Anyway I already discussed the issue of Prophet Muhammad being a warrior Prophet of God like Prophets Moses, Joshua and David. As for the details of his life....let the Holy Qur'an be a final judge among the conflicting reports not the hadiths or history whom Allah never promised to be impossible to be corrupted by fallable human hands!!!

Again, it is just a question of hadiths/history reports passing in the standard of the Holy Qur'an - the only islamic source which is never been corrupted!!!

About the hadith reports of Aisha's age when she was married to Prophet Muhammad they are just a political propaganda and are just a result of Aisha's desperate move to portray herself as the most beloved and favorite wife of Prophet Muhammad because she want to bolster his status, credential and authority among his contemporaries just to prevent or block her mortal enemies of no other than Muammad's cousin Ali and his sons Hassan and Hussien from the caliphate! For your information, Aisha was very active in politic that time involve in plot and political propganda against the family of Prophet Muhamamd particularly fatima, Ali, Hassan and Husien. She even leading a revolt against Ali just to snatch the caliphate from him and had prevented Hassan to be buried besides his grandfather Prophet Muhammad!

As we all knew, even Bhukari and Muslim had recorded that that Aisha was so envious of the fact that the most favorite and beloved wife of Muhammad is his first wife of no other than Khadidja the mother of Fatima - Ali's wife and mother of his sons Hassan and Hussien. it is obvious that this intense feelings of envy and hatred on the part of the First Family of Prophet Muhammad had lead her to invent/fabricate hadiths directly or indirectly portraying herself as the most beloved and favorite wife just to counter the claim of Fatima, Ali and their sons to the Muslim leadership after the death of the Prophet Muhammad.

For Aisha the only way to bolster her case not only among the wives of the Prophet but to all sahabas is to allege that she was being married by Prophet Muhammad in a very young age. Her inclusion of the alleged "still playing a doll at the time she is married" is just a clear proof that she just badly want her to be regarde as the most beloved /favorite that even she is still a child the Prophet Married her!!!

No wonder these alleged hadith is just almost narrated by Aisha herself with some narrated by the famous urwa whom the rest of the hadith collectors branded him as liar or not reliable. Anyway the reports of aisha that she is just 9 yrs old when she became a wife is contradicted by other hadith/history reports that will say that aisha was married at least when she is 12-14yrs old up to 18-20 yrs old!!!
