Dear Brother / Sister,
- We understand from verse 50 of the chapter of al-Ahzab that the Prophet (pbuh) had maternal and paternal aunts.
- The Prophet (pbuh) had six paternal aunts. Their names were Bayda, Barra, Atika, Safiyya, Arwa, Umayma. Atika, Safiyya and Arwa were believers.
- The Prophet (pbuh) had two maternal aunts called Farida and Fahita. Both of them died before he was given the duty of prophethood.
