Mothers of the Believers (may Allah be pleased with them)

June 6, 2011

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Q: Who are the Mothers of the Believers? How many are they?

A: There are nine, and they are as follows: ‘Aishah, Hafsah, Um Salamah, Um Habibah bint Abu Sufyan, Juwayriyah bint Al-Harith, Sawdah bint Zam‘ah, Zaynab bint Jahsh, Safiyyah bint Huyay and Maymunah bint Al-Harith.
These are the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) whom he left after his death. However, among the Mothers of the Believers is also Khadijah bint Khuwaylid (may Allah be pleased with her) who gave birth to most of the Prophet’s children, and she died during his lifetime and before the Hijrah (the Prophet’s migration to Madinah).

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
