Jibreel alaihis Salam once said to our Beloved Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam:
“Allah’s Messenger! Khadija is coming to you with a vessel of seasoned food or drink. When she comes to you, offer her greetings from her Lord, the Exalted and Glorious, and on My behalf give her glad tidings of a palace of jewels in Paradise wherein there is no noise and no toil”.
as narrated by Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah RadhiAllah anhu.
As we pass these Mubarak days fasting may time be spent on this 11th day of Ramadhan, the anniversary of our Ummu-l Mu’mineen Khadijah bint Khuwaylid al-Kubra RadhiAllahu anha leaving this earthly realm; reflect on her life and the impact she has had on the Ummah and the glory she has attained through her sacrifices for our Deen. Turn back time and deeply feel her presence with the intention to try make changes in your lifestyle that emulate her love, devotion, simplicity and unwavering Iman, Insha’Allah.
