Islamic Child Abuse
4 November 2014
As I documented in a previous article, the devil is literally in the details when it comes to Muslims trying to faithfully live out, as they have for the past 1,400 years, what the Qur'an teaches. Moreover, the plight of many women in Islam is not at all a pretty picture.

For children in many parts of the world, growing up in a Muslim environment is very damaging to their physical, emotional and sexual well-being. As the links below clearly show, issues like child brides and the indoctrination of youth into violence and martyrdom are woven into the very fabric of Islam itself.

Instead of growing up into an adult life of goodness, too many children under Islam are being abused inwardly and outwardly, causing them immeasurable, long-lasting harm. Seeing that adult soldiers and victims of sexual abuse often suffer trauma for the rest of their lives, how much more do children, who are much less capable, both emotionally and physically, of coping with such horrors? In his book The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion, author Robert Spencer writes:
The Qur'an and Islamic tradition are clear that the Prophet [Muhammad] is the supreme example of behavior for Muslims to follow. His importance to hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide is rooted in the Qur'an, the Muslim holy book.

In brief, he is “an excellent model of conduct” (Qur'an 33:21). He demonstrates “an exalted standard of character” (68:4), and indeed, “he who obeys the Messenger [Muhammad], obeys Allah” (4:80).

The Qur'an frequently tells Muslims to obey Allah and Muhammad: while the Muslim holy book takes for granted that Muhammad is fallible (cf. 48:2; 80:1-12), it also instructs Muslims repeatedly to obey Muhammad (3:32; 3:132; 4:13; 4:59; 4:69; 5:92; 8:1; 8:20; 8:46; 9:71; 24:47; 24:51-56; 33:33; 47:33; 49:14; 58:13; 64:12). Any devout Muslim will take this seriously.
For the chilling details about Muhammad’s “excellent conduct” and “exalted character,” see:
One aspect of Muhammad’s example which delighted Muslim men have eagerly followed for 1,400 years was his taking a child bride. When around 50 years of age, Muhammad was betrothed to six-year-old Aisha. The marriage was consummated when Muhammad had sex with her at the age of 9. For a very detailed look at this issue and the controversies surrounding it, see: For a somewhat shorter and less technical article, see Was Muhammad a Pedophile? In the end, the author is hesitant to label Muhammad a pedophile. But if you take the standard dictionary definition — “an adult who is sexually attracted to young children“ — and then consider the details of Muhammad’s life, I don’t see how you can come to any other conclusion.

It seems obvious to me that Muhammad, Muslim men who have taken child brides for the past 1,400 years, and Muslim men who take child brides in our day (see headlines below) are all pedophiles who use Islam to justify their shameful lusts. Let’s consider two men — one who calls himself a Christian and one who calls himself a Muslim. They both engage in polygamy, pedophilia, slave-owning (including adult and child female sex slaves captured in war), wife-beating, murder, lying, physical violence against unbelievers, beheading, stealing, revenge, rape, gluttony, greed and more. What is the difference between these two men who commit identical acts?

For the man who calls himself a Christian, he is NOT following the example of Yeshua (Isa, Jesus), and he is NOT following the teaching of the New Testament. By his gross disobedience, he is proving the he is NOT a true Christian.

For the man who calls himself a Muslim, he IS following the example of Muhammad, and he IS following the teaching of the Qur'an. By his devoted obedience, he is proving that he IS a true Muslim. Yeshua never abused a child in any way. He had a true, pure love for them, and not the false love of people who want to use children for their own selfish purposes. Yeshua said,
“Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14b)

“If anyone causes one of these little ones to sin, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come! ... See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of My Father in heaven... and He is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.” (Matthew 18:6,7,10,14b)
The harsh reality is that, under Islam, children ARE being led into sin, ARE being hindered from coming to Yeshua, ARE being despised, and ARE perishing. The headlines below are just a small sample of what is taking place all the time, all around the world. Read it and weep!
