Some lessons of the historical events

In the Battle of Badr, the Muslims achieved a resounding victory. But in the Battle of Uhud, the story was quite different. What could be the divine wisdom in allowing the Muslims to suffer so much in the Battle of Uhud?
The siege of Madinah during the Battle of The Trench lasted nearly 25 days. Eventually the enemies were defeated without the Muslims having to fight an actual battle. What could be the divine wisdom in making the siege last so long? What lesson do we learn from this battle?
Abdullah Ibn Ubayy was a notorious hypocrite who worked his entire life to damage Islam. On several occasions, ‘Umar ibh Al-Khattab wanted to kill him. Even Ubayy’s son sought Rasulullah’s (S) permission to kill his own father. However, Rasulullah (S) did not give him permission. Why not?
The slander against ‘A’ishah continued unabated for nearly a month, causing distress to Rasulullah (S) and his family. A divine revelation declaring ‘A’ishah’s innocence was finally sent after one month. What was the divine wisdom in delaying the revelation?
The Expedition to Tabuk ended without a battle. Allah could have informed Rasulullah (S) that the Byzantines would not show up for the battle. This would have saved the Muslims from tremendous distress during their journey to Tabuk in the hot summer months. What was the divine wisdom behind this expedition?
After the Battle of Badr, Rasulullah (S) released the prisoners of war prior to receiving divine permission for such an action. What could be the divine wisdom in not sending permission before Rasulullah’s (S) action?
