Who were the first believers in the Prophet Muhammad (s), and what was their work for Islam?
The first person to believe in Prophet Muhammad’s message was Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s). The second person was Khadija, the wife of the Prophet. The third was Ja’far ibn Abi Talib.
All three of the above worked tirelessly for the sake of Islam throughout their lives. Imam Ali (as) spent his life fighting for the sake of Islam and was eventually martyred. Ja’far was also martyred in the Battle of Mu’ta. Khadija spent all her wealth and effort for the propagation of Islam and was the most beloved of the wives of the Prophet (pbuh).
