The house belonging to Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her), the wife of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), was among the archaeological sites that were preserved during various periods of history.
This lecture took place on 11th May 2000 at the School for Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London. It focused on the history of the house of Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her), from the marriage of the Messenger (peace be upon him), until his migration (Hijrah), and hence, the passing of the house into the hands of 'Aqil, and then Mu'awiya ibn Abu Sufyan, then the Abbasid caliphs, then the Mamluks, the Ottomans, the time of King Abdul Aziz, up to the excavations undertaken by H.E. Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani in 1989. It represents a precise description, enriched by images of what was discovered.
