We all know the story of the first revelation of the Qur’an, Iqra bisma…. and so on.Â Do we know what happened right after?
We know that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) told his wife and his wife comforted and from then on he became the Messenger of God.Â Wait?Â Is that all too it?
Think deeper…deeper…deeper.Â Imagine, he is just a man in a cave.Â Angel Jibreel (Gabriel) comes and squeezes him 3 times and then he goes to his wife and tells her what happened.Â No wait!Â Your not getting it?Â Let me explain it to you in modern day terms.Â You are the CEO of a billion dollar company and you quit your job.Â You go home and you tell your wife, “I quit my job”.Â You think she’ll be pleased?Â Would you be pleased?
The Prophet (peace be upon him): “Khadijah, God spoke to me through the Angel Jibreel”.Â Khadijah: “It’s okay Muhammad, I believe you and I support you.”Â Khadijah didn’t even say ‘Are you crazy?’.Â The Prophet (peace be upon him) actually thought he was crazy, but Khadijah told him he wasn’t.
SubhanAllah!Â If you were Khadijah, would you believe?Â Whether you are a male or female, it doesn’t matter, would you believe?Â Would you believe your spouse like Khadijah, with no questions asks, no comments, no nothing?
Sometimes we take it for granted that we are Muslims.Â Imagine if we were in a position like that, would our hearts be easily influenced and so full of trust in another person to believe that person?
