Most Muslims, not all, do accept that Aisha was 6 at the time of the marriage and 9 when the marriage was consummated because of hadith, such as Sahih Bukari:

Sahih Bukhari 5:58:236
Narrated Hisham's father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.

Sahih Bukhari 7:62:64
Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

Sahih Bukhari 7:62:65
Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that 'Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death)." what you know of the Quran (by heart)'

Sahih Bukhari 7:62:88
Narrated 'Ursa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years oldand she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

This is why Islam is completely incompatible with Western Civilization. This is why we need a complete ban on Muslim immigration. From anywhere. Now.
