2. 3A'isha we are told that she was 18 years old when Muhammad died in 632CE.

I have same information.

Now she lived with him from age 9

So true. I have found this in book of Hadith.

(she married him at age 6)


and this would bring us back to 623CE which would make her not an authority on the Meccan period or the Hijra.

Right. Though she was a daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakar (Razi Allah Talahunho), who was among the very first of becoming Muslims. So she was born Muslim and in a home of First Khalifa.

And what does a 9 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 13 etc... year old really know or understand? Not much.

So much for the main sources of the hadith.

Dear Dhimmi, right but requires some clarification.

A 9 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 13 or 18 years girl may not know what was going on during the battle of Badar or Khyber but she would certainly know at which time Prophet Mohammad wake up in night. What he prays etc.
