In this podcast, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus calls the believers to reflect on the history in the Qur’an being a sacred history. Shaykh Yahya goes on to explain the high rank of Sayyida Khadija and how every time the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)left the house he mentioned her out of a heartfelt connection.
Shaykh Yahya goes on to give a lovely metaphor when he said Sayyida Khadija was like the womb for the birth of Islam. She nurtured, comforted and gave reassurance to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), and supported him. The first bond of Islam was with Sayyida Khadija.
At the first revelation she gave testimony of 5 things about the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him): 1)He maintains family ties 2) You bare the burdens of others 3) You give to the needy and raise them4) You show hospitality 5) You assist during times of calamity
Shaykh Yahya ended by saying when he thinks of Sayyida Khadija he thinks 3 things: Support, Sacrifice, and Service.
This talk took place at the Harrow mosque in the U.K.
