    Haleemah as-Sa'diyah (RA), the prophet's nurse

    Breast-feeding of babies by women who are not their biological mothers and allowing such babies to grow up in the deserts are some of the signs of nobility and high status among the Arabs of pre-Islamic era. Haleemah came to Makkah, in the company of some women from the clan of Banu Sa'd, hoping to find babies to nurse. Each woman except Haleemah succeeded in getting a nursling. Haleemah said: "There was no woman among us who was not offered the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon), and, as soon as she was told that he was an orphan, she would reject him. We would say, 'What is his mother going to give us?' For, we only expected recompense from the baby's father.

    By Allah, each of my colleagues was able to get a nursling except me. But when I did not succeed in getting any for myself, I told my husband, al-Harith ibn 'Abdul-'Uzza, 'By Allah, I would not like to be the only one from among my colleagues who would go back home without a nursling. I am going to take that orphan boy.' My husband said, 'You can go and take him. Perhaps, Allah will bless us through him.' I went and took the boy. By Allah, I only took
    him because I could not find any other."

    Haleemah continued: "As soon as I took him and brought him to my riding animal, I breast-fed him as much as Allah would permit and he drank until he was satiated. His brother also drank until he was satiated. My husband then went to our old camel and milked her and both of us drank until we were satiated. And we passed a good night. In the morning, my husband told me, "Haleemah, by Allah, I could see that you have accepted a blessed child. Can't you observe the blessings we have been witnessing since we took him, and Allah continued to increase us in blessing?!" We set out on the return journey back to our village. By Allah, my donkey was so fast that none of those of my colleagues could catch up with her. Surprised at this, they said, "Daughter of Abu Dhu' ayb! Was this not your donkey on which you set out with us?!" I said, "Yes, by Allah, she is!" They then said, "By Allah, there is something about her!"

    When we arrived at the land of Banu Sa'd and before that, I did not know a land more barren that our land - my sheep would graze and then come home satisfied and full of milk. We would milk as we liked, and none of our neighbors could be able to have even a drop of milk from their own sheep. Their sheep would go out grazing and would come home with empty stomachs. They would then tell their shepherds, "You should consider where the sheep graze." Yet their sheep would come back with empty stomachs while mine would come home satisfied, and we would milk as we liked.
