Rasulullah Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s Love for His Wife…

And what was the opinion of Nabi Salallahu alaihi wasallam concerning his beloved wife, Hadhrat Ayesha Radiallahu anha? Rasulullah Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said that “The superiority of `Aisha to other ladies is like the superiority of Tharid (i.e. a meat and bread dish) to other meals.”

Once Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wasallam said to her: “You were shown to me in a dream. An angel brought you to me, wrapped in a piece of silken cloth, and said to me, ‘This is your wife.’ I removed the piece of cloth from your face, and there you were.” I said to myself. ‘If it is from Allah, then it will surely be.’ Thus Allah Ta’ala chose Hadhrat Ayesha Radiallahu anha to be the wife of his beloved Nabi Salallahu alaihi wasallam.

When the mother of believers, Ummu Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her), asked the Prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to order people to give him the gifts wherever he is rather than only when he is with Aisha, he said: “Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha.”

His daughter Fatima (may Allah be pleased with her) asked him the same and he replied: “O my daughter! Don’t you love whom I love?” She replied in the affirmative.

The messenger of Allah Ta’ala loved her more than anyone else so much so that he declared in front of his companions when Amru Ibn Al ‘Aas asked him: ‘Who is the most beloved person to you?” He said, ” `Aisha’ (Radiallahu anha)”.
