Omer Siddique (translation)
Paperback, 154 pages
Sayidah A'isha had an unparalleled personality through which she occupied a special place in the heart of the Messenger of Allahﷺ and in his life. It was as if he had prepared her to be one of the preservers of his knowledge. Over two thousand hadiths have been narrated by her from the Prophetﷺ. But that is not all, for she was also accomplished in many sciences and in giving legal judgements (ijtihad). Abu Musa Al-Ashari said about her, "Never did a hadith become difficult upon the Companions of the Messenger to understand, except we would ask A'isha and find knowledge of it with her."
