    I am just wondering about the whole Aisha thing. Why was it okay for the prophet (swt) to marry her at 6 years and then consumate at 9. Isn’t that the same as hild marriage? I’m just confused.

      Because the prophet is allowed to do things that others can’t ex. married more than 4 wives at a time, married a child (the Quran allows this though, as pre-menstrual girls can still be married and divorced)
