--------------------

Ruqayyah is viewed as the daughter of Muhammad and Khadijah bint Khuwaylid by Sunni Muslims[citation needed], other Muslim sects such as Shia Muslims debate her being daughter of Muhammed (or even of Khadijah) (see Genealogy of Khadijas daughters). She died in 2 AH (624 CE).[citation needed]

[edit] Marriage & children

She was first married to Utbah ibn Abu Lahab. His father, Abu Lahab, forced Utbah to repudiate Ruqayyah due to Abu Lahab's opposition to Muhammad and his teachings. Muslim convert Uthman ibn Affan had long admired Ruqayyah and was then able to ask for her hand in marriage.[1] Ruqayyah's son was Abd-Allah ibn Uthman, who died when he was 2 years old.[citation needed]

[edit] Migration to Abyssinia

She participated in the Migration to Abyssinia.[citation needed]

[edit] Dispute over being daughter of Muhammad &/or Khadijah

Main article: Genealogy of Khadijah's daughters

The daughters attributed to Muhammad are;

Zainab bint Muhammad, married to her maternal cousin Abu al-Aas ibn al-Rabee before al-Hijra

The daughters attributed to Muhammad are;

Zainab bint Muhammad, married to her maternal cousin Abu al-Aas ibn al-Rabee before al-Hijra

Ruqayyah bint Muhammad, was first married to Utbah ibn Abu Lahab & then to Uthman ibn Affan

Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, was first married to Utaybah bin Abu Lahab & then to Uthman ibn Affan after the death of her sister Ruqayyah

Fatimah, was married to Ali ('Ali bin Abi Talib)

According to some Shia Muslim sources she only had one daughter, Fatimah. The others either belonged to her sister[2] or were orphaned girls raised by her[3]. Possibly, all of them were Khadijah's but only Fatimah was born to Muhammad.[citation needed] Sunni Muslims however do not contest the parentage of her daughters.[citation needed] They affirm what the Qur'an states, "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers..."[4].[citation needed]

The famous Sunni scholar Yusuf ibn abd al-Barr says: "His children born of Khadīja are four daughters; there is no difference of opinion about that".[5]

Marriage rules

Based on narrations found even in Sunnī[6] sources, Muhammad said that daughters of his household could only marry those who were from Banū Hāshim.[6].

But(if it is assumed that Zainab, Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum were daughter of Muhammed and Khadijah) this argument does not seem to be correct as:

Zainab was married to Abu al-Aas ibn al-Rabee who belonged to Banu Abd Shams clan of the tribe Quraish.

Ruqayyah and after her death Umm Kulthum were married to Uthman bin Affan who belonged to Banu Umayya clan of the tribe Quraish[7].
