This incident led to some bitterness between Ayesha and Ali. Ali had not levied any charge against Ayesha. He only said in a casual way that she could be divorced even if she was innocent. The grievance of Ayesha was that Ali should have defended her like Umar. The Holy Prophet had great love for Ayesha and that became a matter of some jealousy with others. It appears that even Fatima had some grouse on this account. The Holy Prophet offered her the advice: "If your father loves a person, why should you not love that person as well."
