    And is ibn Sa'ad more reliable than al-Bukhari, Muslim or any hadith scholar? – Medi1Saif Jun 13 at 12:44
  • 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? – ggk hj Jun 13 at 12:54

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. – ggk hj Jun 13 at 7:43
  • Yes, there is no such opinion among classical sources. – Ibn e Khan Jun 13 at 12:55
  • Ok, ok, thanks! – ggk hj Jun 13 at 13:10
