I think you have to fold this. The board is just too coordinated to call off half your stack with overpair and less than nut flush draw. This is doubly so given the shove is from the BB on this board. He's as likely on one pair with Ah, and is trying to protect his pair against a bigger ace, as he is to already have two pair or a flush, but his preflop call speaks to the former.

In a cash game, this is an easy laydown. In a tournament, the decision is not as easy, but I think the laydown is still correct even then, given stack sizes.
