Assalamu alaikum.When Prophet(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)send Ali(Allah be pleased with him) to Khaibar was Ali(Allah be pleased with him)married? Thank you.


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.


In his book At-Tabaqaat, Ibn Sa`d  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him mentioned that `Ali ibn Abi Taalib  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him married Faatimah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  her in Rajab five months after the Prophet's arrival in Madeenah, and consummated his marriage with her when he returned from the Battle of Badr. The Battle of Khaybar, however, took place in the sixth year after Hijrah. Therefore, ‘Ali was married to Faatimah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  them both, when the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sent him to Khaybar.

Allaah Knows best.
