In this episode, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan ends covering the life of Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her). He highlights her role and support of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) when he first received revelation. She was the first to believe in him (peace and blessings be upon him), and then supported him with all she got. Shaykh Abdurragmaan also tells us about the beautiful relationship Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) had with Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her). He narrates multiple stories of how Prophet Muhammad emphasized and expressed his love for her, during her life and after he passing. Shaykh Abdurragmaan finally tells us about how Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) passed away. Throughout this episode, Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the lessons we learn from Lady Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her), and how we can follow her example and take her as a role model.

This episode is part of the series Saintly Women, with Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan. In a time when women’s rights are in question, this series provides clear Prophetic guidance on the dignified and critical role of women from the Islamic perspective through the role model of five saintly women. Shaykh Abdurragmaan highlights the lives and lessons of Sayyida Khadija bint Khuwaylid, Sayyida Fatima al-Zahra, Sayyida Asiya, Sayyida Maryam bint Imran, and Sayyida Aisha bint Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with them all).

The lives and lessons of these five saintly women will be covered due to their high virtue and status are given in the Qur’an and Sunna. The series will extract lessons of guidance from their lives so that Muslim women can take them as role models. It is important for both men and women to know about these saintly women, to follow their virtuous character, and to teach the generations to come how to follow them as role models, especially the girls and young ladies.
