33: Al-Ahzaab

Chapter: 33, Verse: 30 - Indecency by the wife of the Prophet!!

قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله بن غالب، عن عبد الرحمن بن أبي نجران، عن حماد، عن حريز، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) عن قول الله عز وجل: يا نِساءَ النَّبِيِّ مَنْ يَأْتِ مِنْكُنَّ بِفاحِشَةٍ مُبَيِّنَةٍ يُضاعَفْ لَهَا الْعَذابُ ضِعْفَيْنِ‏ ، قال: الفاحشة: الخروج بالسيف

Narrated Muhammad bin Ahmad, from Muhammad bin Abdullah bin Galib, from Abd al-Rahman bin Abi Najraan, from Hammad, from Hareez who said:

I asked Aba Abdillah Imam Sadiq (as) about the saying of Allah (swt), "O wives of the prophet! whoever of you commits an open indecency, the punishment shall be increased to her doubly" (33:30).

Imam (as) said, "al-Fahisha (indecency) is coming out with a sword". *

* This would refer to Ayesha coming to fight against Imam Ali (as)

محمد بن العباس، قال: حدثنا الحسين بن أحمد، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن كرام، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام)، قال: قال لي: أ تدري ما الفاحشة المبينة؟» قلت: لا. قال: قتال أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) يعني أهل الجمل

Narrated Mohammad bin al-Abbas, from al-Husain bin Ahmad, from Mohammad bin Ahmad, from Mohammad bin Isa, from Yunus, from Karam, from Mohammad bin Muslim, from Abi Abdillah Imam Sadiq (as):

Imam Sadiq (as) said, "Do you know what is "al-Fahisha al-Mubeenah - The open indecency"?

I (narrator) said (as), "No".

Imam Sadiq (as) said, "It is battle with Amir al-Momineen (as) meaning the people of Jamal."

Chapter: 33, Verse: 33 - AhlulBayt (as) the Purified ones

Fatema Zahra (ع) in conversation with Abu Bakr & Umar on the matter of Fadak said to them,

إن الذي يجيز على سيدة نساء أهل الجنة شهادة أو يقيم عليها حدا لملعون كافر بما أنزل الله على محمد صلى الله عليه وآله، لأن من (أذهب الله عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا) لا تجوز عليهم شهادة لأنهم معصومون من كل سوء مطهرون من كل فاحش

"The one who considers it permissible to ask the leader of the women of paradise to produce evidence or applies the legal punishment (Hadd) upon Her, surely he is cursed and a disbeliever (Kafir) of that which Allah (عز وجل) has revealed upon Mohammad (ص), because the one from whom Allah has kept uncleanness away from and purified them (33:33), it is not permissible to give testimony/evidence (shahadah) against them because they are infallible (Masoom) from all evil (Soo) and purified from all indecency (Fahash)"
