The Story of Khadija
One day, the Prophet Muhammad was describing Khadija's virtue, and he pointed to the heaven and earth with his finger and stated, "Mary, mother of Jesus, is the best of the women of the heavens, and the worthiest woman still living on this earth is Khadija, daughter of Khuwaylid."
Khadija's life is a source of great inspiration to believers, especially women. She is an excellent example of how one can give to the cause of Islam one's time, energy, wealth and life. Her story is a reminder to believers to live purposeful lives and, in our prayers, we should remember Khadija and the whole family of the Prophet for their sacrifice and dedication. It was precisely their sacrifice, dedication and hard work that made it possible for Islam to reach all the four corners of the world and allowed the Quran to be preserved in its original form. May Allah be pleased with them all.
