Once when Muhammad and his thugs were coming back from a qazvah ( plundering Banu Al Mustaliq tribe ) . Muhammad had chosen the best girl of them as his own slave , her name was “Juwayriyah bint Al-Haarith”( جويرية بنت الحارث ) first she was the share of Thaabit bin Qays bin Shammaas ( ثابت بن قيس بن شماس )or one of his cousins but she was so attractive that Muhammad could not let her go and he chose her for himself.Though he killed and enslaved all her family,burned her house and demolished everything that she had he raped her(he called that marriage!!!)during the journey back to Yathrib ( Medinah) , Muhammad was so fascinated with her beauty that he all forgot completely about Aisha during that journey.
It was a journey of several days and naturally the caravan made some stops at nights . The last night before they arrive Yathrib , Aisha made excuse that she was going to look for her necklace that she lost ,caravan left without Ayesha and she could not find the necklace!! . Muhammad was still so busy with his new captured slave( who was being raped by Muhammad during the whole journey ) , that he did not even notice that Aisha was gone until the day after.
There was a custom at that time that all caravan were followed by one person who looked for people or belongings which could have been left by the gone caravans.The responsible person in that journey was a handsome young man called Safwan bin Mu’attal( صفوان بن المعطل ) ( and Aisha knew about it ) .He found Aisha left there by her own and put her on his camel and rides toward Yathrib ( Medina) But he was one night behind the caravan so they had to spend a night together , alone in the desert , in the same tent .
The day after they caught up with the troop while both sitting on the same camel. Everyone knew at once that Aisha has spent a whole night with that handsome young man .Muhammad gets angry and Aisha goes to his father’s house for about a month.
Muhammad was deeply in love with Aisha so he had to do something about it.Great tension raised between Ansar and Muhajirun over this issue (that ended to some mass killing)
Muhammad asked allah for help and after about a month delay as usual allah was there to fulfil Muhammads sexual desires again.
Muhammad concocted a verse that order to prove adultery , there must be at least 4 male witnesses [ the same verse(4:15) that these days they use to justify the act od “rape” though adultry and rape are 2 different issues].
Everybody was talking about this incident but the blame went to these people:
(1) ” Abdullah b. Ubay ” ( عبد الله بن أبي بن سلول ) [ Tabari, Tafsir, Vol. 18, p. 89.// Ibn Hisham, ibid , Vol. 3, p. 311.]
(2) “Mistah b. Uthatha” ( مسطح بن أثاثة بن عباد بن المطلب )[ Ibn Hisham, ibid, Vol. 3, p. 311-312; Muslim, ibid, Vol. 8. p. 114; Tirmidhi, Sunan, Vol. 5, p. 332-333.]
(3) Hassan b. Thabit ( حسن ب . ثابت)
(4) Hamnah bint Jahsh( حمنة بنت جحش )
3 of them announced as the main source of so called rumor!(Mistah b. Uthatha, Hassan b. Thabit and Hamna bint Jahsh )though Allah mentioned ” this is a most serious slander! “( Nur 16 http://search-the-quran.com/search/Surah+An-Noor/8 ) , yet since Muhammad wanted to close the case ,his lousy decision and punishment for this “serious slander” was 80 lashes per person!!!)[Ibn Hisham, Vol. 3, p. 315; Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Musnad, Vol. 6, p. 35. ] case closed and Muhammad could take Aisha back to his bed.
