I'd like to hear more about Khadija as most Muslim histories and seerahs tend to gloss over her. Methinks it's 'cos she was Big Mo's boss and the opposite of the dumb, submissive housewife that many Muslim communities aspire their women to become.
Thats definitely one big reason, but imo the bigger reason is that she positively disproves all the myths Muslims seek to preach, that in jahiliyyah period women had no rights, they were chattels, they never inherited property from their parents etc, etc.
Khadija is a woman who inherited immense wealth from her father Khuwaylid
althugh she even had 2 brothers
(and 1 sister), she was free to run her own business, she could propse to & marry a man 15 years her junior etc-in short a woman with complete control over her destiny & treated extremely well by her society.
There are other such remarkable women in Muhammad's time too, like Sajah the female Prophetess who founded her own religion & led a campaign against Muhammad, but none so central to Muhammad's story, as Khadija.
Khadija's story runs contrary to the self serving story Muslims have tried to build & propagate about women's rights in the jahiliyyah era. Htats' why they're so keen to gloss over her.
Muhammad must really have existed, & many of these incidents must be true, coz it'd be an extremely stupid writer who'd write in the story of such an empowered woman like Muhammad's first wife Khadija in the jahiliyyah era, which'd only cast a serious doubt about Islamic claims of women lacking inheritance(& many other) rights pre Islam.
