Aisha: The Truth is Revealed
Has the Prophet (PBUH) ever mentioned Aisha as of the Greatest Women of the World? What do our Narrations tell us, here we will point to nothing but the narrations of our Sunni brother’s and sister’swhich where they themselves accept these narrations as Authentic!
Aisha the greatest/excellent of Women?
So is Aisha of the most excellent of the women in paradise? Just because the Quran gives you the title of Om al-Momineen, this does not protect you from anything, or gives you a special status. Wasn’t thewives of Prophet Noah (as) and of Prophet Lut (as) as well called Om Al-Momineen? Weren’t they alsocursed in the Holy Quran? Nevertheless, this is not our topic at hand. Our first question will be answerdwith these two narrations here:Imam Ahmed records:
Anas narrated that the prophet (s) said: "The most excellent of the women of all worlds are: Mary the daughter of Imran, Khadija the daughter of Khuwaylid, Fatimah the daughter of Muhammad,and Asiya the wife of Pharaoh"
Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal, Volume 3 page 135 Hadith 12414Shaykh Shoib al-Arnaut stated:
‘Sahih on the conditions of two Shaykhs’
We also read:
Ibn Abbas narrates that Rasulullah (s) made four lines on the earth, then He (s) said to his companions, ‘Do you know what is this?’ They replied: ‘Allah and his messenger know best’. He (s) replied: ‘The most excellent of the women of Paradise are Khadija the daughter of Khuwaylid,Fatimah the daughter of Muhammad, Asiya the wife of Pharaoh, and Mary the daughter of Imran’
Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal, Volume 1 page 293 Hadith 2668Shaykh Shoib al-Arnaut stated:
‘The Chain is Sahih, the narrators are reliable (Thuqat), narrators of Sahih (books)’
So never has the Prophet (PBUH) in any way shape or form every has mentioned Aisha as of the greatestof women.
Ayesha's jealousy of Khadija (as) is clear proof that she was not the most beloved wife
In Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5 Tradition 166, Ayesha herself narrates:
