All Sahaba were human and thus fallible to human weaknesses. Ali RA who is revered by all muslims but sometimes placed in an unnaturally high position by Shias was just as fallible as any other human being.
At one point he threatened the peace of his home by considering marrying someone hostile to Fatima R.A. and Prophet Muhammad pbuh. It is one of the only known times that Prophet Muhammad pbuh reprimanded a Sahabi from the pulpit…… Here is the rest of the article:
Keeping The Religion Pure
Some Shias claim that Ali, r.a., could commit no Wrong and was superior to all Sahaba, r.a.
We Muslims take ONLY Muhammad, pbuh, as the perfect Example. Not Ali, r.a. nor any other human being. Here is one reason.
Ali, r.a., was a great Muslim as were other sahaba, r.a. They were all humans and with their greatness they had imperfections. Only angels have no faults.
For Ali, r.a., it is well known that he did not treat Fatima, r.a., well. He even wanted to bring an enemy of Islam, Abu Jahal’s daughter, into the community of Islam as his wife. That would have been a disaster for the community.
Fatima, r.a. complained to the Prophet, pbuh. Coming from such a gentle woman, those were harsh words she used for Ali, r.a. . She called him “This Ali….”
Here is the reprimand of Ali by the Prophet, pbuh.. I will select only one narrative. A scholar can surely find others:
” The Prophet, pbuh, said from the mimbar of the masjid:: “The People of Hisham ibn Mughira have asked my permission to marry their daughter to Ali ibn Abi Talib. I DO NOT PERMIT IT. AGAIN, I DO NOT PERMIT IT. and AGAIN I DO NOT PERMIT IT. Of course, if Ali divorces my daughter and marries their daughter, he has the right. My daughter is part of myself. Whoever harms her, harms me. Whatever hurts her hurts me.” [Sahih Bukhari, kitab-un-nikah]
Thus Ali, r.a., was reprimanded THREE TIMES, in one speech by the Prophet, pbuh, and that too from the mimbar of the mosque. He did not reprimand any other sahabi like that.
So, I say to Ismailis and extremist Shias: Remember, we are followers of ALLAH, not of Ali.
Our leader is MUHAMMAD, pbuh, not Ali.
Keep Ali, r.a. within his human limits and respect him as such as a Sahabi.
Why TALAQ is easy but KHULA is almost impossible in the Muslim society?
SHARIAH on the disintegrating family life is stagnant in most muslim societies where women are ignorant and few men in the family law system have manipulated the word of Allah and His Rasool to suit their personal, present needs in this dunya without fear or repercussions of the Hereafter.
|A report from Saudi Arabia.|
Justice is enjoined to us in every walk of life and specifically with those we love. Here Prophet Muhammad PBUH emphasizes the importance of justice among your children:
Narrated ‘Amir: I heard An-Nu’man bin Bashir on the pulpit saying, “My father gave me a gift but ‘Amra bint Rawaha (my mother) said that she would not agree to it unless he made Allah’s Apostle as a witness to it. So, my father went to Allah’s Apostle and said, ‘I have given a gift to my son from ‘Amra bint Rawaha, but she ordered me to make you as a witness to it, O Allah’s Apostle!’ Allah’s Apostle asked, ‘Have you given (the like of it) to everyone of your sons?’ He replied in the negative. Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Be afraid of Allah, and be just to your children.’ My father then returned and took back his gift.”
The Family As The Nucleus Of The Islamic Civilization: It is essential to gain a perspective of the stature of the family in Islam and how does a healthy family evolve in society.
Islam is quite clear on the issue of sexuality in all of creation. Here are some questions that need reflection:
i. Does Islam extols celibacy as Christianity did?
ii. Does Islam see created beings as singles, each fulfilling itself in itself?
iii. Does Islam see the male principle of life or the female principle of life? as dominant in existence
iv. Does Islam see the male and the female coming together to fulfill themselves and incomplete without each other?
The Quran indicates that the first three parts of this question must be answered with a resounding “no”.
The Islamic worldview is that of couples, not singles. Allah’s view
of the universe, as part of Allah’s process of creation, is described in these
words in the Quran:
And of everything we have created pairs (zaujain) that ye may reflect. (51:49)
That it is He who granted Death and Life; that He did create in pairs
(zaujain)—male and female. (53:45)
And have We not created you in pairs? (78:8)
And the earth, We have spread it out, and set thereon
mountains standing firm, and produced therein every
kind of beautiful growth (in pairs) (zaujain baheej). (50:7)
–you see the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour
down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts
forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs). (22:5)
Glory to Him Who created in sexual pairs (al-Azwaj) all
things that the earth produces, as well as their own
(human) kind and (other) things of which they have no
The Arabic word used for pairs in these verses, zaujain, means
sexual couples, and these couples are mentioned in the verses
quoted as signs of Allah. The first verse urges us to reflect on this
phenomenon of creation in pairs so that we might get some notion
of the harmony and peace which is Islam.
The rebirth of the seemingly dead earth (sura 22) after Allah sends rain is
also one of the indications of the happenings, which will occur on Judgment Day
(Yom al-Qiyamah). Thus, the mention of the creation in pairs is linked, in the
Quran, to the mention of the basic beliefs of Islam—that Allah alone is the
Creator and the Nourisher and that we come from Allah and will return to Allah.
The final verse, from sura 36, helps us to realize that along
with vegetable and human life, there may be other forms or beings alive, of whom
we do not know, who have also been created in pairs
In his commentary on some of these verses, Imam Razi points out that one begins
to understand reality by looking at the “marriage” of opposites. In fact,
underlying the principle of harmony is the coming together of different
principles of being. The day is completed by the night, labor by rest, the
world by the hereafter, the male by the female, the man by the woman (or woman
It is this mutuality and completeness, which is essential to Islamic existence.
In this way of life there is no war of sexes, no dominance of one gender by the other. In this context, singleness or celibacy is deplorable and leads to serious problems while (as a general rule) marriage under Islamic principle is fruitful and makes existence complete.
Children must have the care and love of both a father and a mother to be complete human beings; otherwise their psyche is fragmented and their vision of the world is distorted.
Hence, marriage must be based on such solid foundations that divorce or separation does not take place or are very rare.
A society where marriage takes place not between a man and a woman but between the wealth and power of two families is an unislamic society.
Similarly unislamic is a society where marriages are temporary phenomena, based not on the holy sexuality of complete acceptance but on the triviality of physical thrills and the desire to exploit, enjoy, and destroy, and then pass on to someone else.
A review of Hadith and the age of Aisha (RA ) at the time of marriage to RasoolAllah pbuh.
There is no Hadith about the age of Ayesha,r,a.
Lack of knowledge leads to defense of non-issues
In 1986 I wrote an article which showed that the narrative about the age of the wife of the Prophet, pbuh, Ayesha Siddiqa, r.a., which is published in Imam Bukhari’s Sahih, is contradicted by many other narratives in books of hadith.
It was the first article in English on the subject in America and was well liked by people who wanted to contradict the attacks of the Perwaizi sect and answer the abuse by neo-cons like General Boykin and Spencer.
Many people published my article, often with minor changes, but without noting that they had gotten it from me, thus contradicting the first rule of Hadith that you must give your source.
As I have continued my hadith studies, I have found that there is NO hadith from the Prophet, pbuh, giving the age of Ayesha, r.a., when he married her.
Bukhari himself does not say that the narrative in his book about her age is from the Prophet, pbuh. His book has so much prestige that we took it or granted that whatever is in his book must be from the Prophet, pbuh. It is not and he does not say it is.
A hadith of the Prophet, pbuh, is about what he said, did or approved of or is about his qualities..  None of these three aspects relate to the narrative about the age of Ayesha, r.a.
Even a hadith which is from the Prophet, pbuh, but is not narrated by a sahabi [Companion of the Prophet, pbuh] but is from a taba’i, [generation after the Sahaba], is called MURSAL and lacks authenticity and does not have HUJJAT [religious acceptability] in Islam.. The only exceptions are Taba’i narrators who had met numerous sahaba. 
What is important about Ayesha, r.a. is that the Prophet, pbuh, loved her and died in her arms. She was a scholar, teacher, faqih, leader, orator, fighter and pious beyond all requirements. The verses of the Qur’an which defend her and reveal Islamic laws owing to her actions, show that she was a person of great mental and spiritual maturity.
The issue of her age is meant to trivialize her significance.
We fell into the trap.
The Mother of the Believers needs no defense.
May Allah forgive our sins and shortcomings.

Modern scholars agree. See See Khalil-ur-Rahman Chishti’s Hadith ki ahmiat awr zaroorat, [Urdu], published in 1420 H.
 “Dying became easier for me when I was shown Ayesha in paradise. It was as if I could see her hands.” [Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, narrated by Ishaq bin Talha, in Tabqat al-Kubra, biographical collection of Hadith compiled by ibn Sa’ad in 230 Hijri.]
