He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, married Zaynab to Abu Al-’Aas ibn Ar-Rabee’ from the tribe of Quraysh, who was the son of her maternal aunt, Haalah bint Khuwaylid. Abu Al-’Aas was known in Makkah for his wealth and business and his trustworthiness.

Zaynab, stayed with her husband, and remained a believer, while he stayed upon his polytheism. The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then made the Hijrah to Madeenah (migration) while she stayed behind in Makkah, and he could not take his daughter with him. Thus, when the Quraysh went to the Battle of Badr, Abu Al-’Aas ibn Ar-Rabee’ went with them and was captured by the Muslims as a prisoner of war.

‘Aa’ishah (the wife of the Prophet) narrated that when the people of Makkah sent the ransom for the captives (of Badr), Zaynab sent some money and a necklace belonging to her as a ransom for Abu Al-’Aas. The necklace had previously belonged to her mother Khadeejah, which had been a present from her when Zaynab married Abu Al-’Aas. When the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, saw the necklace it affected him greatly and he said: “If you see it fit to release her captive and to return to her what belongs to her [i.e. then do so].” They agreed and the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, made Abu Al-’Aas promise to send Zaynab back to him. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sent Zayd ibn Haarithah and another man from the Ansaar, and said: “Wait at a place called Batn Ya’jaj until Zaynab passes by, then accompany her until you bring her back here.”

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, praised Abu Al-’Aas ibn Ar-Rabee’ and said: “He spoke to me and told the truth, and he promised me and fulfilled his promise.”2 He had promised the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, that he would return to Makkah after the Battle of Badr so he could send his daughter Zaynab back to him. He fulfilled his promise and separated from her, even though he loved her

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, married his daughter Ruqayyah to the righteous ruler ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan. One of the outstanding characteristics for which ‘Uthmaan was known was his Hayaa’ (shyness). The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, loved him very much, respected him greatly and gave him the glad tidings of Paradise. So when Ruqayyah died, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhiwa sallam, married ‘Uthmaan to her sister, Umm Kulthoom and she too passed away while being married to ‘Uthmaan.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, married his daughter Faatimah to ‘Ali ibn Abu Taalib who was one of the first young people to believe in the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. ‘Ali was raised in the home of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, before Islam and remained with him, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, until his Prophethood. The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, loved him, drew him close and gave him the glad tidings of Paradise.
