Muhammad is regarded by Muslims as a messenger and prophet of God. He is believed to be the last and most important messenger sent by god. It is through muhammad that muslims believe god has revealed the Qur'an to them and for this he is idolised. Muhammad was either sincere when he wrote the Qur'an and consequently was suffering from a mental illness such as schizophrenia, or he was deliberately deceiving his followers into believing the Qur'an was divine and that he was a messenger. Muhammad practised and was an advocate of polygamy for men. One of his marriages was to a 6 year old girl names Aisha and was consumated at the age of around 9. This relationship has given rise to many modern day controversies that insinuate Muhammad was in fact a paedophile.
