The Statement of Allah the Most High: If you two (wives of the Prophet, namely, Aishah and Hafsa) turn in repentance to Allah, (it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes). (V.66:4)

Hadith Number 4915


Narrated Ibn `Abbas

I intended to ask `Umar about those two ladies who back each other against 'Allah's Messenger (ﷺ). For one year I was seeking the opportunity to ask this question, but in vain, until once when I accompanied him for Hajj. While we were in Zahran, `Umar went to answer the call of nature and told me to follow him with some water for ablution. So I followed him with a container of water and started pouring water for him. I found it a good opportunity to ask him, so I said, "O chief of the Believers! Who were those two ladies who had backed each other (against the Prophet)?" Before I could complete my question, he replied, "They were `Aisha and Hafsa."
