for crying out loud that was just how it was
It was just considered the norm then despite being a taboo now.
back then people only lived to like 50 so people married young. at 10 a lot of the young men had jobs. they married at 15 or older. the woman married younger. 9 years old probably was considered young. 13 was more appropriate.
no it wasn't christians who did it were sinners as well
your idea of a sin is not the same as is was then. Christians married children all the time back then. it was an accepted practice, not a sin.
they consider him to be a prophet he must commit little sins
but since marrying girls that age was a common practice at the time it was in no way a crime. it was normal. even for Christians. you can't judge someone from 1500 years ago by rules made up relatively recently.
no muhammad married her when she was a child he was what they call (the muslims) a prophet if so it disapproves him as being a prophet but qualifies him as being a paedophile
your ancestors married children too. it was not seen as wrong back then by Christians either. you are judging someone for a rule that got made up later.
you've created about 5 threads saying someone from the 7th century did things that aren't acceptable in the 21st century.
