In defense of Prophet’s beloved wife & our mother, Ayesha

She was also a distinguished scholar of Islam. Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “We the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) never had difficulty in understanding a Hadith except that when we asked Ayesha we found she had some knowledge about it.”Masruq said: “We swear by Allah, we have seen senior Companions of Allah’s Messenger asking Ayesha about inheritance laws.” (Ibn Al-Jawzi, Sifah Al-Safwah, vol. 1, p. 319)Her piety and deeds were no less exemplary, after all she was the wife of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Her nephew Urwah Bin Al-Zubayr said: “Ayesha (may Allah be pleased with her) gave 70,000 (Dirham) in charity, while her own skirt used to be patched.” (Abdullah Bin Mubarak in Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa’iq, vol. 1, p. 588, no.705)Read More
