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.
ADNAN OKTAR: 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. (Adnan Oktar's live interview on HarunYahya.TV (11 August 2010))
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."
"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."
ADNAN OKTAR: The cleanliness, purity and blessed nature of our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) are praised in the Qur’an. And that is that. Do not say anything to me after that. Or I will refuse to listen and will answer you harshly. Let me tell you. My criterion is the Qur’an. Since she is praised in the Qur’an, that is the end of it. I have no interest in this person hearing something from there or that person from someone else. Anyone can say what they like, insha’Allah. If she is praised in the Qur’an, that is that. Why should I believe anyone else? Look, Almighty Allah says, “Why, when you heard it, did you not, as men and women of the believers, instinctively think good thoughts and say, ‘This is obviously a lie’? .” This is a full clarification of the immaculate nature of our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra). It shows her whole life was immaculate and any statements against her can thus be seen to have no truth to them. They can all be seen to be false. Let me also explicitly set that out. Our other blessed mothers, our mothers who related hadiths, these are blessed people...(12 September 2010 Kanal Avrupa)
Our Mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) says…
Young people from the time of the devout Muslims who had spoken with the Prophet Muhammad’s (saas) Companions and learned from them, came to our mother Hazrat Aisha (ra) and asked her about the moral values of Rasulullah (saas). She said: "His moral values were those of the Qur’an. He approved of that which the Holy Qur’an approves of. And he disapproved of and avoided what the Qur’an disapproves of.”
"When Rasulullah (saas) had to choose between two things, he would take the easier, so long as it was not sinful. But when it was sinful, he avoided it more than anyone else. Rasulullah (saas) never sought revenge for his own personal desire."
