"Muhammad is rich and respected. Khadijah died just at this time, and three weeks later Muhammad married Aisha (then 6 years of age) and another woman."

Henrik, a correction here.

Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) first wife Hazrat Khadijah al-Kubra (Razi Allah Talahunhoma) was 15 years elder than Prophet at the time of marriage. This could help many to understand the life of Porphet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), who can do justice and think.

After 2nd year of Hijra few years after the death of Khadijah (565-623), Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqah (Razi Allah Talahunhoma), left his father's (Abu Bakr (RZ)) home at the age of 9. She was in marriage contract at the age of 6.

My love to you.
