The Blessed Sons of Holy Prophet (S.A.W)

Hazrat Qaasim (R.A)

He (R.A) was the first son born to Hazrat e Sayyidah Khadija (R.A) in Makkah Shareef, prior to the proclamation of Prophethood. The majority of Scholars are unanimous that He (R.A) had passed away at an early age.

Hazrat Abdullah (R.A)

One of the titles given to Hazrat Abdullah (R.A) was Taahir (Pure) , and passed away in infancy prior to the announcement of Prophethood in Makkah Shareef.

Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A)

Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A) was the youngest son of Rasoolullah (S.A.W), who was born to Sayyidah Maria Qibtiya (R.A), in the month of Zul Hijjah, 8 AH in Aaliya, near Madina Shareef.

Hazrat Abu Raafi (R.A), the slave of the Prophet (S.A.W), came to Him (S.A.W) in Madina Shareef from Aaliya bearing the news of Hazrat Ibrahim's (R.A) birth. Hearing this, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) granted Hazrat Abu Raafi (R.A) a slave as a reward for conveying this information to him, and immediately thereafter, Hazrat Jibraeel (A.S) descended and addressed the Prophet (S.A.W) saying, “O’ Father of Ibrahim.” This greatly pleased Rasoolullah (S.A.W), who then slaughtered two rams as Aqeeqah for his newborn son.

He (S.A.W) also shaved the hair of His son, weighed it and gave Sadaqah of silver according to the weight, burying the hair afterwards and keeping His (S.A.W) son's name 'Ibrahim'. Rasoolullah (S.A.W) then appointed Sayyidah Umme Saif (R.A) to nurse and breast feed Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A).

Hazrat Anas (R.A) narrates, “We once accompanied the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) to the house of Hazrat Abu Saif (R.A) while Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A) was near his demise”. Seeing this, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) began to cry, and Hazrat Abdur Rahman bin Auf (R.A) asked, “Ya Rasoolullah (S.A.W), do you also cry?” He replied, “O’ son of Auf (R.A), my crying is due to affection”, and also said the following:

“Although the eye sheds tears and the heart is sad, we shall nevertheless say that which pleases our Lord (S.W.T). Indeed O’ Ibrahim! We are sad because we are being separated from you”.

Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A) was 17 or 18 months old at the time of his passing away. It has been reported that Rasoolullah (S.A.W) buried Hazrat Ibrahim (R.A) in Jannatul Baqi, near the grave of Hazrat Uthman bin Maz'oon (R.A) and sprinkled water on His (R.A) grave with His (S.A.W) own sanctified hands.
