Madam Aishah, a Study of her age at the time of her marriage with Prophet Muhammad

Historical Fact 17. Her status as a jurist:

Aishah became a great disseminator of Islamic teachings, law and particularly sayings of the Prophet. As many as 2210 traditions are recorded with reference to Aishah only and no other source. In al-Bukhari alone, 143 were attributed to her.

In fact, her status was not merely that of a great narrator, but rather she was a jurist in her own right, a commentator and a great theologian. She is considered the best among the female jurists. Even senior Companions of the Prophet approached her with queries regarding Islamic doctrines and tenets of faith. Persons no less than the Caliphs Umar and Uthman sought her help in resolving some complicated issues.

Abu Musa al-Ashari once said: ‘Wherever we met some problem in the comprehension of some law, we always approached Aishah and she would solve our problems in a scholarly manner.’

Masruq Hamadani recorded: ‘I often saw some senior and great Companions of the Prophet seeking Aishah’s help in resolving matters related to inheritance.’

Urwah ibn Zubayr stated: ‘I never saw anyone more aware than Aishah of matters pertaining to the tenets and doctrines covering the lawful and the forbidden things and various branches of knowledge, for instance poetry and literature.’

It is important to realize not just her later authority, but also that the Prophet had urged his friends to ‘consult Aishah’ over Islamic advice, even while he still lived.

This surely indicates that Aishah only came to the Prophet as his wife after being educated and trained by her father, at the age of 18-19, and not earlier.
