Were Haman and Pharaoh relatives?

The Details of the Question

- I have heard that Haman and Pharaoh were related by blood. Is it true?
- Are there any sound hadiths mentioning it?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We could not find any hadith narration stating that Haman was a relative of Pharaoh.

Haman mentioned in the Quran should be a minister of Pharaoh, with whom the Prophet Musa (­Moses) struggled, or one of the important figures in his palace, or the high priest of the cult of Amon.
