1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Mu‘awiyah ibn Wahab who has said the following: “I once heard abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, saying that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, once returned from an armed expedition during which a large number of Muslims were killed. Women came to him (the Messenger of Allah) asking about their people who were killed. One woman came to him (the Messenger of Allah) and asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what did so and so do ? 5 He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘What is your relation with him?’ She replied, ‘He is my father.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) said, ‘You should thank Allah and ask for your happy return to Allah; he became a martyr.’ She then did as he (the Messenger of Allah) had told her to do. Then she asked, ‘What did so and so do, O Messenger of Allah?’ He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘What is your relation with him?’ She replied, ‘He is my brother.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) said, ‘You should thank Allah and ask for your happy return to Allah; he became a martyr.’ She then did as he (the Messenger of Allah) had told her to do. She then asked, ‘What did so and so do, O Messenger of Allah?’ He (the Messenger of Allah) asked, ‘What is your relation with him?’ She replied, ‘He is my husband.’ He (the Messenger of Allah) said, ‘You should thank Allah and ask for your happy return to Allah, he became a martyr.’ She then said, ‘Woe and wretchedness is upon me!’ The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, said, ‘I did not think women have this much (loving feeling) for their husbands until I saw this woman.’”
