Died630 C.E
HouseBanu Sa'ad

Islam develops cohesion in society for general benefit of mankind. It promotes strong bonds parents and children. It expands relationship to wet nurses, serving infants. If child is rear and suckle by other than real mother, she is accorded status of additional mother called Umm Ridah; her husband is treated as father of child, and her children real brothers and sisters prohibit marriages with them. Thus, women who nurse children become mothers by milk-relation with rights under Islamic law. Suckle child is considered as full sibling to other children, and as mahram to women No other religion accords such status to suckling mothers. When Holy Prophet was still infant, group of ladies visited Makkah to take new born babies to open desert environment as per custom of town. Halima Saadia, from Banu Saad tribe, was that fortunate lady who took Muhammad, then just-eight-day-old, to foster care. Other ladies of group could get babies from rich families, but opted for this orphan as her father, Abdullah, had died before his birth. Her companions were apparently happy with their findings, but nobody knew that Halima was carrying baby that was to become arguably greatest personality in human history. He was with blessings from Almighty Allah. And it occurs instantly. Her breast was filled with milk; her mount got strength and ran ahead of caravan. When she arrives home, her goats give much more milk to family. Halima realized it was not just normal baby, but angel of blessings. Halima Saadia was daughter of Abdullah bin Harith and wife of Harith Abu Zowaib. When she brought bless child home, she had daughter named Shaima and her sucking son, Abdullah. Shaima was about five years old and she used to her mother take care of Mohammed. She would bath him and take him for walks and always him with love. Shaima witnesses change that happened in her family from poverty to comfort because of blessing of this child. She used sing songs about him and say: Our Lord! Keep Muhammad alive for us so that I can see him become adolescent, then leader. Suppress his enemies and those who are of him, and give him everlasting glory! Time 24 months passed swiftly and occasion came when young Muhammad was to depart from Halima. Shaima was shocked and very sad to see him go. Halima brings child back to Makkah but she weeps while separating him from her breast. Mother Amina was moved by her love and gave child back to Halima to be raised in Banu Saad region near Taif. It is said that returned to Makkah when he was about five years of age.

Relationship with Muhammad

Aminah bint Wahb, mother of Muhammad, was waiting for arrival of Banu sa'd women within tribe of Banu sa'd were wet nurses. They would take children of Mecca to desert and teach them classical Arabic. In return, they would receive salary from family of child in Mecca. No one would take him to him because he was orphan so they would not receive salary to take care of him. Halimah felt sad that every woman in her tribe had received child except her. So she told her husband Al-Harith by God it is oppressive to me to return to my companions without new infant to nurse. Surely I should go back and take orphan boy and accept him. Her husband replied there would be blame if you do so it maybe that God would bless us for doing so. Immediately after accepting him, blessing to her and family. Her husband's flock during time of great famine was healthy and producing milk while rest of people's flock's were dying. Strange And Mysterious Event Happened When He Was 5 Years Old. Muhammad's foster brother was playing with him, then suddenly Halimah and husband saw their son come running back and shouting Two dressed in white grabbed my brother and cut his chest. So then Halimah and Al-Harith ran to to find his pale face. When they asked him what had happen, he said two men came and opened my chest and took portion of it. After this happen, Halimah took Muhammad back to Mecca and told his mother what happen. Then she knew that he was special and would grow to be someone great and special.

Death

Wet nurses come Mecca to feed children. It was custom at that time in Makkah that families send their children to live for while with Beduin nurse who lived in desert. This was healthier for their bodies to be around natural environment instead of living in city. They prefer that fathers of children fed were still alive. Although Muhammad's father dead, Halimah took him just eight days after he was born. He grew up in Hudaybiyah, then in Medina before he returned to his mother, Aminah bint Wahb. Years after Muhammad's mother died and he became married to Khadijah, Halimah came to him complaining her poverty. He asked Khadijah to her 40 sheep. After Muhammad get his first revelation, Halimah and her husband came Muhammad and embrace Islam. When she came to Muhammad on day of Hunayn, he took off his robe and put it on ground for her to sit. So when group of nurses arrive at Makkah city and they pick up most of children, last nurse arrives with her husband riding donkey and old camel. She found only one orphan boy had no father to pay her. She was ready go back but she did not want to return without baby. She decided to go back and pick up orphan. As soon she lifts that boy, her life changes and becomes filled with immense good fortune and blessings. Both, Muhammad and nurse's child were fully fed even though previous night and before reaching Makkah, there was no milk for her child. Old Camel, Which Had Not Given Drop Of Milk, Was Soon Over Flowing With Milk. Although she was last woman leaving Makkah on her donkey, she passed her friends. This was indeed great blessing for her and for this poor Bedouin family. After two years, was returned to his mother Amina. She told Amina about great blessings that she had received when Muhammad was in her care, but soon, was persuaded by Halima and her husband to return child back with them for another two years to protect him from spreading disease in Makkah.
