5 different Al-Bukhari narrations about Aisha age when she got engaged, some of them when she was 6 years and that the Prophet entered on her when she was 9 years of age

These narrations were based on one of the series of iteration narrator (Hisham bin Orwah) and he was the first of a series of narrators that this story was taken from him. He was not trustworthy after becoming of old age and mixing things up and his story was not accepted by Malik (a great Leader, ideologist) in Islam among 4 others (Malik, Abu Hanifa, Shafi'I and Abu Hanbal)

Al Bukhari is not one of them, he is a great authentic Hadith (Prophet Sayings) collector, and classifier. This Hadith is labeled poor.

There are 4 great authentic Hadith collectors, Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Al-Nisa'I and Al-Tirmithi

The right story is as follows

The Prophet (After becoming a prophet) was in Makkah 13 year preaching before migrating to Madinah. Then he migrated to Madinah running away from his tribe persecutions. He was 53 years of age when he migrated, He stayed 10 years in Madinah before meeting His Lord (i.e. deceased).

It was narrated that Prophet Muhammad engaged to Aisha 2 years before migrating to Madinah. And married her 2 years after migration

Aisha was engaged to another person before Muhammad his name is Gubayr bin Udai.

After Aisha's father (a very close friend of Muhammad, his name is Abu Bakr) entered Islam and All his family, Gubayr did not enter Islam he was Infidel like the great Infidel on Earth, but she was engaged to him before Islam. His mother (Gubayr Mother) did not accept that Abu bakr and his entire family entered Islam, that means Aisha is a Muslim too so she broke the engagement.

Abu Bakr entered Islam the first instance Muhammad became a Great Prophet of God in Makkah that means 13 years before migration to Madina.

All Abu Bakr offspring were born before Islam. This means Aisha was born before Islam

After his (Muhammad) first wife was deceased he was 50 years of age and stayed with his first wife 25 years without marrying any woman. There was a lady called Khawla bint Hakeem she was (marriage arranger) she proposed to the Prophet to marry again and suggested to him Sawda bint Zam'a or Aisha. This means she suggested to him 2 or 3 years before Migration to Madinah.

According to another Hadith, God chose for him Aisha.

Aisha elder sister Asma was ten years older than Aisha and she lived until 100 years of age she was deceased in 73 (AH) after Migration to Madina, this means Asma was 27 years of age when she migrated with her family to Madinah and Aisha was 17 years of Age.

So if Aisha was 17 years of age when she migrated, that means the prophet proposed when she was 15 and married her when she was 19.

Then the engagement to Gubayr was when she was 4 years of age or earlier, may be when she was born. And this is normal in old times that a baby girl is engaged when she is just born but marriage is consumed after puberty is reached.

This concludes that Aisha was engaged to Our Great beloved Prophet Muhammad (God blessing and Peace be upon him) when she was 17 years of age and married when she was 19

HAPPY? make your own calculations and if you don't believe me then dig the internet for what I said to you
