 Umm Aiman (May Allah be pleased with him)

Umm Aiman was a maid of the Prophet's father and it was she who brought him to Makkah from Madinah after his mother's death when he was only six years old. After the death of her first husband, she married Zaid ibn Harithah. The Prophet loved her as his own mother and had a great regard for her. When the Prophet fell ill after despatching a force under the leadership of Usamah ibn Zaid to avenge the losses in the Battle of Mu'tah, it was Umm Aiman who recognised the symptoms of the coming death of the Prophet and sent a messenger after Usamah informing him of the sad incident and bringing him back.
 
It is narrated in Tabaqat Ibn Sa'd that when Umm Aiman was weeping bitterly at the death of the Prophet, she said, "I know that we are separated from the Prophet, but I weep for this: that the chain of revelation has now ended."
 
Umm Aiman had not only brought up the Prophet in her lap, but had also seen his father, mother, grandfather and other elders of the family. He therefore loved and respected her and often went to her house.
