All the wives Muhammad married were not virgin, nor were they young or beautiful. So how can anyone claim that he was a lustful man? He was a man not a god. Moreover, he undertook the financial responsibilities of his large family, without having large resources.

New Delhi (ABC Live India):  The controversial remarks made by the spokespersons of the ruling party over Prophet Muhammad marriage with his third wife Aisha(minor) has created an uncalled geopolitical burden for India recently.

The ABC Research Team keeping close watch over this issue refers a book titled “An Interpretation of Islam” written by Laura Veccia Vaglieri Italian Orientalist so that our readers can understand the truth and make opinion accordingly.

The Book says, “Throughout the years of his youth, Muhammad only married one woman, even though the sexuality of man is at its peak during this period. Although he lived in the society he lived in, wherein plural marriage was considered the general rule, and divorce was very easy - he only married one woman, although she was older than him. He was a faithful husband to her for twenty-five years, and did not marry another woman, except after her death. He at that time was fifty years old. He married each of his wives thereafter for a social or political purpose; such that he wanted to honor the pious women, or wanted the loyalty of certain tribes so that Islam would spread amongst them. All the wives Muhammad married were not virgin, nor were they young or beautiful. So how can anyone claim that he was a lustful man? He was a man not a god. Moreover, he undertook the financial responsibilities of his large family, without having large resources. He was just and fair towards them all and did not differentiate between them at all. He followed the practice of previous Prophets, whom no one objected to their plural marriage. Is the reason why people object to the plural marriage of Muhammad the fact that we know the minute details of his life, and know so little of the details of the lives of the Prophets before him?”
