1. One of the wives of Prophet Muhammad. One of the greatest women in Islamic and human history. In spite of all that is said about her by haters, she is a symbol of purity as testified in the Holy Quran. Some people use twisted logic to attack the character of Prophet Muhammad by claiming that his marriage to her at the age of 9 is child abuse. That is false logic because:
a. It was normal at that time for girls to marry at that age, if they have reached the age of puberty. That can be testified by studying history.
b. No one at that time, including the enemies of the Prophet, used that excuse to attack his character.
c. Someone proposed to Aisha and was turned down before the Prophet proposed.
As any unbiased person can see, if we want to judge that marriage we need to put in its historical and social context. It is unfair to apply contemporary Western criteria to something which happened 14 centuries ago in a different culture.
I will name my daughter Aisha.
