This book portrays one of the most significant personalities in the history of Islam. Taking the misunderstandings and defamation about her into consideration, Aisha needs to be understood correctly.

This study by Dr. Resit Haylamaz, an expert on the life of the Prophet and his leading Companions, reflects her life in various aspects based on reliable reports. The book clarifies her critical role in establishing Islamic teaching, with particular reference to her role in the transmission of private matters concerning women and marital relations, as well as recording the authentic sayings of the Prophet. As her sensitivity to practicing religion is related in a rich variety of examples, much-disputed issues like her marriage age and her stance about Ali ibn Abu Talib are covered as separate topics.


Aisha: The Wife, the Companion, the Scholar

Aisha represented the vitality of revelation during the half-century after the death of God’s Messenger and did not deprive her students of the light of Prophethood. Like a meeting point for travelers from different directions, her place was by the Four Rightful Caliphs. When possible controversies arose, Aisha was a kind arbitrator. For mistakes on religious issues that emerged, she was a dignified corrector and a decisive and patient example of the straight path of Islam.
