To Henrik: Few years and at the age of 9

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: I think we agree on this

We will be on the same page if your source says that only Nikkah (not marriage and leaving the home of her father) took place at the age of 6.

And marriage of Hazrat Ayesha took place at the age of 9 not within weeks after the Hazrat Khadija left the world.

May peace and blessing of Allah on their souls.
