8. The Prophet’s (peace be upon him) father had left only ashe-camel and a slave-girl in heritage for him; so he startedhis life in a state of poverty. Then a time came when thewealthiest lady among the Quraish, Khadijah, first madehim her partner in trade, then married him, and he tookcharge of all her trade and business. Thus, he not onlybecame wealthy but his riches in no way were dependent onthe resources of his wife; his own hard work and abilityhad gone a long way towards promoting her trade andcommerce.
