An Ansari Woman's concern about Nabi SAW
In the battle of Uhud, the Muslims suffered heavy losses and quite a large number of them were killed. When the shocking news of their heavy losses reached Madinah Munawwarah, the women came out of their houses eager to know the actual details of those killed. On seeing a crowd of people at a place, a concerned woman of the Ansar asked: "How is Nabi SAW?" When she was told that her father was killed in the battle, she said 'Inna Lillahi' and impatiently repeated the same question about Nabi SAW,
This time she was told that her husband was no more, her brother was dead and that her son too was slain. With ever growing concern, she repeated the same question about the welfare of Nabi SAW. She was told that he was safe and sound, but she could not be at rest and insisted on seeing Nabi SAW herself.When at last she had satisfied her eyes with his sight, she said:
"O Nabi of Allah, every difficulty is eased and every worry removed with the blessing of seeing you." According to another version, she herself clung to Nabi's SAW robes and said: "O Nabi of Allah! You are dearer to me than my parents. The death of my family has lost its pain for me when I have seen you living.''
There are several incidents of this kind that occurred after the battle of Uhud. Perhaps, it is for the large number of such incidents that different names have been reported by different narrators about these women. In fact, such incidents happened in large numbers with many women of that time.
