Ok, who can relate for us the story of how Zaynab, radi Allahu 'anha, migrated to Madinah, and what trouble/difficulty did she have on the way?

Walaikum assalam warahmatulahi wabarakatuhu
Zainab, the daughter of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam , (after the battle of Badr) paid the ransom of her husband Abul-'As with a necklace. The Muslims released her prisoner and returned the necklace in deference to the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam but on condition that Abul-'As allow Zainab to migrate to Madinah, which he actually did.
(From "The Sealed Nectar")
Can't wait for tomorrow :-)

As Zaynab radi Allahu anha and her brother in law Kinanah were moving out of the town on camel's back, the Quraish sent a party to intercept them. A spear was flung at her which wounded her and made her fall from the camel. She was pregnant at the time and she suffered a miscarriage.
Kinanah started sending arrows towards the interceptors when Abu Sufyan said to him:
"We cannot let the daughter of Muhammad leave Makkah so openly. Let her go back and you can send for her secretly after a few days."
Kinanah agreed and Zaynab radi Allahu anha was left Makkah after a few days. She suffered from this wound for a long time till at last she died of the wound in 8 A .H.
The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wasallam said at the time of her death:
" She was my best daughter for she has suffered much in the path of Allah."
