After complaining, Muhammed's third wife called Islamophobe by tenth wife.

When Aisha bint Abu Bakr, complained about their living conditions, she was called an Islamophobe by Muhammed's tenth wife, Ramla bint Abi Sufyan.

The only thing that you have to remember is that when you have eleven wives, complaining will only relegate you down the list and leave you doing menial chores like washing the livestock, or servicing last. This is what Ramla bint Abi Sufyan had in mind when she spoke out against Aisha bint Abu Bakr.

"She thinks she's all special because she is young and pretty, and I'm a ghastly nineteen years-old. Well, she's got another thing coming." said Ramla bint Abi Sufyan.

The two wives were to settle their argument with an arena match, but Aisha bint Abu Bakr was worried that she may be pregnant with Muhammed's twelfth wife, so they postponed it until further notice.
