Hazrat Khadija (p) – One of the 4 perfect women of universe

By: Faez Karimi

“Hazrat Khadija (peace be upon her) declared her belief in me at a time when people were against me, she certified Prophethood at a time when people were not accepting it, and provided me monetary help when all others deprived me from it.”

These are the words uttered by Chief of Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed) in honour of Umm-ul-Mominin Khadija-tul-Kubra (peace be upon her), one of the four perfect women in the entire universe.

Khadija-tul-Kubra (peace be upon her) was Prophet Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed)’s first wife, and they shared exemplary love, unity, mutual understanding and coherent views. He did not marry further in the presence of Khadija (peace be upon her). Purification and piousness have been termed the basis of the religion and Khadija (peace be upon her) has given new heights to purification and piousness as a result of which she was awarded with the title of ‘Tahira’ even before the Prophethood declaration.

Khadijah (peace be upon her) was his source of encouragement and comfort. She stood by the Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed) all the time; in moments of trial and difficulty the Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed) used to come to her and she consoled and comforted her husband and encouraged him. Khadija (peace be upon her)’s financial support had a great role in strengthening Islam. She was the ideal woman, the ideal wife for prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed), and the ideal mother for her children.

She enjoyed that great status that the Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him) used to bring salaam for her from Almighty Allah. Muhammad ibn Ishaq, the biographer of the Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed), says that when there was resumption of Divine revelation, after its cessation following the first two visits of Gabriel (peace be upon him), Khadija (peace be upon her) received a tribute and a salutation of peace from Allah.

The 10th of Ramadan of the tenth year of the Proclamation of Islam, was that black day when Khadija (peace be upon her) passed away. Khadija was buried in Hujun above Mecca. Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed) himself descended into her grave to lie in it for a few moments. After the burial, he smoothed the earth on her grave. The Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his pure seed) termed the year of death of two personalities as Aam-ul-Huzn (the year of Grief) and Khadija-tul-Kubra (peace be upon her) is one of them.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
