Abstract

In order to understand the political behavior of individuals, the content of letters in historical sources is of special importance. Using an analytical-comparative method this paper seeks to evaluate the letters of Aisha, the wife of the Messenger of God (PBUH), during the caliphate of Imam Ali the Commander of the Faithful (PBUH), as well as the letters sent to her to be compared to her actions. The main question of this research is to what extent these letters can be effective in presenting Aisha's political behavior? and whether the themes and claims of Aisha's letters are consistent with her political performance? The findings show that Aisha's claims, such as following the truth, reforming the affairs of the nation, taking revenge on the killers of Uthman, people's demand for taking revenge on the killers of Uthman and the usurpation of the Caliphate by Imam Ali the Commander of the Faithful (PBUH), not only do not correspond to reality, but also contradict it. 

Keywords: studying the political behavior, Aisha's political behavior, taking revenge on the killers of Uthman, opponents of Imam Ali the Commander of the Faithful (PBUH).
