Blessing in Disguise

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ جَاءُوا بِالْإِفْكِ عُصْبَةٌ مِّنكُمْ ۚ لَا تَحْسَبُوهُ شَرًّا لَّكُم ۖ بَلْ هُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ

“Indeed those who spread the slander are a group from amongst you.
Do not think that it is bad for you, rather it is good for you…”

(Surah An-Nur 24:11)


The story of the slander against our mother Ayesha Bint Abi Bakr is a powerful and moving story which contains many important lessons.

When Allah revealed these verses in Surah Nur to clarify her innocence, not only did it clarify her innocence and forever raise her status to “Al-Mutabarri’u Fee Kitaabillah” (The one whose innocence is declared in the book of Allah) but it taught us important lessons like thinking good of others, ignoring rumors and the evil of slander.

This entire passage deserves to be studied in details as the lessons contained herein are very relevant to our times.

However, one verse from this passage really struck me and it is the one I quoted above. Allah informs the prophet (peace be upon him) and Ayesha in this verse that even though the slander seemed like a very bad thing, it was actually good for them.

Through this slander, their relationship got closer, her Taqwa reached a higher level and her status in this Ummah reached an amazingly high level.

Thus, an event which caused them so much grief ended up being one of the biggest blessings to her. We can all learn from this the same lesson which we learned from the story of Musa and Khidr, that when Allah allows bad things to happen to us, there is always some good in it even if we can’t see it.

This lesson is repeated multiple times in the Qur’an and this story is one powerful proof of it.
