His Marriage to Sawdah May Allah be pleased with her

His Marriage to Sawdah - May Allah be pleased with her

 in Shawwal, the tenth year of Prophethood:


The death of Khadijah left the Prophet Pbuh lonely.

The name of Sawdah was suggested to him for marriage which he accepted. This lady had suffered many hardships for the sake of Islam.

She was an early convert to the Islamic Faith and it was by her persuasion that her husband had embraced Islam. On the second emigration to Abyssinia (Ethiopia), Sawdah had accompanied her husband As-Sakran bin ‘Amr.

He died on their way back to Makkah leaving her in a terrible state of destitution. She was the first woman for the Prophet Pbuh to marry after the death of Khadijah.

Some years later she granted her turn with the Prophet Pbuh to her co-wife, ‘Aishah.[]
