The mother and sister of Imam Bukhari

The mother and sister of Imam Bukhari

 

There is no one who can equal Imam Bukhari when it comes to the knowledge of Hadith. He was fourteen years old when he began travelling in order to seek knowledge. His mother and sister undertook the responsibility of paying for all his studies, travels and other expenses.

Lesson: A mother sometimes pays for her child’s expenses. But as for a sister who has no responsibility whatsoever in this regard, why should she pay? From this we can deduce that when the women of that time merely heard about Deeni knowledge, they were prepared to sacrifice their wealth and possessions. O women! You should also be like this.
