EarlyMarriage-part1 (html)

False claims and attacks against early marriage in Islam are addressed, such as:
1) Islam's age of consent was low in history
2) Islam allowed marriage at puberty in pre-modern times, which caused psychological harm because puberty was too young to give informed consent (resulting in child sexual abuse and pedophilia)
3) Islam allowed procreation at puberty in pre-modern times, which was more dangerous to the younger mothers
4) Islam allows marriage at puberty in modern times, which causes sexual and psychological harm
