Ruqayyah Bint Muhammad (ra)

Today we will be talking about Ruqayyah bint Muhammad (Radiallah-hu-Anha), the second daughter of Muhammad (peace be upon him).

She was born three years after the birth of Zainab (Radiallah-hu-Anha). Initially, Ruqayyah was married to Utbah ibn Abu Lahab, the son of Arch enemy of Muhammad (peace be upon him). When Islam was declared, Abu lahab called his sons, Utbah and Utybah to divorce their wives, Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum respectively.

Later on in life, Allah gave Hadhrat Ruqayyah better partner in form of Uthman ibn Affan((Radiallah-hu-Anhu)

When the cruelty of Quraysh increased, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) permitted some of his companions to migrate to Abyssinia. Among them were Ruqayyah (Radiallah-hu-Anha) and her husband Uthman (Radiallah-hu-Anhu). While they were living in Abyssinia, they were blessed with a son, whom they named, Abdullah. Unfortunately, he died at the tender age of six.

Later on, they came back to Mecca and eventually migrated to Medina. Owing to her travels she is often called as “the lady with two Migrations.”
During the battle of Badr she fell sick and therefore Uthman (Radiallah-hu-Anhu) had to stay back with his ailing wife on the advice of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Narrated by Ibn Umar (RA):

1. Uthman did not join the Badr battle because he was married to one of the daughters of Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) and she was ill. So, the Prophet (PBUH) said to him, “You will get a reward and a share (from the war booty) similar to the reward and the share of one who has taken part in the Badr battle.”Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 359

Hadhrat Ruqayyah passed away on the same day that the battle of Badr was won, i.e. two years after her migration in 2AH. Since Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was still at the battle ground he could not attend the funeral of his daughter. Hadhrat Ruqayyah (Radi-allahu-anha) was buried in the al-Baqi Cemetery in Medina. She was the first of Prophet’s beloved daughters to depart from this world.


  1. Assalamalaikum,it might have been very tough on our prophet (pbuh)...comparatively the tests faced by our messenger is far difficult than our ummah members...i feel reading this Hadith��

  2. Alhamdulila May Allah peace and blessings be upon the prophet and may he guide us on to the right path 🤲🏾🤲🏾🤲🏾🤲🏾🙏🏽🙏🏽

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
