About Rayhna bint Zayd ibn Amr al-Qurayza

Rayhna bint Zayd ibn Amr was a Jewish woman from the Banu Qurayza tribe. Her relationship with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is disputed. Rayhana was originally a member of the Banu Nadir tribe who married a man from the Banu Qurayza. According to Ibn Ishaq, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) took her as a maiden and offered her to become his wife if she accepted Islam, but she refused.

Rayhana was originally a member of the Banu Nadir tribe who married a man from the Banu Qurayza. After the Banu Qurayza were defeated by the armies of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the Siege of the Banu Qurayza neighborhood, Rayhana was among those enslaved, while others were killed.

Even though Rayhana is said to have later converted to Islam, she died as Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) chattel. According to Marco Schller, Rayhana either became the Prophet's concubine or, was married to him and later divorced.

Ibn Sa'd writes and quotes Waqidi that she was manumitted but later married by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). According to Al-Halabi, Muhammad married and appointed dowry for her. It is further narrated that, upon marriage, she refused to wear the hijab, causing a rift between her and Muhammad. The couple later reconciled. She died young, shortly after Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) hajj and was buried in Jannat al-Baqi cemetery. Ibn Hajar quotes a description of the house that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave to Rayhana after their marriage from Muhammad Ibn al-Hassam's History of Medina
