Khadijah bint Khuwaylid
Khadijah( رضي الله عنه) was an excellent wife.She supported Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) during his hardest times in life.When people thought that, what he said was strange, she believed in him.She supported him, encouraged him and believed in him with no doubt but Yaqeen!
She is known to us as Mother of the Believers (Ummul Momineen). And was the first person ever to accept Islam after it had been revealed to him by Jibreel (Angel Gabriel).
hKhadija ( رضي الله عنه) was an "eye-witness" of the birth of Islam. She nursed it through its infancy, through its most difficult, and through its most formative years. Islam was given shape and design in her home. If any home can be called the cradle of Islam, it was her home. She "reared" Islam. If any home can be called the "axis" of Islam, it was her home; Islam revolved around her home. Her home was the "home" of Glorious Qur'an - the Book of Allah (SWT), and the religious and political code of Islam. It was in her home that Jibreel (Angel Gabriel) was bringing Revelations from Heaven for ten years.
When Islam came under mounting pressure from its enemies, Khadijah( رضي الله عنه) sacrificed her comforts, her wealth and her home for it; and now it would appear that she sacrificed her life too, in the way of Islam. Without a doubt, if she had lived in her palatial house in Makkah, surrounded by her maid-servants, she might have lived for many more years. But she preferred to stand by her husband and his clan, and to share the hardships of life with them. During the siege, she had to endure not only the pangs of hunger and thirst but also the extremes of heat in summer and cold in winter; yet she never complained to her husband about them. Whether times were good or bad, whether she had plenty or she had nothing, she was always cheerful. Austerity and privation never soured her. It was this temperament that was an unfailing source of comfort, courage and strength for her husband during the blackest and trying moments of his life.
Prophet Muhammad (saw) forever remembered Khadija ( رضي الله عنه) with love, affection and gratitude. Her death filled his heart with deep pain and sorrow. Khadija ( رضي الله عنه) expired on the 10 Ramadhan of the 10th year of the Proclamation of Islam at the age of 65 in 619 CE, and was laid to rest in Al-Hujun, Makkah al-Mukarramah.
Prophet Muhammad (saw) himself dug the grave and descended into her grave to lay in it for a few moments. He (saw) smoothed the earth on her grave after the burial.
