Age Of Aishah (rta) At The Time Of Her Marraige

Question

I was listening to an audio lecture by Mr Ghamidi. In the question/answer session someone asked Mr Ghamidi about the age of Sayyida Aisha's at the time of her marriagewith the Prophet (sws). In his response Mr Ghamidi stated that there is a style in the Arabiclanguage according to which when she said 6 or 9 years, the 10 was already implied init. He mentioned that there are some narratives in which the dates oflaylatulqadr are mentioned and similarly, only 6, 7 or 9th day is mentioned eventhough the dates are 25, 27 etc. The 20 was implied.

I was wondering if it would be possible to get references of thosenarratives of laylatalqadr that be mentioned


Answer

Following is a version of one of such narratives followed by its translation.

عن عُبَادَةَ بن الصَّامِتِ قال خَرَجَ النبي لِيُخْبِرَنَا بِلَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ فَتَلَاحَى رَجُلَانِ من الْمُسْلِمِينَ فقال خَرَجْتُ لِأُخْبِرَكُمْ بِلَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ فَتَلَاحَى فُلَانٌ وَفُلَانٌ فَرُفِعَتْ وَعَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ خَيْرًا لَكُمْ فَالْتَمِسُوهَا في التَّاسِعَةِ وَالسَّابِعَةِ وَالْخَامِسَةِ

Narrated 'Ubada bin Assamit: Allah's Apostle went out to inform the people about the date of the Night of decree there happened a quarrel between two Muslim men. The Prophet said, "I came out to inform you about the Night of Al−Qadr, but as so−and−so and so−and−so quarreled, so the news about it had been taken away; and maybe it was better for you. So look for it in the ninth, the seventh, or the fifth (of the last ten days of Ramadan).

Bukhari: Chapter on that the information about the exact date of the laylatal-qadar was held due to a quarrel.
