Posted on: June 5, 2008


Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had children from only two of his wives. They were Sayyadah Khadijah (radi Allahu anha) and Sayyadah Maria Qibtiya (radi Allahu anha).

Sayyadah Khadijah (Radi Allahu Anha)

This noble lady belonged to the Quraish tribe. She is also known as “Khatijatul Kubra” or “Khadijah the Great.”

Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) married her when he was 25 years old and she was 40 years old. She was a very devoted wife, companion and councillor, ever ready to stand by Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in all trials and tribulations. She proved to be an immense support and help to the Cause of Islam. She passed away at the age of 65 years on the 11th of Ramadaan – 10 years after the first revelation. Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has said about her: “The noblest women of the world are Sayyadah Mariam (alaihis salaam) and Sayyadah Khadijah (radi Allahu anha).” (Bukhari Shareef)

Sayyadah Khadijah (radi Allahu anha) had 6 children. They were:

  1. Sayyiduna Qasim (radi Allahu anhu): He was the eldest son and passed away in infancy.

dear Brothers and sisters, The family Tree flourishes with A Son in the family, and not the daughter, please tell me how many sons of Prophet Mohammad S.A.W got married and had more sons to flourish and maintain the family tree of Prophet Mohammad S.A.W.

if you check the family tree from hazrat adam a.s. to prophet mohmmad s.a.w there are i think 82 generation’s head of the family’s name mentioned please also tell me if within those names is there any woman’s name mentioned to continue the family tree?
JAZAKALLAH KHAIR
SAFWAN BILAL

The family tree does indeed flourish with a son, who is the heir. However anatomically, the daughter also belongs to the father and will be called by his name on the day of judgement. Fatima bint Muhammed is the daughters name who had children to continue the anatomical family of the prophet (saw) and thus his blood circulates in their progeny, although they are not necessarily successors in terms of prophethood.

i would like to mention that hazrat Ali r.a was the first cousin of Rasool e Khuda SAWW as he was son of hazrat abu talib so they both were hashmis so the family chain was the same

May Allah SWT reward you for your good deeds in this world and hereafter Ameen.

Aap Nabi-E-Karim Sallaho Alaihi Wasallam Aapke 2 Sahabzade Hain Aapka Name Taheb Aur Tahir Hain Aur Aap Ko Ramdan Ki 1st Tarikh Ko Katil-E-Aal-E-Rasool Ne Katl Kar Diya Tha Aapki Shahadat Ka Zikr Kisi Kitaab Me Nahi Milega.
Kyoki Katil-E-Aal-E-Rasool Aaj Bhi Moujood Hai I Mean Unki Napaak Aulaad.

I Really Like This Website Alot! It Helped Me Do My Home work! Jazakallah hu khaiyrun for it

dear safwan/maryam
in islam there is no difference between man and women they are equall
except men are a little better.
when the parents of janabe Maryam asked for a mannat and said they will give it in service of allah they were astonished to see when maryam a daughter was born.

MEN ARE NOT A LITTLE BETTER,,THEY ARE BOTH EQUAL YOU ARE A MAN SO THATS WHY YOU ARE SO DEFENSIVE :(

Dear Sumaya,
No one is better except those who have good deeds. Taqwa is basis. Who is more Mutaqqi, he is more better. In this Worldly situation and circumstances, every one is better in their sphere.
Qur’an said in specific context not giving supremacy on each other but giving understanding to do your designated jobs.

Best Regards.

Mr. Zaheer is absolutly right, people who are Mutaqqi are more better if men or women.

A pious person thinks that he is the worst of the worst and evil person thinks he is great. Only my Alllah is the greatest. we should think we are the worst of the worst

Men and Women are equal and have different obligations and rights, Men has more responsibilities and that is why, which they often forget, afzaliyat is in the full fulfillment of those responsibilities. Nothing else.

ASSALAMOALAYKOM WARAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATUHU BROTHERS AND SISTERS AS I KNOW THAT PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW)HAS TWO SONS AND THEY BOTH PASSED AWAY DURING THE INFANCY.SO THE FAMILY TREE COMES ALL FROM THE DAUGHTERS SALLALAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM.

ASSALAMOALAYKOM WARAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATUHU, Dear sister adding to your knowledge that Muhammad PBUH had three sons.as mentioned above Qasim, Abdullah and Ibrahim. And four daughters.

Yes you are exactly right, (P) married 13 ladies in his life and his first wife Khadija and last wife Mariam give birth to son but they all died at infancy. this itself is a proof of Gods curse for his false prophet hood at his age of 40, exactly after 15 years of his marriage with khadija who had an uncle well versed with the Jews Scriptures and Injil and revelation of Christians. if you look at all other prophet you will see that they were called and separated for prophet hood, and the successors of Aron was given the charge of leading the worship through Moses.

Masha allah i love my nabee and my allah who created me..

Mashallah brother, what a great effort.. i love to share your article on my blog.. i wish you allowed me at an earliest to spread this valuable information as much as i can…

That is great zajakallah

Jazzakumullahu khairan

jazzakumullahu khairan

how many wife of prophet mohammad

This website is very educative. I thank you much because you have cleared most of the questions I have about the prophet Muhammad’s wives and children. please send any articles in respect of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) lifes, children and wives to my email:belohk3@yahoo.com

The life History of (P) Mohamed is an eye opening message to all the readers who have some sense and self esteem. (P) got his first revelation at his age of 40, almost 15 years after his marriage with the rich bussiness lady Khadija who had a wise uncle Waraqa Ben Naufal who is well versed with the scriprures of Jews and Injil and Revalation of Christians. mohamed was a servent of Kadeeja from his young age and after marriage at the age of 25 he was in constant touch with Naufal who translated him the text to get immense knowledge about GOD’s words. after he learned the same he revealed it in his own mother tounge Arabic and rediculed his illiterate people and become an Idol to all his followers. what a deception to the Just GOD. !!!!!!

@ abi malaik
This is a website of my nabi (saw) so I’m not gna use brutal language on u..if u r not a follower of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) then why did you even visit this site! If you’ve got nothing good to say dn keep your bogus opinion to yourself! You’ll know what’s true when you die,so I suggest you start repentin now for your disbeliefs.

Asalaamu alaykum dear brother, I have read this and your other post. I do wonder why you would visit or post here if you were not a follower of Sayyuna Muhammad (s.a.w.). Please understand that it was not a curse, but the will of Allah and he said that Muhammad (s.a.w.) is not the father of any of your men. In His infinite wisdom he did not send the last prophet to a group of men, but to all mankind. If he had sons, a lineage would claim him; whereas, now we can all claim him equally. And Allahul ‘alimal Hakim (God is the All-knowing and Most wise).

Males are hemizygous, receiving their only X chromosome from their mothers. Females are heterozygous, inheriting X chromosomes from both parents. Now tell me who is carrying more genes of the Prophet in their blood, and passing it to the further generations..the female X chromosomes never get destroyed, the women of today still are carrying the genes of Eve “the first women” but not the sons….

RasoolAllah (SM) had 14 wives. Here are 12. Who are the other 2? Sayyadah Maria Qibtiya (Radi Allahu Anha) “had born a son, Sayyiduna Ibrahim (radi Allahu anhu), who passed away in infancy.” What does these quoted words mean? Was Sayyiduna Ibrahim (radi Allahu anhu) a grandson of Prophet (SM)? Its unclear from the statement. Can the writer (or anyone else) please clarify?

Asalaamu alaykum dear brother, I have not heard that he had married 14 women. I had heard he had married 11, and was married to 9 at one time due to the deaths of Khadijah (alayha wasalaam) and Zaynab bint Khuzaimah (r.a.) The 12 that were listed here included Maria Qibta (r.a.) who was given to him as a gift, and I was unaware that they were ever married. My teacher says they were not.

loh bhi tou, Qalam bhi tou, taeira wajood AlQitab, the person we are talking about had created a Ummah, and billions of followers,

he would have written all of it like U wanted but because He was, who He was, i was insignificant for him ……
