friends of the Prophet, Abu Bakr
She said that there were nine blessing of Allah which distinguished her from all other women in the world except Maryam bint ‘Imran, the mother of ‘Isa
1⃣The Angel Jibril had presented her portrait wraped in green silk to Muhammadﷺ and told him that this was the picture of the lady chosen by Allah & to be his consort both in this world and the next.

6⃣She was the daughter of the loyal and true friend of the Prophet, Abu Bakr Siddique
7⃣ Ayat acquitting her of any wrongdoing had descended from the heavens from Allah proving her innocence.

environment, and spent her formative years with the purest and best of creatures, the Prophetﷺ.
Allah, the Lord, the Sustainer of the Universe promised her Divine Forgiveness and abundant bounties.

Joining the household of the prophet🤍
Aisha had a memory like a computer, which never seemed to fail her. She hardly ever forgot something once she heard it.
At the time of Hijrah, (migration) of the Prophet to Al-Madinah, she was barely eight years old, yet she remembered years later even minor details about that historic and momentous move.
She was barely nine years of age when she joined the household of the Prophet.
🪄She did not find herself in a royal mansion. A number of small rooms were constructed around the Prophet’s Mosque, and she occupied one of these, located on the eastern side of the Mosque.
Her room was about six feet wide, had earthen walls and the roof was of leaves and twigs. To prevent the rain water from seeping in the roof was covered with a blanket. The roof was so low that a person standing upright could touch the roof.
There were none of the signs of worldly wealth and pomp, but this little room was filled with spiritual treasures.
On the day that Muhammad passed away, there was not even food for a single day in his household.
🪄No beggar left her door empty-handed.She was very large-hearted and benevolent.
1⃣She would collect a sizable amount gradually and then give it away in charity.
2⃣She would even fall into debt to help someone in need. When asked why she took on debts unhesitatingly, she replied that if a person had every intention of repaying the debt, Allah would help him or her.
3⃣On one occasion, at one sitting, ‘Aishah gave away 70,000 Dirhams in charity for Allah and got up showing her empty handkerchief to the people seated there.
4⃣ One evening she received Dirhams 1,00,000 from Amir Mu’awiyah who was in Syria…
