It is and should be the desire of every Muslim to know about the wives and children of Rasulullah (s.a.w). All the muhadditheen and historians agree that Rasulullah (s.a.w) married eleven wives,

1) Sayyidatina Khadeeja  ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

2) Sayyidatina Sauda bint Zam'ah ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

3) Sayyidatina  Aisha bint Sayyidina Abu bakr ( may Allah be pleased with them both

 

4) Sayyidatina  Hafsa bint  Sayyidina Umar al Khattab ( may Allah be pleased with them both)

 

5) Sayyidatina Zaynab bint Khuzayma ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

6) Sayyidatina Ummu Salamah( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

7) Sayyidatina Zaynab bint Jahash ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

8) Sayyidatina  Juwayriyya bint Harith ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

9) Sayyidatina  Ummu Habeeba bint Sayyidina Abu Sufyaan( may Allah be pleased with them both)

 

10) Sayyidatina  Saffiya bint Huyay ( may Allah be pleased with her)

 

11) Sayyidatina  Maymoona bint Haarith  ( may Allah be pleased with her)
