Saudah bint Zam’ah R.A.A

Posted on: Thursday, June 19, 2008

Great Women of Islam
♦ The Prophet S.A.S said, ‘Allah has commanded me to marry only with the woman of Paradise’ ♦

She was the first lady to enter the household of Prophet S.A.S (After the death of her first husband, Sakran bin Amar) after Khadijah R.A.A. She was among the first to accept Islam and also had the distinction to emigrate twice, first to Abyssiniah and then to Al-Madinah. She was a tall, healthy woman with a sense of humor.

When Saudah bint Zam’ah became old she feared that Muhammad S.A.S would divorce her and a settlement be made. Her desire to be raised on the Day of Judgement with the other members of the prophet’s wives. so she said she would entrust Aishah R.A.A the time allotted to her. It was this time the Ayat of Surah An-Nisa was revealed – 4:128 . Aishah was very touched by this gesture and they became even closer.

After the Prophet S.A.S farewell Hajj, he told his wives that they should remain in their homes as it was the Will of Allah “And stay in your homes”(33:33) . Thus Saudah did not travle after the prophet S.A.S’s death and stayed in Al-Madinah along with His other wives. Saudah was considered to be extremely generous.

Saudah S.A.S with her maturity simplicity and amiable nature came to an opportune moment into the prophet’s household providing support for her husband, motherly love for the girls and a carefree and pleasant atmosphere in the home. She died at a ripe age of 80 under the caliphate of Umar bin Khattab R.A.A and was buried in Jannatul Baqi.

As Allah says in Surah Al-Fajr that it will be said to the pious believers -” O the one in complete rest and satisfaction! Come back to your Lord – well pleased and well pleasing! Enter you then among My honoured servants, and enter you My Paradise.”(89:27-30)
