Khadijah – Best Type of Woman

Recommended novel to read: Khadijah – by Sibel Eraslan (written World Best Seller on the cover)

When I’d just finished reading Habibie-Ainun, I thought Ainun is the best type of woman, and I want my wife somehow to be like her.

But after I read this novel “Khadijah” by Sibel Eraslan, it gave me a conclusion, no that’s not Ainun the best type of woman in this world.
The best type of woman is the woman that become a soulmate for the best type of man in this world. Khadijah and who else!

I’d like to excerpt some sentences at the end of the novel.

Kemudian, suatu hari, dengan penuh kesedihan, Rasulullah menggoreskan empat buah garis ke tanah dengan cabang pohon kurma.
“Tahukah kalian apa arti empat garis ini?”
“Rasul Allah pastilah tahu yang sebenar-benarnya,” jawab mereka.
“Empat garis ini menggambarkan empat wanita ahli surga yang paling mulia.
Khadijah putri Khuwailid.
Fatimah putri Muhammad.
Istri Firaun, putri Mudzahim, Asiyah.
Dan Maryam, putri Imran.
Semoga Allah meridai mereka…”

Well it’s actually from a hadith.

Dari Ikrimah dari Abdullah bin Abbas radhiyallahu anhuma ia berkata,

((خَطَّ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ أَرْبَعَةَ خُطُوْطٍ، وَقَالَ: أَتَدْرُوْنَ ماَ هَذَا؟ قَالُوْا: اَللهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ أَعْلَمُ. فَقاَلَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ: أَفْضَلُ نِساَءِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ خَدِيْجَةُ بِنْتُ خُوَيْلِدٍ، وَفَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَمَرْيَمُ ابْنَةُ عِمْرَانَ، وَآسِيَةُ بِنُتُ مُزَاحِمٍ)).

“Rasulullah menulis empat garis, kemudian beliau bertanya, tahukah kalian apakah ini? Para sahabat menjawab, Allah dan rasul-Nya yang lebih tahu. Maka beliau bersabda, sebaik-baik wanita penduduk surga adalah: Khadijah binti Khuwailid, Fatimah binti Muhammad, Maryam binti Imran dan Asiyah binti Muzahim.”
