Examples from the marital life of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam:

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, had eleven wives,namely, Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid, ‘Aa’ishah bint Abu Bakr, Hafsah bint‘Umar, Sawdah bint Zam’ah Al-’Aamiriyyah, Zaynab bint Jahsh Al-Asadiyyah,Zaynab bint Khuzaymah Al-Hilaaliyyah, Umm Salamah Hind bint Abu Umayyah Al-Makhzoomiyyah, Umm Habeebah Ramlah bint Abu Sufyaan Al-Amawiyyah, Maymoonah bint Al-Haarith Al-Hilaaliyyah, Juwayriyyah bint Al-Haarith Al-Mustaliqiyyah and Safiyyah bint Huyay An-Nadhriyyah.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, died while being married to nine of them. However, Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid died before him.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, lived a joyful life with his pure wives, which reflected a practical example to the saying of Allah (which means):

«And live with them in kindness.»

[Quran: 4:19]

 Kindness here is a general term that encompasses all actions, sayings and noble manners.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was the best of people in the way he treated his wives. How can this not be the case while he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was the one who said:

“The best amongst you are those who are the best in treating their wives. Indeed I am the best in treating my wives.”

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was kind in his treatment, and this is evident in his biography. If people today were to emulate the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in his treatment of his wives, many marital problems which we often hear about would be solved.

Due to the increase in the rate of divorce resulting from marital problems, we must look into the marital life of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu‘alayhi wa sallam, and see how he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, lived his marital life which resulted in a harmonious joyful life. How did he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, treat his wives? How did he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, overlook some of their mistakes? We must do so because he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is the best example for us to follow and emulate.
