When ..You find your dear husband like to khalwat
You never prevent him to away from you..

That day when he came home shivering with fear
You covered and calmed him with the tenderness of love..

Never annoy him with questions first
Until he told you himself…

You so trust and confident of him..
You cheer him that Allah will never disgrace him

Always sure he is the best..
Nor show the slightest hesitation towards him

A messenger of Allah is your husband….

You be the first to believe in Allah and His Messenger
You the first to believe in what his Lord sent him
You strengthened him in all his affairs.

You spent all what you have for his da’wah….
Until that day he saw you crying
But not due the poverty
The sadness no has anything left anymore to spend in His way…

Remember that day when all Quraish boycott the prophet
You company him to your end
You were the richest who owed several kinds of trade.
That time you were shivering in hungry
Your beauty fades due of poverty

Your dear husband loves never fade
Death couldn’t take his love away….
You always have a special place in his heart
Your gesture and voice… recorded strongly in his mind

He always constantly mentions your name…
Didn't get tired of praising you
Mentioned you virtues and merits extensively on many occasions
It seem he never depart his house before praised you

Whenever he sacrificed a sheep
He would send it to those who had been your intimate friends.
He love you dearly
as if there had never been any other woman in the world like you [6]

Anything hurt you.. That would hurt him too..
He couldn’t bear to hear bad thing in your regard
Even that came from his beloved wife Aishah…

He said….
You are a wife who believed in him when other rejected him
You accepted Islam when people rejected
You helped and comforted him
When there was no one else to lend him a helping hand
You affirmed his truthfulness when everyone else accused he lying
You supported him with you money when everyone else deprived him.
Allah provided him with children through you
When no other woman has given me children. [7]

How could someone forget you
You are a loveable woman
You are an adorable woman…
And perfect affectionate mother..
A virtuous wife
You always beside your husband to listen his sorrow
You are a wise behalf
You are the best friend and counselor…

Allah loves you more
Your soul is His belong…
to Him you return
Your dear husband buried your body with his own hand
That day…that year be a great grieve time in his live….

And he call your for the palace that He promises
Give you a glad tiding as the owner a mansion in paradise
Made of brilliant pearls
Which there will be no clamor or toil


May Allah help all us to be like Khadijah…
A blessed woman whom Allah and her husband please with her
