It was narrated in a trustworthy saying on Imam Al-Termithi that Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) saw in his dreams the angel Gabriel with a fabric sheet with an image of Aisha, daughter of his best friend St. Abu Bakr, indicating to the image and saying: “This is your wife in this life and in the afterlife”.

The prophet had this vision more than three times, so he was convinced it was a prophecy. The prophet (p.b.u.h) went, therefore, to his friend Abu bakr (r.a) and told him about his vision, so they made the engagement to fulfill the prophecy. Aisha (r.a) was nine years old by then, but she didn’t marry the prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) until she was thirteen, after the immegration (Hijra) to Al-Madina.

The later Muslim historians and scholars were told by the prophet’s companions that when Aisha (r.a) got married to the prophet, she entered the house carrying a doll. She loved playing with dolls still back then.

One day, as she narrated herself, she was lining up her dolls on a shelf in her bedroom. When the prophet got into the room, he asked her about what was she doing, so she answered him saying that she was just arranging the army of King Solomon (p.b.u.h). He asked her then about the horses and why were they having wings, so she said “Weren’t they having wings so they could fly?”

The prophet (p.b.u.h) laughed for what she said.
