Asterisk Female Companions of the Prophet | Hamna bint Jahsh
25/01/2019 The Fit Hijabi in Guest / No comments

Hz. Hamna was the daughter of Umayma bint Abdulmuttalib, the paternal aunt of the Prophet. She was also the sister of Zaynab bint Jahsh, one of the wives of the Prophet. Thus, she was sister-in-law of the Prophet. She became a Muslim in the first years of Islam. She was loyal to the Prophet with her heart. She was married to Mus’ab bin Umayr, one of the great Companions. They led a happy life.

  • Hz. Mus’ab took part in the battle of Uhud and fought heroically. 

The Muslims were about to gain a big victory but when the archers located by the Messenger of Allah left their places, the course of the battle changed. The Muslims were defeated. It was also rumored that the Messenger of Allah was martyred.

When the female Companions who were in Madinah heard this, they ran to the battlefront. Hamna bint Jahsh, the wife of Mus’ab bin Umayr, was also among them. When they heard that the Messenger of Allah was alive, they became very happy.

However, Hz. Mus’ab was martyred. In addition, Hz. Hamna’s brother Abdullah bin Jahsh and her maternal uncle Hz. Hamza were also martyred. The Prophet wanted to give this news to Hamna himself. When Hamna came over to him, he said,

“O Hamna! Show patience and seek reward from Allah!” 

Hamna said,

“O Messenger of Allah! For whom shall I show patience?” 

The Prophet said,

“For your maternal uncle Hamza.” 

Hz. Hamna was a woman who believed in qadar. She said,

“We are slaves of Allah and we will return to Him. May Allah show him mercy and forgive him! May Allah give him glad tidings and rejoice him with the reward of martyrdom!”

The Prophet said,

“O Hamna! Show patience and seek reward from Allah!” 

Hamna said,

“O Messenger of Allah! For whom shall I show patience?” 

The Prophet said,

“For your brother.” 

Hz. Hamna said in patience and resoluteness,

“We are slaves of Allah and we will return to Him. May Allah show him mercy and forgive him! May Allah give him glad tidings and rejoice him with the reward of martyrdom!”

The Prophet said,

“O Hamna! Show patience and seek reward from Allah!” 

Hamna said in suspense,

“O Messenger of Allah! For whom shall I show patience?”

The Prophet said,

“For Mus’ab bin Umayr.” 

Hz. Hamna, who had not lost her patience and resoluteness up to that time, changed suddenly. She thought about her children and started to cry by saying,

 

Thereupon, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

“There is no doubt that a man has a different place in the eye of his wife. Hamna showed patience and resoluteness when she heard about the death of her maternal uncle and brother but she could not maintain her resoluteness when she heard the death of her husband.”( Sirah, 3: 104. )

Hz. Hamna could not show the same patience for her husband but she did not oppose qadar. She calmed down with the prayer and consolation of the Messenger of Allah.

Hamnah later married Talha bin Ubaydullah, one of the ten Companions who were given the good news that they would go to Paradise. They led a happy life. They had two children called Muhammad and Imran.
