About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi moves on to delve details on the 4th Ummahat Ul Momineen - Hafsa Bint Umar Ibn Al Khattab RA.

Hafsah was born in the year of the building of the Kaaba and was born 5 years before the Prophethood. She was the eldest child of Umar ibn al-Khattab and Zainab bint Madh'uwn.Abdullah Ibn Umar is her full brother. Before the marriage to Prophet ﷺ, she was married to Khunais ibn Hudhaifa and she had no children from this union. Khunais died after the battle of Badr , though he was not  a participant of the same.

Hafsa RA was married to the Prophet ﷺ after he himself proposed for her hand in marriage. She got married in the month of Shaban, 3 H at the age of 21.

What do we know about the life of Hafsa RA with the Prophet ﷺ? Numerous incidents are brought to the table and we fully comprehend the nature of the marriage that it was.

We also gather valuable insights on the reason for the revelation of Surah At Tahreem and we acquaint ourselves with the incident that transpired between Hafsa Ra and the Prophet ﷺ revolving around Maria RA. Also, next in line for discussion is the topic of the divorce of Hafsa RA and the reason for this divorce. The whole city was grieving at this news and her father, Umar Ibn Al Khattab RA took it the hardest.

What made the Prophet ﷺ reconcile and go back to Hafsa RA? It was due to Allah sending Jibril AS to the Prophet ﷺ with the clear message saying that Hafsa is the one who fasts and prays regularly and that she will be his wife in this life and the Hereafter.

One of the biggest blessings and privileges that is ascribed to Hafsa RA is the entrustment of the first Mushaf ever written with her and which remained in her care till her death. She has 60 Hadith narrated by her.

She died at the age of 60 years in 45 H during the reign of Muawiyah. The Janazah was led by Marwan Ibn Hakam.
