Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith - 4.603

Narrated Urwa

I asked 'Aisha the wife of the Prophet about the meaning of the following verse: "(Respite will be granted) until when the apostles give up hope (of their people) and thought that they were denied (by their people)..."(12.110) 'Aisha replied, "Really, their nations did not believe them." I said, "By Allah! They were definite that their nations treated them as liars and it was not a matter of suspecting." 'Aisha said, "O 'Uraiya (i.e. 'Urwa)! No doubt, they were quite sure about it."

I said, "May the verse be read in such a way as to mean that the apostles thought that Allah did not help them?" 'Aisha said, "Allah forbid! (Impossible.) The Apostles did not suspect their Lord of such a thing. But this verse is concerned with the Apostles' followers who had faith in their Lord and believed in their apostles and their period of trials was long and Allah's help was delayed till the apostles gave up hope for the conversion of the disbelievers amongst their nation and suspected that even their followers were shaken in their belief, Allah's help then came to them." Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "The honorable, the son of the honorable, the son of the honorable, (was) Joseph, the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham."
