Since 9/11, we have observed that certain groups have tried to capitalize on that tragedy by attacking Islam from all sides. Unfortunately, even some Christian TV channels have joined in this Islam-bashing and are trying to tarnish the image of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny).
One of the most common themes in their attack against Islam is on the Prophet Muhammad’s many wives.
We wish first to discuss the concept of polygamy in Islam followed by the marriages of the Prophet.
Marriage in Islam is a sign of God’s power and glory. The Qur’ãn says:
“From His signs is that He has created for you spouses from yourselves so that you may get peace [and tranquility] through them; and He placed between you love and mercy. In these are signs for the people who reflect.” (Surah ar-Room, 30:21)
