She surpassed them all in knowledge,
What she learnt was not from any College.
She had the Best of Teachers,
The one favoured by Allah above all creatures.
Her knowledge was not restricted,
Religion, medicine, poetry, were some of her areas of expertise,
When people slandered her she was given divine ease.
She was so ready to defend,
The religion of truth to the very end;
She could not be deterred,
Once her mind was made up, her conviction could not be stirred!
The epitome of bravery,
Very, very far from oppression and slavery;
She stood for honour and truth,
She relayed what she had heard from the Prophet (SAW),
In plain and simple terms, without any effort;
Her memory was excellent,
And in faith and courage did she never wilt.
A true Mother of the Faithful Believers,
Her life goes down in history,
An excellent role model, one of the Best Achievers!
Her piety and fear of Allah was so strong,
Even though she hardly committed any wrong,
At times she wished that she was like a tree,
In Paradise she wanted to be!
She was afraid to account for her deeds,
Because she feared what would await her,
To Allah she was so near,
And yet she cried and worried about what her fate would be.
People spread many lies about her,
But we Muslims hold her very dear,
She was very beloved by the Prophet (SAW),
The truth of the matter is simple and clear,
We’d be filled with true beauty and honour!
Oh, Ayesha, May Allah be pleased with her,
Our beloved and dear mother,
May Allah (SWT) guide us all on our journey of life and make it easy for us to practise the example of this beautiful lady, Insha’Allah Ameen!
