Ummul Mu'mineen Hazrat Khadijah (R)

Name: Khadijah bint Khuwaylid
Mother: Fatimah bint Zaaidah
Title: At Tahirah

Full Lineage: Khadijah bint Khuwaylid ibn Asad ibn Abdil Uzza ibn Qusay. Her lineage meets with that of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) at ibn Qusay
She was given this title because she was free from the customs and habits of jahiliyah (ignorance) even before Rasulullah's (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) commission as a Prophet.

She was first married to Abu Halah bin Zurarah. After he passed away Ateeq bin Aaiz married her. After he passed away, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) married her while she was 40 years old and Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was 25. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) did not marry any woman before her nor did he r marry any other woman until she passed away. She was the first person to accept Islam. All his children were from her besides Ibrahim (R). She passed away at the age of 65 years in Makkah Mukarramah approximately 3 years before Hijrah and lies buried in Jannatul Mualla. She was married to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for 25 years.


Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (R) reported that Hazrat Jibreel (AS) came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and said, “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)! This is Khadijah (coming here). She has brought a vessel containing condiments and food. When she comes, convey Salaams to her from her Rabb and from me and give her the glad tidings of a house in Jannah of brilliant pearls and there will be no clamour and noise and no toil and labour.” (Bukhari, Muslim)

Hazrat Ayesha (R) said, “I was not envious of any of the wives of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as I was of Hazrat Khadijah (R) although I did not see her. Nabi r remembered her often and mentioned her frequently. Sometimes he (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would slaughter a sheep, slice it in pieces and send them to the friends of Hazrat Khadijah (R) (out of appreciation). I would say, 'It is as if there is no other woman in this world besides Hazrat Khadijah (R)'. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would respond, 'She was what she was and my children were born from her.'” (Bukhari)
