Mu'aa-wiyah (may Allah be pleased with him) once said this in the khutbah:
"Messenger of Allah ﷺ passed away at the age of sixty three. (The Shaykhayn, i.e.) Abubakr (may Allah be pleased with him) and 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) also passed away at the age of sixty three years. My age (at the moment) is also sixty three".
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، عَنْ شُعْبَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ عَامِرِ بْنِ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ جَرِيرٍ، عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَهُ يَخْطُبُ، قَالَ‏:‏ مَاتَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَهُوَ ابْنُ ثَلاثٍ وَسِتِّينَ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ، وَأَنَا ابْنُ ثَلاثٍ وَسِتِّينَ سنة‏.‏
