Some beautiful but very beneficial narrations of Ṣaḥābiyyāt :رضي الله عنهن

On the authority of Ibrāhīm رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “Once ‘A’ishaħ passed by a tree and she said, ‘I wish I was a leaf of this tree.’” [Kitāb az-Zuhd 345/1]

Commentary:

She said this out her fear of being questioned by Allāhسبحانه و تعالى

On the authority of ‘Urwaħرحمه الله تعالى who said, “‘Ā’ishaħ said, ‘Woe to me! I wish I had been forgotten and out of sight!’”[Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1501]

On the authority of ‘Urwaħ رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “I have not seen anyone from the people who was more knowledgeable of the Qur’ān or of its obligations or of its allowed (matters) or of its prohibited (matters) or of poetry or with stories of the Arabs or (understanding of) lineage than ‘Ā’ishaħ.” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1520]

On the authority of az-Zuhrī رحمه الله تعالى (teacher of al-Imām Mālik رحمه الله تعالى) who said, “Indeed Fāṭimaħ, daughter of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم grinded until her hands were blistered and perhaps the pole of the millstone left a mark on her hand.” .” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1484]

On the authority of Anas bin Mālik رضي الله عنهwho said, “The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم said, ‘What is best for the women?’ And we did not know what to say. Thereupon ‘Alī went to Fāṭimaħ and told her that (i.e. what was asked) So, she said, ‘Why didn’t you inform him that the best for them is that they do not see the men nor they see them.’ Then he returned and informed that to him (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم). So, he صلى الله عليه و سلم said to him, ‘Who taught you this?’ He said, ‘Fāṭimaħ’ At which he said, ‘She is from my flesh.’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1481 – muttaṣil, the men in the isnād are trustworthy]

On the authority of ‘Amr ibn Dīnār رحمه الله تعالىwho said, “‘Ā’ishaħ رضي الله عنها said, ‘I have never seen anyone more truthful than Fāṭimaħ other than her father.’ And if something happened between them (i.e. Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم and Ā’ishaħ رضي الله عنها), she would say, ‘O’ Messenger of Allāh, ask her for she does not lie.’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1486 – muttaṣil, the men in the isnād are trustworthy]

On the authority of Anas bin Mālik رضي الله عنه who said, “Ṣafiyyaħ learned that Ḥafṣaħ said regarding her, ‘Verily, you are a daughter of a Jew!’ so she wept. The Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلمentered upon her and she was weeping so he said, ‘What happened?!’ She said, ‘Ḥafṣaħ said regarding me, ‘Verily, you are a daughter of a Jew!’’ So, the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه و سلم said to her, ‘You are a daughter of a prophet, your uncle was a prophet and you are (married) with a prophet. So for what was she boasting over you?’ Then he said, ‘Have taqwa of Allāh O’ Ḥafṣaħ’” [Ḥilyat ul-Awliyā’/1535 – Ḥasan]

Commentary:

‘You are a daughter of a prophet…’ refers to Mūsa عليه السلام since he was the Prophet sent to Banī Isrā’īl and Jews are his followers

‘..your uncle was a prophet…’ refers to Hārūn
