From Gulf News:
"Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) married Sawdah bint Zam’ah ..... a mature woman, around 40 years of age, and a mother of five children. This marriage gave Sawdah an uplift in her life, for she had been mourning her husband, Al-Sakran ibn Amr....... She was now married to God’s messenger, who was renowned for his fine character and compassion, in addition to the great qualities that fitted him to be the recipient of God’s final message to mankind.

Sawdah’s action speaks much about her character. She was a woman who loved to be kind to others, and enjoyed giving them what pleases them."

One of the many notable women of the early period when Islam was establishing itself. And what many may not realise is that, like Christianity, some of the very earliest supporters of Islam were women .....
