Sweet words from Zaynab the mother of the believers

Zaynab (bint Jahsh رضي الله عنها) said yā rasulullāh salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa salam I am the greatest of your women that has a right upon you, I am the best of those that are wed and had the noblest Messenger (Gabriel) and I am the closest to you of kin, al-Rahmān married me to you from above his Throne (‘Arsh) and Gabriel was the intermediary for it to happen and I am the daughter of your uncle and you don’t have any wives that are closer to you than me.

Graded by al-Tabarī and abu al-Qāsim al-Tahāwī in Kitāb al-Hujjah.

قالت زينب يا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنا أعظم نسائك عليك حقا أنا خيرهن منكحا وأكرمهن سفيرا وأقربهن رحما فزوجنيك الرحمن من فوق عرشه وكان جبريل هو السفير بذلك وأنا ابنة عمتك وليس لك من نسائك قريبة غيري . أخرجه الطبري وأبو القاسم الطحاوي في كتاب الحجة
