        Successful Married Life Of Muhammad (S.A.W.) And Khadija (R.A.)

        BISMILLAHIR-RAHMANIR-RAHEEM

        Khadijah (R.A), married the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) when she was 40 and he was 25. They had six children: two sons, Qasim and Abdullah (also known as Tahir and Tayyib), and four daughters: Zainub, Ruqaiyyah, Umm Kulthum and Fatimah (Radhiyallahu-Anhum-Ajmaeen).

          Re: FYI: The Prophet :saw:'s marriage to Khadija (ra).

          :start:

          She was one of the noblest women around, coming from a very prominent family. She was also quite beautiful and the holder of a considerable amount of wealth, being a prominent businesswoman. To marry her would have been a great feat for any man, and indeed, quite a few of the most prominent and wealthy men in society had asked for her hand. Yet, she rejected them all; already being a widow, she had lost the desire to marry again.

          Until he came into her life. He was young man of 25, and although he was also of a very noble family, he was an orphan and was not a man of many means. He had made a meager living tending sheep in the hills surrounding the city. Yet, he had an impeccable moral character, and he was widely known as one of the most honest men around. That is what attracted her to him: she was looking for someone honest who could conduct business for her, as she – a woman in a fiercely patriarchal society – could not do it herself. So, he started working for her.

          After he came back from his first business trip, she asked her servant, whom she sent with him, about him and his conduct. The servant amazed her by his report: this young man was the kindest, gentlest man he had ever met. Never did he treat the servant harshly, as many others do. Yet, there was more: as they travelled in the heat of the desert, the servant noticed that a cloud had followed them the entire time, shading them from the blazing sun. The businesswoman was quite impressed with her new employee.

          Not only that, this new employee proved to be an astute businessman in his own right. He took his employer’s merchandise, sold it, and with the profits bought other merchandise that he sold again, thus profiting twice. All this was enough for her: the embers of love in her heart that were once extinguished re-kindled again, and she resolved to marry this young man, who was 15 years younger than she.

          So, she sent her sister to this young man. She asked him, “Why are you not married, yet?”

          “For lack of means,” he answered.

          “What if I could offer you a wife of nobility, beauty, and wealth? Would you be interested?” she told him.

          He replied in the affirmative, but when she mentioned her sister, the young employee chuckled in amazement.

          “How could I marry her? She has turned down the most noble men in the city, much wealthier and prominent than me, a poor shepherd,” he said.

          “Don’t you worry,” the sister replied, “I’ll take care of it.”

          Not long after, the wealthy businesswoman married her young employee, and it was the beginning of one of the most loving, happiest, and sacred marriages in all of human history : that of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and Khadijah (RA), the daughter of Khuwaylid. When they were married, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was 25 years old, and Khadijah was 40. Yet, that did not bother the Prophet (SAW) one bit. He loved her so deeply, and she loved him as deeply. They were married for 25 years, and she bore him seven children : 3 sons and 4 daughters. All of the sons died in young age. Khadijah (RA) was a source of immense love, strength, and comfort for the Prophet Muhammad, and he leaned heavily on this love and support on the most important night of his life.

          While he was meditating in cave of Hira, the Angel Jibreel (AS) came to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and revealed to him the first verses of the Quran and declared to him that he was to be a Prophet. The experience terrified the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), and he ran home, jumping into Khadijah’s (RA) arms crying, “Cover me! Cover me!” She was startled by his terror, and after soothing and comforting him for a while, the Prophet was able to calm down and relate to her his experience.

          The Prophet (SAW) feared he was losing his mind or being possessed. Khadijah (RA) put all his fears to rest:

          “Do not worry,” she said, “for by Him who has dominion over Khadijah’s soul, I hope that you are the Prophet of this nation. Allah would never humiliate you, for you are good to your relatives, you are true to your word, you help those who are in need, you support the weak, you feed the guest and you answer the call of those who are in distress.”

          She then took him to her cousin, Waraqah ibn Nawfal – a scholar well-versed in the Judeo-Christian scripture – and he confirmed to the Prophet (SAW) that his experience was Divine and he was to be the Last Prophet.

          After his ministry began, and the opposition of his people became harsh and brutal, Khadijah (RA) was always there to support the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), sacrificing all of her wealth to support the cause of Islam. When the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his family was banished to the hills outside of Makkah, she went there with him, and the three years of hardship and deprivation eventually led to her death. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) mourned her deeply, and even after her death, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) would send food and support to Khadijah’s friends and relatives, out of love for his first wife.

          Once, years after Khadijah (RA) died, he came across a necklace that she once wore. When he saw it, he remembered her and began to cry and mourn. His love for her never died, so much so, that his later wife Ayesha once felt jealous of her. Once she asked the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) if Khadijah (RA) had been the only woman worthy of his love. The Prophet 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.”

          The Prophet said, "The best of the world's women is Mary (at her lifetime), and the best of the world's women is Khadija (at her lifetime)."

          And look what Ayesha (r.a) had to say for her: ''I did not feel jealous of any of the wives of the Prophet as much as I did of Khadija (although) she died before he married me, for I often heard him mentioning her, and Allah had told him to give her the good tidings that she would have a palace of Qasab (i.e. pipes of precious stones and pearls in Paradise), and whenever he slaughtered a sheep, he would send her women-friends a good share of it.

          And it is also clear from the history that he continued to trade on his own during the time of his marriage with Khadija (r.a) and even after her death.''

              Re: FYI: Muhammed's (pbuh) marriage to Khadija (ra).

              I received a Whatsapp recently which goes well with this thread, just thought I'd share, seen as its pretty sweet..:-

              "I know a man who lost his parents at a young age. He was man enough to love a strong woman years older than him, worked for her and made her stronger, opened his heart to her, shared his fears to no one but her. He was romantic and was faithful to her till her last breath. Cleaned after himself and sewed his own clothes. He was good looking, courageous and fearless. He never judged anyone on their pasts or looks, and was moderate, open minded and tolerant. His neighbour was Jewish and his cousin-in- law was a Christian priest. Beaten and exiled when he was helpless, he was merciful when he became stronger. Intelligent, wise and a hard worker, he built a long lasting nation out of nothing in the last 20 years of his life. He had no parents, but loved his daughters and grandchildren. His last will was "Be good to women". His constitution was the quraan that preached tolerance to all other religions. He never judged anyone on the bases of colour or creed. A man I would die for. This man was a mercy for all mankind,this is my Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him"

              How beautiful...
              وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمۡ ءَامِنُواْ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلنَّاسُ قَالُوٓاْ أَنُؤۡمِنُ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ*ۗ أَلَآ إِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَعۡلَمُونَ


              And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: Shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware! They indeed are the foolish? But they know not.
              Al Baqarah : Verse 13

                Re: FYI: Muhammed's (pbuh) marriage to Khadija (ra).

                This is the greatest love story MashAllah. I have one question. The Prophet (pbuh), he had found Khadeejah through his work (outside of the family), hence NOT an arranged marriage. He had then proposed to get married through her Father.

                I am Pakistani, and my parents absolutely FORBID that I find someone myself, whether she is at my workplace or through a friend. They have told me that I am only allowed to marry a girl that they find themselves and I have no choice but to marry someone with this method (albeit I have a choice to say yes or no).

                I have spent so much time and effort over the past few years finding good religious muslim girls (through work, matrimonial sites, recommendations..etc), and in the end, my parents just blindly refused it without even hearing a word about the girl. Saying that it is Haraam. And it was made me so emotionally upset that I am not in the right mindset to view the girls they propose to me.

                Any advice on this?

She can use just a small amount to rent a dress that will make her look and feel like a million dollars.

                              As Allah SAW says in the Quran:

                              "And among His signs is he that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your hearts. Undoubtedly in these are signs for those who reflect” [Noble Quran 30:21]

                              The Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) life is the greatest example for mankind to follow, and his includes how to treat and love your spouse. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) married Khadija Bint Khuwailid when he was 25 years old. She was a 40 years old widow when she married him.
