Why did Allah allow things which are considered questionable today?


Salam, a christian asked: Why did the prophet (saw) married a 6 years old, made accepted stonings etc.? Why did Allah allow that Muslims nowadays have to justify for things the prophet has done and which are considered questionable by today´s standards?


wa ‘alaykum salam,

Because today’s standards are based on false understandings of life and its purpose, its ways and means. In the past, when Muslims were strong, they did not have to justify anything, but today, in our weak state, Muslims feel obliged to explain everything in the light of ‘modern’ cultural sensitivities. However, such answers will never satisfy the objectors, who in reality are objecting to the idea that we human beings were created by a Lord to whom we owe obeisance and servanthood.
