Imam Ahmad recorded that Ibn Abbas said: “The Messenger of God drew four lines on the ground and said, ‘Do you know what these lines represent? The best among the women of Paradise are Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Fatima bint Muhammad, Maryam bint Imran, and Asiya bint Muzahim.’”
• Asiya: The daughter of Muzahim, wife of the Pharaoh
• Mary: The virgin mother of Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him
• Khadija: The first wife of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings
be upon him
• Fatima: The fifth child of Prophet Muhammad and Khadija
God has promised the highest level of Paradise to these women.
The truth, wisdom, and lessons to be learned in these stories are from All Mighty God, and any mistake or shortcomings is from myself. I have known suffering and adversity in my life, so it has been a great honor to translate the stories of these great mothers in Islam for you.
