Ruling on the One Who Speaks Ill Of the Wives of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

aishabintabibakr:

Question:
There is an individual at (my) job who is a Raafidhee. Some of the workers informed me that he has explicitly accused the Mother of the Believers Aa’ishah (radiyallahu ‘anhaa) of fornication (and the refuge is with Allaah). Knowing that he did not do that in public and there has not occurred between me and him a debate regarding the issue, is it permissible for me to classify him with kufr (disbelief) by my saying: You are a Kaafir (disbeliever) because you hold this belief or is it a must that I sit with him and debate with him regarding the issue knowing that he openly displays (the qualities of) hypocrisy and lying; and is it permissible to sit with him inside or outside of work even when the issue does not arise? Please give us a verdict, may Allaah reward you.

Answer:
I say, whoever explicitly accuses the Mother of the Believers Aa’ishah the daughter of as-Siddeeq (radiyallaahu ‘anhumaa), the one who Allaah has vindicated from above the seven heavens and has sent down her vindication in verses which are recited until the Day of Judgment; whoever does that then he has disbelieved with a kufr that expels him from the religion, and he is bound to spend eternity in the fire. Because he has belied Allaah (azza wa Jal) in His informing of her vindication. Al-Qurtubee has mentioned that in his Tafseer from Maalik. Ibn Katheer, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said in his Tafseer of the verse:

"Verily those who accuse chaste women who never even think of anything touching their chastity and are good believers, then they are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter, and for them will be a great torment. On the Day when their tongues, hands and legs will testify against them as to what they used to do."

(Sooratun-Noor, 24:23-24)

He, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: This is a threat from Allaah the Exalted to those who accuse chaste women who never think of anything touching their chastity and are believers, being all inclusive. Therefore, the Mothers of the Believers are even more entitled to enter into this than every other chaste woman. Especially she who was the reason for the revelation of this verse, that is Aa’ishah the daughter of as-Siddeeq. The scholars, may Allaah have mercy upon them, are in total agreement that whoever reviles her and accuses her with that which he has accused her with after that which has been mentioned in the verse, then he is a Kaafir; because he rejects the Qur’aan. Regarding the other Mothers of the Believers there are two sayings (amongst the scholars). The most correct of them is that they are similar to her (in this ruling), and Allaah knows best

And upon this, there is consensus that whoever reviles Aa’ishah (radiyallahu ‘anhaa) (accusing) her with fornication after Allaah has vindicated her from it in His Book, then he is a Kaafir whose blood and wealth are permissible, and it is obligatory that he be killed (by those in judicial authority).

Shyakhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said in his book, as-Saarim al-Maslool Alaa Shaatimir-Rasool (sallaallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) Pg. 565-567: Chapter: Reviling the Wives of the Prophet:

"Al-Qaadee Abu Ya’laa, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: Whoever wrongfully accuses Aa’ishah of az-Zinaa (fornication) after Allaah has vindicated her from it has disbelieved with there being no difference of opinion concerning this.”

More than one of the scholars have reported the consensus upon this and more than one of the Imaams has explicitly stated this ruling. It has been narrated from Maalik:

"Whoever reviles Abu Bakr is to be lashed and whoever reviles Aa’ishah, accusing her with that which Allaah has vindicated her from then he is killed; for he has opposed the Quraan:

'Allaah forbids you from it and warns you not to repeat it if you are indeed believers.'(Sooratun-Noor, 24:17)”

Aboo Bakr ibn Ziyaad an-Naysaabooree said: I heard al-Qaasim ibn Muhammad saying to Ismaa’eel ibn Is-haaq:

"Al-Ma’moom came with two men bound in chains. One of them had cursed Faatimah and the other had cursed Aa’ishah. So he commanded with the killing of the one who had cursed Faatimah and he left the other. So Isma’eel said to him: What is their ruling except that they both are to be killed? For the one who has cursed Aa’ishah has rejected the Quraan. And upon this is the history of the people of Fiqh and knowledge from the Ahlul-Bayt and other than them."

The Honour & Virtue of Khadijah bint Khuwaylid (رضي الله عنها)

The death of Khadijah left an indelible mark in the heart of the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ). She was always remembered by him and her name was always on his tongue. He loved those who loved her and he honored those who honored her.

Ā’ishah (رضي الله عنها) said:

"Allāh’s Messenger mentioned Khadijah one day and I said something about her. I said: ‘Such and such old woman! Allāh has replaced her for you with someone better!’

He (ﷺ) said ‘Allāh has not replaced her for me with someone better. She believed in me when the rest of people disbelieved. She gave me a share in hear wealth when the rest of the people denied me (theirs). Allāh provided me children from her while He denied me by other than her.’

I said, ‘I shall not blame you regarding her after today [1]’”

Khadijah (رضي الله عنها) — The Patient

The Mother of the Believers set an example of patience and she earned by that resounding success in the very first steps toward advancing the prophetic message. The Prophet (ﷺ) never heard anything detesting to him from rejected and belying that grieved him except that he was consoled by her.

When the Prophet (ﷺ) came out with his call in the open, the Quraish excommunicated Banu Hashim. The crisis came to a head and the effects of the banishment became fatal. Affairs degenerated between the message of Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ) and the oppression of idolatry personified by the aristocrats of the Quraish. Their intellect became befuddled in their empty heads except for injustice, oppression and subjugation of the weak. Their idle minds shuddered except for corruption and idol worshipping. However, the Muslims exercised graceful patience.

Khadijah remained solidly behind the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ), girding his loins and sharing with him in bearing the harm of his people with patience and equanimity in expectation of reward until Allāh implemented His Decree on this oppressive and persistent boycot which was fatal for the believers who were under siege.

When the siege ceased, At Tāhirah (Khadijah) came out triumphantly with the fruits of her patience, prosecuting with the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ), her journey through life as a faithful wife.

Sayyidah Khadijah spent close to the quarter of a century under the shadow of Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ). Throughout her stay with him, she discharged her obligation as a righteous wife to her husband. She shared with him his moments of joy, caring for his pleasures and happiness and devoted to what brings life to them.

It is clear from her generosity that when the people were afflicted with a period of drought after her marriage of Allāh’s Messenger (ﷺ), Sayyidah Halīmāh As-Sa’diyyah, foster mother of the Prophet (ﷺ) visited. She went back with the camels loaded with water and forty heads of goat from the wealth of Khadijah.

The Farewell

After she came out of the blockade, Khadijah lived for only a little while before she answered the call of her lord. Her pure soul soared to the heavens well-pleasing and well-pleased unto Allāh.

Urwah said:

"She died three years before the hijrah and she was buried at Hajūn”

True is the statement of the one who said:

"If women were like the one we missed [Khadijah], women would have been given preference above men."

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) Said About Khadeejah (رضي الله عنه)

darutawheed:

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said about The mother of the believers, Khadeejah (رضي الله عنه);

‘She believed in me while the people disbelieved in me. And she trusted in me while the people belied me. And she helped and comforted me in person and in wealth when the people would not. Allah provided me with children by her, and He did not with others.’

(Musnad Imam Ahmad 6/118)

Virtues of Khadijah bint Khuwaylid (رضي الله عنها) — Part 2

In it recorded in Sahīh Muslim from Ā’ishah that the Prophet (ﷺ) used to slaughter sheep and he would say:

"Send it to the friends of Khadijah." So I mentioned this action of his to him one day and he said: "I love those whom she loved."

Do you find any faithfulness that is better than this? Certainly life can’t be more beautiful than the one spent under the shade of Islām but most men do not realize (this).
