Talhah and Zubair pledged allegiance to Ali ibn Abi Talib on the condition that he find and punish those responsible for murdering Uthman. But after several months, not much progress had been made.
In fact, many of those who were known opponents of Uthman, were now working with Ali. Because of this, many of the influential companions did support him.
One of those who did not support Ali was the Prophet's widow, Aisha. She had cobbled together a force with the intention of punishing Uthman's killers. Talhah and Zubair joined her, and before long, Aisha had almost 3000 men under her command.
But things quickly spiraled out of hand and Aisha found herself facing off against Ali ibn Abi Talib. This monumental battle would go down in history as one the most damaging and significant in Islamic history.
