"Ayesha Bint Abu Bakr" also spelled "Aisha". Aisha was the third of the Prophet Muhammad's eleven wives. She was six when he married her and nine when he consummated the marriage.
Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65:
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Islamic scholars might try and justify Mohammad’s child-bride with twisted logic, such as this was a common practice for Arabs at the time and that this was a political marriage. Regardless of any excuse, a 54 year old man having sex with a nine year old child is always considered rape. Children are easily deceived and have an inability to protect themselves. Decent people are appalled by this disgraceful act. Then there are Muslims who deny the authenticity of the Hadiths regarding Aisha’s age. The question is why so many followers of Muhammad would fabricate so many false hadiths about the age of Ayesha, which incidentally confirm each other?
Muslim 1: Hey, are you sure its okay for you to have sex with Sarah? She's a nine-year old girl and you're a fifty-three year old man.
Muslim 2: Sure its okay, our Prophet Muhammad is the best example for mankind; all his actions set precedents. Since he had sex with nine year old Ayesha I am legally allowed to have with Nelofar under Islamic law. Praise Allah.
