10 Unique Privileges 

`Aaisha (radiyallahu anha) says: “Allah Ta’ala has blessed me with ten privileges over the other wives of Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) and I say this without bragging or boasting:

- I was the most beloved to Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) among his wives. 

- My father was the most beloved of all men to Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam). 

- I was the only virgin whom Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) had married.  

- He married me at the age of seven. 

- I went to live with him at the age of nine. 

- (When people had slandered me and levelled accusations against me) Allah Ta’ala had exonerated me and confirmed my chastity and purity. 

- In his final illness, Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) asked all his wives for permission to come to my house, and the last days of Rasulullah’s (salallahu alaihi wasallam) earthly life was spent in my house without any division with the other wives. 

- The last thing to enter the blessed mouth of Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) was my saliva. (She had chewed on the miswaak to soften it before giving it to Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) to use).

- Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) passed away whilst his blessed head was between my chin and my chest.

- Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) was buried in my house.”
