Saudah bint Zam’ah

Sawdah bint Zam’ah was the first woman to enter the prophet Muhammad after Khadijah passed away. Sawdah was very nice, polite and generous person she was one of the first people to accept Islam.
Her father was Zamah ibn Qays. He was from the Amir ibn luayy clan of the Quraysh tribe. Her mother was Al-Shamus bint Qays she was from the Najjar clan of the Khazraj tribe in Madinah. She was married As-Sakran ibn Amar. Thay had one son Abdur Rahman ibn Sakran who was killed in the battle of Jalula. Sawdah and her husband immigrated to Abyssinia at the order of the Prophet Muhammad. Sawdah was the first woman to immigrate to Abyssinia in the cause of Allah. Sawdah had the pleasure of immigrating twice first to Abyssinia then to Al-Madinah.
One night Sawdah had a dream that the Prophet came to her house and grabbed her by the nape of her neck. Later she told her husband this dream and he interpreted it for her he said after I die you will marry the Prophet. Then she had another dream where the moon fell in to her lap and again she told the husband the dream and he said that he will die soon and you will marry the Prophet.
And sure enough a few days passed and her husband fell ill and passed away. Now Sawdah was living with her old blind father. One of her friends was Khawlah bint Hakim she was the wife of Uthman bin Madh’aon. One day she visited the Prophet and said that he was sad and lonely and he missed his wife Khadijah and that he should get remarried. He replied that she was right but who could he possibly marry that would be willing to take on the responsibility of his household and daughters.
She said she knew a lady if he agreed she would approach that lady. On learning the identity of the lady the Prophet agreed. Khawlah was happy that he accepted and went to see Sawdah immediately. She told Sawdah that she had great news for her.
When she herd of the proposal she was over joyed. She told Khawlah to go and ask her father and of course he was over whelmed to have his daughter become the companion and wife of the Prophet.
Soon after the marriage took place the Prophet gave a mahr of 400 dirhams to his wife Sawdah. Sawdah was of course very happy moving into the house of Khadijah where the Prophet lived with his daughters.
After the Prophets farewell Hajj he told his wives to stay in their homes in Al-Madinah. So after the Prophet passed away Sawdah and Zainab bint Jahsh did not travel thay stayed in their homes in Al-Madinah saying that they performed Hajj and Umrah in the company of the Prophet and that they would obay the command of Allah.
Sawdah lived till she was eighty she passed away during the caliphate of Umar bin Khattab and was buried in Jannatul-Baqi.
