The Trust Worthy and True Love


Mohammad was called The Trust-
Worthy; he never lied or Deceived.
Yet with all of his innocence, no one
Could deceive him in Makkah,
He worked for Khadijah;
She was a wealthy middle aged
Very beautiful woman.

It was common in Makkah,
At that time that elderly men
Marry very young girls
And elderly women marry
Young men. Age was not
An issue in love’s domain.

Khadijah married two or three
Times before Mohammad,
She had children too,
But he was a virgin; he never
Touched a woman before.

She fell in love with the honesty,
Purity and transparency,
And, of course, he was
Extremely handsome in
Face as well as body,
She sent him one of her
Female helpers to suggest
For him to marry Khadijah.

‘My level is much below her’
So said he, peace be upon him,
And I do not have enough
Money as a dowry for
Such a lady,
All problems were solved
And Khadijah was wedded
To Mohammad. His love for
Her was so deep to the extent
He did not want any other
Woman.

Even after her death
He stayed without a wife
For about four years. And
Would send gifts to her friends,
And run to meet her sister Halah
Saying her voice is like that of Khadijah,
When he married again, he chose
One of her friends or acquaintances,
But he did not love’ Sawdah’.
So God chose for him young ‘Aishah’,
Who had a broken engagement
Before him. A gift from God
For him after suffering alot;
The brilliant, witty and amusing
Eloquent daring wife.

Mother Aishah was also a gift to us;
All true Muslims, for she memorized
Every word and actin said and done
By the prophet and told us most of
His Tradition. But whenever
She got jealous from the old
Dead Khadijah and dare to say
God gave you a better wife,
Mohammad, pbuh, would hush
Her and say angrily, ‘No God
Never gave me a woman better
Than Khadijah’.

When Mohammad saw Gabriel,
Pbuh, he was frightened and ran
To Khadijah for comfort,
She and her Christian cousin
Comforted him. ‘Waraqah’ knew
About prophets and what happen
To them with the Angel massener
‘Gabriel’, so he told Mohammad
That he is the final prophet
Whom all people of heavenly
Religions are waiting for.

If Mohammad was a sex maniac,
Would he marry an elderly lady,
Who was fifteen years
Older than him? ! It is true
She was one of the most
Beautiful women in Makkah,
But still she was not that young,
But who cares when the soul
Experiences true love,
All people’s common rules
Disappear, Hence, we never heard
Mohammad hurt Khadijah
With a word or action
Or asked her to imitate young girls.

    It' wonderful to put such a great example in rhyme to inspire others and there is great message in your poem, specially the line'or asked her to imitate young girls' such deep love and satisfaction they enjoyed. (Report) Reply

Led by a single star,
