An Ansari Woman’s Anxiety About the Prophet ﷺ

In the battle of Uhud, the Muslims suffered heavy losses and quite a large number of them were killed. When the sensational news of their heavy casualties reached Madinah, the women came out of their houses eager to know the actual details of these casualties. On seeing the crowd of people at a place, a woman of the Ansar anx- iously inquired:”How is the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam)?” When it was told that her father was killed in the battle, she uttered ‘Inna Lillah’ and impatiently repeated the same question about the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam). This time she was told that her husband was no more, her brother was dead and that her son too was slain. With ever- growing anxiety, she repeated the same question about the welfare of the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam).

She was told that Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam was safe and sound, but she would not rest contented, and insisted on seeing him herself. When at last she had satisfied her eyes with his sight. she said:

“O Prophet of Allah, every affliction is eased and every worry removed with the blessing of seeing you.”

According to another version,

“O Prophet of Allah! you are dearer to me than my parents. The death of my kinsmen has lost all its sting for me when I have seen you living.”

There are several incidents of this kind that occurred after the battle of Uhud. It is, perhaps, for the large number of such incidents that different names have been reported by different narrators about these women. In fact, such in- cidents happened in large numbers with many women of that time.
