In this world, every day thousands to millions of people are being born and others goes to departure for never having chance to come back in our world. When we look behind and read the history then we come to know about few immortal beings, indeed they are alive with us because their high status that they achieved by living life in such a great way, and became examples for us till the world end.
It's urged that we not only remind them but also follow their path and adopt their ways of life so shall we get success like them. Islam is a religion that give women high status. Lets recalls our memories about four greatest women of Paradise. Indeed these great ladies are true source of strength and inspiration.
Hazart Anas (May Allah Be Pleased With Him) reports that Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has said: "The best women of mankind are four: Maryam daughter of `Imraan, Asiya wife of Pharaoh, Khadija daughter of Khuwailid, and Fatima the daughter of the Messenger of Allaah." [Bukhari and Muslim]
This hadith is about four women who acquired perfection in faith and character by virtue of their devotion, patience and morality. Their lives are guidance and examples for all believers, especially in times of hardship, difficulty and struggle.

Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra(May Allah Be Pleased With Her) is very special beacuse Allah grant her with such a great gift, the most awaited last Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) as her husband.
It is a great honor that the first person to embrace Islam was a woman. She was the first to bear witness that there is no god except Allah and that her husband is the Messenger of Allah. Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra(May Allah Be Pleased With Her) was the first person to believe in Allah and His Messenger and believe in all that he brought. Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (May Allah Be Pleased With Her) always gave a compassionate smile and truthful, assuring and reinforcing words to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) which strengthened him in his mission to carry out the command of Allah and His order.
Khadija-tul-Kubra (May Allah Be Pleased With Her) was referred to by the nickname, “Tahira” which meant “pure one” because she would safeguard her chastity and honor.
Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (May Allah Be Pleased With Her) never worship idols.
There is a lesson in Ummul-Mumineen Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (May Allah Be Pleased With Her)'s life. She accepted and started working for the religion of Islam after the first revelation. At the time of first revelation she consoled Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him),
"Do not worry," she said, "for by Him who has dominion over Khadijah's soul, I hope that you are the Prophet of this nation. Allah would never humiliate you, for you are good to your relatives, you are true to your word, you help those who are in need, you support the weak, you feed the guest and you answer the call of those who are in distress." And these words comforted Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) .
She never said any unpleasant thing whenever she talked to The Prophet. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said about her; "She believed in me when all others disbelieved; she held me truthful when others called me a liar; she sheltered me when others abandoned me; she comforted me when others shunned me; and Allah granted me children by her while depriving me of children by other women."
Hazrat Khadija-tul-Kubra (May Allah Be Pleased With Her) truly was a righteous woman, also a role-model for women today. She led the example of a good, loving wife. She was a faithful wife, loving mother, loyal friend, honest trades-person, and true believer of Allah. She also showed us how to forget the desires of this life and work only for the good of Islam.
Considering her high position, it might be easier to realize why she gained the glory of being Prophet's wife.
