Salam,

Has the age of Aisha been reported within Zaydi sources? If so, are these sources completely reliable?

Salaams.

Regarding A'isha's age, Zaydi sources range from six to nine. [Ref. Al-Bahr az-Zakhkhaar and Al-Amaali al-Ithnayniyya]] None of our imams or scholars has doubted the authenticity of these reports. Allama Majid-deen al-Mu'ayyadi (ra) inclines more to the view that she was nine.

And Allah knows best!

Wa salam,

Sunni sources (Bukhari and Muslim) say that the marriage contract was written at six, and the marriage was consummated at nine. Do the Zaydi sources also say the marriage was consummated at nine or just that the marriage contract was written up?

Could you also confirm on whose authority these reports have been narrated on (i.e. do they go back to the Ahl al-Kisa or Aisha)?

Salaams!

Thanks for your question! Most of the references to A'isha's age are narrated on her authority. I can't recall all of the chains in Zaydi sources and whether any of the Ahl al-Kisa narrated it. Zaydi sources differ as to whether the marriage was contracted at nine or consummated.

And Allah knows best!

If the marriage was simply contracted (and not consummated) when Aisha was at the age of nine, as some Zaydi sources say, would this mean that the marriage was consummated three years later when she was 12 or would the date of consummation simply remain unknown?

Thank you for your question! Consummating the marriage three years after marriage is not something that is seen as necessary unless the consummation of such marriage would be a harm to the wife. By that, we mean that there is no rule that says that the marriage at the age of nine is consummated at twelve. That withstanding, we don't have any narrations that says that the marriage was consummated at twelve.

And Allah knows best!
