The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was away at the battle, so he could not take part in her funeral prayers. When he came back from Badr, he went to her grave and became very sad. The women started crying loudly. Umar went up to stop them.

But the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) held him back and said, ‘There is no harm in weeping but crying loudly and lamenting are acts of Satan. Fatima, his youngest daughter, was very sad and sat at the grave of her sister and wept. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) constantly wiped her tears.

Ruqayya (رضي الله عنه)had a son who died when he was seven years old. After this, she did not bear another son.


قُلِ اللّٰهُمَّ مٰلِكَ الۡمُلۡكِ تُؤۡتِى الۡمُلۡكَ مَنۡ تَشَآءُ وَتَنۡزِعُ الۡمُلۡكَ مِمَّنۡ تَشَآءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَنۡ تَشَآءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَنۡ تَشَآءُ​ ؕ بِيَدِكَ الۡخَيۡرُ​ؕ اِنَّكَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ قَدِيۡرٌ‏

Say: ‘O Allah, Lord of all dominion! You give dominion to whom You will and take away dominion from whom You will, and You exalt whom You will, and abase whom You will. In Your Hand is all good. Surely You are All-Powerful. (Al Imran 3:26)

In the Sahih Bukhari, it has been recorded that the Prophet once came to the mosque carrying Umamah on his shoulder and led the prayer carrying her in his arms. When the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) did Ruku and Sajdah, he put Umamah down, and when he stood up he took her again in his arms.

Once, somebody, perhaps Najashi, sent the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) expensive gifts that included a beautiful necklace. The Prophet announced that he would give it to the one who was dearest to him. 

Everyone thought it would be given to Aisha, the prophet’s wife, who was very dear to the Prophet. But the Prophet called the Umamah and put the necklace around her neck himself, at the time of the Prophet’s death, Umamah was grown up.

After the death of Fatimah, Ali ibn Talib was married to Umamah. It has been reported that Abul Aas had made a will and had instructed Zubayr ibn al-Awwam, who was his cousin, to perform this nikah The marriage of Umamah took place under Zubayr’s supervision and he read the Khutbah of nikkah.

When Ali ibn Talib died in the year 40th Hijri, he had also made a will that Mughira ibn Naufil, a grandson of Abdul Muttalib should marry her. Meanwhile, Amir Muawiyah also sent a proposal of marriage and asked Marwan to spend one thousand dinars on the marriage ceremony. However, before this, Umamah had agreed to marry Mughira, who married her after having the permission of Hasan ibn Ali.
