KHADIJAH BINT KHAWAYLID RADIALLAHU ANHA – PART 5

THE DEMISE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST WOMEN WHO WALKED THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH

Khadijah Radiallahu Anha passed away just three years before the Hijrah, or the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s migration to Al-Madinah. She passed away at the age of sixty-five, having given almost twenty-five years to Nabi Muharnmad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and the cause of Islam.

When Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam saw her in the throes of death he consoled her saying, Allah had so ordained it, and that the thing she was dreading, would prove favorable for her. Her eyes lit up and as she gazed at her beloved husband, and her soul left its earthly body. Her grave was prepared at a place called Hujjoon, near Makkah.

Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam stepped into it to see that everything was as it should be, and with his own hands lowered her gently into it. Thus passed away the 'Mother' of all Muslims, the one who had sacrificed her all for Islam.

THE YEAR OF HUZN (GRIEF)

The same year the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam greatest supporter and protector from among his family, his uncle Abu Talib passed away. Thus within the space of a few months two of his closest companions, supporters and benefactors had passed away. Besides his personal sense of loss and bereavement, Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam was deeply disturbed by the fact that his work of spreading the word of Allah was faced with problems and obstacles. His uncle had protected him at critical moments with his influence and authority; his wealthy wife gave her all generously to the cause, and also provided great moral and emotional support. Her house was a haven of peace for him as she took upon herself all of the responsibilities of running the household and bringing up four young daughters. Whenever he was abused by the disbelievers she provided moral support and unflagging faith.

One of the ladies of the Quraish, Khawlah bint Hakim Radiallahu Anhu, visited the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam to console him, and saw his state of depression and grief and remarked on it. He replied it was only natural that he should be touched by her absence, as she had been a loving mother to his now neglected children; she had been a loyal and sympathetic wife who shared his secrets. It was only human and natural that he should feel her loss as she was there for him during his most difficult times.

A SPECIAL PLACE IN THE HEART OF HER HUSBAND (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM)

A Companion of the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam narrates that whenever any gift was brought to him he would immediately send it to some lady who had been a friend of Khadijah Radiallahu Anha. 'Aishah Radiallahu Anha , a favourite wife of Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam says that whenever a goat was slaughtered Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam would send some meat to Khadijah Radiallahu Anha's friends; when she remarked about this on one occasion he told her, 'I have great regard for her friends, as she has a special place in my heart.'

'Aishah Radiallahu Anha said she never experienced such a feeling of natural feminine jealousy for any other wife of the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam as she did for Khadijah Radiallahu Anha. She also narrates that whenever Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam spoke of her he would talk at great length and praise her qualities, and pray for her forgiveness. As Allah says in Surah Al-Fajr in the Noble Qur'an that it will be said to the pious - believers. "O the one in complete rest and satisfaction! Come back to your Lord - well-pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing (unto Him)! Enter you then among My (honored) servants, and enter you My Paradise." (89:27-30)

THE SUNNAH OF LOOKING AFTER ONES HOUSEHOLD

Hakim bin Hizam Radiallahu Anhu reported Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam having said this:

The most excellent Sadaqa or the best of Sadaqa is that after giving which the (giver) remains rich and the upper hand is better than the lower hand, and begin from the members of your household.

Muslim Shareef

It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn 'Umar that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

Beware! every one of you is a shepherd and everyone is answerable with regard to his flock. The Caliph is a shepherd over the people and shall be questioned about his. A man is a guardian over the members of his family and shall be questioned about. A woman is a guardian over the household of her husband and his children and shall be questioned about them. A slave is a guardian over the property of his master and shall be questioned about. Beware, every one of you is a guardian and every one of you shall be questioned with regard to his trust.

Muslim Shareef

Narrated Qatada Radiallahu Anhu

Anas Radiallahu Anhu  went to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam with barley bread having some dissolved fat on it. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam had mortgaged his armor to a Jew in Medina and took from him some barley for his family. Anas Radiallahu Anhu heard him saying, "The household of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) did not possess even a single Sa (2.5kg) of wheat or food grains for the evening meal, although he has nine wives to look after."

Bukhari Shareef

Al-Aswad Radiallahu Anhu said, "I asked 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha, may Allah be pleased with her, 'What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do when he was with his family?' She replied, 'He would do chores for his family, and when it was time for the prayer, he would go out.'"

Hisham Radiallahu Anhu said, "I asked 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha, 'What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do in his house?' She replied, 'He did what one of you would do in his house. He mended sandals and patched garments and sewed."

'Amra Radiallahu Anhu reported that 'A'isha Radiallahu Anha was asked, "What did Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam do in his house?" She replied, "He was a man like other men. He removed the fleas from his garment and milked his sheep."
