Hi,

I'm at a struggle with this one. Any insight would help immensely. So, I have read that she was one of the wives of our prophet who bore him a child, Ibrahim, who passed away in his infant years. 

So I suppose it's a reason why she was considered highly from amongst all his other wives at the time. 

A fellow mominah asked me regarding her interference between Hafsa bin Umar and our Prophet, for which Surah Tahrim speaks of where he vowed to stop himself from all contact with Maria Al-Qibtiyya to please Hafsa bin Umar?

can someone pls shed some light on this?

TLDR: prophet spent night with one wife on the day he was supposed to spend it with Hafsa bin Umar, did he act fairly/equally/justly?

I'll be honest, I'm stuck Coz the mominah that asked me this doesn't seem to follow normal logic(well I hope mine is normal)

Salaam,

Yes, Hz Maria Al-Qubtiya (Mary the Copt) did bear a child with the Prophet (saw) named Hz Ibrahim (as) who died in infancy.

The Prophet did have relations with her but there was nothing wrong with it as proven in the Quran in the first verse of Surah Tahrim:

[Shakir 66:1] O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Aisha and Hafsa constantly gave the Prophet a hard time. Their jealousy was such that they often accused Hz Ibrahim of not being the Prophet's (saw) son.
