Title: Did Aisha and Muawiyah both give their pledge of allegiance to Imam Ali?

Salam,

Did Did Aisha and Muawiyah both immediately give their pledge of allegiance to Imam Ali or was there some reluctance? Specifically when the battle of Jamal was going on, why did they not obey Imam Ali as their caliph? Is it because they were yet to give their pledge?

Not too sure myself but according to this (https://islam.stackexchange.com/a/2411), The fighting was instigated by the Sab'iyyah and it was not intended by Aisha or Ali. There is also the shia view below.
