The Ideal Wife

Prophetic Hadiths:
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with
him) said, Once Jibreel came to the Prophet
(pbuh) and said to him, 0 Messenger of Allah!
This is Khadija coming to you carrying a utensil
containing food or drink. Would you please
pass Allah’s greetings to her when she comes,
and tell her that she will live in a house of
jewelry in Paradise where there is no noise or
[Reported by Muslim]

Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her), the first wife of the
Prophet (pbuh) was the most rational and descent woman in Quraish
tribe. She preferred to marry the Prophet (pbuh) before his
Messengership because of the integrity and the good manners he had.
She preferred him to all prominent leaders of Quraish who wanted to
marry her.
Muhammed was inclined, as Allah willed, to worship in solitude. He
kept on worshipping Allah in this manner in a cave on Mount Hira for a
month every year. He used to stay there for some days living on little
provision away from the vain talk and the amusement of the people of
Makka who worshipped idols.
The Messenger of Allah kept doing that for a period of time. Then
came Jibreel (peace be upon him) with Allah's blessings while
Muhammad was in Hira' in Ramadan. Having received Allah's
revelation, he went home scared, pale and trembling. He said, "Cover
me, cover me." After she knew what had happened, he said to her, "I
am scared, Khadija" This rational wife replied,
"May Allah look after us, Abul-Qasim, what good news, my cousin.
So be steadfast. By Whom in Whose hand is Khadija's soul I think that
you are the Prophet of this nation. By Allah, Allah will never let you
lose. You keep good terms with your relatives, are truthful, help the
weak, are a good host to your guests and help the afflicted."
Khadija was the first to believe in Allah and His Messenger and to
embrace Islam. This faithful and loving wife supported her husband,
the Prophet (pbuh), and helped him endure the most severe kinds of
torture and persecution. Then, she relieved him when he was hurt or
rejected. When they called him a liar, she alone remained true. Then
the Qur'anic verses were revealed:

{O thou wrapped up (in a mantle)! Arise
and deliver thy warning! And thy Lord do thou
magnify! And the garments keep free from
stain! And all abomination shun! Nor expect, in
giving, any increase (for thyself)! But, for thy
Lord's (cause) be patient and constant!}
[Al-Muddathir: 1-7]

Narrated AbuHurayrah:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to say: "O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee from four things: Knowledge which does not profit, a heart which is not submissive, a soul which has an insatiable appetite, and a supplication which is not heard."
