Mohammed would get divine inspiration when he slept with his 9 year old wife

Mohammed would get divine inspiration when he slept with his 9 year old wife

Volume 5, Book 57, Number 119:
Narrated Hisham's father:

The people used to send presents to the Prophet on the day of 'Aisha's turn. 'Aisha said, "My companions (i.e. the other wives of the Prophet) gathered in the house of Um Salama and said, "0 Um Salama! By Allah, the people choose to send presents on the day of 'Aisha's turn and we too, love the good (i.e. presents etc.) as 'Aisha does. You should tell Allah's Apostle to tell the people to send their presents to him wherever he may be, or wherever his turn may be." Um Salama said that to the Prophet and he turned away from her, and when the Prophet returned to her (i.e. Um Salama), she repeated the same, and the Prophet again turned away, and when she told him the same for the third time, the Prophet said, "O Um Salama! Don't trouble me by harming 'Aisha, for by Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman amongst you except her."

The question that begs answering is, who would get divine inspiration while sleeping with a 9 year old girl? What sentient being would give M his divine readings of the Quran as he was engaged in his love making prowess with a 9 year old woman?

More interestingly enough, which verses in the Quran were inspired when he made love with Aesha, the 9 year old.

Needless to say, it is implausible to think that any just and moral divine being would give "divine inspiration" to a prophet as he would sexually ravage the body of a 9 year old.

In a related story, an 8 year old girl in Yemen sought divorce from her 30 year old husband for sexual abuse. I wonder why the man did not use the defence that M did it.
