    Nadia. got a reaction from farwahq in Shiaa but don't accept mutta marriage   
    I understand where you're coming from sister and I agree with you on some points. I don't really think there is anything wrong with mutah in itself, as long as a man doesn't do it when he has a wife just as a way to justify cheating on her. I may be wrong but I think that just as a woman can decide if her husband can or cannot have a second wife, she should be able to say no to her man doing a mutah contract. Some people may think I'm wrong but when you think about it I think you will agree. Let's say a woman's husband goes away for a couple of months and then he does mutah to fullfill his sexual desires, I at least would not like to be married to such a man just as I would never accept cheating and I think many women (and men) would agree with me

    Salam,
    It's really not that hard to stop sending pics 'accidentally' to guys without hijab. And if it's really so hard and you don't think before sending, then delete the guys from your snap, there is no point in having them as friends on there if you know you accidentally post them on your story. Also, read about the true meaning of hijab, and you will understand that it is not only the cloth on your head but also the rest of your body, and the way you act, speak etc. If you understand the true purpose of hijab you will be hesitant about chatting to guys, and hopefully more aware of what you send to who.

    The sermon was widely known. Therefore Imam Ali a.s. did not have to repeat it as the word of the Prophet himself s.a.w.a.s. is sufficient.  
    However, the words and deeds of others than him s.a.w.a.s. are irrelevant and cannot change the truth.

    "Today I have perfected your religion and completed my bounty upon
    you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion." (Quran 5:3)

    (9) Nuzul al-Quran, by al-Hafiz Abu Nu'aym narrated on the authority
    The Quran is clear on that without the Prophet (saw) saying that Imam Ali (as) was to be his successor, Islam would not be complete. 
    Which of you, then, will help me in this, and be my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you?’ All remained silent, except for the youthful ʿAlī who spoke up: ‘O Prophet of God, I will be thy helper in this.’ The Prophet then placed his hand on ʿAlī’s neck and said, ‘This is my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you. Hearken unto him and obey him.’
    (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, tr. A Guilaume, The Life of Muhammad, 118)
    Three things were revealed to me regarding ʿAlī: he is the leader of the Muslims, the guide of the pious and chief of the radiantly devout (sayyidu’l-muslimīn, imāmu’l-muttaqīn, wa qāʾidu’l-ghurra’lmuḥajjalīn).
    Prophet Muhammad,
    (al-Hakim al-Naysaburi, Al-Mustadrak ‘ala’l-Sahihayn, Beirut 2002, 936, No. 4723)
    [To ‘Ali]: Are you not happy that you should have in relation to me the rank of Aaron in relation to Moses, except that there is no prophet after me.
    Prophet Muhammad,
    (Ahmad b. Shu‘ayb al-Nasa’i, Khasa’is Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali b. Abi Talib, Tehran 1998, 76)
     
    We also has ayahs of the Quran where in sunni tafsir they are agreed upon that this was revealed about Imam Ali (as), for example:
    Certainly your Master is Allah and His Messenger and those who believe who eshtablish prayer and give charity while they bow. And who ever takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe as a guardian, so surely the party of Allah will be victorious. (Qur’an 5:55-56)
    This verse is clearly referring to Imam Ali (as), as he once gave his ring to a beggar while he was bowing down in prayer. Sunni references:

    (13) al-Awsat, by Tabarani, narrated from Ammar Yasir
    (14) Ibn Mardawayh, on the authority of Ibn Abbas
    “O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority from among you.” (Qur’an, Surah Nisa 4:59)
    This verse refers to the 'Ulil Amr', meaning those in authority. And who are they? They are the twelve Imams and there is a hadith in Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal which confirms this:
    Abdullah ibn Masud narrates: I heard Rasulallah (saw) say: there will be 12 caliphs after me, like the 12 nuqaba' (chiefs) of the Children of Israel. 
    The 12 chiefs he is referring to are mentioned in the following verse in the Quran:
    (5:12) And, indeed, God took a solemn pledge from the Children of Israel and raised up from among them twelve leaders and representatives (one from each tribe, to look after their affairs and as spiritual mentors).
    The twelve Imams are therefore the Ulil Amr, as well as the 12 caliphs that Rasulallah (saw) mentions, since he even described them as one of the two caliphs he is leaving behind:
    Zaid Ibn Thabit narrated from the Messenger of Allah (P): “Surely, I leave behind two Caliphs for you: the Book of Allah, a linked rope between heaven and earth, and my noble family, and truly these two will not be separated until they return to me at the Pool (of Kauthar).” (Kanzul-Ummal, vol. 1, p.44).

    Asslamu alaykum,
    Tawassul is not haram, actually it is one of the things that both the sunni and shia schools of thought agree upon, it is the wahhabis who have declared it haram because they do not understand the religion of Islam. I will explain to you why tawassul is not haram.
    First of all, tawassul is not praying to other than Allah swt, but rather asking someone beloved to Allah to make dua for you. Then you might say that Imam Ali (as) or the other Imams (as) are dead, but the Quran proves us otherwise. In Surah 2 verse 154 Allah swt says that those who are martyrs are not dead, and as we know, all Imams except Imam Mahdi were martyred: 
    And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.
    Another ayah:
    Think not of those who are martyred in the way of Allah as dead. Nay! They are living, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord.”(Qur’an 3:169)
    Clearly this ayah tells us that those who are martyred are not 'dead' as we would think, but alive but we are unaware of them, therefore, asking Imam Ali (as), Imam Hussain (as) or any other Imam or someone killed in the way of Allah swt is not haram or shirk. It is rather very clear that this is permissible and completely fine to do, if you are aware of the fact that the person you ask is not the one granting your dua. Tawassul is a concept of Islam because we as servants of Allah swt can ask him to grant us things, and he can answer, but the dua of the masomeen, who are beloved to Allah swt, will always be stronger than the dua of a regular muslim.
    It is very clear that the concept of tawassul does not include belief in that the Prophet (saw) or Imams (as) have any independent power from Allah. You can read more in depth here: https://www.al-islam.org/shiite-encyclopedia-ahlul-bayt-dilp-team/tawassul-resorting-intermediary
    As for the issue of tatbir, there is not one view on this in the shia school of thought. Some maraja3 prohibit it, while others such as Sayed Sadiq Shirazi encourage it, and others do not have a specific fatwa or view on tatbir. Here are views of different scholars:
    Grand Ayatullah Khoei: “If blood matam and hitting oneself with chains, which are practiced in Muharram, cause serious harm, or harm or ridicule the religion and sect then it is impermissible.”
    Al-Masa’il al-Shar’iyah, istifta’at Imam Khoei, al-Ibadat and al-Tariq al-Najah, v.2, p.445
    Sayed Ali al-Sistani: 
    Question:
    I want to know the status of beating our backs with knives (Zanjeer) on the day of Ashura? What is it’s status in our Fiqh?
    The philosophy of mourning during ‘Ashura’, is to respect the symbols of religion and remember the suffering of Imam Hussain, his companions, and his uprising to defend Islam and prevent the destruction of the religion by the Bani Umayyad dynasty. These rites must be done in such a way that in addition to serving that purpose, it draws the attention of others to these lofty goals. So those actions which are not understandable and cause misunderstandings and contempt for the religion must be avoided.
    Ayatullah Khomeini: “Mourning and chest beating for the “unjustly treated” (the victims of the tragedy of Karbala) is amongst the best of religious practices, but the participants must exert due diligence to avoid wounds and the flowing of blood. If such actions bring about disrepute to the religion then they are forbidden. At any rate it is reccomended that the participants refrain from such actions.”
    Sayed Sadiq Shirazi: As for the ritual of Tatbir (Qama Zani) it is Halal and Mustahab.
    As you can see there are different views on the topic, but most of them are either against the very intense tatbir or prohibit it because it can give us shias a bad name. And then there are some scholars who do not prohibit it at all. 
    And lastly, your claim about us shias putting more emphasis on the Ahlulbayt rather than the Propthet (saw), is not true. To follow the sunnah of Rasoolallah (saw) is to follow and LOVE the Ahlulbayt (as). We emphasize the Ahlulbayt because the Prophet (saw) told us to do so. In Sunni sources you have different versions of hadith al Thaqalayn for example. 
    /../ I am leaving behind two precious things (thaqalayn) among you. The first of the two is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light. So get hold of the Book of Allah and adhere to it." Then he urged and motivated (us) regarding the Book of Allah. Then he said, "And my Ahlul Bayt (family). I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt"'" ....
    (Sahih Muslim, part 7, Kitab fada'il al-­Sahabah [Maktabat wa Matba’at Muhammad ‘Ali Subayh wa Awladuhu: Cairo] pp. 122-123.)
    Verily, I have left behind two precious things amongst you, one of which is greater than the other. The Book of Allah, the Exalted, and my ‘itrah (kindred). So watch out how you treat these two after me, for verily they will not separate from each other until they come back to me by the side of the Pond.' Then he said 'Verily, Allah, the Almighty and the Glorious, is my master (mawla) and I am the master of every believer (mu'min).' Then he took ‘Ali, may God be pleased with him, by the hand and said, 'This (‘Ali) is the master of whomever I am his master. O God, love whoever loves him and be the enemy of his enemy.'" 
    (Bukhari and Muslim)
    So as you can see the Prophet (saw) himself put a huge emphasis on the Ahlulbayt (as) and there are numerous ahadith where he speaks about the members of his family, for example Imam Ali (as). 
    The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said: "Had there been any soul on the whole earth better than Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan and al-Husain, Allah would have commanded me to take them along with me to Mubahala. But as they were superior in dignity and respect to all human be beings, Allah confined His choice on them only for participation in Mubahala." Sunni reference: Tafsir al-Baidhawi, under the commentary of Verse 3:61
     
    The Messenger of Allah said: "Whosoever wishes to live and die like me and enter that heaven (after death), which my lord has promised me, namely, the ever lasting heaven should acknowledge Ali as his patron after me, and after him he should acknowledge the sons of Ali, because they are the people who will never leave you outside the door of guidance nor will they let you enter the door of misguidance." Sunni references: Kanz al-Ummal, by al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, v6, p155, Tradition #2578
     
    "Verily Allah has dedicated my wage (of prophethood) to love of my Ahlul-Bayt, and I shall question you about it on the day of judgment."
    Sunni references: Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p26, al-Sirah, by al-Mala
     
    The Messenger of Allah said: "He who loves me and loves these two: al-Hasan and al-Husayn, and loves their father and mother, he will be with me in Paradise."

    The core sentence of this hadith and the answer to the main question is the Quranic verse the believerse were asked about:

    Am I not more worthier of believers than themselves? And they replied: Yes, you are worthier than ourselves.

    It is refering to the following verse:

    The Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves, and his wives are [in the position of] their mothers. And those of [blood] relationship are more entitled [to inheritance] in the decree of Allah than the [other] believers and the emigrants, except that you may do to your close associates a kindness [through bequest]. That was in the Book inscribed.

    Quran 33:6 Translation: Saheeh International

    Now let's see what the famous sunni Tafsir Ibn Kathir tells us about this verse:
     

    It is clear that the verse is about authority in the first place and not love friendship or whatever.

    There is nothing in the narration that give the word "mawla" another meaning, like when we say:

    " I am your master, and this Ali is your master who you should love"

    Immediately after the Prophet (PBUH&HF) finished his speech, the following
    verse of Holy Quran was revealed:
    "Today I have perfected your religion and completed my bounty upon
    you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion." (Quran 5:3)

    (9) Nuzul al-Quran, by al-Hafiz Abu Nu'aym narrated on the authority
    The Quran is clear on that without the Prophet (saw) saying that Imam Ali (as) was to be his successor, Islam would not be complete. 
    Which of you, then, will help me in this, and be my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you?’ All remained silent, except for the youthful ʿAlī who spoke up: ‘O Prophet of God, I will be thy helper in this.’ The Prophet then placed his hand on ʿAlī’s neck and said, ‘This is my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you. Hearken unto him and obey him.’
    (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, tr. A Guilaume, The Life of Muhammad, 118)
    Three things were revealed to me regarding ʿAlī: he is the leader of the Muslims, the guide of the pious and chief of the radiantly devout (sayyidu’l-muslimīn, imāmu’l-muttaqīn, wa qāʾidu’l-ghurra’lmuḥajjalīn).
    Prophet Muhammad,
    (al-Hakim al-Naysaburi, Al-Mustadrak ‘ala’l-Sahihayn, Beirut 2002, 936, No. 4723)
    [To ‘Ali]: Are you not happy that you should have in relation to me the rank of Aaron in relation to Moses, except that there is no prophet after me.
    Prophet Muhammad,
    (Ahmad b. Shu‘ayb al-Nasa’i, Khasa’is Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali b. Abi Talib, Tehran 1998, 76)
     
    We also has ayahs of the Quran where in sunni tafsir they are agreed upon that this was revealed about Imam Ali (as), for example:
    Certainly your Master is Allah and His Messenger and those who believe who eshtablish prayer and give charity while they bow. And who ever takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe as a guardian, so surely the party of Allah will be victorious. (Qur’an 5:55-56)
    This verse is clearly referring to Imam Ali (as), as he once gave his ring to a beggar while he was bowing down in prayer. Sunni references:

    (14) Ibn Mardawayh, on the authority of Ibn Abbas
    “O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority from among you.” (Qur’an, Surah Nisa 4:59)
    This verse refers to the 'Ulil Amr', meaning those in authority. And who are they? They are the twelve Imams and there is a hadith in Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal which confirms this:
    Abdullah ibn Masud narrates: I heard Rasulallah (saw) say: there will be 12 caliphs after me, like the 12 nuqaba' (chiefs) of the Children of Israel. 
    The 12 chiefs he is referring to are mentioned in the following verse in the Quran:
    (5:12) And, indeed, God took a solemn pledge from the Children of Israel and raised up from among them twelve leaders and representatives (one from each tribe, to look after their affairs and as spiritual mentors).
    The twelve Imams are therefore the Ulil Amr, as well as the 12 caliphs that Rasulallah (saw) mentions, since he even described them as one of the two caliphs he is leaving behind:
    Zaid Ibn Thabit narrated from the Messenger of Allah (P): “Surely, I leave behind two Caliphs for you: the Book of Allah, a linked rope between heaven and earth, and my noble family, and truly these two will not be separated until they return to me at the Pool (of Kauthar).” (Kanzul-Ummal, vol. 1, p.44).

    Nadia. got a reaction from Muslim2010 in 5 best questions I've got Shiism/Sunni peace   
    Asslamu alaykum,
    Tawassul is not haram, actually it is one of the things that both the sunni and shia schools of thought agree upon, it is the wahhabis who have declared it haram because they do not understand the religion of Islam. I will explain to you why tawassul is not haram.
    First of all, tawassul is not praying to other than Allah swt, but rather asking someone beloved to Allah to make dua for you. Then you might say that Imam Ali (as) or the other Imams (as) are dead, but the Quran proves us otherwise. In Surah 2 verse 154 Allah swt says that those who are martyrs are not dead, and as we know, all Imams except Imam Mahdi were martyred: 
    And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.
    Another ayah:
    Think not of those who are martyred in the way of Allah as dead. Nay! They are living, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord.”(Qur’an 3:169)
    Clearly this ayah tells us that those who are martyred are not 'dead' as we would think, but alive but we are unaware of them, therefore, asking Imam Ali (as), Imam Hussain (as) or any other Imam or someone killed in the way of Allah swt is not haram or shirk. It is rather very clear that this is permissible and completely fine to do, if you are aware of the fact that the person you ask is not the one granting your dua. Tawassul is a concept of Islam because we as servants of Allah swt can ask him to grant us things, and he can answer, but the dua of the masomeen, who are beloved to Allah swt, will always be stronger than the dua of a regular muslim.
    It is very clear that the concept of tawassul does not include belief in that the Prophet (saw) or Imams (as) have any independent power from Allah. You can read more in depth here: https://www.al-islam.org/shiite-encyclopedia-ahlul-bayt-dilp-team/tawassul-resorting-intermediary
    As for the issue of tatbir, there is not one view on this in the shia school of thought. Some maraja3 prohibit it, while others such as Sayed Sadiq Shirazi encourage it, and others do not have a specific fatwa or view on tatbir. Here are views of different scholars:
    Grand Ayatullah Khoei: “If blood matam and hitting oneself with chains, which are practiced in Muharram, cause serious harm, or harm or ridicule the religion and sect then it is impermissible.”
    Al-Masa’il al-Shar’iyah, istifta’at Imam Khoei, al-Ibadat and al-Tariq al-Najah, v.2, p.445
    Sayed Ali al-Sistani: 
    Question:
    I want to know the status of beating our backs with knives (Zanjeer) on the day of Ashura? What is it’s status in our Fiqh?
    The philosophy of mourning during ‘Ashura’, is to respect the symbols of religion and remember the suffering of Imam Hussain, his companions, and his uprising to defend Islam and prevent the destruction of the religion by the Bani Umayyad dynasty. These rites must be done in such a way that in addition to serving that purpose, it draws the attention of others to these lofty goals. So those actions which are not understandable and cause misunderstandings and contempt for the religion must be avoided.
    Ayatullah Khomeini: “Mourning and chest beating for the “unjustly treated” (the victims of the tragedy of Karbala) is amongst the best of religious practices, but the participants must exert due diligence to avoid wounds and the flowing of blood. If such actions bring about disrepute to the religion then they are forbidden. At any rate it is reccomended that the participants refrain from such actions.”
    Sayed Sadiq Shirazi: As for the ritual of Tatbir (Qama Zani) it is Halal and Mustahab.
    As you can see there are different views on the topic, but most of them are either against the very intense tatbir or prohibit it because it can give us shias a bad name. And then there are some scholars who do not prohibit it at all. 
    And lastly, your claim about us shias putting more emphasis on the Ahlulbayt rather than the Propthet (saw), is not true. To follow the sunnah of Rasoolallah (saw) is to follow and LOVE the Ahlulbayt (as). We emphasize the Ahlulbayt because the Prophet (saw) told us to do so. In Sunni sources you have different versions of hadith al Thaqalayn for example. 
    /../ I am leaving behind two precious things (thaqalayn) among you. The first of the two is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light. So get hold of the Book of Allah and adhere to it." Then he urged and motivated (us) regarding the Book of Allah. Then he said, "And my Ahlul Bayt (family). I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt"'" ....
    (Sahih Muslim, part 7, Kitab fada'il al-­Sahabah [Maktabat wa Matba’at Muhammad ‘Ali Subayh wa Awladuhu: Cairo] pp. 122-123.)
    Verily, I have left behind two precious things amongst you, one of which is greater than the other. The Book of Allah, the Exalted, and my ‘itrah (kindred). So watch out how you treat these two after me, for verily they will not separate from each other until they come back to me by the side of the Pond.' Then he said 'Verily, Allah, the Almighty and the Glorious, is my master (mawla) and I am the master of every believer (mu'min).' Then he took ‘Ali, may God be pleased with him, by the hand and said, 'This (‘Ali) is the master of whomever I am his master. O God, love whoever loves him and be the enemy of his enemy.'" 
    (Bukhari and Muslim)
    So as you can see the Prophet (saw) himself put a huge emphasis on the Ahlulbayt (as) and there are numerous ahadith where he speaks about the members of his family, for example Imam Ali (as). 
    The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said: "Had there been any soul on the whole earth better than Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan and al-Husain, Allah would have commanded me to take them along with me to Mubahala. But as they were superior in dignity and respect to all human be beings, Allah confined His choice on them only for participation in Mubahala." Sunni reference: Tafsir al-Baidhawi, under the commentary of Verse 3:61
     
    The Messenger of Allah said: "Whosoever wishes to live and die like me and enter that heaven (after death), which my lord has promised me, namely, the ever lasting heaven should acknowledge Ali as his patron after me, and after him he should acknowledge the sons of Ali, because they are the people who will never leave you outside the door of guidance nor will they let you enter the door of misguidance." Sunni references: Kanz al-Ummal, by al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, v6, p155, Tradition #2578
     
    "Verily Allah has dedicated my wage (of prophethood) to love of my Ahlul-Bayt, and I shall question you about it on the day of judgment."
    Sunni references: Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p26, al-Sirah, by al-Mala
     
    The Messenger of Allah said: "He who loves me and loves these two: al-Hasan and al-Husayn, and loves their father and mother, he will be with me in Paradise."

    ^ Mashallah very eloquent, and context is very importat, it should be sufficient for us to read about how the prophet (sws) handled polygamy, there is always a context involved, it was not meant for lustful purposes. 
     
    I have been asked so much about polygamy by my non-Muslim friends, specially my family, and mom's friends I tend to explain the following reading which I find valuable and alhamdillah they find it very interesting:
     
    The Prophet’s Marriages 
    One of the examples of Islam-bashing that we see on the TV and the internet these days is the one liner statement like: “Muhammad was a womanizer; he had nine wives.” For Muslims who have studied the books of the Orientalists and the Crusade-minded missionaries, such statements are not new. It is the same old wine packaged with a new label!
     
    Study the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) and you will see that the Prophet was a man of highest character even long before he started preaching Islam.
     
    At the age of twenty-five, Prophet Muhammad married a famous and a highly respected lady of Mecca, by the name of Khadija bint Khuwaylid, who was older than him in age.
    (According to the popular opinion, she was 15 years older than the Prophet, but based on further research into this matter, we can say that she was only two years older than the Prophet).7
    The important thing is that he remained married to her for twenty-five years until she passed away in Mecca. Two years after her death, the Prophet migrated from Mecca to Medina where he founded the first Islamic society.
     
          So for the first 50 years of his life, the Prophet had only one wife, Lady Khadīja, whom he loved dearly and who was one of the strongest pillars of support in promoting his cause. During the last 13 years of his life, he married other wives.
     
    Prophet Muhammad:
    • From birth to age 25: single.
    • From age 25 to age 50: married to one wife, Khadija.
    • From age 50 to age 63: married ten wives.
     
    The Other Wives During the last thirteen years of his life, the Prophet married ten wives. This has become an easy target for anti-Muslim writers and speakers who would like to tarnish the image of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and portray him as someone who was driven by lust and passion.
     
    If Prophet Muhammad was a man of lust, then why did he not marry any other woman when he was young and wealthy and lived in a society that accepted unlimited polygamous relationships? Why did he not marry any other woman as long as Lady Khadija was alive even though it was the prime time of his youth?
     
    And so the question comes, what was the rationale behind the other marriages of the Prophet during the last thirteen years of his life.
     
    All the marriages of the Prophet, other than that with Lady Khadija, had a good political or religious rationale. We may divide these marriages into four categories, and some marriages had double purpose or reasons.
     
    First: Providing Protection & Dignity to Widows So That Others May Follow That Example 1. Lady Sawdah bint Zam‘ah: a Muslim lady whose husband had died in Abyssinia. When she returned to Mecca, she was a widow; and her father and brother were not only infidels but also enemies of Islam. She could not seek shelter with them; they were so much opposed to Islam that they could even torture her to death.
    The Prophet, now a widower himself, married Sawdah in order to provide protection to her as well as to forge important link of kinship with his opponents.
     
    2. Lady Zaynab bint Khuzaymah: a widow for the second time when her second husband ‘Abdullah bin Jahsh was martyred in the Battle of Uhud. She was known for her generosity, and was famous as “Ummul masãkīn, mother of the poor”. Now she herself faced hard times. The Prophet wanted to maintain her prestige, and so he married her in the 3rd year AH. She died less than a year after this marriage.
     
    3. Lady Umm Salamah. She was first married to ‘Abdullah Abu Salamah. She migrated to Abyssinia with her husband. She was known for her piety and wisdom. When she became a widow and had orphan children, the Prophet married her in the 4th year A.H. She was also the sister of the chief of a powerful Meccan tribe of Makhzum. This marriage had the element of forging the link of kinship with his opponents in Mecca.
     
    Second: To Set the Slaves Free 
    4. Lady Juwayriyyah bint al-Hãrith. After the Battle of Banu Mustaliq in the 5th year AH, the Muslims took two hundred families of that tribe in slavery. Juwayriyyah, the daughter of the chief of that tribe, had become awidow. The Prophet set her free and married her.
     
    Why? The Muslims, who had made the two hundred families of Banu Mustaliq their slaves, realized that by Juwayriyyah’s marriage to the Prophet, all these two hundred families were now related to the Prophet by marriage. Out of courtesy to the Prophet, the Muslims set them free.  Impressed by this nobility, the whole tribe of Banu Mustaliq became Muslim. By this marriage, the Prophet was able to transform a hostile tribe into an ally.
     
    Third: To Forge Friendly Relations for Sake of Islam 
    5. Lady ‘Ãisha bint Abi Bakr. Although the betrothal was done in Mecca, she came into the household of the Prophet after his migration to Medina. She was the youngest wife of the Prophet.8
    This marriage sealed the alliance with Abu Bakr so that he would be on the side of Muslims during the confrontation against the idol-worshippers of Mecca.
     
    6. Lady Hafsah bint ‘Umar ibn al-Khattãb. She became a widow after her husband was killed in the Battle of Badr. The Prophet married her in the 4th year AH. This marriage was also done to seal the Prophet’s alliance with ‘Umar.
     
    7. Lady Umm Habibah, daughter of Abu Sufyan. She was married to ‘Ubaydullah ibn Jahsh and had migrated to Abyssinia. He became a Christian; while she continued the Islamic faith and separated from him. Her father, Abu Sufyan, was a bitter enemy of Islam and planned battles after battles against Muslims. When she returned to Medina, the Prophet married her in order to provide protection for her and also to soften the heart of Abu Sufyan. However, that marriage did not have the desired effect on Abu Sufyan.
     
    8. Lady Safiyyah bint Huyaiy ibn Akhtab. She was the daughter of the chief of Banu Nadhir, a Jewish tribe of Khaybar. She became a widow when her husband was killed in the Battle of Khaybar. She was taken as a captive by the Muslim forces. The Prophet married her in the 7th year AH to maintain her noble status and also to establish marriage ties with her Jewish tribe.
     
    Fourth: The Desire to be Related to the Prophet 
    9. Lady Maymunah bint al-Hãrith al-Hilaliyyah. Her second husband died in 7 AH. She came to the Prophet and “gifted” herself to him if he would accept her. She only desired the honour of being called “the wife of the Prophet”. The Prophet (based on verse 33:50 of the Qur’ãn) accepted her as his wife.
     
    Fifth: To Break a Taboo & Show an Example 
    10. Lady Zaynab bint Jahsh. She was a cousin of the Prophet; and she was a widow and a divorcee. The circumstance of her marriage to the Prophet was very unusual.
     
    Islam had come to end all the material and social criterion of distinction. Every Muslim was equal to the other. While preaching this equality, the Prophet, as an example, gave his three female relatives in marriage to persons of so-called low birth or status. Among those three relatives was Zaynab bint Jahsh. She was given in marriage to Zayd son of Hãritha, an Arab slave whom the Prophet had freed and then adopted as a son. After that adoption, Zayd was being called, Zayd bin Muhammad – Zayd the son of Muhammad.
     
    The marriage of Zaynab to Zayd soon turned sour. Zaynab could not overcome the fact she was of nobler descent than her husband. No matter how much the Prophet counseled them, Zaynab’s attitude did not change. So finally Zayd divorced her. At the same time, verses 4 and 5 of Chapter 33 (Surah al-Ahzaab) were revealed which declared that adoption was not recognized in Islam9.
    After these verses, the people started calling Zayd by his real father’s name: Zayd bin Hãritha.
    But in order to fully abolish the system of adoption, Almighty God ordered the Prophet to marry Zaynab, the divorcee of Zayd. In the pre-Islamic society of Arabia, an adopted son was considered to be like a real son: with the same rights and duties: for example, an adopted son’s wife was considered like a real daughter-in-law with whom marriage was forbidden forever. And so to break that taboo, the Prophet married Zaynab, the divorcee of his former adopted son.
         
     Both the marriages of Zaynab bint Jahsh served to enforce two important social principles of Islam: First, equality among Muslims irrespective of their ethnic or social distinctions; and second, it demonstrated the fact that a fostering or adoptive relationship was not a tie of blood and should not be a barrier in marriage.
     
    Conclusion When Prophet Muhammad was young and wealthy, he had only one wife. But in the last thirteen years of his life when he was over fifty, he married different wives––with the exception of one, all were widows and old.
     
    It is a fact that even when Prophet Muhammad had these other wives, his love for his first wife, Lady Khadija, never diminished.

    I think the hijab (headscarf not whole concept of hijab) does make a lot of difference to your appearance, for example I look very different without my hijab because my hair is quite a significant feature. Also, because the hijab frames the face differently depending on how you drape it you can also look different, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing
