Unfortunately, enemies of the Islam have fabricated a lot of myths and stories about its prophet. For example, they Altered the subject of Prophet Mohameds marriage to Zainab, the divorcee of Zaid bin Haritha. They distorted it and made it sound like a romantic love story in an effort to discredit Mohamed (Pbuh) of his reverence and esteem. Their lies were undressed by referring back to the original source of the subject and where it was first mentioned: the Quran verses. Scholars proved the falseness and weakness of authenticating such stories and confirmed their being insinuated and groundless.
What is the truth of the matter in marriage story of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) to the wife of Zaid bin Haritha?
Zainab Bint Jahsh is one of the prophets wives. She is the daughter of Omaimah Bint Abdul Muttalib, the aunt of the prophet; and the wife of Zaid bin Haritha before becoming the wife of the Messenger of Allah.
As for Zaid bin Haritha, husband Zainab before the Prophet, he was called before Islam: Zaid son of Muhammad, but he was not actually a true son for Mohamed (PBUH). He was a slave, whom Khadija purchased and gifted to Mohamed after their marriage so that he can serve him. Mohamed manumitted and adopted him to raise his social status according to the Arab traditions during those times, and after Zaids parents dishonored, expelled and abandoned him
When Prophet Mohamed felt Zaids need to marry, he told him to marry his aunt’s daughter Zainab Bint Jahsh, but Zainab abstained as it was not acceptable that a Free lady marries a ex-slave, particularly when Zainab was from a renowned and honorable family.
