There Was Another Aishah!

Do you know Aisha?

Yes Aisha, the daughter of Abu Bakr. No, I meant Aisha, the granddaughter of Abu Bakr, thereby the maternal niece of Aisha, our mother. May Allaah be pleased with them all.

She is Umm 'Imran Aisha bint Talha bin 'Ubaydullaah from the Quraysh, Al-Madaneeyah by residence. Her father, Talha bin 'Ubaydullaah, was one of the ten honorable companions our Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) bore witness of paradise for and her mother was Umm Kulthoom bint Abi Bakr As-Sideeq – may Allâh be pleased with her.

She was first married to her maternal cousin, Abdullaah ibn AbdurRahaman ibn Abi Bakr As-Sideeq. After his death, she married Mus’ab ibn Az-Zubayr. It was recorded that Mus'ab gave her a bride-price of one million dirham. Mus'ab was killed in Ibn Zubayr-Abdul Malik imbroglio. Little wonder she had a castle in the city of Taif. Later, 'Umar ibn 'Ubaydullaah ibn Ma'mar At-Taymee married her.

She narrated from her maternal aunt Aisha, the mother of the believers and many students narrated from her including the Imam ‘Ataa ibn Abi Rabaah, Habeeb ibn Abi ‘Amrah, her son Talha, and her nephews Moosa ibn ‘Abdullaah, Talha ibn Yahya and Mu’awiyyah ibn Ishaaq. She was eloquent, learned and grounded in the stories of the Arabs and their poetries. It is said that she took these from her aunt, our mother Aisha, may Allaah be pleased with her.

Abu Zuhr'ah Ad-Dimishqee said: a distinguished woman, people narrated from her because of her virtues and good manners.

The Imam Yahya ibn Ma'een said about her: a reliable narrator, a proof.

Ibn Hibban mentioned her among the reliable narrators.

She was severally described as from the most beautiful women of the Quraysh. May Allaah have Mercy on her.

You can find her narrations in the Kutubu-Sittah (the six canonical books) - Saheehs Al-Bukharee and Muslim, the Sunans of Abu Daawood, At-Tirmidhee, An-Nasaai and ibn Majah.
