The entry about Asma, the older sister of Aishah, in the
appendix to the Hadith book Mishkat al-Masabih. This was
first written about 700 years ago.
The image below is reproduced from an Urdu translation of Mishkat
al-Masabih, published in Lahore, 1986, volume 3, pages 300–301.
It is stated above that Asma was ten years older
than Aishah, and died in 73 A.H. at the age of 100 years. Thus, at
the time of Aishah joining the Holy Prophet as his wife in 2 A.H.,
Asma was 29, and therefore Aishah was 19 years old.
