    The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had two foster mothers in his life. The first one was Halima Saadia, from the Banu Saad tribe, who took care of him in the early years of his life. The second one was Saubia, the maid of the Prophet Muhammad uncles brother, who briefly took care of him after his return from Halima home.

    Both of these women played a minor role in the Prophet life compared to his mother Aminah, who passed away when he was six years old, and his paternal grandfather Abdul Muttalib, who raised him after his mother’s death. However, the Prophet remained grateful to his foster mother Halima Saadia throughout his life and referred to her as his “mother” even after he became a prophet.
