Following are some of the lessons that may be learnt from this hadith:7
* It is allowed for a man to travel with his wife.
* Men are allowed to serve women on such journeys.
* If a man is not a mahram8 of the woman, and he helps her climb onto her camel or into her vehicle, then he should not speak to her, unless it is necessary to do so. This can be deduced from the fact that the men who carried the howdah never addressed the woman they thought was in the howdah.
* A woman should veil herself from the gaze of strangers who are male, even though they may be pious and God-fearing.
* It is commendable for a husband to be kind and indulgent with his wife, living with her in an amiable fashion.
* The wife should not go to her parents' house without her husband's permission.
* It is recommended for a person to seek advice from his or her advisors, family, and friends.
It absolved ‘A’ishah (Ra) from all that she was accused of through this false rumour, and this exoneration was established through the verses of the Qur’an itself, which makes it most definitive and authoritative. Consequently, if any human being now doubts her, Allah forbid, he or she will become a non-believer, apostatising from the community of Muslims. Ibn ‘Abbas and others have said:
None of the wives of any of the Prophets (SM) has ever engaged in illicit sexual relations, and this is an honour that Allah, the Almighty, has granted all of them.
