I want to start writing posts about following the way of life of Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him. I want to talk about following his way and not just what he did, the how and the what. Sometimes it seems we forget about the how and just follow the what in the process we can hurt others and become disjointed in our approach to life because the how is just as important as the what. What comes to mind most readily is the prophet, peace to him being polygamous -this is what he did but do we ever ask how he did it? Three things come to mind: he never married another wife when he was with Khadija, he never married a women from the the community he migrated to and when he became polygamous he did so immediately (After khadija died he married both Aisha and Sauda very close together), when he became polygamous he was living in safer more financially secure portion of his life (most of the women he married after moving to Medina where he was no longer oppressed but the head of state). For me all of this matters just as much as the fact of him being polygamous. Unfortunately they don’t seem to matter for many others who jump in to the practice. I also want to explore the ‘why’ which I think is less important because the prophet was a living example of God’s will but still worth considering. The sunnah is so much more than what happened, how it happened and why are also valuable. I will not only focus only polygamy it’s just the one that to comes to mind in this instance. So I want to explore this maybe monthly. Should be interesting, stay tuned…
