leave a comment »

Umm Sulaym bint Milhaan (رضي الله عنها) is a Muslimah about whom every Muslimah should know. She (رضي الله عنها) was from among the best women companion of the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه و سلم).

This noble soul was always with the Muslim army, taking care of the wounded soldiers more than 12 or 13 centuries before Florence Nightingale. [See Saheeh Muslim 3/1443 (no. 1810)]

In fact, even in the two most fierce battles entered by the Muslims, when defeat was close, this woman (رضي الله عنها) was in the battlefield steady like a rock while many a courageous man was fleeing under the shock of the surprise attack by the enemy. During the battle of Uhud, A’isha bint Abu Bakr (رضي الله عنها) and this woman, both of them had tucked up their garments, and they were carrying water-skins on their backs and would pour water into the mouths of the people. They would then go back (to the well), would fill them again and would return to pour water into the mouths of the soldiers. [See Saheeh Muslim 3/1443 (no. 1811)]
