Arabic name-forming (أُمّ) which actually means - "mother". Used as an attributive, to make a compound of which the first part is Umm.
Hind bint Abi Umayya (580 - 680) also known as Hind bint Suhayl or Umm Salama (Mother of Salama) was one of the thirteen Prophet Muhammad`s wives: (Khadija, Sawda, Aisha, Hafsa, Zaynab (bint Khuzayma), Zaynab (bint Jahsh), Juwayriyya, Safiyya, Ramla, Maymuna, Mariyah, Rayhana) and a Mother of the Believers.
Umm Salama and her husband, Abdullah ibn Abd-al-Asad, were among the first who converted to Islam. Only Ali and a few others were Muslims before them.
Her husband was killed from the wounds he received in the Battle of Uhud. Hind had one child named Umar bin Abi Salama.
Following Abdullah ibn Abdulasad’s death in the battle of Uhud she became known as Ayyin al-Arab (the eyes of the Arab) - the one who had lost her husband. She had no family in Medina except her small children, but she was given support by both the Muhajirun and Ansar. When she completed the Iddah (i.e. the waiting period of a woman who is either divorced, seeks an annulment or her husband dies which in this case is) four months and ten days, Abu Bakr and then Umar asked to marry her but she declined. Muhammad then approached her and she accepted.
Umm Salama was married to Muhammad at the age of 29. Only his sixth and seventh wives (Umm Salamah and Zaynab, respectively) were his direct cousins whom he had known since their childhood. Umm Salamah was a widow with 3 children and a fourth born almost immediately after their marriage.
When Fatima bint Asad died, Prophet Muhammad chose her as the guardian of Al Sayeda Fatimah Al Zahra. She was buried in the Baqi Cemetery. She was the last surviving member of the Mothers of the Believers.
