Khadija was the first wife of Prophet Muhammad. Her extraordinary personality and strength cause her to stand out on the pages of history. She was the first person to embrace Islam, and she stood behind the Prophet and lent him strength as he went through unbearable stress and suffering. A highly successful businesswoman, she was the one who proposed to the Prophet despite being 15 years older and a widowed mother. Her devotion as a believer, her loyalty as a wife, her success as a businesswoman and her admirable skills as a mother make her an inspiration and a role model for Muslim women today in every phase and domain of life.
