Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a wealthy woman from one of the noble clans of the Arabs. Due to her noble lineage, purity and chastity, the people would call her by the title ‘Taahirah’ (the pure one) during the times of ignorance as well as the era of Islam.

When the Quraish would dispatch their trade caravans, Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would also entrust her wealth to some person with whom she would form a ‘mudaarabah’ (business partnership). The goods of Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) were equal to the combined goods of all the Quraish.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) turned twenty-five, every home began to speak of his trustworthiness, and when there was not a single person in Makkah Mukarramah who did not refer to him by the title ‘Al-Ameen’ (the trustworthy one), Hazrat Khadijah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) sent him a message saying, “If you take my wealth of trade to Syria, I will give you double the amount that other business partners are receiving.”

Due to the financial constraints of his uncle, Abu Taalib, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted the offer and departed for Syria in the company of Hazrat Khadijah’s (radhiyallahu ‘anha) slave, Maysarah.
