Shia View On The Holy Prophet's (Pbuh) Death?

According to non-Shia beliefs, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) died a natural, peaceful death. I saw from Sheik Yasir Habib's video that Aisha and Hafsa were responsible for the Holy Prophet's (PBUH) death. I know this guy doesn't have much credibility from the Shia perspective, but is he true in this aspect? According to him, Aisha: 

  • never properly observed hijab
  • corrupted Islam
  • fabricated stories about our Holy Prophet (PBUH)
  • made Fatima (AS) cry when she was alive and was happy about her martyrdom
  • Did a thanksgiving prostration at Imam Ali's (AS) martyrdom
  • wouldn't let Imam Hasan (AS) be buried beside his grandfather (PBUH) and shot arrows on his dead body 

(Source: Sheikh Yasir Habib's videos) 

 

Did she really do all this? Why would the Prophet (PBUH) ever marry or even associate with someone capable of committing such despicable acts? If he hated his family to this extent, why would she even marry him in the first place?

First and foremost we have to understand, most of the prophets marriages were in regards to certain conditions. Such as tribal unity and freeing oppressed women. This is not to say he did not love them for this contradicts the conduct of the prophet A.S. We also have to understand, Allah in the holy quran shows us of many prophets whom had wives/sons/daughters whom rejected Allah and ended up being punished. Some of the wives of the prophet are included amongst them in the holy quran. Therefore, it isnt surprising nor does it affect the status or decisions of the representatives of Allah because they married them to help better them and bring them on the path of righteous and if the wives or anyone chooses not to obey Allah and the Messenger A.S based on their own free will, then they will be judged accordingly to what they have done. This is coming from what I understand, as a layman. I doubt Aisha did not observe hijab properly, as if anything, it was a must according to the societies time. However, corrupting islam or fabricating hadith is a possibility at the same time the scholars of ahlul sunnah or those corrupt people who truly fabricated lies by the hundreds like abu hurayrah and sufiyan and yazid and such could have done it in her name. Things that I am for sure about, according to the shia school of thought, is that she did harass and hurt the wives of the prophet like khadija a.s. and thus Allah sent down commands condemning certain wives including aisha. She also set forth and attacked Imam Ali A.S and did not allow the burial of Imam Hassan A.S and this is partly proven from sunni historical sources. There are some nasty stuff found in their hadith books in regards to Aisha and we as imami shias only bring them up to tell them to get rid of such garbage for the wife of Muhammad A.S could not go so low, putting aside her other evil actions. Its not like the imami shias have no respect for her, but she is condemned and we call out her hypocrisy as it is.You can read up some more on her here:

The answer is clear in the Quran in Surah Tahrim:
 

And [remember] when the Prophet confided to one of his wives a statement; and when she informed [another] of it and Allah showed it to him, he made known part of it and ignored a part. And when he informed her about it, she said, "Who told you this?" He said, "I was informed by the Knowing, the Acquainted."


If you two [wives] repent to Allah , [it is best], for your hearts have deviated. But if you cooperate against him - then indeed Allah is his protector, and Gabriel and the righteous of the believers and the angels, moreover, are [his] assistants.

Perhaps his Lord, if he divorced you (Aisha and Hafza), would substitute for him wives better than you - submitting [to Allah ], believing, devoutly obedient, repentant, worshipping, and traveling - [ones] previously married and virgins.

Allah sets forth an example to those who disbelieve the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut: they were both under two of Our righteous servants, but they acted treacherously towards them so they availed them naught against Allah, and it was said: Enter both the fire with those who enter.

 

Divorce is the most disliked permissible thing in the eyes of Allah... Then why would Allah be recommending it to the Prophet (pbuh)? It must be an expression of extreme displeasure towards certain persons.

 

By logical deduction, the characteristics mentioned in the wives that would be given to the Prophet (pbuh) if he divorced Aisha and Hafza must be absent in Aisha and Hafza themselves. When it is mentioned that something will be given to you, it follows that you do not already have it.

Bismillah.

Salaamun Alaykum.

 

Knowing the position of the Prophet (p), the first necessary point which has to be kept in mind, is that according to the Noble Qur’an, the Prophet is completely infallible;

 

"وَ مَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ الهَوَى – إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْىٌ يُوحَى"

 

“Nor does he speak out of [his own] desire:-

it is just a revelation that is revealed [to him]” (53:3-4)

 

He never speak out of his own desire, let alone the action. Therefore, everything he had done during his life, including his marriages, was based on Allah’s order and will (Revelation).

 

With Duas.

 

Narsis.
