No, that is simply not true. What is the motive for this stream of unreasoning hatred?
If this does not generate excessive controversy, I will quote other original sources that describe several actions of someone unworthy of spiritual worship.
If you know anything about the tradition you should know that Muhammad is not worshiped in Islam nor is he a Messiah This would be idolatry and the gravest sin in Islam.
This claim has been hashed over and rejected for much more than a thousand years.
According to the generally accepted tradition, Aisha was born about eight years before Hijrah. But according to another narrative in Bukhari (kitabu'l-tafseer) she is reported to have said that at the time Surah Al-Qamar, the 54th chapter of the Qur'an, was revealed, "I was a young girl". The 54th surah of the Qur'an was revealed or proclaimed nine years before Hijrah. According to this tradition, she had not only been born before the revelation of the referred surah, but was actually a young girl (jariyah), not an infant (sibyah) at that time. This contradicts with the narratives reported by Hisham ibn `urwah, who is the main source of the claim. Aisha’s age at the time of her marriage is held to be nine years only by Hisham ibn `urwah. Given the critical comments in the tradition on the narratives of Hisham ibn `urwah, there is no compelling reasons why should accept his claims as more accurate that the widely accepted Islamic historians.
According to a number of narratives, she was present in the battle of Badr and Uhud. It is also reported in accepted hadith and accepted histories that no one under the age of 15 years was allowed to take part in the battle of Uhud. She then would have had to be 15 or more to be present.
According to almost all the historians Asma, her elder sister, was ten years older. It is reported in Taqri'bu'l-tehzi'b as well as Al-bidayah wa'l-nihayah that Asma died in 73 hijrah when she was 100 years old. Now, obviously if she was 100 years old in 73 hijrah she should have been 27 or 28 years old at the time of hijrah. If Asma was 27 or 28 years old at the time of hijrah, Aisha would have been 17 or 18 years old at that time. Thus, Aisha, if she got married in 1 AH (after hijrah) or 2 AH, was between 18 to 20 years old at the time of her marriage.
There is much, much more that is widely known and easily found. Again, what is the purpose of this stream of distortion and bile? What connection to Theravada is being explored?
