Greetings, First of all, it doesn't matter what religion you follow in order to love a Prophet. I've seen Muslims that love Jesus, Moses, David, Jacob, etc even though they are not the Prophets that represented Islam. Islam and all other Abrahamic religions are the same. People just don't seem to understand this and this is the reason to why there is a large gap between us. All the Abrahamic religions ask you to believe in one God, the All Mighty. Secondly, yes he did marry Ayesha at the age of 9. However, it is unknown if she was really 9. Some say she was 15. Some say she was 17. Yes, he did have 9 wives, but he never married until his first wife, Khadijah died. All the 9 wives after Khadijah, he didn't marry them for the sake of love. Those were the women that were abandoned in the battlefield by their husbands, families, etc that the Prophet took them to shelter them and provide them with aid by claiming it as marriage. He only loved one woman in his life and she was Khadijah. Mohammad's first wife. As for Ayesha, it was more of her dad's plan than Mohammed's to marry the Prophet. Back in those days, when a girl got her periods that meant that she was ready to be married and a lady of the family. Today, however, many people take that specific fact and try to bash Islam, claiming it is a violent religion that supports underage marriage and sex. It doesn't. What about ancient Greeks? They existed way before Islam, yet they married all their women when they were 9-15. I can give you a list of the famous people in history that married women when they were at ages of 9,10,11,12. Today it's wrong, back then it wasn't. PS: Ayesha agreed on the marriage. If she had gone against it, she would never have had married P. Mohammed. She wanted the marriage just as much as her father did.
