Assalamu-Alaikum and Greetings !
The article today covers one of the popular stories from the time of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) when his wife and the Muslims’ mother of believers, Ayesha (RA) was falsely accused of a slander. That was a time of great hardship for the prophet, Ayesha and their families. However, we also know that no one but Allah finally vindicated Ayesha (RA) from that ordeal and the false accusation that was levied against her. Some of the Quran verses revealed in Surah Noor were specifically in reference to that false accusation and slander.
The article below covers that story and the various lessons that we can learn from that incident including the need to avoid conversations and whispers that can lead to rumors and spread of false stories. Unfortunately, it’s a common problem within various social circles where people talk about other people without sound facts thus leading to rumors and false accusations. From this story, we see how the hypocrites of the time participated in the spread of such falsehood and the consequences of such ill behaviors.
Let’s learn the many lessons from this story and ensure that we share with others as well to rid our societies of such evils.
