PRINCESS AL GHUMAISHA

Once upon a time in a far desert land of Arabian Peninsula. There was a beautiful princess named Al Ghumaisha. She married to a brave and handsome prince named Malik bin An-Nadhr. They loved each other. They had a son named Sulaim. That was why Al Ghumaisha was also called ‘Ummu Sulaim’ (mother of Sulaim).

Even tough Ummu Sulaim and Malik bin An-Nadhr loved each other, they loved Allah more than anything in the world. They both praised Allah, because they realized that Allah had created all creatures and beautiful scenery in the world. They also realized that their love was blessed by Allah. That was why Malik An-Nadhr didn’t hesitate to wage war. He fought the enemies bravely in the name of Allah.

Unfortunately, Malik An-Nadhr was killed in the battle. Ummu Sulaim was upset for that. But she didn’t too sad, because she knew that her husband were still alive in the heaven. Everyday she prayed for her Malik An-Nadhr to Allah.

Knowing that Ummu Sulaim had been a widow, every man on that land wanted to marry her. Her beauty and her beautiful manner had attracted all men, including Abu Thalhah. Abu Thalhah was a brave warrior. He was a great archer. He was kind, handsome, and rich too. He loved Ummu Sulaim deeply. So then, he proposed Ummu Sulaim.

Ummu Sulaim then fell in love with Abu Thalhah. She wanted to be her wife. But unfortunately, Abu Thalhah was not a Moslem. He didn’t praise Allah. He worshiped sculptures. Ummu Sulaim couldn’t marry him, unless he became a Moslem. Then, Ummu Sulaim asked for a requirement. Abu Thalhah could marry her if he became a Moslem. “I ask your faith to Allah as a gift for our wedding,” said Ummu Sulaim.

For his true love, Abu Thalhah did anything to marry beautiful Ummu Sulaim. He then learnt much about Islam and being a Moslem. Finally, he praised Allah. He said, “I vow that no God but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger.” Ummu Sulaim was very happy to hear that. Then they married and lived happily ever after.

Al Ghumaisha, Putri Cantik Yang Mencintai Allah

Pada zaman dahulu kala di Jazirah Arab hidup seorang wanita cantik jelita bernama Al Ghumaisha. Ia menikah dengan seorang ksatria tampan dan gagah berani bernama Malik bin An-Nadhr. Keduanya saling mencintai. Mereka kemudian dikaruiniai seorang anak bernama Sulaim. Sejak itu, Al Ghumaisha dipanggil „Ummu Sulaim“ yang berarti ibu dari Sulaim.

Meskipun Ummu Sulaim dan Malik bin An-Nadhr saling mencintai, namun cinta mereka pada Allah SWT jauh lebih dalam. Mereka berdua beriman kepada Tuhan Pencipta alam semesta dan segala isinya, yaitu Allah SWT. Karena cintanya kepada Allah, Malik bin An-Nadhr tidak takut terjun ke medan perang untuk melawan musuh.

Pada suatu ketika, Malik An-Nadhr gugur di medan perang. Ummu Sulaim bersedih atas kepergian suami tercintanya. Namun kesedihan Ummu Sulaim tidaklah begitu mendalam, karena ia yakin bahwa suaminya telah berada di surga.

Kabar gugurnya suami Ummu Sulaim tersebar ke seluruh Jazirah Arab. Semua orang tahu bahwa Ummu Sulaim telah menjanda. Maka hampir semua pria  di Jazirah Arab ingin menikahi Ummu Sulaim. Mereka terpesona dengan kecantikan dan keluhuran budi Ummu Sulaim, termasuk Abu Thalhah.

Abu Thalhah adalah seorang ksatria pemberani. Ia seorang pemanah ulung yang kaya raya. Wajahnya tampan dan baik hatinya. Ia sangat mencintai Ummu Sulaim. Kemudian Abu Thalhah melamar Ummu Sulaim.

Ummu Sulaim pun jatuh cinta pada Abu Thalhah. Namun sayangnya Abu Thalhah belum beriman pada Allah SWT. Saat itu, Abu Thalhah masih menyembah berhala. Akhirnya, Ummu Sulaim mengajukan syarat pada Abu Thalhah. “Wahai Abu Thalhah, aku bersedia menjadi istrimu, jika engkau beriman pada Allah SWT dan rasul-Nya,” ujar Ummu Sulaim.

Demi cintanya, Abu Thalhah menyanggupi syarat itu. Akhirnya Abu Thalhah mengucapkan dua kalimat syahadat dan menjadi seorang muslim. Ummu Sulaim dan Abu Thalhah pun menikah. Mereka hidup bahagia selamanya.
