`Ali: `A'ishah is the mother of believers (men & women)
« on: November 18, 2015, 04:54:44 AM »
`Ali's opinion on whether `A'ishah is the mother of all believers or just the mother of the men.

The chain:

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ، قال : حَدَّثَنَا زَائِدَةُ ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ قَيْسٍ ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ وَهْبٍ ، قَالَ

[We were told by Ahmad bin `Abdullah, he said: Za'idah told us, from `Amro bin Qays, from Zayd bin Wahb, he said (etc...)]

Ahmad bin `Abdullah bin Yunus: Thiqah Hafiz.
Za'idah bin Qudamah: Thiqah Thabt.
`Umar bin Qays: Thiqah.
Zayd bin Wahb: Thiqah.

The relevant part:

فَلَمْ يَكُنْ قِتَالُهُمْ إِلَّا تِلْكَ الْعَشِيَّةَ وَحْدَهَا , فَجَاءُوا بِالْغَدِ يُكَلِّمُونَ عَلِيًّا فِي الْغَنِيمَةِ فَقَرَأَ عَلِيٌّ هَذِهِ الْآيَةُ , فَقَالَ : " أَمَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ : وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا غَنِمْتُمْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ فَأَنَّ لِلَّهِ خُمُسَهُ وَلِلرَّسُولِ سورة الأنفال آية 41 أَيُّكُمْ لِعَائِشَةَ ؟ " فَقَالُوا : سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ , أُمُّنَا , فَقَالَ : " أَحَرَامٌ هِيَ ؟ " قَالُوا : نَعَمْ , قَالَ عَلِيٌّ : " فَإِنَّهُ يَحْرُمُ مِنْ بَنَاتِهَا مَا يَحْرُمُ مِنْهَا

[(etc...) Their battle lasted only that night, then on the next day they (the soldiers) came to ask `Ali for their share of the booty so `Ali recited to them: {Know that, whatever booty you take, the fifth of it is God's, and the Messenger's} [8:41] `Ali then told them: "Who shall take `A'ishah?" (meaning as part of their share) They responded: "Glory be to Allah, our mother!?" He replied: "Why not, is she forbidden?" They said: "Yes!" `Ali said to them: "If she is forbidden for you then so are her daughters!" (...etc)]

Source: Musannaf ibn abi Shaybah, kitab-ul-Jamal.

Point is, `Ali prohibited his men from taking any of the spoils of war in the battle of al-Jamal since the opponents were Muslims, so when a group of his men asked for their shares from war, he replied in an intelligent way and showed them that they cannot claim their own mother `A'ishah and therefore they cannot claim any of her daughters (Muslim women).

Enjoy the slap.

عَلامَةُ أَهْلِ الْبِدَعِ الْوَقِيعَةُ فِي أَهْلِ الأَثَرِ. وَعَلامَةُ الْجَهْمِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُشَبِّهَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الْقَدَرِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُجَبِّرَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الزَّنَادِقَةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ الأَثَرِ حَشْوِيَّةً

Religion = simple & clear
