Lessons learned from the Companions – Ayesha and the Battle for Basrah!

Over six hundred persons belonging to Basra or the neighboring tribes were executed or killed as the Qasas” for the blood of Othman. Supreme authority vested in Ayesha, and Talha and Zubair acted as her Ministers. The Baitul-Mal was seized, and the men of the pro-confederate group who had suffered loss of life or property were duly compensated. Ayesha wrote a letter to Muawiyah in Syria informing him how she and her men had taken vengeance for the blood of Othman. He was advised to undertake campaigns on similar lines to take vengeance for the blood of Othman.
