2) To investigate and explore such aspects of her life which are dotted in the pages of history and have become obscure.
3) To conversance of her devotion, contribution and services forIslam. Biographers have done marvelous work of the life of the prophet during various ages and in various languages, but as for the wives of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) are concerned no comprehensive account of the life could be found single-handedly except that of Hadrat Ayisha. As far as Hadrat Khadija is concerned, she is not only an ideal human being, an ideal believer but she is also an ideal mother and ideal wife.
In the first two chapters effort has been made to work out the social struggles and status of Hadrat Khadija during Jahiliya period. This also includes her profession as a businesswoman.
In chapter three and four the conjugal life of Hadrat Khadija is discussed. In this connection various traditions about her personal life are collected in scholarly and comprehensive manner so that a clear picture of the personality dawns upon the mind.
In the last chapter her characteristics and her diverse features are discussed on philosophical level. This research has established that Hadrat Khadija enjoyed great prestige and respect and admiration among the commercial aristocracy of Macca, therefore as long as she lived no one could venture to do any serious violence to the prophet. It could be further added that her personal devotion to the prophet was a major factor that contributed to her perseverance and steadfastness by the Quraysh. She was the first to accept the prophetic massage the new religion with perfect understanding and complete confidence. She remained the greatest source of strength to the prophet morally, spiritual and physically as long as she lived. She was fully conscious of the great mission of Islam. She was not prophetess yet she rose to the level of the prophet and stood by him as his most faithful companion, wife, friend and servant and this is the greatest honor that God, His prophet and history have conferred upon her. The prophet himself acknowledged her greatness when he declared the tenth year of his prophethood as "the year of mourning" in which she died. The prophet remembered her with great emotion and yearning throughout the rest of his life.
Blessings and Peace of God be upon her.
