THE SEVEN PROPOSALS OF MUHAMMAD THAT WERE REJECTED

 

1. Why did some women reject Muhammad's proposals?

2. Why did Muhammad continue to propose despite the rejections?


Dear reader,


Today I will provide evidence to show how Muhammad loved women, but some rejected his proposals and did not care about his prophethood or his wives.


Muhammad asked to marry Ghaziyyah because of her beauty, but he was rejected. Tabari claims that [Ghaziyyah] was not faithful, but he does not provide evidence. al-Tabari, volume 9, p. 136. There is no evidence that [Ghaziyyah] was unfaithful and that Muhammad was not careful not to punish her, or that she was unfaithful and Muhammad punished her.


Layla touched Muhammad's shoulder from behind and asked him to marry her. Muhammad agreed. Layla's relatives said, "How bad a thing you have done! You are a respectable woman, but the Prophet loves women. Try to separate yourself from him." Layla went to the Prophet and asked him to annul the marriage, and he agreed to that request." al-Tabari, volume 9, p. 139.


From al-Tabari, volume 9, pp. 140-141, Muhammad proposed to but did not marry:

1) Umm Hani’ bin Abi Talib [Hind] because she had a child.

2) Duba’ah bint ‘Amir because she was too old.

3) It is reported that he proposed to Saffiyah bint Bashshamah, a captive. She had to choose between Muhammad and her husband, and she chose her husband.

4) Umm Habib bint al-‘Abbas, but because al-‘Abbas was her foster brother, it was not permissible by law, so Muhammad decided to withdraw.

5) Jamrah binti Al-Harith. Her father mistakenly thought she was afflicted with something. When he returned, he found out she had already been afflicted with leprosy.


It is not explained in a clear statement whether Umm Hani’ was a Muslim before or after Muhammad asked her to marry him. al-Tabari, volume 39, p. 197 and footnote at the bottom of page 857, p. 197.


Dear reader, who is a follower of Islam, can you tell us why Muhammad's seven proposals were rejected?
