When Mohammad made up his religion he placed himself at the center of it with the other prophets just being forrunners, like a warm up band. In the Quran Allah is always rushing to fullfill Mohammad's every desire. He never did that for any of the other prophets. Even Mohammad's wives commented on that. At one time one of Mohamad's wives caught him having relations with a slave and he promised her that he would not do it again. When she caught him again he told her that Allah had given him a revelation to " not hold forbidden what Allah has made lawful for thee". This is recorded in Sura 66. Mohammad's life is full of these timely and helpful revelations. So one must conclude that either Allah rushes to do everything he can for Mohammad or else Mohammad was just making the whole thing up.

e.g. five years old child ( Aisha ) as wife? It is difficult to believe Allah support child molesters.

six year old but actually that wasn't his most controversial wife pick. He took his adopted son's wife as his own. In Arabian culture an adopted son was considered even more of a son than son by birth. One could disown a son by birth but one could not disown an adopted son. When he took his son's wife as his own it would have caused great controversy... except a revelation came saying it ws OK.

Anyway Muhammad as owner of thirty one wife many of them was children would be today sentenced to lifetime or even to death penalty.

Why Did Mohammed Have So Many Wives

Yep. Unfortunately he is considered a "beautiful example to be emulated in every way" to the Muslim faithful. That's why recent attempts to ban child marriages in Yemen were violently opposed (and successfully so) by Muslim Imams there.
