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).

Imam Az Zuhri said:

If the knowledge of ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها) were to be gathered up and compared with knowledge of all the other wives of the Prophet and all other women, ‘Aishah’s (رضي الله عنها) knowledge would be greater.

[Al-Istee’ab, 4/1883]

‘Urwah Ibn Zubair said:

I have never seen anybody more knowledgeable in fiqh or medicine or poetry than ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها).

Superiority of ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها)

 فضل عائشة على النساء كفضل الثريد على سائر الطعام

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها)  has superiority over all other women in the same way as Thareed has superiority over all other foods.

Trait most hated by companions (رضي الله عنهم)

leave a comment »

‘Aisha (رضي الله عنها) said:

“There was not a trait most reprehensible in the sight of Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) companions  (رضي الله عنهم) more than lying. Whenever the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah found any of his companions  (رضي الله عنهم) lying, that impression would not depart from his heart until he was vividly shown that the companion had sincerely turned to Allah in repentance.

[Muslim in his introdution to his sahih]

‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) said:

The dearest of you as long as you have not met us are the best in names. But after we had seen you, the best of you to us are the best of you in character. When we scrutinise you, the dearest of you to us are the most truthful of you in speech.

[Ibn Abi Dunya]

‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) said:

I am informing you of what I heard from Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم). To fall down from the sky is dearer to me than to invent lie against him.

[Bukhari and Muslim]

“Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day…”

Ibn Marduwyah recorded that `Ata’ said, “I, Ibn `Umar (رضي الله عنه) and `Ubayd bin `Umayr went to `A’ishah (رضي الله عنها) and entered her room, and there was a screen between us and her. She said, `O `Ubayd! What prevents you from visiting us’ He said, `What the poet said, `Visit every once in a while, and you will be loved more.’ Ibn `Umar said, `Tell us about the most unusual thing you witnessed from the Messenger of Allah .’ She cried and said, `All his matters were amazing. On night, he came close to me until his skin touched my skin and said, `Let me worship my Lord.’ I said, `By Allah I love your being close to me. I also love that you worship your Lord.’ He used the water-skin and performed ablution, but did not use too much water. He then stood up in prayer and cried until his beard became wet. He prostrated and cried until he made the ground wet. He then laid down on his side and cried. When Bilal came to alert the Prophet for the Dawn prayer, he said, `O Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah! What makes you cry, while Allah has forgiven you your previous and latter sins’ He said,

«وَيْحَكَ يَا بِلَالُ، وَمَا يَمْنَعُنِي أَنْ أَبْكِيَ، وَقَدْ أُنْزِلَ عَلَيَّ فِي هذِهِ اللَّيْلَة»

(O Bilal  (رضي الله عنه) ! What prevents me from crying, when this night, this Ayah was revealed to me,)

﴿إِنَّ فِى خَلْقِ السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضِ وَاخْتِلَـفِ الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لاّيَـتٍ لاٌّوْلِى الاٌّلْبَـبِ ﴾

(Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding.)

«وَيْلٌ لِمَنْ قَرَأَهَا وَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرْ فِيهَا»

(Woe to he who recites it but does not contemplate it.).”

حدثنا أبو بكر الطلحي ، ثنا إسماعيل بن محمد المزني ، ثنا أبو نعيم ، ثنا زكريا بن أبي زائدة ، قال : سمعت عامرا الشعبي يقول : حدثني أبو سلمة أنعائشة حدثته أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لها : ” إن جبريل يقرئك السلام ” قالت : وعليه السلام ورحمة الله

Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said to her (‘Aisha  (رضي الله عنها)), “Verily Jibreel  (عليه السلام) sends greetings of peace to you” She said, “Wa ‘alayhis salam warahmatullah”
