All historians and Islamic scholars agree that Asma the sister of Ayisha was 10 years older than Ayisha - All historians agree that Asma died 73 AH (693 AD) of 98 of age - therefore Aisha was in 73 AH 88 of Age if she lived that far (actually she died in 58 AH) - therefore Ayisha age when the Prophet migrated to Madina 88-73 = 15 years of age - the prophet proposed two years before migration - when she was 13 years old - and he married her one year after migration that is when she was 16 years of Age
