Dear Brother / Sister,
-Two wives of the prophet (pbuh) passed away while he was alive.
There was no religious decree about funeral prayers at the time when Hz. Khadijah died.
Thus, the prophet did not lead her funeral prayer.
His second wife was Zaynab bint Khuzayma. As there was a religious decree for the funeral prayer when she died, the prophet (PBUH) led her funeral prayer. And she was the only wife of the prophet who had this honor.
Hz. Zaynab bint Khuzayma, passed away for about two or three months (in some narrations eight months) after her marriage with the prophet (pbuh) (see Ibn Qayyim, Zadu’l-Maad, 1/103; Ibnul-Athir, Usdul-Ghaba, V, 297)
