There a number of responses to this:
يد من هذه أحرقها الله بالنار فقال أي أخية في الدنيا قبل الآخرة فقالت في الدنيا قبل الآخرة فأحرق بالنار بمصر
Whose hand is this? May Allah burn it with fire.
He said, “O sister, in the world before the Hereafter.”
She responded, “In the world, before the Hereafter.”
Consequently, it was burnt with fire in Egypt.
All these incidents make it apparent to the believer the kindness of Allah and His plan with Rasulullah’s salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam wife. Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala protected her to the extent that not even a non-mahram touched her.
One of the tyrant kings wished to touch Hajar, the wife of Nabi Ibrahim ‘alayh al Salam, but his hand was brutally seized with paralysis. This happened thrice. And at the end, he did not touch her. So when this happened to the wife of Sayyidina Ibrahim ‘alayh al Salam, then what about the wife of the noblest and most superior of creation Muhammad salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam? This unveils the falsehood of every slander levelled at the chastity of the exonerated Umm al Mu’minin Sayyidah Aisha radiya Llahu ‘anha.
