The entry about Asma, the older sister of Aisha, 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 Aisha, and died in 73 A.H. at the age of 100 years. Thus, at
the time of Aisha joining the Holy Prophet as his wife in 2 A.H.,
Asma was 29, and hence Aisha was 19 years old.
