Khadeeja ( RA )============Khadeeja (R) who was also known as Tahira or Kadeeja Al- Kubra The great Khadeeja was intelligent, elegant, a woman with great ethics and morality and very well respected woman amongst the other people. She was a noble-woman of high status. She had an exemplary character and from the same Quraysh tribe likewise of prophet Muhammad (S). She was the daughter of Khuwailid from the city Makkah. She was an independent lady even in the Jahiliya age. But even in that era, self-travelling was very difficult. She has to appoint many people as an intermediator for her business for in and out transportation of goods from different places.
Syria was one among the city she did business with.Like today there is no fast track system to check the status of the business or anything like that in her times. All she can do is to hand over to the trustworthy person. But due to no basic morality or principles of Jahiliya age, it was very difficult to find a right person.
Also, the intermediator takes major commision and she left with very little. So she understood this will be a delicate situation. And she has to do something about it. This led her to prophet Muhammad (S). She proposed our prophet through her friend Nafisa. With the support of her, she went to Muhammad (S) asking for khadee hand. He was happy to accept the proposal as Khadeeja is very noble in all the way and he requested that it should be after the concent of his uncle Abu Talib.
After Abu Talib heard from Prophet Muhammad’s mouth he agreed to it as it was an unexpected proposal. The Nikah was conducted with the presence of Abu Talib, Khadeeja’s (R) uncle Amr ibn Asad and her paternal cousin Waraqa ibn Nawfal by giving 20 camels as Mahr by Prophet Muhammad. She was the most beloved wife of our prophet Muhammad (S). It is narrated in Sahih Muslim: The Messenger of Allah said: “God Almighty never granted me anyone better in this life than her. She accepted me when people rejected me; she believed in me when people doubted me; she shared her wealth with me when people deprived me, and Allah granted me children only through her.”3 Some words flourished in my mind for Kadeeja (R)The love towards her was utmost,An unexplainable love from within,She was and she just was,An enchanting real love from the heaven.
