Ruhullah Al-Khumaini writes:
وأما سائر الطوائف من النصاب بل الخوارج فلا دليل على نجاستهم وإن كانوا أشد عذابا من الكفار، فلو خرج سلطان على أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام لا بعنوان التدين بل للمعارضة في الملك أو غرض آخر كعائشة وزبير وطلحة ومعاوية وأشباههم أو نصب أحد عداوة له أو لأحد من الأئمة عليهم السلام لا بعنوان التدين بل لعداوة قريش أو بني هاشم أو العرب أو لأجل كونه قاتل ولده أو أبيه أو غير ذلك لا يوجب ظاهرا شيء منها نجاسة ظاهرية. وإن كانوا أخبث من الكلاب والخنازير لعدم دليل من إجماع أو أخبار عليه

“As for the groups among the enemies (nawasib) of the people of the house – and much more likely even those who have exited (khawarij) – there is no proof of their uncleanness (najasah), even though they receive the most severe punishment from the disbelievers (kuffar). If a ruler were to go to war against the commander of the believers (a.) – not for religious reasons, but for worldly domination or any other reason – as A’ishah, Zubair, Talhah, Mu’awiyah and those of their own kind did, or enmity against him or any other of the Imams (a. ) – and not for religious reasons, but out of enmity with the Quraish or with the children of Hashim or with the Arabs or because of the killing of their child or father or anything else besides – then this would not result in impurity (Najasah) superficially (Zahir), although they are worse than dogs and pigs, for lack of consensus or tradition about it.” [Kitab-ut-Taharah, Volume 3, Page 457]


One response to “Al-Khumaini about A’ishah”

  1. […] about the honor of A’ishah – – Al-Majlisi about the age at which A’ishah got married – – Al-Khumaini about A’ishah – – A’ishah was not happy until the Prophet was unhappy […]
