Aisha
May 06, 2017 rated it it was amazing
The facts of the life of this great woman though from hadiths were narrated like a beautiful story. The flow was effortlessly smooth. The book brings the story of Aisha (RA) to life, it humanises her. It will help you to see her character as ideals to imbibe. The book is entertaining, insightful and educational. I had to keep myself from my highlighters or I would have coloured in the whole text. Reading the book was not like a chore, I loved every moment of it. Read more... http://wp.me/p8yk7l- ...more

Knowing how fervently I love A'isha RA, it's no wonder that I enjoyed this book. Although she was already one of my biggest role models prior to reading this, Reşit Haylamaz increased my love, admiration, and respect for the mother of the believers tenfold. This book is well-referenced and generally accurate, and makes me want to strive to be more like this intelligent, inspirational woman. I don't like rereading books but I'm considering rereading this one with the company of a few highlighters ...more

This book has a very detailed description of Aisha (RA) knowing that she had the unique opportunity of being the closest person to the Prophet (ﷺ). The book itself is very informative on the life of Aisha (RA) and that from a whole new perspective. As the reader I'm immediately drawn into the colourful relationship between herself and the Prophet (ﷺ). The writing is artless; and by that I mean it has a simple lucidity to it that makes it flow like water.

Overall, it's quite an inspiring book. It

This book really help me to understand the woman besides Muhammad p.b.u.h. She was great as a scholar, faithful as a wife and also was very determine person who always seek the truth and justice through out her whole life. Reading this book inspired me to always be a moderate person who always seek knowledge and never forget Rabb, the Creator and the Educator.

It is a good book. Discussing a lot of things and almost every aspect of Aisha's life. Slightly disappointed as it does not contain enough material on the severed relation between her and Ali. Still a very good book to read!

A rather hilariously subservient book, completely worshipful and interesting at the same time.

Really interesting look into the life & character of Aisha bint Abi Bakr. Only downfall was the disjointed writing which was a bit confusing at times.
