Many shia’s raise questions on the status of our mothers i.e. ummulmominin aisha[ra] & hasfa[ra]: that she were not believers & both were munafiqs!! & shia ayatullah’s & shia alim’s even got certificate to accuse these two pure women [aisha[ra] & hafsa[ra]] in adultery & criticism!! [nauzubillah]
& shia quotes this verse of surah tahreem [66:4-5]:
Allah said surah tahreem ayah 4-5:
إِن تَتُوبَآ إِلَى اللَّهِ فَقَدْ صَغَتْ قُلُوبُكُمَا وَإِن تَظَاهَرَا عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ مَوْلَـهُ وَجِبْرِيلُ وَصَـلِحُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمَلَـئِكَةُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ ظَهِيرٌ – عَسَى رَبُّهُ إِن طَلَّقَكُنَّ أَن يُبْدِلَهُ أَزْوَجاً خَيْراً مِّنكُنَّ مُسْلِمَـتٍ مُّؤْمِنَـتٍ قَـنِتَـتٍ تَـئِبَـتٍ عَـبِدَتٍ سَـئِحَـتٍ ثَيِّبَـتٍ وَأَبْكَاراً
If you two turn in repentance to Allah, your hearts are indeed so inclined; but if you help one another against him, then verily, Allah is his Protector, and Jibril, and the righteous among the believers; and after that the angels are his helpers. Maybe his Lord, if he divorces you, will give him instead of you, wives better than you – submitting, believers, obedient, turning to Allah in repentance, worshipping Allah sincerely, Sa’ihat, previously married, and virgins.
Does not this verse prove that Hafsa & aysha-(ra) were not Submissive. They were not faithful. They were not obedient, They were not penitent. They were not adorers?
Always the understanding of quran by shia’s is really absurd!!
When Allah wants to warn someone of something, not because she/he has erred but just because of the sole reason, to make them aware of the consequences of doing certain act, Allah (swt) uses these kind of statements… And you will find many of these in Quran and they won’t necessarily be pointing out to the shortcomings of the ones being warned, just making them aware.
It is just as, in your religion, there is sahih (i believe) hadith in which imam (a.s) says, if you see our sayings going against Quran, then throw them on wall…. And by this Imam (a.s) never meant they DO NECESSARILY say things contradicting to Quran.
Mufti Shafi Usmani said:
The verse refutes the possible thought of the wives that if they are divorced, the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.W] will probably not get women better than themselves. The verse under comment responds to their assessment of the situation. It purports to say that nothing is beyond Allah’s power. If he divorces them, Allah will give him in exchange better wives than he has at the moment. This does not necessarily imply that there were better wives than the present holy wives at that time. Possibly such women were not available at that point of time, but, should the need have arisen, He could make other women better than they are. These verses specifically dealt with the holy wives of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.W], their deeds, their moral reform, their discipline and training. Similar injunctions are given in the verses that follow for the general body of Muslims and believers.

It does not say that, it just says they’ll be better but it doesn’t say that they were not faithful, submissive, obedient ect… and If I were to apply it would mean his wives weren’t virgins as stated at the end of the verse.
FOR EXAMPLE: the exact same logic used in these verses from chapter 69:44-47 which ALLAH reveled regarding prophet muhamad[pbuh] himself, so now you accuse prophet[pbuh] for this?!
وَلَوْ تَقَوَّلَ عَلَيْنَا بَعْضَ الاٌّقَاوِيلِ – لأَخَذْنَا مِنْهُ بِالْيَمِينِ – ثُمَّ لَقَطَعْنَا مِنْهُ الْوَتِينَ – فَمَا مِنكُم مِّنْ أَحَدٍ عَنْهُ حَـجِزِينَ
And if he had forged a false saying concerning Us, We surely would have seized him by his right hand, And then We certainly would have cut off Al-Watin from him, And none of you could have prevented it from him.
The matter of the fact is Allah called them the mothers of believers [ummul-mominin] and he knew what was their destiny and he knew what was in their hearts and this is why he said in chapter 33:52:
لاَّ يَحِلُّ لَكَ النِّسَآءُ مِن بَعْدُ وَلاَ أَن تَبَدَّلَ بِهِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكَ حُسْنُهُنَّ إِلاَّ مَا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ رَّقِيباً
It is not lawful for you (to marry other) women after this, nor to change them for other wives even though their beauty attracts you, except those whom your right hand possesses. And Allah is Ever a Watcher over all things.
Note: So he cannot change them as Allah knows they are a good match for him and they are on the right path and they will be his wives in Jannah as stated in the Sahih that ‘Aisha will be his wife in the after-life.
Let me ask you a question. Those people who accussed Aisha of adultery at the time – were they called kafir by the Prophet pbuh? What was their punishment?
Let it be clear that I have nothing to do with those who accuse Aisha of zinah, but your argument is flawed and excessive.
Allah said in surah Nur, ayah 12-17:
لَّوْلا إِذْ سَمِعْتُمُوهُ ظَنَّ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَـتُ بِأَنفُسِهِمْ خَيْراً وَقَالُواْ هَـذَآ إِفْكٌ مُّبِينٌ – لَّوْلاَ جَآءُو عَلَيْهِ بِأَرْبَعَةِ شُهَدَآءَ فَإِذْ لَمْ يَأْتُواْ بِالشُّهَدَآءِ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ عِندَ اللَّهِ هُمُ الْكَـذِبُونَ- وَلَوْلاَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ فِى الدُّنْيَا وَالاٌّخِرَةِ لَمَسَّكُمْ فِى مَآ أَفَضْتُمْ فِيهِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ – إِذْ تَلَقَّوْنَهُ بِأَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَتَقُولُونَ بِأَفْوَهِكُمْ مَّا لَّيْسَ لَكُمْ بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَتَحْسَبُونَهُ هَيِّناً وَهُوَ عِندَ اللَّهِ عَظِيمٌ – وَلَوْلا إِذْ سَمِعْتُمُوهُ قُلْتُمْ مَّا يَكُونُ لَنَآ أَن نَّتَكَلَّمَ بِهَـذَا سُبْحَـنَكَ هَـذَا بُهْتَـنٌ عَظِيمٌ – يَعِظُكُمُ اللَّهُ أَن تَعُودُواْ لِمِثْلِهِ أَبَداً إِن كُنتُمْ مُّؤْمِنِينَ – وَيُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الاٌّيَـتِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ
Why did not the believing men and the believing women, when you heard it, think well of their own people, and say: This is an evident falsehood? Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah. And were it not for Allah’s grace upon you and His mercy in this world and the hereafter, a grievous chastisement would certainly have touched you on account of the discourse which you entered into. When you received it with your tongues and spoke with your mouths what you had no knowledge of, and you deemed it an easy matter while with Allah it was grievous. And why did you not, when you heard it, say: It does not beseem us that we should talk of it; glory be to Thee! this is a great calumny? Allah admonishes you that you should not return to the like of it ever again if you are believers.
Note: Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) didn’t accuse them in disbelief, BUT ALLAH SAID THAT IF PERSON A BELIEVER HE SHOULD NOT BACK TO SUCH ACCUSATION AGAIN! So whoever after this verse would accuse them in zinah, he back to this accusation, and he is disbeliever.
