CHAPTER: THE MERIT OF JOINING A NAVAL EXPEDITION FOR JIHAD  

No. 4699

It has been reported on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to visit Umm Haram daughter of Milhan (who was the sister of his foster-mother or his father's aunt). She was the wife of 'Ubada b. Samit, One day the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) paid her a visit. She entertained him with food and then sat down to rub his head. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) dozed off and when he woke up (after a while), he was laughing. She asked: What made you laugh. Messenger of Allaah? He said: Some people from my Umma were presented to me who were fighters in the way of Allaah and were sailing in this sea. (Gliding smoothly on the water), they appeared to be kings or like kings (sitting) on thrones (the narrator has a doubt about the actual expression used by the Prophet). She said: Messenger of Allaah, pray to Allaah that He may include me among these warriors. He prayed for her. Then he placed his head (down) and dozed off (again). He woke up laughing, as before. (She said) I said: Messenger of Allaah, what makes you laugh? He replied: A people from my Umma were presented to me. They were fighters in Allaah's way. (He described them in the same words as he had described the first warriors.) She said: Messenger of Allaah, pray to God that He may include me among these warriors. He said: You are among the first ones.

Umm Haram daughter of Milhan sailed in the aea in the time of Mu'awiya. When she came out of the sea and (was going to mount a riding animal) she fell down and died.

When he woke up, he was laughing. I said: Messenger of Allaah, what made you laugh? He said: I saw a people from my followers sailing on the surface of the sea (looking) like kings (sitting) on their thrones. I said: Pray to Allaah that He may include me among them. He said: You will hip among them. He had a (second) ntip, woke up and was laughing. I asked him (the reason for his laughter). He gave the same reply. I said: Pray to Allaah that He may include me among them. He said: You are among the first ones. Anas said: 'Ubada b. Samit married her. He joined a naval expedition and took her along with him. When she returned, a mule was brought for her. While mounting it she fell down, broke her neck (and died).
