Many accusations have been leveled against our beloved Prophet (PBUH). One of the most prominent is the claim he married a child. It has been claimed his wife Aisha (RA) was six. Some say nine. Based upon historical facts and simple arithmetic we can conclude with certainty that this claim is absolutely false and any Hadith which says otherwise is a fabrication (Maudu`). Asama, the sister of Aisha, was 10 years older than Aisha and died in 73 A.H.
