The Wives of Prophet Muhammad.

Here are the names of the prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) wives and their stories.
1-Khadijah bint Khuwaylid: Khadijah was the first wife of the prophet. The prophet Muhammed was her business representative at first, but Khadijah eventually saw him as a good husband and they married.

When they married, the prophet was 25 years old and Khadijah was 40 years old. They had six children, two of whom died when they were young. She was the prophet’s support and encouragement when the Quran and Islam were revealed to him. The prophet adored her. He remembered her for the rest of his life after she died. 

2- Sawda bint Zama: Sawdah and her first husband were among the early Muslims; her husband died, leaving her alone with young children. The prophet then married her after obtaining the agreement of her non-Muslim parents.  She was a lovely, charitable, and cheerful lady.

3- Aisha bint Abu Bakr: among the family tree of prophet Muhammad his wife Aisha bint Abu Bakr. She was the daughter of the prophet’s best friend, Abu Bakr, who was always there for him and provided him with the support he needed. Aishah was raised up as a Muslim.

When Aishah and the prophet married, they were quite close. He adored her, and she went on to become an accomplished Islamic scholar. Aisha narrated almost 2000 ahadith; she was noted for her acute intelligence and immaculate judgment.

She was one of the prophet’s three wives who memorized the entire Quran; the prophet died in her arms. She also had an important part in the spread of Islam for over 40 years.

4- Hafsa bint Umar: Hafsa was Mohammed’s fourth wife; she is the daughter of Umar ibn Al-Khattab, a close friend of the prophet, peace and blessing be upon him. She married at a young age and took part in migrations to Abyssinia and Medina. She was then widowed at an early age. But then she married the Prophet Muhammed, uniting the Al-Khattabs with the Prophet’s family.

Hafsa and Aish were the prophet’s youngest wives, and they had similar qualities; they were both powerful and resolute ladies. She was the first woman to memorize the Quran, she was married to the Prophet for eight years, and she lived for thirty-four years after his death.. She became the custodian of the first Mushaf after her father’s death.

5- Zaynab bint Khuzayma: among the family tree of the prophet Muhammad is Zaynab bint Khuzayma. She was one of the prophet’s first wives, although few people remember much about her because she died one year after marrying the prophet. She was recognized before marrying the prophet for her passion for helping the poor, and she was dubbed the “Mother of the Poor” because she was so generous to them.  

Nobody knows how many times she was widowed before marrying the prophet, but her most recent husband was killed in war.

6- Ramla bint Abu Sufyan (Um Habeebah): She was the daughter of Abu Sufyan, a Quraish leader, Ramla, and was also known as Um Habeebah. Her father was an opponent of Islam, but she didn’t care and revealed her faith; she faced tremendous repercussions, but her faith did not change.

After all of their hardship, umm Habibah and her husband joined the exodus to Abyssinia. But then her husband died, leaving her in a foreign nation with little assistance and a young daughter. When the prophet learned of this, he proposed marriage to her, which she accepted; four years later, the prophet died.

7- Juwayriyya bint Al Harith: Juwayriyya was the chief of the Banu Mustaliq tribe’s daughter; she was 20 years old when she was taken in the fight between Muslims and the Banu Mustaliq tribe. The prophet married her and brought her clan and the Muslims together.

Their marriage enabled her clan to convert to Islam with dignity rather than defeat. Following the announcement of the marriage, all hostages were released, and the war loot was restored to the Banu Mustaliq tribe. She was married to the prophet for six years and lived for 39 years after his death.

8- Maymunah bint Al Harith: among the family tree of the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is his wife Maymunah bint Al Harith. Maymunah proposed marriage to the prophet, who accepted. She married the prophet for more than three years before he died.  Her nephew, Ibn Abbas, went on to become the greatest Quran scholar, and he benefited much from her knowledge.

9- Safiyya bint Huyayy: She was born in Madinah, the daughter of Huyayy ibn Akhtab, leader of the Jewish clan Banu Nadir. Banu Nadir was kicked out of Madinah and relocated to Khaybar. Safiyya was seized when the Muslims beat them in the Battle of Khaybar. When the prophet offered her the chance to convert to Islam, she accepted. The prophet was then wedded to her. 

Even after she converted to Islam, the prophet’s wives continued to question her about her Jewish heritage, so the prophet told her:

“If they discriminate against you again, tell them that your husband is Muhammad, your father was Prophet Aaron and your uncle was Prophet Musa.  So what is there in that to be scornful about?”

She was only 21 when the prophet died and she lived for 39 years after his death.

10- Zaynab bint Jahsh: She came from a Nobel Quraish family and married Zayd, the prophet Muhammed’s adopted son. However, their marriage was only for a brief time, and the marriage did not suit any of them, therefore they divorced for their personal comfort. She later married the prophet. The Quran mentions their marriage to demonstrate that an adopted son is not the same as a natural son.

11- Umm Salamah bint Abu Umayyah (Hind bint Abu Umayya): Umm Salamah married the prophet when she was 29 years old after her first husband was killed in the battle of Uhud, leaving her widowed.

Umm Salamah and her husband were among the first persons to abandon Mecca and migrate to Abyssinia. Her life demonstrates her forbearance in any situation. She was forced to separate from her husband, and her son was kidnapped.

When her husband died, she cried out to Allah for help, saying, “O Lord, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in return, which only you, the Exalted and Mighty, can give.”
