Is it true that Ibn Saad in Tabakat wrote that Aisha was 9 years old at the time of the engagement, and 12 years old at the time of consummation?

Similar things are written about Ibn Hillikan.

    And is ibn Sa'ad more reliable than al-Bukhari, Muslim or any hadith scholar?

  • This is not the point. I wanted to know if this is true, because this is interesting information. Do you know the answer to this question?

  • Hear you say "are written about" and in a comment you say "in one scientific book". The question might get better responses if it gave explicit references to what these vague expressions refer to, and actual quotations from them. Nov 10 '21 at 13:14

No, there is no such statement.

There is agreement of all classical scholars that our mother Sayyidah Áāyishah, may Allāh be pleased with her, was 6/7 lunar years at the time of nikāh and 9 lunar years at the time of consummation.

  • Are you sure about this? I met this information in one scientific book.
