*Four Complete Women*
🌸 Note 1⃣1⃣
Khadija bint Khuwaylid (رضي الله عنها)
⛅Never underestimate the woman, that’s why Islam gave so much honor and respect to the women. All the rulings are for the benefit of the woman. When a woman inherits half, it’s exclusive for her own use. But when the man takes double it’s because he needs to spend on his family, mother, and sisters. So every woman is a queen in Islam. Once a person asked why can’t the lady touch the man in Islam❓ He was told, ‘does anyone go and touch the queen?’ Then it was understood – a woman in Islam is treated like a queen, honored and respected, not to be looked down upon.
⛅ After Khadija (ra) died, if the Prophet (ﷺ) would hear a voice similar to hers, he would get affected and remember his wife. Once he heard Khadija’a sister and it sounded like his wife and he was also giving to her as a respect to his wife. Aisha (ra) was once jealous and said, ‘why do you remember someone who died and was older and now she’s been replaced with someone younger?’
The Prophet (ﷺ) said
(لا والله ما أبدلني خيرا منها)
_(By Allah, He didn’t replace me with someone better than her), subhan Allah._
(آمنت بي حين كفر الناس)
_she believed in me while everyone else denied me_
⛅ She was the first one to do wudhu with the Prophet (ﷺ) and she was the first one to pray with him, even before Abu Bakr (ra). He said Allah (swt) gave me children with her, but not with the rest. Aisha (ra) never talked about Khadija (ra) after that.
⛅The Prophet (ﷺ) said (رزقت حبها) – her love was a provision for me. Though she was older and has passed away, he still loved her, subhan Allah.❗
⛅ This is true love, not an earthly love with desires, it’s a pure love. The Prophet (ﷺ) was so loyal to her, even after she passed away.
⛅ Khadija (ra) then said, I will take you to Waraq bin Nowful, her cousin who is not from the mushrikeen, but has knowledge of the Books. This shows she not only praised him, but she acted and made a move. She took the Prophet (ﷺ) to someone who can really help him. Sometimes you might choose someone that’s good for you or who will be on your side, but Khadija (ra) was just.
⛅ Khadija (ra) was a businesswoman before but after she married, she was a housewife. In Makkah, they were the first Muslim household.
(عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ أَتَى جِبْرِيلُ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ هَذِهِ خَدِيجَةُ قَدْ أَتَتْ مَعَهَا إِنَاءٌ فِيهِ إِدَامٌ أَوْ طَعَامٌ أَوْ شَرَابٌ، فَإِذَا هِيَ أَتَتْكَ فَاقْرَأْ عَلَيْهَا السَّلاَمَ مِنْ رَبِّهَا وَمِنِّي، وَبَشِّرْهَا بِبَيْتٍ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِنْ قَصَبٍ، لاَ صَخَبَ فِيهِ وَلاَ نَصَبَ.)
Narrated Abu Huraira (ra): Gabriel came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said,
_”O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! This is Khadija coming to you with a dish having meat soup (or some food or drink). When she reaches you, greet her on behalf of her Lord (i.e. Allah) and on my behalf, and give her the glad tidings of having a Qasab palace in Paradise wherein there will be neither any noise nor any fatigue (trouble)_
🌧 Sahih al-Bukhari 3820
⛅ Jibreel (as) told the Prophet (ﷺ) Khadija (as) is now coming with some water, and when she comes tell her Allah (swt) sends His salam to her and I too give salam to her. And give her glad tidings of a house in paradise. Khadija (ra) didn’t ask for this, though Asiya asked because she was being oppressed by her husband. Khadija (ra) was known for her support of the Prophet (ﷺ). That’s why behind every great man is a great woman. May Allah (swt) give us paradise to see the complete women. Ameen. ❗
🏡 She established the first Muslim house in Quraish, so Allah (swt) gave her a house in paradise made of hollowed pearl, and there is no noise or screaming and or tiredness – it’s a quiet house. Contrary to the houses in the duniya which are full of noise and fatigue.
May Allah (swt) grant us paradise. Ameen. ‼
