”The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their (believers’) mothers (as regards respect and marriage).”[Al-Ahzaab: 6]
By The Favours of Allaah, we present this book: A book comprising of the excellences of this great woman, And her merits; as in the Sacred texts of the Qur’an and the Authentic Sunnah, And her virtues; as witnessed by the noble companions, And the affirmation of her lofty status; as through the narrations of the Imaams of Islaam.
Aaishah (radhiyallaahu anhaa) is our mother and the beloved of our beloved (S). We felt the need to compile her merits, to make clear to the Muslims her weight in excellence, and to shed light on the life of piety that she led. Thus, we seek to emphasize that indeed, she will always remain on a high and lofty degree. Regardless of the claims of the disbelievers, heretics and hypocrites, the true believer in Allaah and His Messenger (Sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) knows the futility and senselessness of their arguments. Indeed the true believer loves, honors and defends those whom Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam) loved. This is our creed and stance and it will remain so until Allaah inherits the earth and all those therein.

Excerpts From The Book:
From Hishaam that his father [Urwa- the scholar & nephew of 'Aisha] said:” Indeed I have accompanied Aaishah (radhiyallaahu anhaa), and I have never seen anyone, ever, who is more knowledgeable of any verse, or of the inheritance laws, or of the Sunnah, or poetry, or of the Arab history, or lineages, or of the judgments, or medicine…’ page: 47
And Imaam ash-Sha’bee used to mention her, and be amazed by her understanding of the religion and her knowledge. Then he would say: ”But [after all] what do you think about the Prophetic nurturing !?”[Meaning don't be amazed by her knowledge and excellence. Indeed she was nurtured and cultivated by the best of all the people, the Imaam of Imaams, the scholar of all scholars, and it is the Prophet Sallallaahu Alayhi wasallam] page: 49
