women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because
they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the

High, Exalted, Great.

Prophet) entered the (house), and said: Why is it, O Aisha, that you are out of
breath? I said: There is nothing. He said: Tell me or the Subtle and the Aware

enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of

the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their
warriors killed, their offspring and women taken as captives. Safiyya was
amongst the captives, she first came in the share of Dihya Al-Kalbi but later on
she belonged to the Prophet. The Prophet made her manumission as her Mahr.
