When the Prophet’s “adopted” son Zayd divorced his wife, Allah commanded the Prophet ﷺ to marry his ex-wife. Why was the Prophet ﷺ commanded to do so?
When Prophet adopted Zayd, he changed Zayd's name to 'son of Muhamad'. But Allah SWT said for the Prophet to marry Zayd's ex wife. This was to establish the fact that no one could take a child as their son and change their name.
