Ḥind bt. ʾAbū ʾUmayya (Arabic: هند بنت أبو أمیة), known as Umm Salama (Arabic: أُمّ سَلَمه), was a wife of the Prophet (s) and one of the persons who were called Umm al-Mu'minin. She immigrated to Abyssinia together with Muslims and was the first person who immigrated to Medina.

She loved Imam al-Husayn (a) very much and after his martyrdom, mourned for him.

She accepted Islam in the first years of the Bi'tha and immigrated to Abyssinia with a group of Muslims led by Ja'far b. Abi Talib following the order of the Prophet (s). In 4/625, after her husband died, she married the Prophet (s). Most historians have mentioned that she passed away after the Event of 'Ashura.

Relation with the Ahl al-Bayt (a)

Umm Salama always tried to be with the Ahl al-Bayt (a). According to reports, after the Prophet (s) passed away, Umm Salama was one of the defenders of the Ahl al-Bayt (a), so that she defended Lady Fatima (a) against Abu Bakr regarding the Prophet's (s) inheritance for Lady Fatima (a) and that year she was deprived of it.


When Imam al-Husayn (a) went out of Medina towards Mecca, he (a) trusted the Trusts of Imamate to Umm Salama. After Imam al-Sajjad (a) returned from Karbala, Umm Salama gave Imam Ali's (a) books of knowledge, Signs and possessions of Imams (a) trusted to her to Imam al-Sajjad (a) and this is a good proof of her trustworthiness of Umm Salama before Imams (a).

mother of Umar b Abi Salma Makhzumi another great companion of Imam Ali

It is why Imam Ali (as) called one of his sons Umar not because of second Caliph.
