About [6] "Umme Habeeba" Ramlah binte Abu Sufyaan

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramlah_bint_Abi_sufyan

She was the daughter of Abu Sufyan ibn Harb and Safiyyah bint Abi al-'As. Abu Sufyan was the chief of the Umayya clan, and he was the leader of the whole Quraysh tribe and the most powerful opponent of Muhammad in the period 624-630. However, he later accepted Islam and became a Muslim warrior.

The first Ummayad caliph, Muawiyah I, was Ramla's half-brother, and Uthman ibn Affan was her maternal first cousin and paternal second cousin.

Marriage to Ubayd-Allah ibn Jahsh[edit] Her first husband was Ubayd-Allah ibn Jahsh,[3] a brother of Zaynab bint Jahsh, whom Muhammad married in 627.

Ubayd-Allah and Ramla were among the first people to accept Islam. In 616, in order to avoid hostilities from Quraish, they both emigrated to Abyssinia (Ethiopia), where she gave birth to her daughter, Habibah bint Ubayd-Allah.

Ubayd-Allah later converted to Christianity. He tried to persuade Ramla to do the same, but she held on to Islam. His conversion led to their separation. They all continued to live in Abyssinia until Ubayd-Allah's death in 627.

Marriage to Muhammad

Ramla died in the year 45 A.H. (664 or 665 C.E.) during the Caliphate of her brother, Muawiyah I. She was buried in the Jannat al-Baqi cemetery next to other wives of Muhammad
