Zaneerah al-Rumiya (Arabic: زنيرة الرومية, Zaneerah the Roman) (other transliterations include Zaneera, Zannirah, Zanira or in some sources Zinnirah) was a Sahabia and among the slaves freed by Abu Bakr.
When Abu Jahl knew of her conversion, he beat her to the extent that she lost her eyesight. He told her that Al-lāt and Al-‘Uzzá (two idols in pre-Islamic Mecca that the Quraysh tribe worshipped) had made her blind because of her disbelief in them. She replied:
"And what makes Al-lat and Al-'Uzza know who is worshiping them? This is from the heavens and my god can return my eyesight”
The next day her sight was miraculously restored.
