    Well for starters not everything written in every Islamic book is true.

    Secondly, there is hadith and there is history. The subject matter of Aisha's age is a matter of history not of hadith. The history books, most notable amongst them Seerat Ibn Hishaam, one of the earliest historians of Islam, that Aisha was a young girl when Abu Bakr became a Muslim. Everyone knows that Abu Bakr was amongst the earliest Muslims and so if Aisha was a young girl then, it doesn't make sense for her to be 6 or 9 at the time of the marriage to the Prophet which happened in Madina.

    In addition, if you note, all the wives of the Prophet were the ones who wanted to get married to the prophet starting from Khadija to the last one. Not a single time did the Prophet actually say that he wanted to get married to X. Which throws the stupid theory that the Prophet was (naudhobillah) a sex addict out of the window. (As well as the fact that all through his youthful years he had only one wife - Khadijah - and it was only when she passed away that he married others in old age).

    Very interesting. But then again, it's widely accepted that Aisha couldn't have been more than 10 when she married.

    I agree with Socrates. The Propher never would have put forward that he wanted to 'marry some girl/woman'.

    I don't know, however, what Aisha's age was when she got married to the Prophet. All I have learned is that she was young; you're young when you're 6, 9, 13 or even 15!

    It would be better if one of us asks some one learned instead of trying to speculate ourselves!

    He married women who other people were not marrying. (Almost all of his wives were widows or divorced).

    I was about to ask you the same thing.

    Right, i have one. In London I've come across some Muslim women wearing an abayah and over the abayah they have a very 'long' scarf...up to their knees. I was wondering what you call this? Any idea?

    Well, contrary to my expertise in women attire, movements, and specially abayahs, I can not pin point the exact name of the 'veil'.

    (That was SARCASM! :p:)
    Hey, how many points away are you from your first shiny?
