Umm-e-aimen R.a

Prophet S.A.W described Umm-e-Aimen as “his mother after his own mother. She is the rest of my family”. Barakah or Umm Aiman was the name of the woman whom the noble Prophet esteemed so highly. She was the first person to hold him in her arms when he was born and the only person who knew him from that point until his death. She was one of the few Muslims who the Prophet assured of a place in Paradise. "Be a mother to him, Barakah. And don't ever leave him," Amina instructed her about her son as she lay dying. Umm Aiman did not fail in her responsibility. She was bought by a noble and gentle man: Abdullah, the son of Abdul Muttalib. The father of the Prophet. It was only after the Prophet married Khadija (may Allah be pleased with her) that she married, and that too, on their insistence. She married Ubayd ibn Zayd from the Khazraj tribe of Yathrib and they had a son named Aiman, thus her name Umm Aiman. She became a widow again, after Zayd was killed during the Battle of Mutah in Syria. She also lived to see her son's martyrdom at the Battle of Hunayn.Ayman lived to see her other "son" die as well: the Prophet. But it was not for him she cried. When asked, she said, "By Allah, I knew that the Messenger of Allah would die but I cry not because the revelation from on high has come to an end for us."Umm-e-Aiman died when Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) was Khalifa.
