Your claim is bogus. Abul Qasim aka Muhammad did not even know the year of his birth and the 3am al-feel thing is because the 3Ulama in the 3rd century of Islam were making things up and what is more bizarre than using a Quranic allusion that no one seems to know what it means (Surat al-Feel) that is infused with strange and non Arabic words (eg: Ababeel and sijeel) even the name of the sura was not fixed for a long time and we find the likes of Tabari calling it surat: alam tara, and this opaque revelation was used as his date of birth. Now the task of the 3Ulama was to count backwards.

1. Abul Qasim died in 632CE minus 10 years of living in Medina this brings us to 622CE

2. Now the 3Ulama debated did Abul Qasim live for 10 years in Mecca or was it 11 or 12 or 13 years? They seem to have picked up 13 years Why 13? only Allahu A3lam and this brings us to 610CE or 611CE or 612CE or 613CE and only Allahu A3lam again.

3. Now we have the year that was selected by some of the 3Ulama and that is 610CE as the year when Abul Qasim started to receive his so called mab3ath or revelation.

4. Now the 3Ulama had to dig in the Qur'an to find an answer to the question: then how old was Abul Qasim in 610CE? Well the naswer was from the Quranic: "and I lived among you for a 3Umr" the word 3Umr was read as 40! Why? who knows.

5. Now we can count the age of Abul Qasim: 40+10-13+10 = 60-63 and only Allahu A3lam

Now do you see how bogus all of this counting is? and if we do not know how old Muhammad was when he died then why should we believe all this nonsense by tablighees like you about 3A'isha? and if so why should we believe that your count of 3Ai'sha's age is not bogus?

The truth is even if your count is correct then would you allow your even 20 year old daughter to marry a wannabe prophet who is a caravan raider and Arabian warlord and who has 22-23 wives and concubines? What do you think our dear Syed?
