New York cleric criticized Muslim apologists for trying to "curry favor" from people whose history is "full of shame, disgrace, [and] horror." Ibn Muneer said that since according to Western values a man who marries a nine-year-old is a pedophile and a 45-year-old man who marries an 18 year old is a cradle robber, the Prophet Muhammad would be castigated regardless of Aisha's age when he married her. Citing the Quran, he said that "the Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their way," and that they will "slander, lie, invent, propagate, and wage [ideological] war" against Muslims. He added that one should avoid being apologetic because "you can run, but you can't hide, from the malicious slander… of the envious infidels."

An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
Here is a proof quote from the Islamic scriptures (Hadiths) that Muslims consider authentic record that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).
