عن عائشة -رضي الله عنها- قالت: قُلتُ: يا رَسُولَ الله، نَرَى الجهادَ أفضلَ العمل، أفلا نُجاهِد؟ فقال: «لَكُنَّ أفضلُ الجهادِ: حجٌّ مبرور».
[صحيح.] - [رواه البخاري.]
المزيــد ...

‘Āishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported: I said: "O Messenger of Allah, we consider Jihad as the best deed. Should we not perform Jihad?" He said: "The best Jihad for you (women) is an accepted Hajj."

Explanation

The Mother of the Believers ‘Āishah (may Allah be pleased with her) and the women with her believed that the best of deeds and the most abundant in terms of reward is fighting in the cause of Allah against the enemies of Islam. So, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) guided them to a better deed for women: Hajj Mabrūr, a pilgrimage free of all sins.
