Consider the following hadith: A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: "Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old." [Sahih Muslim, 8:3310]. She was still playing with dolls at the time of her marriage. When Muhammad died, she was only 18, so she spent decades as an unmarried childless widow. Besides spinsterhood, what are some of the other consequences of marrying little girls much younger than you?
Several hadiths report that Muhammad married a six-year old girl. Our Debate Question is: "Would you ever marry a six-year old? Why or why not?"
