Khadijah bint Khuwaylid was the first wife of the Prophet Muhammad. She was also the first person to convert to Islam.
Khadijah came from a wealthy family. When her father died, Khadijah managed the family business. Khadijah was successful and became very wealthy. Muhammad went to work for her and she sent him on several journeys selling and buying goods. They married and were happy together. They had four daughters and two sons, both of whom died.
When Allah told Muhammad to call people to worship Him, Khadijah was the first person to obey his command. She became the first person to convert to Islam. In the following years, she stood by Muhammad as the power leaders of Mecca tried to destroy them and drive them out of the city.
