Prophet MUHAMMAD had his eye on someone else’s wife


Holy Prophet (s) had his eye on someone else’s wife

Imam Shawkani records in Tafsir Fatah al-Qadir, Volume 4 page 404:

قال القرطبي : وقد اختلف في تأويل هذه الآية فذهب قتادة وابن زيد وجماعة من المفسرين منهم ابن جرير الطبري وغيره إلى أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم وقع منه استحسان لزينب بنت جحش وهي في عصمة زيد وكان حريصا على أن يطلقها زيد فيتزوجها هو ثم إن زيدا لما أخبره بأنه يريد فراقها ويشكو منها غلظة قول وعصيان أمر وأذى باللسان وتعظما بالشرف قال له : اتق الله فيما تقول عنها وأمسك عليك زوجك وهو يخفي الحرص على طلاق زيد إياها

Al-Qurtubi said: ‘There is disagreement about the interpretation of this verse, Qutada, ibn Zaid and a group of scholars such as Ibn Jarir al-Tabari and others believed that the prophet (s) liked Zaynab bint Jahash while she was wife of Zaid and He (s) was wishful that Zaid divorce her and then He (s) gets married to her.’ And when Zaid made a complain of her to Him (s) and told Him (s) that he wanted to divorce her, He (s) said to him: ‘Keep thy wife to thyself, and fear Allah’ while He (s) was hiding His desire that she gets divorced by Zaid.
