Holy prophet Hadhrat Muhammad (PBUH&HP) had 11 wives:

1- hadhrat khadija tul kubra salamullah alaiha, her title was Tahira she was mother of Hadhrat fatima tuz zahra (sa) and the richest lady of arab world who showered all her wealth for islam.she herself sent her proposal to holy prophet (that she wanted to marry him) when he had not proclaimed his prophethood. she alone has the honour that holy prophet did not marry another women during her life time. she was the first lady in the women world who first of all certified holy prophet's prophethood.

2- hadhrat soda (ra) belonged to tribe amir from Quraish

Holy prophet (PBUH&HP)'s son ibrahim died in his childhood and on the same occasion infidels taunt holy prophet "abtar" (childless) due to which holy prophet grieved so allah almighty revealed surah kauther for his consolation: "O prophet we have given you kauther. Pray to your Lord and sacrifice to him. Your enemy shall remain childless". tafseer of first ayah of this surah says that allah says o prophet we have given you off spring with abundance thats why there is no any part of the world where holy prophet's progeny (Sayyed) are not present.thats why holy prophet said which is also reported by ulmae ahle sunnah that allah has made off spring of every prophet in his sulb while my (holy prophet) progeny in hadhrat Ali's (as) sulb. (sharah muslim by Mullah mobeen discussion of aal).

For that very reason hadhrat Imam Hassan alaihe salam and hadhrat Imam Hussain alaihesalam are called holy prophet (PBUH&HP)'s sons according to ayah mobahila.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
