About this episode

In this amazing video by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, we delve into the absolute essential part of the Seerah of the Prophet ﷺ- a background on the wives of the Prophet ﷺ.

A brief summary is seen below on each of the blessed wives :

  • Sauda RA- The Prophet ﷺ married her in Shawwal and she was old and had a large build with a rather slow gait.
  • Aisha RA - The most beloved wife of the Prophet ﷺ. A detailed discussion is warranted for this and we shall see it later.
  • Hafsa RA - The daughter of Umar Ibn Al Khattab RA. The story behind this marriage is an interesting one and deserves a fair listen.
  • Zainab bint Khuzaimah RA - Zaynab bint Khuzayma was known as ummul masakeen because of her generous, caring,noble and loving nature. She was the most noble mother in law in the history of mankind.
  • Umme Salama RA -  Her real name was Hind bint Abi Umayya and she was the very first lady to migrate to Madinah.
  • Zainab bint Jahsh RA.


Next in the discussion is the continuation of the Ghazawat that took place as time passed. One among them is Ghazwa Dhat Al Riqat which took place during Sha'ban. This Ghazwa involved a  tribe called Gatafaan who was famous for their lack of morals, looting, robbery and on the other side was our beloved Prophet ﷺ leading an army of 700 men. Further details are explained explicitly and should be listened to intently.

The stories pertaining to Jabir Ibn Abdullah RA are marked with intrigue, respect and intelligence. Please do listen intently to fully inculcate similar values in ourselves and our families.
