make anyone upset, it's just a question that I would like an honest answer to. I don't understand it, why would a person who claims to follow God do such a sick thing?
