Ummul Mu’miniin Zaynab Bint Khuzaymah| Part 4
Even before Islam, our next mother Zainab Bint Khuzaymah was known as the mother of the poor. She was extremely compassionate when it came to the less fortunate people. Zainab Bint Khuzaymah came from a family that was well known and extremely important people. Her Mother was Hind Bint Auf and Her father was Abdullahi bin Amr.
Zainab was married to Abdullah Bin Jahash who died in the battle of Uhud. Her mother was known as the world’s most noble mother-in-law because she married off all her daughters to the noblest men during the prophet’s time. Her daughters were married to the following men: Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib, Jafar Bin Abi Talib, Abu Bakr as Siddique, Hamza Bin Abdul Muttalib, and two of her daughters became wives to our prophet.
After Abdullahi Bint Jahseh’s death, Zainab has left a poor widow with no one to look after her and her kids. After the prophet heard, he offered her a marriage proposal and she accepted. Unfortunately, there is not that much information about the life of our mother Zainab because she passed away months after the marriage. In his lifetime the prophet buried two of his wives but our mother Zainab Bint khuzaymah was the only one who led the funeral prayer himself. May Allah have mercy on her and all of the companions of the prophet.
