Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64 Narrated ‘Aisha:
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old,and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65 Narrated ‘Aisha:
