I would like to add that indeed in some sahaba's -earlier- Quran copies the Verse (33/6) was read "وأزواجه أمهاتهم وهو أب لهم" by Ubay ibn Ka'ab (May Allah be pleased with him) which means -be careful this is my own translation- (and his wife are their mothers and he's a father for them) and "النبي أولى ...

The wives of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) became mothers of the believers after they got married to him. Before the marriage they were normal women with whom anyone could have married.

The wives of the Prophet, like the first Muslim community, like any Muslim ... had immense respect for the Prophet's position and didn't raise their voices against him in a hostile manner.

Yes the hadith from Sunan Abu Dawud is daef because of the narrator Yazid bin Abi Ziyad. There's no authentic hadith that proves the Prophets wives covered their faces. The closest thing what one can use is the ayah from Sural ah-Ahzab 33:53= ...And when you ask for anything you want, ask them from behind a screen... But it can easily be said it's ...

First I don't know where you've got the information that the mother of believers 'Aisha'h bint abi Bakr () died 50 a.H. I couldn't make out any source saying so. Secondly as her death has been after the death of our prophet () any source or narration that may tell us a date is strictly speaking not a hadith, but an athar or khabar. Imam al-Bukhari (for ...
