    Professor, yes, he was OK with marrying girls six and over, but not to have sex with them until they were nine. These were the first anti-pedophilia laws ever, way ahead of western practices with girls at the time. Some would say that islam has failed to keep up with the times, but as sex is legalised by statute in certain circumstances for 10 year old girls in ACT, then clearly many muslim countries' governments are well ahead of one of ours - for instance, in Pakistan sex and marriage is forbidden until 18 for males and females. Certainly there are many, many cultural problems to overcome in enforcing that law, but at least they aren't caving in like the ACT.
