Before stating anything about Aisha, we must tell you that such issues, if not addressed properly and in an atmosphere of prejudice, resentment, and bigotry, will lead to divisions and misplaced disputes that will no longer be compensable.
Therefore, there must always be mutual respect among all Islamic religions regarding each other's beliefs. Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.)’s treatment of Ayesha as the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) can be a good criterion for us to comment on Ayesha. Amir al-Mu'minin (pbuh) in the Battle of Jamal, despite seeing Aisha in front of him, never gave up the battle and did not consider the other side to be right. But on the other hand, with all due respect and reverence, he accompanied Aisha to her destination with her brother Mohammad bin Abi Bakr (r.a) and with a group of guards, all of whom were women.
Therefore, it should be noted that although Imam Ali (a.s) faced Aisha as an enemy and a person who had left the caliph and the Imam of his time, this did not cause him to disrespect her.
Regarding the curse of Aisha by the Ahl al-Bayt (a.s), it should be said that the Ahl al-Bayt of infallibility (pbuh) did not curse Aisha in particular, which is due to the respect they gave to the wives of the Prophet (pbuh), but the general curses in the Qur'an and hadiths there are, of course, that their implementation must be followed with full follow-up and expertise. Like cursing the oppressors and the wicked and the like.
According to some, she expressed remorse at the end of her life for waging the Battle of Jamal. Ayesha died on the night of the 17th of Ramadan in the year 58 or 57 AH at the age of 63 or 64 in Medina due to illness. Abu Hurayrah, the ruler of Medina at the time, prayed for him and buried Aisha in Baqee’ according to her will.
Question No. 100644
The subject of the question: Insulting the companions and wives of the prophet (s.a.w.a.)
as-Salamu Alykum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuhu,
A video clip has been seen several times on social network web sites showing a congregation during the martyrdom of al-Imam al-Jawad (a.s.). This group of people from the area known as al-A'dhamiyyah are shown shouting out insults upon 'Omar, A’isha, and others. Is this type of behavior condemned by the supreme religious authority, especially since it involves the insult of religious figures of our brothers of the Sunni school of thought, and it could potentially fuel unrest amongst the people of Iraq and jeopardize peace?
In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful
This type of behavior is condemned, strongly denounced and contrary to the commands of the Imams of the Holy Household of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) to their followers. Allah is The Guide.
