THE PROPHET’S WIVES:
THE MOTHERS OF THE BELIEVERS
Your safety matters. Due to COVID-19, this MasterClass will be conducted online on Google Meet.
Ibn Jurayj said: “‘Ubayd ibn ‘Umayr and I used to visit ‘Aishah while she was residing at Jawf Thabir. I asked ‘Ata-: “What was her Hijab?” ‘Ata- said: “She was wearing an old Turkish veil, and that was the only thing which was a screen between us and her. I saw a pink cover on her.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Kitab Al-Hajj]
The imminent birth of the final prophetic age in human history had left a man shattered and trembling. He saw something that was just totally out of this world and he went running back home, fuelled by nothing but fear. He found his source of relief and respite at home, and from one person. That was Khadijah bint Khuwaylid.
The popular saying goes, that behind every successful man, is a woman. Taking the case of the wives of The Prophet ﷺ, we can certainly tweak that statement to read: “Behind every successful Muslim civilization, are successful Muslim women.”
The wives of The Prophet ﷺ were held to a high standard, not primarily by the society, but more so, by God Himself. God spoke to the wives of The Prophet ﷺ on several instances, during key moments of The Prophet’s ﷺ life, and in every one of those interactions, it is clear to us that God has elevated them beyond other women of the Muslim community, not only by the mere fact that they were wives of The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, but also by the reality that these women would
continue to serve as role models for generations upon generations of Muslim women over time, all the way, till the ends of times.
Points Of Discussion Include:
• Life As The Prophet’s Wife: A Study of Prophetic Narrations Concerning The Prophet’s Wives
• The Best of Women: The Virtues of The Prophet’s Wives
• The Women Who Strengthened Islam: The Contributions of The Prophet’s Wives
• Ummahat Al-Mu-minin: The Role Models for Today’s Wives
At the very end of that prophetic age, the departure of the final prophet of God, was at the lap of the woman who had journeyed with him ﷺ throughout his ﷺ prophetic career. She knew The Prophet ﷺ, inside out. She blossomed into a leading scholar of the religion, and following The Prophet’s ﷺ return to God, the Muslim community relied upon her astute intelligence and know-how on the intricate details of God’s religion, to solve issues on the understanding of the religion. An expert in the dynamic religious sciences of Hadith, Tafsir and Islamic Law, she is undoubtedly a beacon of knowledge for the Muslim Ummah, deserving of in-depth study and heartfelt appreciation for her immense contributions that we still benefit from today. That was ‘Aishah bint Abi Bakr.
In today’s world, where we seem to find ourselves in diasporic confusion over the meaning of gender and what it entails, we need clarity, for our women, on what it means to be a woman, as individuals and as a building block of society, and more so, on what it means to be a Muslim woman who strives for comprehensive excellence, in this life, and the next.
