Pearl of Wisdom

'Verily the most detested of all people in the sight of Allah are two: the man whom Allah has relegated to his own carnal self, so he has deviated from the straight path and is passionately fond of talking about innovations and misguiding others towards the wrong path. He tempts those who are charmed by him. He himself has strayed away from the guidance of his predecessors, and misleads those who follow him during his life as well as after his death. He carries the burden of others' sins and is entangled in his own misdeeds...?

Question : #103 Category: Marriage - Nikkah
Subject: the Prophet and his 9 wives
Question: Is it true that the Prophet had 9 wives at one given time? If so, doesn't this contradict the ruling of only being allowed 4 at one given time?
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

Yes, it is commonly understood that he did have nine wives. This is more than the four which are allotted Islamically. The Prophet did not break any laws, but in this case Allah ordered him to take on more wives.

The majority of his marriages were for political purposes. He would marry a sister and then her entire village would become Muslim. Therefore, at that time it was necessary for the Prophet to marry more than four.

Fi amanillah
