Al-Ahnaf Ibn Qays said:

وقال الاحنف بن قيس : سمعت خطبة أبي بكر ، وعمر ، وعثمان ، وعلي ، والخلفاء بعدهم ، فما سمعت الكلام من فم مخلوق أفخم ، ولا أحسن منه من فم عائشة

I have heard the speeches of Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman, ‘Ali (رضي الله عنهم) and the khulafa who came after them, but I never heard any speech more eloquent and beautiful than that of ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها).

[Kitab an Nubala]

Moosa ibn Talha said:

حدثنا القاسم بن دينار الكوفي حدثنا معاوية بن عمرو عن زائدة عن عبد الملك بن عمير عن موسى بن طلحة قال ما رأيت أحدا أفصح من عائشة قال أبو عيسى هذا حديث حسن صحيح غريب

I never saw anyone more eloquent and pure in speech than ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها).

[Tirmidhi]
