09 – Saintly Women (Part 8) – Lady Aisha: Most Knowledgable of all Women – Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan

In this episode, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan begins speaking about the life of Sayyida Aisha (may God be pleased with her). He begins by speaking about the tremendous knowledge and wisdom she possessed. She came from an amazing home, the home of Abu Bakr as-Siddiq where she witnessed Islam from an early age. Shaykh Abdurragman reminds the believers to name one’s child with a good and righteous name. He goes on to explain how the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) expressed love for Aisha. He highlights how his love for Aisha was unique and distinct from any of his other wives. Shaykh Abdurragmaan gives a glimpse of the care and concern the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had for Aisha.

This episode is part of the series Saintly Women, with Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan. In a time when women’s rights are in question, this series provides clear Prophetic guidance on the dignified and critical role of women from the Islamic perspective through the role model of five saintly women. Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the lives and lessons of Sayyida Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Sayyida Fatima al-Zahra, Sayyida Asiya, Sayyida Maryam bint Imran, and Sayyida bint Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (may Allah be please with them all).

The lives and lessons of these five saintly women will be covered due to their high virtue and status given in the Qur’an and sunna. The series will extract lessons of guidance from their lives so that Muslim women can take them as role models. It is important for both men and women to know about these saintly women, to follow their virtuous character, and to teach the generations to come how to follow them as role models, especially the girls and young ladies.
