Abdullah bin Ubai (leader of the hypocrites) slanders Aisha bint Bakr (R.A.) in The Incident Of Ifk. Aisha bint Abi Bakr (R.A.), who was marching from Banu Mustaliq, was not present in her tent. She had gone to look for the necklace that she had lost (which was given her by her Mother).

Aisha (R.A.), when she saw that the army convoy had vanished, stayed put and waited for someone to come back.
She fell asleep at night. Safwan ibn al-Muattal (R.A.) found her the next morning. He always stayed behind army to check for any left and then took the items to the army.
