Names of grandchildren of prophet(saws)

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Subhanah blessed and bestowed the Messenger of Allah (saws) with a total of seven children: four dauthers and three sons.  Six of these seven children were from his first marriage to Hadrat Khadijah (r.a.),  and one from Hadrat Maria Kibtiya (r.a.).


From Hadrat Khadijah (r.a.):

  1. Zainab binte Mohamed
  2. Ruqayya binte Mohamed
  3. Umm-Kulthoom binte Mohamed
  4. Fatema binte Mohamed
  5. Qasim ibn Mohamed (died in infancy)
  6. Abdullah ibn Mohamed (died in infancy)


And from Hadrat Maria (r.a.):

7.  Ibrahim ibn Mohamed (died in infancy)


All the Prophet’s (saws) children except Hadrat Fatema (r.a.), died during his (saw’s) lifetime.
