أما بعد
The Prophet Muhammad صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ had 11 wives throughout his life. They are, in order of when married:
  1. Khadijah bt. Khuwaylid Al Asadiyyah
  2. Sawdah bt. Zam'ah
  3. A'ishah bt. Abi Bakr
  4. Hafsah bt. Umar
  5. Zaynab bt. Khuzaymah
  6. Umm Salamah Hind bt. Ummayah
  7. Zaynab bt. Jahsh
  8. Juwayriyyah bt. Al Harith
  9. Safiyyah bt. Huyay b. Akhtab
  10. Umm Habibah Ramlah bt. Abi Sufyan
  11. Maymunah bt. Al Haarith
A nice way to remember them is by memorising this line of poetry:
خَليلي سَبَتْ عَقْلي حُلاَ زَين هالة ....... زَهَى جَفْنَها رَمْزًا صحيحًا مُهذَّبًا
The first letter of each word in this line corresponds to the first letter in each wife's name.
هذا وصل اللهم على محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم
