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.

The Mothers of Muslims

I like the information in this book. If you're just learning about Islam or Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) then you have to know his wives as the wives dispel the much misunderstood treatment of wives in Islam. They weren't meek women and not should any wife be as the examples show of the wives of The Messenger of Allah. This book introduces the reader to women of Islam not slaves to the husband. Once you read this book you may get a better understanding of true Islam minus cultur

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 .

important basics

I enjoyed the book, especially the content on Aysha. I would have liked more source references well as details about how they lived together, and how the prophet was able to afford to take care of so many children and adults considering that he was living in extreme poverty.
