Sunni View Short answer: The fighting was instigated by Sab'iyyah, it was not the intention of Ali or A'ishah. The historians like al-Tabari (that you referred in the question) and others mention that this fighting was instigated by a group known as the Sab'iyyah in order to prevent the conciliation between the companions. After the killing of Uthman,...

Aishah ( رضي لله عنھا ) was six years old when she married the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎) and nine years old when he consummated the marriage with her. This is what is proven from the books of hadeeth and has been agreed upon by all the scholars of Islam. Some of the narrations are as follows: Aishah ( رضي الله عنها ) reported that the Prophet(صلى ...

Shia View Short Answer: She wanted her cousin Talha to succeed Uthman (The first Umayyad caliph) and was jealous of Ali. She ignored the Prophet's fore-warning about taking part in such a conflict. She also disregarded Umm Salama's warnings not to pick a fight against Ali as a especially revered Prophet's companion. Detailed Answer: These have been ...

There are some Ayahs in Quran regarding marriages of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) like the below Ayah: لَا يَحِلُّ لَكَ النِّسَاء مِن بَعْدُ وَلَا أَن تَبَدَّلَ بِهِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكَ حُسْنُهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ - الاحزاب 52 But I have never heard an Ayah that orders Prophet to marry Aisha. I think making an argument ...

@Ali has mentioned the social political connections, but I would like to elaborate more: It has come partly from here but it is in Persian. Your question is basically why god has let the Prophet marry Aisha? The answer is that it has been for political reasons. The prophet (pbuh), to reach better status socially and politically, in order to advertise and ...

(Sunnah view, I guess) Well, this will be quite the story. My reference shall be the documentary series aired in Ramadan 1432 Hijri. (Al-Hassan Wa Al-Hussain [RA]). First, to give you a complete idea about the situation, what were Ayesha (RA), Talha (RA) and Zubair (RA) doing? Where were they? It all began with the murder of the Caliph Othman bin Affan (...

Both the men were mahrams of Ayesha. Apparently the relationship of the narrator is not obvious so I'll explain that: Abu Salama was fostered by Umm Kulthum bint Abu Bakr, who was the sister of Ayesha. Hence Ayesha was his foster aunt: لأنها خالة أبي سلمة من الرضاع أرضعته أختها أم كلثوم — Fath al Bari وأرضعته أم كلثوم ، فعائشة خالته من الرضاعة ...

The marriage of the Prophet ﷺ to 'Ā'isha was 100% legitimate from an Islamic point of view as she was already a woman at the time of marriage, and all the conditions of marriage were fulfilled. She and her family blessed the marriage, as did the Prophet. The Age of 'Ā'isha at the Time of Her Marriage As 'Ā'isha herself narrated her story, she was betrothed ...

This question could have been put more politely and you could have asked about circumstances of death of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) instead of making offensive, far-fetched judgements. I really wish the question is edited. Coming to the question, if you had been sincere, you would have found the other version of the hadeeth narrating the complete ...

First of all the hadith you are referring to is clearly saying that there was a screen between her and her visitors (see here). Putting a screen or asking somebody to hide ones nakedness (or body or 'awrah) is reported in several ahadith about the Prophet () or others taking a ghusl, so this isn't something strange at all! Secondly how do you define a non-...

There is various views in this issue, some says they can be married before puberty age, and even have intercourse with them if they are 9 regardless of them being mature of not. Another says that marriage is valid for young but intercourse should not happen before "they are ready" for it. However, there is no clear cut ruling on what defines when a girl is "...

All perfect praise be to Allah First of all i would like to encourage you on starting exploration of ahadees, but i would like to add that you need to keep in contact with a good shiekh al hadith for getting all the answers of your questions side by side, and have a book on history of sunni ahadees, their rules and history, such book will also be suggested ...

Let me give a short answer: Honor is very well proved for the holy prophet, his wives, and his whole family. Their is nothing to dishonor them. Now, this title Allah gave to them, does not only mean that one cannot marry them (until or unless the title mother means only YOU CANT MARRY HER for someone), but it also shows the respect being given to them. As ...

When the Muslims were put to test (i.e. troubled by the pagans), Abu Bakr decided to migrate to the land of Ethiopia. THIS HAPPENED WAY AFTER THE MIGRATION TO ABYSSINIA IN 9 BH! Second part of the hadith: At that time the Prophet (ﷺ) was in Mecca, and he said to the Muslims, "In a dream I have been shown your migration place, a land of date palm ...

Simple answer? Don't. And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah [recited], they are denied [by them] and ridiculed; so do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together [An-Nisa'...

The Verse 33:6 must be understood as a reward for the Messenger of Allah and his household (his wives and children)... this means the honor for our Prophet applies for his wife too as they have been quoted in the same sentence and the words "النبي" and "أزواجه" are contented with the important letter "و" which in Arabic is called waw al-'atf واو العطف that ...

The book from which the excerpt below is extracted is seemingly the oldest [history] book of Shia written during about 60 years since about 4 years after the holy prophet --peace be upon him and his household-- passed away, narrating the Ahadeeth and events mostly directly from the companions of the holy prophet and his household, peace be upon them: ...

How to defend Aisha's marriage age? Firstly, you don't need to defend Aisha's marriage age to defend Islam. In Islam, it is legal for someone to marry if he reaches puberty and has the physical capability to have sexual relations. It's totally subjective and varies from people to people. Back to the main question. To defend Aisha's marriage, you should ...

Yes al Mut'im ibn 'Aday الْمُطْعِم بْنَ عَدِيّ (he died as a kafir but protected our Prophet from Quraish when he turned back from at-Taa'if and therefore was quoted in a hadith after the battle of Badr) asked abu Bakr for her hand for his son before our Prophet asked Khawla bint Hakim to ask for him. This is based on this marfo' narration from hadith ibn a-...

Yes, she was engaged to Jubayr ibn Mut'im before she married the prophet (s.a.w). The idea to match Aisha with Muhammad was suggested by Khawlah bint Hakim. After this, the previous agreement regarding the marriage of Aisha with Jubayr ibn Mut'im was put aside by common consent. -- Wikipedia

No, it is not immoral (why should it be immoral? marrying is one thing and sexual intercourse is another thing ) No, not all things Muhammad did are desirable, for example, he traveled on a camel, but we must not desire to travel on a camel.

Please know that Umm-ul-Momineen Aisha was never shy to reveal the intimate details of her marital life because it has helped Muslim women throughout this ummah's 1400+ years of existence. So even hypothetically considering that this were true, there was no reason for her to not reveal it. Another thing, sex is not considered a bad thing in Islam, so if a ...
