The first Bosnian Muslim poetess was Umihana Čuvidina.
She was born at the end of the 18th century (ca. 1795 - 1870) on the Hrid into the family Čuvid - which was active in the hospitality industry and fruit trade. Her birthplace was on the corner of Mujezin Sokak, in the small Sarajevo district below Kačanik.
After the tragic death of her fiancé, Umihana began to write poetry.
She never recovered from this stroke of fate.
Among the standard-bearers of the Bosnian army was Umihana's fiancé Mujo Čamdži from Bistrik.
According to the historians Sejfudin Kemura and Vladimir Ćorović he died in the fights near Loznica.
