The princes and Princesses of Our Noblest Rasool

Dear Islamic brothers! Allah Almighty granted our Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم 3 princes (sons) رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم and 4 princesses (daughters) رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُنَّ. Here is a brief biography of each of them:

Sayyiduna Qaasim رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ: Was born to Sayyidatuna Khadijah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا before the announcement of Prophethood. This is where our Beloved Rasool’s title Abul-Qaasim originates from. The majority of scholars believe that he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ passed away around the age when he had started to walk. (Zurqaani alal Mawahib, vol. 4, pp. 316)

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ: Was born in Makkah Mu’azzamah before the announcement of Prophethood and passed away in his childhood. Tayyib and Taahir are his (Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ) titles. (Ibid)

Sayyiduna Ibraheem رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ: He was the youngest of the princes. He was born to Sayyidatuna Mariyah Qibtiyyah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا in Zul-Hijjah, 8 AH in an area named ‘Aaliyah near to Madinah Munawwarah, and passed away at the age of 17 or 18 months. (Madarij-un-Nubuwwah, vol. 2, pp. 452-453)

Sayyidah Zaynab رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا: The eldest of the princesses. Born ten years before the announcement of Prophethood, in Makkah Mukarramah. Passed away in 8 AH. (Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 4, pp. 318-319)

Passed away in Ramadan, 2 AH on the day of the battle of Badr at the age of twenty. (Seerat-e-Mustafa, pp. 694; Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 4, pp. 322-324)

Sayyidah Umm-e-Kulsoom رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا: Following the demise of Bibi Ruqayyah رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا, she was married to Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ in Rabi’-ul-Awwal, 3 AH. She رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا passed away in Sha’ban 9 AH. (Sharh-uz-Zurqaani, vol. 4, pp. 325-327)

Sayyidah Fatimah Batool رَضِیَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهَا: The youngest, most cherished, most beloved princess of our Noble Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. She was married to Maula-e-Ka`eenat Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم in 2 AH. All honourable Sayyids anywhere in the world today are the descendants of her two princes, Sayyiduna Imam Hasan and Sayyiduna Imam Husayn رَضِیَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُمَا. She left this mortal world on 3rd Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 11 AH, six months after the apparent demise of our Noble Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.
