Description from the publisher:
You have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar. (Qur'an 33:21)
In The Wives of the Prophet Muhammad Faridah Debas provides an account of the Prophet’s matrimonial life in the light of the Qur’an and Sunnah while dispelling misrepresentations by Orientalists, which are commonly spread by the media in the US and in Canada, where Debas lives.
This book traces the Prophet’s marriages from his monogamous 25 year marriage to Lady Khadeejah, to his multiple marriages to the Mothers of the Believers after Khadeejah’s death. Debas contextualizes his marriages within his noble mission of spreading Islam, and illustrates the wisdom of the Prophet as a messenger of Allah and a devoted, loving husband.
