Pearl of Wisdom

in his will to his son Hasan (AS) said, 'And if you find a needy person who is deprived who can carry your provision for you until the Day of Judgment and who will pay you back tomorrow when you need it, then seize the opportunity and let him hold this provision for you. Increase in giving provisions to the poor if you are able to, for you might look for them and not find them. Seize the opportunity to lend someone when you yourself are free from need so that he may repay you in your time of difficulty.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. Letter 31

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
