Narrated Um Ruman:

Who was 'Aisha's mother: While I was with 'Aisha, 'Aisha got fever, whereupon the Prophet ﷺ said, "Probably her fever is caused by the story related by the people (about her)." I said, "Yes." Then 'Aisha sat up and said, "My example and your example is similar to that of Jacob and his sons:--'Nay, but your minds have made up a tale. So (for me) patience is most fitting. It is Allah (alone) Whose help can be sought against that which you assert.' (12.18)
