no marriage is perfect.
We say a marriage made in heaven.
There was a marriage made in heaven.
We speak of a marriage made in heaven. It's a metaphorical term.
It's a hope.
But there was one marriage actually made in heaven. And that was between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Zane had been to Jash for the Allah one.
And she would pride herself on that she would say to the other wives, your families married you, because Xena but of the Allahu arm her her marriage was without Nikka on Earth and without Maha a dowry and a ceremony. Allah azza wa jal married her as is mentioned in the Quran.
Fill a map of Oz ADA minha Turanza. Watch Naga.
Allah says We married you to her.
Sustainable the Allah Allah used to say to the CO wives that your family's married you off, but I, Allah married me in the head
by the declaration of the Quran, so for her there was no Nikka and there was no math.
And she would pride herself on that. So that was truly not metaphorically, truly and literally a marriage made in heaven.
Yet what was the relationship of the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a marriage made in heaven.
On one occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam didn't speak to her for a very, very long time.
Many many days. And in one narration up to two months.
He expressed his displeasure to
and she pleaded with him in every way trying to appease him and placate him.
Ultimately, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam except
Zayn had been to Joshua the Allahu anha would argue with the other ones. There were two parties and she was a leader of one party
and are entitled The Allahu anha says that she was my greatest rival
he and let the gana Tosa meanie. She was the one who would rival me with the Messenger of Allah.
And they would argue in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Dishes would be thrown onto the floor bowls would be broken, dis would be flung on each other one on one occasion, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu Bakr or the Allah man who came and the women were arguing amongst themselves and they began throwing dust on each other. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam boubakeur The Allah and quickly took hold of him and said Ya rasool Allah come and he took him away for Isha Salah.
So he pulled him out of the house.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, he
secluded himself for a month for up to a month. why there were so many incidents that had taken place, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more seriously contemplating divorcing all of his wives, including dissolving the marriage that was made in heaven.
Allah subhanho wa Taala told
give them an ultimatum. Give them a choice. And one of the reasons for him contemplating divorce one of the issues was
money maintenance, the wives of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, as I mentioned early in the hadith of Abu Huraira, the Lavon from Makati, that initially the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not have wealth.
So he wasn't in a position to repay the debts of his followers. But once money did start coming in,
instead of keeping it for himself, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever of the believers passes away and leaves behind the depth of the national paper.
So, initially, the wives understood that there was very little wealth, but once wealth started coming in, the wives made increasing demands of the prophets and the low it was seldom when I say demand, a must, we must be cautious about the understanding of the word demand, ie they did request this from the Prophet SAW
Lola Heidi was the one that kept on
pressing him on it. But their demands weren't great. They weren't asking for luxury. They lived in simple arms.
But they felt that they should have a greater share than their current share from the wealth that was coming to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam disapproved of that. So
amongst other things, this was one of the things that drove him to contemplating divorce and secluding himself. So Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah then told him, give them an ultimate, give them a choice. And what was that choice? Listen to the word very carefully. You've heard this before, but there's an angle that I wish to explain to you, which is Allah subhanho wa Adana said to him, yeah, you have to be your co lead as well. In Kaduna to didn't hire the dunya was iannetta Ha ha NormaTec. Goodness Allah and Jamila
to your wives or prophets,
if you seek the worldly life and its beauty, then come,
I shall give you some wealth, then I shall release you in a good way.
We can continue to didn't Allah Allah rasool Allah
and if you seek Allah and His messenger
for in Allah are at the mercy
of EMA, but if you see Allah and His Messenger than indeed Allah has prepared for those of you who do good on the mensurable I look at the word, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa salam, Allah subhanho wa taala. Anna didn't say to him, tell the wives, if you want your husband back.
If you want your husband
if you want to remain with your husband
this was a separation for a month.
And now you are being given an ultimatum you are being given a choice?
Do you want to continue in the marriage? Do you want to continue living with your husband? Do you want your husband back?
Do you want your beloved back now? Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna didn't use any of those phrases or times Allah's words were,
were in written Allah our soul.
If you seek Allah and His Messenger, Salah Hardy,
that was the ultimate.
So that choice wasn't between everything that they were demanding, and their husband.
Now the choice was, you either continue demanding what you want, if that's what you want, we shall give it to you, or
we won't give you your husband.
If you are seeking the alternative, the alternative is Allah and His Messenger salaam, wa.
This is why the wives of the prophets of Allah on equal syndrome and who did they choose? They chose Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they saw the prophets of Allah as a husband. Yes, more than a husband. They saw him as a messenger of Allah and they loved him as a messenger of Allah.
