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.

For starters, I feel myself obligated to narrate a story from the life of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). The story is about the Jewish Rabbi Abdullah Ibn Salam, who converted to
Islam after the arrival of the prophet to Yathreb (Madinah nowadays) from Makkah.

Reciting the saying of Anas Ibn Malik, servant of the prophet, who recorded the story:

When the news of the arrival of the Prophet to Yathreb reached him, Abdullah Ibn Salam was working on a land of his. He left the land and went to meet the prophet, and when he did he said: “I want to ask you about three matters that no man knows but a prophet. What is the first sign of the hour (Referring to the hour of the judgement day)? And what is the first of edibles people would have in paradise? And how a kid takes after his father or his mother?”

“Gabriel has informed me about them (The answers to the questions)” Said the prophet.

“Gabriel?” Amazed as he was, he asked.

“Yes”

“The enemy to Jews among angels”

“Say: Whoever is the enemy of Jibreel– for surely he revealed it to your heart by Allah’s command, verifying that which is before it and guidance and good news for the believers” The prophet said reciting the verse (2:97), then he answered the questions.

“About the first sign of the hour, it’s a fire that comes out from the east and drive people to the west. And about the first of edibles people would have in paradise is the liver of the whale. And about the kid, if the fluid of a man came before the fluid of his woman (At the time of intercourse) then he takes after the man, while if the woman’s fluid came first then he takes after the woman.”

“Then I bare witness that there is no God but Allah, and you are a messenger of God” He said.

“Oh messenger of God, the Jews are slanderous people. If they knew that I bacame a Muslim, they would slander my persona.”

And when the delegates of the leaders of Jewish tribes came to the prophet he asked them “How do you acknowledge Abdullah among you?”

“The best of us and the best of our decsents. He is our head and the son of our head” They said.

“What if I told you that he became a Muslim?” The prophet asked.

“God forbid he does so!” They said. Immedietly after that, Abdullah came from behind and uttered outloud “Then I bare witness that there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is a messenger of God”

“You are the worst of us and the worst of our decsents” They said to him.

“This is what I was afraid of, Oh messenger of God!” Abdullah said to the prophet.
