2) Refutation of Muhammad kept his daughter–in-law without marriage

Title used by islamophobes is not at all fine because Zayd was not Prophet’s peace be upon him own son. and then author quoted 33:37, let us see what it says

[033:037] And (remember) when you said to him (Zaid bin Harithah ??he freedslave of the Prophet SAW) on whom Allah has bestowed Grace (by guiding him to Islam) and you (O Muhammad SAW too) have done favour (by manumitting him) “Keep your wife to yourself, and fear Allah.” But you did hide in yourself (i.e. what Allah has already made known to you that He will give her to you in marriage) that which Allah will make manifest, you did fear the people (i.e., Muhammad SAW married the divorced wife of his manumitted slave) whereas Allah had a better right that you should fear Him. So when Zaid had accomplished his desire from her (i.e. divorced her), We gave her to you in marriage, so that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the believers in respect of (the marriage of) the wives of their adopted sons when the latter have no desire to keep them (i.e. they have divorced them). And Allahs Command must be fulfilled. (Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:)

Now see ahadeeth

a) Narrated Anas bin Malik: When Allah’s Apostle married Zainab bint Jahsh, he invited the people to a meal. They took the meal and remained sitting and talking. Then the Prophet (showed them) as if he is ready to get up, yet they did not get up. When he noticed that (there was no response to his movement), he got up, and the others too, got up except three persons who kept on sitting. The Prophet came back in order to enter his house, but he went away again. Then they left, whereupon I set out and went to the Prophet to tell him that they had departed, so he came and entered his house. I wanted to enter along with him, but he put a screen between me and him. Then Allah revealed: ‘O you who believe! Do not enter the houses of the Prophet…’ (33.53) (Bukhari Book #60, Hadith #314)

b) Anas bin Malik, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Zaynab bint Jahsh, may Allah be pleased with her, used to boast to the other wives of the Prophet , saying, `Your families arranged your marriages, but Allah arranged my marriage from above the seven heavens.’

Quoted by Ibne Kathir under 33:37

Also note That Zaynab bint Jahash was happy with this marriage and Prophet peace be upon him used to take advice from her for example it is mentioned in Bukhari Book #60, Hadith #274

c) Aisha further said: Allah’s Apostle also asked Zainab bint Jahsh about my case. He said, “O Zainab! What have you seen?” She replied, “O Allah’s Apostle! I protect my hearing and my sight (by refraining from telling lies). I know nothing but good (about Aisha).” Of all the wives of Allah’s Apostle, it was Zainab who aspired to receive from him the same favor as I used to receive, yet, Allah saved her (from telling lies) because of her piety.(end quote)

Abu Kasem quoted

Social Drawback: In India, Sahabano case was very famous. A women raped by his father-in-law and the Islamic jury declares fatwa that he is now haram(not eligible) for his own husband. He had to live with his father-in-law.



I don’t know about above case but if it happened then Islam is totally against that, If a Man Raped the woman then he should be punished.

The punishment for rape in Islam is stoning if the perpetrator is married, and one hundred lashes and banishment for one year if he is not married.

[005:033] The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

The scholars are unanimously agreed that the rapist is to be subjected to the hadd punishment if there is clear evidence against him that he deserves the hadd punishment, or if he admits to that. Otherwise, he is to be punished (i.e., if there is no proof that the hadd punishment for zina may be carried out against him because he does not confess, and there are not four witnesses, then the judge may punish him and stipulate a punishment that will deter him and others like him). There is no punishment for the woman if it is true that he forced her and overpowered her, which may be proven by her screaming and shouting for help. End quote.
