Prophat Muhammad pbuh marriage to his adopted son’s wife Zaynab bint Jahsh RA the mother of the belivers.
The Quranic Evidence on Prophet Muhammed’s pbuh Marriage To Zaynab RA the mother of the belivers.
The Quranic verses of Surah Al-Ahzaab. : “And [remember, O Muhammad], when you said to the one on whom Allah bestowed favor and you bestowed favor, “Keep your wife and fear Allah ,” while YOU CONCEALED WITHIN YOURSELF THAT WHICH ALLAH IS TO DISCLOSE. And you feared the people, while Allah has more right that you fear Him. So when Zayd had no longer any need for her, WE MARRIED HER TO YOUin order that there not be upon the believers any discomfort concerning the wives of their adopted sons when they no longer have need of them. And ever is THE COMMAND OF ALLAH ACCOMPLISHED.” – Quran 33:37
Prophet Muhammad pbuh is complete role model for a billion followers worldwide, who is a great epitome of existence in himself. His character, his teachings, his morals and his complete life ignite the spark of enthusiasm to his followers as well motivate them in every step of their life. It’s a human psychology that when one can’t falsify the truth so the only option remain with him to just disgrace him by attempting to assassinate the person’s character. It’s due to media and the ruling hands behind it, thanking them for their contribution to increase Prophet Muhammad pbuh publicity worldwide. Thus, those who try to insult, are unaware that these things brings the reverse effects, increase his dignity and prestige..so let them continue, for their mere words can never reduce the honor Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) actually holds.
Much lies and false propaganda is being put out regarding the last and final Messenger sent to mankind, Prophet Muhammad pbuh about the marriage with Zaynab bint Jahsh RA mother of the belivers. And the wrong image of Prophet Muhammad’s pbuh character has been trying to portray through false statement. This incident for the truth seeker gives a totally different perspective when he learns the reality and wisdom of God behind it. To accept God as Creator and Sustainer is fairly easy but it’s very difficult to accept the authority of God.
As the matter of fact this is the last revelation, God want to eliminate the Ignorance custom of the Arab society which considered adopted sons as real sons, and hence God commanded that adopted sons could not be claimed as real sons. It’s lawful to marry his wife as there is no blood relation (Mahram). It’s very important to abolish these customs, for God wants to ease your affairs and avoid hardship for you. Which was demonatrated through prophet Muhammed pbuh, so that later none can make any changes or alter any laws according to his own desire.
Prophet Muhammed’s pbuh marriage to Zainab RA the wife of Zayd RA (who was the adopted son of Prophet pbuh) was done so to break the taboo in the Arab society that adopted sons were considered as primary relations (real sons) But God responded by saying that these are mere sayings from their mouths. The revelation had a big impact in the society, who was going to break that ancient tradition? It was none other than Muhammed pbuh, as God commanded him to do so. Mankind should be thankful and admired for the task given to Prophet Muhammad pbuh who accomplished it and eliminated these taboos and cultural barriers by undergoing rejection, mockery, torture and disgrace from the society which is still continue. God knows the secrets of the heart so consoling His beloved messenger by these verse ‘So bear patiently (O Muhammad (pbuh)) what they say, …..” and reminding him that He has elevated his mention and reputation high in the present life and the Hereafter “And raised high your fame?” (Quran 94 :4)
Many fabricated stories have been rumored to degrade the the Prophet’s character. The Prophet pbuh was demonstrating the most noble conducts meant for mankind to be followed to fulfill desires in the legal boundary of God’s command and not exceed by acquiring evil ways to fulfill them. Hence the Prophet pbuh as commanded by God was acting upon these commands to abolish ignorance and backwardness of mankind’s intellect and maturity, it was not for himself, as he bore a lot of troubles from a rebellion society for these acts, but he did for the sake of mankind to emerge in the future and for them to abide by the best utopia, both of civilization and of the human self. Indeed there is great wisdom in every order of God and every demonstration of the prophet pbuh for all all ages and species of human kind to come further. This marriage was Divine Decree imposed on Him pbuh. The clear evidence shown from the Quran and Hadith.
“Narrated Anas: Zaid bin Haritha came to the Prophet complaining about his wife. The Prophet kept on saying (to him), “Be afraid of Allah and keep your wife.” Aisha said, “IF ALLAH’S MESSENGER WERE TO CONCEAL ANYTHING (OF THE QUR’AN HE WOULD HAVE CONCEALED THIS VERSE.” Zainab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, “You were given in marriage by your families, while I WAS MARRIED (TO THE PROPHET) BY ALLAH FROM OVER SEVEN HEAVENS.” And Thabit recited, “The Verse:– ‘But (O Muhammad) you did hide in your heart that which Allah was about to make manifest, you did fear the people,’ (33.37) was revealed in connection with Zainab and Zaid bin Haritha.”. (Sahih al-Bukhari )
May the peace and blessings be upon Him.
