Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa sallam) had 8 children

Shaykh of shias as-Saduq narrated in his book “al-Khisal” (p 404-405)



115- (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father and Muhammad ibn al-Hassan – may God be pleased with them – narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah al-Barqy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Hamzih, on the authority of Abi Basir, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (alaihi salam), “The Prophet brought six offspring from Khadijah – two boys named Qasim and Tahir who was also called Abdullah and four daughters who are Umm Kulthum, Ruqayah, Zaynab and Fatimah. Ali ibn Abi Talib (alaihi salam) married Fatimah (alaihi salam). Abul As ibn Rabia, who was one of the Umayyads, married Zaynab. Uthman ibn Affan married Umm Kulthum but she died before the marriage was consummated. When Uthman went to the Battle of Badr, the Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) married off Ruqayah to him. The Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) also had a son named Ibrahim from Maria al-Qibyiyya who is also called Umma Ibrahim and Um’ma Valad.

116-Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid – may God be pleased with him – narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid, on the authority of Abu Ali al-Vaseti, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Ismat, on the authority of Yahya ibn Abdullah, on the authority of Amr ibn Abil Miqdam, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (alaihi salam), “Once when God’s Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) entered his house, he (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) heard that Ayesha was yelling at Fatimah (alaihi salam). She was saying, ‘O Khadijah’s daughter! I swear by God that you believe that your mother was better than us. What was in her that made her nobler than us?’ Fatimah who was listening to her cried when she saw the Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali). The Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) looked at her and asked, ‘O daughter of Muhammad! Why are you crying?’ She replied, ‘Ayesha mentioned my mother’s name with disrespect and I cried.’ The Prophet of God (sallalahu alaihi wa ali) became angry, turned to Ayesha and said, ‘O Homeyra! Be silent. The Blessed the Sublime God has honored kind women who give birth to children. Khadijah – may God may have mercy upon her – has brought two sons from me. The first one is called Tahir, Abdullah or Mutah’har. The second one is called Qasim. Khadijah has delivered four daughters for me who are Fatimah (alaihi salam), Ruqayah, Umm Kulthum and Zaynab. However, you are one whom God has made barren and have not given birth to any child for me.”

Curse of Allah, angels and all people be upon those infidels which say that he (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) had only one daughter – Fatima!
