“Many men reached perfection but none among the women reached perfection except Mary, the daughter of ‘Imran, and Asia, Pharaoh’s wife. And the superiority of ‘riAisyah over other women is as the superiority of Tharid (a dish prepared from meat and bread) over other foods.”
Al-Mulla ‘Ali Qari expounds on the hadith saying:
“It is obvious that she is superior to all women as the apparent text suggests, from the angle of encompassing excellences of knowledge and practice, referred to by assimilating them with tharid. He presented a simile with tharid for it is the most superior food of the Arabs. It consists of bread, meat, and gravy. It has no parallel among foodstuffs. Moreover, it encompasses nourishment, tastiness, strength, ease to swallow, little effort in chewing, and quick movement in the throat and gullet.”
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ likened her to it so that it be realised that she was given a beautiful appearance, excellent character, splendid communication, sweet speech, eloquent tone, magnificent disposition, strong opinion, and sound intelligence, together with being beloved to the husband and being suitable for marriage, having conversations with, finding comfort and solace in, and inclination towards, as well as other meanings and qualities combined in her.
Sufficient above all these qualities is that she learnt from the Messenger of Allah ﷺ which other women did not and narrated from him the like of which men did not narrate from him. And Allah knows the condition the best. Hafiz Abu al-Hajjaj al-Mizzi has gone to the extent of declaring, “Her merits and virtues are extremely plenty.”
– [Tahdhib al Kamal]
Based on the book ‘A Treasury of ‘Aisha’ by Sofia Rehman, the book aspires to dive into her insights and statements in the categories of Quranic exegesis (tafsir), Jurisprudence (fiqh), Theology (aqidah), Politics (siyasah) and Heart Softeners (al- raqa’iq) with commentary for the contemporary Muslim seeking spiritual and moral direction as they traverse through daily life and its challenges and possibilities.
‘Aisyah bint Abu Bakr been an inspiration and paragon for Muslims since the first generation of Believers. Hailed as a guiding light, a fount of wisdom and a purveyor of the Prophetic mission, ‘Aisyah’s words have illuminated Islamic thought in all its branches.
This season of Sessions is based on the book titled A Treasury of Aisha by Sofia Rehman.
