 Umm Haram Bint Milhan (May Allah be pleased with him)

Umm Haram was a woman of great excellence and reputation. Umm Sulaim was her sister. In the Battle of Uhud, she lost both her husband and son, but bore this shock with patience and perseverance. She had another terrible shock when her dear brother Haram ibn Milhan was brutally murdered by the enemies of Islam in the famous incident of Bi'r Ma'una. Umm Haram was overtaken by grief but submitted patiently to the Will of Allah. The Prophet also felt this brutal murder of Haram very much.
 
The Prophet had a great regard for Umm Haram and her sister Umm Sulaim and he often visited their houses and took meals with them. One day, after the Farewell Pilgrimage, the Prophet went to Quba' and visited Umm Haram in her house and had a meal and then rested there. Umm Haram began to comb his hair with her fingers when he went to sleep. But after a while, he woke up and said smilingly, "I saw in a dream some people of my Ummah on a sea journey in the Way of Allah." She said, "O Allah's Messenger! Pray that I also may have the honour to be in the company of those people." The Prophet prayed and again went to sleep. After some time, he woke up smiling and narrated the same dream. She again requested the same prayer. The Prophet said that she was with this party (Zurqani and Isaba).
 
Umm Haram was very pleased at this news, which was fulfilled in 28 Hijrah when Mu'awiyah invaded Cyprus with a fleet of ships and Umm Haram accompanied the Muslim force. She fell from her mount and died. She was buried in that island (Usd al-Ghabah; Zurqani; Bukhari and Ibn Athir).
 
A few ahadith are narrated from Umm Haram and among her narrators are famous people like Anas ibn Malik and Ubadah ibn Samit.
