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).

The best fragrance

leave a comment »

Anas b. Malik رضي الله عنه reported that Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم  got up he said:” Umm Sulaim (رضي الله عنها), what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume” 

(Muslim Book 30, No. 5761)

‘Amr Ibn Al-‘Aas   رضي الله عنه  said, “There wasn’t anyone more beloved to me than the messenger of Allah –  صلى الله عليه وسلم – and more glorious in my eyes than he. I wouldn’t allow my eyes to stare at him so that to honor him, and if you were to ask me to describe him, I couldn’t…”

Imitating the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم

‘A’ishah رضي الله عنها said: “I never saw anyone holding tighter to the original affair than Ibn ‘Umar. رضي الله عنه”

[ أن ] عبيد بن جريج قال لعبد بن عمر رضي الله عنهما : رأيتك تصنع أربعا لم أر أحدا من أصحابك يصنعها ، قال : ما هي يا ابن جريج ؟ قال : رأيتك لا تمس من الأركان إلا اليمانيين ، ورأيتك تلبس النعال السبتية ، ورأيتك تصبغ بالصفرة ، ورأيتك إذا كنت بمكة ، أهل الناس إذا رأوا الهلال ، ولم تهل أنت حتى كان يوم التروية . فقال له عبد الله بن عمر : أما الأركان : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يمس إلا اليمانيين ، وأما النعال السبتية : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يلبس النعال التي ليس فيها شعر ويتوضأ فيها ، فأنا أحب أن ألبسها ، وأما الصفرة : فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يصبغ بها ، فأنا أحب أن أصبغ بها ، وأما الإهلال : فإني لم أر رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يهل حتى تنبعث به راحلته

‘Ubaid bin Juraij said to ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar رضي الله عنه , “I see you doing four things which are not done by your friends (companions).” Ibn ‘Umar said, “What are they, O Ibn Juraij?” He said, “I see that you do not touch except the two Yemenite corners of the Ka’ba (while performing the Tawaf): and I see you wearing the Sabtiyya shoes; and I see you dyeing (your hair) with Sufra; and I see that when you are in Mecca, the people assume the state of Ihram on seeing the crescent (on the first day of Dhul-Hijja) while you do not assume the state of Ihram till the Day of Tarwiya (8th Dhul Hijja).” ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said to him, “As for the corners of the Ka’ba, I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم touching except the two Yemenite corners, As for the Sabtiyya shoes, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم wearing leather shoes that had no hair, and he used to perform the ablution while wearing them. Therefore, I like to wear such shoes. As regards dyeing with Sufra, I saw Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم dyeing his hair with it, so I like to dye (my hair) with it. As regards the crescent (of Dhul-Hijja), I have not seen Allah’s Apostle  صلى الله عليه وسلم assuming the state of Ihram till his she-camel set out (on the 8th of Dhul-Hijja).”

وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَن يُقْتَلُ فِى سَبيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِن لاَّ تَشْعُرُونَ

And say not of those who are killed in the way of Allah, “They are dead.” Nay, they are living, but you perceive (it) not.

[Surah Baqarah V154]

This verse was revealed regarding sahaba  رضي الله عنهم martyred at Battle of Badr.
