al-Salamu `Aleykum,

Often the Shia slander `Aisha (ra) by attributing bad acts to her, their big scholar ibn al-Mutahhar al-Helli responds to some questions in his book “Ajwibat al-Masa’el al-Muhana’iyyah” ” أجوبة المسائل المهنائية” pg121-122, issue #14:

He was asked:
“ما يقول سيدنا في قصة الإفك والآيات التي نزلت ببراءة المقذوفة ، هل ذلك عند أصحابنا كان في عائشة أم نقلوا أن ذلك كان في غيرها من زوجات النبي صلى اللَّه عليه وآله”

“What does our Master(Sayyid) say about the story of Ifk and the verses that were revealed to prove the innocence of the woman? do our companions(Shia) consider them to be revealed regarding `Aisha, or did they report that it was aimed at another wife of the Prophet (SAWS)?”

He answered:
“ما عرفت لأحد من العلماء خلافا في أن المراد بها عائشة”

“I do not know of any scholar who disagrees about them being revealed regarding `Aisha.”

Then he was asked:
“ما يقول سيدنا في عصمة نساء الأنبياء عليهم السلام ، هل هي واجبة في حقهن فلا يجوز ذلك عليهن أم يجوز ذلك ولم يقع منهن ، إذ لو كان لا يجوز عليهن لكان رسول اللَّه صلى اللَّه عليه وآله لما قذفت زوجته أخبر بأن ذلك لا يجوز عليها ، ولكنه عليه السلام بقي أياما والناس يخوضون في ذلك حتى نزل الوحي ببراءتها”

“What does our Master(Sayyid) say about the infallibility of the wives of the Prophets (SAWS)? is it necessary for them so it’s not possible for them to do it (Zinah)? or is it that they aren’t infallible but they never did it (Zinah)? because if it wasn’t possible then the prophet (SAWS) would have told the ones who accused her of it that it wasn’t possible, instead he (SAWS) waited for days while people talked about it until Allah revealed the verses to prove her innocence.”

He answered:
” لم يشترط أحد من العلماء عصمة النساء اللواتي للأنبياء عليهم السلام عن الزنا ، لكن اللائق بعصمة النبوة نزاهتهن عن ذلك وسلامتهن منه ، ولم يقع من واحدة منهن ذلك “

“None of the scholars placed the infallibility of the wives of the Prophets from Zinah as a condition, but what is fitting for the infallibility of Prophethood is that their wives are elevated above such matters and none of them committed such acts.”

Salam Aleykum,
