1. Khadijah bint Khuwalid (radiAllahu anha) bint Asad bin Abdul-Uzza bin Qusai, was the first wife of the prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam). He married her at the age of 25 years old, and she remained with him until the Almighty Allah chose him as His Messenger. She was his trusted confident. She died three years before the emigration, and this is according to the correct view.

2. Sawdah bint Zam`ah bin Qais bin Abd Shams bin Abd Wadd bin Nasr bin Malik bin Hisl bin Aamir bin Luai (radiAllahu anha) was married to the Prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) after the death of Khadijah (radiAllahu anhaa) in Makkah, before the migration. Sawdah (radiAllahu anhaa) had been previously married to as-Sakran bin Amr the brother of Suhail bin Amr. She grew old with the prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam), and he wanted to divorce her but she gave her allotted days to Aishah (radiAllahu anhaa) so he did not divorce her.

3. Aishah bint Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (radiAllahu anhaa). The Messenger of Allah(sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) mairried Aishah (radiAllahu anhaa) in Makkah two years before the migration. Some say it was three years. She was six years old at the time. Some say that she was seven, but the first view is what is correct. The began to live together seven months after the migration in Al-Madinah. Some say it was eighteen months. At the time she was nine.

The prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) died when she was only eighteen years old, and she passed away in Al-Madinah during the year 58 AH. Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) led the funeral prayer for her, and she was buried in Al-Baqi, according to her wishes. The prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) did not marry a virgin besides her. Her nickname was Umm Abdullah, and it is reported thet she was carrying the child of the prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) but that she had a miscarriage, but that is not confirmed.

4. Hafsah bint Umar bin Al-Khattab (radiAllahu anhaa) had been married to Khunais bin Hudhafah (radiAllahu anhu), one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam), he witnessed the Battle of Badr, and died in Al-Madinah. After his death, the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) married Hafsah (radiAllahu anhaa), and it is narrated that the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) wanted to divorce her but the angel Jibril (alaihi sallaam) came and said to him, "Indeed Allah orders you to return to Hafsah because she regularly fasts, and she will be your wife in Paradise."

Uqbah bin Aamir al-Juhani said, "The Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam) divorced Hafsah bint Umar. Umar (radiAllahu anhu) threw dust on his head saying, 'What will Allah do with 'Umar and his daughter after this?' Jibril (alaihi sallaam) descended the next morning and said to the Prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi was sallaam), 'Indeed Allah orders you to return to Hafsah out of mercy for Umar (radiAllahu anhu)."

Reporters differ about when she died, some say in the 27th year after migration, while others say it was the 28th year AH during the year of the conquests in Africa.

We will continue next week and then the list will be updated inshaAllah...

When Zaid divorced her, Allah, above the heavens, married her to the Messenger of Allah (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam). He never concluded a marriage contract with her, and it is authentically narrated that she used to say to the other wives of the prophet (sallaAllahu alaihi wa sallaam): "All of you were given in marriage by your fathers, but Allah gave me in marriage from above the seven heavens." She died in al-Madinah in the 20th year AH and was buried at al-Baqi.
