Lady Khadija wanted to give prophet mohammed all the support necessary for him to cope with all the hate he received from the Quraish tribe. But this was not as easy as it sounded, prophet mohammed and lady khadija had to overcome adversity and make Islam the way it is today. It took some time but over an extensive period the prophet and his lovely wife khadija were able to convince the Quraish that Islam was a worth while cause. Then as the religion grew and grew, lady khadija fell terribly sic...more

'At the time Khadija was born, Hijaz was, in every sense of the word, living in the time of ignorance. However there were a few roses among the swamp where people found solstice and wisdom...... ' What irony in the statement, how can you have a completely ignorant society which produces some of the wisest men on earth?
If you can somehow bypass such stark assumption made by the author and keep focused on trying to gauge as much information as possible about one of the most allusive and neglected...more

I really enjoyed this book I don't know why I left it too late to read it!

I enjoyed the prophet Muhammad (SAW) and Khadija's relationship and the book was very good at portraying just how much our beloved prophet loved her.

First book of its kind, full of emotions and faith. I highly recommend it for Muslims and non Muslims.

I loved this book. Sharing my name with the wife above and having chosen it based on my admiration for her. I grabbed the chance to learn more from her life story and lessons. This book was written very well and I became engrossed in it, so much so that when the book ended I was left disappointed that I was already finished. I highly recommend this to sisters looking to connect with the Wife of the Prophet s.w.s more and in doing try to benefit from her beauty,wisdom and elegance.

Khadija's life deserves more academic attention and scholarly research. While I was happy to find this book, one solely devoted to the life of an incredible woman, I was not satisfied with the length of the book. A life like hers needs to be told in a 500+ page tome. My rating of 3 stars is for the writing not the subject matter.
Subject great but writing left a lot to be desired.
You have to have the interest to enjoy this book.
