Muslims may but Islam cannot forget Lady Khadija (s.a.)!

Author: H. Adam
Muslims may forget but Islam cannot forget that in its infancy, it was Abu Talib and Khadija (pbut) who protected it. They made Islam invulnerable. Abu Talib protected the sapling of Islam from the tempests of misbelief and heathenism; and Khadija irrigated it with her wealth. She did not let the sapling of Islam die from draught. In fact, she didn’t even let it wilt from neglect. Protecting Islam was, for Abu Talib and Khadija (pbut), their foremost duty. Islam was their first love, and it was a love which they passed on, as their “legacy” to their children.
If they – Abu Talib and Khadija (pbut) – had protected the tree of Islam from its enemies in the lifetime of Muhammad Mustafa (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) and had “irrigated” it with vast quantities of gold and silver, their children and their grandchildren protected it from its enemies after his death and irrigated it with their blood. Their blood was the most sacrosanct blood in all creation. After all, it was the blood of Muhammad Mustafa (pbuh and his pure progeny) himself – the Last and the Greatest of all Messengers of Allah and the Chief of all Apostles and Prophets. Khadija (pbuh) was an “eyewitness” of the birth of Islam. She nursed it through its infancy, and its most difficult and formative years. Islam was given shape and design in her home. If any home can be called the cradle of Islam, it was her home. She “reared” Islam. If any home can be called the “axis” of Islam, it was her home; Islam revolved around her home. Her home was the “home” of the Holy Quran-the Book of Allah, and the religious and political code of Islam. It was in her home that Gabriel was bringing Revelations from Heaven for ten years. Without a doubt, Islam means the product of the house of Khadija (pbuh) and without a doubt, the Holy Quran is the “dialect” of her family. Her daughter, Fatima Zahra, and her grandchildren, Hassan and Husain (pbut) grew up chanting and reciting the Quran. She has the same relationship to Islam and the Holy Quran that light has to eyes, a luster to a pearl, and fragrance to a rose. Khadija (pbuh) has collected more “firsts” in the history of nascent Islam than anyone else. She was the first wife of the last messenger of Allah. She was the first Believer. She was the very first mortal to declare that the Creator was only one, and that Muhammad was His messenger. Next to her husband, she was the very first individual who heard the Voice of Revelation. She was the first person who offered prayers to Allah with her husband. Whenever he went into the presence of Allah, she was his constant companion. She was the first Mother of Believers. She was the only wife of Muhammad Mustafa who did not have any co-wife to coexist with. All the love, all the affection and all the friendship of her husband, were hers and hers alone -exclusively! She died on the tenth of Ramadan of the tenth year after Hijra, and was buried in Hajun above Mecca. Muhammad Mustafa, the Messenger of Allah (peace upon him and his pure progeny) himself descended into her grave to lie in it for a few moments. After the burial, he smoothed the earth on her grave. Thus died Khadija (pbuh). Peace upon Khadija to whom Allah sent His greetings and salutations. Peace upon Khadija for whom Allah built a palace of pearls in Paradise. Peace upon Khadija, the best of women. One month after her death, Muhammad Mustafa (peace be upon him and his pure progeny) had to sustain another shock in the death of Abu Talib, his uncle and guardian (pbuh) and the bulwark of Islam. The death of these two personalities – Khadija and Abu Talib, (pbut) – was the greatest shock that the Apostle of God had to endure in the fiftieth year of his life. The two lamps of his life were extinguished. He was overwhelmed with sorrow. He called the year of their death “the Year of Grief.”
