In this video series, we consider who the most important women are in Islamic history. Many Muslims would name Aminah bin Wahb, Muhammad’s mother, or Aisha, Muhammad’s favorite wife. But Aminah did not have much influence on the prophet, as she died while he was still a baby.
Although Aisha was Muhammad’s most beloved wife, there is much debate about this marriage, because he married her when she was still a child. Fatimah was also important. She was Muhammad’s favorite daughter. Muhammad did not allow her husband to take other wives. It seems that Muhammad realized that polygamy was not a good idea, at least not for everyone!
