aisha (radhiallahu 'anha)

The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu allahyi wa salaam) last blessed words:

‘Aisha (radhiAllahu anha) narrates: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu allahyi wa salaam) saying while he was leaning against me:

اللَّهُمََّ اغْفِرْلِى وَارْحَمْنِي وَألْحِقْنِي بِالرَّفِيقِ الأعْلَى

Allahummaghfirli, warhamni, wal hiqni bir-rafeeqil 'ala

“O Allah! Forgive me, show mercy to me, and bless me with the highest companionship.”

(Bukhari: 5674. Muslim, kitab fada'il al-Sahabah: 85)

Narrated ‘Āisha (radhiAllāhu ‘anha):

قَالَ قَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ رضى الله عنها كَانَ إِذَا دَخَلَتِ الْعَشْرُ أَحْيَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اللَّيْلَ وَأَيْقَظَ أَهْلَهُ وَشَدَّ الْمِئْزَرَ ‏.

With the start of the last ten days of Ramadān, the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ) used to tighten his waist belt [i.e., work hard] and used to keep awake all the night and perform Salāt and also used to keep his family awake for the Salāt [prayer].

Al-Qaasim ibn Muhammad said: “Whenever I would go out, I would first pass by the house of `Aaishah رضي الله عنها and give her my Salaam. One day I went out and I found her praying the Morning Prayer (i.e. Salaah al-Dhuhaa), reciting over and over the verse of Allaah: 

﴿فمن الله علينا ووقانا عذاب السموم﴾

{But Allaah has been gracious to us, and has saved us from the torment of the Fire.} [Surah al-Toor (52): 27]

She was invoking Allaah تعالى, crying and repeating the verse. So I got up and went to the market to take care of my needs. Thereafter I returned and there she was, still standing as I left her, (repeating the verse) praying and crying.” [Sifat al-Safwah (1/319)]

Narrated ‘Āisha (radhiAllāhu ‘anha):

“The Prophet (ﷺ) used to kiss and embrace (his wives) while he was fasting, and he had more power to control his desires  than any of you.”

Said Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (radhiAllāhu ‘anhu), “The person who gets discharge after casting a  look (on his wife) should complete his fast.”

Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): I used to perfume Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) with the best scent available till I saw the shine of the scent on his head and beard.
—  [Saheeh Bukhari Volume 7, No. 806. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]
When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) finished his prayer late in the night, he would see if I was awake and he would talk to me. If I was sleeping, he would awaken me, and pray two rak'ahs, then he would lie down as long as the mu'adhdhin came to him and call him for the dawn prayer. Then he would pray two rak'ahs lightly and come out for prayer.

The reward of one will not decrease the reward of the others.”

Ruling on the One Who Speaks Ill Of the Wives of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

Question:
There is an individual at (my) job who is a Raafidhee. Some of the workers informed me that he has explicitly accused the Mother of the Believers Aa'ishah (radiyallahu ‘anhaa) of fornication (and the refuge is with Allaah). Knowing that he did not do that in public and there has not occurred between me and him a debate regarding the issue, is it permissible for me to classify him with kufr (disbelief) by my saying: You are a Kaafir (disbeliever) because you hold this belief or is it a must that I sit with him and debate with him regarding the issue knowing that he openly displays (the qualities of) hypocrisy and lying; and is it permissible to sit with him inside or outside of work even when the issue does not arise? Please give us a verdict, may Allaah reward you.

Answer:
I say, whoever explicitly accuses the Mother of the Believers Aa'ishah the daughter of as-Siddeeq (radiyallaahu 'anhumaa), the one who Allaah has vindicated from above the seven heavens and has sent down her vindication in verses which are recited until the Day of Judgment; whoever does that then he has disbelieved with a kufr that expels him from the religion, and he is bound to spend eternity in the fire. Because he has belied Allaah (azza wa Jal) in His informing of her vindication. Al-Qurtubee has mentioned that in his Tafseer from Maalik. Ibn Katheer, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said in his Tafseer of the verse:

“Verily those who accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching their chastity and are good believers, then they are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter, and for them will be a great torment. On the Day when their tongues, hands and legs will testify against them as to what they used to do.”

(Sooratun-Noor, 24:23-24)

He, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: This is a threat from Allaah the Exalted to those who accuse chaste women who never think of anything touching their chastity and are believers, being all inclusive. Therefore, the Mothers of the Believers are even more entitled to enter into this than every other chaste woman. Especially she who was the reason for the revelation of this verse, that is Aa'ishah the daughter of as-Siddeeq. The scholars, may Allaah have mercy upon them, are in total agreement that whoever reviles her and accuses her with that which he has accused her with after that which has been mentioned in the verse, then he is a Kaafir; because he rejects the Qur'aan. Regarding the other Mothers of the Believers there are two sayings (amongst the scholars). The most correct of them is that they are similar to her (in this ruling), and Allaah knows best

And upon this, there is consensus that whoever reviles Aa'ishah (radiyallahu 'anhaa) (accusing) her with fornication after Allaah has vindicated her from it in His Book, then he is a Kaafir whose blood and wealth are permissible, and it is obligatory that he be killed (by those in judicial authority).

Shyakhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said in his book, as-Saarim al-Maslool Alaa Shaatimir-Rasool (sallaallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) Pg. 565-567: Chapter: Reviling the Wives of the Prophet:

“Al-Qaadee Abu Ya'laa, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: Whoever wrongfully accuses Aa'ishah of az-Zinaa (fornication) after Allaah has vindicated her from it has disbelieved with there being no difference of opinion concerning this.”

More than one of the scholars have reported the consensus upon this and more than one of the Imaams has explicitly stated this ruling. It has been narrated from Maalik:

“Whoever reviles Abu Bakr is to be lashed and whoever reviles Aa'ishah, accusing her with that which Allaah has vindicated her from then he is killed; for he has opposed the Quraan:

'Allaah forbids you from it and warns you not to repeat it if you are indeed believers.’(Sooratun-Noor, 24:17)”

Aboo Bakr ibn Ziyaad an-Naysaabooree said: I heard al-Qaasim ibn Muhammad saying to Ismaa'eel ibn Is-haaq:

“Al-Ma'moom came with two men bound in chains. One of them had cursed Faatimah and the other had cursed Aa'ishah. So he commanded with the killing of the one who had cursed Faatimah and he left the other. So Isma'eel said to him: What is their ruling except that they both are to be killed? For the one who has cursed Aa'ishah has rejected the Quraan. And upon this is the history of the people of Fiqh and knowledge from the Ahlul-Bayt and other than them.”

Narrated ‘Aisha (radhiAllaahu 'anha):

I asked Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) about looking hither and thither in prayer. He replied, “It is a way of stealing by which Satan takes away (a portion) from the prayer of a person.”

—  [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 1, no. 718]

Narrated ‘Aisha (radhiAllahu 'anha):

Some people asked Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) about fore-tellers. He said. “They are nothing” They said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Sometimes they tell us of a thing which turns out to be true.” Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “A Jinn snatches that true word and pours it into the ear of his friend (the fore-teller) (as one puts something into a bottle). The foreteller then mixes that word with one hundred lies.”

—  [Sahih Bukhari Vol. 7, no. 657. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan]

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ قَالَتْ تَلاَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم هَذِهِ الآيَةَ ‏{‏هُوَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ‏}‏ إِلَى قَوْلِهِ ‏{‏أُولُو الأَلْبَابِ‏}‏ قَالَتْ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ فَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ، فَأُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ سَمَّى اللَّهُ، فَاحْذَرُوهُمْ

Narrated ‘Aisha رضى الله عنها: Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) recited the Verse:

“It is He who has sent down to you the Book. In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundation of the Book, others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the Truth) follow thereof that is not entirely clear seeking affliction and searching for its hidden meanings; but no one knows its hidden meanings but Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it (i.e. in the Qur’an) the whole of it (i.e. its clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord. And none receive admonition except men of understanding.” (3.7)

Then Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said, “If you see those who follow thereof that is not entirely clear, then they are those whom Allah has named [as having deviation (from the Truth)] ‘So beware of them.”
