Mother of all Muslims / Believers:
Aisha Siddiqua (ra),
one of the most super-Muslim
woman; among all mankind:
Hazrat Aisha (ra) was the wife of our beloved Prophet Muhammad
(saas) and the daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra), the first caliph of Islam.
As the wife of our Prophet (saas), Hazrat Aisha (ra) is known as "ummul-
muminun," meaning “the mother of the believers” and as the daughter of
Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra), she is known by the title of "as-Siddiqa" meaning
“the devoted”. She was born in Mecca in 614. With her superior qualities,
such as intelligence, her powerful faith, wise speech and profound
understanding of the Qur’an and our Prophet (saas), all bestowed on her
by Allah, she is an exemplary Muslim for all believers.
Our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) was beautiful and highly intelligent. She was
very courageous, as was our mother Hazrat Hafsa ( ra). They were the
most splendid people. Many hadiths and other accounts have come down
to us through them. They are our mothers and had a perfect
understanding of Islam. Our Prophet (saas) loved them, and they loved
our Prophet (saas). Both are manifestations of Allah. May Allah lavish
goodness upon them. Masha’Allah.
The Moral Values of Hazrat Aisha (ra)
Hazrat Aisha (ra) was educated in early childhood by her father, Hazrat
Abu Bakr (ra), the first caliph of Islam. Her marriage to our Prophet
(saas) led to further moral and intellectual growth, maturity and depth.
Our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) became a Muslim at an early age, and with
her modesty, determination, generosity and a character devoid of
arrogance and refusal to speak badly of anyone she was a wise role
model for all Muslims. Because of her sincere faith and purity, she was
able to act in line with Allah’s approval, that which is really essential.
Hadiths Addressed to our Mother Hazrat Aisha (ra)
Some of the hadiths addressed to our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) and
quoted in the Ramuz al-Ahadith read as follows:
"O Aisha, Allah is He Who treats His servants with blessings. He loves
gentle behavior in all matters."
Mother of all Muslims: Aisha Siddiqua (ra), one of the most super-Muslim
woman; among all mankind:
"O Aisha, gentleness and patience beautify and adorn wherever they are
found and reduce the beauty of whatever they are lifted from."
"O Aisha, backbiting is relating a Muslim’s defect behind his back. But if the
flaw in question does not exist in him, then you have slandered our Muslim
brother. And slander is a worse sin than backbiting."
Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) used to lead the prayers for the
women in the holy month of Ramadhan and would stand in between them.
Taken from:Muhammad al-Shaybani, Kitab al-Athaar, (p.44) Chapter on
Nowhere have women from any faith, country, and socioeconomic and
racial background consistently made such a mark on history as Muslim
women have in the time of the Prophet pbuh.
Large segments of the Qur’an were revealed with reference to Islamic women.
“Dying became easier for me when I was
Ayesha in paradise.
It was as if I could see her hands.”
