Imam al-Qurtubi is reported to have said regarding the Mother of Believers, `A’ishah رضي الله عنها, during the incident of the Ifk:

Maryam عليها السلام was proven innocent of any wrongdoing by a Prophet and infant (‘Isaa bin Maryam).

Yusuf عليه السلام was proven innocent of any wrongdoing by an infant (when the wife of the ‘Azeez tried to seduce him).

But `A’ishah رضي الله عنها was proven innocent not by a Prophet or an infant, but by Allah سبحانه وتعالى .
