But when Muhammad S.A.W.W became a Prophet, then considering the responsibilities of a prophet; Khadijah R.A handed over all her goods/business to Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W and made him the owner …

  • Would it be possible edit to include a summary of the conclusions from the YouTube video please? Jul 17, 2020 at 1:23
