Uhud then fall of Mecca, Hind bint Utbah some haditha

arabian(ish) encampment.
pagan Meccan of al Uzza and Hubal, at battle of Uhud.

Uhud 625 ce.
The polytheistic army arrived at al-Abwaa (an area near Madina where Aminah, our Master Muhammad's mother was buried fifty years ago)

On reaching Al-Abwa’, Hind bint ‘Utbah, Abu Sufyan’s wife, suggested that they dig up the grave of the Prophet ’s mother, but the leaders of the army refused to do so for fear of the consequent results.'

'Hind bint Utbah stood among the women beating on drums behind the men to urge them on.' Islamic Battles:Uhud.

One of the women, whom we shall hear of again later, was Amrah bint Alqama, and there were also some songstresses who carried tambourines and drums.

'The battlefield where the Muslim martyrs lay was invaded by Hind and the Quraish women.'
Quarish are a tibe of Mecca, that Mohammed was born into.

Another brave sister, a companion of the Prophet (peace be upon him), Asma bint Yazeed, is similarly reported to have killed nine enemy soldiers...' moslem side.

'The most famous of her participation is that of the battle of Uhud, where, in the midst of the confusion among the Muslim army, she was amongst those very few who were close to the Prophet (peace be upon him), and who were shielding the Prophet (peace be upon him) with their own bodies.' moslem side.

''Abu Dujana spared her saying: ‘I respect the Prophet ’s sword too much to use it on a woman.’ The woman was Hind bint ‘Utbah.''

after the fall of Meccca. circa 630 ce.
'Just before Muhammad took Mecca, Sufyan went out to Muhammad and was coerced into accepting Islam, or be killed'

'In a version by ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair that his father had said: By Allah, I was watching the servants of Hind bint ‘Utbah and her women friends fleeing with their garments gathered up.'

'Hind had previously desecrated dead Muslim bodies after the battle of Uhud.'

'With her was Hind bint Utbah, the wife of Abu Sufyan and the mother of Muawiyah, and about ten other women who wanted to pledge allegiance to the Prophet.'

When the men had pledged their faith, the women took the oath, including Hind bint Utbah, the wife of Abu Sufyan'

The true, sincere Muslim woman understands the heavy burden that Islam has placed on her shoulders, by obliging her to be a good wife to her husband, to surround him with care and meet his every need, to give him enjoyment, and to renew his energy so that he may fulfil his mission in life.'

these and other.

hadithra Aeysha. Aisha, a wife of the Prophet discribed the daughter of Hind as the daughter of a fornicating woman. (this might refer to Hind bint Utbah getting preggo before wedlock with Abu Sufyan - who was bribed to marry her).
- Jadkhira, dikir Khwaarij p62.
