Abdullah, Mohammed's father, was married to a woman of noble parentage, named Aminah.
Aminah is reported to have been miraculously free from the pangs of childbirth when her son first saw the light.
As soon as she got to Makkah, she threw herself at Aminah's feet and burst out supplicating as she kissed them.
Not being deceived by her explanations, Aminah continued: 'Thou dost hide from me the true motive of thy return.
Halimah then thought it best to repeat what her husband had said, and Aminah's maternal pride was sorely wounded.
