* A.P. = After Prophet Hood. Prophet was bestowed prophet hood at the age of 40.

* A.H. = After Hijrat. Prophet performed Hijrat (migration) at the age of 53.

In his full youth at the age of 25, the Prophet married 15 years elder than him a two times widow and mother of orphan children. The marriage lasted for full 25 years when she died. After the death of his first wife, nobody was at his home to take care of children, so he married another divorced lady of 50 years old. After the migration to Madinah, he had to combat the old rivalry, misbehaviour, tyranny, widow problems, orphans issue and many more social evils. Similarly he had to send the emissaries with Divine Message in different clans of Arabs where Prophet was not suppose to visit. Furthermore he had to remove down the extreme enmity and hatred prevailing in Arab tribes for him. Finally he had to train the women-folk and leave behind their sufficient numbers to convey the message after him. According to 33/50 he married those ladies who devoted themselves to the mission of the Prophet and sacrificed for the mission and migrated for the mission from their homeland due to persecution. Further in 33/28-29 all the marriages were for the cause and mission, not for any worldly pleasure.
