The Loyalty of the Prophet (PBUH) Towards his Wives


Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was immensely honorable and loyal to his wives especially to lady Khadija may Allah be pleased with her. Although lady ‘Ai'sha never saw lady Khadija and was never harmed by her, she said: "I have never been more jealous of a wife of the Prophet than i was of Khadija because the prophet (PBUH) mentioned her and praised her a lot." 'Narrated by al Bukhary'


The loyalty of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to his wives was clear when the “verse of choosing” was revealed-: {O Prophet (Muhammad)! Say to your wives: if you desire the life of this world, and its glitter, then come! I will make a provision for you and set you free in a handsome manner (divorce). }(Al Ahzab:28)


 First he went to lady ‘A’isha and told her that he will tell her something and that she should not rush to make a choice until she discusses it with her parents. Considering that she was young, he was worried that she would choose worldly pleasures and lose this life and the hereafter. But she knew what was good for her more than her parents. She told the Prophet (PBUH): "do you want me to discuss this with my parents? I choose Allah, his prophet, and the hereafter."


After lady ‘A’isha had made her choice she asked the prophet not to reveal it to any of the other women. He told her that Allah had not sent him obstinate but a tutor and a facilitator and he shall tell any of his wives if they ask. Then he went to tell his other wives and reported what lady ‘A’isha may Allah be pleased with her had chosen.


They all chose Allah, his prophet, and the hereafter. They had the great manners of the Prophet (PBUH) and so chose what he chose, and like him they abstained from pursuing worldly pleasures and only wanted the hereafter.
