The claim that Islam was supported by `Aly's sword and Khadijah's money

A: Firstly, `Aly ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) fought in Jihad (striving in the cause of Allah) with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and participated in all the battles except the Battle of Tabuk. The Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet - may Allah be pleased with them), other than `Aly participated in Jihad as well, such as Abu Bakr, `Umar, `Uthman, Khalid ibn Al-Walid, and others.Secondly, Khadijah (may Allah be pleased with her) was the first woman to embrace Islam. The Messenger (peace be upon him) held her in high esteem and she used to console him, relieve his distresses, and support him. Jibril (peace be upon him) revealed that the Lord of the worlds sent her greetings. Also, the Prophet (peace be upon him) gave her the glad tidings of having a house in Jannah (Paradise) where there will be neither disturbance nor fatigue. The claim that Islam spread by the wealth of Khadijah is false. Spending for the cause of Allah was only prescribed after Hijrah (the Prophet's migration to Al-Madinah) and Khadijah (may Allah be pleased with her) died before Hijrah. Examples of Muslims who gave their wealth in the cause of Allah are Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq, `Umar, `Uthman ibn `Affan (may Allah be pleased with them) and other Sahabah from among Al-Muhajirun (Emigrants from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and Al-Ansar (Helpers, inhabitants of Al-Madinah who supported the Prophet) (may Allah be pleased with the Sahabah).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
