I like to make a correction on a comment made by Ms.Amy on August 14 posting. Prohet Mohamad had at least three sons by birth, two from Khadijah and one from his slave Mariyah (who was sent to him as a gift by king of Egypt),but all died in infancy. The other son( and quite well known), Zaid bin Mohamad, whose very pretty wife (Zainab) prophet married was adopted at a young age. He was a slave of Khadijah and was gifted to Mohamad who adopted him and gave him his name .His marriage to his daughter in law is referred in Quran33:37,53 and in many hadeeses.The details in various hadeeses differ slightly leading to the marriage, but the bottom line is that a divine message encouraged him to marry her. I could write the whole story with refences but it will be too long .Interested people can find it on website"faithfreedom.org". I suggest that Ms. Amy read early islamic history from authentic sources before making wrong statements on reputable public forums.
