If Abu Bakr and Umar were corrupt deviants, how do you justify the Prophet (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him and his pure family) marrying their daughters? Also, if Umar was a bastard, how could Allah’s purest creation marry his daughter?
It was the Prophet (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him and his pure family) after all that said: “Choose wisely (the right woman) for your sperm, (children) inherit the characteristics (of those who bred them)”.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
The Prophet (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him and his pure family) married the daughters of these deviants for the same reasons the great Prophet Lot (may peace be upon him) was tasked, by Allah, to marry a woman from corrupt and immoral people.
Allah (Exalted is He) has given this command to His Prophets (may peace be upon them) to test the loyalty and faith of their nations. His Prophets (may peace be upon them) have only one option: submit to His will and make the necessary sacrifices.
Also, do you deny that the Prophets (peace be upon them) are not necessarily bound to the same rules we are?
Would you object, for example, to Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) for wanting to slit his son’s throat, despite killing an innocent person being a sin?
Or would you object to Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him and his pure family) for having more than four wives while we have been prohibited from doing so?
In both the Qu’ran and the narrations, we find many examples of Prophets being either prohibited from or permitted to certain acts, while the same exemptions do not apply to us. Therefore, it is perfectly reasonable to think that the Prophet (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him and his pure family) would submit to Allah’s will by marrying deviant women – not just daughters of deviants and bastards – to test his nation.
The objections raised in this question are not based on academic research or sound arguments but misconceptions, so they have no value. Moreover, one can not refute the historical fact that the tyrant, Umar Ibn al-Khattab (may Allah curse him), was not a bastard by making such baseless claims.
