We have two beautiful examples in our Deen. Khadija (ra) who was a CEO and we have Aishah (ra) who was married at a very young age. Ofcourse she later went onto become the second largest hadith narrator and one of the top jurists of her time.
“You can’t study the greatness of Khadija without seeing first hand the greatness of Aisha, may Allah be pleased with them both.
How so? When you look at the narrations that tell us of so many of the great virtues of Khadija; the words she said to comfort the prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam after Jibreel approached him for the first time, or her taking him to Waraqah ibn Nawfal, or Jibreel giving Khadijah salaam from himself and his Lord and giving her news of a house in paradise, or the prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam declaring that she believed in him when no one else did, and supported him with her wealth, and was the only one who bore him children, or even the narrations that tell us how the prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam responded in hearing the voice of Khadija’s sister Hala because of how much she resembled her, or that he would distribute meat as gifts years later in Medinah to the friends of Khadija…and, and, and, and…
You find these narrations were narrated to us by….Aisha.
She says she never envied anyone more than she envied Khadija even though she never met her, but that doesn’t stop her from showcasing Khadija to the world that we may know her. Consequentially we also learn more about Aisha and the companions and how they narrated to us what they learned from the prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam withholding nothing, may Allah be pleased with them all.”

DISCLAIMER – I do not agree that girls should not aspire for marriage. Marriage is a beautiful Sunnah of Islam and if a girl wants to aspire for marriage she can. Marriage, education and success are not mutually exclusive – alhumdulillah for Islam
