الجواب وبالله التوفيق

Hazrat Ayesha RaziAllah Ta‘ala Anhaswears in the name of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘ala(as a thanks to His blessings and not as pride) and states that:

“Some of the important and special distinctions have been given to me from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘ala which were exhibited only by Hazrat Mariam RaziAllah Ta‘ala Anhaand no other woman possessed them:  

  • Other than me none of the wives of Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam were maiden
  • Before my Nikah an angel took my picture to Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallamand informed that “this is your wife and from the order of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘ala you should perform Nikah with her”
  • I am the daughter of the person who was the most beloved to Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam
  • Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘ala revealed verses of Quran in my vindication
  • Other than me none of the wives of Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam saw Jibraeel Alyhissalam
  • Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam loved me the most amongst all his beloved wives
  • When Jibraeel Alyhissalam would bring wahi(revelation) from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta‘alaI used to be in Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam’s blanket, this did not happen with any other wives of Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam
  • Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam used to spend two days with me (i.e. one day for myself and one day that Hazrat Sawda RaziAllah Ta‘ala Anha gave to me due to her old age)
  • At the time of departing from this world, Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam’s head was in my lap
  • After departing from this world Rasulullah Sallallaho Alyhi Wasallam is resting in my room
