The Prophet (ﷺ) was once sleeping in her house, when he woke up smiling.

Umme Haram (رضي الله عنها) said: “O Prophet! You are dearer to me than my parents, tell me what made you smile.”

He said: “I saw in my dream a few of my followers going for Jihad across the sea. They, in their barges, looked like kings sitting on their thrones.”

Umme Haram (رضي الله عنها) said: “O, Prophet of Allah! Pray that I may also be one among those people.”

He replied: “Rest assured, you will be one of them.”

He went to sleep again, and got up smiling for the second time. On Umme Haram’s query he said: “I again saw some more people going for Jihad across the sea.”

Umme Haram (رضي الله عنها) requested him to pray for her joining them also, he said: “No, you are with the first group only.”

  • During the Khilafat of Usman (رضي الله عنه), Amir Muawiyah (رضي الله عنه), the Governor of Syria, sought permission to send an expeditionary force to Cyprus Island. This permission was granted by Usman (رضي الله عنه). Umme Haram (رضي الله عنها), with her husband Ubadah bin Samit (رضي الله عنه) was in that force. While returning from the island she fell from her mule, broke her neck and died. She was buried in the above place.
