Ḥalīma al-Saʿdīyya (Arabic: حَلیمة السَعدیّة) is the Prophet's (s) wet nurse and foster mother. She fed the Prophet (s) after Thuwayba.

Soon after she started nursing the Prophet (s), many blessings showed up in her life.

The Prophet (s) stayed in Banu Sa'd tribe until he was 4 or 5. Historians related the fabricated event of Shaqq al-Sadr to this period.

The Prophet (s) respected Halima, and on several occasions helped her generously.
