My Thoughts

There is no debate that Muhammad had eleven wives, it's written in all the history books Aliya Anjum does a great job in giving a great account if each wife.

Good simple summary

This book reviews "9" of the wives of prophet Muhammad (WAS) also know as the mothers of the believers. A good quick synopsis of the lives, traits and accomplishments of each wife. A good source of information but this one differs from other accounts I have read on the wives .
