It's far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different.

Myths of Muhammad

The Myth:

Muhammad Condemned
Sex with Children


"Our Prophet (peace be upon him) was the best example of proper ethical and moral behavior for mankind."

The Truth:

The legitimacy of "marrying" pre-pubescent girls who have not yet had their "monthly courses" is established both in the Quran and in the "perfect example" set by Muhammad for his Muslim followers.

The Quran:
Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same) (65:4)
The rule concerns divorce, which obviously implies marriage.  Muhammad wanted believing men to observe a three month waiting period before evicting their wives, to make sure that they weren’t pregnant.

Muhammad elsewhere encouraged his men to marry “young girls” for sexual pleasure:
"Allah's Apostle said to me, "Have you got married O Jabir?"  I replied, "Yes."  He asked "What, a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "Not a virgin but a matron."  He said, "Why did you not marry a young girl who would have fondled with you?" (Bukhari 59:382)
Lest there be any doubt by what he meant by “young,” Muhammad set the example by marrying and having sex with Aisha when she was only 9-years-old:
'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: “Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine.” (Sahih Muslim 3309) This is confirmed in many other hadith as well.
According to the most reliable traditions, Aisha brought her dolls to Muhammad’s house for play (Muslim 3341) and he would fondle the little girl in the tub while taking baths with her (Bukhari 6:298).  Aisha was just a teenager by the time Muhammad died, but she had already spent over half her life in marriage to himEven worse for Muslims is that part of the Quran was actually "revealed" while Muhammad was in bed with this little girl:
[Muhammad said] "…the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha." (Bukhari 47:755)
So, no... Muhammad did not condemn sex with children; he engaged in sex with children.
