Hind was not name of the wife of prophet Muhammad. It was name of a sahabi Abu Sufian. Fame behind this name is cruelity with the dead body of suhabi Ameer Hamza (a commander & general from Muslim Army at that time).
* the word suhabi or sahabi means a person who has met or seen personally to the prophet Muhammad (in this context).

To be more specific Hind is a group of camels that reach to a 100. It is also a well known fact that one of the prophet's wives was called Hind Bint Abi Omaya (Umm Salamah). The name itself was never known for its cruelty, it was rather the cruelty of one of its bearers.

Not the name of one of Mohammad's (sws) wives, rather the name of a woman who sought vengence from him for the death of her family/relatives, she later became a strong Muslim. In essense the name Hinid or Hind means "strong woman," "female leader," and/or "warrior."

I heard that Hind was associated with the prophet, or the prophet's tribe. But, in any case, that she was clairevoyant and foresaw the coming of enemies some 40 days away from their community to destroy them. She warned the elders of her vision and they were dubious. They did, however, send out sentries who confirmed her vision, and they made preparations which saved the tribe from the oncoming invasion.

This was not the name of one of the wives of the prophet Mohammad, peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him, but the name of the wife of one of his companions (Abu Sufian ibin Harb).

Hend or Hind it can be spelled both ways, it's an Arabic name meaning the country India. In Arabic they say Hend, in English they say India. Hend=India (understand?) it doesn't mean camels or anybody's wife. I don't know where you get your information but you should change the meaning because it is completely WRONG!

My name is Hend, it's an Arabic name and I'm Arab.. It doesn't mean the country "India"! It's so stupid of anyone to think that it could mean that XD
Actually India = Al-Hend NOT Hend and don't tell me it's the same!

The truth is our ancestors (old Arab) used to call the convoy of camels "Hend" (usually about 100 to 200 camels). We don't use this word anymore! Instead, we use "Qafela".. And it's true that one of the prophets' wives was named Hend (Um Salamah).
It also a name for the sword (besides Al-Saif).
And I heard some southern Arab call the grilled corn Hend.

My question is, does the word HIND means GREENISH? OR HOW DO YOU CALL GREENISH LAND?

It was indeed the name of one of the prophet's wives (saw). Umm Salama is a kunya, her name was Hind bint Abi Ummayah. And yes, it does mean "India" in classical Arabic. At that time it was seen as an exotic land and the name, when given to a female (some males were called Hind too) was with the expectation that she would become a lavish woman with an expensive dowry. Khadidja (ra) also had children, boy and girl that were named Hind, before the ones she had with Rasulullah (saw).
