Q: Our Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) married many women time to time. Now my question is: Did he ever marry any woman with intention of having children (as his sons passed away young). Similarly, is there any other Prophet ever that married particularly to have children when one’s wife couldn’t have children?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
