Allegation made by the Shia

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I read somewhere that the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) threatened his wives to divorce and Hazrat Aisha (RA) is threatened many times with divorce in Quran. By threaten, I mean in a very severe manner. Is this true? Or is it a malicious allegation by Shia?


A: This is not true.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
