There are some that we don't know their fate, but as for the two, we have an hasan hadith where even Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) his angels and people sends la'nah over them. 

Can you send that narration (along with reference)?

So much of what is debated on these forums, on social media and in our communities is about extreme perspectives that have no footing in reality.

Salam. Did you know that you can click on a member's profile and see if their religion says Shia? Be careful of anyone's explanation if it goes against the fundamentals that Twelvers uphold.

According to SaheeH sunni ahadith, Ummul Momineen Ayesha repented later on for what she did (Battle of Camel).

It may also be said that we do not have any Hadith mentioning repentence of Hazrat Ayesha and no any Hadith is mentioned in which any of our Imam may have acknowledged and praised her such repentence in our maktab. In which case, her position is still suspicious and we still regard her as not good.

Now, if we are to take account of her repentance as true from sunni sources we also have to take other sources true as well which nullify her such act of repentance as there are plenty of Hadith which manifest her enmity towards Ahlebait as true.

Thank you for the explanation, I have always thought this was "proven" true, based on written works, video commentary and post like this but you have clarified. Its hard to know who to believe, There are instances where a scholar is trying to be informative, and will throw away a line like "other sources have said this" without giving full context or full truth. Everyone is taking a shot at everyone else, because the narrative needs to be maintained.

This is a social site attended by general public and it's not known whether there are certain well-educated scholars here or not. The position maintained by shias on all issues is also the position of great ulemas and the position of ulemas is based on their research. If a layman like myself cannot provide you reference of an event, it's not necessary that a scholar will also fail to provide you that as well. 

Secondly, the thread asks that after the repentance of Hazrat Ayesha, is there any Hadith by our imams which proves otherwise in our maktab. The answer of that is according to our maktab, there is no Hadith which says Hazrat Ayesha repented and nor there is any Hadith by any of our Imam who may have acknowledged and praised her such repentence. Thus, we form an opinion regarding her based on her own doings available in our sources which is not praiseworthy.

Salaam Aleikum,

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ حَنَانِ بْنِ سَدِيرٍ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ حَنَانِ بْنِ سَدِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) عَنْهُمَا فَقَالَ يَا أَبَا الْفَضْلِ مَا تَسْأَلُنِي عَنْهُمَا فَوَ اللَّهِ مَا مَاتَ مِنَّا مَيِّتٌ قَطُّ إِلَّا سَاخِطاً عَلَيْهِمَا وَ مَا مِنَّا الْيَوْمَ إِلَّا سَاخِطاً عَلَيْهِمَا يُوصِي بِذَلِكَ الْكَبِيرُ مِنَّا الصَّغِيرَ إِنَّهُمَا ظَلَمَانَا حَقَّنَا وَ مَنَعَانَا فَيْئَنَا وَ كَانَا أَوَّلَ مَنْ رَكِبَ أَعْنَاقَنَا وَ بَثَقَا عَلَيْنَا بَثْقاً فِي الْإِسْلَامِ لَا يُسْكَرُ أَبَداً حَتَّى يَقُومَ قَائِمُنَا أَوْ يَتَكَلَّمَ مُتَكَلِّمُنَا ثُمَّ قَالَ أَمَا وَ اللَّهِ لَوْ قَدْ قَامَ قَائِمُنَا أَوْ تَكَلَّمَ مُتَكَلِّمُنَا لَأَبْدَى مِنْ أُمُورِهِمَا مَا كَانَ يُكْتَمُ وَ لَكَتَمَ مِنْ أُمُورِهِمَا مَا كَانَ يُظْهَرُ وَ اللَّهِ مَا أُسِّسَتْ مِنْ بَلِيَّةٍ وَ لَا قَضِيَّةٍ تَجْرِي عَلَيْنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ إِلَّا هُمَا أَسَّسَا أَوَّلَهَا فَعَلَيْهِمَا لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ وَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ وَ النَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ.
 

‘Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from Hannan b. Sadeer. And Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad from Muhammad b. Isma‘il from Hannan b. Sadeer from his father. He said: I asked Abu Ja‘far about the two,  so he said: O Abu’l Fadl, do not ask me about those two because, by Allah, none among us ever dies without being discontented with them, and till this day there is none among us but that he is discontented with them. The elder from among us bequeaths this tradition to the younger. Surely, they suppressed our right and prohibited us from it, and they were the first to mount our necks and transgress upon us. Transgression in Islam will never cease until our Qa’im rises or our Speaker speaks. He then said: But by Allah, if our Qa’im arose and our Speaker spoke, the hidden affairs of the two would be revealed, and their apparent issues would be hidden. By Allah, no affliction or trouble harms us, the Ahl al-Bayt, except that those two are its root cause, so may the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people be upon them. (al-Kafi, Volume 8, hadith #340)(hasan)

95. A number of our companions, from Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Ismail Bin Mahraan, from Muhammad Bin Mansour Al-Khuzai’e, from Ali Bin Suweyd and Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Muhammad Bin Al-Husayn, from Muhammad Bin Ismail Bin Yazi’e, from his uncle Hamza bin Yazi’e, from Ali Bin Suweyd and Al-Hassan Biin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad Al-Nahdy, from Ismail Bin Mahraan, from Muhammad bin Mansour, from Ali Bin Suweyd who said: ‘I wrote to Abu Al-Hassan Musa (asws) whilst he (asws) was in the solitary confinement. I wrote asking him (asws) about his (asws) condition and about numerous matters. The answer did not come for months, then he (asws) answered me by an answer and this is its copy: - In the Name of Allah (azwj) the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to the High, the Magnificent. It is by His (azwj) Greatness and His (azwj) Light the hearts of the ‘الْمُؤْمِنِينَ’ (believers) achieve vision, and by His (azwj) Greatness and His (azwj) Light, (whereas) the ignorant ones are inimical to Him (azwj), and by His (azwj) Greatness and His (azwj) Light crave the ones in the heavens and in the earth and to Him (azwj) is the Means by the different deeds and the contradictory Religions. So the rightful, and the mistaken, and the stray, and the guided, and the hearing, and the deaf, and the seeing, and the blind ones are perplexed. So the Praise Belongs to Allah (azwj) Whose Religion was recognised and described by Muhammad (saww). Having said that, you are of the people whom Allah (azwj) has Blessed by Sending the Progeny (asws) of Muhammad (saww) (towards you and) and by special status, and Preserved the cordiality which attracted you to His (azwj) Religion, and what He (azwj) has Inspired from your guidance and your vision from the matters of your Religion that you give preference to them (asws) and are referring your matters to them (asws). You wrote to me (asws) asking me (asws) about matters which I (asws) was observing dissimulation in and concealed them for a while. So when the authority of the tyrant passed by, and there came the authority of the One (azwj) with Great Authority, by my (asws) departing from the world which has been condemned by its inhabitants who have hardened themselves against their Creator, I (asws) saw that I (asws) could explain to you what you had asked me (asws) about, fearing that our (asws) weak Shiites may enter into confusion because of the ignorance which is in front of them. So fear Allah (azwj), Mighty is His (azwj) Mention, and single out for these matters, its deserving ones, and be cautious that you should become a reason for the calamities against the successors (asws) or provoking (people) against them (asws) by publicising what I (asws) am entrusting you with and exposing what I (asws) have told you to conceal, and Allah (azwj) Willing, you will not do this. Firstly what I (asws) would like to inform you is that you should mourn for myself (asws) in this very night without remorse and no complaints, for what is to transpire is from what Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Ordained and is inevitable. So attach yourself to the Handle of the Progeny (asws) of Muhammad (saww), and the Firmest Handle of the successor (asws) after the successor (asws), and the submission to them (asws) and be pleased with what they (asws) say, and do not seek Religion from the ones who are not from your Shiites, and do not love their Religion, for they are traitors who have betrayed Allah (azwj) and His (azwj) Rasool (saww), and betrayed their trusts. And do you know how they betrayed their trusts? They were entrusted with the Book of Allah (azwj) so they distorted it and changed it, and evidenced it upon the rulers among them. So stay away from them. Allah (azwj) has Made them to Taste the clothing of the hunger, and the fear due to what they had done. And you asked about two men (Abu Bakr and Umar) who usurped the wealth of a man which he used to spend upon the poor and the needy and the traveller in need, and in the Way of Allah (azwj). So when they usurped that, they were not happy until they made him carry it unwillingly upon his ride to their own homes. When they undertook to be in charge of its spending, and so reached infidelity by doing that. By my (asws) life, they had become hypocrites before that and rejected against Allah (azwj) His (azwj) Words, and mocked at His (azwj) Rasool (saww), and they were both infidels. May Allah (azwj) Curse them, and the Angels, and the people altogether. By Allah (azwj), the ‘Eman’ (belief) did not enter into the heart of any one of them since their coming out from their condition (Kufr), and it did not increase them in anything except for doubts. They were deceivers, sceptical, hypocrites until they both died and the Angels of Punishment took them to the place of disgrace in the eternal abode. And you asked about those who were in the presence of that man whilst he was usurping his wealth and placed it upon his ride, and there were among them who knew about it and denied it. So those (Abu Bakr and Umar) are the first apostates from this community, and so may the Curse of Allah (azwj) and the Angels and all the people be upon them. And you asked about extent of our (asws) Knowledge, and it is upon three aspects. The past, and the future, and the newly recurring. So as for the past, it has been explained, and as for the future, it has been written down, and as for that which is newly occurring, so it gets imprinted upon the hearts, and resonated in the ears, and it is the highest of our (asws) Knowledge, and there is no Prophet (عليه السلام) after our (asws) Prophet (saww). And you asked about the mothers of their children (the followers of those two), and about their marriages, and about their divorces. So, as for the mothers of their children, they are prostitutes up to the Day of Judgement, having married without a guardian (Wali’s consent), and going through divorces without (completing the) waiting periods. And as for the one who enters into our (asws) Invitation (call to Wilayah), so his ‘Eman’ demolishes his misguidance, and so does his ‘Yaqeen’ conviction (demolish) his doubts. And you asked about the Zakaat among them. So, there was nothing from the Zakaat (for them), as you are more deserving of it, because we (asws) have made that to be lawful for you, and those who are from you wherever they may be. And you asked about the weak. So the weak is the one who cannot argue against (the batil) and he does not understand the differences, for if he understands the difference, then he is not with the weakness. You asked about the ‘الشَّهَادَاتِ’ testimonies for them. So establish the testimony for the sake of Allah (azwj), even if it is against your own-self, and the parents and the relatives in what is between you and them. So if you fear injustice against your brother, don’t (be part of it). And call to the Law of Allah (azwj), as He (azwj) has (placed those) in our (asws) recognition (Ma’rifat). The one who hopes would be Answered and do not barricade yourself by the fort of hypocrisy. And befriend the Progeny (asws) of Muhammad (saww) and do not speak of what reaches you from us (asws), and ascribe to us that ‘this is false’, and you may know something from us (asws) which is against it, for you do not know why we (asws) may have said it, and upon which perspective we may have described it. Believe in what I (asws) inform you (asws) and do not publicise what I (asws) have told you to conceal from what I (asws) inform you. It is from the obligatory right of your brother that you do not conceal anything from him which might benefit him in the affairs of the world and the Hereafter. And do not hold a grudge against him and not to hurt him, and answer his call when he calls you and do not leave him alone between him and his enemies from the people even though they may be closer to you than him, and support him in his illness. It is not from etiquettes of the ‘الْمُؤْمِنِينَ’ Believers, the defrauding, and the injuring, and the treachery, and the arrogance, and the vulgarities, and the immoralities, and the commanding for such things. So if you were to see the deformed Bedouin in legions (large armies), so wait for your relief (Al-Qaim (asws)), and for your Shiites, the believers, and when the sun rises, raise your vision to the sky and look at what Allah (azwj) has Done with the criminals. So I (asws) have explained to you all of this in summary. And send greetings upon Muhammad (saww) and his (saww) Progeny (asws), the righteous’.

This is a social site attended by general public and it's not known whether there are certain well-educated scholars here or not. The position maintained by shias on all issues is also the position of great ulemas and the position of ulemas is based on their research. If a layman like myself cannot provide you reference of an event, it's not necessary that a scholar will also fail to provide you that as well. 

Secondly, the thread asks that after the repentance of Hazrat Ayesha, is there any Hadith by our imams which proves otherwise in our maktab. The answer of that is according to our maktab, there is no Hadith which says Hazrat Ayesha repented and nor there is any Hadith by any of our Imam who may have acknowledged and praised her such repentence. Thus, we form an opinion regarding her based on her own doings available in our sources which is not praiseworthy. 

We fall into this trap of speculating about events & people that I think need to be left for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) & his final Judgement. We want answers now to prove our point of view. Is Ayesha bad, why didn't Ali(عليه السلام) fight for Fatima and give allegiance to the men who killed her, did they really kill her, why did the Prophet ﷺ not name the hypocrites and so on ... These are not articles of faith, they do not inform the religion of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), its just the "drama" the personalities, it's the "reality" show surrounding the real message.

3:7 - He Who sent down upon you the Scripture. Some of its signs are explicit; they are the foundation of the Scripture, while others are equivocal. So as for those whose hearts swerve, they follow whatever is equivocal of it, seeking tribulation and seeking its interpretation. But none knows its interpretation except Allah. Thus, those firmly rooted in knowledge say, “We have attained faith in it; all is from our Lord.” But none constantly remembers except those with understanding.

I think a better conversation is centered around - what lessons can we learn from the manner in which Ali(عليه السلام) treated Ayesha and how can we implement those in our lives. This elevates the position of Ali(عليه السلام) and helps us use his actions as a guide to attaining better imam. i/We don't need to degrade others to elevate the AhlAlbayt (عليه السلام), Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) did that already.

Im preaching sorry ...

Well bro, you have just emphasized one principal of Furu-e-Deen that's Amr bil Maruf when you said we shall focus on how Imam Ali (عليه السلام) dealt with Hazrat Ayesha. But what about Nahi anal munkir, why you think one should forget that while Allah (عزّ وجلّ) has criticized in Quran those who were unfaithful towards prophet why should a Muslim forget that about Ahlebait (عليه السلام) become one of hypocrite? Both these principles go together and consitute ones Iman and not anyone of it could be ignored.

Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can criticize whomever he pleases because allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is aware of all things, hidden and revealed. We are 1400 years from an even that a hand full of people were aware of. All we are doing is speculating for the purpose of what? If the purpose is to inform our faith, I think it falls short. If its to prove Ali(عليه السلام) position then its not needed, we have the Quran 33:33, 5:55, 3:61 and many more that attest to his selection for those who are earnestly seeking guidance? If its to determine who is right and wrong - there is no disagreement. If its to further our understanding of Ali(عليه السلام) character and inform our conduct then absolutely. But the conversation should be about Ali(عليه السلام) and not A'isha because her conduct is only important insofar as it demonstrates his character.

While I think the OP purpose in asking the question regarding Ayesha, was intended to assuage the feelings he has grown up with and reconcile others who remain having certain feelings towards those figures in history. Coming from a mixed family of  Sunni Shia ( SUSHI), we are carefully warned to aware of the feelings of our sunni cousins.

Our Marjae have been very firm and rebuked those who create fitna, like Yasser al Habeeb, who is so obviously a British Agent designed to divide Muslims. All the marjae are aware of the true hadith and know what happened based on strong traditions.

I think the OP was somewhat surprised by the vitriol towards Ayesha and the two first Khalifas. The ones among us who seek to pull Sunnis back to the path of righteousness, away from mistaken history and paid narratives, try never to hurt the feelings of our sunni brothers. 

That being said @The Alchemist, once you once you are firmly on the right path, do you're own research and read books that have compiled hadith that go into details.

We ally with our sunni brothers since we are surrounded by Global kufr and the chance for hadaya with our slightly misguided brothers , is very strong especially the mohibe AhlulBayt.

I am not trying to hijack your thread,  but I would be careful turning over huge rocks, you may not like what you find underneath.

We have no understanding of the depth of the Ghaffor ru Raheem, he will extend his infinite mercy to whomever he wishes. Repentance with Sincere Tawbah is very real. We must remember the majority of the readers of ShiaChat at anytime is guests many of whom are not Shia,  based on probability.

If they're Sunnie We can only guide them with kindness and humility. So I would suggest in future be careful what you ask for you may get more than you bargained for.

We should worry about our own ikhlaq and eeman, and our loyalty to the Imams and our living Imam ez zamana. Those long past will have to deal with their own punishment in the Qabr and hereafter. Forgiveness is in Allah's Hands, we can never know what and why he decides to forgive a certain individual  Such speculation is not very productive or practical.

Purpose was to ascertain what is shia scholarly opinion on her. Whether she repented as per authentic shia sources or not? Another question that I had asked in OP (which is mostly ignored by members who had posted here) is how did she die according to authentic shia sources? Did she die naturally (as saheeh sunni ahadith mention)?

sources are listed in chat,  but since you asked the question brother, you will need to check authenticity depending on your belief in the evidence. 

However , if you have watched Game of Thrones,  then remember the palace intrigue,  assassinations, side plots, payoffs,  shifting allegiances ( overall attempt at destroying the Islam of Rasoolullah)  that Muawiya was capable of.....make Cersi look like a kindergartener.

It was completely serious when Rasoolullah had a dream that a monkey has ascended his holy pulpit and is issuing commands.

 

It was only thru Imam Ali's acknowledged superior knowledge, courage, forbearance and Celestial help, and subsequent Sacrifices of Imam Hasan and Imam Husain and their families, that Islam barely survived the destruction by earlier rulers. Read the letters in Nahjul Balagha between Imam Ali and Muawiya.

@The Alchemist

 

Ibn Abd Rabbeh writes in his famous book, Iqd-ul-Farid (The Unique Necklace), Volume II, page 203, that many years after Muawiya was firmly established on the throne, and had consolidated his position as the khalifa of the Muslims, he posed, one day, the following question to one of his courtiers:

Muawiya: You are a wise, intelligent and knowledgeable man. I would like to know what in your opinion, exactly, was the cause of the civil wars of the Muslims.

The Courtier: The murder of Uthman.

Muawiya: No.

The Courtier: Ali's accession to the throne.

Muawiya: No.

The Courtier: Then I will request the Commander of the Faithful to enlighten me in this regard.

Muawiya: Well, I will tell you what was the real cause of the civil wars of the Muslims. All the conflicts and civil wars of the Muslims had their origins in the electoral committee which Umar appointed to choose a khalifa.

And please brother Remember that committee was filled with acknowledged enemies of Imam Ali, and the order was given to kill the opposing member of the committee decision, no matter who he was. Imam Ali was set up for death at the hands of the committee

None of the references in the link you mentioned are from shia sources.

Classical history books written by Sunni scholars (like Ibn Khaldun, etc) do mention that she was killed and the plot to kill her was orchestrated by Muawiya. Yet other history books written by sunni scholars (Ibn Saad, etc) mention that she died a natural death. However, these sources (of history) are not deemed as reliable as per sunni standards. Sunnis do not take these books as hujjah. Narrations in sunni sources with saheeh asnaad as per their standards mention that she died a natural death and Abu Huraira led her funeral prayer.

What does shia authentic sources say? I wonder why here on ShiaChat everybody is sharing sunni sources despite being asked to share Shia sources!!!

It's purpose is to divulge the oppressions of those who are considered as sacred by some so that truth may be separated from falsehood and that due credit be given to those who truely deserve it and not to those who don't deserve it.

Everyone's character should be discussed in relation to Islam. Our criticism of Hazrat Ayesha is not because we have personal animosity towards her rather because of her own actions against Islam and the Holy personalities of Islam.

Dear respected brother in Islam,  first source is well known shia and others also, but please don't mind the line about bakris, you again asked .

why do you need shia sources when I give you commonly accepted sources??

 this dividing sources into sunni and shia is used by our enemies against us, quite often brother.

Not true respected brother. 

This is highlighting that all of the enemies and power hungry jealous people were on one side and Imam Ali had less than 40 true believers on his side , and he still prevailed against impossible odds.

Aisha and her death is the closing of loose ends,  GoT/Muawiya style.

Like He did with Imam Hasan and Jundah.

These were palace intrigues on steroids.

You can't close your eyes to the circumstances surrounding events, to do so is historically naive and intellectually dishonest,  with all respect my dear brother.

At least, it contains shia sources (don't know whether authentic or not).

Thanks for sharing this brother.

Commonly accepted sources? As much as I know, classical books on history (Ibn Saad, Ibn Khaldun, al-Tabari, etc) are full of conflicting accounts. These books are not even fully accepted by sunnis. How can they be commonly accepted to both? Some of these books contain asnaad before each historical narration; so truth can be separated from falsehood in those books. But unfortunately, asnaad in these books are often disconnected. It is due to that, hadith books are given preference over history books.

I don't know this. I just asked shia sources for knowing authentic shia stance on this particular issue.

We are speculating beyond the facts, the rest in conjecture. The only point worth discussing from this far out is "how does the Imams (عليه السلام) conduct in these circumstances inform our behavior as Muslims". The idea that our imams were "oppressed" doesn't sit well with me. That would require me to accept that they had anything other that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) restricting their freedom. They did not, because even in the face of death and humiliation, they always worked in the way of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

If you believe they are truly infallible & the Prophet made them aware of their circumstance then the "oppression" is their lesson to us today. They are telling us from 1400 years ago, this is the conduct of a true Muslim, you respect your enemy even when they have a deep hatred for you. You work in the way of Allah, always - never for this word There are so many examples esp for us Shi'a and we gloss over them and go to the drama. The reason the Calipha & A'isha and Mooaweeeha (insult intended) and yzziiid are mentioned is because of AhlalBayt - otherwise these things are footnotes in history. I'd like to make them all a footnote - a pot hole in the prophetic mission.

As regards oppressing imams, it has been mentioned in the Quran that those who disbelieve in Allah (عزّ وجلّ) will try to blow out light of guidance but they will never be able to. So, oppression is reality and they tried their best to restrict their freedom by limiting their movements and limiting access to their shias to such an extent that shias during the time of all Imams could not meet them freely except in the time of Imam Baqir (عليه السلام) and Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) but is it really the case that it may lead one to doubt supermacy of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) and affect His oneness. The answer is No. Allah (عزّ وجلّ) says them that not only such an oppression will fail in this world but they will be humiliated in the next one with severe punishment.

Demise

Aisha died of a natural death on 10 Shawwal 58/8 August 678 (or 57/677) at the age of 66 in MedinaAbu Hurayra led her funeral prayer and she was buried in the al-Baqi' cemetery.[46] Some said she died on 17 Ramadan 58.[47]

 

  1.  Maqrīzī, Imtāʿ al-asmāʾ, vol. 6, p. 42.
  2.  Bayāḍī, al-Ṣirāṭ al-mustaqīm, vol. 3, p. 48.

There is a disagreement about why Aisha died. Some people believe that she died a natural death. Others appeal to certain sources to show that Mu'awiya had a role in killing Aisha by digging a hole and throwing her in it,[48] because she had criticized him for forcing people to pledge their allegiance to Yazid.[49] People who believe that Aisha was killed date the event to the late Dhu l-Hijja.[50]

 

Shia sources about death of Aisha by order of Muawaih

While you now know the words of Amir al-Mo'mineen (عليه السلام) about her. Let me present before you the words of Umar bin Khattab about A'isha & Hafsa as recorded in a hadith of Bukhari:

"Let the nose of `Aisha and Hafsa be stuck to dust (i.e. humiliated)!'

The hadith itself contains many interesting sentences of Umar al-Khattab, I am highlighting them in the following hadith:

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

For the whole year I had the desire to ask `Umar bin Al-Khattab regarding the explanation of a Verse (in Surat Al-Tahrim) but I could not ask him because I respected him very much. When he went to perform the Hajj, I too went along with him. On our return, while we were still on the way home. `Umar went aside to answer the call of nature by the Arak trees. I waited till he finished and then I proceeded with him and asked him. "O chief of the Believers! Who were the two wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) who aided one another against him?" He said, "They were Hafsa and `Aisha." Then I said to him, "By Allah, I wanted to ask you about this a year ago, but I could not do so owing to my respect for you." `Umar said, "Do not refrain from asking me. If you think that I have knowledge (about a certain matter), ask me; and if I know (something about it), I will tell you." Then `Umar added, "By Allah, in the Pre-lslamic Period of Ignorance we did not pay attention to women until Allah revealed regarding them what He revealed regarding them and assigned for them what He has assigned. Once while I was thinking over a certain matter, my wife said, "I recommend that you do so-and-so." I said to her, "What have you got to do with the is matter? Why do you poke your nose in a matter which I want to see fulfilled.?" She said, How strange you are, O son of Al-Khattab! You don't want to be argued with whereas your daughter, Hafsa surely, argues with Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) so much that he remains angry for a full day!" `Umar then reported; how he at once put on his outer garment and went to Hafsa and said to her, "O my daughter! Do you argue with Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) so that he remains angry the whole day?" H. afsa said, "By Allah, we argue with him." `Umar said, "Know that I warn you of Allah's punishment and the anger of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) . . . O my daughter! Don't be betrayed by the one who is proud of her beauty because of the love of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) for her (i.e. `Aisha)." `Umar addled, "Then I went out to Um Salama's house who was one of my relatives, and I talked to her. She said, O son of Al-Khattab! It is rather astonishing that you interfere in everything; you even want to interfere between Allah's Apostle and his wives!' By Allah, by her talk she influenced me so much that I lost some of my anger. I left her (and went home). At that time I had a friend from the Ansar who used to bring news (from the Prophet) in case of my absence, and I used to bring him the news if he was absent. In those days we were afraid of one of the kings of Ghassan tribe. We heard that he intended to move and attack us, so fear filled our hearts because of that. (One day) my Ansari friend unexpectedly knocked at my door, and said, "Open Open!' I said, 'Has the king of Ghassan come?' He said, 'No, but something worse; Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) has isolated himself from his wives.' I said, 'Let the nose of `Aisha and Hafsa be stuck to dust (i.e. humiliated)!' Then I put on my clothes and went to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)'s residence, and behold, he was staying in an upper room of his to which he ascended by a ladder, and a black slave of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) was (sitting) on the first step. I said to him, 'Say (to the Prophet (ﷺ) ) `Umar bin Al-Khattab is here.' Then the Prophet (ﷺ) admitted me and I narrated the story to Allah's Messenger (ﷺ). When I reached the story of Um Salama, Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) smiled while he was lying on a mat made of palm tree leaves with nothing between him and the mat. Underneath his head there was a leather pillow stuffed with palm fibres, and leaves of a saut tree were piled at his feet, and above his head hung a few water skins. On seeing the marks of the mat imprinted on his side, I wept. He said.' 'Why are you weeping?' I replied, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)!  Caesar and Khosrau are leading the life (i.e. Luxurious life) while you, Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) though you are, is living in destitute". The Prophet (ﷺ) then replied. 'Won't you be satisfied that they enjoy this world and we the Hereafter?' "
