Hind bint ‘Utbah radiyallahu ‘anha

Hind bint ‘Utbah radiyallahu ‘anha

 

She is the mother of Mu’awiyah radiyallahu ‘anhu, who in turn is the brother-in-law of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Once she addressed Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and said to him: “Prior to becoming a Muslim, I did not desire anyone being disgraced more than you. Now that I have become a Muslim, I do not desire honour for anyone more than you.” He replied: “I am also in the same condition.”


Lesson: One of the things we learn about her is that she was honest. The other thing that we learn is that she loved Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and he also loved her. O women! You should also speak the truth. Love Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and carry out acts which will cause him to love you as well.
