Twelve Daughters of Holy Prophet ﷺ

This ignorant allegation is from Malfuzat, and is in regards to how many daughters the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw had. Firstly, according to the Qur’an we know that every time a prophet comes he is mocked. It is not something new that such allegations are raised and the Qu’ran itself states that Prophets are called liars. Allah States:

 

أَأُلْقِيَ الذِّكْرُ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ بَيْنِنَا بَلْ هُوَ كَذَّابٌ أَشِرٌ {26}

 

Has the message been sent down upon him from among us? Rather, he is an insolent liar.”( Chapter 54 verse 26)

 

This verse directly applies to Prophet Salih but througout the Qur’an we see that all Prophets are mocked and ridiculed. Allah States:

 

كَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَتَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُوا سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ {53} أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ {54}

 

Even so there came no Messenger to those before them, but they said, ‘A sorcerer, or a madman!’ Have they made it a legacy to one another? Nay, they are all a rebellious people. (Chapter 51, Verses 53-54)

 

وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ فَحَاقَ بِالَّذِينَ سَخِرُوا مِنْهُمْ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ{11}

 

And surely have the Messengers been mocked at before thee, but that which they mocked at encompassed those of them who scoffed. (Chapter 6 Verse 11)

 

وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ فَأَمْلَيْتُ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُهُمْ ۖ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عِقَابِ {33}

 

And surely, Messengers have been mocked at before thee; but I granted respite to those who disbelieved. Then I seized them, and how was then My punishment!(Chapter 13 Verse 33)

 

وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ{12}

 

And there never came to them any Messenger but they mocked at him.” (Chapter 15 Verse 12)

 

Now this allegation is from Malfuzat Volume 6, Page 57 and 58 and it seems as if Ahmadas supposedly refers to 12 daughters. Firstly the saying is not from one of his book, rather it is written by a companion while Ahmadas was speaking to the women during a sermon. In the same volume Page 53, the person makes it clear that he had to stand outside the door and write what he heard and that there were children with the women who were amking a lot of noise which made it hard to understand. ts clearly explained that he used to write what Ahmadas stated but sometimes he would not hear the statement properly, so would write what he thought was said, but was not always correct.Therefore, we are not completely aware of what the Promised Messiah was saying. It is possbile that he was perhaps referring to the number of wives of the Prophet and was saying that despite having a lot of wives, the Prophet never ever complained of a son not being born to him who remained alive as all of them died at an early age. Other than this, we cannot be sure as to what he stated, and Allah Knows Best.
