The Prophet's Emotions Towards his Wives 

 


 Looking attentively to the biography of the Prophet – peace be upon him – you will find that he was extending a great deal respect to his wives and was paying high attention, care and love towards them.

 

He was the best example for the ideal manners toward the wife. He was comforting his wives, wiping their tears, respecting their emotions, hearing their words, caring for their complaints, alleviating their sadness, going in picnics with them, racing with them, bearing their abandonment, discussing matters with them, keeping their dignity, supporting them in emergencies, declaring his love to them and was very happy with such love. Here are some attractive examples and shining moments in his life:

 

Knowing Their Feelings 

The Prophet – peace be upon him – was telling Aisha – may Allah be pleased with her: "I know well when you are pleased or angry from me. Aisha replied: how you know that? He said: when you are pleased with me you swear by saying "by the God of Mohammad" but when you are angry you swear by saying "by the God of Ibrahim". She said: you are right, I just desert you name. In another narration the same tradition ended by saying: "no, by the God of Ibrahim".

Understanding their Jealousy & Love 

Umm Salama – may Allah be pleased with her – narrated: she brought food in a dish of her own to the Prophet – peace be upon him – and his companions. Seeing that, Aisha came holding a tool and broke the dish out of jealousy. Understanding the situation, the Prophet took the two halves of the dish and said to his companions: eat your food, it is just the jealousy of your mother, then the Prophet took the dish of Aisha and gave it to Um Salama and gave the dish of Um Salama to Aisha.

Understanding their Psychology & Nature


The Prophet – peace be upon him – said: "treat women kindly, they were created from a rib, and the most crooked part of the rib is the highest part thereof; so, if you tried to rectify the rib it will be broken and if you left the rib as it is, it will remain crooked, and women are just like this; therefore treat them kindly".

Narrated by: Abu Huraira – degree: right – Reported by: Al-Bukhari –source: al-Jame' Al-Sahih  – page or number: 3331

 

 

This tradition is not for dispraising women as understood by the public, contrary, it is for teaching and educating men. Moreover, this tradition expressed the accurate understanding of the nature of the women and indicated the possibility of leaving the woman as it is in the permissible things but to guide her if she exceeded the permissible limits such as doing the sins and neglecting the duties.

 

Complaining to & Consulting Them

 
The Prophet – peace be upon him – has consulted his wives in the most delicate and important matters such as consulting his wife Um Salama – may Allah be pleased with her – regarding Al-Hudaibia treaty. The Prophet – peace be upon him – had written the treaty between him and the polytheists of Quraish in Al-Hudaibia region, in the hudaibia year and told his companions: go to make sacrifice and shave, but no one responded. The Prophet– peace be upon him – repeated that three times but still no one responded to him. Then the Prophet – peace be upon him – went to Um Salama and told her about the matter. Hearing that, Um Salam said: o Prophet of Allah, just go and don't speak to any one until you make your sacrifice and shave. The Prophet– peace be upon him – went out and did not speak to anyone until he did the same. Seeing that, the companions stood and make their immolation and began shaving for each other.

Keeping their dignity in ordeals

 
Aisha – may Allah be pleased with her – narrated: when the Prophet – peace be upon him – wanted to travel, he used to cast lots between his wives and the one who wins the lot will accompany him. At Bani Al-Mustaleq battle, I won the lot and traveled with him. Women were eating light food and avoid meat in order to move easily. I was sitting in my howdah when we get down for a rest, and when we want to go they carry me while in the howdah and put it on the back of the camel and then tight it with ropes to go forward again.

 When the Prophet – peace be upon him – finished the travel, he went back to the Medina. By approaching the Medina, he got down and took rest for a short period at night. Thereafter, the people were told to resume walking and they got ready to continue while I was out to relieve nature and I was having a necklace in my neck. When I finished, the necklace fell down from my neck and I did not remember it until I reached to the place of my baggage. At that time, people began leaving while I returned back again to my place looking for the necklace until I found it. Then, the people who took my camel for rest returned back and put the howdah on the camel thinking that I was there as usual and continue walking. I returned back to the camp and no people were there. All of them went forward. Seeing that, I covered myself with my gown and lay down in my place so that when they miss me they can return and find me there. While in that situation (laying down), Safwan Bin Al-Mu'atel Al-Salami passed by me as he was late for relieving nature. He saw my black clothes and approached me – he knew me before the revelation of the hijab (veil) verse – and said: "to Allah we belong, and to him is our return. The wife of the Prophet is here? I was then covering myself with my gown. He said: why are you late? I said nothing. Then he got the camel close to me and said: ride. He went back a little. Then I rode the camel and he guided the camel towards the caravan but we did not reach them and they did not miss us until the morning when they got down for rest. Then, they saw the man guiding the camel I rode. At that moment, a group of people fabricated a story and began spreading rumors that we committed adultery and the whole camp became confused while I knew nothing about the whole matter.

Then we reached medina and I was very sick and no one was telling me what was going on. Then the matter reached my father and Prophet – peace be upon him – and no one mentioned anything to me. I was then not pleased with the treatment of the Prophet towards me while I was sick because when he enters my room while my mother was nursing me he just says: how are you? He did not say anything else. Seeing that, I felt angry of his coolness and told him: may I go to my mother? He replied: no problem. Then I went to my mother and knew nothing about the whole matter. About twenty days later I recovered. At our era, we were not having toilets like the non-arabs. We hate it. We were just going to the free spaces in Medina and the women were going out every night to relieve nature. At certain night, I went out with Um Mustah to relieve nature.

At the way, she stumbled with her clothes and said: woe to my son Mustah!. I said to her: it is not good to speak like this about a man like your son, he is one of the immigrants and he has witnessed Bader battle! Um mustah said: don't you know the recent news? I said: what happened? She told me about the rumors made by the people that I committed adultery. I asked her: is that what happened? She said: yes. Hearing that, I was not able even to relieve nature and went back to home. I continued crying till I felt my liver will be broken out. I told my mother: all people speaking ill about me, why you did not mention this to me? My mother said: my dear daughter, don't worry; this usually happens to any beautiful woman loved by her husband who has other wives because the other wives and people will speak a lot about her out of their jealousy. The Prophet – peace be upon him – then delivered a sermon to the people – I did not know.

He said: "O people, why some group of you are speaking ill about my family and telling lies about them? I swear by Allah the almighty that my wife is good and chaste. Moreover, they also spoke ill about a man who is straightforward. That man did not enter my house except in my company". Hearing that, Abdullah Bin Ubai and some men of Al-Khazraj tribe got angry and the matter became complicated after what was told by Mustah and Hamna Bint Jahsh, the sister of Zainab Bint Jahsh, the wife of the Prophet – peace be upon him – because she was the only wife who compete with my rank for the Prophet. Zainab spoke only good about me but her sister Hamna spread ill rumors about me.

 

When the Prophet – peace be upon him – delivered the above mentioned sermon, Usaid Bin Khudair said: O Prophet of Allah, if they (the people who spoke ill about your family) are from Al-Aws tribe we will kill them and if they are from our brothers in Al-Khazraj tribe, just order us and we will cut their necks. Hearing that, Saad Bin Obada (head in Al-Khazraj tribe and was considered of the righteous men) said out of ardor: I swear by Allah that you are lying, we will not allow you to cut their necks, you just said like that because you know well that they (who spoke ill about the Prophet’s family) are from Al-Khazraj tribe, and if they were from your tribe you will not speak like this about them. Usaid replied: I swear by Allah that you are the liar; you are just a hypocrite man defending the hypocrite people. The Prophet – peace be upon him – got down from his stand and called Ali Bin Abi Taleb and Osama Bin Zaid – may Allah be pleased with them – in order to consult them.

Osma spoke good and said: O Prophet of Allah, it is your family and we know nothing but good about them and these rumors are lies and falsehood. Ali said: Oh Prophet of Allah, women are many, you can marry again, and you can ask her maid, she will not lie. The Prophet – peace be upon him – called Barira (the maid) and asked her about the matter. Ali has beaten her severely while saying: speak the truth to the Prophet! The maid was saying: I swear by Allah that I know nothing but good about Aisha except that when I knead the dough I tell her to keep it but she sleeps and forgets it, so the sheep comes and eat it!

 

Then Aisha said: the Prophet – peace be upon him – entered to my room while my parents were with me. There was also a woman from al-Ansar (people who supported the Prophet) crying with me. The Prophet – peace be upon him – sat down, praised Allah then said: O Aisha, you knew what the people are saying, be pious, and if you committed any thing of what is said by the people just repent to Allah. Allah will accept the repentance. Hearing that, I did not find any tears in my eyes (out of my astonishment of the speech of the Prophet) and expected that my parents will answer on my behalf but they did not do so. I was thinking that the Prophet – peace be upon him – will see a dream proving my innocence but did not expect that my rank is high to the degree that Allah the almighty will reveal a verse proving my innocence. I told my parents: can't you answer the Prophet of Allah? They replied: we do not know what to say. The matter was very difficult for Abu Baker family. 


 Aisha said: at that ordeal, the family of my father Abu Baker suffered more than anyone can bear. Then Aisha said: when my parents did not reply, I started crying and said: I swear by Allah I will not repent from what you say at all because if I admit what the people is saying – though I am innocent – I will be saying what is not happened actually and if I denied, you will not believe. Then I tried to remember the name of the Prophet Yaqoub (Jacob) but in vain, then I said: I will say just like the father of Yusuf: {for me patience is most fitting: against that which ye assert, it is Allah (alone) whose help can be sought}. Then the revelation came to the Prophet – peace be upon him - and I put a pillow under his head. I did not fear anything because I was sure that I was innocent but my parents feared that Allah will reveal something proving the sayings of people.

 

Then the Prophet – peace be upon him – sat down sweating heavily. He started wiping his sweat and said: be happy Aisha, Allah the almighty has revealed your innocence. I said: all praise be to Allah the almighty. Then the Prophet – peace be upon him – went out and recited the following verses: {those who brought forward the lie are a body among yourselves: think it not to be an evil to you; on the contrary it is good for you: to every man among them (will come the punishment) of the sin that he earned, and to him who took on himself the lead among them, will be a penalty grievous}.

Giving time to adorn themselves


We went for a battle with the Prophet – peace be upon him – and I was riding on my camel but someone followed me from behind and began urging my camel with a stick; so, my camel went forward quickly more than the best camels. The Prophet – peace be upon him – said: (why you are in a hurry?). I said: I got married recently. He said: (you married a virgin or not?). I replied: a not virgin. He said: (isn't it better to marry a young girl so that you can have fun with each other?). Then, when I went to consummate the marriage, the Prophet– peace be upon him – said: (wait until night – i.e. After Al-Isha (evening Prayer) – so that the bride can comb her hair and get ready).
