Biography of Prophet Muhammad’s Parents

Prophet Muhammad’s Parents ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the biography of Prophet Muhammad’s parents. In the previous article, I said, that he was born to a married couple named Abdullah and Aminah. Thus, he is the Prophet Muhammad bin Abdullah and Aminah.

Previously I wanted to say, that the genealogy of the father of Prophet Muhammad (Abdullah) and the genealogy of his mother (Aminah) met at Qushai. The explanation is as below;

Abdullah was the son of Abdul Muthallib bin Hashim bin Abdul Manaf bin Qushai bin Kilab bin Murrah bin Ka’ab bin Luay bin Ghalib bin Fihr bin Malik bin bin Nadlar bin Kinanah bin Khuzaimah bin Mudrikah bin Ilyas bin Mudlar bin Nazar bin Ma’ad bin ‘Adnan.

Whereas Aminah was the son of Wahab bin Abdu Manaf bin Zahrah who was married to Barrah binti Abdul ‘Uzza bin Uthman bin Abduddar bin Qushai.

As for the statement that the words of the two parents of the Prophet Muhammad met in Qushai are as follows;

Qushai married Hubba bint Halil bin Habasyiah bin Salul bin Ka’ab bin Amru al-Khuza’i. from the marriage they had four sons (Abdu Manaf bin Qushai (or Mughirah bin Qushai), Abduddar bin Qushai, Abdul ‘Uzza bin Qushai, and Abdu Qushai bin Qushai) and two daughters (Takhmar bint Qushai and Barrah binti Qushai).

Abdu Manaf married ‘Atikah bint Murrah bin Hilal bin Falij bin Dzakwan bin Tsa’labah bin Bahtsah bin Salim bin Manshur bin ‘Ikrimah. They both have three children; Hashim bin Abdu Manaf, Abdu Shams bin Abdu Manaf, and Muttallib bin Abdu Manaf. Abdu Manaf is also married to Waqidah binti ‘Amru al-Maziniyah (Mazin bin Manshur bin ‘Ikrimah) and has a son who is named Naufal bin Abdu Manaf. So, all Abdu Manaf’s children are four.

Hasyim bin Abdu Manaf has four sons; Abdul Muthallib bin Hashim, Asad bin Hasyim, Abu Shaifi bin Hashim, Nadlalah bin Hashim. He also has five daughters; Syifa ‘binti Hasyim, Khalidah binti Hadyim, Dla’ifah binti Hasyim, Ruqaiyyah binti Hasiym, and Hayyah binti Hasyim. Mrs. Abdul Mutallib bin Hasyim and Ruqaiyyah bint Hasyim were Salma binti ‘Amru bin Zaid bin Labid bin Khadasy bin ‘Amir bin Ghanam bin ‘Addi bin Najjar.

Abdul Mutahallib bin Hasyim had ten sons (Abbas, Hamzah, Abdullah, Abu Talib, Zubair, Harith, Jahla, Muqawwim, Dlarara, Abu Laham) and six daughters (Shafiyah, Ummu hakim al-Baidla, ‘Atikah, Amimah , Arwa, Barrah). Abdullah, Abu Talib, Zubair and all his daughters except Shafiyah, they were children of Abdul Muttallib bin Hashim from his marriage to Fatima binti ‘Amru bin’ Aidz bin ‘Imran bin Makhzum Yaqdhah bin Murrah bin Ka’ab bin Luay bin Ghalib bin Fihr bin Malik son of Nadlar. While the other children are from his marriage with his other wives.

Abdullah bin Abdul Mutallib married Aminah bint Wahab. They both have one son named Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.

Abdullah is a child who is dedicated to his parents. It was proven that he had once refused a woman who wanted to marry him. The woman offered her to Abdullah to get married. But Abdullah refused it on the grounds that he did not want to fight his father.

After that Abdul Muthallib married Abdullah with a very beautiful woman who had an honorable position in the Quraysh tribe. The woman named Aminah, mother of the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. She is a very lucky woman in this world, because Allah’s lover (the prophet Muhammad) was born from her womb.

All readers! That is a brief explanation of Prophet Muhammad’s parents. If you want to ask, please ask!

I think that is enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!

See you again in the next article!
