Prophet’s daughters


According to my research as a shia, the prophet(pbuh) did actually have four daughters while most shias claim Fatima(as) was his only daughter. Where Zainab, Umm kulthum and ruqayyah also the prophet’s daughters?


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

yes, that’s correct. He (s) had 4 daughters. And the names are as mentioned. Sayyidah Faatimah al-Zahra (s) is usually remembered as his only child because most of His (s)’s  children  died before He did and His holy generation continued through the Lady of light; Sayyidah Faatimah (s).

kind regards,
