Ibrahim, the infant son of Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.A.)
Compiled By: Syed Ali Shahbaz
On 18th of the Islamic month of Rajab in 9 AH, Ibrahim, the infant son of Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) died at the age of a year and six months. His mother was the virtuous lady Maria Qibtiyya (Mary the Copt), who was sent as a gift to the Prophet from the Byzantine governor of Egypt, Muqawqis, along with other presents, in response to the letter of invitation to Islam.
The Prophet wept at his death and personally laid him in the grave in the Baqie Cemetery, addressing the dead child with tearful eyes that this is all the will of God. Earlier in his youth the Prophet had also lost to the cold hands of death his two infant sons by the faithful wife, Khadija al-Kubra (SA). They were named Qassim and Abdullah.
