They had two children, Ali, who died in childhood, and Umama who was married to Ali … Their names were Zainab, Ruqayya and Umm Kulthoom.

So Zainab stayed in Makkah, until the battle of Badr Her mother is Amimah binti Abdul Muthallib bin Hasyim, the aunt of the Prophet Muhammad. He was one of the nobles of the Quraish, and the Prophet … [6], Some Shia accounts do not consider her to have been a biological daughter of Muhammad; they consider Fatimah as his only biological daughter.[7][8]. Yet when Zaid complained to him of issues between them he advised him not to divorce her because he was worried about people taunting him for marrying his son’s wife. Were the Wives of the Prophet Dissatisfied with Him? Zainab asked him to enter while she did not have veil on her so she put sleeve of the coat of mail on her head. The story of Zainab bint Jahsh’s marriage to Zaid, their divorce, and subsequently her marriage to the Prophet (ﷺ) is yet another episode of the Prophet’s life that has been a regular subject of detractors be they the first opponents of the Prophet or those among the orientalists and missionaries who find no other way to raise question about the cause of Islam and the character and demeanor of the Prophet except by picking on baseless narratives that have been preserved in the classical Islamic texts only du… For it is not lawful to take her unless she have been married by another. He was one of the nobles of Quraish, and the Prophet(PBUH) loved him. Accordingly, scholars say that in reports of non-legal nature the mursal reports of even the companions are not necessarily strong.[45]. A group of them pursued Zainab and overtook her at Dhu Tuwa. They were blessed with two children, Ali and Umaymah, though sadly, Ali passed away in his childhood. Zainab bint Jahsy is a beautiful white woman. He said that they had no intention of keeping a woman from her father in revenge for Badr, but that it was wrong of Kinana to humiliate the Quraysh further by parading her removal in public; he must do it quietly, when the "chatter" had died down. يونس عن أبي سلمة الهمذاني مولى الشعبي عن الشعبي قال: مرض زيد بن حارثة فدخل عليه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يعوده، وزينب ابنة جحش امرأته جالسة عند رأس زيد، فقامت زينب لبعض شأنها، فنظر إليها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، ثم طأطأ رأسه فقال: سبحان اللَّه مقلب القلوب والابصار، فقال زيد: أطلقها لك يا رسول الله؟ فقال: لا، فانزل اللَّه عز وجل: «وَإِذْ تَقُولُ لِلَّذِي أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ» إلى قوله: «وَكانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ مَفْعُولًا, Yunus b. Bukair – Abi Salama al-Hamadhani the freedslave of al-Sha‘bi– Sha‘bi said: Zaid was ill. Jamal al-Din al-Zaili’i (d. 762/1360), a prominent medieval authority on hadith, observed: وكم من حديث كثرت رواته وتعددت طرقه ، وهو حديث ضعيف؟ … بل قد لا يزيد الحديث كثرة الطرق إلا ضعفاً, How many hadith reports are weak even though reported by a large number of narrators and through multiple links? At this Allah revealed, ‘And you were concealing in your heart what Allah was going to reveal, and you were fearing people, while Allah is more entitled to be feared by you. About a month after the battle, Zainab's adopted brother, Zayd, arrived in Mecca to escort her to Medina. Whereas multiple narrations with some weakness do rise up to the level of acceptability for their collective strength this applies only when the weakness of individual reports is slight. What we do, however, know is that Yunus b. Bukair who narrated from him died in 199/815 when he was nearly eighty. 128/745). As the first two sons of Imam Ali (A.S),Hazrat Zainab was named by the prophet Muhammad (SAW) himself. Naturally, the guesswork about another person’s feelings especially of someone you never have had the opportunity to interact with does not establish anything. ‘Abd al-‘Aziz (r. 99–101/717–20), the Byzantine emperor referred to the Prophet’s “seduction” of a woman named Zeda [sic] as evidence of his “unchasteness” and duplicity. Al-Dhahabi mentions that scholars have agreed on rejecting his narrations.[39]. [3]:314[4]:22, Zainab accepted this instruction. Qur’an says ‘Ask People of the Book’: What and Why? The Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘No’. One day Abu al-‘As ibn Rabi’ went to the Prophet (ﷺ) before he had received his mission of Prophethood and said: “I … 26 Vol.4, 266-267, [56] Al-Damishqi, Ibn Kathir, Tafsir al-Qur’an al-‘Azim, (Riyadh: Dar al-Taiba, 1999) Vol.6, 425, [57] , al-‘Asqalani, Ibn Hajar, Fath al-Bari, Vol.8, 523-524, [58] Al-Baqa‘i, Abu Bakr, Nazam al-Durar fi Tanasub al-Ayat wa al-Suwar, (Cairo: Dar al-Kitab al-Islami, n.d.)

The story shows the importance of having a great Patience in Islam. After that happened, she was made unattractive to the other man. Zainab bint Muhammad is regarded as the eldest daughter of the Islamic prophet Muhammad by his first wife Khadijah according to the Sunni school of thought. ‘Ikrima’s (d. 115/735) report though lacking in visual description is the earliest in giving definite meanings to Prophet’s alleged outward reaction. release him”. Firstly, here Zainab is neither with her head uncovered nor is she in some haste to dress up to open the door for the Prophet (ﷺ) rather she is depicted in a lot more crude manner and is observed as such by the Prophet (ﷺ) when the doorway cloth is moved by the wind. have two or more links missing.[16]. Her death was attributed to complications from the miscarriage that she had suffered in 624. Among the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) wives, we know the least about Zaynab bint Khuzayma. She said: “He is not here, Messenger of God. [30], The report, therefore, is weak not only because of it being mursal but also for the fact of a narrator being unknown and another with poor memory. ‘Abdul Rahman b. Zaid’s (d. 182/798) report has the Prophet see Zainab undressed when the doorway cloth is moved by wind. “At the time of her marriage, Hazrat Zainab bint Jahash (ra) was thirty-five years of age and in light of the circumstances of Arabia at the time, this was considered middle-aged or old. In the case under study, we can see none of the reports after that of Qatada are even simply mursal for they have other severe weakness in them as well. [5]:4 Kinana showed the arrows in his quiver and threatened to kill anyone who came any closer. There might actually be two if not more links between Sha‘bi and the persons involved should the narrative be accepted. John of Damascus who was known to the Muslims as Yuhanna b. Mansur b.

He almost entered upon him – (Mu‘mal said:) I am not sure if it is Hammad’s comment or part of the hadith itself — Zaid bin Haritha came to him complaining about (his wife). Zaynab bint Khuzaymah (Arabic: زينب بنت خزيمة ‎), also known as Umm al-Masakin, "Mother of the Poor", born 595) was one of the wives of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.As a result of her early death, less is known about her than any of his other wives. Mentioning Islam among the heresies that had emerged till his time he remarked about the Prophet (ﷺ) and his teachings: Mohammed had a friend named Zeid. Despite there being clear difference between the two stories they were incredulously related by the people contemporary to first Christian polemicists writing about Islam– a fact which alludes to our suggested background in which such comparisons were drawn. Okay! This was the worst of all the “abominations” that Leo attributed to Muhammad because, as he knew, the Qur’an represents the Prophet’s marriage to this woman as a product of divine intervention (“of all these abominations the worst is that of accusing God of being the originator of all these filthy acts”). (The month of Dhulqada in the 5th Year of the Migration) Hazrat Zaynab bint Jahsh was the daughter of Umayma bint Ab­dul­mut­talib, the aunt of the Prophet. It mentions nothing about his alleged feelings about Zainab. So … The story shows the importance of having a great Patience in Islam. Moreover, he was unanimously considered a weak narrator.[41]. He thus concealed what he had been informed by Allah as he shied away from telling Zaid that, ‘Your wife would soon be mine.’[50]. Her mother is Amimah binti Abdul Muthallib bin Hasyim, the aunt of the Prophet Muhammad. His summary grading for the report is “Extremely Reprehensible” (munkar jiddan). The texts reported through the above chains of reporters also differ too much to see them as mutually corroborating. Since 2007, the English Wikipedia page of Zainab bint Muhammad has received more than 543,664 page views. 471, [35] Al-Barzinji, Muhammad b.

In the beginning we mentioned the traditional understanding of verse 33:37, let us now see if it is supported by the flow of the Qur’anic narrative and reports of the early Muslim generations. Al-Kalbi’s (d. 146/763) version combines (rather blends) Zaid’s understanding of Prophet’s (ﷺ) alleged feelings with his complaint about Zainab’s behavior. [4]:24, At one time there were three girls living in the household of Khadija. … Once married, Zainab lived with Abul Ash bin Rabi 'husband. Then he arranged for the Quraysh merchandise to be returned, and Abu al-As took it to its owners in Mecca. Abu Bakr b. Suleman b. Abi Hathma’s alleged report has the Prophet go to Zaid’s place where he found Zainab alone and with her head uncovered which she tried to cover with coat of mail. narrator(s) being accused of lying, or graded weak by the agreement of critics, mere number does not suffice. David S. Powers mentions: By the end of the first century a.h., reports about Muhammad’s marriage to Zaynab had become grist for the mill of Christian anti-Muslim polemic. 1427, See also, Silsala Da’ifa, Nos. Muhammad answered, “Hold to your wife and fear God.” Thereafter, Zainab was no longer a docile wife and Zayd had to divorce her. Zayd was always called Zayd b. Muhammad. The Prophet did not tell Zaid to divorce her when he mentioned the troubles in their relation even though he had been told through revelation that it was thus planned by Allah and was destined to happen anyway. Just as she left to do something, the Prophet (ﷺ) looked at her, lowered his head and said: Glory be to him who directs the hearts and eyes. He sent Abu al-As home, and Abu al-As promised to send Zainab to Medina. Zainab sent the money for his ransom, including the onyx necklace. She was got married with Hazrat Abdullah bin Jaffar رضی اللہ تعالی عنہ who was brought up by Holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ after death of his father. Thereafter, when her ‘iddah ended, Allah sent a revelation from heavens regarding her marriage with the Prophet.[36]. A number of scholars have likewise considered this the most apt interpretation of the verse. Her mother is Amimah binti Abdul Muthallib bin Hasyim, the aunt of the Prophet Muhammad. Her children were Muawiya, Awn, Munqidh, Ibrahim, Harith, Rabta, Khadija, Sukhayla, , Amina, Safiya. The name of her first husband is not known, but he had died by 622.: 180 At that time Zaynab, who had become a Muslim, was among those who accompanied her brother Abdullah on the Hijra to Medina. This is what Allah made known and not something of the alleged feelings of the Prophet (ﷺ). Zaid then wanted to divorce Zainab even though he had no complaint about her. *hazrat zainab bint muhammad:- She was the eldest daughter of the prophet (SAW) and Hazrat Khadija and was born 10 year before the prophethood. I mentioned that the Holy Prophet (sa) later married Hazrat Zainab bint Jahsh (ra).

Hussain who said: Allah, the Almighty, told his Prophet (ﷺ) that Zainab would be among his wives yet when Zaid came to him complaining of Zainab he said, ‘Fear Allah, and keep your wife with you.’ At this Allah said (in the Qur’an): ‘And your concealed in your heard what Allah was about to reveal.’[48]. Taking into account the above narration as well the following students of Hammad b. Zaid (d. 179/795) have  narrated this hadith via Thabit (d. 127/745) from Anas: حدثنا مؤمل بن إسماعيل، حدثنا حماد بن زيد، حدثنا ثابت، عن أنس قال: أتى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم منزل زيد بن حارثة، فرأى امرأته زينب فكأنه دخله – لا أدري من قول حماد، أو في الحديث – فجاء زيد يشكوها إليه، فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: ” أمسك عليك زوجك، واتق الله ” قال: فنزلت: {واتق الله وتخفي في نفسك ما الله مبديه} [الأحزاب: 37] ، إلى قوله {زوجناكها} [الأحزاب: 37] يعني زينب, Mu‘mal b. Isma’il – Hammad b. Zaid – Thabit – Anas who said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) came to Zaid b. Haritha’s place, and saw his wife Zainab. Shi'a Muslims believe she was Muhammad's stepdaughter, daughter of Khadijah by her second marriage. As to the reports authentically traceable back to Anas and Qatada they contain nothing that may coincide or confirm the narratives that suggest the Prophet (ﷺ) hid his instantaneously developed longing for Zainab. Abu al-‘As ibn Rabi’ was the husband of Zainab and was loved by Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) very much.
