Posted by Hilyat Hasan - -

The heroic story of Sumayyah is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful to be observed attentively. The story remains powerful influence to the next moslem generations. She endured her life on suffer and temptation. Finally, Sumayyah end her sorrowful life with the greatness of success as syahidah. She is on the list of syuhada who will accept the incredible heaven from Allah, and life happily on His side.

Sumayyah was the wife of Yasir and mother of  Ammar. They were all died on syahid. Sumayyah was one of shahaba who become moslem at the first period of Islam on that time. Moreover, she is the first Islamic woman who fight for Islam against the unbelievers. Ibnul Atsir stated, "She is the seventh person who become moslem at the first period of Islam. She lived in suffer and sacrificed for Allah."

Ibnu Mas'ud stated "The first seventh people who defense Islam were, the Prophet muhammad, Abu Bakar, Bilal, Khabbab, Shuhaib, Ammar, dan Sumayyah."

Syaikh Ahmad Khalil Jam'ah on his book entitled Nisaa 'min' Ashri An-Nubuwwah, confirmed if Sumayyah was the only woman who always be patient with any temptations on her. There was no similar woman like her, she make her patient and endurance as the evidence of sincerity to Allah destiny.” He wrote. Those fact is based on her condition at that time. She was old but always struggle against the cruelty of unbelievers. Those because she had faith to Allah, and as a result she was succeed in passing all of the sadness and difficulties.


... Sumayyah was not alone in facing the great pain of life. She went together with her family tried to breaking those  difficulties...

Sumayyah was not alone in facing the great pain of life. She went together with her family tried to breaking those  difficulties. The injury had destroyed their body, but the great faith inside their hearts were steady like cliff mountain. Nothing could conquer to it.

It was narrated that Abu Hudzaifah bin Al-Mughirah gave Sumayyah to her mean cousin named Abu Jahal. Sumayyah was so old and weak at that time, but Sumayyah could fight against him. Abu Jahal wanted her to come to his group, as the unbelievers.

Sumayyah was kept quite while intimidating by him. Abu Jahal insulted her and said “you are not believe on what Muhammad say to you, but you just amaze with his handsomeness”. Sumayyah said nothing. She endure for the pain with so much proud, because she realized that she was more glorious than Abu Jahal and all of his followers. She felt so proud with her faith.

... Sumayyah was kept quite while intimidating by him, and Abu Jahal insulted her very much...

Ibnu Katsir described the pain faced by Sumayyah and and his family. He quote what Ibnu Ishaq had said, "Dzuhur pray was come, Yasir, and Sumayyah were going with Bani Makhzum. But, they tortured them on Makka. When the Prophet come across and see them he uttered, "O family of Yasir, please be patient, for your final destination and resting place will be Paradise."


Al-Baihaqi, narrated from Jabir bin Abdullah "The Prophet came closer to Ammar and his family while they were tortured. Then Prophet uttered “be happy, O family Yasir and Ammar, I promise to all of you a paradise." (Al-Hakim)

When the unbelievers were desperated on her patient and sincerety, they finally stabbed a spear on her body and it brought Sumayyah into her death as the first Syahidah.

... When the unbelievers were desperated on her patient and tenancy, they finally stabbed a spear on her body, and it brought Sumayyah into her death...
The intimidation and torture in most also caused her son and husband died on Allah way. They were killed but their faith is always on their heart

May Allah bless Sumayyah and her family. May Allah forgive them as the Prophet had uttered "O Allah please forgive the family of Yasir and absolutely you have done it"
