“She believed in me when no one else did…” – this was the remark that the Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) said when he was asked by Aishah r.a about his deep love for his first and now deceased wife, Khadeejah, RadiaAllahuanha.

The Prophet SAW replied: “She believed in me when no one else did; she accepted Islam when people rejected me; and she helped and comforted me when there was no one else to lend me a helping hand.”

Khadeejah, knowing the Prophet from long before his Prophethood in the capacity as a Business investor in his business and lately as his wife of 15 years, was the first to accept Muhammad SAW as the Messenger of Allah, and she had never stopped doing all she could to help the cause of his Prophethood.

Striving together for Allah, love and mercy had grown between them, increasing in quality and depth as the years passed by, and not even death could take this love away.

The Prophet Muhammad SAW never stopped loving Khadeejah, and although he married several more wives after her death, and loved them all, it is clear that Khadeejah always had a special place in his heart for her sacrifices in helping him in the path of Allah.

Although her body died, yet her memory endured dearly in the heart of the noble Prophet all his life, to the extent that the Prophet would send food as gift to Khadeejah’s friends in honour of his appreciation for the help Khadeejah gave during life for Islam.

Wouldn’t we give anything to be like Khadeejah!
