Dear readers, we have recently found some references from MGA in terms of the age of Aisha at her marriage and that of child marriage in general. We are searching for additional quotes.
“With reference to Hazrat ‘A’ishah’sra age on her wedding ceremony, it has been written that she was 9 years of age. Firstly, there is no evidence that the Holy Prophetsa stated this, nor had there been any revelation in regards to this. Nor is it substantiated from the Akbaar-e-Mutawaatirah, [Saying of the Prophet Muhmmadsa reported by a large number of people] that she was certainly 9 years. It has only been taken from one narrator. The Arab people did not keep birth certificates because they were unlettered and in view of their circumstances, a difference of two or three years is normal. Even in our country, many illiterate people cannot tell the difference between a couple of years. Moreover, if hypothetically, we were even to accept this, after having calculated each and every day, that she was in fact 9 years old; even then no intelligent person could object – research doctors have come to agree upon that girls can attain maturity even at the age of 9; in fact, they can even have children at the age of 7. And doctors have proven this through major observations. Many hundreds have witnessed with their own eyes that in this country 9 year old girls have had children.””(Nurul Quran, No.2, Ruhani Khazain, V.9, pp.377-378).
“Hazrat ‘A’ishahra being 9 years is only found among baseless statements. It is not proven by any Hadith or the Quran (Arya Dharam, Ruhani Khazain, v.10, p.64).
Mirza Bashir Ahmad wrote in 1920
The author of one of the most comprehensive biographies on the Prophet Muhammadsa, The Life and Character of the Seal of Prophets, suggests that Hazrat ‘A’ishahra may have been twelve years old. Since girls mature quickly in hot climates, it would not have been anything unusual for her to have been married at this age.
