Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu'bi: It Is Allowed to Marry a Girl at the Age of One, If Sex Is postponed.Note: Muhammad was 54 years old when he married Aisha
Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu'bi: The Prophet Muhammad is the model we follow. He took 'Aisha to be his wife when she was six, but he had sex with her only when she was nine.
Interviewer: When she was six?
Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu'bi: He married her at the age of six, and he consummated the marriage, by having sex with her for the first time, when she was nine. We consider the Prophet Muhammad to be our model.
Dr. Ahmad Al-Mu'bi: People find themselves in all kinds of circumstances. Take, for example, a man who has two, three, or four daughters. He does not have any wives, but he needs to go on a trip. Isn't it better to marry his daughter to a man, who will protect and sustain her, and when she reaches the proper age, he will have sex with her? Who says all men are ferocious wolves?
