This is the problem, isn't it? People's actions--even those of prophets--should be viewed within the context of their times. They shouldn't automatically be viewed as being unequivocally moral in today's day and age.Point taken. In regarding each individual's interpretation and belief in Islam, if an individual who chooses to live by Muhammad the Prophet's direct example of marrying a minor, they can argue then that they have the justification to do so by following Muhammad the Prophet. However, if following a more secular example, more Muslims would choose to condemn the practice depending on their individual beliefs that marrying a minor is "haram". It supposedly could go both ways... although it is unfortunate that such a practice can still be defended within the religion.
