But that's the thing. One consummates the marriage once she hits puberty. Biologically that's a woman. Islamically, that's a woman. Rephrase your words that's disrespectful. "I dont care what religion says"Allowing 6 year olds to be married is terrible I dont care what religion says
First I dont care be offended, second that's clearly wrong 3 out of the 4 major schools of thought believe it is permissible as soon as she is not physically hurt from the act.But that's the thing. One consummates the marriage once she hits puberty. Biologically that's a woman. Islamically, that's a woman. Rephrase your words that's disrespectful. "I dont care what religion says"
There are Adults that play with dolls, it doesn't mean anything. Aisha was physically and mentally mature when the marriage was consummated!What determines if a person is mentally mature or not? I mean, it was said that she was playing with dolls with her friends when she was called to get ready for her nikkah... That seems like a baby to me.
And another one“As dolls were becoming closely identified with medicalized norms of girls’ behaviour, many adult doll-type products began production in the 1920s and 1930s. Some of these, such as the Lenci felt dolls from Italy, crossed over from adult mascot or living room decorations into the realm of children’s toys. Others-such as the pinchusion dolls and porcelain dolls in the shape of hair tidies, bookends, perfume bottles, vases powder bowls, powder puffs, lamp bases and face brooches- would have been familiar items to the younger teen at least in their personal home environment and their mother’s room, if not standing on the girl’s dressing table o decorating her bedroom. DURING THE 1920S, IT WAS TRENDY FOR ADULT WOMEN TO CARRY DOLLS IN PUBLIC, especially in urban areas, as a fashion accessory, and perfume flasks, purses and handbags were produced with doll or teddy bear faces. The Nancy Ann Story Book Company of California produced small dolls in series that encouraged young girls to collect the whole set. The Nancy Ann Dolls crossed over from the younger to a young ADULT AUDIENCE, who regarded them a mascots and ornaments. Because the Nancy Ann dolls were extremely popular, the company had to switch to locally produced dolls when the supply sources in Axis countries became unavailable during World War II.” (Girl Culture: An Encyclopedia [Claudia Mitchell, Jacqueline Reid-Walsh (editors), GP – Greenwood Press, 2008] by Dr. Juliette Peers, volume 1, page 28)
“Collectible dolls are often given as presents to girls by doting parents and grandparents, as well as being bought as personal items by adult women.” (Girl Culture: An Encyclopedia [Claudia Mitchell, Jacqueline Reid-Walsh (editors), GP – Greenwood Press, 2008] by Dr. Juliette Peers, volume 1, page 36)
I have heard that Hadith many times but I'm confused. If her older sister Asma is exactly 10 years older than her, and Asma was 27 during Hijra that would make Aisha 17 during Hijra. And the prophet pbuh and Aisha's marriage consummated in second of year of Hijrah which would make Aisha 18 or 19.Aisha said it herself in many Hadiths she was 9 when the marriage was consummated. In Islam, if a girl is physically and mentally mature for the marriage to be consummated, it is halal providing there's no harm in it and it's consensual. Life expectancy was short in those days and a 9 year old back then wasn't the same as a 9 year old today. Also it was culturally and socially acceptable in those days.
Narrated `Aisha: that the Prophet (ﷺ) married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that `Aisha remained with the Prophet (ﷺ) for nine years (i.e. till his death).
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5134)
It was narrated that 'Aishah said: "The Messenger of Allah married me when I was six, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine."
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 3379)
