Download PDF: [S] The Wives chose the Hereafter
Sayyidah Ayesha – may Allah be pleased with her – narrates that when Allah Almighty had commanded Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – that he should informed them that whoever desires the world, should separate (from him). In other words, he could give them Talaaq and those who wish to stay being satisfied (with whatever they have) could stay.
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – then approached me and said to me, “There is an issue in which you have been given a choice, but you should not make a hasty decision until you do not discuss this with your parents.”
When I asked him what it was he recited the verse pertaining to this.
I then mentioned to him, “I prefer Allah and His Prophet and the Hereafter. What is the purpose of discussing this with Abu Bakr and Umme Rumaan?”
When Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – heard this, he was extremely pleased.” Tafseer ibn Katheer).
