The Prophet Peace be upon him got down from his stand and called Ali Bin Abi Taleb and Osama Bin Zaid May Allah be pleased with them in order to consult them.
Osama spoke good and said: O Prophet of Allah, She is your wife and we know nothing but good about them and these rumors are lies and false. Ali said: O Prophet of Allah, women are many, you can marry again, and you can ask her maid, she will not lie. The Prophet Peace be upon him called Brira (the maid) and asked her about the matter. Ali has beaten her severely while saying: speak the truth to the Prophet! The maid was saying: I swear by Allah that I know nothing but good about 'A'isha except that when I knead the dough I tell her to take care of it, but she sleeps and forgets it, so the sheep comes and eat it! Then 'A'isha said: the Prophet Peace be upon him entered to my room while my parents were with me. There was also a woman from Al-Ansar (People who supported the Prophet) crying with me.
The Prophet Peace be upon him sat down, praised Allah then said: O 'A'isha, you knew what the people are saying, be pious, and if you committed any thing of what is said by the people just repent to Allah. Allah will accept the repentance. Hearing that, I did not find any tears in my eyes (out of my astonishment of the speech of the Prophet) and expected that my parents will answer on my behalf but they did not do so. I was thinking that the Prophet Peace be upon him will see a dream proving my innocence but I did not expect that my rank is high to the degree that Allah Almighty will reveal a verse proving my innocence. I told my parents: Can't you answer the Prophet of Allah? They replied: We do not know what to say. The matter was very difficult for Abu Bakr family.
