Khadija: Daughter of Khuwailid
She was extremely wise, intelligent, gentle, and influential called Tahira [chaste and pure]
even in the era of ignorance. She was exceptionally wealthy and a prosperous business
woman. She married Muhammad peace be upon him at the age of forty while he was twenty
five. She provided the moral, financial, and emotional support for Muhammad peace be upon
him when he was blessed with Nubuwat (prophethood). When Muhammad peace be upon
him first saw Jibraîl Alayhis-Salâm in the cave of Hira, he was terrified and feared for his life.
He ran down the mountain trembling and crying: Cover me up! Cover me up! It was Khadija
Radhi-Allâhu anha who consoled him; she was his pillar of support; she believed in him when
everyone else doubted him. She served as his refuge, consoled him, supported him and
cared for him when he was alone, confused and terrified. She stood by him when everyone
else shunned him. Khadija Radhi-Allâhu anha rallied to the call of Islam, she gave a home to Muhammad peace be upon him, she was his first confidant, and tower of strength.
