All the prophets of Allah Ta‘ala are very special people. From all the people in the world, they are the best and most pious people. Even before they became the prophets of Allah Ta‘ala, they never committed any sin and always wanted to help people and do good deeds.

Our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala when he was forty years old. Even before he became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala, he never committed any sin. Because he was the special person who Allah Ta‘ala had chosen to become the prophet, Allah Ta‘ala protected him from committing any sins.

In the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the people used to worship idols and statues. Even when making tawaaf of the Ka’bah, they would pass their hands over the idols. They would also drink wine and eat haraam meat. However, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not worship or touch the idols, and he did not eat haraam meat.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was thirty-five years old, the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka’bah. This was five years before Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala.

When Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam) had built the Ka’bah, it did not have a roof. Also, the walls were not very high. They were just a little taller than the height of a normal person. Because the Ka’bah was very old, and whenever it would rain, the water would flow into the Ka’bah and fill it, the Ka’bah was becoming damaged and needed to be rebuilt. That is why the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka’bah.

After deciding to rebuild the Ka’bah, Abu Wahab said to the Quraish, “Remember that the money used to build the Ka’bah must be halaal money. It must not be money from sins, stealing and other haraam things. Allah Ta‘ala will only accept our building and be happy with us if we use halaal money.”

The Holy Ka’bah is the house of Allah Ta‘ala in the world, just like every masjid in the world is also the house of Allah Ta‘ala. However, from all the houses of Allah Ta‘ala in the world, the Holy Ka’bah is the first house of Allah Ta‘ala to be built. That is why it is very, very old.  The Holy Ka’bah is also the most special house of Allah Ta‘ala.  

From the time when Allah Ta‘ala created the world until today, the Holy Ka’bah has been built five times.  

The Holy Ka’bah was first built by Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam). After Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) came to the earth, Allah Ta‘ala sent the angel, Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam), to tell Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) that he must build a house of Allah Ta‘ala in the world so that people can come there and worship Allah Ta‘ala. That was when Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) built the Holy Ka’bah. When Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) finished building the Ka’bah, he walked around it and made tawaaf, and he was the first person in the world to make tawaaf.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) returned from Syria, and Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) saw the angels who were giving him shade. Maysarah told her what Nastoora had said, and her cousin, Waraqah bin Nawfal, also told her that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the final Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala. Apart from this, there had been many signs, in the past, showing that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the final Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala.

Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a pious and pure woman. At that time, she did not have a husband, because her husband had passed away. Many men in the Quraish wanted to marry her, but she did not accept and stayed without a husband. However, when she saw all these different signs, showing that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the final Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala, then she hoped to marry him and become his wife.

Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) sent a message to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), proposing marriage, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) accepted. At that time, Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was forty years old, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was twenty-five years old.

Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) was a woman from one of the noble Arab families. Even before Islam, she was such a noble and pure woman, who stayed away from sins and evil, that the people would call her ‘Taahirah’, which means ‘the pure one’. 

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) to be very rich and wealthy. When the Quraish would send their trade caravans to do business, then Sayyidah Khadeejah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) would also send her goods and items with someone to sell them and do business for her. However, she was so wealthy that the goods and items that she sent for business were equal to all the other people’s goods put together!

By the time Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was twenty-five years old, he was famous in Makkah Mukarramah for his trustworthiness. All the people in Makkah Mukarramah would call him ‘Al-Ameen’, which means ‘the trustworthy one’.
