I am aware of this Hadith, however you should look into the chain of narrator and who related such hadith. Hisham bin orwa related this hadith from his father who was an old man who forget and confuse what is right and wrong, most Islamic scholars dismiss this hadith as week. there is another study that shows 'Aysha was around 15 or 16 of age when she got married, I do not remember the link now, but seems you are god at finding Islamic websites, I am sure you can find that link that refute this hadith and give you by logic that Aysha age was around 15 or 16, the trick is her sister Asma was 10 years older than her. - i did not quite know what is the link of verses 65:1-4 - it has nothing to do with early marriage - Good luck
