Aisha & Muhammad
The Dramatic Life of a Little Child Married to the Prophet of Islam
Although radical Islam, the puritanical form of the religion, today affects Muslim nations the most, it is also the biggest threat to the security and stability of almost all non-Islamic nations. Echoing this grave reality, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in a recent speech at the Bloomberg headquarters in London warned: “…there is not a region of the world not adversely affected by Islamism and the ideology is growing… It is de-stabilising communities and even nations. It is undermining the possibility of peaceful co-existence in an era of globalisation.”
While the threat of Islamic violence and terrorism affecting global peace and security grips our mind most, yet women, particularly the Muslim women, are the worst victim of Islam. Touching on the issue, Blair said, “And quite apart from the actual loss of life [in radical Islamic violence], there is the loss of life opportunities for parts of the population mired in backward thinking and reactionary attitudes especially towards girls.”
A look into the Afghan, Saudi, Iran and other Islamic societies give us a clear idea about the deprivations, sufferings and abuses women experience under Islam. Across the Muslim world, women face sexual assault and rape in disparate proportions. As concerns non-Muslim women, from Pakistan to Egypt, they regularly face rape, and abduction and forcible conversion to Islam and marriage to Muslim thugs. Nigeria today is struggling for months to free a few hundred mainly Christian school-girls abducted by the Boko Haram Islamic militants, the Christian girls among them forcibly converted to Islam, forced to marry their militant abductors or are being sold into slavery. This incident reverberates with Prophet Muhammad’s attack of the Banu Quraiza Jews, killing of their men and capture of their women, who had to serve as sex-slaves to Prophet Muhammad and his followers. He also sold some of them into slavery.
