The Article is in reply to series of allegations made by author in his book which can be accessed here: What Prophet Mohammed Did His Whole Life?

Titles of these allegations against Prophet are mentioned below, Inshallah each allegation would be answered in individual article by titles mentioned below

8. Muhammad captured a woman and raped her. He also encouraged the rape of women in front of their husbands (Sunaan Abu Dawud 11.2150).

Hadith (Abu Dawud: 2150)


 

Above is nothing but a Lie apart from quoting hadith he just quoted the reference, secondly it is a challenge to Anti Islamic people that show us single Qur`anic ayah and Hadith where it says "You can Rape Women or captives", let us see what Quran, Prphet peace be upon him, Abu Bakar Siddique (1st Caliph) and Umar bin Al Khattab said regarding Women in war.

 

Allah says
 
[5:8]O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah , witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.
 
Al-Qurtubi commented
دلت الآية على أن كفر الكافر لا يمنع من العدل معه، وأن يقتصر بهم على المستحق من القتال والاسترقاق، وأن المثلة بهم غير جائزة وإن قتلوا نساءنا أو أطفالنا وغمونا بذلك، فليس لنا أن نقتلهم بمثله قصداً لإيصال الغم والحزن إليهم
"The fact that someone disbelieves does not prevent us from being just to him, and that our dealing with them (in a state of war) should only be restricted to fighting or capturing them if they deserve so. And it is not permissible for us to retaliate in the same manner, even if they kill our women and children and cause sorrow to befall us, it is not permissible for us to act likewise with the intention of making them feel grief and sorrow".
("Al Jaami' li Ahkaamil Qur'aan" 6/110). http://www.islamweb.net/newlibrary/display_book.php?idfrom=1171&idto=1171&bk_no=48&ID=593

a) Maliks Muwatta Book 021, Hadith Number 008. Section : Prohibition against Killing Women and Children in Military Expeditions.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab that a son of Kab ibn Malik (Malik believed that ibn Shihab said it was Abd ar-Rahman ibn Kab) said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade those who fought ibn Abi Huqayq (a treacherous jew from Madina) to kill women and children. He said that one of the men fighting had said, 'The wife of ibn Abi Huqayq began screaming and I repeatedly raised my sword against her. Then I would remember the prohibition of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, so I would stop. Had it not been for that, we would have been rid of her.'"

b) Maliks Muwatta Book 021, Hadith Number 010. Section : Prohibition against Killing Women and Children in Military Expeditions.

Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said that Abu Bakr as-Siddiq was sending armies to ash-Sham. He went for a walk with Yazid ibn Abi Sufyan who was the commander of one of the battalions. It is claimed that Yazid said to Abu Bakr, "Will you ride or shall I get down?" Abu Bakr said, "I will not ride and you will not get down. I intend these steps of mine to be in the way of Allah."

Then Abu Bakr advised Yazid, "You will find a people who claim to have totally given themselves to Allah. Leave them to what they claim to have given themselves. You will find a people who have shaved the middle of their heads, strike what they have shaved with the sword.

"I advise you ten things| Do not kill women or children or an aged, infirm person. Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. Do not slaughter sheep or camels except for food. Do not burn bees and do not scatter them. Do not steal from the booty, and do not be cowardly."

  • Comment: Subhan`Allah see how Prophet Peace be upon him forbade to kill women and childeren and how beautiful is the advics of Abu Bakar Ra ( first caliph of Islam and the closest companion of Prophet peace be upon him), he even said "Do not cut down fruit-bearing trees. Do not destroy an inhabited place. Do not slaughter sheep or camels except for food. Do not burn bees and do not scatter them. Do not steal from the booty, and do not be cowardly." and still anti Islamic people use bad and harsh words against these great people?? I ask abul kasem now a days which leader advise like this??

Islam prohibits Rape of Women (slave or free)

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah: "Musaykah, a slave-girl of some Ansari, came and said: My master forces me to commit fornication. Thereupon the following verse was revealed: "But force not your maids to prostitution (when they desire chastity). (24:33)" (Translation of Sunan Abu Dawud, Divorce (Kitab Al-Talaq), Book 12, Number 2304)"

In an authentic narration from Sunan Al Bayhaqi,Book no. 72 Chapter no. 84 Hadith no. 18001 Maktaba Darul Baz Makkah Mukarramah 1994 It is mentioned:

[ 18001 ] أخبرنا أبو الحسين بن الفضل القطان أنبأ عبد الله بن جعفر بن درستويه ثنا يعقوب بن سفيان ثنا الحسن بن الربيع ح وأخبرنا أبو نصر بن قتادة أنبأ أبو الفضل بن خميرويه أنبأ أحمد بن نجدة ثنا الحسن بن الربيع ثنا عبد الله بن المبارك عن كهمس عن هارون بن الأصم قال بعث عمر بن الخطاب رضى الله تعالى عنه خالد بن الوليد في جيش فبعث خالد ضرار بن الأزور في سرية في خيل فأغاروا على حي من بني أسد فأصابوا امرأة عروسا جميلة فأعجبت ضرارا فسألها أصحابه فأعطوها إياه فوقع عليها فلما قفل ندم وسقط به في يده فلما رفع إلى خالد أخبره بالذي فعل فقال خالد فإني قد أجزتها لك وطيبتها لك قال لا حتى تكتب بذلك إلى عمر فكتب عمر أن أرضخه بالحجارة فجاء كتاب عمر رضى الله تعالى عنه وقد توفي فقال ما كان الله ليخزي ضرار بن الأزور

: Umar bin al-Khattab may Allah be pleased with him sent Khalid bin al-Walid in an army, hence Khalid sent Dharar bin al-Auwzwar in a squadron and they invaded a district belonging to the tribe of Bani Asad. They then captured a pretty bride, Dharar liked her hence he asked his companions to grant her to him and they did so. He then had sexual intercourse with her, when he completed his mission he felt guilty, and went to Khalid and told him about what he did. Khalid said: 'I permit you and made it lawful to you.' He said: 'No not until you write a message to Umar'. (Then they sent a message to Umar) and Umar answered that he (Dharar) should be stoned. By the time Umar's message was delivered, Dharar was dead. (Khalid) said: 'Allah didn't want to disgrace Dharar' (Translation Taken from article of Brother Bassam Zawadi 'Does Islam Permit Muslim Men to Rape Their Slave Girls?)

Source of Sunan Al Behaqi: http://www.iid-alraid.de/hadeethlib/Books/11/book556.htm

Source of Brother Bassam Zawadi's Article This is what he said after quoting this athar)

'http://www.call-to-monotheism.com/does_islam_permit_muslim_men_to_rape_their_slave_girls_

  • Notice that Umar ibn Al Khattab (the second caliph) ordered the man who captured the slave girl and had sex with her to be stoned for this crime, for he took the slave girl unjustly.
  • Do these critics who raise these arguments know Islam better than Umar ibn al Khattab?
  • We anticipate what our opponents might say in response. They will say that the scholars whom I just cited and the story of Umar ibn Al Khattab only refer to someone who raped a slave girl who did not belong to him, however one may rape the slave girl that is his property. Even though the story in Sunan Al Bayhaqi makes it clear that the man had sex with the girl after possessing her, we will accept this response only for the sake of argument.
  • It is nonsense to suggest that one could rape the slave girl he possesses because the Prophet (peace be upon him) warned us that we must take good care of those under our authority:
  • "There is no person to whom Allaah has given people to take care of, and he fails to take care of them properly, but he will not smell the fragrance of Paradise." (Saheeh Bukhari no. 6731; Saheeh Muslim, no. 142)

1) 'Umar ibn al-Ahwas (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say during his Farewell Pilgrimage:

"Verily, you have rights over your women, and your women have rights over you. As for your rights over your women, they are that they should not allow anyone to sit on your beds whom you dislike, or allow anyone into your houses whom you dislike. Verily, their rights over you are that you should treat them well with regard to their clothing and food." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 1163, and Ibn Maajah, 1851).(end quote from the article of Brother Bassam)

Brother Kevin Abdullah Karim replied to another anti islamic person sam shamoun, see here it is in detail: http://www.answering-christianity.com/karim/no_rape_of_female_slaves.htm

2) Related by Al-Daraqutni, Ibn Majah and Ahmad: “The Prophet said, “There shall be no infliction of harm on oneself or others".

‘Others’ includes all people, so also slavegirls ! Raping a slavegirl is clearly doing her harm (emotional and physical) which would be a big sin for a muslim to commit and violation of the above hadith. Moreover the prophet (peace be upon him) commanded muslims to treat their slaves well and with respect, which clearly proofs that rape of female slaves is forbidden in islam.

3) The prophet (peace be upon him) said:Your servants and your slaves are your brothers. Anyone who has slaves should give them from what he eats and wears. He should not charge them with work beyond their capabilities. If you must set them to hard work, in any case I advise you to help them.[Source: Bukhari, Iman, 22; Adab, 44; Muslim, Iman, 38–40; Abu Dawud, Adab, 124]

4) Ali reported that the last words of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, were: "The prayer! The prayer! Fear Allah concerning your slaves ! "Source: Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari , Nr. 158.

5) Jabir ibn 'Abdullah said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, advised that slaves should be well-treated. He said, 'Feed them from what you eat and clothe them from what you wear. Do not punish what Allah has created.' "Source: Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari , Nr. 188.

6) Sallam ibn 'Amr reported from one of the Companions of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Your slaves are your brothers, so treat him well. Ask for their help in what is too much for you and help them in what is too much for them."Source: Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari , Nr. 190.

7) Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "The slave has his food and clothing. Do not burden a slave with work which he is incapable of doing."Source: Al-Adab al-Mufrad Al-Bukhari , Nr. 192.

8) Not one of you should [ when introducing someone ] say ‘This is my slave’ , ‘This is my concubine’. He should call them ‘my daughter’ or ‘my son’ or ‘my brother’.Source: Ibn Hanbal, Musnad, 2 ,4

 


 

Now let us see what the Abul Kasem is talking about.
 

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3432:

 
Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (Allah her pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hanain Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah's Messenger (may peace te upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:" And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (iv. 24)" (i. e. they were lawful for them when their 'Idda period came to an end).

 


 

First thing to note is A slave woman with whom a man has intercourse is known as a sariyyah from the word sirr, which itself means marriage.

Commentary of Sahih Muslim by Imam Nawawi says under the hadith of Abu Sa`id

1) Imam Nawawi said:

واعلم أن مذهب الشافعي ومن قال بقوله من العلماء أن المسبية من عبدة الأوثان وغيرهم من الكفار الذين لا كتاب لهم لا يحل وطؤها بملك اليمين حتى تسلم فما دامت على دينها فهي محرمة , فهؤلاء المسبيات كن من مشركي العرب عبدة الأوثان , فيؤول هذا الحديث وشبهه على أنهن أسلمن , وهذا التأويل لا بد منه والله أعلم

And know that the school of thought of Al Shafi'i and who agreed with him from amongst the scholars have stated that the idol worshipper and those whom have no religious book cannot be approached for sexual intercourse unless they convert to Islam first. As long as they are following their religion they are forbidden to approach. These slave girls (i.e. in the particular narration) are idol worshippers. This hadith and whatever resembles it must be interpreted as implying that the slave girls accepted Islam. There is no other choice but to interpret the hadiths this way and Allah knows best. (Translation taken from Does Islam Permit Muslim Men to Rape Their Slave Girls? By Bassam Zawadi)

2) Ibn Qudaamah said فإن زَوَّج أمته حَرُم عليه الاستمتاع ، .. قال : فأما تحريم الاستمتاع بها فلا شك فيه ولا اختلاف ، فإنها قد صارت مباحة للزوج ، ولا تحِلُّ المرأة لرجلين ، فإن وَطِئَها لَزِمَهُ الإثم والتعزير.

وقال : قال أحمد يجلد ولا يُرجم . يعني أنه يعزَّر بالجلد ..

if he marries off his slave woman, then it is forbidden for him to have intercourse with her… There is no doubt and no dispute concerning the prohibition on his having intercourse with her, for she is now permissible to her husband, and no woman can be permissible to two men. If he has intercourse with her then he is guilty of sin and must be punished. Ahmad said, he should be flogged but not stoned, i.e., his punishment (ta’zeer) should take the form of flogging. [al-Mughni Vol. 9, p. 497.]

3) According to Imam Abu Hanifah Rahimullah if both the husband and wife are captivated together, their marriage tie still continues; they will not be separated.

4) Shaykh al-Shanqeeti (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

وسبب الملك بالرق : هو الكفر ، ومحاربة الله ورسوله ، فإذا أقدر اللهُ المسلمينَ المجاهدين الباذلين مُهَجهم وأموالهم وجميع قواهم وما أعطاهم الله لتكون كلمة الله هي العليا على الكفار : جعلهم ملكاً لهم بالسبي إلا إذا اختار الإمام المنَّ أو الفداء لما في ذلك من المصلحة للمسلمين .

The reason why a person may be taken as a slave is his being a kaafir and waging war against Allaah and His Messenger. If Allaah enables the Muslims who are striving and sacrificing their lives and their wealth and all that Allaah has given them to make the word of Allaah supreme over the kaafirs, then He allows them to enslave the kuffaar when they capture them, unless the ruler chooses to free them or to ransom them, if that serves the interests of the Muslims.[Adwa’ al-Bayaan, 3/387]

Shaykh al-Shanqeeti (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: فإن قيل : إذا كان الرقيق مسلماً فما وجه ملكه بالرق ؟ مع أن سبب الرق الذي هو الكفر ومحاربة الله ورسله قد زال .

فالجواب : أن القاعدة المعروفة عند العلماء وكافة العقلاء : أن الحق السابق لا يرفعه الحق اللاحق ، والأحقية بالأسبقية ظاهرة لا خفاء بها .

فالمسلمون عندما غنموا الكفار بالسبي : ثبت لهم حق الملكية بتشريع خالق الجميع ، وهو الحكيم الخبير ، فإذا استقر هذا الحق وثبت ، ثم أسلم الرقيق بعد ذلك كان حقه في الخروج من الرق بالإسلام مسبوقاً بحق المجاهد الذي سبقت له الملكية قبل الإسلام ، وليس من العدل والإنصاف رفع الحق السابق بالحق المتأخر عنه كما هو معلوم عند العقلاء .

نعم ، يحسن بالمالك ويجمل به أن يعتقه إذا أسلم ، وقد أمر الشارع بذلك ورغَّب فيه ، وفتح له الأبواب الكثيرة كما قدمنا ـ يشير بذلك إلى كون الله تعالى قد جعل الدخول في الإسلام شرطا في عتق الرقبة في أبواب الكفارات ـ

فسبحان الحكيم الخبير ( وتمَّت كلمة ربِّك صدقاً وعدلا لا مبدِّل لكلماته وهو السميع العليم ) الأنعام/115.

فقوله { صدقاً } أي : في الأخبار ، وقوله { عدلاً } أي : في الأحكام .

ولا شك أن من ذلك العدل : الملك بالرق وغيره من أحكام القرآن .

وكم من عائب قولاً صحيحاً وآفته من الفهم السقيم

If it is said: If the slave is a Muslim, how can he be kept as a slave if the reason for which people may be taken as slaves is if they are kaafirs who are waging war against Allaah and His Messenger? The answer is that the basic principle which is well known to the scholars and all wise people is that a right that is already established by shar’i means cannot be superceded by rights that are established later on.

When the Muslims take prisoners of war, they are given the right to enslave them by the law of the Creator of all, and He is the All-Wise, All-Aware. If this right is established, then the slave becomes a Muslim after that, his right to be freed from slavery because of his Islam is superceded by the right of the mujaahid whose right to enslave him took effect before he was a Muslim. It is not just or fair to waive the former right because of a latter right, as is well known to all wise people.

Yes, it is good for the owner to set him free if he becomes Muslim, and Islam enjoins that and encourages it, and opens the door to doing so in many ways – he is referring to the fact that Allaah has decreed that when expiation takes the form of freeing a slave, the slave in question should be a Muslim –

Glory be to the All Wise, All Aware: “And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can change His Words. And He is the All Hearer, the All Knower” [al-An’aam 6:115].

“In truth” means in what He has told us; “in justice” means in His rulings.

Undoubtedly that justice includes owning slaves and other rulings that are mentioned in the Qur’aan. [Adwa’ al-Bayaan, 3/389.]

 


 

Abul Kasem said

 

 
 
Muhammad allowed his men to rape the women captured in raids (Sahih Bukhari, 3.46.718). However, after capturing the women, Muslims faced a dilemma. They wanted to have sex with them but also wanted to return them for ransom and therefore did not want to make them pregnant. Some of these women were already married. Their husbands had managed to escape when taken by surprise and were still alive. The raiders considered the possibility of coitus interruptus (withdrawing from intercourse prior to ejaculation). Unsure of the best course of action, they went to Muhammad for counsel.

Abul Kasem said
 

Abu Saeed said: ―We went out with Allâh's Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allâh's Apostle who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist." [Bukhari, Volume-5,Book-59, Number-459 ]

 

Notice that Muhammad does not forbid raping women captured in war. Instead, he indicates that when Allâh intends to create anything, nothing can prevent it. In other words, not even the absence of semen can prevent it. So Muhammad is telling his men that coitus interruptus would be futile and ill-advised because it would be an attempt to thwart the irresistible will of Allâh. Muhammad does not say a word against the forced insemination of these captive females. In fact, by criticizing coitus interruptus, in effect he supported forced insemination.

 
In the Qur‘an, Muhammad‘s god made it legal to have intercourse with slave women, the so-called ―right hand possessions,‖ even if they were married before their capture. [Quran 4:24,33:5]

Firstly it is already stated Al Shafi'i and who agreed with him from amongst the scholars have stated that the idol worshipper and those whom have no religious book cannot be approached for sexual intercourse unless they convert to Islam first. As long as they are following their religion they are forbidden to approach. So here This hadith and whatever resembles it must be interpreted as implying that the slave girls accepted Islam.

Secondly No where it says Sahaba Raped (and we already quoted Athar of Umar bin Khattab ra where he ordered Dharar should be stoned) (Dharar had sexual intercourse with the slave)

Thirdly Imam Al Shaafi'i said: وإذا اغتصب الرجل الجارية ثم وطئها بعد الغصب وهو من غير أهل الجهالة أخذت منه الجارية والعقر وأقيم عليه حد الزنا

"If a man acquires by force a slave-girl, then has sexual intercourse with her after he acquires her by force, and if he is not excused by ignorance, then the slave-girl will be taken from him, he is required to pay the fine, and he will receive the punishment for illegal sexual intercourse." (Imam Al Shaafi'i, Kitaabul Umm, Volume 3, page 253 translation taken from the article " Does Islam Permit Muslim Men to Rape Their Slave Girls? By Bassam Zawadi)

These things are already cleared before.

Then Abul Kasem argued on Juwariyah, Safiyah and Rayhanah RadhiAllahanhuma

First of all They were Mother of believers as Allaah said in the Qur’aan “The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers…” [al-Ahzaab 33:6].

a) Regarding Juwariyah abul kasem came up with same Arguments which Ali sina had here http://www.faithfreedom.org/Articles/sina/Juwairiyah.htm

Brother Bassam Zawadi Already Replied to above article here http://www.call-to-monotheism.com/rebuttal_to_ali_sina_s_article__juwairiyah_

So there is no need to reply these bogus arguments to which Brother Bassam already replied

Just in Short Hafiz Ibne Kathir said

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was thinking of how to save her(Juwariyah) and all her tribe from an ignoble fate. By marrying Juwayriyya, the Banu Mustaliq would be able to enter Islam with honor, and with the humiliation of their recent defeat removed, so that it would no longer be felt necessary by them to embark on a war of vengeance that would have continued until one of the two parties had been annihilated. As soon as the marriage was announced, all the booty that had been taken from the Banu Mustaliq was returned, and all the captives were set free, for they were now the in laws of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Thus A'isha once said of Juwayriyya, "I know of no woman who was more of a blessing to her people than Juwayriyya bint al-Harith." After they were married, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) changed her name was Barra to Juwayriyya.

Wives of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) by Hafiz Ibne Kathir, no:8.Juwayriya bint al-Harith

b) Regarding Safiyah RadhiAllahanha

It is mentioned in Al Raheeq al Makhtoom page no: 511 (urdu version)

Prophet peace be upon him saw a green mark on the face of safiyah ra and said what is this? she said:before you came to khaybar i had a dream that the moon came to my lap from its place, By God i never knew about you (O messenger of Allah) but when i told my Husband he slapped me and said you are wishing the king of Madeenah(i.e Prophet peace be upon him)
(Zaad al Maad of Ibn Qayyam Joziyah vol 2 page page 137)

Reply by Ibne Kathir, he said

Some people may have wondered how it was that Safiyya could accept Islam and marry the Prophet when her father had been his bitter enemy, and when bloody battles had taken place between the Jews and the Muslims. The answer may be found in what she has related of her early life as the daughter of the chief of the Banu Nadir.
.
She said, (may Allah be pleased with her): "I was my father's favorite and also a favorite with my uncle Yasir. They could never see me with one of their children without picking me up. When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Medina, my father and my uncle went to see him. It was very early in the morning and between dawn and sunrise. They did not return until the sun was setting. They came back worn out and depressed, walking with slow, heavy steps. I smiled to them as I always did, but neither of them took any notice of me because they were so miserable. I head Abu Yasir ask my father, 'Is it him?' 'Yes, it is.' 'Can you recognize him? Can you verify it?' 'Yes, I can recognize him too well.' 'What do you feel towards him?' 'Enmity, enmity as long as I live.'(end)
.
and then ibn e kathir said

It was for these reasons that Huyayy secretly decided to oppose and fight the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) while in public he and the other leaders of the Jews made peace treaties with the Muslims and the Jews broke as soon as it seemed a favorable time to do so. Although Safiyya was Huyayy's daughter, she had a pure heart and had always wanted to worship her Creator and Lord, the One who had sent Moses, to whom she was related, and Jesus, and finally Muhammad, may Allah be pleased with all of them. Thus as soon as the opportunity arose, not only to follow the last Prophet, but also to be married to him, she took it.(end)

http://www.islamawareness.net/Muhammed/ibn_kathir_wives.html

so above is clear Her father and Uncle told her that they saw a Prophet and recognise him, they just went against him because he was from Arab, then Safiyah ra had a dream regarding Prophet peace be upon him, she knew he is a Prophet peace be upon him, its clear why she accepted Islam and married Prophet peace be upon him

"Safiyyah, the Wife of Muhammad" http://www.answering-christianity.com/bassam_zawadi/safiyyah_the_wife_of_the_prophet.htm

c) and regarding Rayhaanah bint Sham’oon al-Nadariyyah. It is mentioned in Al Raheeq al Makhtoom

For himself, the Prophet [pbuh] selected Rehana bint ‘Amr bin Khanaqah, manumitted and married her in the year 6 Hijri. She died shortly after the farewell pilgrimage and was buried in Al-Baqi‘[Ibn Hisham 2/245; Talqeeh Fuhum Ahl Al-Athar p.12].Al Raheeq al Makhtoom, Invading Banu Quraiza
