Safiyyah radiyallahu ‘anha

Safiyyah radiyallahu ‘anha

 

She is the aunt of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When his uncle, Hamzah radiyallahu ‘anhu was martyred in Uhud, he said: “I am thinking of the suffering of Safiyyah, or else I would have not buried Hamzah. I would have left him for the wild animals to eat of him and on the day of judgement he will arise from their stomachs.”

Lesson: O women! Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam took her into consideration on account of her piety. You also become pious so that you can be eligible for the pleasure of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.
